MOON ALERT: There are no re­stric­tions to shop­ping or im­por­tant de­ci­sions. The moon is in Leo.

IF TO­DAY IS YOUR BIRTH­DAY: Ac­tor Sean Penn (1960) shares your birth­day. Fam­ily is im­por­tant to you. You also like to en­joy a com­fort­able life­style. This year will be more re­laxed for you. Do your best to co­op­er­ate be­cause your in­ter­ac­tions with oth­ers will be im­por­tant. Al­ways look for ways to be kind and help­ful. If you are open when en­gag­ing with oth­ers, your busi­ness and per­sonal re­la­tion­ships will ben­e­fit you.

Aries (March 21-April 19): You are ea­ger to talk to oth­ers, es­pe­cially young peo­ple. You feel so­cially turned on and ex­cited about life. Sports events, the arts and cre­ative ideas ap­peal! (If you have a crush on some­one, to­day you have the courage to make your move.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20): This is a great day for fam­ily dis­cus­sions, es­pe­cially with par­ents. You might de­cide to tackle a DIY project or home re­pair. Re­la­tions with sib­lings and rel­a­tives are good at this time be­cause every­one’s happy to see your face.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): This is an ex­cel­lent day! Your ruler Mercury is lined up with the sun, which makes you su­per talk­a­tive! Blah, blah, blah. This is also a great day to set off on a short trip or to be­gin to study some­thing new be­cause you are ea­ger to learn.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22): You have ex­cel­lent money-mak­ing ideas that you want to share. If you’re in the midst of fi­nan­cial ne­go­ti­a­tions, you will be ef­fec­tive, es­pe­cially be­cause Venus in your sign will help you be skill­ful and diplo­matic. (I’m im­pressed.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): The sun and Mercury are lined up in your sign, which makes you talk­a­tive and ea­ger to share your ideas. You might be ex­cited about be­gin­ning some­thing new. You will en­joy do­ing rou­tine pa­per­work be­cause your mind is clear and sharp!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a fab­u­lous day for re­search be­cause for starters, you’re a re­searcher ex­traor­di­naire; and to­day in par­tic­u­lar, both the sun and Mercury are in a hid­den part of your chart, which makes you keen to work alone or be­hind the scenes to dis­cover hid­den knowl­edge. “Eureka!”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You are a so­cia­ble sign and to­day is a chatty day with friends and mem­bers of clubs, groups and or­ga­ni­za­tions. Par­ents, teach­ers, bosses and peo­ple in au­thor­ity will de­fer to you be­cause you sound like you know what you’re do­ing. Great day to make plans for the fu­ture and re­view goals.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A con­ver­sa­tion with a teacher, par­ent or boss will go well to­day be­cause you will be clear about stat­ing what you want to achieve. Oth­ers will hear you loud and clear, and very likely, they will agree with you. Fun travel plans might be part of your pitch.

Sagittariu­s (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

This is a great day to study or learn some­thing. Like­wise, it’s an ex­cel­lent day to fin­ish an im­por­tant pa­per or a man­u­script. (Ac­tu­ally, it’s also an ex­cel­lent day to be­gin an im­por­tant pa­per or a man­u­script.) You might ex­press your af­fec­tion for some­one, es­pe­cially if it’s a sexy re­la­tion­ship. Woot!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): This is an ex­cel­lent day to sit down with some­one and dis­cuss in­her­i­tances, shared prop­erty, taxes, debt and in­sur­ance is­sues be­cause you will be clear and firm. With Venus op­po­site your sign, peo­ple are more in­clined to agree with you now. (You couldn’t pick a bet­ter day.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You will be clear in your dis­cus­sions with a friend or part­ner about what you want to­day. You might choose to start some­thing new, which means you want them to be on board. You won’t hes­i­tate to ini­ti­ate some­thing and share your ideas. How­ever, re­mem­ber to lis­ten to what they have to say, too.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): This is a good day to start a new busi­ness ven­ture or dis­cuss im­por­tant mat­ters with co-work­ers be­cause there will be a rapid in­ter­change of ideas and plans. You have a good un­der­stand­ing of your needs and you know how to achieve what you want.
