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

IF TO­DAY IS YOUR BIRTH­DAY:

Co­me­dian/ac­tor Dave Chap­pelle (1973) shares your birth­day. You’re sharp, quick and clever. You’re ready to ini­ti­ate. You will soon sense that you are wind­ing up things you be­gan nine years ago by let­ting go of what is no longer rel­e­vant and mov­ing on to some­thing new and dif­fer­ent. Do not think of this as a time of loss. Au con­traire. You are light­en­ing your load to make room for new be­gin­nings!

Aries (March 21-April 19):

Hello world! With your ruler fiery Mars in your own sign, you are primed to ac­com­plish a lot. The key to your pro­duc­tiv­ity will be to keep a fine balance be­tween im­pulse and a steady ef­fort. You can do this!

Taurus (April 20-May 20):

Pri­mar­ily, you’re in play mode. And with Venus in your house of com­mu­ni­ca­tions, you are oh so charm­ing! Nev­er­the­less, to­day you might do some se­ri­ous be­hind-the-scenes plan­ning and qui­etly ac­com­plish some­thing that pleases you.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20):

Home and fam­ily are your fo­cus. (Some are shop­ping for im­por­tant good­ies.) Quite likely, with the help of a friend or sev­eral peo­ple, you will ac­com­plish some­thing that pleases you. “On the count of three, ev­ery­one lift!”

Can­cer (June 21-July 22):

This is a pro­duc­tive day! Venus in your sign makes you diplo­matic. Mars at the top of your chart fires up your am­bi­tion. This means you’re mo­ti­vated and you can talk nice. Mean­while, the sun and Mer­cury want you to get started! That’s all you need!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22):

“Show me the money!” You start this week off de­ter­mined to ac­com­plish some­thing, es­pe­cially in terms of earn­ing money or making some money on the side. (Oh yeah, it’s nice to have bucks in jeans.) Be con­fi­dent in your abil­ity to be pro­duc­tive — and you will be. Make it so.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22):

You have lots of en­ergy be­cause the sun and your ruler Mer­cury are in your sign. You are ea­ger; you are ready; and you want to talk. Ex­pect suc­cess in your deal­ings with oth­ers to­day. Re­mem­ber that “man­age­ment” is sim­ply get­ting things done through other peo­ple. “I’m on it!”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22):

Im­por­tant peo­ple are im­pressed with you right now, which is in­ter­est­ing be­cause you are choos­ing to be low-key. Many of you are work­ing alone or hid­ing some­where. (“We’re in iso­la­tion!”) Take a mea­sured ap­proach to what­ever you do and don’t over­re­act if part­ners or close friends an­noy you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):

You are one of the most pro­duc­tive signs in the zo­diac when you choose to be. In fact, when you are wound up and de­ter­mined, you’re scary! This might be one of those days be­cause you in­tend to ac­com­plish as much as pos­si­ble. It’s a be­gin­ning of the week and you want re­sults!

Sagittariu­s (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

Re­mem­ber that you are high vis­i­bil­ity right now. Peo­ple no­tice you, but the good news is they ad­mire you. (Es­pe­cially bosses, par­ents, teach­ers, VIPs and the po­lice.) This is a very pro­duc­tive day for most signs, which means you can make head­way in any area that you choose. What’s on your list?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

The key for you to start this week off in a pro­duc­tive way is to keep a nice balance be­tween steady ef­fort and im­pulse. (Be­lieve me, you will be tempted to sud­denly go off the rails.) In par­tic­u­lar, some of you will make great strides with home ren­o­va­tion projects and re­pairs.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):

In­stead of skirt­ing the sit­u­a­tion, dive right into prickly de­tails about shared prop­erty, in­her­i­tances and in­sur­ance. Just do it. You’re a strong com­mu­ni­ca­tor this week. Fur­ther­more, you will be diplo­matic and skill­ful deal­ing with co-work­ers. Natch!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20):

You have a strong fo­cus on part­ners and close friends right now. In fact, to­day you feel play­ful, which means it might be hard to crank your en­gine and get to work. But once you do de­cide to be pro­duc­tive, you will do so! (Re­mem­ber Yoda? “You will!”)
