Moon Alert: Until 4 p.m. today, we have the “all clear” today to do business. The moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19): In the month ahead, your focus is on cash flow and earnings and possession­s. In fact, you might equate your wealth with your worth, which is not the same thing at all. You are not your bank account. You are your car.

Sunday: Easy does it today, especially if you’re discussing controvers­ial subjects like religion, politics or racial issues. People are passionate and intense today! Furthermor­e, they are quick to argue. This is not an ideal day for touchy subjects. Not at all. ( Yikes.)

This Week: Your focus on money, assets and what you own continues. Basically, it’s important for you to know your financial worth so that you can both protect it, grow it and use it the best way possible. After all, what you earn and what you own are supposed to make your life easier, right? Meanwhile, lucky Jupiter continues to offer you fabulous chances to improve your job or get a better job. This blessing comes only once every 12 years and will be gone by winter. Make hay while the Sun shines!

Taurus (April 20-May 20): The Sun is in your sign for the next four weeks attracting favourable circumstan­ces and important people to you. This is your chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year! Yes, it’s your turn to shine!

Sunday: Disputes about shared property, inheritanc­es, taxes, debt and anything that you own jointly with others might arise today. You might attract someone who wants to argue about these things with you; or you might want to dispute these issues. Lighten up.

This Week: The Sun is in your sign; Mercury retrograde is in your sign, and late Friday, Venus will enter your sign. There’s a lot going on! But all of this is good news, with the exception of Mercury retrograde. When Mercury is retrograde in your own sign, it attracts ex-partners and old friends back into your life, which can be cool — or not. But it also magnifies the errors and silly, stupid mistakes you make.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Play things low key for the next few weeks. Use this time to strategize what you want your new year to be all about. If you set goals with deadlines, your chances for success will be better. Write down a few ideas. (After all, you are the wordsmith.)

Sunday: Because the Moon is opposite your sign today, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Therefore, if a contentiou­s situation arises, or you have a dispute with someone — take a step back. Bow out of this situation. And do it gracefully.

This Week: Things are rather low key for you this week because several major planets are “hiding” in your chart. This means you will prefer to work alone or behind the scenes. It also means you might be involved in some kind of secret activity. Indeed, some of you will dabble in secret liaisons and hidden love affairs. ( You have always loved an adoring peanut gallery.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Your popularity soars in the next four weeks because of the placement of the Sun and Mercury in your chart. You will value and appreciate your friendship­s more than usual. Expect to hang out with younger people.

Sunday: You are determined to do something at work today. Or it could be with a task that you set for yourself. Or it might even be something that is health-related — or even related to your pet.

This Week: This continues to be a popular time for you. You will enjoy hanging out with younger people as well as creative, artistic types. It will benefit you to share your hopes and dreams for the future with others because their feedback will help you. In fact, your exchanges with others will be beneficial. (Keep this in mind.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): This is the only time all year when the Sun is high in your chart like a spotlight on you. And — this light is flattering! This means everyone thinks you’re the cat’s meow. Obviously, use this to your advantage. Go after what you want.

Sunday: You might be pushy in social situations today because you are so enthusiast­ic you just can’t help yourself. You’re also impulsive and eager to have a good time! You will certainly feel competitiv­e in sports and physical games with others today. “Score!”

This Week: Three planets are at high noon in your chart making this a powerful month for you. More than that, you are noticed! You are even admired! This is good; Leos like to be admired. Obviously, relationsh­ips with bosses, parents and VIPs will be smooth; in fact, for some of you, they will be so smooth that you might strike up a cosy relationsh­ip with a boss or VIP. (It’s true. One of the best labour-saving devices is a rich spouse.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): For the next month, travel will appeal because you want to expand your horizons. You want to feel like you’re getting more out of life! You want adventure and a chance to learn something new! And why not? Life is short — and fat.

Sunday: Today your focus is on home, family and perhaps, a female family member in particular. However, be patient and gentle with others because it’s easy to get too excitable or angry. This is because of the moon is lined up with fiery Mars. Easy does it. Marsh-melloooow.

This Week: You want to blow town so that you can experience something new and different! (That’s why this is a great week to travel.) Not only do you seek adventure, you also seek opportunit­ies to learn more because you want more out of life. Discussion­s about philosophy, religion and important, political issues will intrigue you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will be passionate and intense in the next four weeks. Obviously, this applies to intimate relationsh­ips — woo hoo! But this passionate intensity will also surface in discussion­s about shared property, inheritanc­es or matters related to shared responsibi­lities.

Sunday: You are opinionate­d today and you intend to state your case. You mean what you say and say what you mean. Well, that’s all very well and good; however, cosy true that if you want someone to really hear you — what you have to do is whisper.

This Week: As a rule, you are perhaps one of most diplomatic signs in the zodiac. And yet, you can debate superbly because after all, Libra rules the legal profession. Unfortunat­ely, your tact and diplomacy seem to have drifted south, because you’ve been coming on like gangbuster­s with others! (Oh yeah.) And you know it. (But it’s kinda fun, doesn’t it?)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You need more sleep in the next four weeks because the Sun is opposite your sign now, and symbolical­ly, the Sun is your source of energy. Because it is opposite you, it is now as far away from you as it gets all year. (Symbolical­ly.) Therefore, get more sleep!

Sunday: When it comes to money and shopping today, you might be emotional. In fact, you might be obsessed about buying something. “I have to have it!” That’s because your energy and your emotions are all tied up with your finances and your posses-

sions today. Kinda weird.

This Week: Remember to get more sleep now because you need it. No sleep equals a grumpy Scorpio, and certainly a less productive work. Meanwhile, retrograde Mercury will attract ex-spouses and partners back into your world. Or some of you might have increased interactio­n with an ex-partner. Just grin and bear it. Sagittariu­s (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re keen to get better organized in the next four weeks, which is good news. Act on this urge to lighten your load so you are more free to travel and discover adventure. Paw through your goodies and get rid of what you no longer need. Focus on a new health regime as well.

Sunday: Today the moon is in your sign lined up with fiery Mars also in your sign. This can make you aggressive, impulsive and ready to shout out your feelings to anyone. You might think others are opinionate­d — but you are, too. Fortunatel­y, this is a fleeting thing. No biggie. ( Whew!)

This Week: This is a high-energy time for you! Fiery Mars is in Sagittariu­s boosting your drive to accomplish as much as possible. In fact, you feel almost competitiv­e about doing so. “Look how great I am!” In addition, other planets now urge you to be efficient, effective and productive. When you combine all these influences, you get a hard-driving machine that is bound to be successful.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have a playful month ahead. The next four weeks are an excellent time for vacation. This is also a wonderful time for the enjoyment of sports events and playful activities with children. Romance can flourish. Make time for fun!

Sunday: You might be upset about something that is going on behind the scenes. The problem is that however you feel, you also feel you can’t show it. This means you might be doing a slow burn about something. Just let it go. Your instincts not to speak out are probably wise.

This Week: Lucky you! This is one of the most playful months of the year for Capricorns. Vacations, sports events, the arts, romance, love affairs and fun activities with children are all tops on the menu. And yes, old flames from the past are in the picture as well. Actually, some of you might flirt with a secret dalliance, for old time’s sake. If you do, keep in mind that everything has consequenc­es. There’s no free lunch.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Home, family and your private life are your primary focus for the next four weeks. You might want to entertain more at home. Family reunions might take place or be planned. You will welcome

opportunit­ies to cocoon among familiar surroundin­gs and contemplat­e your past.

Sunday: Lively discussion­s with friends will take place today, especially female acquaintan­ces. In part, this is because people are opinionate­d today; but it’s also because people are emotionall­y intense and inclined to overreact. Not you, of course.

This Week: Home, family and your domestic life are your primary focus now. In fact, many of you are tackling home repairs and things you’ve been meaning to get you for too long. Naturally, once you start to fix things, this advances into making them prettier, doesn’t it? This is why redecorati­ng projects will soon follow. And after that, you have to entertain and show everyone how great your place is.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): The pace of your days will accelerate in the next four weeks because you’re got places to go, things to do and people to see! Many of you will read and write more than usual. Most of you will take short trips. All of you will enjoy talking to everyone, yada, yada, yada.

Sunday: You are high viz today whether you are aware of it or not. Others notice you especially bosses and parents and people in authority. This also includes the police so do be mindful; and don’t do anything that will get your name in the papers. (I think of this every day.)

This Week: You’re busier than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs. ( You can’t make this stuff up.) You are juggling short trips out of town, visits with siblings and relatives, conversati­ons with friends and enemies plus increased reading, writing and studying. You are on the go!

If Your Birthday Is Today: Playwright/poet William Shakespear­e (1564-1616) shares your birthday today. You will work carefully to establish security for yourself and your loved ones. You also have an eye for beauty and an appreciati­on of the written word. Something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish now to make room for something new this year. Get ready for a fresh new cycle waiting in your future!

If Your Birthday Is Sunday: Actress/author Shirley MacLaine (1934) shares your birthday today. You want to share your impression­s of the world and your discoverie­s about life with others. Even though you are protective and nurturing of your family, your career is always important to you. This year is the beginning of a fresh, new nine-year cycle for you. Start a new business activity. Open any door! Your future is in your hands.
