Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a good day to study and learn something new. You might explore different philosophies, religion and political ideals. You might have a serious conversation with someone from afar. Some might even make future travel plans. (One can only hope.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you’ll be productive with red-tape details about inheritances, taxes, insurance issues and such. Get this stuff out of the way so that you can feel pleased with yourself. Your ambition is strong, and Lady Luck is with you because the Sun is in your sign!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A serious discussion with a partner or close friend will yield practical results. Take advantage of this influence because sometimes serious talks go haywire. One person is serious and the other one is out to lunch. Today you can both agree on something.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a productive day for you either at work or with any task that you set for yourself because you are full of common sense and motivated to get things done. Someone older or in a position of authority might influence you or give you advice.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You look great in the eyes of others, especially bosses, parents and VIPs. This is why discussions with authority figures will go well. (People are willing to listen.) Meanwhile, today you can teach or impress young minds. Even they will listen to you!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

An older family member or someone in a position of authority at home or within the family will hold sway today. Be courteous. Listen to what is offered. After all, why not stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before you? Learn from their experience and their mistakes. Eh wot?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a productive day because you’re in a sensible frame of mind. You have the mental tenacity to tackle routine work. You won’t overlook details. You have excellent follow-through. Later – you can reward yourself. (“Fresh horses and whiskey for my men!”)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

If shopping online or doing financial negotiations today, you will be sensible and frugal. No feather boas today! Instead if you do shop, you will choose to buy long-lasting, practical items. You might also attend to banking details and do your best to save money.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today the Moon is in your sign dancing with Saturn, which means you have a wilful acceptance of duty. It will give you pleasure to keep things practical and orderly. Physical comfort will be secondary – results will be first. Expect to get a lot done!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Research of any kind will go well today because you are focused and mentally alert. Furthermore, your personal comfort is secondary to what it is that you actually want to accomplish. Work alone or behind the scenes. You might also research something that you will teach children.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A discussion with someone older or more experienced, probably a female, will be helpful today. It’s a curious how the older you get, you see how smarter your elders are? (My dad left home at 17 and when he returned four years later, he was surprised how much his dad had learned.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Relations with parents and authority figures will go well today because primarily, you are concerned with practical situations. Your approach will be steady Eddie and not flashy. The main thing is you know you want results. You also know the shortest distance between A and B is a straight line.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Stephen Arnell (1981) shares your birthday today. You are a practical, grounded, interested in the truth and telling it like it is. You are organized and like to formulate plans. This is your time of harvest. Yay! Now you will begin to reap the benefits of your efforts in the last decade. You deserve this time of success. Expect to enjoy an increased influence and leadership in your relationships. Yes!
