Moon Alert

We have the "all clear" today to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might fall for the impressive rhetoric of someone in politics or religion today. (You can't be blamed. Clever people talk psychobabble every day.) Admittedly, you are primed to believe what you want to believe, which means you can be hoodwinked today.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Double check all details if making important decisions about shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances matters and insurance issues because some element of confusion exists right now. You might be so sympathetic, you're tempted to give away the store.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Important discussions with partners and close friends are subject to confusion today. Initially, they start off with a lot of mutual sympathy and understanding. Nevertheless, something can slip off the tracks, making you feel perplexed and at a loss. ("Whaaat?") Be careful.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might feel sympathetic with a coworker today, which is why you will do whatever you can to help someone else. This is admirable; but make sure that your efforts are not in vain. You can't help someone who is not prepared to help himself. There is something confusing to all this.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might develop a crush on someone today that is quite overwhelming. Or you might feel unusually sympathetic to the needs of children. Either way, your heart is easily touched and your feelings of romance are heightened. Yeah - you're a soft touch.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will enjoy entertaining at home today. You might also want to shop for beautiful things for yourself or a family member. Be careful about going overboard and buying something that is luxurious or too pricey and elegant because it's easy to deceive yourself today.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

In conversation with others today, you might try to make things appear the way you want them to be instead of how they really are. It's because your wishes seem to override the facts. Enjoy daydreams and fantasies today because they won't go away.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be a bit casual about money and cash flow today because of some confusion. Perhaps your expectations were unrealistic or perhaps you're being too casual? Have respect for your hard-earned money and double check everything to do with your finances today.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your idealism is aroused today and this is why you might go overboard buying beautiful treasures for yourself or doing something for someone else. Idealism is a wonderful thing but you also have to pay the bills and face reality. Make sure you know what you're doing.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might be ready to put the wants and needs of someone else before your own wants and needs today. This is a noble impulse but is it wise? There is an element of confusion that can contribute to sloppy, generosity today. Remember: True generosity is giving what is needed.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Friendships are important to you and today, you will want to help a friend, that's for sure. You might also advocate within a group to improve the situation of others, if they are in need. Double check everything you're doing because things might be vague today. Don't be fooled.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

It's easy to be impressed with a boss or someone in a position of authority - in part, because this is always easy. Important, well-dressed people can seem glossy and bigger than life. We all fall for this. But does this person really deserve your respect? Take those rose-coloured glasses off.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Dan Byrd (1985) shares your birthday today. You are an idealist who is a born fighter. You stand up for your ideals and beliefs even in the face of intense opposition. You can be excitable. Friends love your sardonic humour. This year your success lies with others. People will benefit you. Therefore, make friends and join clubs and organizations. Help others because you will also be helping yourself.
