Moon Alert

We have the all-clear today to shop (whether you spend $10 or 10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Do get out of bed today and get dressed. Today the universe owes you a favour! Unexpected windfalls, gifts, goodies and outright cash could fall in your lap. Keep your pockets open. Keep your eyes peeled for opportunities and ways that others want to help you. (Because they do.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Partners and close friends will surprise you today. However, it will probably be fun and exciting. (Unless they leave you with the dog and the flatscreen TV.) Everyone wants more freedom today, including you. You might also have one of those "I need more space" discussions with your main squeeze.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Something at work will go sideways today. Hopefully it's a fun, upbeat thing. However, you could face computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages, surprise events and new, baffling technology. Anything can happen. Very modern or very ancient health tips might intrigue you. ("Do you have to take your clothes off?")

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Unexpected flirtations add zest to your salad. Be open to meeting people from different cultures and different backgrounds. Surprise invitations to something unexpected might be cool. Parents should be extra-vigilant about children because things look loosey-goosey here.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might be excited by the introduction of new technology to your home scene today. Something unusual will occur. Surprise company might drop by. Expected company could be a no-show. Minor appliances might break down. Modern art and wild ideas could perk up the place.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is not a boring day. All kinds of surprises will occur, in part because you have a heightened perception of everything around you. There's electricity in the air! Discussions with others are bold and frank. The pace is lively and interesting, and you're full of bright, out-of-the-box ideas. (They come in a box.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Interesting day for business and commerce. Unusual opportunities to make money definitely exist, especially related to aviation, radio, electronics, computers and technology. It's a money-making day but your window of opportunity is brief. Act fast.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Fresh discoveries and new activities make this an exciting day. You're glad to be alive! (And it sure beats the alternative.) You're particularly interested in learning new things and expanding your sphere of experience of the world. You want to run away and join the circus.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You're very restless today. You have the sense that something's going to happen, and you're probably right - it will. Bright, new ideas, like little epiphanies, are popping in the back of your mind. You might sound like a genius to someone. (You're very good with psycho-babble.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

All group encounters and even casual meetings with acquaintances will hold some surprises today. People could do bizarre things or you might meet someone who's a real character. The suggestions of others -- and possibly your own suggestions -- are candid and unusual.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It's a fascinating day talking to bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. You have bright, innovative ideas and others are willing to listen (and vice versa). How cool is that? Someone might make a mind-blowing suggestion that makes everyone sit up and pay attention. ("Why don't we just tell the truth? No one will believe it!")

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Surprise travel plans or unexpected opportunities to take a course or go to school or get training definitely exist for you today. Be on your toes for these chances. You'll enjoy exploring other cultures, different religions and different lifestyles. Publishing opportunities also exist.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Matt Craven (1956) shares your birthday today. You are confident, attractive and full of personal magnetism. People are impressed with you. Your approach to things is careful, studious and intense. You take your time because you like to master whatever you do so that you can do it well. This has been a year of hard work, building and construction. Next year will be a major change.
