Moon Alert

After 6:30 AM EDT today, avoid shopping or important decisions. The Moon is in Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is another playful day; and it is even more creative than yesterday. Since you are the artisan of the zodiac, make use of this wonderful influence. It's a poor day to shop or make important decisions (see Moon Alert); but it's a wonderful day to party, have picnics, enjoy sports and playful times with children.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You will enjoy staying at home today and puttering around your digs. Don't set the bar too high because you won't feel like working too much. However, you will enjoy relaxing at home and possibly, entertaining family and friends.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a fabulous day for creative thought, which means writers and anyone who wants to explore their mental creativity will be productive. Enjoy chatting with siblings, neighbours and relatives. Resist the urge to buy anything other than food and gas.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You will enjoy puttering at home and taking care of your possessions today because you tend to identify with something that you own, which is why you might want to fix something or clean it. Financial discussions will be creative; but wait until tomorrow to act.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The Moon is in your sign today, which makes you more emotional than usual. However, it also brings you a bit of extra good luck. Use this good fortune to have a good time and enjoy schmoozing with others. It's a poor day to shop for anything other than food and gas.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will enjoy solitude in beautiful surroundings today because you have the urge to withdraw from the busyness of the world around you. This is the perfect day to kick back and relax. Make no demands on yourself or others. Just take it easy.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You are a social sign, which is why you will enjoy today because this is a social day! Make contact with others. Enjoy the company of friends or people in groups. Share your hopes and dreams for the future with someone to hear what their feedback is.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Personal details about your private life might be public today. Don't worry because regardless of what is said, it will just disappear into the ether. No one means you any harm and people are basically not interested. Enjoy your day. Think about your life direction in general - do you like where you're headed?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Look around you because you want adventure and a chance to learn something new today. This is a poor day for practical decisions and major purchases; however, it's a great day to hang out with others and explore new ideas. Meet new faces and people from different backgrounds.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although your focus might be on red-tape details concerning inheritances, insurance matters, taxes, debt and shared property, this is a poor day to make decisions about these issues. Instead, do your homework and wait until tomorrow to act.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today the Moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This simply requires compromise, patience and accommodation. In two weeks, the Moon will be in your sign, and others will have to accommodate you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You have the urge to get better organized today. Good luck because despite your good intentions, you will prefer leisure over duty and obligations. Just get a few things done and congratulate yourself because this is an easy-going, laid-back day.
