SUNDAY, MAY 20
MOON ALERT Caution: avoid shopping or making important decisions from 7:20 a.m. until 6:15 p.m. The new moon occurs at 6:47 p.m. in Gemini.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Today's new moon is your opportunity to observe your style of speaking to others and relating to them on a daily basis. Do you know how others perceive you? You are quick, decisive and bold in expressing yourself. How do others handle this?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Today's new moon is the best day all year for you to think of how to better handle your money, your possessions and your resources. These are all things you never take for granted. Do you even know exactly what you own?
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Today the only new moon in your sign all year is occurring, which is the perfect time for you to look in the mirror and check out your image. Do you still back comb? Think about how others view the impression you create in the world.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Each new moon is an opportunity to make resolutions. Today's new moon prompts you to think about your inner values. The purpose of life is to be happy, but the million-dollar question is what makes you happy?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
This is the perfect new moon to crystallize and define your goals. Where do you want to be 10 years from now? For that matter, where do you want to be next year? What do you want to be doing? The clearer your wants are, the more likely they will become a reality.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Today's new moon is an opportunity to make resolutions. Because it occurs at the top of your chart, it raises the question: Are you happy with the general direction your life is going? If not, and you want to make changes, what would they be?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
What further education or training might you get to improve your job, your career or your appreciation of life? This is something to consider on today's new moon. Can you take a course? Can you travel? How can you enrich your life?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Most of us earn our money and almost all of us have resources we also depend on: the wealth of others -- partners, family members or even credit cards. (Gulp.) How are you handling the resources of others? How are you handling your debt?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Today the only new moon opposite your sign all year has arrived. Naturally, this is your chance to ask yourself how you can improve your closest friendships and partnerships. What have you got to lose by giving this some thought? Nothing. What might you gain? (Perhaps a better relationship.)
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
What can you do to improve your efficiency at work and at home. (You enjoy working and organizing yourself and others.) Jot down a few things you do that are self-defeating. Then jot down a few things that might help you to be more productive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
It's important to express your creativity and enjoy a life in a carefree way. In other words, life isn't all about work, life is about your personal path to happiness. Partying is primarily pleasure and there's a difference between pleasure and happiness.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Family is gold. Warm relationships with family members are invaluable. What can you do to improve your relationships with family members and also, what can you do to improve where you live? It's important to feel happy where you live.
Singer Joe Cocker (1944) shares your birthday. Because you're so innovative and original, you're not afraid to be different. You follow your instincts, which although quirky, are generally quite noble. You seek amusing pastimes because you don't like to be bored. You adore travel. You are enthusiastic about what you like. In the year ahead, a major decision will rise. Choose wisely.
