MOON ALERT After 7:30 a.m. we have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Sagittarius.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
This is an excellent day to tie up loose ends about banking details, taxes, debt, credit, insurance matters, inheritances and anything to do with shared property or what you own jointly with others. You actually have the concentration and patience to do this stuff. (Bravo.)
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
It's easy to be critical of others. Listen to what you say when talking to people, especially partners and close friends. In turn, you might attract people who are critical of you. (Horrors!) Everyone hates to be criticized. (Forget that ballyhoo about "constructive criticism.")
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Use the day's astrological influences to get routine work out of the way. Your critical faculties are sharp and you have perseverance as well as concentration. Roll up your sleeves and dig in. Caution about being critical of co-workers. That will go over like a lead balloon.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Serious discussions about children -- their care, education and welfare -- will be productive today. However, if you are talking to your kids, it's easy to be too critical. Remember Goethe's advice: "Correction does much, but encouragement does more."
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
This is a good day to tackle repairs at home and, similarly, it's a good day to have serious discussions with family to "repair" rifts in relationships. (Musical families have riffs.) Someone older or more experienced might throw their advice around. Perhaps this is helpful?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Because you have amazing powers of concentration, tackle routine work you might usually avoid because you will be amazed at how much you can get done. Guard against negative thinking. If your glass is half-empty go to the sink and fill it up.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Financial matters might look bleak. Why is there is always so much month left at the end of the money? Join the club -- we've got jackets. Nevertheless, your mind has staying power and is willing to wade through forms and figures. This is a good day to tackle things you've been putting off.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Do not fall prey to negative thinking. (The paralysis of the negative.) Too often we equate criticism with intelligence: literary critics, art critics, architectural critics, music critics. Hope is important. (Hope is the feeling you have that the feeling you have isn't permanent.)
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Your ability to research anything is excellent. Grab that green banker's shade and get down to it. You won't overlook details and you'll have excellent staying power to finish what you begin. You might also come up with meaningful answers.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Listen to the advice of someone older and more experienced because you don't have to reinvent the wheel. Why not stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before you? Negative thinking might paralyze a group to which you belong. Remember The Little Engine that Could: "I think I can. I think I can."
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Bosses, teachers, parents and VIPs might be critical of you. Don't take this personally and don't respond in kind. Everyone tends to be discouraged and convinced we will never put a man on the moon. (Oops. I forgot. They did that, didn't they?)
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Use the day's energy to study something thoroughly because you can make great strides doing this, or proofread something because you won't overlook details. People are in a picky, petty, tiny frame of mind. (Mouse mind not eagle mind.)
