TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This is an excellent day to entertain at home and enjoy pleasant times with family. It's also a great day to redecorate or spruce up your digs. However, if you are buying things for your home, check the moon alert. Enjoy family discussions.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This is a great day for writers or those who use their creative expression for a living. Your ability to turn a phrase and please others with your words is tops. This afternoon is ideal for shmoozing with siblings, neighbours and relatives. Enjoy your world --it's the only one you've got.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Business and commerce are favoured this morning until the time of the moon alert. You might see pleasant ways to make money or invest it. You'll enjoy shopping for beautiful clothes and jewelry, but only in the morning. Check the moon alert! (Keep your receipts.)

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a wonderful day to shmooze with others because the moon is in your sign dancing with fair Venus. If doing business, only rely on the morning. (See moon alert.) However, the entire day is wonderful to socialize and have fun. Take a long lunch and leave work early.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Solitude in beautiful surroundings will please you. If possible, work alone or behind the scenes because you need to take a breather. In fact, if you can play hooky or side-step responsibilities, you'll love it. "Bye. Gotta see a man about a dog."

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a great day to shmooze with female companions or people in groups because everyone is friendly and gracious. In fact, a platonic relationship could become romantic. Someone might encourage you to reach for the stars. You feel good dealing with others.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Travel for pleasure will delight you. Grab any opportunity that comes your way to do this. You'll also love meeting people from different backgrounds and other cultures. This is a good day to explore opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law. (But keep an eye on the moon alert.)

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Gifts, goodies and favours from others will come your way. Romantic relationships will be especially affectionate. This is a great day to just hang out with others and have fun. Avoid important financial decisions during the moon alert time.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Actress Eileen Brennan (1932-2013) shares your birthday. You are not always what you seem. Sometimes you have to play a role in life. One thing is certain: You are multi-talented. You are also a visionary with wonderful social skills. Although you are patient, you love action and tend to gravitate to controversy. Something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish this year to make room for something new.
