ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Just go with the flow because the moon is in your sign for most of the day but it's a moon alert as well. Enjoy shmoozing with others. Keep things light. Avoid important purchases and decisions until you have the green light.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

This day get stronger for you as it wears on and you will shine once the moon alert is over. No wonder -- the moon moves into Taurus! That's when your luck will improve. Until then, wear water wings and stay away from the deep end.


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

This is a great day to shmooze with others, especially in group situations. You'll also enjoy hanging out with good friends. However, refrain from major purchases or important decisions until the moon alert is over.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Be aware that personal details about your private life might be public, just in case you want to do some damage control. This is a social day. Enjoy talking to parents, teachers, bosses and VIPs. But avoid important decisions, commitments or volunteering for anything until after the moon alert is over.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Any kind of exercise will delight you now because you have energy to burn! In fact, it's a smart idea because if this energy builds up within you, it could leak out in cranky little ways. (Oops.) Do something different today. Shake it up a little. Check the moon alert above.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

As today wears on, you will want to get involved in decisions about shared property, inheritances and anything you share with someone else. If this is the case, wait until the moon alert is over (see above) before you commit or agree to something. Be smart.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a good day to compromise with others and go with the flow. Be tolerant and easy-going. Don't make a big deal about things, which is not your nature anyhow. Well, you do care about your beautiful things. ("Go! And never darken my towels again!")


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Just attend to business as usual and avoid important decisions and purchases. However, when the moon alert is over, your attention will start to focus more on partnerships and close friendships. Be prepared to accommodate others. (Make things easy for yourself.)


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a playful, creative day, and those of you involved in creative activities can be productive. This is also a fun day for sports and playful activities with children. By evening, however, you're more inclined to work at practical things. Go figure.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You'll enjoy cocooning at home or taking it easy. This is a poor day to shop or make important decisions -- check with the moon alert. However, when it's over, the world is yours. This evening you want to play and have fun! Great date night.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today might be plagued with inefficiency, silly errors and shortages. Don't push the river. If you feel overwhelmed with goofy detours, don't try to do too much. Definitely avoid shopping and important decisions.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Although your mind is on money, cash flow and finances, this is a poor day to shop or make important purchases. But not for the entire day -- check the moon alert above. Once it's over you are free to throw your money around.



Actor Bill Murray (1950) shares your birthday. You have an appreciation for subtle details: appearances, beauty and even diplomacy in speech. Because you like to be abreast of the times, you are aware of fashion trends and new ideas. You are also fascinated by mystery and secrets. This year something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new.
