MOON ALERT Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 7:15 a.m. until 10:50 p.m. After that the moon moves from Leo into Virgo.


ARIES (March 21-April 19)

Aries people are good with their hands. They will try anything once. Indeed, it's the perfect day to explore arts and crafts and try something new that gives you a chance to express your creative talents. You feel playful, prankish and flirtatious.


TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

Because it's easy to think outside of the box you might have original, unusual ideas about how to tweak your digs or improve the look of where you live. Conversations with family members will be easy-going and perhaps frank. (Enjoy sex, coffee and conversation.)


GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

Your mind is busy, but it's also all over the map, which is why you feel indecisive or paralyzed about knowing what to do. That's because of the moon alert and everything is a bit fuzzy and vague. But it's a good day for creative thinking. It's a great day for writers, for example.


CANCER (June 21-July 22)

With the exception of buying food for your personal use or for your family, this is a poor day to shop for anything because you will likely get things you don't use, or you lose, or they break. Postpone important financial decisions until tomorrow.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

The moon is in your sign, however, it is a moon alert day. This means you feel a bit like a helium balloon floating adrift in the sky. Nevertheless, your creative thinking will be fresh and original. Enjoy shmoozing with others. Take it easy.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You're pumped with energy now because fiery Mars is in your sign. This means you're ready for action. You're also busy taking short trips and running errands. However, be aware the moon alert is in effect, so postpone shopping until tomorrow.


LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a great day to shmooze with others, especially in group situations. You might explore new ideas, especially about non-profit organizations or charitable activities that benefit others. Whatever the case, don't act on anything until tomorrow. Just talk.


SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It's easy to make errors or suffer from shortages, however, in your case, these little glitches might unfortunately be public. (Gulp.) In fact, bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs might notice you. Incidentally, this includes the police. Forewarned is forearmed.


SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You long to do something different because you would rather be somewhere else. (Escapist tendencies are strong.) If you can pull this off, great, but keep in mind this is a day to avoid important decisions and major expenditures. Just go with the flow.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although you're focused on shared resources, inheritances, taxes, debt and the wealth of others, this is a poor day to make important decisions regarding these matters. Just fill your databank and contemplate your choices. Wait until tomorrow to act.


AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with others because compromise and co-operation are your best options. Not only is the moon opposing your sign, but it is a moon alert day as well. A double whammy! But it's a creative day and good for socializing.


PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Because you're in touch with your muse, your imagination will be working overboard in a creative way. This is a great day for those who work in the arts or need to develop creative ideas because you're full of original, new ways of thinking. Enjoy flirtations, parties and fun.



Microsoft billionaire/humanitarian Bill Gates (1955) shares your birthday. You have a natural curiosity about life coupled with the fact you always do your homework because you want to be prepared. When you're involved with something, you give it 100 per cent of your attention, which means you tend to blur the line between your personal and professional life. Good news. This year might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
