MOON ALERT We have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Leo.


James Earl Jones



ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You won't conceal your feelings about others, especially if you have a crush on someone. In fact, you might even be possessive about a lover. At least, your nurturing instincts are aroused for everything and everyone around you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

You'll enjoy privacy, especially in pleasant surroundings with good food at hand. (You love your creature comforts.) Try to have a relaxing time at home or someplace where you can withdraw from the busyness around you so you can collect your thoughts, perhaps with a sip of Shiraz and a piece of Havarti.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

In conversation with others you don't want to skim along the surface of things talking about the weather. You want to get right down to the nitty-gritty and have a gut level of communication with others. You want to know the skinny.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

Without knowing why, you might feel attached to something you own. You might find yourself defending your territory or your possessions even if there's no need for it. "My precious!" It will please you to be surrounded by familiar things.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

The moon is in your sign, which makes you ultra-sensitive to everyone and everything. It's like your antennas are picking up more data. This could make you emotionally responsive to others, or ironically, more absorbed with your own feelings.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Whatever you do you will feel most comfortable working behind the scenes or working alone. You want to be in the shadows. You don't want to be caught up in a busy hub of activity (horrors). You need a mental-health day to take a break.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your emotional contact with others, especially friends or members of groups, will be important to you. You might feel protective or want to mother someone. These feelings might even make you jealous if this someone pays more attention to someone else. "What am I, chopped liver?"

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

In a rather dramatic way, personal details about your private life might be public. This might not go over well with you because, by nature, you're a private person. (Although, you are playful.) Just be aware this could happen.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Because you want something unusual or stimulating to happen, go someplace you've never been before. Do something different. Vary your routine. If you can't travel, be a tourist in your own city, especially exploring ethnic restaurants and unusual places.


CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It will please you to tie up loose details regarding insurance matters, inheritances, taxes, debt, bills and certainly anything regarding shared property. You will feel like a weight is lifted from you if you clear some of this away. Plus, you'll be more in control of your life.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to be open to compromise. Your closest, personal relationships will matter more than usual. Nevertheless, guard against knee-jerk reactions to others. Think before you speak.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

"It's a joy to labour for those you love." Years ago, in Iowa, I saw that painted on a large serving plate. And it's true. You can either be critical of others, or turn that same energy into helping someone. The latter will feel much better, which makes it a win/win choice.


Actor James Earl Jones (1931) shares your birthday. You are a powerful individual and expressive. Your energy is so large others feel it. Your presence is commanding and full of authority. You are forceful either physically, intellectually or both. You understand human nature and how discipline is necessary for achievement. Look for opportunities to study or learn something important in the coming year because it will matter.
