Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you want to make an excellent impression on bosses, parents and VIPs, which is why you will put duty and responsibilities first. You feel you have an obligations to others. That’s why this is a serious day. “Just the facts, ma’am.”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you will adhere to traditional ideas about politics, religion and racial issues. You will not raise an issue because you want to be politically correct. You will follow the letter of the law. (In fact, some might have to deal with legal matters or even a courthouse.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You might have trouble getting money from others today. This is the classic day to discuss your financial obligations to others. You want to be responsible for your debts and your obligations.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Conversations with partners and close friends are serious today. They might focus on the responsibilities of the relationship itself. What do you expect from someone else to fulfil the bargain of the relationship? And what do they expect from you to fulfil the bargain of the relationship? There is always an unspoken bargain.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will work hard today either at your job because you feel that duty and obligation come first today. Someone older or more experienced might have a say in what you are doing. You have always taken pride in being able to pull your share of the weight – if not more.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Children might be an increased responsibility today. Or you might have to teach them something that is important and serious. Likewise, discussions between romantic partners will be serious. They might touch on commitment or how to divide expenses or how to share labour.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

A discussion with an older family member will be important today. Your focus is on responsibilities connected with your family and your private life; especially, your responsibilities for a parent. You might also focus on what you want to do to make your home a safe refuge for the future.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Avoid worry mode today. Worry is a habit; and we are habitual creatures. The fact is most of the things that we worry about never happen. (I say this as a hypocrite because I do worry.) But I also know that it is the quality of the present moment that really matters, and generally whatever we worry about has nothing to do with the present.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If shopping today, you will only spend money on practical, long-lasting items. That’s because you feel frugal. You might want to set an example for others and show them sensibly you handle your funds (whether this is the truth or not).

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today you want to do the right thing, especially in terms of how you are viewed by others. You want to appear correct, sane and reasonable. You want to appear hard-working and responsible. “Hey, I wear deodorant and floss!”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an excellent day to do research because you are serious, focused and will not overlook details. And you have endurance and motivation! Believe that you can accomplish a lot today and you will. “My name is Bill and I will.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

An older or more experienced friend might influence you today. They might give you advice or teach you something. They might even influence your goals for the future because this month you’re wondering how to make your hopes and dreams for the future a reality.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Jane Fonda (1937) shares your birthday today. You are warm and courteous; yet, straightforward and direct. You are kind, compassionate and persevering. This is a year of teaching and learning. You will spend time in reflection. Because your spiritual or religious beliefs will have strong priority, you might explore meditation, yoga or other disciplines. What you learn this year will be crucial for your progress and success next year.
