AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
From what I have learned so far you don't HAVE to wear a cloak/robe. You can wear normal clothes:
"...just wear clean clothing of natural fibers such as cotton, wool, and silk. So long as you are comfortable with what you are (or aren't) wearing, you're doing fine." Scott Cunningham, Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner

I prefer to wear black or white while casting or doing any magical work .I also have special outfit that I wear only when casting .
Staring at moon will depend of the type of spell you are performing .There is such thing as Moon Magic .I like saluting the Moon sadly we see it very rarely here .
If I could afford I will purchase robe ,because it will work even better for me .Wearing it or special outfit helps you to prepare better for magical work .
When doing banishment or binding spells I've always found that wearing black helps me to focus and increase my energy levels. Using Black Sea salt when casting my circle for this kind of work is also beneficial.
Something is to be noted about clothing when casting. Clothing can act as a barrier or wall between you and external forces. The lack of clothing as well as the presence of clothing makes a difference in some cases. I'm air, there are many things that I must do naked when learning them for the first time. I need to be in as much contact with my element as possible... and as being wind, it does have its quirks. I enjoy wearing shorts and tank tops because it makes connecting the the natural flow easier. On the contrary, being naked also makes you vulnerable. If there was a possibility that you could become harmed due to your cast then being clothed gives you an additional protection. Clothing in general is symbolic. If you associate a particular piece of material to have significant value/meaning to you, then it influences the art. jewelry or charms are also included here. There have been many occasions where I had to separate myself from my trinkets. If you wanted to wear a cloak because it helps with the ambiance of the ritual that is personal preference, but far from required. You'll find that as you grow more and more with the art that there is more of a feeling associated. . .
