Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Tread carefully today because the Moon is lined up with your ruler, fiery Mars, which means it’s easy to lose your cool, especially later in the day and this evening. Knowing this ahead of time, you can keep your cool because that would be the cool thing to do. N’est ce pas?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Be patient with co-workers today to avoid disagreements. That’s because the Moon is lined up with fiery Mars today, and this makes people volatile and emotionally aggressive! Oh great, sounds like fun. But you can sidestep this neatly because you are a tactful Taurus.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Parents must be patient with kids today because this is a potentially argumentative day, although it doesn’t have to be. This same influence will apply to romantic liaisons. The key to keeping the peace is to be tolerant, easygoing and forgiving. A bad memory also helps.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Do what you can to avoid domestic disputes today because tension, especially later in the evening, could arise. Naturally, you are in control of the situation. It all depends on how you choose to respond to others, doesn’t it? If you rise above these petty irritations, you will, at least, be above these petty irritations.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’re full of vim and vigor today! In fact, you will be verbally aggressive with others, whether you realize this or not. Therefore, take this warning to heart, and soften your words, especially with siblings, relatives and daily contacts. Make sure your voice does not ear-ritate someone.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Squabbles about money, possessions, earnings and cash flow might arise today, especially late in the day. However, these don’t have to occur if you’re patient with others and you think before you speak. (Even if your ghast is totally flabbered.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Look at you, you’re not a day over adorable! Just because fiery Mars is lined up with the Moon in your sign, this doesn’t mean relations with others can’t be civil and even charming, eh wot? Use today’s feisty energy to be courageous instead of combative.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be doing a slow boil about something and feel that you can’t speak out. Being muzzled is not such a bad idea because when the Moon is in Libra, people want to get along. Nevertheless, other influences will be challenging! Stay chill.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Avoid squabbles with a female companion today, especially in a group situation, because you will only regret it later. People are inclined to be obsessed and fixated about things, which is not mature. Fortunately, it is a brief impulse. (Whew.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be careful talking to parents, bosses and VIPs today because you might blow your cool or say something that you later regret. This would not be wise. You have to remember which side your bread is buttered on, unless you’re pure Teflon and who is?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race today because by the end of the day, they will degenerate into arguments and emotional drivel that no one wants to hear, including you. Pull in your reins — just for today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Disputes about shared property might arise today, especially this evening. Do remember that with the Sun at the top of your chart, other people notice you. They see you laughing; they see you dancing; they see you fighting. They see you!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Comedian Margaret Cho (1968) shares your birthday today. You are daring and risk-taking because you like to live this way. It’s who you are. You appear lively, dynamic and above all, confident. Something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new this year. It will also be a year of service to others. This is a good year to travel.
