Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to do business until 8 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Definitely avoid arguments with others today, especially partners and close friends, because they will be ugly. No matter how angry you are, do not do anything devious or harmful to someone else because it will likely backfire in your own face. Trust me.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Power struggles with others at work today are likely. Knowing this ahead of time, you can step back and give everyone some breathing space. Don’t be pushy and don’t be demanding. If you want to introduce improvements or make changes, wait for another day. Definitely.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Parents must be patient with kids today to avoid hissy fits and meltdowns. Likewise, romantic partners might also have hissy fits and meltdowns because love can be so childish, can’t it? Try to relax and be easygoing with others. Don’t be demanding.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It’s possible that you can use the energy today to make creative changes in your immediate environment. However, what is more likely is that domestic arguments will interrupt because increased activity and chaos at home are just too much to handle. Be cool (for your own peace of mind).

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

It’s easy for you to come on aggressively now in all your communications with others, which is why you have to be careful today. Your energy level is high and you want to get something done. But if you come on too strong, you will arouse opposition to you. Forewarned is forearmed.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Financial squabbles and disputes are likely today. They could pertain to cash flow, earnings and money or something that you actually own. This is a poor day to fight about anything because things will degenerate quickly into something nasty. Postpone these discussions for another day.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might have an emotional reaction dealing with others because you are upset today. Perhaps you feel attacked by someone or misunderstood? Whatever the case, avoid dangerous places and violent people today because it’s not worth the risk. Yes, it’s that kind of day.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Someone might be secretly working against your best interests. If you suspect this, you are probably right. However, this is not the day to confront anyone because nasty arguments will suddenly flare up. Just be careful and be aware at all times. Avoid danger.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A fierce competition with someone in a group might turn nasty today. However, this energy can be used to achieve something. Ultimately, Mars is just energy, but when Mars is at odds with Pluto, dark, angry energy can be created. Caution.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is not a good day to go up against bosses, parents and authority figures. Do not challenge anyone! You will only make matters worse because you will increase their opposition to you. Yes, you are ambitious to achieve something, but at what cost? Be reasonable.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Do not engage in controversial topics like religion, politics and race today because they will quickly turn ugly. Just sidestep these issues. If someone is being unreasonable, you cannot reason them out of this position — by sheer definition.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Disputes about shared property, inheritances, insurance and anything to do with your partner’s assets will be nasty today. Although you might see a better way to do something, wait until an easier day to bring this up for discussion. Above all, don’t be pushy and obsessed with getting your way.
