Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’ve been wanting to make changes at home, perhaps renovations. Today your desire to do this will come to a head. You no longer want to be opposed or held back. You’re just gonna do it. Bruce’s grandmother said, “Wantin’ ain’t gettin’.” Today she is wrong.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Be careful walking, jogging and driving because this can be an accident-prone day for you. Similarly, think before you speak, in case you regret blurting out something. (Wince.) You need a lot of freedom of action today, which is why you should just take it.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Keep an eye on your money and possessions today because something unpredictable might separate you from them. On the other hand (you have different rings), you might find money or a little goodie because your assets and cash flow are up for grabs.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are restless and impulsive today. This is why it’s important for you to have freedom of action and especially to be free of restraints. What you want is exciting, ongoing creative change around you. “Let’s live a little!” Enjoy your little revolt. (Pack a hot lunch.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Beneath the surface of things today, you’re bursting at the seams. (Time to let out another pleat in the shower curtain?) No, you’re not gaining weight. You’re just restless, perhaps because you’re putting up with a situation you don’t like. Is this wise? Life is too short for boxed wine.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Relations with others, especially in groups or classes, will be interesting today. A little coup might break out, and you might be leading it! Either you will take a stand on an issue with someone that surprises everyone, or someone else will do something unusual that surprises you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is the classic day for a rebellion. (Have two, if they’re small.) Tread carefully around bosses, parents and authority figures because you might blow or they might. This is not the day to wake the sleeping giant, although you’re tempted to do so. You don’t want anyone telling you what to do.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Someone on a soapbox literally or virtually, especially someone exposing political or religious ideas, might catch you off guard today. Something sudden and unexpected will grab your attention. Travel cancellation and delays are also likely. Oh well.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Make friends with your bank account so that you know what’s happening today, especially regarding debt, bills and creditors. (Is the posse after you?) Disputes about who owns what or who owes who are also likely. Hold your ground but know your rights.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Disputes and arguments with others might occur today because something is just the last straw. Or perhaps someone will try to infringe on your freedom. You are patient and reasonable, but even you have your limits. And don’t we all? You’re willing to offer a hand, but a kidney?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your work routine will be interrupted today. This could be because of a minor rebellion, or it could be because of broken equipment, computer crashes and power outages. Be patient with others because people are sensitive today, especially to authority and direction.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Pay attention because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Remove them from hazardous situations. Be vigilant. Likewise, party plans, vacations and romantic rendezvous might be cancelled or end up at cross purposes. (“Formal dress? I thought this was a wiener roast?”)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Illeana Douglas (1965) shares your birthday today. You have high ideals and you are noble and honorable. A classic Leo. You have a wonderful imagination and an appreciation (and often a talent) for the arts. This is a testing year of growth and building. This growth will occur beneath the surface. Do not make major changes yet — wait until next year. Strengthen your financial position by reducing your overhead.
