Avoid shopping or major decisions from 4:45 p.m. until 1o:15 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Today your hands are tied. Do not make assumptions without checking that they are true. Maybe you feel the weight of the world is too heavy and no one will help you, But have you asked? Things are not as bad as they appear.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Your relations with someone older or more experienced might discourage you today. You might feel they’re judgmental. But perhaps they aren’t? Possibly, you feel they are judging you, but it is really you who are holding yourself back. (I hate it when that happens.)
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a poor day to ask bosses or parents for a favor or for approval because quite likely, their answer will be, “Talk to the hand.” Knowing this ahead of time, you can avoid this. Even tomorrow is a much better day.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Teachers and legal authorities are easy to deal with today. Likewise, you might find the teachings of the church or the government to be restrictive, which is discouraging. Don’t let this get you down. If life gives you lemons, make a whiskey sour.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Postpone discussions about inheritances, wills and shared property for another day because today will be difficult for this. Obstacles will arise. People will not agree with you. It’s just an uphill battle. Remember, timing is everything. (And today is not the time.)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Take it easy and be gentle with close friends and partners today because it’s a prickly day. You might resent it if you feel you have more duties and responsibilities than someone else. You might feel someone is blocking your way. But have you looked for a detour?
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today you might feel weighed down by your responsibilities at work. You’re singing the Song of the Volga Boatmen. “Pull once more, my lads.” Be comforted by the fact that many others feel the same way today because this is the kind of day when life is just hard. Fortunately, there is Happy Hour!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Romance is in the toilet today. You might feel unappreciated or misunderstood. You might also feel stuck in a social situation with people you don’t want to be with. (What fun!) Plus, children might be an increased responsibility. (Well, that goes with the territory.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Family discussions will be difficult today because an authority figure in the family (perhaps a parent) might lay down the law. People are uncooperative. They resist your ideas. Perhaps you are left with all the mess, the dishes, the garbage and recycling. No fair!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It’s easy to fall into worry mode today. The truth is the next few hours will happen no matter what you do. They can be worrisome hours or happy hours; the choice is yours. No matter what happens, your reaction is within your own control. (Of course, easier said than done.)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might feel a financial squeeze today. Perhaps you don’t have enough money to buy something or do something. Perhaps you feel the squeeze play at work, especially with a disagreeable, demanding boss? Note: Tomorrow is a waaay better day!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Today you feel pulled between doing what you want to do and doing what others expect you to do. Yes, duty vs. self gratification. Somewhere in the middle there must be a compromise, no? Remember that negativity is wanting things to be different than the way they are. What happens if you accept the way they are?
If Your Birthday Is Today
Actor Rob Lowe (1964) shares your birthday today. You are a strong individualist who investigates things because you plan for the future. You are a perfectionist with strong opinions. This year you will make an important decision. (It’s your year of choice.) In the first half of the year, reduce your overhead expenses so that you are financially strong later in the year. Happiness is having alternatives.
