Moon Alert

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

If Your Birthday Is May 1

Actor Jamie Dornan (1982) shares your birthday. You are a realist with a sardonic sense of humor. You like to communicate your observations to others. You love the good life. This is the year holds much promise for you! A major change will take place, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2006. Take advantage of opportunities. It’s time to test the waters and discover new territory.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It might be difficult talking to others because it’s easy to lose your cool. Power struggles will erupt. Pow! Furthermore, discussions with others will not unfold as you expect them to. Instead, someone might change their mind or challenge you or create a problem. Aagghh!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Avoid excitable subjects, especially with co-workers. (And most especially with a female co-worker.) Arguments with co-workers are likely. In addition, your work routine might be interrupted because of equipment breakdowns or glitches with computers and electronics.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Power struggles with kids and romantic partners might take place. This could be due to a misunderstanding about responsibilities and boundaries. It might also be a misunderstanding about shared property. Use your clever way with words to be diplomatic.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be patient with family members to avoid outbursts and arguments. Tension might arise because small appliances might break down and minor breakages could occur. This could be the reason a family member keeps on about something. Plus people are feisty today!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign, so be careful. It doesn’t have to be accident-prone, but you will be distracted because of arguments with others or some kind of emotional investment about something. Travel plans will likely change as well.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep an eye on your money and cash flow. You might find money; you might lose money. This same random quality could apply to your possessions and assets. Stay in touch with what you own and make friends with your bank account. Keep abreast of things and protect your stuff.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign at odds with big daddy Pluto and opposing wild, wacky Uranus. (You can probably connect the dots.) You might be obsessed with something that is unusual. You might also be irritable and impatient. And you will want your way. (Oh dear.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because something at work might break down or go sideways, this will create a disruption for you and others. In turn, this disruption could create further havoc that leads to arguments and power struggles. Not how you planned to end your week, was it?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Difficulties with a female companion might bubble to the surface. This could be a power struggle about an idea that either you won’t let go of or the other person won’t — most likely both of you. It’s hard to reach agreement. Try to agree to disagree.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you lose your cool, you should be aware of the fact that this could be rather public. People in authority might notice you, and this is not the kind of thing you like to be noticed for, is it? Keep this in mind if you feel at loggerheads with someone. Don’t look silly.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid controversial subjects like religion and politics because this will only get you in trouble. People are obsessed with ideas, and furthermore, they want to win their argument. Naturally, this doesn’t apply to you. You can put on your shades and watch.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Power struggles about shared property, taxes, debt and who is responsible for what might erupt today. People seem to be firm in their point of view — and by that, I mean inflexible. Just remember: The rigid trees are the first to be snapped in a storm. Be open to compromise and appreciating a different point of view.
