Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 9 a.m.  until 9 p.m. After that, the Moon moves from Libra into Scorpio.

If Your Birthday Is May 2

Sports celebrity David Beckham (1975) shares your birthday. You are observant. You have a keen insight into the behavior of others. You are also hard-working and productive. You take charge and stick to your plans. Settle your debts this year so that you can prepare for financial accumulation in the next three years. To clear away indebtedness is the thrust of this year. Consolidate your affairs for future growth.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Just take it easy and don’t attempt to do too much. It’s a loosey-goosey day because the Moon is opposite your sign and it is also a Moon Alert. The best way to enjoy today is to be light-hearted, easy-going and friendly.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Those of you who work today can expect delays, shortages and goofy mistakes. You might also experience some misunderstandings about your own health. (“I’m dying!” “No you’re not, it’s just a hangover.”) Go easy on yourself and others.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a lovely, playful, creative day! Enjoy schmoozing. Meet friends for brunch or a long lunch. Activities with children, as well as social diversions, will please you. Spend money only on gas and food. Just enjoy your day. Lucky you!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is the perfect day to cocoon at home and veg out. Discussions with a female family member might be significant. However, do not volunteer for anything or agree to anything important. Just putter around home and take it easy. Only do whatever gives you a warm feeling in your tummy.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a creative day for writers, especially writers of fiction, because it’s easy to expand your thinking in an imaginative way. Short trips will please you as well as discussions with a wide variety of people. Spend money only on gas and food. Enjoy conversing with others.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Because today is a Moon Alert for most of the day, be careful about spending money. Buy only gas and food. If your mind is focused on financial matters, then do your homework but do not agree to anything important until the Moon Alert is over.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Moon is in your sign, but it is a Moon Alert. That makes this the perfect day to hang out with others and enjoy schmoozing. Keep a light-hearted approach to everything. Do not shop for anything other than food and gas. Don’t volunteer for anything.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might want to cocoon or hide because you don’t feel like engaging with the busyness of the world around you. Relations with partners and close friends have been draining lately. Just do something that makes you feel good today — but don’t spend money except for food and gas.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A discussion with a female friend will be important. Just keep things light. You don’t have to rewrite history or change the world. (Although it’s true that it’s easier to change the past than the future.) Postpone important decisions until tonight or tomorrow.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Once again, you are high viz. in the eyes of others, especially parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police. Knowing this, why make a boo-boo? Just go along for the ride and avoid important decisions. Don’t agree to anything; don’t volunteer for anything.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It will please you to do something different because you want adventure and a chance to expand your horizons. Well, this is a good day to do this, especially by talking to people from different backgrounds and other countries.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might be concerned with finances, shared property, inheritances, tax issues and anything you own jointly with others. While all of these subjects are important, today is a loosey-goosey day for most of the day, so wait until the Moon Alert is over to do anything important.
