Actress Kristin Lehman (1972) shares your birthday. You are a charming realist who is clever and entertaining. You are also a good teacher. When it comes to family, you have a strong voice. Be careful and observant this year because you have something important to learn. The first half of this year will seem slow; but soon, your efforts of the past six years will start to show results.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Quarrels and disagreements about money, finances, earnings, cash flow or possessions might take place. However, much of this will simply be due to the Full Moon energy. If you wait 48 hours, most of this will dissipate.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place. This means it’s easy for you to be at odds with others, especially partners and close friends. Don’t take the bait. In 48 hours all this tension will be over. Just be cool. Send out for dark chocolate.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today’s Full Moon could create health issues in a minor way for you. Perhaps a major way for a few of you. It could also put you at odds with co-workers. The thing to remember is that this is a very brief challenge and you can outlast it by waiting 48 hours.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The Full Moon today is a tough one for your sign. It makes you feel torn between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your career and your public reputation. Honestly, you can’t please everyone. In this case, you cannot ignore your career.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Travel plans will be challenged because of today’s Full Moon energy. Likewise, discussions about politics, religion and racial issues might also be emotionally charged. If possible, avoid these issues during this Full Moon time, which lasts about 48 hours.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Finances are on your mind, especially matters related to inheritances, insurance issues, shared property and the wealth of others. In fact, these are the very areas where tension will arise because of today’s Full Moon. Wait 48 hours until this tension has passed.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

The Full Moon today could create pressures on your health and certainly on your relationship with co-workers. It might even create some angst in your relationship with pets. Just be reassured that in 48 hours, all this conflict will practically disappear.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might experience difficulties with romantic relationships, friendships and even your relationships with your kids because of the energy of today’s Full Moon. This is a strong Full Moon because it occurs in Scorpio, which is a fixed sign. Be diplomatic and patient.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a tough Full Moon for Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius — the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse — kidding — the four fixed signs. Despite the distractions of your job or your career, you cannot ignore the demands of home and family right now. That’s how it is.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is an accident-prone day for you because of the energy of the Full Moon. Naturally, the Full Moon will not cause it but the Full Moon could distract you emotionally and then you could make a mistake. Be mindful driving, walking and jogging, as well as speaking to anyone.
