Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Because the Moon is in a sign that is opposite your sign (Aries and Libra are 180 degrees apart) it means you have to cooperate with others today. This just requires a little compromise and patience. Late in the day, you might lose your cool. Not cool. Chill out.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your concerns today are practical, and they might include home crafts, hygiene, home care and reorganizing your daily world. You might also be involved with pets. Avoid being hypercritical of others, and avoid the martyr game. Who cares?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This can be a playful, fun-loving day! Enjoy sports events, the arts, movies, the theater and fun schmoozing. Late in the day, emotional tension with someone, probably a power struggle, might take place. Don’t give this any energy.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Take some time to retire by yourself to a quiet place because you need peace and quiet today. In fact, you will enjoy cocooning at home. Avoid family conflicts later in the day. Guard against a knee-jerk response. Stay open.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

When talking to others today, you want to avoid superficial chitchat. This is because you’re in the mood for gut-level conversations about something that is real. Hopefully, you can find someone willing to engage with you the way you want.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Cash flow and possessions might be a concern today. You might feel you have to defend your values, even if there is little at stake. Try not to get caught up in this game because who wins? You might feel a strong emotional attachment for something you own today.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you a bit more emotional than usual. You also feel a stronger need to relate to others — friends and loved ones. You might be a bit luckier today than usual as well, which is why you should ask the universe for a favor.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because you’re in the limelight at this time, today you have a strong desire to hide or keep a low profile. This is understandable. You cannot be all things to all people all the time. You have to take some time for yourself to regroup and find your center.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your interactions with a female friend or acquaintance will be significant today. Quite likely, a discussion will prompt you to think of modifying your future goals or changing your direction to one that looks more appealing. You have a lot of options open to you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Make a special effort if you want to guard your privacy today because it’s not that easy to do so. It appears that others, especially bosses, parents and VIPs, are privy to personal information about you. Just be aware of this. (Take your mask off at the office.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your sense of adventure is revved up today; it’s slight but it’s there. Satisfy this, if you can, by doing something different. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Take a different route to or from work. Visit ethnic restaurants and talk to people from other cultures. (“I’m Blonde. James Blonde.”)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a pleasant day to cruise along; however, late in the afternoon, you might have difficulties with someone, especially concerning shared property. Don’t get your belly in a rash. If something goes off the rails, it will just be temporary. Keep the faith, baby.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor/dancer Patrick Swayze (1952-2009) shares your birthday today. You are adaptable. You experience life fully, especially emotionally. You are a natural leader; and your happiness is not robbed by adversity. Go slowly this year. There is 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! Get into nature. (Out where the car is.)
