Until 8:45 p.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” to do business. The Moon is in Aquarius.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Tread carefully when talking to friends (especially female acquaintances) today, as well as members of groups. Unusual, sudden ideas might trigger disputes about shared property, funding and how something will be paid. Don’t leap to conclusions. Make sure you have your facts straight.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
An unexpected encounter with a boss, parent or a VIP might be related to difficulties you have with a friend or partner. Perhaps surprise news triggers an argument with someone? Or perhaps someone close to you is critical of your behavior with your boss or parent? (Can’t please everyone all the time.)
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Steer clear of controversial subjects like politics, religion and race today because they will trigger arguments. Meanwhile, travel delays or unexpected surprises might also create conflict with co=workers. Just remember: Patience is the antidote to anger.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Try to minimize disputes about shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt today because they will only upset you. They might relate to the cost of caring for children or the cost for a social event. Stay on talking terms with others because this rift will heal quickly.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Family disputes might arise today because of unexpected news from afar. Or perhaps surprise travel plans will catch you off guard? Something unexpected will trigger a domestic argument. Take it easy. A lot of people feel feisty and independent today. Stay chill.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Disputes at work are likely today, especially disputes about budgets, equipment or the allocation of something. You might feel unfairly treated. Conversely, someone might be envious of whatever you have. (Go figure.) These negative feelings will disappear by the weekend. No need to worry.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
A surprise invitation somewhere might delight you but it might also strain your pocketbook. (Why is there always so much month left at the end of the money?) Romantic disputes or arguments about children might arise — in part, because things are happening too fast! You need to sort things out.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You might feel quarrelsome today. Quite likely, a female family member will do or say something that upsets you. (Admittedly, you were feeling a tad irritable, anyhow.) Possibly this other person wants to explore something or make a sudden change and this doesn’t sit well with you. Easy does it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Even though something unexpected occurs today or a romantic partner is more aggressive — hold the phone. Do not overreact, which will be your impulse. Be a cool cucumber and wait till all the cards are dealt before you state your position.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Financial disputes might occur because of a sudden windfall, a sudden expense or a sudden purchase. Something unexpected will trigger a discussion — almost surely. If it’s not about money, it’s about something you own. Stay mellow.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Today there’s good news and there’s bad news while the Moon is in your sign. The bad news is that you might quarrel with a parent or a boss. Perhaps you feel competitive about something? But the good news is that you feel independent and energetic, and as a result, you will make a new friend.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Something hidden or behind the scenes might impact your earnings in a favorable way today. In turn, this might also cause you to change your plans about higher education or travel. Try to leave your options open because it is wise to have some choice available to you. Happiness is having alternatives.
If Your Birthday Is Today

Your persistence and innovativeness will guarantee you success, but your true ace in the hole is your optimism. A new nine-year cycle is the beginning for you. This opens up many possibilities.
