Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s important to know that you are highly visible today whether you intend to be or not. In fact, people might learn private details about your personal life. Quite likely, you won’t mind because you feel relaxed and easygoing with everyone. (Do not expect too much from co-workers.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, give yourself a chance to see and enjoy beautiful places: museums, art galleries, pristine parks and university campuses. Romantic love might disillusion you today but only if you expect what is unrealistic.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a lovely day to entertain at home because relationships with family members will be warm and friendly. However, stay realistic because that’s the best way to be. Don’t expect others to deliver more than they can (keeping in mind that even your in-laws are just frail mortals).

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Because you want to get along with others today, especially siblings, neighbors and relatives, you are willing to cut someone some slack. Naturally, if anyone takes advantage of you or disappoints you, it will hurt. The key is to have realistic expectations of others.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be careful with financial matters today because you might spend too much money in an extravagant way. Your desire to please others is a wonderful thing, but don’t go into debt! If shopping, be careful about large gestures that will empty your wallet. (You know who you are.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It’s a cruel truth that unexpressed expectations lead to disappointment. After all, others cannot read our minds. Nevertheless, we hope that loved ones and close friends will do so! This is why we are let down and disappointed when life is left up to guesswork and unspoken expectations.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Something hidden or behind the scenes might cast a shadow on events today. Perhaps you’re waiting for someone to come forth with something but nothing happens? Perhaps you want someone to show their true love? Or at least, pick you up on time.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Don’t expect too much from friends and members of groups today. If you can do this, this is a good day to schmooze with others. Nevertheless, because feelings of idealism are high, this can lead to disappointment because nobody’s perfect.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might think you are the favored one with a boss, parent or someone special. Today, this hope might be dashed or shaken up. The key is not to expect the impossible from others, especially someone in authority who is busy with others as well.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Avoid controversial subjects today because you might be disillusioned if someone close to you disagrees with your values. Instead, enjoy the beauty of gorgeous architectural buildings, parks and galleries because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today. These things will delight you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Others are generous to you now, which is a good thing. However, today there is some kind of confusion regarding your expectations. You might expect more than someone is prepared to deliver? Naturally, this will lead to disappointment. Make sure everyone is on the same page.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Don’t fall into martyr trap and make sacrifices for others because you think it’s a noble thing to do. And don’t let anyone do this for you today, either. This kind of manipulation is a guilt trip. Instead, be honest and genuine and hope for the best. (Forgive your enemies but never forget their names.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

The Far Side cartoonist Gary Larson (1950) shares your birthday today. You are friendly, enthusiast and warm of heart. You are charismatic because of your charm, your generous sprit and your fast, insightful mind. This year you will be a student and a teacher. You will be excited as you start to see the fruits of your efforts for the past six years. Expect your well-earned rewards soon!
