Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Steer clear of controversial issues like politics, religion and race today because you might get in trouble, especially if you’re confused about a fact or specific details. You might also go off on a wrong tangent because this is so easy to do today. Be low-key to be safe.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Resist the urge to get involved in financial discussions with others today, especially about inheritances and shared property. For starters, you are coming from a weak position, which means you won’t really stand up for yourself. And that’s just “for starters.”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

It’s difficult talking to partners and close friends today because people are assailed by feelings of doubt and discouragement. Even inadequacy. (“I’m navel lint!”) Because of this hopeless, helpless overtone to everything, postpone important discussions for another day.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Don’t worry if your energy at work is low today. It is what it is. Don’t take criticism from others personally because today many people are discouraged in different ways, which means they say things without thinking — things they don’t really mean.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Romance might be in the toilet today. Oh me, oh my. It so happens that a particular influence is discouraging in every way for everyone, and this means people are disappointed. Some will even feel hopeless. It’s important to know that this is a temporary, passing influence. (Whew!)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Postpone important decisions regarding the family or any changes you want to make at home today because you might have to redo everything later. Things are not as they appear. Furthermore, someone might rain on your parade. Don’t let this influence you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

It’s easy to fall into negative thinking today. But the truth is, the essence of it is confusion. Confusion, fear and doubt. Fortunately, this is a fleeting thing, so you don’t have to give in to these feelings. Remember what your goals are and continue to believe in them.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Postpone important discussions about money, earnings, salaries, jobs and possessions because this is a poor day to be assertive in these areas. You have some second doubts and hesitation. You might even have misinformation. Let this day go by. At least, wait until Saturday or Monday.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might have low energy today. You might also be confronted by situations that you don’t want to face. Avoid excessive physical strain because your body is weaker than you think it is. Don’t be overconfident about anything because your facts might be wrong.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by self-doubt or second thoughts today. (We all feel like this at different times.) When this happens, it’s obviously a poor day to assert yourself or to insist on anything. Just let it ride. Postpone important decisions until Saturday.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might doubt someone today, perhaps a friend or a member of a group. Or maybe, by projection, you think that other people doubt you? Just go with the flow today and don’t demand anything of anyone, including yourself. You could have Vaseline on your lens. Take it easy.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might dread or fear talking to a boss or an authority figure today. And because of this, you might be tempted to take a devious course of action to avoid being on the hot seat or having to explain yourself. Very tempting! Don’t do this. It will only make things worse.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Alexander Skarsgard (1976) shares your birthday today. You have common sense. You are a loyal friend who is reliable. You have an intellectual mind and creative abilities. This year something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end to make room for something new. Although this is a year of service to others, it is also a great year to travel. Get ready for a fresh, new cycle!
