Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Don’t be worried if a health issue seems fuzzy today, because this is the very area where there will be confusion. Par for the course. Likewise, those of you at work today will find that your communications with co-workers are also confusing. This is temporary. (One hopes.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is not an ideal day for important romantic discussions because they are susceptible to misunderstandings. Likewise, discussions with your kids or plans for social occasions or anything within the entertainment world might also discourage you. And so it goes.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you might be disappointed with a family member, especially a female. Or perhaps it’s something else at home. Whatever the case, have you been straight and direct in your communications with others? I say this because unexpressed expectations almost always lead to disappointment.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is the classic day for people to misunderstand each other, expect too much from each other or feel let down in some way. It’s also the classic day for self-deception. This is something we all do, but hey — who are we kidding? Just ourselves.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Tread carefully with financial matters today because you might not see everything that is involved. Or you might kid yourself by putting on rose-colored glasses that make things look better than they are. (This is a Leo trait.) Of course, in one way, our world is our perception of it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Relations with close friends and partners are subject to confusion today because the Moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. On top of this, the Moon is opposing fuzzy Neptune. “Holy Smoke and Mirrors!” Go slowly.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For some reason today, you might feel disappointed in someone. Or you might feel sorry for yourself. A curious comment from Pope John: “Italians come to ruin most generally in three ways — women, gambling and farming. My family chose the slowest one.” Life has its ups and downs. “E la vita.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your relationships with friends and members of groups might be plagued with misunderstandings today. Or possibly, you are disappointed in a friend or a group? If this is the case, you have to ask yourself if your expectations are realistic. Sometimes we expect the impossible from others.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is not a good day for important discussions with authority figures, especially female authority figures — including Mom. If you know this right off the bat, you can postpone these discussions for another day. If you can’t postpone them, then be aware that clarity and communications are challenged.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race today because confusion and wishful thinking will just cloud the issue. It’s easy for people to kid themselves today. This is not the day to be the Queen of Denial.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Definitely clarify financial matters and discussions or negotiations about shared property, inheritances and such very clearly today because there is a lot of room for confusion, disappointment and misunderstandings. Assume nothing. Go over everything in detail.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today the Moon is opposite your sign. But to be more specific, it is opposite Neptune in your sign. (Of course, Neptune is your ruler.) This opposition can create misunderstandings! You might feel inferior or judged by others. You might also feel discouraged. This too, shall pass.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Civil rights leader/Nobel Peace Prize winner Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968) shares your birthday today. You are passionate, emotional and romantic. You love to inspire others with your creative ideas. You are an idealist who is extremely focused. The year 2017 is going to be one of the most powerful years of your life, a time of accumulation. Whatever you have done in the past will now ripen. (2017 is also a good year to buy and sell.)
