Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Tread carefully today because the Moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. Yes, you are feisty and ready to bark. Part of you (under the left armpit) is looking for a fight. Cool your jets. (Puleeze?)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You feel restless today. Don’t get suckered into an argument about politics or religion because this will only upset you and you will accomplish nothing. Play it cool in the Key of Let’s C. Avoid people who want to coerce you to agree with them.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Somehow you will attract unusual people to you today. Perhaps a friend wants to argue about shared property or how to spend shared funds. This might be a naked power play. Don’t fall for it. You are smart — use your brains.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be careful talking to parents and bosses today because power struggles might take place. You have to ask yourself if all this is really worth it. You will likely lose ground and, hey, why look bad in their eyes? It’s all about ego.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race today because people are waiting to get into an argument, where they can prove that they are right and you’re wrong. Lighten up and move on. And never play pool with anyone named Fats.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might have a dispute with someone today about shared property, inheritances, insurance or how to divide something. If you don’t like what is said, you’re going to stand your ground. He who flings dirt only loses ground.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Difficulties with partners, close friends and family members are classic today. People are obsessed and they might feel jealous about something. They might also guilt trip someone. Yes, it’s that kind of day. But hey, who needs this? Not you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Do your best to get along with co-workers today to avoid disputes and disagreements. You might have some ideas about how to introduce improvements. If so, almost certainly, someone will disagree with you and nix your ideas. Then you have a clash. Go gently.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Squabbles about money or possessions are likely today. Try to avoid this if you can because it will be a bummer.” A soft answer turneth away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger.”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Family arguments are likely today but if you can avoid these, you will be the lucky one. After all, it takes two to fight (and three to make an orgy). This is a good time to remove yourself from the premises so you can get out of someone’s line of sight. This way, no fight and you have your peace of mind.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You feel so strongly about something today that you’re prepared to make a big deal about it. But is this really worth it? And when you make a big deal about something, how much ground are you losing with others? Do people admire you making this stance? I doubt it. Think before you open your mouth. What is your objective?

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Fights about money and possessions, salary and cash flow are classic today. These disputes could be about real issues or they might be just power struggles. which are generally the real reason for any fight. It’s so easy to think we are clinging to lofty ideals and principles when really, we just want to win.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Bradley Cooper (1975) shares your birthday today. You love to socialize but you get bored easily. You are dedicated to your projects and willing to work hard. You’re an optimist who doesn’t like crowds. The year 2017 is a time when 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!
