Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Equipment breakdowns, computer crashes, staff shortages, power outages and mixed-up communications are classic at work today. In fact, they might occur anywhere you are trying to get a job done. Co-workers will be feisty and rebellious! (Sheesh!)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Parents take note: This is an accident-prone day for your kids, so be extra vigilant. Know where they are at all times. Make sure you remove them from hazardous situations. Meanwhile, a surprise invite might come your way or a planned social event might be canceled.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Small appliances might break down today or minor breakages could occur. A family member might drop a bombshell with unexpected news. (“Luke, I am your father.”) Surprise company might knock at the door.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

In conversations with others, you might be blunt, hasty or rash today. It’s as if you think without speaking. (You can’t help it!) This kind of rash action could lead to an accident, so pay attention to everything you say and do both verbally and physically.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Keep an eye on your money today because something unexpected could impact your assets and wealth. For starters, you might find money or you might lose money. Something you own might be stolen, lost or damaged. You might have a brilliant moneymaking idea or your earnings could be cut. It’s a crapshoot!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your mind is racing today! You have good ideas but you’re thinking so fast, you’re mentally going off in all directions, which is why others might seem to be slow. Note: Be careful not to overlook something important because you’re being hasty. Take a breath.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you feel unsettled for some reason. You have that feeling you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop. Worse yet, your afraid it might drop on your head! And what if it’s a big boot? Exactly, no one wants this. Relax, it’s the vibes in the air today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A friend might surprise you or shock you today. Alternatively, you might meet somebody new today who is a real character. The upshot of it all is that your interaction with groups and friends will hold some unpredictable moments. Get ready.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might be surprised at something a parent or a boss says to you today. Do not overreact. Do not quit your day job. On the upside, you might have a brilliant idea. People tend to be blunt so don’t take anything personally. Be careful that you do not say anything you will later regret. Once the words have left your mouth, you can’t get them back.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Travel plans will be canceled, changed or rescheduled today. Likewise for schedules at colleges and universities. On the other hand, you might suddenly have to travel when you least expected to do so. Today is full of unpredictable events and rebellious people. Oy!
