Moon Alert

We have the all clear to shop and do business. The moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be vigilant about your kids or if you are dealing with kids because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. No question. Look around you and make sure hazardous situations are removed. Know where your kids are. Meanwhile, social activities will be canceled, changed or suddenly happening!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Something will throw your home and family scene into turmoil. A small appliance might break down or you might break something. Family arguments could break out. The key is not to overreact. Stay calm so that you can deal with the unexpected in a skillful way.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is an accident-prone day for your sign — no question. This means you have to pay attention to everything you say and do. Slow down and take it easy. On the upside, you might have unusual, genius-like ideas because you can think out of the box. Expect to meet new faces and new places.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Keep an eye on your money because this is an erratic day when it comes to your assets. You might find money; you might lose money. Something you own might be damaged, lost or stolen. Conversely, you might have a brilliant money-making idea? It could be anything.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you feel independent and rebellious. You’re full of clever, bright, fast-changing ideas and you don’t want to be held back. You don’t want to be told what to do and you don’t want to be restricted in any way. Well, that about covers everything, doesn’t it?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you will be fascinated by new ideas and anything unusual that comes your way. However, your desire for some peace and quiet will be interrupted. Just accept this. When talking to others, be careful about agreeing to something or making promises you might regret.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your relations with someone younger might surprise you. Anything could happen because this is an accident-prone day, in addition to which people are moving fast and inclined to be impulsive. Drive defensively. Don’t overreact if a friend does something you least expect. Stay cool.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Relations with bosses, parents and VIPs are unpredictable. Someone might say or do something that upsets you. If this is the case, don’t quit your day job — give yourself a chance to give everything a sober second thought. Don’t volunteer for anything. Just maintain.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Travel will be canceled, delayed or changed. Ironically, if you didn’t have to travel, you might suddenly be forced to do so. Likewise, schedules with colleges, universities and technical schools could be confused, interrupted or canceled, which means you should check out everything before you show up.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Stay in touch with your bank and financial matters because today is a crapshoot. Things are unpredictable. Something unexpected could affect something to do with your involvement with other people’s money or debt. Make sure you know what’s happening.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might have a quarrel with a close friend or partner. Certainly, people are feisty and independent! Or perhaps someone will demand more freedom in the relationship? Whatever the case, stay on your toes because something you least expect will probably happen.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your job routine will change because of power outages, staff shortages, computer glitches, delivery problems or equipment breakdowns. Be wise and give yourself extra time so that you have wiggle room to cope with the unexpected. Back up your work.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Angela Bassett (1958) shares your birthday. You have a great imagination! You are also empathetic and interested in the future. This year you are winding up many things you began nine years ago. It’s time to leave behind heavy burdens and move to something new and lighter! Start to identify what is no longer relevant in your life. You are lightening your load to get ready for new beginnings.
