Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions after 5:15 p.m. The moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a wistful day full of fantasizing. However, Mars now changes signs guaranteeing that you will be gung ho to work hard in the next six weeks. Not only will you work hard, you will delegate to others as well. “Be happy in your work!” (Remember Colonel Saito?)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You have been focused on home and family. Today, however, as Mars changes signs, it will hype your desire to party and play, which puts you in party/play mode for the next six weeks! It’s the perfect time to take a vacation if you can swing it.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Relations with authority figures are confusing, which means you should not jump to conclusions. Meanwhile, you can expect increased activity and chaos on the home front for the next six weeks. Oy vey. This might be because of residential moves, visiting guests or renovations.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your idealism is aroused, especially about politics, religion and racial issues. Perhaps this will spur you to express yourself to others? Certainly, in the next six weeks, you’re ready to say what you mean and mean what you say! Oh yeah.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a poor day to make important decisions about inheritances and shared property because issues are fuzzy. Furthermore, there are the restrictions of the Moon Alert. (See above.) Having said that, you will work hard to boost your earnings in the next six weeks.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today fiery Mars moves into your sign for six weeks, which will make you charged up, energetic, forceful and aggressive! In fact, it might be wise to get more physical exercise so that you can blow off any pent-up steam that might build up within you. Stay balanced.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Issues are confusing at work. If you feel this way, do nothing. Certainly, be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert (see above). It’s in your best interests to sharpen your Spidey sense and be aware if someone might be working against your best interest in the next month. It’s possible.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The next six weeks, you will be more forceful dealing with others, especially groups. In fact, you might be involved in competition with someone. Meanwhile, today is hazy, romantic and idealistic. Kick back and enjoy your surroundings.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Issues at home might be confusing. If so, remember that unexpressed expectations almost always lead to disappointment. Other people can’t read your mind. For the next six weeks, you will be more ambitious than usual, which will help you to accomplish your goals.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will be keen to travel and explore more of the world in the next six weeks. You might also become more involved in heated debates about politics, religion and racial issues. This same aggressive energy might be expressed in medicine, the law and anything to do with higher education.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Disputes about shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and insurance issues might arise in the next six weeks. If they do, you’re prepared to stand your ground and defend your best interests. You’ll be Popeye, “I yam what I yam!”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Make an effort to be more patient with others in the next six weeks because fiery Mars will be opposite your sign. When this happens, it can make you easily irritated with others. Perhaps they are irritating? Or perhaps you are less patient? Good luck.

This year you will feel physically energetic.
