Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be ready to apply the brakes when needed because your feisty energy is challenged by Pluto. (Oh yeah!) In its most positive expression, you can creatively transform the world around you. Will that happen? Maybe. More likely you will have a fierce power struggle with someone. Stay chill.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It’s easy to be your own worst enemy today. Beware! If you are angry at someone, you might be tempted to do something underhanded or guilt trip them in some way. Don’t do this because it will backfire. Meanwhile, don’t let anyone victimize you, either. Be cool.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

If you are annoyed with a friend or a member of a group, this is a poor day to express your feelings. If you do, things will get outta hand so fast, you will regret it. That’s because today’s energy promotes power struggles. Many people will be at odds with each other. (Hide!)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

It won’t benefit you to be in a power struggle with a boss, parent, teacher or a member of the police. Do your best to avoid this. Many people are looking for a fight, so don’t get involved. Furthermore, avoid dangerous, crime-ridden areas. You have been warned.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Resist the urge to get on your soapbox and share your opinions about politics, religion or racial issues. Not today. Issues are hot and people are looking for an excuse to fight. Therefore, don’t even go there. You won’t change anyone’s mind.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Don’t get your belly in a rash about disputes pertaining to inheritances, insurance issues and shared property. It’s not worth it. Furthermore, people are so opinionated today, and so inclined to get involved in power struggles, a rational, logical conversation will be difficult. Stay chill.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You will have to be patient with close friends and partners to keep peace and harmony in your world. Remember that is your objective: Keep peace and harmony in your world. Therefore, don’t take the bait. Don’t try to be right. “You can be right — or you can be in the relationship.”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Do yourself a favor and steer clear of arguments with coworkers and customers, because if you get involved, things could get nasty. Ego battles and power struggles are par for the course, so sidestep these if you can. Postpone important discussions for another day.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Dear parents, please be patient with your kids today to avoid hissy fits and meltdowns. Likewise, romantic partners must be patient with each other. Equipment failures related to your job or perhaps something related to a pet might occur. Patience is your best friend today. Oy!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Do whatever you can to avoid conflict with family members today because it will be intense and nasty. You don’t need this. They don’t need this. No one needs this. This means you have to be patient and cooperative and not make a big deal about anything.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be wise today. Be proactive for your own best interests. Avoid dangerous neighborhoods or places with high crime. Likewise, avoid arguments with siblings, relatives and neighbors. Be cool and cooperative.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Money squabbles might arise today because people have strong, intense feelings about everything. This is why ego battles and power struggles are taking place between many people. You might be upset about a possession or financial issues. Stay calm.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Sebastian Stan (1982) shares your birthday. You are dynamic and generous, especially to your lovers. This year you will learn something that sets you in a new direction, which could be crucial for your success next year. It’s a time of learning and perhaps teaching as well. Explore meditation, yoga or any discipline that helps you get a better understanding of who you are. Invest in your future self.
