Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The key to your success is patience. Do not jump the gun. Do not be quick to reply without thinking if you are agitated by someone, especially an ex-partner. (Gulp.) People are a bit grumpy and jumpy today. Now is the time to demonstrate grace under pressure.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might be challenged dealing with a parent or an authority figure — a boss or even a police person. Likewise, you might hit a few speed bumps dealing with work-related issues, clients and coworkers. Don’t get caught up in an argument. It doesn’t matter who’s right. Stay calm.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a tricky day. Parents will have to be extra patient with kids to avoid hissy fits and meltdowns. Likewise, romantic partners will have to be patient with each other as well because conversations can be intense and too emotional. Take it easy!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Discussions with a family member could lead to arguments today. They might be about money or something that you own, or it could be a disagreement about which is the better way to do something. Because of increased chaos and activity at home, this is a testing time for you. Patience.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

The moon is in your sign, which can heighten your emotions and your feelings. The good news is it can also increase your good luck and help things come your way. Nevertheless, conversations with others will be challenging. Stay regal and cool. Take the high road.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Disputes about money, kids, social outings, vacation plans, sports, money and possessions are possible today. (Quite a wide swath that can trip you up!) Therefore, play things low-key. Guard against knee-jerk reactions. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You like to have a harmonious environment. Even though you are a great debater, you don’t like arguments and confrontations. Therefore, tread carefully today with family members as well as friends, especially a female acquaintance. Do what you can to keep the peace.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be disgruntled about something today. Interactions with parents and bosses might not be easy. Fortunately, with Venus in your sign, whatever you do, you will do with grace and diplomacy, which is very wise. Be a role model for others today. Just do it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Interactions with friends or groups are difficult today, which is why you might feel discouraged. Don’t let this get you down. Keep in mind that whatever happens, it’s just a brief dark cloud on your horizon. Don’t get your belly in a rash.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Discussions with bosses, parents, teachers and the police might be a standoff today. You might feel you’re caught in that old movie “Bad Day at Black Rock.” Avoid squabbles about money and possessions. Remember to be courteous with authority figures, because this works surprisingly well.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Steer clear of controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues because this is a classic day for power struggles and arguments. (You need this like a fish needs a bicycle.) Listen politely and think about your long-term objectives.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Avoid squabbles about shared property, loans or shared responsibilities today because they’re not worth it. Likewise, things might be tense between you and a fellow coworker or someone connected with your health. You might even encounter conflict with someone about a pet. Don’t get involved. Stand your ground but stay patient.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Brie Larson (1989) shares your birthday. You are a confident person with excellent business savvy. You like to be in control of what you do. You have good people skills and work hard because you are success oriented. This year you are more attuned to your spiritual or religious beliefs. You are a seeker. You will examine your past to see how previous actions lead to future outcomes.
