Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 5:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Aries into Taurus.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Tread carefully! This is not the day to throw your weight around. Ironically, you have a lot of energy, which you want to use to deal with the chaos at home. However, if you are pushy, others will push back. Stay chill.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
No matter how determined you are, do not try to coerce others to agree with you (which you will be tempted to do). If you do, it will be at your own peril. Avoid dangerous places. Forewarned is forearmed.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Power struggles about money, possessions or something that you might own will be nasty. If you make a big deal about something, you will get instant flak coming right back at you. Wham! Therefore, be patient. Wait for another day.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Ego battles with partners and close friends are likely. This is a very poor day for these disputes. They will be nasty and probably futile. Furthermore, quite likely, you will not win. The more you push for something, the more resistance you will incur. Pull back.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Behind-the-scenes resistance to your ideas and efforts is very likely. Your best option is to gracefully step aside. Don’t try to do the impossible. Today is not about heroics or even aggressive force; it’s about being smart and staying intact to address this another day.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You might be at odds with a friend today or you might be at odds with a group. Either way, this is not a good situation. You might think you can win — but not really. You can’t. You will lose more than you think you will gain. Therefore, cut your losses and pull back.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
A nasty battle between parents, bosses and family members (could be anything) might take place today. The more you push for what you want, the more you will increase the opposition to you. This is not a case about right or wrong. It’s about knowing when to hold and when to fold.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is an accident-prone day for you, so pay attention to everything you say and do. Avoid getting wrapped up in controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues. People will not listen today. There is an aggressive energy out there that might harm you. Hide somewhere.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Arguments about shared property, taxes, debt plus shared responsibilities might be real power struggles today. They could be nasty. (You need this like a fish needs a bicycle.) Therefore, stay away from all this. Keep your head down and your powder dry.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Arguments between couples, professional partners and close friends might ensue today because fiery Mars is opposing Pluto. This means people are trying to subject others to their wishes. They’re doing everything to block what the other party wants. Steer clear of this.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Don’t get involved in power struggles about a pet today or something to do with your health, or anything that is job-related. If you do, you will regret it. Furthermore, you won’t win, anyway. Instead, fold your tents and silently steal away.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Parents must be patient with their kids because patience is the antidote to anger. This is a classic day for hissy fits and meltdowns. Remember that you are the adult. Meanwhile, romance is threatened by power struggles. Sheesh!
