Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This can be a productive day at work. However, even though your mind is clear, focused and practical, nevertheless your dealings with authority figures might be strained. Steer clear of these. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Children might be an increased responsibility today. Social situations, the arts, sports events and fun situations might have less appeal. You might feel you should be doing something more worthwhile — like work. Yeah, it’s that kinda day. However, you will work hard.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Family discussions with older family members or parents will be discouraging today. You might feel ambushed or shut down. Instead, roll up your sleeves and deal with home repairs and things you’ve been avoiding and putting off. Just dig right in!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

“It was Monday. It was Monday all day.” Do not fall prey to a negative mindset today. Don’t feel self-critical or critical of others. Today life might feel hard. You might even feel lonely or cut off from others. Shake these feelings off! Instead, do some hard work because that will turn things around.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Financial matters might concern you today. You might feel broke. Perhaps you can’t afford to do something you want to do. Someone might even deny you money. (Whaaat?) This is a poor day for financial negotiations because you’re not in the right frame of mind. “I owe, I owe, so off to work I go.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Because your mind is so focused and practical today, you can accomplish a lot. Just work hard and get on with things. It is not a social day. People are restrained and even critical. Therefore, don’t expect too much from others — or yourself. Just work.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might feel cut off from others today, which is troublesome because you are the kind of person who needs company. But hey, many people feel this way today because Mercury is at odds with Saturn. Fortunately, this is fleeting. Focus on research because this will go well.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It will be tough to meet the demands of friends and groups today. It feels like everyone wants more than you can give. It’s OK to take stock and be realistic and protect your own time and energy. If you don’t take care of yourself, who else will?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a tough day to deal with parents, bosses and VIPs. They might be critical or demanding. You might get discouraged. Therefore, avoid important conversations. Instead, keep to yourself and keep busy.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is an excellent day to study anything because you have strong powers of concentration and you won’t be distracted by social situations. You will actually want to keep on track with whatever you’re doing. You will be productive in medicine, the law and anything to do with higher education.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a good day to tackle red-tape details that you would normally avoid. However, it’s not a good day to argue your case in disputes about inheritances or shared property. Instead, just take care of smaller details that require focus and concentration. “You got it Pontiac!”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Postpone important discussions with partners and close friends for another day because your heart is just not into this today. You’re not in the right frame of mind to convince others or defend yourself. Tidy up loose details and deal with the small stuff.
