Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Oy vey! (What’s with this?) Yesterday was tough and today is also gloomy. It’s important to know two things: Things look worse than they really are. And there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and it’s not a train!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a poor day to defend your own best interests in disputes about inheritances or shared property. You might feel discouraged or guilty about financial matters including debt and shared property with others. Just hang in there.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be patient with partners and close friends today. If someone close to you disappoints you, don’t take it personally. Today is ripe for misunderstandings, so just be cool and be mature. Tomorrow things are much easier. This week started tough but will end very nicely.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Don’t ask for permission or approval from a boss at work today because the reply will be, “Talk to the hand!” Everyone is in serious work mode today. Just get on board and focus on what you have to do. Don’t feel guilty about anything. Be patient with a female friend.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Romance might disappoint you today. In fact, all kinds of social situations might be a letdown. Don’t take this personally. It’s just what’s happening and a lot of people feel this way as well. You’re all dressed up with no place to go. Hard work is your best recourse today. Tomorrow is easier!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Conversations with an older family member or parent will be tough today. Don’t even go there if you have a choice. Things seem overwhelming at home, but the truth is things just look worse than they really are. Relations with others are difficult. Just cope as best you can.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

It’s easy to fall into a negative headspace or to worry too much today. But worry is actually a habit. “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere.” Don’t worry about things today — seriously. See how you feel tomorrow!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Money problems, especially connected with family and home, might discourage you today. But this is just a temporary hiccup. Truly. Tomorrow things look different! Don’t be down because of negative thinking. Remember, you’re the most strong-willed sign in the zodiac!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’ve had easier days. Today the Moon is in your sign lined up with stern Saturn, which can make you feel guilty, lonely, isolated or worried. Yikes! Not good! Optimism is a survival issue for Sagittarius. Fear not — the rest of the week is just swell.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might feel cut off from others today or lonely. “Nobody loves me.” “I’m navel lint.” It’s not like you to have a poutfest. Just let go of any feelings of insecurity because tomorrow is a completely different day. In fact, the rest of the week looks great!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Someone older or more experienced might make you feel like a schmuck. Don’t let this happen. Ignore it. Obviously, this is not the day to ask someone for a favor. Instead, steer clear of negative energy and decide to learn something new and fascinating!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is definitely not a good day to ask a boss or a parent for approval or permission. You won’t get it. Postpone this for later in the week because after today, this week really improves! (Would I kid you? Not a chance!)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Tennis champ Serena Williams (1981) shares your birthday today. You are witty and charismatic. You like to be helpful and kind to others. This year you will take inventory and view your past triumphs and failures because you are finishing a nine-year cycle. Some of you will let go of people, jobs, places and things in order to move on to something new. Fortunately, it’s a time of also moving away from heavy burdens. Yay!
