Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race today because you are feisty! You are high-energy and you’re ready to defend your ideas. However, you will likely come on too strong for others. Lighten up. Circle the wagons get the women and children in the center.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It would be wise to postpone important discussions about inheritances and shared property today because they could escalate into a nasty dispute. People are energetic, defensive and explosive. Be patient with a female colleague at work as well. (Sheesh!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

As you well know, you gotta know when to hold and when to fold. Today is probably the day to fold because people are ready for bear. Arguments with bosses, partners and kids might erupt. “Yikes! I’m surrounded!” Pull in your reins and be patient.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be patient with co-workers today. When talking to others, try not to be aggressive about health issues or perhaps something to do with a pet. Everyone is looking for a fight today, and this you do not need. (Ya think?) Even family members are testy. (Find somewhere to hide.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Parents have to be patient with their kids today because hissy fits and meltdowns can take place. (No matter what their age.) Likewise, romantic partners might be at each other’s throats, and by this I don’t mean snuggling and kissing. Patience is your best ally today.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Avoid family squabbles, which might erupt today because of money issues or something to do with someone’s possession or something that you own. Family is gold, and fighting at home is harmful to everyone. Use your self-discipline and patience to get through this day.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the moon is in your sign at odds with Pluto. Meanwhile, the sun is at odds with fiery Mars! What does this mean? It means that everyone is at odds with everyone else! The thing to remember is that patience is the antidote to anger. When you feel anger arising within you, apply patience, followed by dark chocolate.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Money squabbles might occur today. People are very touchy about money — almost more than anything else. (Curious.) You might also be doing a slow boil about something that you can’t speak about. Nevertheless, you are strong-willed, which means you can be chill.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re coming on like gangbusters today, which might feel good to you, but not to someone else. Try to imagine what it’s like to walk a mile in someone else’s wedgies. Avoid an argument with a female friend. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Disagreements with bosses, parents and even the police might arise today. In part, this is because you are disgruntled about something. When you’re unhappy, it’s easy to slip into anger. Don’t do this — at least, for your own well-being.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You value your friendships and your relations with groups. This is one reason why it will behoove you to be patient when dealing with friends and groups today to avoid conflict and friction. Likewise, steer clear of politics, religion and race. Be smart. Life is short (and fat).

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Avoid nasty confrontations with bosses, parents and the police today because they could easily arise. You might also be at odds with someone about how to divide or share something or perhaps about different value systems. Could be anything. Be nice. (Because you are)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Alfred Enoch (1988) shares your birthday today. You are intelligent and imaginative. You are also honest, loyal, candid and forgiving. This year you are wrapping up a nine-year cycle. That is why it is a time of completions and taking inventory. Expect to say goodbye to people, places and possessions. The good news is you are moving away from heavy burdens to something new and lighter!
