ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 9:30 a.m. until 5:15 p.m. today. After that the moon moves from cancer into Leo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Without question, there is considerable confusion around you today. Either you hopelessly misunderstand others or they hopelessly misunderstand you. And if something looks too good to be true, it is! Today is full of “wishful thinking.”
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be careful about all kinds of financial transactions or anything to do with your cash flow. Business dealings are suspect. Someone could misrepresent something. Or you might just incorrectly size something up. Keep your money in your pocket.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today your ruler Mercury is at odds with fuzzy Neptune. This is an indication many people will have fuzzy communications and misunderstandings. Expectations will not be met. Conversations will be like two ships passing in the night. In some cases outright deception will occur. “Liar!”
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is definitely a confusing day for several reasons. Therefore, avoid important decisions or major expenditures. Avoid lying to others, even if you are trying to sidestep an embarrassing situation or hide something. You’ll probably be busted.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Decisions that are reached by consensus in group situations will be faulty or need to be amended later. All your dealings with others today will be like herding cats. Don’t be frustrated. And don’t be disappointed if someone doctors the truth. Many people value honesty less than you do.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Avoid important discussions with bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police. Deceit, lies, confusion and misinformation will be classic. At best, misunderstandings will occur. Therefore, why even go there? (And if you are there, get out as soon as possible.) “I have to see a man about a dog.”
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Travel plans are fuzzy and subject to change today. You might also be disappointed in discussions about politics, religion or any kind of ideology. Do not fall for any kind of cult today! (And don’t try to please others, just relax.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Avoid important business with financial discussions and anything to do with shared property or inheritances. It’s foolish to try to do important things like that because you don’t have all the facts or someone might deceive you. Just chill. Use self-discipline.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t react if partners and close friends sound like they’re broadcasting from another planet. You might sound the same way to them. Even if you tried to be clear in your communications, you will be misunderstood. It’s just what it is.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Take nothing for granted at work today. Believe no one. Double-check your own work. It’s so easy to make a mistake today because you’re sort of looking at the world with Vaseline on your lens. (And so are others!) Go very slowly and just cope.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Although this is a confusing day for many people, for you it could be highly creative. In other words, even if you don’t see things clearly, this might give you an inspiration in a weird way. But do be extra-cautious taking care of children because this is an accident-prone day for them, especially with poisons and bad food.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Postpone important family discussions for another day. Just take things easy at home. This is an extremely poor day to do important real-estate negotiations; in fact, you could be swindled. Avoid domestic misunderstandings as well (which is practically impossible). Good luck!
IF MAY 25 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Octavia Spencer (1970) shares your birthday today. You’re a survivor. You’re resilient, resourceful and highly adaptable, and you will always fight for what you want. You have very clear ideas about what you think life should be all about. However, you are always idealistic. In particular, you value personal honor. Good news! The coming year might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
