ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 6 a.m. today, we have the “All Clear” to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Libra.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Cool your jets because feelings of irritation and impatience could create an accident. This doesn’t have to happen. It’s all up to you. In addition, be careful about lipping off to someone without thinking because you’ll be tempted to do this, too. (Oy vey.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Disputes about money, earnings, possessions and possibly a purchase could easily arise. Naturally, you’re not going to take this sitting down because you take your money, earnings, assets and possessions very seriously. Don’t overreact.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Mercury is in your sign today at odds with fiery Mars, which is the classic setup for arguments, disputes and nasty little retorts. They just seem to leak out of your mouth. (“What did I do?”) Demonstrate some mental self-control by thinking before you open your clever yap.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You might be doing a slow burn about something but you feel you can’t speak up. Naturally, this frustrates you even more! Far better to channel this energy into research or working behind the scenes; this way you come out ahead.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It’s easy to end up fighting with friends or people in group settings today. Naturally, you don’t start your day intending to do this. You don’t look in the mirror and say, “Who can I really annoy today?” It will happen in a split second if you don’t remember to zip your lip. Forewarned is forearmed.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a very poor day to deal with authority figures: parents, teachers, bosses and VIPs. Don’t make your pitch. Don’t ask for permission. Don’t try for approval. And above all, don’t argue with them because things will go south so fast your head will spin.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues. This is the kind of day where people are looking for a fight. Although you’re an excellent debater, true arguments destroy your peace of mind. Protect yourself and walk the other direction.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Disputes about shared property, bills, insurance matters, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others might arise. Watch my lips. (Sort of.) This is a very poor day to discuss these subjects! Friday is a much better day. Much, much better.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Difficulties with parents, partners, bosses and close friends (have we left anyone out?) will likely arise. Knowing this ahead of time, you can demonstrate grace under pressure. Use your breezy humor to sidestep prickly conversations. (That way everyone stays happy, including you.)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be patient with co-workers and customers at work because nothing is to be gained by arguing. Anger only makes everyone miserable. It actually accomplishes nothing! Furthermore, you might end up looking like a dork and who wants this? Not you.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Parents will have to be extra-patient with the kids today, no question. In fact, angry feelings — even if unexpressed — could trigger accidents around children, so be careful and be vigilant. This is also a rocky day for romance, so don’t push buttons with loved ones.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Disputes at home with family members are likely today. But why even go there? It just ruins how everyone feels at home. Instead, be the voice of peace in your family. Use your aggressive energy to move furniture or tackle some major repairs.
IF MAY 30 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Hockey player Aaron Volpatti (1985) shares your birthday today. Routine always stifles you because you need freedom of action. Because of this, freelancing is a good choice for you. You are fast-moving, fast-talking and you make fast decisions. Despite your speed, you can be careful with details and are often skilled with your hands. In the year ahead, you will build or construct something valuable to you. Your rewards will soon follow.
