ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: after 5:30 a.m. today, avoid shopping or making important decisions for the rest of the day. It’s a goofy day and the Moon is in Pisces.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Most definitely be patient with family members and people at home because minor accidents could occur. Small appliances might break down. Your home routine will be interrupted.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is an accident-prone day; slow down and take it easy. Pay attention to everything you say and do. Avoid controversial subjects with others because arguments, especially with siblings, can easily break out.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be extra-careful in all your financial transactions today. If shopping, count change and keep receipts. Guard possessions against loss or theft. Don’t get involved in explosive arguments about possessions or money because you will only empower your adversary.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Holy Spandex! Relationships with others are a total squeeze play today. Arguments could break out because your mind is so stimulated! Ideas are flashing through your consciousness and this makes you impulsive and almost reckless. Think before you act.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Concentration on anything will be almost impossible. Your impulse will be to shoot from the hip and act impulsively. Slow down and take it easy. Measure twice; cut once.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Guard against knee-jerk reactions in group settings today. Someone might say something what suddenly triggers you!
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might overreact to something that a boss, parent, teacher (or even the police) says to you today. This is not wise! Don’t get your belly in a rash, and don’t quit your day job. Don’t fly off the handle. Do expect a few curve balls. Be cool. Think: “I am Clint Eastwood.”
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Double-check travel plans because interruptions or changes are likely. Ditto for anything to do with higher education, medicine and the law. Definitely avoid controversial subjects like politics and religion when talking to others because people are highly explosive today!
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Check your bank account today. Make sure you know what is happening with debt, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others because a few surprises could happen. Assume nothing but be prepared for a few changes. “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!”
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): It’s hard to stay on topic with others today, especially partners and family members. Everyone is all over the map talking about everything at once. Blah, blah, blah. At best, it’s confusing; at worst, it’s argumentative and emotionally nasty. (“Whaaat? This again?”)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Things could go sideways in a New York minute at work today. Computer crashes, cancelled meetings, power outages, fire drills, missed messages and broken equipment will upset your daily routine, for sure! Therefore, allow extra time for wiggle room. That’s your best chance for success. (However, you might dream up some genius-like ideas.)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Pisces parents should be vigilant in their care for their kids today because this is an accident-prone day for their children. Be responsible, know what is happening at all times and avoid dangerous surroundings and circumstances. Romance will be full of surprises as well!
IF JUNE 11 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: TV host/surgeon/author Dr. Mehmet Oz (1960) shares your birthday today. You have a strong sense of perseverance and this, combined with your courage, allows you to push your boundaries “where no man has gone before.” You believe in doing your homework and will study thoroughly before you attempt something. In fact, in the year ahead, your study of something in particular will intrigue you and benefit you in the near future.
