ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the “all clear” today to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Sagittarius until 5:51 p.m. today. After that, it moves into Capricorn.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Avoid controversial subjects today. That doesn’t mean this has to be an argumentative day, but there is a point where you could get your belly in a rash. Therefore, avoid anything that pushes your buttons. Easy does it.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Minor squabbles about shared property, insurance matters, taxes, debt and anything you own jointly with others might come up today. Or maybe not. Just be aware that these subject areas are a little delicate and inclined to quickly burst into an argument.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Situations with partners are a bit prickly today but only for a short while. You might be able to skate through this day with no problems or you could hit a speed bump and have a strong difference of opinions!
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): People are pretty touchy at work today so tread carefully. Fortunately, because the Sun is in your sign now, you have divine protection in a way. Let’s just say things are inclined to go your way. Plus you’re full of money-making ideas. Ka-ching!
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Be patient with children today. You might also have to be tolerant when dealing with the entertainment world and the hospitality industry — and hey — let’s throw in sports and romance as well. But these are small temptations to be irritable. Keep smiling.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a mildly accident-prone day at home, which is not a big deal really. Just slow down so you don’t stub your toe or break a glass. Definitely avoid arguments with female relatives. But on the whole, this is a good day. Relax.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Be extra aware of what you say and do today and don’t rush around willy-nilly because there is a potential for minor accidents both verbal or physical. It’s a small influence but it’s there.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re in the mood for something different because you want to explore more of the world. (Your gonads are in overdrive as well.) Be patient with money matters today whether it’s related to earnings or expenditures. You might briefly lose it. (No upside to that.)
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): There’s a strong chance that you’ll feel more emotional than usual about things today. You will be aware of this if someone crosses paths with you and you suddenly overreact. It’s a quickly passing influence so keep your shirt on (which is tough when you have to get something off your chest).
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): A great deal of happiness depends on our own state of mind, doesn’t it? Today is a case in point. You might feel irritated with someone, which then makes you say something that makes them irritated with you and then the fun begins. You have power over your day. (Sort of.)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You might feel challenged by someone today, especially in a group situation. My advice to you is to just let go. Consider it a brief, dark cloud passing on your horizon. No biggie. This way nobody ends up with egg on their face, especially you.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Avoid scuffles with authority figures today because there really is no upside, is there? And anyhow, whatever annoys you will quickly be a thing of the past. Just let it go. (There’s no time like the pleasant.)
IF JULY 2 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Wendy’s food tycoon and philanthropist Dave Thomas (1932-2002) shares your birthday today. You have a wide range of feelings! You have a wonderful imagination and a strong fantasy life. You love to be friendly because you want harmony with others. You’re very aware of being responsible for yourself and taking care of your own needs. In the year ahead, a major change could take place, perhaps as significant as something that happened around 2003.
