ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid making important decisions or shopping after 10:45 a.m. today. The moon is in Aquarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today is full of mixed messages, which means you feel pulled in several directions, or at least you might feel inclined to stagger or trip! Even though you might hear good advice from someone older, perhaps you should do nothing. (See Moon Alert above.) What to do?
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Serious discussions with bosses, parents and VIPs could be very helpful to you. You might impress them by sounding like you have really done your homework and you know what you’re talking about. Nevertheless, this is a poor day to make important decisions, right? (See Moon Alert above.)
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You might have an impulse to make long-range travel plans or deal with important situations regarding publishing, the media, medicine, the law and anything to do with higher education. But all you can do is collect data. Don’t act on anything — not today.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): In one way, this is an excellent day to research red-tape details and get advice about shared property, insurance matters, taxes and debt from someone more experienced. Nevertheless, don’t sign anything or make an important decision before checking with the Moon Alert above.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): For the second day in a row, you still have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Be patient and accommodating. Serious discussions, especially with older people, will no doubt unfold. Just listen and make notes.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t tackle new projects today; instead just finish up whatever is on your plate. Keep your head down and your powder dry. Stick with routine matters and expect shortages, silly mistakes and some mild misunderstandings.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Children could be an increased responsibility for some reason today. Or you might have a serious discussion with children or about the care and education of children. You might also discuss vacation plans with someone older. Just don’t agree to anything today.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You could have some serious concerns (or perhaps they are just practical) about family, home and whatever is going on in your private life. It’s a good day to ponder this, and you can try to make plans but don’t set anything in stone until after the time in the Moon Alert above.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re thinking about serious practical plans for the future today. Quite possibly, a discussion with someone older or more experienced will trigger this.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You’re in a practical frame of mind when it comes to money, cash flow and your possessions today. Since you’re in this frame of mind, read the Moon Alert above and don’t spend your money!
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): In one way, you feel very serious and grounded and you would welcome discussions with older people about profound matters. But in another way, this day is entirely goofy! (Two incompatible forces are meeting.) Just think; do not act.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Any kind of research might go extremely well today. For starters, you’re inclined to work behind the scenes or with secret matters today; you’ll also very easily think out-of-the-box. These are two excellent influences for brilliant research. Nevertheless, no matter what you ultimately conclude or discover, don’t act on anything until tomorrow.
IF JULY 6 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actress Jennifer Saunders (1958) shares your birthday today. You’re involved in the lives of others because life sweeps you in certain directions and you have little choice. You learn not to hold on too tight, to let go and move on. You strive to live in the moment and be present for each day. In the year ahead, something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end to make room for something new.
