ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 8 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. today. After that, the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today is definitely a mixed bag. Quarrels and upsets at work or with partners and friends are highly likely. Basically, these are defiant power struggles with others. And yet, relations with children and amusing diversions are great fun! (Go figure.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Things at work could go south in a New York minute today. Expect computer crashes, staff shortages, cancelled meetings and unexpected delays. This could impact travel plans or your ability to get money and resources from others.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Romance is rocky today. Arguments with others, especially about shared property, are likely. Or perhaps these arguments are about shared expenses or the division of labor? Fortunately, your relations with siblings and everyday contacts are wonderful.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): This is an excellent day for financial matters, cash flow and earnings. Trust your money-making ideas. Unfortunately, your home routine will likely be upset by arguments or bizarre happenings.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is an accident-prone day for your sign, so slow down and take it easy. Be mindful of everything you say and do because an accident could negatively impact your health. Not good! Fortunately, for most of you, this won’t happen.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Squabbles about money and possessions or something to do with finances at work are likely today. Arguments about costs related to children, vacations, and amusing entertainments are probably the cause. Fortunately, you feel good about yourself.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is a popular, sparkling day for you! You will especially enjoy dealing with groups and meeting people from other cultures and different backgrounds. Perhaps this is what triggers arguments with family members or partners?
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Relations with authority figures, parents and bosses are excellent today. In fact you could develop a crush on your boss today. Nevertheless, arguments with others at work or interruptions to your job could be a pain in the neck. It’s a crapshoot.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Travel plans totally delight you. This is also a wonderful day for anything to do with publishing, the media, medicine and the law, as well as higher education. Looking good! Refrain from arguments with others in group situations, especially about money and possessions. (“Don’t harsh my buzz, man.”)
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Difficulties with authority figures — bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs and the police — are almost unavoidable today. Something will blow you out of the water. (Don’t quit your day job.) Meanwhile, gifts and goodies from some other source will help you. (Whew!)
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be careful: This is an accident-prone day for your sign. This includes verbal accidents as well as physical actions. Slow down and be mindful of everything you say and do. Fortunately, relations with partners and close friends are warm and loving.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Make friends with your bank account. Unexpected news about shared property, money from other sources or your own possessions could be unpleasant. To offset this, things are very good at work. Nevertheless, stay on top of your financial matters. Do some damage control.
