ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution! Avoid shopping or making important decisions all day until 7:30 p.m. (Gulp.)
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You’ll be so clever with creative, intellectual work in the next six weeks, you might influence others. You’ll be convincing because you believe so strongly in your ideas. (Some might encounter legal difficulties or disputes with the law.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Disputes about shared property or anything you own jointly with others might arise in the next few months. Ego conflicts are very likely. It might also be hard to get a loan or mortgage in the next few months. Easy does it.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Because Mars is going to be directly opposite your sign for the next few months, you can expect increased tension with partners and friends. Others seem to be openly aggressive! Remember: In part, this is your perception of them. (But hey, they might also be annoying!)
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll be gung ho to work hard in the next few months because you want to get better organized. In particular, you’ll take a lot of pride in whatever you do, which is why you want everything to be ticketyboo. You also want credit for what you do. (Not a great time to be a team player.)
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Oh joy! The next few months will be wonderfully playful and amusing. You want to be free to do your thing and your thing is going to be all about having fun! Enjoy sports events, movies, the arts, and above all romantic flirtations. In fact, romance will be frisky and athletic.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You might be shoving furniture around at home in the next few months. Others will be coping with renovations and chaos due to visiting guests. Confusion due to painting, drywalling or the pounding of nails can also lead to domestic conflicts. (Yikes! Run for cover.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In the next few months, you’ll be unusually convincing, which is why this is a powerful time for those of you in sales, marketing, teaching, acting or even those who drive for a living. When you speak, others will listen!
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You’re going to work hard for your earnings in the next few months, and you’re also going to want to use your possessions to get things done. Basically, you want to feel that you’re getting the most bang for your buck out of whatever you own.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) : You can expect a lot of increased activity in your world in the next few months because Mars will be in your sign. (Mars rules your muscles, your sexual energy and your ability to assert yourself.) This will give you a fabulous amount of energy to get anything done. “Move that mountain!”
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be careful of silly, self-defeating behavior patterns in the next few months because they might easily arise. However, this will give you an opportunity to be more conscious of these old habits. Just remember: Instead of confronting others, confront yourself.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll be particularly effective in all kinds of group activities in the next few months because you have tons of drive and energy. Not only that, you’ll be unusually positive with others as well.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Even you might be surprised at how much your ambition is aroused in the next few months. You’ve decided you want something, plus — you’re going places! (“I want it all!”) Be careful you don’t threaten your boss.
