ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: avoid shopping or making important decisions from 1 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. today. The Full Moon peaks in Taurus at 2:49 p.m.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Conversations with others can go sideways in a New York minute. Not only is this the day of the Full Moon but Mercury is at odds with fuzzy Neptune, which further promotes confusion and even self-deception.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid disputes about inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and anything you own jointly with others. The Full Moon today will only increase the tension in these disputes, and a poorly placed Mercury will cloud all understanding.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Think before you speak today because your ruler Mercury is at odds with fuzzy Neptune promoting confusion and misunderstandings. In addition, the tension from today’s Full Moon puts you at odds with co-workers.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Today’s Full Moon creates tension between romantic partners, sports colleagues and dealing with children. Therefore, tread lightly! Everyone around you feels emotionally tense and doesn’t really know what’s going on. (The smart ones are faking it.)
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You might feel caught between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your career and your external world. Plus confusion or disappointment related to romance, children or shared property or a social event could complicate things.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is an accident-prone day, so slow down and take it easy. Pay attention to everything you’re doing. Be prudent in discussions with family members because it’s easy to be disappointed or feel let down. But you might not have all the facts; or you might have had unrealistic expectations. Hmmm?
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Avoid important financial negotiations and important decisions about cash flow. You could be deceived by someone, knowingly or accidentally. It is too easy to misinterpret something or jump to the wrong conclusion.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Today’s Full Moon is opposite your sign. (The only time all year this happens.) This tension can cause problems with partners and close friends. Just be aware of this and don’t get your belly in a rash. Be accommodating and tolerant.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Right now Mercury is in your sign working at cross-purposes with fuzzy Neptune. This can lead to circular disputes, misunderstandings, false assumptions and even dissembling, which is a fancy word for lying.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Guard against tension with others in group situations today. These could be minor coffee get-togethers, classroom assemblies or large conferences. Whatever the case, people are tempted to butt heads and quarrel about meaningless things.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a tough Full Moon for your sign because the Sun is at the top of your chart and the Moon is at the bottom and they are in direct opposition. Yes, you’re caught in the middle. This means you can’t please everyone. In truth, you could please hardly anyone! (When skating on thin ice, skate fast!)
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Disappointment with others is likely today, but were your expectations realistic? Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion or racial issues. Be extra clear in all your communications with authority figures because you could assume something incorrectly. Make sure you know what is expected of you and vice versa. (“You want me to whaaat?”)

Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
