ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Moon Alert: We have the all clear today to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 6:15 p.m. The Moon is in Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today you want to get better organized at work and also with matters that relate to your health and well-being. This is why you might lose patience with someone later in the day if your efforts are blocked. Cool your jets.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’re a Friday person in a Monday world today. Enjoy yourself. Play hooky from work or take a long lunch. Grab a movie. Nevertheless, later in the day, you’ll be annoyed with someone. Patience is your best friend.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Home and family matters are prominent in your mind today. If you could cocoon at home today, you’d like to do so. Regardless of your plans, something will destroy your serenity, causing your peace of mind to fly out the window.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Your communications with others are personal and subjective today. You’re speaking from a gut level and you want to lay your cards on the table, especially if you’re talking to female relatives. (“Hi, Sis.”) Don’t resort to sarcasm or anger. Take the high road.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You’re focused on money, cash flow and possessions. You don’t want anything you own to be broken, borrowed or stolen. (“I’m guarding my stuff.”) Nevertheless, later in the day, something will annoy you. Be patient, dignified and noble like the royal you are.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional. On the whole, things will go easily but later in the day you might feel annoyed with someone, especially a family member or something to do with your home. Anger will only ruin your day.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Usually, you’re a people pleaser. You like to get along with others. Nevertheless, you have your grumpy moments! Today you might experience one of these, especially later in the day. If you give in to this grumpiness, you will likely regret it.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Relations with groups and friends will be lively and spirited today. Quite likely, an element of competition is present. Friendly competition is fun but sometimes it gets out of hand and becomes anger. Well, that’s no fun plus it causes problems in relationships.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Certain details of your private life might be public today, especially in the eyes of authority figures. This may or may not bother you. However, what might also be public is a little temper tantrum or a dispute with someone.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today because people are touchy! Don’t challenge others and especially, don’t probe deeply into the private affairs of someone because they will bark back!
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Avoid disputes about shared property, inheritances, taxes and debt today. Most of today is relatively easygoing; nevertheless, later in the day you might get tangled up in an argument with someone. But hey, this is peanuts. Don’t get your belly in a rash.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Because the Moon is opposite your sign today, you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Not only that, later in the day, fiery Mars challenges the Moon, which is a sure sign that difficulties with partners and friends might be unpleasant. Be patient.
