ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 6:30 a.m. today, we have the “all clear” to shop (whether you spend $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Taurus.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t let squabbles about money and shared property ruin things today. And if you do get into trouble with someone, be aware of the fact that this is a brief dark cloud passing on your horizon.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Today the Moon is in your sign, which tends to make you a bit more emotional than usual. In the middle of the day, at some point you will be irritated or disappointed with a friend or partner. But it’s important to know that this is relatively brief.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You might feel silently annoyed with someone today. Or you might feel cut off from others, unloved and unappreciated. Before you waste too much time pouting, you might want to think about how much you are contributing to this isolated feeling. Are you part of the formula?
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Difficulties with friends, co-workers and anyone in a meeting or group situation will be challenging for you today. Quite likely, the challenge will come from a female. Nevertheless, it’s a brief moment.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Relations with authority figures are strained today. You might feel put on the spot or that you have to reveal details about your private life in a way that makes you feel embarrassed or set apart. This is a brief moment.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You might be disappointed about travel plans or something to do with publishing and higher schooling. Perhaps your expectations are squelched. But this is probably small potatoes. (French fries, really.) Don’t let this get you down.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You might be disappointed in your share of something or worse, you might feel you’re getting the short end of the stick. Very discouraging, indeed. Don’t make a big fuss about things because this challenge is short-lived today, and you can actually make improvements and positive changes at home.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Difficulties with partners are likely due to misunderstandings. You feel left out in the cold because communications are stiff and alienated. (“Take me to your leader.”) Don’t make a big deal about anything. Within hours, your focus will be elsewhere. Trust me.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Because you feel temporarily dejected or discouraged, your efficiency will suffer today. It might even affect your health in a minor but brief way. Be aware that this negative influence lasts only a matter of hours. Be patient with others.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Children might feel like an increased responsibility today. In addition, romance is in the toilet. But these negative qualities are very brief, actually. In fact, this can be quite a productive day if you want to make improvements in your daily surroundings.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Discussions with parents and family members might leave you cold today. You feel misunderstood or dismissed. Actually, it’s not a big deal. It’s more of a misunderstanding. Two ships passing in the night. Keep the faith. Donít take criticisms to heart.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You might feel disillusioned about ideological subjects like politics, religion or a new culture that you thought was attractive. Perhaps you got too close to the magic? Whatever the case, your feelings of disillusionment will be temporary.
IF NOVEMBER 25 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Singer Tina Turner (1939) shares your birthday today. You work hard for your success. One might even say you create it. You work well with others, but you also love your solitude. You have high standards for yourself and others and are always very thorough in everything you do. You have strong ethics that you live by. In the year ahead, your life will become more social and relationships will pleasantly flourish.
