ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions all day today until 7 p.m. After that the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your ambition is super-aroused today. You’re in a black-and-white frame of mind with a do-or-die attitude. (Yikes!) Obviously, if there’s something you really have to get done, you’ll do it. But be careful of how many toes you’re stepping on because those feet will remember.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today because people will be fanatical. There’s an almost maniacal, egotistical energy loose in the world today that makes everyone go the whole nine yards, whatever they’re doing. Lighten up!
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a poor day to debate shared property, inheritances, insurance matters or anything that needs to be divided. People will be at each other’s throats and you might get caught in the midst of the fray.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’re gonna have to be nice today. But today, intense power struggles with partners and close friends are staring you in the face. Don’t even go there. Don’t get involved. It won’t be a pretty picture.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Although the astrological influences are tough for some today, you can use them to an enormous advantage. When it comes to work and getting things done — you are ìstrrrong like bull.î You will literally plow through heavy-duty work and get stuff done.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you work with children (or personally as a parent) remember to be gentle with kids today because power struggles will erupt. Remember, you’re not the kid. (Surprisingly easy to forget.) Romantic arguments could also be brutal. Go gently.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Although domestic disputes and arguments are likely today, this same energy can be used to push furniture around from one end of the house to the other. You have tremendous drive now and you want to make improvements to where you live. But be polite.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might blow others away because your communicating style will be so forceful today. Factoid. Both Mars and Pluto are lined up in the part of your chart that governs how you speak, think and write.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): When it comes to earning money, you might be ruthless today. Nothing and no one will stop you. Ironically, when it comes to spending money, you might be equally as ruthless. It looks like you’re on your own.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have enormous drive and energy today, which will allow you to complete any task at hand. You have endurance, focus and surprising strength. Be careful about overpowering others. Use this energy to get work done, not to overwhelm others.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Secret love affairs and clandestine situations might be taking place today for some of you. (Spooky.) However, the best way to use today’s energy is to be dauntless in researching something. You will find whatever you’re looking for because you won’t give up.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You’ll be inclined to be rather pushy dealing with others in group situations today (small get-togethers, classes or large conferences). If pushy is what it takes, you’ve got it solved. But if pushy is off-putting to others, you might want to rethink your approach.
IF NOVEMBER 27 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Guitarist Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) shares your birthday today. You are devoted to your projects. Furthermore, you are a perfectionist. Nevertheless, you are quick thinking, impulsive and above all, intuitive. You easily can generate excitement in those around you because you are constantly on the go. Family is important to you. Good news: Your year ahead might be one of the most powerful years of your life. Dream big!
