ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 8:30 a.m. today, avoid shopping or making important decisions for the rest of the day. It’s a goofy day! The Full Moon peaks in Cancer at 4:21 a.m. today.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today you may feel torn between the demands of career and your external world vs. the demands of home and family. You’re caught in the middle and you can’t keep everyone happy. What to do? Actually, today you cannot ignore your career and outer world.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): This is definitely an accident-prone day for your sign. Therefore, slow down and take it easy. Pay attention to everything you say and do. You don’t have to have an accident but if you are hasty, distracted, angry or upset, this ruins your concentration and awareness.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You might feel a bit confused about how to juggle finances today, especially between your own money and earnings vs. your responsibility to somebody else, whether it’s shared property or debt that you owe.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): The Full Moon today makes you question whether you should put your own wants and needs first vs. the wants and needs of your partner or close friend. Well, that’s your call. But if you put the needs of others before your own you’ll feel better anyhow.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): If difficulties arise today related to your work — or even your health — remind yourself that your choice is simple: You are either part of the problem or part of the solution. As a natural leader, you see the advantage of being part of the solution.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Romance is in the toilet today. Don’t expect too much from others because you’ll only create disappointment for yourself. Parents will also feel tension with children. Don’t take this personally — it’s a Full Moon day.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Although you feel pulled to career matters or something going on in your external world, you cannot ignore home and family issues today. Yes, there is a dilemma, but right now home and family come first. You won’t regret this.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you. This doesn’t mean dangerous little spores in the air will make you have an accident. It means that you are more likely to be distracted or emotionally upset and in turn create an accident.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Money concerns are definitely distracting. (Like for example — where IS the money?) But today is not the way to resolve these issues. The Full Moon clouds clarity about everything regarding your cash flow right now. Just bide your time.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You definitely feel tension or stiffness with partners and close friends today. That’s because the Full Moon opposes you. But this is a very fleeting matter and it happens only once a year. Consider this an opportunity to demonstrate grace under pressure.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Sometimes vague feelings are hard to identify and this is one of those days, simply because the Full moon is taking place in a hidden part of your chart. Don’t worry about this. It’s not contagious. In fact, by nightfall, you’ll feel much better.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This is not an ideal day to negotiate with others, especially in group situations. Even friends might grapple with you and oppose your ideas. People are prickly today because of the Full Moon — that’s all. By this evening, everything will be emotionally softer. (Just mutterings.)
IF DECEMBER 28 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Denzel Washington (1954) shares your birthday today. You exude confidence. Others respect you because you convey an image of reliability, strength and trust. No one doubts you are hard-working and serious. You always appear self-assured, which makes others hesitate to challenge you. In the year ahead, you will begin a fresh new cycle. There are many choices available to you, which means you can open any door!
