ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 8:30 a.m. today, we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The Full Moon in Leo peaks at 10:38 p.m.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Because today is the Full moon it is stressful dealing with others, especially in groups. Likewise, itís stressful with your own kids. Don’t make a big deal about things. Zip thy lip and demonstrate grace under pressure. You don’t always have a short fuse.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You might feel pulled between the demands of home and family versus the demands of your external world and career. You’re caught in the middle. Because so much is happening in terms of career, you cannot ignore this. Just cope as best you can.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is an accident-prone day because of the Full Moon energy. Accidents don’t have to happen. More likely, they happen because you’re distracted or emotionally upset. Therefore, if you can keep your cool and focus on what you’re doing, you’re home-free.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Financial matters are stressful today because of the Full Moon. The resources of others are not available, or the posse is after you and you can’t answer your phone. Just hang in there because the stress of the Full Moon is gone in 48 hours.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place today, creating tension between you and partners and close friends. Factoid. Knowing this, you can make the extra effort to be gracious, charming, patient and tolerant.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Today’s Full Moon creates tension at work with co-workers, bosses and customers. In other words, everyone feels it. It might even stress your health today. Don’t get your belly in a rash. Once the Full Moon peaks tonight, these problems and obstacles will diminish.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Romance is stressed today and so are social occasions, playful times with children and the arts, parties, movies and sports. That’s because of the Full Moon today. And it ain’t over till the fat lady sings, which happens to be late at night. Hang in there.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Some Full Moons are more stressful than others, and unfortunately this is a stressful Full Moon for your sign. Difficulties with parents and authority figures are likely. Family demands take you away from your career. Well, right now you can’t ignore family and that’s the truth.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): This is an accident-prone day because of the Full Moon. Most accidents can be avoided by maintaining your concentration and paying attention to what you say and do. Therefore, minimize distractions and guard against knee-jerk reactions.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Something about today’s Full Moon will stress your pocketbook. You might feel worried about your job, your cash flow, or the fact that your bank balance is zip. However, once this Full Moon peaks tonight, your problems will diminish. Hang in there.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Today the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place, which is why you feel tension with partners and close friends. Every Full Moon is an opposition between the Sun and the Moon, and that’s why you are part of the formula!
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): It seems like you can feel the energy of today’s Full Moon bubbling beneath the surface of everything. It makes you feel vaguely uncomfortable. It might even exacerbate health issues.
