ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 7:45 a.m. until 2:30 p.m. today. After that the Moon moves from Leo into Virgo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be a bit cautious today because in one way, you feel playful and prankish and this is just fine, you might have some fun. However, conflicts with others, especially in the morning or midday, could arise and that’s no fun.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Be patient with family members this morning, especially female relatives. It’s no fun to start the day, or the week for that matter, with an argument. Play it very low-key and be patient with others because things are not necessarily as they appear today. (Spooky.)
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a poor day for important decisions. Be patient with siblings, relatives and neighbors this morning. In fact, misunderstandings throughout the whole day are very likely because conversations are like two ships passing in the night.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make friends with your bank account and find out what’s happening moneywise. Disputes about money or something you own might arise this morning. Steer clear of this. By evening, further confusion about money or shared property might cloud issues.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The Moon is in your sign today sitting opposite fighting Mars. Therefore, be patient with partners and close friends. By evening, you will see that issues are confused and someone might be deceiving you.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You’re keen to work hard now and get something done. Nevertheless, something behind the scenes could create a problem. First off, practice patience this morning with everyone to avoid a nasty scene. This evening, take nothing for granted and don’t believe everything you hear.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): In some ways, this can be a lighthearted, playful day. Nevertheless, tension with a friend this morning is likely. And this evening you might feel hoodwinked by someone. But it’s basically small potatoes. You can still enjoy your day.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Keep the peace with others this morning because everyone will benefit if you are tolerant and patient. (Mainly you.) Focus on making your home more beautiful or tackling repairs. Confused communications are challenging this evening. Oy vey.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Guard against knee-jerk reactions if you feel irritated with someone this morning, especially siblings, relatives or neighbors. This can be a pleasant day if you avoid important decisions. But this evening, you might feel deceived or conversely, be tempted to lie.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Although your focus is on cash flow and earnings, be careful with money today. Avoid arguments about debt and shared possessions this morning. Not a good day to shop. By evening, you could be deceived about money or perhaps you don’t have the full picture.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Be open to compromise this morning and be patient with others. Today can be a loosey-goosey, fun-loving day for the most part. However, some kind of overindulgence this evening could get you in trouble or blind you to the truth about something.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your efforts to start the day efficiently will be frustrated this morning. Don’t take it out on others. Be patient. This evening someone might be deceitful or evasive because they’re afraid of confrontation or they’re trying to hide something from you. You’ll sense it because you always do.
