ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear today to do business and make important decisions until 2:30 p.m. The Moon is in Cancer.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Today is a mixed bag. Early in the day, you’re at odds with someone, especially in a group, perhaps over shared property or something someone else owns. Or maybe it’s a conflict of values.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid conflict with bosses and authority figures midday because they will not go well. Their response will be “Buzz off” or “Talk to the hand.” However, late in the day, you seem to get endorsement from authority figures.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today, travel plans and anything to do with higher education, publishing, the media, medicine and the law are discouraging. Life is full of obstacles. Then suddenly, the gates open.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Initially you might be disappointed in your fair share of something today. Discussions about taxes, debt, inheritances or insurance matters look dim and disappointing. Hang in there.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Initially today, conversations with partners are discouraging, a real bummer. Don’t let this get you down because by evening, relations with others turn out to be positive and joyful.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your initial attempt to get something done at work will meet with obstacles today, especially from authority figures. (This influence might also apply to your health.) But by evening, others are ready to endorse what you want. Most curious.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Romance is in the toilet today and children might feel like an increased responsibility, all of which makes you feel world-weary. But lo! What candle in yonder window burns? Suddenly, life is a party.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Today it’s difficult dealing with older family members, especially parents. Cooperation is impossible; in fact, all you get is criticism and reasons you can’t do something.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Today is a struggle. You feel discouraged by others and slapped down no matter where you turn. However, don’t give up because something makes you feel unusually happy and optimistic by tonight.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Financial matters look grim today. No question. Someone might refuse you practical help or you feel you’ve lost out on something. “I’m broke!” But by nightfall, your finances look quite different.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’re coming on like gangbusters with the Sun, Mercury and Mars in your sign and this could be why you encounter such opposition today. Yes, it’s a bummer the way others oppose you. Fortunately, as the day wears on, things change and by tonight, you’re laughing.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A feeling of general malaise permeates your day today because you feel helpless or shut out from something. Don’t be discouraged because by tonight, you’re giggling with pleasure. Suddenly, a renewed optimism completely lifts your spirits.
IF JANUARY 25 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Singer Etta James (1938-2012) shares your birthday today. Your high ideals and strong beliefs make others admire you. Many of you are extremely talented. You approach life bravely with a survival-of-the-fittest attitude. People always find you interesting, and you’re a natural storyteller. In the year ahead a major change will take place, perhaps something as significant as what might have occurred around 2004.
