ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 6:20 a.m. until 10 a.m today. After that the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): There is a confused element loose today. Whatever you try to do, you can only give it half your energy. It’s a bit like walking in quicksand. (Yikes.) Don’t worry, this influence will pass quickly.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your efforts to deal with others in group situations might be perplexing. In one moment, you’re gung ho, enthusiastic and ready to rally the troops. Then in the next moment, you feel tired and it’s all too much bother.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Despite your eagerness to accomplish something today, it’s hard to throw yourself behind your intentions. Whether due to fatigue, wariness or doubt, you feel unsure about something.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You feel uncertain about plans related to publishing, higher education, travel and perhaps legal or medical matters as well. These are areas you were recently very enthusiastic about but today, you’re not sure.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a poor day to make important decisions about inheritances, shared property, debt, taxes or anything you own jointly with others. Basically, your inner confidence is shaky when it comes to these matters.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): When it comes to partnerships and close friendships you’re not sure if you should act or do nothing. You feel caught in between a rock and a hard place. Actually, it’s more subtle than that; you’re just not sure what you should do.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): “It was Monday. It was Monday all day.” Yes, it’s one of those Mondays when you just don’t seem to have the get-up-and-go to do everything that you wish you could. Just settle for whatever you do get done. Don’t push the river.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You feel unusually sympathetic to the needs of children today, which is why you will respond quickly to help kids or younger people if you can. However, be careful with romantic situations because things might be more confused than they appear.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Domestic issues are confusing today. In one way, you want to help a family member, if possible, especially someone in need. And yet, you might second-guess yourself and doubt your course of action.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Be mindful of everything you say to others today because not only might you be stretching a few details for them, you could also be kidding yourself. Actually, this is also going on all around you.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a poor day for important financial decisions because you might talk yourself into spending money on something and then later regret it. Furthermore, you might not have all the facts or things might look better than they really are.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): No matter what you do today, it’s hard to put all of yourself into whatever you’re doing. You can’t get fully behind a project. This could be because you feel low-energy or because you’re not ready to endorse something. It’s OK to sit on the fence.
IF FEBRUARY 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Activist Rosa Parks (1913-2005), who refused to move to the back of a segregationist bus, shares your birthday. You are lively, dynamic and very entertaining to others. You’re also very brave and daring. You like to do things your own way because you have a strong streak of independence. You have abundant energy and will fight for your beliefs. You often do things in a unique way.
