ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 2:30 until 4 p.m. After that the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.
◆ ARIES (March 21-April 19): Hopefully, you accomplished as much as possible in the last two days because today that wonderful energetic focus seems to be slipping out of the picture. Don’t be hard on yourself. It’s just what it is.
◆ TAURUS (April 20-May 20): After successfully steering the efforts of others to hopefully coincide with your own, today you have to let go. Be careful about money matters because things are not completely clear.
◆ GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Today the Moon eventually moves into your sign but even then, clarity seems to elude you. Don’t worry because many feel this way today. Keep a watchful eye on your money and your possessions and don’t fall for anything that looks too good to be true.
◆ CANCER (June 21-July 22): You might feel vaguely restless and uncertain. Or you might find yourself second-guessing yourself. This is all minor stuff, really. Just accept whatever help is offered to you, which is quite likely.
◆ LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Relations with others, especially females, might be confusing today. Make no assumptions. Spell everything out clearly so that you know what is expected of you and vice versa.
◆ VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Go gently today because misunderstandings with others, especially female authority figures, are very likely. Furthermore, whatever you do seems to be high viz. today so these misunderstandings could be public. Go carefully; go slowly.
◆ LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is not an ideal day to make travel plans because you are indecisive. First one thing appeals, then another. Or perhaps you set off in one direction and find you cannot continue. This same wishy-washy approach could apply to studying something.
◆ SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful if you are discussing inheritances, shared property and such because it’s easy to be confused today. Furthermore, it’s easy to be reluctant to stand up for yourself.
◆ SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Although you’re eager to get things done and are still going at a busy pace, confusion with partners and close friends is likely today. This will only create havoc.
◆ CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Your focus on money, cash flow and possessions continues. However, today, whether at work or in any task you attempt, something is confusing. This confusion could even extend to your health. Fortunately, these are minor matters.
◆ AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Romantic confusion is par for the course today, which is why romantic partners might be at odds with each other or feeling misunderstood. Parents should be extra patient with children as well.
◆ PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Relations with family members are a tad challenging today primarily because people can easily make wrong assumptions. Don’t second-guess others. Ask what they want and expect of you. In turn, tell others what you expect of them.
IF FEBRUARY 17 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Basketball player Michael Jordan (1963) shares your birthday today. You are resilient and strong, yet this is often a mask for a very sensitive interior. You often feel you need to have your defenses up against the world. You are affectionate and ready to defend not only yourself, but also family members and loved ones. You embrace your beliefs fervently. Grab every opportunity to learn something in the year ahead because it will help you in 2014.
