ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or major decisions from 10:15 a.m. until 7:15 p.m. EST today. After that the Moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be patient because it’s easy to lose it with others. (Snippy, mouthy stuff.) It’s never worth it because you feel worse afterwards and so do others. This is a free-floating day! You’ll love studying new subjects and meeting people from other cultures.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You’re involved with groups and friends, and perhaps competitively with someone in particular, which could generate some tension. Today is a poor day to make important decisions, especially about shared resources and jointly held property.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be patient with others early this morning. (You’ll be glad you did.) Because we have a Moon Alert all day today, be careful what you suggest to authority figures. Do not commit to anything or volunteer because you will be back-pedaling tomorrow. Oh yeah.
◆Cancer (June 21-July 22): Although this is a creative day at work, it’s not a particularly efficient day. Expect shortages, delays and silly errors. However, your ability to visualize things or dream up solutions will be quite uncanny. Write down your ideas and check them out tomorrow.
◆Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): This is a wonderfully, playful, creative day! Those of you who are working in the arts or dealing with children can easily spread your wings to encompass new ideas and different approaches to things. This is also a great day to party and get cozy. Enjoy!
◆Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You might want to cocoon at home today and indeed, if you have a chance to do so, you’ll love it. (It’s hard out there without your towel.) Family discussions will be lively and all over the map. Avoid important decisions today. Wait until tomorrow.
◆Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is a mildly accident-prone day for you so pay attention to everything you say and do. But it’s a very creative day. In fact, it’s a wonderful day for writers, editors, teachers, actors or anyone who needs to promote their ideas because it’s easy to be original and think outside of the box.
◆Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be careful with all financial matters today. No doubt you’re focused on cash flow, earnings and money. This is a poor day for spending money (except for food) and it’s an equally poor day for important financial decisions. Wait until tomorrow.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You feel a bit like a free-floating helium balloon today. Take a Mental Health day if you can and just goof off or play hooky. Take a long lunch. Enjoy chatting with co-workers, neighbors and siblings. Writers can be particularly inventive.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Play your cards close to your chest because you feel guarded and careful. (And so you should.) Although you have a need to talk to others and enlighten people about things, keep your topic light. Avoid committing to anything or making important decisions.
◆Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A heart-to-heart discussion with a female friend might be a surprisingly candid and refreshing experience today. People are disarmingly honest and certainly receptive to anything you have to say. In turn, you can be a willing and helpful listener.
◆Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Be careful in everything you do today because if you make a mistake or goof up in any way, it will probably be rather public. (Bummer.) When dealing with authority figures, do not be dogmatic. Don’t insist on anything. Be pliable and sit on the fence. Tomorrow is the day for firm decisions.
IF MARCH 5 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Actor Rex Harrison (1908-1990) shares your birthday. You live in two worlds. Outwardly, you appear debonair and sophisticated, even lighthearted. Yet inwardly, you are serious, dramatic and dark. You’re amazingly productive and creative. You live life intensely and never hesitate when you know what you want. In your year ahead, a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as what might have occurred around 2004.
