ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the “all clear” today to do business and make important decisions until 10:15 p.m. The Moon is in Leo.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be careful because this is an accident-prone day. Sudden upsets and knee-jerk reactions could get you in trouble. (You know who you are.) The thing is, by nature, you have a fast fuse and you react quickly. Today, it’s easy to react without thinking at all. (Gulp.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Avoid dangerous areas or accident-prone situations. Similarly, avoid places that are murky, hidden or where you might feel ill at ease or too inexperienced. Don’t put yourself at a disadvantage because today is full of unexpected events. Watch your back.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A friend in a group might surprise you today or you might find yourself suddenly at odds with someone. (“I’m not left-handed either!”) Think before you speak if someone confronts you because you don’t want to end up with egg on your face. (If this happens, ketchup helps.)
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Do not let your aroused ambition get you in trouble today. Think of that saying, “Don’t get too big for your britches.” And do not wake the sleeping dragon! You might do something that angers your boss or someone in a position of authority. (Run away! Run away!)
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Travel plans might be delayed, cancelled or rescheduled today. School-related schedules might also change. Surprises related to publishing, the media, medicine and the law are also likely because today is full of upsets and unexpected events. Be on guard!
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Make friends with your bank account so that you know what’s happening. Upsets that are financial or related to shared property, taxes and debt are likely today. These surprises could be positive or negative — hard to say. (That’s why they are surprising.)
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your desire to assert yourself in a relationship — or possibly, someone else’s desire to do the same thing — could create problems. Either of you might rebel against expectations of the partnership or friendship. “Enuff awreddy!” Be patient and vigilant.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Work-related accidents might occur, related to electricity, iron, steel, sharp instruments or tools. Pay attention to whatever you say and do. (This is not a minor warning.) Computer crashes, power outages and staff shortages are also likely. Oy vey.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Parent should be extra-vigilant today because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Definitely remove children from hazardous or accident-prone situations. Assume nothing. Keep your eyes peeled and know where your kids are at all times. This is a rocky day for romance as well.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. Naturally, with all this happening, domestic arguments can erupt. Slow down and take it easy. Take 11 breaths. Count them. This will separate what went before from what is about to happen.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is definitely an accident-prone day for your sign. Impulsive behavior or rash comments could get you in hot water. Think before you speak. Be extra-careful walking, jogging and driving. The good news is you might dream up some genius-like ideas.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You might find money; you might lose money. Something you own might be stolen, broken or suddenly found if it was lost. In other words, it’s a crapshoot. Primarily, this unpredictable situation will apply to your finances and whatever you own.
If MARCH 22 is Your Birthday: Author James B. Patterson (1947) shares your birthday today. You’re enthusiastic about many things, yet you have a quiet self-assurance. You don’t care about pretending to be anything that you are not. You are not easily led astray because you know what you want to achieve. Once you find your true path you pursue it with zeal. Work hard to build or construct something in the year ahead because your rewards will soon follow.
