ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 6:30 a.m., we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Sagittarius.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Discussions about politics, religion and profound subjects might confuse you today. Perhaps you are taking an unrealistic view? Be careful about falling under the sway of a hypnotic speaker or teacher who might really be out to lunch because it’s easy to be conned today. (A little warning,)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You might be confused by a friend today, or some kind of a meeting or group situation could leave you confused. In fact, someone might try to deceive you. Either way, don’t modify your goals today. Wait until you are on solid ground.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Conversations with partners and close friends might be like two ships passing in the night. People are in a dreamy state of mind and are probably communicating poorly. Take everything with a grain of salt and perhaps a pinch of parsley.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Issues are confusing at work today so be very careful if you’re making important decisions. If you have a funny feeling that something is fishy, it probably is. Plans about education, travel, legal matters and medicine are particularly fuzzy.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your idealism about children might confuse you today. Leos love children, but perhaps your thoughts aren’t grounded in reality just now — hard to say. Romance is particularly susceptible to confusion and starry-eyed expectations.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Anything to do with home, family and domestic issues might be confusing today. Your views about something could be distorted or you might have some childhood memories that are cloaking the facts. Do not trust everything at face value today.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Quite likely, you will spend a lot of time daydreaming or being lost in fantasy because that’s what today is all about. The Moon and mysterious Neptune are dancing together creating a sort of fog in your mind. (Let’s hope you’re not performing brain surgery.)
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Be extra clear with all financial matters today because deception, confusion and carelessness could cost you money. If shopping, count your change. Save your receipts. Be careful about talking yourself into an extravagant purchase.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You’re full of all kinds of emotions today that run the gamut from idealism and religious faith to distrust and suspicion. Basically, you are mildly out of touch with reality — very mildly — nothing to worry about but be aware of this.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Frankly, you’re in a bit of a dreamy state today. Recognize this and be careful if you’re doing work that requires detail and concentration because you are a bit off your game. However, you will enjoy quiet solitude if you get a chance to steal away somewhere.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): When you’re dealing with friends today, if you think someone is feeding you a line, be suspicious. In turn, you have to be suspicious of your own faulty judgment. (Keep that in mind.) It’s a poor day for group decisions.
◆PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20): Be extra clear in all your communications with bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs because confused communications — either way — are highly likely today. If you are aware of this ahead of time, you are slightly protected. Therefore, scrutinize your own ideas as well as those of others.
If April 27 is Your Birthday: Singer Kate Pierson (1948) shares your birthday today. You prefer running things from behind the scenes. (It’s more your style.) You want to be useful and you want to get things done. You are giving and hard-working but you also protect your privacy. One of your strengths is that you know your limitations. You’re a realist. Your year ahead is the beginning of fresh new cycle. Open any door!
