ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: We have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 9:15 p.m. The Moon is in Aries.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Be patient with family members because arguments and power struggles are likely, and they will quickly turn nasty. Don’t even go there. Don’t try to get your own way. Lighten up and let things be to keep the peace.
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Ego battles with others can arise. Don’t try to persuade others to agree with you because you will only increase their resistance. People are ruthless and relentless in their attempt to gain control of situations. Just step aside.
◆GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20): Power struggles about something you own or money and cash flow might be difficult. On the upside, you might see transformative ways to earn money or use something you own. Just don’t be pushy with others and don’t get in a cat fight.
◆CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22): You’re keen to make improvements. But your ideas might drive others crazy. This is a classic day for severe power struggles with others, so maybe you should pick another day to change your world? Best to relax with some iced tea or a pitcher of sangria.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You have a personal agenda and you know how you get when you’re like this. Hot tip: This is a poor day to be pushy about your wants and wishes. You can’t control other people and you won’t let them control you. Just keep your head down and your powder dry.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It will be challenging dealing with groups today — like herding cats. Everyone has their own idea and nobody wants to listen. Look for win/win solutions. If you’re in any kind of group where it looks like things could get violent — run away, run away!
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Clashes with authority figures are par for the course. Do not ask for approval or permission. Wait for another day. And do not wake the sleeping giant. (You’ll regret it.) People will act impulsively just to exercise their muscles and throw their weight around.
◆SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21): Be careful because this is an accident-prone day. People are short-tempered, impatient and pushy. Accidents don’t have to happen but they happen when people are emotionally upset or distracted. Avoid controversial subjects.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Disagreements about shared property, debt, loans, inheritances and insurance matters might arise. Try to avoid these and just postpone these discussions for another day. It’s tough to get the cooperation of others.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Tiptoe around today because people are on pins and needles. If someone is annoyed, they’re just waiting for an excuse to blow up. Don’t give them that excuse. Meanwhile, patience and tolerance will get you through this day — plus a long, cool drink.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Although you’re keen to introduce reforms at work, can you get the cooperation of others? Probably not. People are opinionated today. And pushy! Obviously, this is not the day to make any suggestions or introduce your ideas. Timing is everything.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Parents must be patient with children because hissy fits and meltdowns are likely. You’ll witness this with adults as well! Just be kind and patient because “easy-going” is the way to tackle today. Postpone your big ideas for another day.
If JULY 27 is Your Birthday: Bold female explorer Jeanne Bare (Baret) (1740-1807) shares your birthday. You are forceful, decisive and powerfully organized. You know how to run any organization. This is why others turn to you for answers and decision-making. You like to plan ahead and you know how to get the best out of others. At times you are intimidating; nevertheless, people respect you. Work hard to build or construct something this year and your rewards will soon follow.
