ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 11 a.m., we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Gemini.
◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Tread carefully at home today. Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. Domestic arguments might break out because people are on pins and needles. They feel restless, impatient and defiant of authority. Look out world!
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Pay attention to everything you say and do because this is an accident-prone day for you. Be careful jogging, walking, talking and driving because you might have a knee-jerk impulse that overtakes you. (Who wants to do or say anything you later regret?)
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Watch your money. You might find money, you might lose money. Watch your possessions and guard them against loss or theft. Make friends with your bank account so you know what’s happening. If shopping, keep your receipts and count your change.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Power struggles with others are likely. You don’t want anyone telling you what to do and, likewise, keep in mind that others don’t want to be told what to do either. If you have difficulties with a boss or supervisor, don’t quit your day job. Stay chill.
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You might be fuming about something but you can’t speak up. Or perhaps something behind the scenes catches you off-guard in a shocking way? Whatever it is, you’re restless. “In the jungle, the mighty jungle, the lion sleeps tonight.”
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t wait until things are intolerable before you make changes or complain. Today you might feel a situation building up within you that makes you want to explode when talking to others, especially in groups. You can still express yourself, just don’t explode. Be cool.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Relationships with bosses, supervisors, parents, teachers and authority figures are tough. You don’t want to take direction from others. And you might get in trouble for being lippy or rebellious. It’s tough to walk that fine line.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Travel plans will be canceled, delayed or changed. Ditto for plans related to higher education, medicine, the law and anything to do with publishing and the media. Power struggles are also likely. Yikes! You need to run for cover and keep your head low.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Disputes about shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt, insurance matters or anything you own jointly with others might come to a head. Things could get nasty. That’s because power struggles can erupt easily, anywhere. Keep your wits about you.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Discussions with others, especially partners and close friends, will be combative. People feel rebellious and independent. They are also easily angered and given to rash, impulsive actions and words. You’re good at keeping your cool and not saying something you regret later.
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Difficulties with coworkers are likely at work. This could be because of the frustrations of equipment breaking down, computer crashes, power outages or staff shortages. Decide right now if you are going to be part of the problem or part of the solution.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Parents take note: This is an accident-prone time for your kids. Be patient with them because anger can promote accident-prone situations. Romantic partners might also be too impulsive or quick to say things they later regret. Think before you speak. Chill out.
