ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: Until 1:15 p.m., we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The Moon is in Capricorn until 11:15 a.m.

Actor Christian Slater (1969) shares your birthday. You value the knowledge gained through experience. You work hard to manifest your personal vision of life. Although you can appear socially flamboyant at times, you are serious and philosophical. You function well as a leader and see challenges as an opportunity for success. This year, a major change might take place, perhaps as significant as whatever occurred around 2004.

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep in mind this is a fun-loving, playful time for you. The arts, sports events, movies, the theater, romantic flirtations and great times with kids are tops on your menu. So don’t let your anger get the better of you. It’s just a brief, dark cloud on your horizon.

◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Although your focus is on home, family and your private life, something might stir your ire, putting you at odds with someone, especially a neighbor, siblings or relative. Don’t make a big deal about things. Consider this an opportunity to practice patience.

◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is a busy time for you because of short trips, talking to lots of people, doing errands plus reading and writing more than usual. “I’m on the go!” Enjoy this accelerated pace and refrain from arguments about possessions and money. (Who cares?) I mean, really.

◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): You’ll have to go more than halfway when dealing with others because the Moon is opposite your sign. It’s that simple. Not only that, Mars is in your sign making you feisty and aggressive, which is why you might be lippy with someone. Be kind. Life is short (and fat).

◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): This is your birthday month. You’re eager to be out there flying your colors, talking to everyone. Nevertheless, you might have a mild argument with someone about whether or not things are being done efficiently (or in a healthy way). Lighten up.

◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): This is a playful, flirtatious day. However, parents might be impatient with their kids. Well, that goes with the territory, doesn’t it? But if you can demonstrate grace under pressure, everyone will be happier, including you. Enjoy these good times.

◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Part of you wants to cocoon at home and lie low. If your need for relaxation is interrupted, you could be grouchy. Hmmm, a grouchy Libra. Not good. Avoid arguments that might be based on your own aggression or ambition. Just let things be.

◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might get into a disagreement with someone, especially a sibling, neighbor or relative, just because you’re impatient or being too pushy. Possibly somebody else is being too pushy. The solution is not an argument. The solution is tolerance. (Of course, good food and drink always help.)

◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Financial disputes might arise or arguments about possessions or shared property. Try not to let this ruin your holiday because on the whole, this is a fun-loving, easygoing day where you can enjoy travel and discussing profound ideas with interesting people.

◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You feel strongly about something. If you stick to your guns, this could lead to an argument with someone who is close to you. Is this wise? When the annals of history are written, does any of this really matter? And is there any of that Black Forest cake left?

◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Squabbles might arise for those who are working or even those busy with tasks. Try to avoid this. And remember that you need more sleep now because the Sun is far away from you. Just go with the flow and enjoy learning something new.

◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Parents must be patient with kids. Factoid. Remember, your kids are learning not from what you say but from how you act. You are their role model. Similarly, romantic partners might have a falling-out. Fortunately, this is fleeting. Enjoy your day.
