ALL SIGNS MOON ALERT: After 7 a.m. today, we have the “all clear” to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The Moon is in Gemini.
IF APRIL 3 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY : Actor David Hyde Pierce (1959) shares your birthday today. You are brave, courageous and yet, unassuming in a good-natured way. You understand human nature and know how to work with others; but you can be blunt. You are involved and at the center of things. This year, a change might take place, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2005. It’s time to expand or promote yourself by trying your wings!

◆ARIES (March 21-April 19): You might be obsessed about something today; and this obsession could relate to an authority figure or your desire to improve something. While a strong focus can be effective, obsessed thinking often shuts out helpful input. (Kinda dumb.)
◆TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You have strong feelings about something today, perhaps secretly. You might not mention this to anyone but you’re thinking about something or wondering if it is possible. Or perhaps you fear something might happen? Whether you have hope or fear — your future will unfold anyway.
◆GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Disagreements with others might occur today. Alternatively, you might encounter someone who is powerful. In fact, this person might be so powerful they could cause you to rethink your goals for the future. Might be helpful.
◆CANCER (June 21-July 22): Tread carefully in discussions with authority figures today because a power struggle is likely. This struggle might begin because each party is entrenched in their views and not open to compromise. (Do you know what it’s like to walk a mile in someone else’s wedgies?)
◆LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today. It is easy to get entangled in discussions with others in an overwhelming way. If you sense this might be the case — run away! People are not tolerant today and compromise is almost impossible.
◆VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Disputes about shared property, shared responsibilities, differing values, inheritances, insurance matters and taxes might occur today. They won’t be casual; they will be intense. Don’t get your belly in a rash. Be cool and avoid saying anything you will later regret.
◆LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This is the classic day for quarrels with partners and close friends. It could be because someone wants to make the other one over or improve them. (This generally goes over like a lead balloon.) If you want to improve someone — I suggest you flip this impulse and apply it to yourself.
◆SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You have ideas about how to improve your job or introduce reforms at work. The issue, of course, is will others agree with you? You are generally more successful speaking to a group rather than just one individual.
◆SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Romantic arguments can occur today because people are passionate and opinionated. A dangerous combo. However, this is also the classic day for difficulties with children. Be gentle and flexible because you’re the adult, remember? Act mature; be a role model.
◆CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Arguments with parents and authority figures in the family might take place today. However, it takes two to make an argument, doesn’t it? Perhaps you can avoid nastiness by sidestepping these issues. When the annals of history are written, will any of this really matter?
◆AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You need patience today to do almost anything. (Gulp.) Think twice before you speak or act because it’s easy to come on too heavy, demanding your own way. Ego battles and power struggles are likely. Note: Yelling doesn’t make people hear you better.
◆PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Power struggles about money and finances are likely today. Meanwhile, some of you might be obsessed about buying something. “I have to have it!” Actually, this is a poor day for reasonable, calm discussions about cash flow, money and earnings. Just chill out.
