Moon Alert

We have the All Clear today to shop and make important decisions. The Moon is in Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

As the old saying goes, it takes two to make a fight. (And it also takes two to make love.) Disputes and conflicts could arise because you're determined to make your point or get your way. (Moi?) Don't be pushy today. It won't be pretty.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You're very determined today about something to do with finances, how you earn your money or something related to your possessions. You insist on having your way. However, do not reach out too far. Best to secure what you already have. If you feel threatened in any way -- enlist the help of others.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Yikes! It seems that whatever you do today to make improvements around you, or gently transform things for the better - just meets with opposition from others. What gives? Have they no couth? If your opposition is 'couthless', then give up. If it's toothless - then persevere.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Some kind of internal struggle could be taking place within you now. You're very keen to introduce some improvements into your life, especially improvements that favourably affect your health. The only problem is old habit patterns keep grabbing you by the throat. Aagghh. It ain't easy.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You're a natural leader. Nevertheless, if you try too hard today to take control of others or gain control of a situation -- you could end up with a egg on your face. (Just to be safe -- carry a small bottle of ketchup at all times. It helps the egg go down.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Power struggles with authority figures are inevitable today. Your ambition is relentless. Nevertheless, if others oppose you -- their opposition will be equally relentless. The more you push, the more they push back. Don't just push ahead blindly. Take stock of the situation. (You might have to run away to fight another day.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Try to avoid debates and arguments about racial issues, travel plans, politics, religion and anything to do with publishing, the media, medicine or the law (this covers a pretty broad range.) Everyone is highly opinionated, including you. Remember: you can't reason others out of ideas they were never reasoned into.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a poor day to fight for or try to conclude arrangements about shared property, debt, mortgages and the like. There's simply too much opposition to what you want to do. You don't have to swim upstream. Postpone these issues till another day.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is the classic day for serious opposition with others, especially partners and close friends. Either you're coming on to them too strong -- or they are coming on to you! Anger serves no purpose except to make everyone miserable. Don't leave home without your sense of humour.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You've got energy to burn today. You're determined to introduce reforms or improvements at work. You might succeed; however, others might not agree with your ideas. If you meet with opposition, postpone things until next week when everything will be easier. (Easier is nice.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Parents should be patient with children today. Power struggles can easily erupt. Just remember: never raise your hand to a child, it exposes your midriff. Also remember that children can have tough days just like you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Even though you're determined to make improvements at home or where you live or even within your family structure, it seems that obstacles are in the way today. Don't push ahead blindly with determination. Be skillful. Pull back if the timing is wrong.

If Your Birthday Is Today

You will have to make a major decision or choice this year. Choose wisely.
