Moon Alert

After 12:45 PM EST today, avoid shopping or big decisions. The Moon is in Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Tread carefully today, especially around home and family because this is an explosive day. Small appliances might break down; minor breakages could occur. Family arguments are likely. You get the picture. Mum's the word to help restore peace in the realm.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is an accident-prone day so be careful. Pay attention to everything you say and do. Arguments and outbursts will be par for the course. Your only choice is to practice patience and tolerance with absolutely everyone, especially anyone to whom you have given birth.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Keep an eye on your money and cash flow today. You might find money; you might lose money. Something you own might be broken, lost or stolen because unpredictable events will impact your cash and assets. Forewarned is forearmed.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Arguments with friends, and possibly parents and bosses, might erupt today. You need this like a fish needs a bicycle. You are ambitious and want to get your way; however, others block you right now. The more you fight, the more you will help the opposition grow against you.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a restless day. Travel plans, in fact, any plan you might've had will be stalled in the water. Just grin and bear it because you are along for a rocky ride. Don't be pushy with others at work because it won't get you anywhere. Let it be.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Quarrels during meetings or disputes about funding or shared property might take place today. A female might be difficult to deal with because tempers are frayed and people are emotionally volatile. Take a deep breath and smile.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is bad day to ask for permission or approval from anyone in a position of authority. People are accident-prone and also prone to argue. Therefore, give any dicey situation a wide berth. Don't go looking for trouble - no doubt, it will find you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today is ripe for arguments and accidents. But you can avoid them by being patient and mindful. "When you can snatch the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave, Grasshopper." Expect interruptions and challenges at work.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Parents should be vigilant because this is an accident-prone day for your kids or children in your care. Remove hazards. Be mindful of everything going on around you. Arguments about shared property and debt might also occur. Go gently.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be extra patient with others today, because the Moon is opposite your sign, and at odds with Pluto and Uranus. This means people are accident-prone and they are also ready to fight. Bad combo. Be cool. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Something will disrupt your work scene today. Computer crashes, staff shortages, cancelled meetings, as well as conflict between coworkers will be par for the course. Think before you act and speak. This is an accident-prone time for you, as well. Yikes!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Romance is tenuous today. Lovers can quarrel or quickly snap. Be vigilant about children to avoid accidents. Similarly, be vigilant about your own cash and possessions because all kinds of unpredictable detours might trip you up. Make sure you know what you're doing.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Economist/Nobel laureate/author Paul Krugman (1953) shares your birthday today. You are vibrant and emotionally alive. In fact, sometimes you're not sure which direction to take first. People are enthused to be in your presence because you have an enormous zest for life. This year your success lies with others. People will benefit you. Therefore, make friends and join clubs and organizations. Help others because you will also be helping yourself.
