MOON ALERT After 4:45 a.m., we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The moon is in Libra.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Intense encounters with family members, especially someone who is powerful, might blow you away. Yikes! The only way to handle this energy is to be alert and be patient. Don't get carried away. No drama queens allowed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Arguments with others might arise because one of you is coming on too strong with their ideas. Avoid controversial subjects. You don't have to convince others to agree with you. Act like you have nothing to gain and be mellow.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Conflict about possessions, cash flow or money might arise. Or something you own might break down or need to be repaired. It's as if some things are coming to a head and everything has reached its maximum point of exhaustion.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Intense encounters with others might be unpleasant, but they could reveal a truth to you or make you understand something you haven't seen before. This is also a time, for some, when a relationship will end. Don't try to prove anything. Just let things unfold.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Something secretive or behind the scenes troubles you. Your first impulse is to fix it. But some things cannot be easily fixed. And if this applies to a person, they might not want to be fixed! Granted, there is an influence today that makes one want to make over someone else.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Power struggles with someone, especially in a group, will likely occur. But these struggles are simply an indication that there is no agreement. Why not wait a few days because all the energy surrounding this situation will be less intense and more mellow.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This is a poor day to encounter anyone in authority because their response might overwhelm you. Do not wake the sleeping giant. Postpone this discussion for another day. Don't ask for permission or approval. As someone's grandfather used to say, "Never miss a good chance to shut up."
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
People will easily argue about controversial issues because they feel that there is something personal at stake. And they want to convince you of the wisdom of their point of view. (If you cannot avoid this involvement, start slow and taper off.)
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Arguments about shared property, inheritances, insurance matters or anything that you own jointly with others might arise. Disagreements about who is responsible for what are also likely. Remember that courtesy goes a long way to maintain mutual respect.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Intense discussions with partners and close friends might take place. Someone might want to air their grievances by believing it will clear the air. But will it? Generally it stirs up further bad feelings. If you win all your arguments you end up with no friends.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Breakdowns at work with equipment or machinery are likely. This is also the kind of day where someone might suddenly quit or throw in the towel. Avoid these power struggles, even if you see a better way of doing something. If you suggest your reforms, others will oppose you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Parents and people working with children must be patient with them because after all, you are the adult, right? It takes years to cultivate patience, which is surely a maturity. And patience, in most cases, embraces compassion. (Did you know the origin of the word scruples means "to hesitate"?)
Tennis player/broadcaster Pam Shriver (1962) shares your birthday. You are naturally generous and giving. This is because you are a caring nurturer. You value your roots and you value family. You honour your commitments; and are skilled at sensing other people's situations. This year something you've been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new to enter your world.
