ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Don’t go looking for trouble today because it will find you! Be aware of the restrictions of the moon alert (see above). Meanwhile, think before you speak to avoid an ego battle with an authority figure today. Not good. (Never forget the power of courtesy.)
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Remind yourself to be polite and co-operative with others at work today. Similarly, if you’re talking to others about a pet, be patient. Likewise, anything to do with your health might provoke some nasty comments. Stay chill. (Check moon alert.)
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Do your best to have a low-key, pleasant day at home, even though power struggles with kids might erupt. Likewise, difficulties with romantic partners could be nasty. Try to avoid this by keeping a low profile. Don’t get involved!
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Family arguments might arise today because people are so opinionated! However, what is really happening is a power struggle. Don’t waste your energy on this. Difficulties with partners, parents and bosses can be tough today. Meanwhile, there’s a moon alert. (See above.) Yikes!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
Avoid arguments with others today because this can happen easily. It might start with an insistence on getting to the bottom of something. Someone is sure of the truth. However, this will lead to a contest about who is right. You don’t need this! Stay mellow and be aware of the moon alert.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
With the sun in your sign for one more day, you are still empowered. Nevertheless, squabbles about money or possessions are likely today. If possible, don’t even go there. You have been wrestling with debates about shared property for some time. (Check moon alert.)
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Take it easy. Mercury is in your sign today and it is at odds with big daddy Pluto. This might make you want to force your point of view on others, especially because you are obsessed with a particular idea today. Note: Why not use this focused energy to study? Smart choice.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
When you want to, you have enormous concentration. Today is one of those days. Use your focused mind to do research or look for answers to questions or solutions to old problems. Don’t be pushy with your point of view. Tread softly.
● SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
The sun is still high in your chart, which makes people admire you. Nevertheless, you might find yourself at odds with others today, especially someone younger. Everyone has their own opinion! Don’t make a big deal about anything. Keep things light.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Steer clear of arguments with bosses and parents, teachers and the police because they will become nasty. It’s easy for people to become obsessed today and lose their perspective. They can’t see the forest for the trees. (Be aware of the restrictions of the moon alert.) Be sharp.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Definitely avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues today because they will get out of hand. They might become violent. People are obsessed with their ideas today, which means giving these touchy topics a wide berth. Avoid arguments. Practise patience.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Today you might have intense discussions about shared property, inheritances, insurance disputes or anything to do with the wealth of your partner. Actually, this is a bad day to dispute anything because people are blinded by their own point of view. Stay mellow.
