MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions all day. The moon is in Leo. ARIES (March 21-April 19) This is a poor day for discussions about politics, religion or racial issues, or practically anything, for that matter. Confusion is rampant. Deceit is possible and things can go to hell in a handbasket in 20 seconds. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Do not make important financial decisions, especially about shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt or anything you own jointly with others. Things are not quite what they seem. You might not have all the facts. Or they might be erroneous. Or someone could be lying to you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Relationships with partners and close friends might suffer because one or both parties feel inadequate, distrusting and insecure. That’s because people are easily discouraged and not willing to reach out or go more than halfway. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Don’t beat yourself up if you feel too tired to work or accomplish whatever tasks you wish to do. Fuzzy Neptune is blocking the energy of the sun, which creates a funny idealism but also creates confusion and lethargy. Oy vey. So much work, so little time. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You might be disappointed in a romantic partner. There’s a good chance this disappointment is because of unexpressed expectations. Others cannot read your mind, and if you are not clear about what you expect, it’s pointless to blame them, isn’t it? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Postpone important family discussions for another day because your conversations will be listless, circular and anti-productive. Someone might cry wolf. Someone might cry crocodile tears. People might be honest, or not. Just move on. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You might spend a lot of time daydreaming on soaring flights of fancy. Pursuits that offer mental escapism will appeal. Definitely a good day to read fiction and drift off into nevernever land. Don’t be discouraged when talking to siblings and relatives. It’s just what is. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) This is a poor day to make important financial decisions. For starters, you could be the victim of a deception or you might not have all the facts. You might also have pie-in-the-sky thinking and base your decisions upon what you wish would be the case as opposed to reality. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might feel tired or discouraged. Your energy level is lower than usual. That’s why this is the perfect time to take the day off and take it easy. Even your self-confidence seems to be low. (Like, what’s with that?) This is par for this day. No worries. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) This is the kind of day where people might say something that confirms your worst fears, especially about a fault you think you have. (“Oh no. Everyone knows.”) Capricorns are perfectionists. Lighten up. This is an imperfect world full of imperfect people eating fast food with trans fats. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) When dealing with others, especially in a group situation, if you think something fishy is going on, it is. People are definitely not straight shooters. Au contraire. They are hiding the truth or playing fast and loose with it. Be careful. Trust your gut instincts and make important decisions tomorrow. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Conversations with authority figures — parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police — are not to be trusted. Therefore, avoid these if you can because all conversations are rife with confusion and misunderstandings. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY Actor/writer/director/comedian Stephen Merchant (1974) shares your birthday. You are energetic and physical in your approach to life. You’re quick to defend your point of view and you never shy away from a fight. You are lively and fun-loving and yet you seek solitude. Family and friends know you are loyal. A major change will take place this year, perhaps as significant as something that occurred around 2004.
