MOON ALERT After 4:15 a.m. we have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Sagittarius. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Don’t fall for sales pitches for snake oil or questionable cult presentations. If you meet someone persuasive standing on a soapbox expanding their views, you might fall for what they say. Maintain a healthy skepticism and sense of reality. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) This is a poor day to agree to financial matters or anything to do with shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and insurance. You might not have all the facts. Someone might deceive you or confuse you. Things are not as they appear. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Conversations with others, especially partners and close friends, will be like two ships passing in the night. Be aware of this and don’t agree to anything important. Don’t overreact to anything that someone says. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Confusion related to your work or your health is likely. You might also feel dispirited, sad or confused. It’s easy to deceive yourself and it’s also easy to run away from anything you don’t want to deal with or anyone you don’t want to see. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Don’t get your belly in a rash if romantic relationships seem to be on the skids, or worse, you hear something that makes you doubt your partner. All kinds of confusion are prevalent. Parents should be vigilant with children, especially related to poison, drugs and chemicals. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Cut others some slack because misunderstandings are far too easy. It’s easy to jump the gun and think you know something, when in fact, your facts are incorrect or you’re just wrong. However, people can be deceitful. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Don’t listen to gossip that is work related. Similarly, be skeptical about information related to your health or your job because an element of confusion and outright deception is strong and pervasive. People want to escape their worries and have fun. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Be very careful shopping (see moon alert above), and for that matter, be careful about all decisions related to cash flow and money because this is a day that is ripe for confusion and deception. If you are handling money, count your change and keep your receipts. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) The moon is in your sign at odds with fuzzy Neptune. This increases confusion in relationships and everyday conversations. It also increases self deception and your ability to kid yourself. Escapist tendencies will be strong. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) The day is filled with confusion, deception and lies. With all this smoke and mirrors going on, naturally, some secrets will also be revealed. Let’s hope they’re not about you because you value your good reputation. Tread carefully. Be discreet and be tight-lipped. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) A female acquaintance might confuse you or you might simply be confused by what she says. If you think something fishy is going on, it probably is. Keep your antennas sharp. Refrain from gossip and rumours. Don’t be quick to believe something that sounds far-fetched or is harmful to someone. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) It’s easy to misunderstand your boss, parent or someone in authority, and vice versa, it’s easy for them to misunderstand you. Because of all this confusion back and forth, obviously, this is a poor day for important discussions. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY Actress Drew Barrymore (1975) shares your birthday.
