MOON ALERT Not until 12:30 p.m. do we have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. At that time, the moon moves from Virgo into Libra. ARIES (March 21-April 19) You feel financially strapped for different reasons. Just cope as best you can. You are not alone. We number millions but we don’t have jackets. A powerful time awaits you in two years. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might feel lonely or cut off from others. It’s like there’s a gulf between you and someone close to you. It’s just what’s happening because this is a stressful weekend. By Monday everything will fall in place again. Courage. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Feelings of loneliness and insecurity might be an underlying current for you. It’s nothing personal. A lot of people feel this way. Just cope as best you can and do something you enjoy doing. Do an act of kindness for someone. (You’ll feel better.) CANCER (June 21-July 22) Someone older or more experienced might oppose your ideas. They might criticize your suggestions or future goals to the point that you feel diminished. Don’t take this personally. It’s just the vibes in the air. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) If you have to deal with authority figures — parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police — it won’t be easy. Ideally, you might want to skirt these issues and postpone them for Tuesday or Thursday. (Thursday is an amazing day.) VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Avoid controversial issues, especially topics like religion and politics. Someone might be overbearing, dogmatic and a real know-it-all. Just keep things light. Avoid heavy-duty people and serious topics. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) This is a poor day to discuss how to share or divide anything. People feel mean-spirited and stingy. (We’re talking the opposite of friendly and generous.) Therefore, why do business or discuss negotiations and responsibilities on a day like today? SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Conversations with partners and close friends will be aloof and cool, and by cool, I mean distant, not hip. Don’t take things personally. People have issues they’re dealing with, or stuff just bottled up inside. Be tolerant and understanding. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) This is a tough day at work because bosses, supervisors and people in authority are inclined to refuse you or just say, “Talk to the hand.” You will meet with obstacles and difficulties, but this is nothing you cannot handle. And next week is so much better. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Children might feel like an increased responsibility. Well, that goes with the territory. Children are a responsibility just like we were a responsibility to our caregivers when we were young. But who cares? You don’t want to hear this. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Family issues are stern and serious. In fact, conversations with a parent might be difficult and stilted. Indeed, this is a tough weekend for many. It seems to be all about duty and obligation instead of lighthearted fun. (Wanna play musical chairs?) PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You might fall into worry mode because things seem a bit grim. When I was 12 years old, I wrote a sign and put it on my bedroom door: “Worry is like a rocking chair. It gives you something to do but gets you nowhere.” (Imagine: 12 years old and so worried.) Makes me worried to think about it. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY Actor/dancer Fred Astaire (18991987) shared your birthday. You are active, bold and daring. Although you can work with others, you also work superbly on your own. If you teach, you teach by example. This is a year of growth for you and it is also a testing year. Many of you will build or construct something that you will later value. Postpone major changes this year. Not just yet.
