MOON ALERT We have the all clear to do business and make important decisions. The moon is in Capricorn. ARIES (March 21-April 19) This is a gentle warning. Do what you can to avoid squabbles with authority figures: parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police. These power struggles will easily erupt — perhaps even with partners and close friends. Patience is your best friend. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues because they will be contentious. Furthermore, discussions about higher education, travel, medicine, the law, publishing and the media might also trigger arguments. Don’t even go there. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) This is not a good day to discuss how to divide something, or share an inheritance, or deal with shared property because people will easily fall into power struggles and arguments. These same power struggles can hurt romantic relationships and even your relations with your kids. Stay chill. CANCER (June 21-July 22) This is a dicey day. The moon is opposite your sign lined up with Pluto and at odds with fiery Mars. This could be why you feel a verbal slap in the face from someone. Perhaps you expected something light, but instead they are roaring at you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Arguments and power struggles related to your job might arise, but if you avoid these and postpone these discussions until Monday none of this will happen. Just take note: It’s impossible try to get your way; therefore, back off graciously. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Parents must be patient with their kids. Those of you involved with sports must also be patient to avoid arguments and accidents. That’s because power struggles and emotional arguments can easily take place now. Try not to be involved. Just step aside for your own welfare and peace of mind. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Family squabbles are likely because people feel they have an emotional stake in something. You might feel challenged and want to strike back or defend yourself. Don’t try to make over anyone else, and of course, you will be offended if others try to do this to you. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Be diplomatic in your dealings with others, especially neighbours and siblings. I say this because people are touchy! Some people are just looking for a fight. Forewarned is forearmed. Demonstrate grace under pressure. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) Ego battles about something you own or your money might arise. Money is always such a sensitive subject for everyone. This is a poor day to try to win an argument or convince others to agree with you. Just be patient. Wait until Monday to get your way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Don’t overreact, especially talking to authority figures, because you will regret it later. Remember the wise advice: If you act with discipline, you’ll have no regrets. Therefore, if you do something, and you don’t regret it — you acted with discipline. And if you don’t do something and you don’t regret it — you acted with discipline. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) You might not be happy with how things turn out or how someone treats you. That’s just fine. The way to handle this is not to respond yet, but to wait until tomorrow or Monday because things will be so much better for you then. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) Squabbles with friends or members of groups might arise if you push things. Furthermore, if you push things, you will only increase resistance against you. Your only choice is to step back and allow some breathing room into the situation. Go gently. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY TV host Craig Ferguson (1962) shares your birthday. You are intense about whatever you do and you speak your mind bluntly. You play your cards close to your chest, but have great zeal for your projects. You are private but honest. You love the arts. This year you can build your life through association with others. Make friends and join clubs because your success will lie with others. Help people.
