MOON ALERT: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from noon until 7 p.m. today. After that the moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces. ARIES (March 21-April 19) At some point today, you will be tempted to argue with a friend, probably a female. Forewarned is forearmed! You don’t need to do this. Because you have this warning, you can observe yourself and pull in your reins a little. Courtesy impresses everyone. Always. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You might be angered by someone in a position of authority, especially a female at some point today. There is nothing to be gained by blowing your fuse. In fact, more than any other sign, you know this. Think of your long-term objectives. Be polite. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Arguments about travel, publishing, the media and dealing with foreign people or countries might break out today. Fortunately, this negative influence is brief. If you bite your tongue, this will pass and you won’t make a fool of yourself or make an enemy. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Disputes about shared property, taxes, debt, insurance matters or who is responsible for what, might arise LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You might be annoyed with a friend or partner today. Perhaps you cannot control what you feel, but you can control your response. If you respond with anger, you create a situation that everyone remembers. But if you remain polite and let this feeling pass, you’ll have no regrets. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Do what you can to keep the peace at work today (or doing any task). People are irritable and this leads to arguments with others. This won’t promote smooth relations, it will increase antagonism. Therefore, sidestep this moment. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Parents will have to be patient with kids today because it is what it is. For starters, it’s easy to be impatient and irritable with others. Secondly, your kids or someone younger might be feisty in a way that annoys you. Don’t overreact. Be cool. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) A dispute with a female family member might occur because someone needs to let off steam. If you can air your grievances in a positive way, then do so. But if this is just an expression of anger, what will it gain you? Just more anger. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You might feel discouraged with yourself today. Or you might feel others are attacking you. (Don’t you love that?) Basically, you feel vulnerable and hence, defensive. Nevertheless, do not react. Just be cool because this is a temporary dark cloud on your horizon. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Disputes about money or possessions might break out today, especially with a female. It’s important to know that this is a very brief window of time so you don’t get involved. If you can avert it — the moment will come and pass by and you will escape this nastiness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Today the moon is in your sign challenged by Mars. This makes you self-confident and inclined to act too quickly. You might even be over-critical of others or hasty. At worst, it can make you accident-prone. Ideally, you should slow down and chill out. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) There is no point in getting into a needless dispute with someone today just because either you or this other person is feeling highly emotional or irritable. Look for ways to let off some steam without causing harm. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY Actor Oliver Hudson (1976) shares your birthday. You are determined, diligent and persevering. Because of this you often have success late in life. You are goal oriented and never give up on your dreams. This might be one of the most powerful years of your life. It is a time of accumulation and a good year to buy and sell. It’s a time of fruition in business and finances.
