Chicago Sun-Times - - ENTERTAINM­ENT - GE­OR­GIA NI­COLS

MOON ALERT: Avoid shop­ping or mak­ing im­por­tant de­ci­sions 2:30 to 9 a.m. Chicago time. Af­ter that, the moon moves from Tau­rus into Gem­ini.

IF TO­DAY IS YOUR BIRTH­DAY: Ac­tress, come­di­enne Yvette Ni­cole Brown (1971) shares your birth­day. You are sys­tem­atic, or­ga­nized and like to be in con­trol. This year you will see that ser­vice to oth­ers, es­pe­cially within your fam­ily, is im­por­tant. This is why you must take care of your­self so that you are a strong re­source for your­self and oth­ers. Hang out with qual­ity peo­ple.

Aries (March 21-April 19): You want to ex­plore ideas. Short trips and a chance to meet new peo­ple will please you. Nev­er­the­less, some strong en­ergy is build­ing up in you that could pro­voke prob­lems with par­ents, the po­lice, teach­ers and bosses. (It’s a Mex­i­can stand­off.)

Tau­rus (April 20-May 20): You are the fi­nan­cial wiz­ard of the zo­diac and to­day you’re fo­cused on fi­nan­cial mat­ters —cash flow and earn­ings. You might be tak­ing care of some­thing that you own. Mean­while, you are con­cerned about some­thing but you’re not speak­ing up.

Gem­ini (May 21-June 20): To­day things are in­clined to go your way be­cause the moon is in your sign. How­ever, you might find your­self at odds with a friend or a group. As the day wears on, th­ese dy­nam­ics be­come stronger. Let’s face it, it’s a power strug­gle. Some­times th­ese are just silly.

Can­cer (June 21-July 22): Re­la­tions with par­ents, bosses and VIPs are tough. This could be a power strug­gle or a fierce dis­agree­ment. Or pos­si­bly, it could be an op­por­tu­nity to cre­atively trans­form some­thing and change it for the bet­ter. It’s sur­pris­ing how many peo­ple re­sist change (in­clud­ing you).

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): To­day is clas­sic for con­fronta­tions about pol­i­tics, re­li­gion, med­i­cal is­sues, racial mat­ters or some­thing to do with the law. You have strong opin­ions, es­pe­cially with the sun and Mer­cury in your sign! It’s very hard to change peo­ple’s prej­u­dices.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Dis­putes about in­her­i­tances, in­surance is­sues, gov­ern­ment money or shared prop­erty might come to a head to­day. Peo­ple will have strong feel­ings about th­ese is­sues. Quite likely, what­ever hap­pens will be a bit pub­lic and peo­ple will no­tice you or hear your opin­ions.

Li­bra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Har­mony is im­por­tant to you. (Even though you are a great de­bater.) Cut oth­ers some slack to avoid power strug­gles with part­ners and close friends to­day. What pur­pose will this fric­tion serve? You will only alien­ate some­one close to you. Why do this? There is no ben­e­fit.

Scor­pio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You might feel the need to take a firm stand on some is­sues at work to­day, es­pe­cially if you are try­ing to in­tro­duce im­prove­ments or re­forms. Like­wise, you might have very firm ideas about your health or even a pet to­day. Noth­ing is ca­sual.

Sagit­tar­ius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):

Par­ents might face tough is­sues with their kids to­day, which is why power strug­gles will oc­cur. Try not to let things es­ca­late to this level. Be rea­son­able. Young peo­ple al­ways want im­me­di­ate grat­i­fi­ca­tion. It’s hard for them to see the long haul.

Capri­corn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Fam­ily squab­bles might arise to­day, in part be­cause in­creased chaos and ac­tiv­ity on the home front might be get­ting you down. (A per­son can only take so much.) Fur­ther­more, to­day you want more or­ga­ni­za­tion in your life. State your wants but don’t get caught up in an ego bat­tle.

Aquar­ius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A se­ri­ous con­flict with some­one might arise to­day, in part be­cause your en­ergy level is high and you’re com­ing on like gang­busters. Be care­ful not to guilt trip any­one or use un­der­handed meth­ods be­cause if you do, they will back­fire. Ex­pect op­po­si­tion to what you want.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Dis­agree­ments about some­thing that you own or about a fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion, earn­ings or even your job will arise to­day. This will make things dif­fi­cult. Mean­while, avoid dan­ger­ous places and vi­o­lent peo­ple, be­cause con­flicts with oth­ers are ruth­less.
