Avoid shopping or important decisions from 8 PM to 11 PM EST today (5 PM to 8 PM PST). After that, the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Because you want something very much today, (perhaps related to travel, publishing, the media or something to do with medicine, the law and higher education) -you’re prepared to fight for what you want even if you have to stand up to bosses, parents, professors and VIPs. Fist in the air!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You are blessed today. You might receive gifts, favours or help from others. Knowing this, you can also ask for help because it will be forthcoming. However, avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues because these will quickly get out of hand. Definitely!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
It’s easy to schmooze with others today, which is why you will enjoy the company of partners and close friends. However, disputes about shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances and insurance issues might arise. If they do, they will get nasty because people will insist on standing their ground.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Welcome the support of coworkers today. You’ll find it easy to work with others, in addition to which, you yourself, might get praise or even a raise. Meanwhile, difficulties with partners and close friends might arise because of a difference of views. It was ever thus.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Romance is passionate today! The stuff of movies. You want to play and socialize! However, something related to your job or even your health might create obstacles because someone is determined to persuade you to their way of thinking. Tread carefully.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a marvellous day to entertain at home. Invite friends and family over for good food and drink. You might also want to do something to redecorate or make your home look more attractive. Be patient with children to avoid arguments.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You will enjoy your surroundings today, which is a blessing for you because you are affected by your surroundings – smells, lighting, colour and composition. (Not many people understand this, but you do.) Avoid family arguments today because they might occur. Steer clear!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Do not try to convince others to agree with you about something today, which, incidentally, you will be tempted to do. Or you might attract someone to you who wants you to agree with them? Instead, focus on moneymaking ideas and shopping for beautiful things. (Check the Moon Alert above.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Disputes about money and possessions are likely today. But is this conflict worth it? Fortunately, Venus is in your sign making you diplomatic and charming with everyone. Go with what wins. Everyone hates arguments and dissension.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Today Mercury and Pluto are lined up in your sign, which means all your communications with others will be intense. You might want to influence others to agree with you. You might also encounter opposition from others. Don’t go looking for trouble. In fat, enjoy privacy in beautiful surroundings.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your ability to research today is phenomenal! You’ll be like a dog with a bone. You won’t stop until you find what you’re looking for because you are focused, even ruthless. Meanwhile, relations with friends and groups are warm and supportive.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You look wonderful in the eyes of others today, which is why bosses, parents and VIPs are so impressed! Don’t ruin this advantage by having an argument with a friend or a member of a group. Don’t take the bait! Let everyone enjoy their own beliefs – even if you don’t agree.
