Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from noon until 6:30 PM EST today (9 AM to 3:30 PM PST). After that, the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Tread carefully! Discussions with bosses, parents and the police will be intense today. You might come on too strong; they might come on too strong. Could go either way. Remember Voltaire: “Doubt is not a pleasant condition; but certainty is absurd.”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a great day to study something because your mind wants to get to the bottom of something. In other words, your approach to study anything will not be superficial. You won’t skim things lightly. Au contraire! You will dig deep!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you will get to the bottom of something related to shared property, taxes, debt, insurance issues or the wealth of your partner or someone else. You will be relentless until you find what you’re looking for. In fact, you might do a mind meld with someone today.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might encounter someone today who is so intense they’re almost threatening. (Yikes!) This person might be close to you – perhaps a partner or close friend. Be careful not to excite them or make them upset because it won’t be a pretty picture.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

At work today, you might see better ways of doing something, which is why you might suggest improvements or reforms. If so, you could encounter resistance or objections to your ideas? It was ever thus. Good ideas are often met with scorn.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you might be intense about teaching a child or young person something. Be careful because it’s easy for you to become obsessed. Learning is more than just accumulating facts. It’s training the mind to think. Likewise, romantic partners might be obsessed with each other or about an idea. They might also be jealous.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Family discussions might be challenging today because everyone is convinced of their own point of view. On the upside, people will be prepared to dig deep to solve problems and get to the bottom of something that needs repair. On the downside – will they listen to each other?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You’re persuasive today! That makes today a strong day full of opportunities for those of you in sales, marketing, teaching and acting. Likewise, if you write, you will be convincing. However, do not coerce others. (OK! Where do I sign?)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might be obsessed about something related to money, earnings or your possessions today. If shopping, for example you will think you have to have something. Please be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert (see above). Take it easy today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today Mercury is in your sign lined up with Pluto, which indicates intense mental activity on your part! You will have a focused penetrating mind that wants to get to the bottom of everything. You will also be persuasive talking to others.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your ability to do research is phenomenal today! You will not stop until you find what you’re looking for. In fact, you will instinctively see the subtext of everything; and you will know if someone is not telling you the truth.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Discussions with others will be intense and penetrating today. If you are involved in a group, you might try to convince them to agree with your point of view or vice versa, someone might want to convince you. That’s because today it’s easy to be preoccupied with an idea or a particular slant on something.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Golfing champ Tiger Woods(1975) shares your birthday today. You are enthusiastic and passionate about whatever you do. You believe in clearly defined goals and then, working hard to attain them.

The Further Tail of Comet Leonard

Image Credit & Copyright: Daniele Gasparri

Explanation: Comet Leonard, brightest comet of 2021, is at the lower left of these two panels captured on December 29 in dark Atacama desert skies. Heading for its perihelion on January 3 Comet Leonard’s visible tail has grown. Stacked exposures with a wide angle lens (also displayed in a reversed B/W scheme for contrast), trace the complicated ion tail for an amazing 60 degrees, with bright Jupiter shining near the horizon at lower right. Material vaporizing from Comet Leonard’s nucleus, a mass of dust, rock, and ices about 1 kilometer across, has produced the long tail of ionized gas fluorescing in the sunlight. Likely flares on the comet’s nucleus and buffeting by magnetic fields and the solar wind in recent weeks have resulted in the tail’s irregular pinched and twisted appearance. Still days from its closest approach to the Sun, Comet Leonard’s activity should continue. The comet is south of the Solar System’s ecliptic plane as it sweeps through the southern constellation Microscopium.
