ARIES (March 21 to April 19): The Full Moon today could create problems when dealing with groups as well as dealing with a friend. The thing is, you can't keep everyone happy. You have to make a choice.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20): The demands of home and family versus the demands of your career and your reputation are at odds today. With this particular Full Moon, you cannot ignore home and family.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20): Pay attention to everything you say and do, because the Full Moon energy today can create an accident-prone situation. All you have to do is be mindful and aware.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22): Disputes about money, responsibilities and possessions might arise because of the Full Moon today. Just remember, they say that possession is 9/10 of the law.

LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22): Today the Sun is in your sign opposite the Full Moon in Aquarius. This creates tension between you and partners and close friends. Use your Leo charm to skate through this day.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22): Don't push your luck at work today, because people might not be forthcoming or helpful. Don't blame them. It's just the Full Moon energy today.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22): Parents will have to be patient with their kids today because of the Full Moon. Likewise, romantic partners have to be patient with each other.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): Despite the demands of home and family, today you cannot ignore the demands of your career and your public reputation. A boss might be watching you.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21): Avoid arguments about politics, religion and racial issues today, because the Full Moon energy heightens people's emotions. Step back and take it easy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19): This is a poor day for disputes about who is responsible for what. It's also a poor day to figure out how to divide or share something. Wait until tomorrow.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18): Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place. This is why you feel restless and a bit over the top. Relax; it's gone in 48 hours.

PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20): At work today, try to do your own thing and make few demands on others. People can be touchy during the Full Moon and tend to take things personally. Cut people some slack.

BORN TODAY: You are an optimist who is easygoing but always observant. You have high standards for yourself. Congratulations, because this is your time of harvest. Now you will begin to reap the benefits of your efforts of the past decade. This is why you will enjoy an increased influence and leadership in your relationships. You deserve this time of success.
