Moon Alert

Not until 4 p.m. do we have the all clear to shop and make important decisions. After that, the Moon moves from Pisces into Aries.

If Your Birthday Is April 16

Actor Jon Cryer (1965) shares your birthday. You are extremely loyal to friends and family. You are also loved by many because you are witty and entertaining, as well as sympathetic and kind. You use laughter to promote understanding and offer release to others. This year is a time of fresh beginnings because you are starting an exciting nine-year cycle. Open any door!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful because most of today is a loosey-goosey, as you can see by the Moon Alert. This is a good time for creative activities, however, when it comes to spending money — only buy food, gas, movie tickets and stuff. Nothing major.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a great day to schmooze with friends, in a casual, easygoing way. Unfortunately, it’s a poor day to make important decisions or agree to anything important. At least, not until later in the afternoon.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

For most of, your discussions with authority figures will be circular and nonproductive. However, you might kick some ideas around and creatively foster something. After 4 p.m., you have the go ahead to make serious plans.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you have dreams about what you want to achieve in the future. That’s just fine. Think about these ideas because by late in the afternoon, you can act on them, especially travel plans or long-range plans about future education or training.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For most of, you will love to learn something new and explore more of your world in a gentle, easygoing way. You have an urge to push your boundaries a bit so that you can grab more out of life. Great! Later in the afternoon, the energy changes and you will get back to work.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Postpone important decisions about shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and such until the Moon Alert is over. Do yourself this favor. In fact, after the Moon Alert is over, discussions with partners and close friends will be practical and productive.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You feel a bit at loose ends for a good part of today because of the Moon Alert. The key is to avoid important decisions and major purchases because either they will have to be changed or you will regret them. After the Moon Alert is over, you will be productive!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Stick to business as usual and be leery of any bright new ideas. Nevertheless, because you’re in a creative frame of mind, write these ideas down or take note of them because they will be worth serious consideration later in the afternoon.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a creative, playful day for you. In one way, your mind is all over the map, but in another way, this allows you to have original, genius-like ideas or an entirely new take on things. This could be helpful. By late afternoon, you’ll know what ideas are worth keeping.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’ll enjoy relaxing at home and hanging out with family this morning if you can swing this. But by late in the day, suddenly, you will kick into action and be busy! Errands, discussions with siblings and mental work will make demands on your time. You can count on this.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Definitely avoid shopping or making important financial decisions during today’s Moon Alert because you will be tempted to do this. However, once the Moon Alert is over, you will suddenly kick into gear with a fast-paced rhythm and start to help with daily tasks and errands.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a willy-nilly day for a good part of the day, and you will feel it. You might feel mentally at loose ends or indecisive. But after the Moon Alert is over, you will want to tackle financial matters and oversee cash flow issues etc.
