Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 1:15 a.m. until noon Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you want to withdraw from the busy-ness of the world around you. Nevertheless, it will help you to talk about your inner feelings to someone because your need to withdraw could be based on self-doubts. We all need a hug every day. Have you had yours?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Emotional contact with others is important today. To put it another way, if you have a warm emotional contact with someone, it will make you feel better. (You might not even know that you need this.) This is also a good day to discuss your goals with someone.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Intimate details about your life seem to be on display today. (Like, what’s with that?) A public argument might be an example. Nevertheless, you have a sensitive, empathetic appreciation for others. This is good.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Feelings of escapism are strong today, which is why you want to get away from all this. If you can’t break free of your routine physically, then you can do so mentally. Maybe you just need to sneak away somewhere and read a book or do a crossword?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be aware of the Moon Alert today if you’re making important decisions about shared property, inheritances and anything you share jointly with others, including debt. You might also attract powerful people to you today. Don’t be overwhelmed; remember, you are the Leo!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Conflict with others will be emotional today because the Moon is directly opposite your sign. Fortunately, you feel sympathetic to others. Nevertheless, watch out for knee-jerk reactions that you might later regret. Confrontations are no fun.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Sometimes you can let things go for a week, but whenever everything is tidy and neat around you, you feel so much better! This applies to your home and your workplace. This is because Librans are affected by their environment: lighting, smells, color, you name it.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Romantic relationships will be emotional today; in fact, they might be intense. Furthermore, you won’t be able to conceal your feelings, even though you are a secretive sign. You also feel nurturing to others today, especially to children.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you can cocoon at home today or seek out solitude in nature, this will please you because you need to do some navel-gazing. With the Sun in your sign now, people are attracted to you, and you want to respond to them. Take time today to regenerate and restore yourself. You need this.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Get out and talk to others today because you have something you want to say, mainly because you have a strong need to communicate right now. That’s why you want nitty-gritty discussions with others, not superficial chitchat about the weather or snow tires.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your focus on your possessions, cash flow or your wealth in general will be strong today, in part, because you identify with what you own. You want to take care of your stuff and feel that you’re in control of what you own. You won’t want to lend anything that you own. “My precious!”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

After the Moon Alert is over today, the Moon is in your sign, which will make you a bit more emotional than usual. This is no biggie. It happens every month for 2 1/2 days. In fact, this can attract good fortune to you. Therefore, ask the universe for a favor.
