Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 4 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Aries into Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today has some of the same challenges as yesterday, especially when dealing with parents, bosses, teachers, the police and any authority figure in your life. It’s a fast-moving day and you are fascinated by everything! Ka-boom!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a fast-paced day, especially with respect to travel. Conversations with others will be stimulating because new ideas are coming at a mile a minute, which, actually, is kinda slow, isn’t it? At least, for ideas. You will meet someone today who is different or unusual.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Stay in touch with your bank account and agreements you have with others about shared property because something might change fast today. Stay on your toes to be on top of things. On the other hand, you might come up with a whole new approach to sharing something with someone.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Conversations with partners and close friends will be busy, upbeat and scattered today. Stay flexible so that you can go with the flow. If you remain rigid or stuck in your ideas, then things will get difficult. Remember, in a hurricane, the rigid trees are the first to snap.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your work routine will be interrupted today. Something unexpected might also impact your health because a fast-paced energy surrounds you today, which can also make you feel disoriented. You don’t like surprises unless you plan them. Keep things light so you can go with the flow.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your involvement with children might be hectic today. In fact, all social occasions — romance, sports events, the arts, movies, the theater — will be fast-paced and full of little detours. Parents should be vigilant about their kids because unexpected variables might encourage accidents.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Things are happening fast at home today whether it’s conversations with family members or just the general hubbub all around you. The holiday season always brings its own insanity, especially to your home. This is the part that becomes a survival course. Sheesh!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your routine will change today, for sure. But this is not a boring day because your mind is pumped with ideas and you’re full of energy. Your challenge is to keep it going in one direction because today, life is like herding cats. Good luck!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Keep an eye your money scene today because it’s unpredictable. You might find money; you might lose money. Something you own might get broken, lost or stolen. Or you might discover something you lost before. “OMG! That’s my earring!”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your mind is so full of ideas today you might feel overwhelmed or confused. Just cope as best you can because everyone feels this high-charged energy today. Take extra precautions with everything to avoid accidents or unintended detours. (“Who are these kids and why are they calling me Mommy?”)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

In one way, this is a fast-paced, fun day. Your mind is brimming with ideas and you’re eager to talk to others. However, unexpected detours and events might overwhelm you. Pay attention to everything you say and do to avoid accidents — verbal and physical.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Keep an eye on your money today because anything could happen. Guard against impulse spending. Also be careful about snap decisions you make with friends or groups, which might ultimately cost you money. Think for a minute..
