Moon Alert

After 4:30 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” to do business. The Moon is in Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you need to be yourself! Romantic relationships will have greater emotional depth and, in addition, relations with females will be improved. Quite likely, you will feel protective and possibly overprotective about children. Easy to do.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If you have a chance to cocoon at home today, you will like this because you feel a need for privacy and an opportunity to relax by yourself in pleasant surroundings. You might begin to see how much your habits of the past control your reactions in your daily world at this time.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You have a strong need to talk to others today. However, you want to have real conversation at a “gut” level. You don’t want superficial chitchat about the weather. Be careful about verbal, knee-jerk reactions instead of thinking before you speak. “Who me?” “Yes, you.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The Moon is no longer in your sign today, which means you feel more in control. In fact, you might identify with your possessions more than usual or you might feel attached to something you own. Instead of spending money, you’re already trying to save it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which can make you more emotional than usual. However, this also tends to make things go your way, which is why this is a good day to ask the universe for a favor. The answer just might be “Yes!” Try it.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today in your chart the Moon is hiding, which is why you will want to do likewise. Seek out ways to work alone or behind the scenes or just cocoon somewhere because this will please you. You will not feel much like socializing.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your emotional contact with others, especially friends and pals, is important to you today. You feel protective towards a friend or supportive to someone. Likewise, you might feel jealous if they pay more attention to someone else.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Personal details about your private life might be public today because the Moon is at high noon in your chart. This tends to put you on display. However, it’s an excellent influence for dealing with authority figures and doing PR work.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

What’s new? You want to travel! You always want to travel! Do whatever you can to break free of your daily routine because you need adventure and discovery today. At least, be a tourist in your own city. Talk to people from other countries and different cultures.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might feel emotionally intense about issues today, especially discussions about shared property, inheritances and your responsibilities to others. You might want something that belongs to someone else. Oh well, what can you do? We all feel like this from time to time.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today the Moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This simply requires a bit of compromise, tolerance and an easygoing attitude. Your focus on partners and close friends will be strong.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Do what you can to get better organized today because this will make you feel good. You need to recover from some of the busyness of the last week. This is a good idea because too many details floating around in your head for too long can be exhausting. When the Sun shineth, make hay.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Gerard Depardieu (1948) shares your birthday today. You have gravitas. People instantly respect you. In turn, you are always devoted and loyal to your friends and community. A major decision awaits you this year. It will be wise to save money in the first half of the year and cut down on overhead expenses in order to be strong later in the year. Be true to yourself.
