Moon Alert

After 5:30 a.m. Chicago time today, we have the “all clear” today to do business. The Moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a great day for flirtations and tender, romantic interludes. In fact, your feelings of affection for others are so strong, you will also be sympathetic to those who are less fortunate. This is why you will be generous to others.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Relations with partners and close friends are warm and gentle today. Even your relations with members of the general public will be mutually supportive and agreeable. Continue to work hard but enjoy your popularity with others.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You are sensitive to the needs of co-workers today. You get what others are going through. You might inquire about the welfare of someone because you sense things and you care. You are even sensitive to the needs of your boss or supervisor. Hmmm.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Ooo la la! Zees is a day for loff! Romantic relationships will bloom because you feel so warm and tender to others, especially romantic partners. However, you will feel equally warm and tender to children and their needs. Because your imagination is heightened today, the arts will appeal.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’ll enjoy redecorating today. For the next few weeks, you will be keen to tweak your digs and make them more beautiful. This is not surprising because Leos are house proud; their home is their castle! Real estate deals will go well. Ka-ching!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Writers and those in sales, marketing, teaching and acting will flourish today. You can make money from your words because you are skilled with your communications at this time. Your words sweet and articulate, and your imagination is heightened. Creative combo!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a favorable day for business and finance. In addition, you will enjoy spending money on beautiful things — jewelry, wardrobe treasures and attractive things for your home or a family member. Libra is the sign of fashion and beauty. You especially love fine linens and fabrics.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today Fair Venus is in your sign lined up with the Moon, also in your sign, which gives you a lovely, balanced outlook on life. This also heightens your appreciation of beauty, which is why you will have an emotional response to beauty around you. Naturally, this is a great day for romance!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Solitude in beautiful surroundings will appeal to you today, which is why you might want to escape from the hectic busy-ness of your everyday world. With the Sun in your sign, you attract others to you now, and Mars makes you aggressive with others. You need a rest! Run away!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a lovely day to schmooze with others. Make plans to meet friends for lunch or coffee. Make an effort to attend meetings, clubs and conferences because all your relationships with others will be friendly and gentle. People want to socialize today — and so do you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Some of you might develop a crush on your boss or someone in a position of authority (someone older, richer or more established). Admittedly, you might develop a crush on someone who is completely beyond your reach. But you never know. Today, in fact, others notice you more than usual.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Travel for pleasure appeals to you today, which is why lucky Pisceans will escape somewhere delightful. Do something to shake up your day. Go someplace different for lunch. Talk to unusual people. Explore the world around you, especially beautiful places. Do yourself this favor.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Jennifer Carpenter (1979) shares your birthday today. You are highly individualistic. This is why you sometimes find it tough to do fit in. This is also why you are drawn to characters. This year others will benefit you, which is why your success lies with interacting with other people. Therefore, make friends and join clubs and organizations. If you help others, you will also be helping yourself.
