Moon Alert

After 5:30 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” today to do business. The Full Moon in Virgo peaks at 12:20 p.m.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today’s Full Moon could create problems in the morning at work. It might also increase stress to your health. After it peaks midday, many of these problems will disappear or at least, diminish. Yes, an improvement.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Romantic partners might freak out because of today’s Full Moon. Likewise, parents might have their hands full dealing with kids because everyone feels today’s Full Moon energy. (What it does is, it heightens your emotions.) Yikes.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today the Full Moon puts you between home and family vs. your career, public reputation or job. And there you are, caught in the middle. You cannot choose both. Hint: This time you can’t ignore your reputation.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Do be careful because there are two Full Moons each year that are accident-prone for you, and today is one of them. (The other one will be six months from now.) Therefore, think before you speak or act. Be thoughtful and prudent.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Money issues will come to a head today because of the Full Moon energy. If so, they will be resolved by this afternoon. This might have to do with shared responsibilities, shared property or who owes what or who owns what. All that high-finance stuff.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is occurring. It’s not common! This is why you might feel a strong emotional reaction when dealing with partners and close friends. But hey — they are feeling emotional, too. Your best option is to chill out.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a tough way to start your week because in the morning, the Full Moon is slowly getting ready to peak, and this will create stress not only with your health but also with your job and your co-workers. Cooperation will be difficult. Fortunately, by the afternoon, a lot of things will subside and become workable. (Whew!)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Difficulties with friends or members of groups are likely this morning. However, these same difficulties will dissipate or possibly disappear after the Full Moon peaks midday. Be patient with lovers, friends and even your kids. The afternoon today will be better than the morning.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today’s Full Moon places you in a tug-of-war between your personal life and your professional life. You cannot please both these worlds. This particular Full Moon indicates that you cannot ignore home and family, despite your interaction with bosses and VIPs. Good luck.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is an accident-prone day for your sign so pay attention to everything you say and do. Today’s Full Moon energy, especially in the morning, could cause you to be distracted, which in turn could lead to a mishap. Stay on target.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Keep an eye on your money and cash flow because the energy of the Full Moon this morning could cause you to be distracted, which in turn could make you vulnerable in a financial way. You might overlook something or make an error or a poor judgment. Stay calm.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today the only Full Moon that is directly opposite your sign all year is taking place. This is why you feel pressured when dealing with friends and partners. There’s all that energy flying around! Fortunately, the tension of this past weekend will subside by this afternoon.
