Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 4:45 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Chicago time today. After that the Moon moves Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a poor day for money decisions or decisions related to shared property and debt. It’s also a poor day to spend money on children, the arts, the entertainment world and vacations. You will feel better if you save your money today, not spend it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today the Moon is still in your sign; however, it is stressed by its position to Saturn and Venus. This makes relations with family members a bit strained. In fact, it feels like life is just hard today. But hey – by Monday, you’re laughing! Just hang in there.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your confidence is low and you feel low energy. Yes, it’s Saturday but you are best served by staying home. For starters, relations with others, especially siblings and relatives, are strained. Secondly, you don’t have much energy. Therefore, pamper yourself and relax.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Relations with others, especially females, might be strained today. You might be unhappy about a financial issue or a particular possession. Perhaps someone won’t return something they owe you? Or they’re making life difficult for you at work. Yikes.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be careful today because you are a bit high profile. Bosses, parents and VIPs will notice you more than usual and be privy to private information about you. Meanwhile, you’re not too thrilled about this. In fact, relations with a family member who is older might be strained.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Despite the fact that you want to expand your wings today by doing something different or learning something new, circumstances conspire against you. Don’t get your belly in a rash over this. Just cope as best you can. Note: Avoid worry mode, which is a big habit.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Discussions about shared property, shared responsibilities, taxes, debt and red-tape issues like this will not go well today. Knowing this ahead of time, postpone them for another day when things are more favorable for you. The key is to make astrology work for you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Resign yourself to the fact that because the Moon opposes you today, it’s best to cooperate with others. Be patient; be ready to compromise. Nevertheless, avoid major decisions today because things won’t benefit you, not really. Keep a low profile.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are hard-working, party-loving sign. Today however, is one of those Saturdays that miss the mark somewhat. Don’t expect too much from yourself or others. Travel plans are discouraging. Not only that, work is just tough. Woe is me. (Monday looks fantastic.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although you want to play today and have fun, it seems that whatever you do, the wheels come off. Things don’t go your way. People are uptight; in addition to which, you might be worried about getting your fair share of something. Be low key this weekend.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Relations with an older family member might be strained today. In fact, relations with partners and close friends are similarly difficult. For many reasons, life feels just hard today. There’s nothing you can do about this except to accept it and make the best of it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Avoid controversial subjects because they will only bring you down. This is a low-energy day for you plus others are a bit difficult to deal with. Oy vey. This means you should keep a low profile and figure out what you want to do on your own. It’s not a big deal.
