Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 4 a.m. until 7:30 a.m. Chicago time today. After that the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Try to do something different today. Shake it up a little when it comes to your routine. This is because you secretly want adventure and a chance to learn something new. It has to be stimulating and, if you’re lucky, a mind opener. Take a good look at the world around you.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’re never casual about money; and today is no exception. This is a good day for family discussions about financial support, sharing expenses, and even sharing responsibilities. In many ways, a family is a business, and it needs to work.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Because the Moon today is in a sign that is opposite your sign (Sagittarius), you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others today. It’s no biggie, really. Just be prepared to listen, be agreeable and be accommodating. And listen, and listen.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might work today; you might relax. Whatever the case, it will please you the most if you set aside some time to get better organized and take care of loose details about sundry matters that will make your life easier if you attend to them.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A lovely Sunday for Leos! This is the perfect day to enjoy sports events, picnics, barbecues, parties, social occasions, the arts, a movie, the theater, playful activities with children and, most especially, a romantic liaison. It’s a playful, fun-loving day!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might want to cocoon at home today. That’s OK. You might want to entertain at home. Whether you look at old family photographs, or reminisce about the past, this will be a pleasant day. A conversation with a female relative is likely.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a day that might be busy with short trips, visits, reading, writing and chatting to others. It’s that kinda day. You are mentally alert, and yet, also ready to go with your hunches. It’s a great day to socialize, especially with female friends as well as groups.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today, an excellent moneymaking idea might occur to you. If not, it’s floating somewhere near your head. Perhaps, because your sign is associated with magnets, you can attract ways to boost your good name among your peers. It’s a cinch.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

O to be in England now that July is here — yes, you’ll travel any month. Today is a good day to dream about your next trip because it has to happen sometime. Where will you go? What new big ideas do you want to explore? What kind of school courses appeal?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If you can treat yourself to a laid-back Sunday today, by all means, do it. You might work behind the scenes with others to raise money or settle property that is used or owned by others. It’s your choice.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a lovely day for you because you enjoy your friends, and today is the perfect day to enjoy friendships with others, especially female friends and contacts. Share your ideas with them, and also share your hopes and dreams for the future to see what they say.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Once again, for some reason you are in the public eye, ever so briefly, because details about your personal life are public. Like, what’s with that? Well, it happens to all of us for about 48 hours each month. Your turn is almost over.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Kevin Spacey (1959) shares your birthday today. You are influential because you are intelligent and full of original ideas. People are impressed with what you know and create. This is the year you have been waiting for. It’s a time of expansion and great activity. Take advantage of opportunities. A major change might take place, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2006. It’s time to try your wings!
