Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 1:45 p.m. until 4:45 p.m. Chicago time today. After that the Moon moves from Capricorn into Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Despite the limitations of the Moon Alert today, this is a good day for serious discussions about the future and your life direction with bosses or parents and authority figures. Kick some ideas around but do not finalize anything until tomorrow.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might want to investigate travel ideas or long-range plans connected with publishing, the media, the law, medicine and higher education. You’re in a serious frame of mind today, which will help you study as well as make future projections.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You won’t overlook important details regarding banking, taxes, debt, insurance matters or inheritances today because you’re in the right frame of mind to deal with these things. Nevertheless, be aware of the Moon Alert to avoid signing documents at the wrong time.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the Moon is opposite your sign for a good part of the day. You will feel this opposition increase before tomorrow’s Full Moon. Quite likely, it will create some stress between you and partners and close friends. Just be supportive and mellow. No biggie.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This can be a productive day for you even though you can feel tension building up before tomorrow’s Full Moon. The thing to know is that the Full Moon tomorrow morning is the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year. Patience will be your best ally.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This might be a good day to make plans about future vacations, dealing with summer plans for children and talking to romantic interests about the division of labor or how to share expenses. You can tackle these things – gently. They will be resolved by the weekend.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a good day to have a serious discussion with an older family member; or to sit down by yourself (or with others) to decide how to better secure your home and the future of your family. It’s better to acknowledge things rather than sweep them under the rug.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will be careful and thorough in your approach to any kind of work today. You won’t overlook details and you will enjoy making long-range, future plans. You’re happy to work in solitude or quietly beside others. The main thing is you want to accomplish something today.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your approach to financial matters today will be conservative. (Not always your style.) Basically, you are aware of the needs of tomorrow and not just today, which is why you want to do some financial planning. Someone older might have good advice for you today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This morning the Moon is in your sign before it later moves into Aquarius. Once it is in Aquarius, you will begin to feel the tension before tomorrow’s Full Moon. But today, you will strive to balance your emotional needs with your sense of duty and obligation.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You will feel some tension building up within you today because by tomorrow morning, the Full Moon will be in your sign. This will be the only Full Moon in your sign all year. Basically, it will heighten your emotions and make relations with others a bit challenging. Oops.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Seek out the advice of someone older or more experienced, quite likely a female. This person will offer you some perspective and give you the benefit of their experience so that you can make better long-range plans for the future. You might meet this person in a group.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Director/screenwriter Christopher Nolan (1970) shares your birthday today. You are physical in your approach to life. You are also confident and decisive. You set goals and intend to achieve them. This year something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. Take it easy and learn to serve others. This is a good year to travel.
