Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Full Moon in Capricorn peaks at 11:07 p.m. Chicago time.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today’s Full Moon thrusts you between the demands of home and family vs. the demands of your career and public life. You can’t please everyone. You know this. However, with so much going on at home, you cannot ignore your private life.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Take it easy today because the Full Moon energy can create an accident-prone influence. Slow down and be mindful of everything you say and do. Work-related travel could be demanding. Don’t take on more than you can handle.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your financial judgment might be off because of today’s Full Moon. This especially applies to spending money on social occasions, sports events, children and romance. Don’t do anything you will regret later. If in doubt, do nothing.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the only Full Moon that is opposite your sign all year is taking place. This can create tension with partners and friends. You might become excessive in some way or go overboard with a family decision or with something to do with your home. Be aware.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You can handle the energy of today’s Full Moon as long as you don’t try to work too much or work too hard to please others. Just do what is expected and no more. Each Full Moon tends to heighten things and distort one’s judgment.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be patient with children today. Likewise, be patient with romantic partners and sports events. This is because the Full Moon today might make you too emotional or demanding. It might also impact your finances and encourage you to spend too much. Ouch.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today’s Full Moon can put you at a crossroads. However, despite contrary influences that might create conflict at home, you cannot ignore your reputation, your career and your responsibilities to others. Just keep things in perspective. This is a quick, short-lasting influence. Relax — no biggie.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is an accident-prone day for you because of the energy of the Full Moon. Think before you speak or act. Don’t make promises that will cause problems for you later because you might be tempted to take on more than you can deliver. Be smart.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Watch your money today because the Full Moon might trick you into spending too large. You might have an emotional reaction and be impulsive in a way that you could later regret. Put the brakes on. Be aware of what you are doing. It’s real money.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place, which could create tension between you and others, especially partners and close friends. Do not bite off more than you can chew. Do not overreact to anything either. Just remember that the Full Moon energy is gone in 48 hours.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might feel stress at work today or even to your health because of the Full Moon energy today. This particular Full Moon has a tendency to push something into excess or to overdo things. Be aware of this. If you suspect you are going overboard in some way, pull in the reins.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re tempted to party in a major way today because of the Full Moon. In fact, you might spend too much money on social occasions, sports events, children or just having fun. Remind yourself to be realistic. Don’t get carried away.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Milo Ventimiglia (1977) shares your birthday today. You are sensitive, intelligent and a great support and comfort to others. Many of you will be a student or teacher this year because your capacity for research is at its best. This is your year to reflect on the past and plan for the future. This will not be a year of action, but rather a year of waiting and development.
