Avoid shopping or big decisions from 1:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Capricorn into Aquarius.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Hold onto your hat, dear Aries, because this is an unpredictable day, especially when dealing with parents, bosses, VIPs and the police. These interactions might be explosive! They will be unexpected or surprising in some way. Do not overreact. Wait to respond. Don’t quit your day job.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Travel plans will be interrupted today almost certainly. They will be canceled, changed or rescheduled. This is also an accident-prone day for travel so be careful. Surprises related to publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education are likely.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Double check all your information related to mortgages, loans, shared property, inheritances and anything that you own jointly with others because something surprising is coming down the pipe. Don’t be caught off guard. Know where your weak link is and cover it. A stitch in time saves nine.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Close friends and partners are hard to read today. They might be feisty, rebellious or simply unpredictable. Whatever the case, someone will say something that catches you off guard. They might want more freedom in the relationship? Or perhaps they have surprise news? (Whaaat?)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Your work routine will be interrupted today by computer crashes, power outages, staff shortages and unexpected events. Smart Leos will give themselves extra time so that they have wiggle room to cope with the unexpected. Yes, you’re one of them.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is an accident-prone day for your kids, so be extra vigilant. Know where they are and what they are up to. Assume nothing. Remove all hazardous possibilities. Likewise, romance will hold some surprises as well. Oh well — you can never take anything for granted. Not even true love.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Surprises and unexpected events will impact your home and family scene today. It could be as minor as running out of bread or coffee, or it could be as major as hearing shocking news from a family member. “I’m pregnant.” (You didn’t see that one coming.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign, which simply means you have to pay attention to everything you do or say. Count to three before you respond to someone so that you can speak and act in a way you will not regret later. Be Scorpio cool. (That can be reptilian.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Keep an eye your money scene and your cash flow because something unexpected will impact your assets. Quite literally, you might find money or you might lose money. Likewise, something that you own might be lost, stolen or broken. It will be worth your while to keep your eyes open!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Today you are feisty, impulsive and possibly irritable or impatient. Take it easy! The Moon is in your sign at odds with unpredictable Uranus, which is why you are so headstrong and independent. Keep your eyes open. Look before you leap.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Like Capricorn, you feel restless but in a different way. You are more low-key about it because it’s going on inside you rather than outside. Don’t rebel against something just for the sake of rebelling. Save your battles for when they really count. But you know this.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You might meet a real character today — someone unusual, unorthodox or avant-garde. Or perhaps, someone you already know will do something that surprises you? You might even hear surprising news from a group or an association. Well, it’s not a boring day.
