Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 8:45 a.m. until 9:30 a.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Someone might come on a bit heavy talking about politics, religion or racial issues. Don’t let this get you down because almost virtually, at the same time, someone else will be friendly and supportive. You are not alone today. You are not alone. (Thank gawd.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might feel someone is being stingy in discussions about how to share something or divide an inheritance. And perhaps they are. Fortunately, someone else at work is on your side. Their friendship and support will soften things. Whew!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Relations with partners and close friends are a bit of a bummer today. People are critical of each other and even stingy. (Yikes.) However, playful times with children and social events will erase these bad feelings. Keep the faith. It will be OK.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today is a mixed bag. Someone in a position of authority or someone who is older or more experienced might be on your case at work today. Grrrr. However, having said that, you can still accomplish a lot, especially if you want to make your workplace more attractive.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Children might be an increased responsibility today. This won’t be much of a problem because this is also a playful, lighthearted day. So it’s a bit of both. You certainly have the energy to play and the desire to be flirtatious, fun-loving and romantic. Woo-hoo!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Although a conversation with someone older in the family might squelch you somewhat, you will be encouraged because of financial possibilities. For example, you might buy something for your home or family or you might do something to improve your digs.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Don’t fall into worry mode today. In all probability, you won’t because another, contradictory influence gives you mental energy and makes you charming with everyone! This means there is a mix of emotions today. Don’t let the negative wipe out the positive.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Although you might be worried about money in one way today (and you are), in another way, it looks like some efforts behind the scenes will create earnings for you now or in the future. So you have to take the bad with the good. Yes, it’s a mixed bag, but a promising one!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today the Moon is in your sign lined up with stern Saturn. This is a tough influence. It can be depressing, but it does encourage hard work. However, the Moon is also dancing with Venus and Mars. This encourages a pleasant interest in the arts and schmoozing with others. Go figure.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will get the most done today by working alone or behind the scenes. That will be your initial impulse. However, once you begin to accomplish something, you might want to show your efforts to bosses or people in authority. “Look what I did. How about a raise?”

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Someone older or more experienced might be critical of you today. Or perhaps they simply want you to work hard. (What a bore.) Fortunately, an interesting exchange with someone who is different, perhaps from another culture or a different country, will lighten your day.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Do not offend authority figures today because it won’t be pretty. Just keep your head down and do the work. You will be rewarded for your efforts. This reward might be financial, tangible or even a sexy flirtation!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Anne Hathaway (1982) shares your birthday today. You are seductive and alluring. You appreciate beauty around you. You have two distinctive personalities: one that is morally exalted, almost capable of miracles, and one that is hidden and darker. This is a testing year of growth and building. This growth will occur beneath the surface. Do not make major changes yet; wait until next year. Strengthen your financial position by reducing your overhead.
