Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions until 6:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

There is a Moon Alert day. Therefore, in discussions about politics, religion, racial issues and philosophical matters, enjoy the banter, but do not take a firm stand on anything. Don’t agree to anything important before 6:30.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Remember to go more than halfway when dealing with others now because the Sun is opposite your sign. Furthermore, this placement makes you tired, which means you need more rest and sleep. Today is a poor day for negotiations. Just chill.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your impulse now is to get better organized so you can be efficient, effective and productive. You want to be healthier, too. Yes, it’s a self-improvement kick. Just avoid important decisions and purchases before 6:30.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Lucky you! This is a great day to party and schmooze. It’s a perfect day for a brunch with friends, coffee or drinks with a pal, or friendly conversations over the back fence. It’s also a great day for creative ideas.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is creative day for you. Because your focus now is on home, family and possibly home repairs, you might also come up with creative ideas to implement at home. Nevertheless, don’t act on anything important before 6:30. Just mull things over.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You are active with a busy pace. You’ve got places to go, things to do and people to see. Today, however, if you can, you need to cocoon at home and do practically nothing. That’s OK. It’s what the doctor ordered. Chill out until 6:30.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be careful. Right now you have a strong focus on money, cash flow and earnings, which is fine. However, today is a poor day to make financial decisions or any kind of important decision before 6:30. Forewarned is forearmed.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a powerful time for you with the Sun and Mercury in your sign. Today, the Moon urges you to focus on financial issues and cash flow. However, do not be deceived! The Moon can be tricky. Today, it’s a poor day for shopping (other than for gas or food) or important decisions before 6:30.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For most of this day, the Moon is in your sign. However, it is a Moon Alert, which means you should tread carefully. Just keep things light. Don’t agree to anything important and don’t volunteer for anything. And don’t spend money on anything other than just food or gas. Capisce?

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Not until the Moon moves into your sign at 6:30 today do we have the all-clear to make important decisions and buy anything major. Until then, it’s all loosey-goosey. Just coast and take it easy. You will enjoy socializing with others.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

People notice you now because the Sun is high in your chart. Today is a friendly day for you. You will enjoy schmoozing with others, especially female acquaintances. Nevertheless because it is a Moon Alert for most of the day, avoid important decisions or spending money on anything other than gas and food. Tickets to movies, sports etc. are fine.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

For some reason, you have no control over the fact that personal information about you seems to be rather public today. Like what’s with that? Don’t worry about this. It’s a Moon Alert day, so things are weird and fuzzy for everyone. Just hang in there.
