Moon Alert

Until 2:45 p.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” today to do business. The Moon is in Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s a mixed bag today. Relations with authority figures — parents, bosses and VIPs — are unpredictable and possibly explosive. And yet, they are also the source of good news, especially news about your health, your job or work-related travel. Go figure. Could this be an unexpected promotion? Fingers crossed!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Travel plans might be canceled, delayed or changed today. Nevertheless, good news about vacations, publishing, the arts, the media and possibly something to do with children, medicine and the law will please you. A bit of both. But on the whole, things look good.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Something unexpected might impact your bank account or something to do with shared property, your partner’s assets, an inheritance or insurance issues. Hopefully, the surprise is good news because something will unexpectedly benefit your home, family and real estate.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be accommodating with others today because the Moon is opposite your sign. (You have to do it.) Furthermore, something unexpected is in the wind. Sudden change is coming. Fortunately, whatever it is will not worry you because your optimism is high. You’re looking forward to something!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Expect interruptions to your daily grind today, especially at work. It might be a sudden announcement, or a glitch with technology, or a canceled meeting or staff shortages or good news? It could be anything. However, something will ultimately boost your earnings or help you find ready cash. Ka-ching!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Parent should take note that this is a mildly accident-prone day for their kids. Be vigilant. However, this is also a fun-loving, playful day! Surprise invitations to parties and social events, as well as progress and productivity in creative projects (including sports), will delight you. A toast to success!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Although your home routine might be interrupted today with the breakdown of appliances or minor breakages or something unexpected, nevertheless, you feel happy at home. Maybe the interruption turns out to be something that is ultimately an improvement? And a classy one, at that.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a mildly accident-prone day so pay attention to everything you say and do. Be aware of your actions and your words. Fortunately, you might also brainstorm some genius -like ideas. Meetings with friends will definitely please you because a discussion might lead to a great business idea.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a funny money day. On one hand, you might lose money or find money or lose a possession or find a possession. You get the point. However, with regard to your career and reputation, discussions with important people could boost your earnings! Go figure.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the Moon is in your sign at odds with wild, wacky Uranus and dancing beautifully with moneybags Jupiter. Are the surprise and the money connected? It’s hard to say. They might be. Something unusual might suddenly lead to travel opportunities or chances for further education.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Something behind the scenes will surprise you today. Make sure that whatever the distraction is, it does not lead to an accident. Keep your eyes open! The good news is that something behind the scenes can also boost your shared wealth with someone. Nice.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A friend or a member of a group might surprise you, and the surprise might impact your job or your pocketbook. However, you might also meet someone through a partner or close friend who can help you either personally or professionally.
