Moon Alert

After 10 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” today to do business. The Moon is in Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is an excellent day to start your week. If you’re relating to children or planning social events, you will be practical and effective. But you will shine at your job! And because you do so well, others will want to help you and be part of your winning team.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If involved with sports, children or working in the arts or the entertainment world — you are a dynamo today! Meanwhile, family and domestic tasks will go well because you’re ready to work. You want to accomplish something. This is also a flirtatious, romantic day!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your mental skills are focused and practical today, which is why you can do routine work quickly and accurately. Meanwhile, you might be excited about redecorating projects at home. You might also want to buy something for your home or a family member. Plans to entertain?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your financial skills are positive today. You’re on your game; you won’t overlook anything. Meanwhile, your communication skills are fabulous! This is a great day for writers, editors, artists, salespeople, teachers and actors because your words are like gold.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign, helping you to accomplish whatever you want to do. And what you appear to be focused on is money, cash flow and earnings. For starters, you’re keen to earn money today. (“I’m giving her all she’s got, Captain!”) But you’re also interested in buying beautiful goodies.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a lovely day for your sign because Venus and Mars are lined up in Virgo, and of course, lucky Jupiter, also in Virgo, is watching from close by. This makes you energetic, charming, diplomatic and pumped to go after what you want. And you’ll get it!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Some of you are involved head over heels in a secret love affair right now. Possibly, someone older, wiser or more experienced is giving you advice — probably a female. But when one is in love, does one listen to anyone? Of course not!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

People notice you today, and what they notice is that you are steady-Eddie reliable. This is why someone will ask for your assistance, while others will ask for your advice. Meanwhile, relations with friends, especially in group situations, are positive and pumped!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a good day to make practical plans for travel in the future. (Let’s face it — if you can’t travel, you love to plan for it.) Meanwhile, today is an excellent day to make a fabulous impression on your boss or a parent. Ask for a raise or a promotion.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Discussions about shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances will go well today because you’re in focused frame of mind. However, what you would rather do is travel somewhere for pleasure. Moving ahead with learning or school opportunities will delight you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Because the Moon today is opposite your sign, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. A simple compromise here and there. No biggie. However, gifts, goodies and favors from others will still come to you! (Plus your sex drive is really stoked.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a charming day to deal with partners and close friends. People are glad to see you and vice versa. At work, you will be practical and productive because you have a willing acceptance of duty. No pain, no gain. (Not that again.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Marisol Nichols (1973) shares your birthday today. In one way, you are easygoing and adaptable, but in another way, you are powerful and influential. At several stages in your life, you choose a radically different direction. This year your success lies with others. People will benefit you. Therefore, make friends and join clubs and organizations. Help others because you will also be helping yourself.
