Moon Alert

Not until 11:30 a.m. Chicago time do we have the “all clear” to do business. After that, the Moon moves from Taurus to Gemini. The Full Moon in Gemini peaks at 4:44 p.m.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Keep your wits about you today because this Full Moon is an accident-prone time for your sign. Of course, an accident does not have to happen, but the heightened emotions caused by the Full Moon might distract you. Therefore, be alert.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Tension about finances and cash flow might come to a head today because of the Full Moon. Someone, and it could be you, will be aggressive discussing loans, inheritances, insurance issues or shared property. Chill out.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today is the only Full Moon in your sign all year. Naturally, this can set up tension between you and others. You might feel this today; you might feel this tomorrow. Knowing this, be tolerant and easygoing, and cut others some slack.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Tension with co-workers might arise today because of the energy of the Full Moon. Nevertheless, you can get a lot done. It’s just energy and you can use this energy in a productive way. (“Let’s play bureaucracy! Everyone stands in a circle and the first person who does something loses.”)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today’s Full Moon can create stress with romantic partners, kids and friends. This is just what it is. But you do not have to be held hostage by this phenomenon. Be aware of this and be cool. Don’t overreact. The Full Moon tension is gone in 48 hours.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you will feel the classic tug-of-war between the demands of home and family vs. the demands of your job, career or public reputation. Oy vey. You cannot satisfy both ends of this equation. However, with this particular Full Moon, you cannot ignore your job responsibilities.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be careful because this is an accident-prone day for you simply because of the Full Moon energy. People are distracted and emotionally heightened when driving or doing anything, which means everyone else has to be on guard.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Financial matters will come to a head today for some reason. You might feel that whatever you try to do, others will oppose you. It might be difficult to get cooperation from others, especially regarding discussions about loans, mortgages and shared property.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today the only Full Moon that is opposite your sign all year is taking place. That’s why you might feel tension when dealing with partners and close friends either today or tomorrow. Since you are aware of this, you can adjust your settings.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You can get a lot done behind the scenes or working alone today because you have a lot of energy! Research will go well. Your only frustration might be dealing with co-workers. You might also have health concerns. These problems will diminish in 48 hours.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Parents will have to be patient with children today because they can feel the Full Moon tension just like your family dog or cat. Keep things light. Likewise, keep things light with romantic partners because cozy relationships can also go off the rails during this Full Moon.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The Full Moon today makes you feel pulled between trying to please home and family and trying to please the demands of your career and job. It will be obvious to you that you cannot satisfy both. However, in this case, you cannot ignore your job because too much is going on. Patience!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer Amy Grant (1960) shares your birthday today. You are dynamic and persistent, which is why you succeed. You are not a quitter. In fact, you make things happen. This is perhaps one of the most powerful years of your life — a time of accumulation. The seeds you have planted in the past will now ripen because it’s a time of fruition. This is also a good year to buy and sell.
