Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to do business until 9:30 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful about teachers, preachers and politicians who might make you feel guilty or inadequate today because you need this like a fish needs a bicycle. Don’t let anyone else diminish you. Nobody’s perfect. Let him without faults cast the first stone and all that.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Don’t be anxious about inheritances, shared property, taxes, debt and that sort of thing today. You might feel disillusioned or let down by a friend either because something fell through or there was a misunderstanding. Stay chill.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A friend might surprise you today. Whatever happens, don’t let relations with bosses, authority figures, partners and close friends make you feel inadequate for some reason. This is a kind of day where a lot of people think, “I’m nothing but navel lint.”

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a tricky day for ideological discussions about politics, religion, philosophy, racial issues or legal matters. Whatever transpires might disappoint you or make you question things, even question yourself. Please know that many feel this way today, but it’s a temporary thing. Courage!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Let’s face it. The vibes are weird. You might feel inadequate as a parent or nervous to host an event. Romantic relationships might also be in the toilet. Oy vey. As if this weren’t enough, you feel broke. Time to send out for dark chocolate.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

It seems that your worst fears about a relationship are coming true today. At least, it feels that way. Either you feel inadequate or lacking in some way, or you feel your partner or close friend is. Either way, life is disappointing. This feeling will change. Relax.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might be worried today because the reality of your life seems to be so far from the ideal. Well, join the club. We number millions. We even have jackets. (Not stylish enough for you.) Do not be disappointed in yourself or others. Be glad you’re alive.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might feel depressed about finances, your earnings or something related to your cash flow — or maybe it’s your cash dribble? Or you might just feel confused and indecisive. Try to simplify things as much as possible and avoid making important decisions while you feel this way.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might feel uncertain about something related to a parent or a family member or your home scene. Because things are not ideal, you’re not sure what to do about something. When you feel this uncertain, do not act, if possible. Wait until a potential solution presents itself.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are often hesitant because you fear public failure. Of course, you’re thinking, “Doesn’t everyone?” Yes, this is true but they don’t fear it as much as you do. Therefore, do not let your fears paralyze you. Nothing is ever perfect and no one ever reaches their ideal. Life is like that. Relax.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might be unhappy or concerned with how things are playing out with a friend or a member of a group, especially with respect to your possessions, your money or the cost of something. You might even be reluctant to complain! Don’t worry. This situation will just be history soon.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a powerful time for your sign, and it’s also a powerful month! Nevertheless, you’re nervous about something because you doubt yourself. Don’t worry. This is an independent influence that will not last, and in fact, everyone feels it.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Kristin Bauer van Straten (1966) shares your birthday today. You have an original take on life and you have a great imagination. Your freedom and strong individualism can sometimes challenge partnerships. Something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new this year. It will also be a year of service to others. This is a good year to travel.
