Moon Alert

Until 7:30 p.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” today to do business. The Moon is in Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Don’t try to conceal your feelings from others today because you need to be yourself and feel who you really are. Relations with others, especially females (regardless of your own sex or whether you’re getting any) are positive. This is a playful, fun-loving day!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You want to cocoon at home today because you feel the need to withdraw from the busyness around you. You want the reassurance of being among familiar surroundings. Something might occur that makes you more aware of your habits, especially habits from your youth.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Communications with others are important to you today. You want to get down to the nitty-gritty of things. (“How’s your sex life?”) You don’t want to stand around chatting about the weather. If you have to make a decision, you will be influenced by your past.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For some reason, it’s easy to identify with what you own today. (Of course, it’s also easy for you to be attached to your belongings and to your relationships. You are the barnacle of the zodiac, remember?) If shopping, beware shopping therapy.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is the second day in a row that the Moon is in Leo, which is empowering for you. At the same time, it’s excitable. It can make you demanding, yet it can also make you very giving. Go figure. Continue to look for ways to boost your income because you can.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This continues to be a stellar time for you with Venus, Mars and Jupiter in your sign. Enjoy this good fortune! Even though you are socially empowered and schmoozing successfully with others, today you might want to work behind the scenes or seek out solitude. Hmmm?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You need the company of others, which is why you often seek out people. Today is no exception. In particular, you will enjoy the company of females or a close female friend. In fact, you might have some secrets to share. You know who you are.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Personal details about your private life might be public today. Since you are private person by nature, even secretive, this might concern you. However, since relations with friends are so positive now, this is probably nothing to worry about.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Do something so that you feel you are having a bit of an adventure or at least a change of scenery, because bottom line: You want to get outta Dodge. Travel if you can or be a tourist in your own city. Go someplace you’ve never been before even if it’s just a new store or restaurant.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You feel pretty intense today, no matter what you’re doing. You will be concerned with financial matters, especially related to shared property, mortgages, debt, taxes and inheritances. You certainly have travel plans, which are going to require money. Oh yeah.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

The Moon is still opposite your sign, which means you have to compromise with others. Yet ironically, other planets are eager to bestow gifts and favors on you. So you simply have to juggle these two different influences to your own best advantage.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Focus on work today. Although someone might annoy you, most of the people you contact now are supportive and helpful. And well they should be, because in the larger picture, this is a life peak for you. Many of you are enjoying success and moments for which you are proud.
