Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Full Moon peaks in Aries at 8:23 p.m. Chicago time.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You can’t sugarcoat a day like this. Tonight is the only Full Moon in your sign all year. In addition, the Sun is opposite your sign and opposing unpredictable Uranus, plus Mercury is at odds with Pluto. Sheesh! Refrain from angry outbursts and arguments. Zip thy lip. Good luck.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is not an easy day at work because interruptions will create havoc. Failed equipment, computer crashes, staff shortages and quarrels with co-workers will make this day a challenge! You might suffer from health challenges today as well.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Parents must be extra vigilant because this is an accident-prone day for their kids. Keep your eyes open! Lover’s quarrels might take place today because people are impatient and pushy. The way to save the day is to be cooperative, tolerant and patient.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Family arguments might break out today, especially with an authority in the family. Something unexpected will trigger them. Small appliances might break down. Everything is unpredictable and people are on edge. Yikes!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Do be careful because this is an accident-prone day. You might encounter a physical accident or you might say something you later regret. Therefore, think before you speak or act! Differences with others might occur because of power struggles. Lighten up. What’s the big deal?

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Keep an eye on your money and possessions today because anything could happen. This is an unpredictable day with a lot of strong energy. This means you might find money, you might lose money or something you own might be lost, broken or stolen. People might quarrel about money and possessions. Oy!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place. In addition, the Sun in your sign is opposite wacky Uranus, and Mercury in your sign is at odds with big daddy Pluto. That’s a lot of tension! Try to avoid arguments and power struggles.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Do what you can to avoid power struggles and arguments with others today because people are irritable, impatient and looking for a fight. But hey, this is your chance to demonstrate grace under pressure. After all, you have amazing self-discipline and will.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Friendships are important. Today people are on edge because of the Full Moon in Aries and several other planetary influences. Don’t do anything to lose a friendship or upset a good friend. Consider this an opportunity to practice patience.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It won’t be easy dealing with parents, bosses and authority figures today because people are explosive and unpredictable. They might say things that offend or upset you. However, you control your choice of response. This is where you can be a change maker. Be cool.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an accident-prone day for your sign so be careful. Pay attention to everything you say and do. Avoid arguments about politics, religion and race. Don’t try to prove anything. (Who cares?) And you don’t have to agree with someone. Just glide by with a patient look on your face. Don’t get involved.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a lousy day for important discussions about inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property. Don’t even go there. Even group discussions will end up in a shouting match. It’s all about ego and power struggles and short tempers. Keep things light! Go with what works and look for a common goal with others.
