Moon Alert

After 3:30 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 a tricky day because two different influences are at play. One influence will promote discussions with others about practical long-range plans for the future. However, the other influence throws you into a real power struggle with someone. Yikes!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

When it comes to matters at work today, equipment breakdowns are likely. This applies to any task you doing or to your slave-wage job. What will complicate things even further is someone in a position of authority might make you account for yourself. Yikes!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Romantic discussions or discussions about children, sports or the arts will focus on practical issues. This could relate to the cost of things or the division of labor. However, these discussions could turn into arguments. People are emotionally invested in what they want today and they intend to get it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In one way, this is a good day for family discussions, especially about home repairs or practical aspects related to family and home. But in another way, people are insistent, pushy and dogmatic, which is why a family conflict might occur. Let the dust settle before you respond.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’re in a practical frame of mind today, which is why you want to tackle serious discussions with others. In addition, your concentration is excellent, and you won’t mind routine work. However, you might have a standoff with someone about who will get their way.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Financial discussions with others might go well today because you are in a practical frame of mind. Furthermore, someone older might have good advice for you. Unfortunately, a clash of wills is also likely, especially about money, cash flow or possessions.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

With retrograde Mercury in your sign, you cannot avoid delays, errors and misunderstandings. You will also hear from partners and old friends from your past. Be careful today because discussions with others will turn into power struggles. Stay chill.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might get work done by doing research or working alone or behind the scenes today. Remember that at this time, it’s easier to finish old things rather than begin new ones. But likely, you will feel irked by something. Something or someone might cross you. Grrr.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Power struggles with someone of a different age are likely today. People are entrenched in their views today and they want their own way. And yes, this includes you, too. Difficulties with a powerful person in a group situation are likely. Just coast, nice and easy.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be careful today. In one way, this is an excellent day to talk to bosses and authority figures about practical matters. You will see that you are on the same page. Nevertheless, heated feelings might suddenly turn things into a power struggle or argument. This is not good. Be alert. (The world needs more lerts.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You’re in the right frame of mind to study something today or read legal documents because you have excellent powers of concentration. However, you might also become excited about something, which leads to arguments about politics, religion or race. Expect transportation delays as well.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Even though you’re willing to do your due diligence with red-tape matters like inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property, you will encounter difficulties with someone. Fortunately, you have the patience today to deal with difficult people, or nice people who are temporarily being difficult.
