Moon Alert

After 5 p.m. Chicago time, avoid shopping or making important decisions. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Your health feels good today because you are in a positive frame of mind. This is why you will get along well with co-workers. This is also a great day to enjoy pets or purchase a pet. Woof! You love animals, especially baby animals. “Awwwwww, so cute!”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

TGIF! This is a fabulous day to party and enjoy the company of others. You will love to blow town and travel somewhere. Sports events, the entertainment world, romance, love affairs, playful times with children and the arts will all be a source of enjoyment.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a lovely day to entertain at home because you feel good about your home. Family members are upbeat and friendly. You’re also in the kind of mood where you want to share the wealth and share your good fortune with others. Excellent day for real estate.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a happy day because you have happy thoughts. First comes the thought, and from the thought springs the word. From the word springs the deed, and the deed soon becomes habit. Habit eventually hardens into character. Your thoughts are everything!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

“There’s money in them thar hills!” Business and commerce are favored today. Trust your moneymaking ideas, although they might be a tad optimistic. Work-related travel is possible. Whatever you engage in today will be profitable in the future.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today the Moon is lined up in your sign with lucky moneybags Jupiter. This makes you generous to everyone. You feel self-confident and tolerant. Relations with females, in particular, will be excellent. You will be attracted to metaphysical, philosophical discussions.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Spiritual issues attract you today. You feel warmhearted and generous to others, and you are very much aware of the old adage that what goes around comes around — which of course cannot be denied. Therefore, be generous: show someone a kindness.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you have a wonderful ability to schmooze with others, especially people in groups: classes, meetings and conferences. A conversation with a female acquaintance could be significant. This is the perfect day to share your hopes and dreams for the future with others to see what they say.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Personal details about your private life might be public today, especially in the eyes of bosses, parents and VIPs. However, you won’t mind — unless the details are on a police report. (Gulp!) Travel related to your job might be in the picture. People think well of you today.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Travel anywhere if you can because you want to blow town. Basically, you want to expand your horizons and feel that you’re getting more out of life. If you have a chance to sign up for a course or learn something new, this will satisfy your urge to expand your world.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Keep your pockets open because negotiations with others will bring you profits, favors and gifts. This is a good day to ask for a loan or mortgage, or borrow something from someone. You will also more easily collect a debt, as well. “Cough up!”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You will do well dealing with the public today or large groups of people. However, you will do just as well hanging out with close friends and partners. This is because it’s easy for you to have a strong rapport with others whether it’s one person or many.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Tony Shalhoub (1953) shares your birthday today. There is something about you that often inspires others. Perhaps it is your ability to observe others with unknowing eye. Many of you can magnetize people to you. This year something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new. Take it easy and learn to serve others. This is a good year to travel.
