Moon Alert

Avoid shopping and big decisions until 2:45 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful! This week begins with a Moon Alert. This is a big heads-up for you today. Be super cautious about financial matters; then later in the day, avoid arguments about money and earnings at work. Be smart and be cool!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Resist the urge to spend money or go overboard while the Moon is in your sign this morning because a Moon Alert is taking place! (That’s how this week begins.) And after that, squabbles about money might take place. Yikes! Cool your jets.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This morning can be an easygoing, carefree time; however, it’s a poor time for important decisions and certainly not a good time to spend money. Heightened emotions might get you in trouble later in the day, especially if you squabble with someone at home. Ouch. Easy does it.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This morning is a lovely time to socialize in a lighthearted way with someone — perhaps a friend or a member of a group. However, avoid important decisions, don’t agree to anything important and don’t volunteer for anything. Got that?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

In some ways, this is an easygoing morning; however, all eyes are on you for some reason. Be aware of this. Later in the day, despite your desire to socialize, people are argumentative, especially about money or something that you own. Tread carefully!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a tricky day. You probably want to get outta Dodge as this day begins because you want to avoid something. At best, things feel vague this morning. Later in the day, you might have a squabble with a parent or someone in a position of authority. Steer clear of this if you can. Time to juice!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Don’t make important decisions this morning, especially about money and shared property. Just go with the flow. Later in the day, avoid arguments about travel, legal matters, politics, religion and race. Don’t even go there.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Enjoy a friendly exchange with someone this morning. Just keep things light. Don’t agree to anything important. Later in the day, squabbles about shared property, inheritances or how to spend a specific amount of money might arise. Wait until tomorrow or Wednesday to decide. Capisce?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This morning you have an ambitious to-do list. The problem is it’s just hard to get things off the ground. (Natch — there’s a Moon Alert.) Even later, it’s still tough to get things done because squabbles with bosses and parents might rear their ugly heads. Avoid these.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re in a creative state of mind this morning. Artists and creative people will be full of ideas because it’s easy to think outside of the box. (But no shopping except for food and gas.) Later in the day, avoid squabbles with co-workers. Who cares?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This morning is the perfect time to play hooky or sleep in because you just want to cocoon at home if possible. Later in the day, you’re up for some fun and lighthearted play! Small wonder that you might squabble with someone, especially about shared costs and money.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Three planets are opposite your sign right now. You can’t ignore this. This means you have to be accommodating and cooperative. This morning is loosey-goosey and full of fantasy. Later in the day, do your best to avoid arguments with family or someone at home.
