Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Capricorn into Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful because today is Monday and you are eager to begin your week! However, it is a Moon Alert. This isn’t entirely bad news because during a Moon Alert, you can be playful, fun-loving and very creative! Note: Be careful about being too assertive at work. Really?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is quite a lovely day for you. Because this Moon Alert is coupled with Mercury retrograde, everyone’s efficiency will be hampered. However, your focus is more on social occasions, pleasure, romance and playful times with children. This is a creative, fun day for you! (Guard against arguments.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Arguments with partners and close friends might occur today. Certainly, family discussions with a parent or someone in a position of authority will be feisty. Perhaps this is because old family business is back on your plate and you’re not too happy.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Delays related to transportation problems and confused communications are likely today. In turn, this could lead to an argument with someone, especially a daily contact or someone at work. Don’t be pushy with others. Instead, focus on home redecorating or entertaining at home.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Money squabbles might arise today, especially with kids, social events or something to do with sports. For the most part, this is a fun-loving day. But take note: During the Moon Alert, do not spend money on anything other than food, gas and tickets for events.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Retrograde Mercury is in your sign and today it’s at odds with fiery Mars. This means you can easily have an argument with someone, especially a family member or someone at home. Nevertheless, flirtations and fun social occasions promise enjoyment and pleasure! You win some, you lose some.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Something going on behind the scenes might irk you to the point of having an argument with someone. Fortunately, with Venus in your sign now, you are unusually diplomatic and charming. Discussions with family or about your home will be positive.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because you have strong opinions today, you might end up having a quick argument with someone, especially about money or possessions. Fortunately, another influence that makes you feel happy and easygoing will counter this energy. A varied day.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

An argument with a boss, parent or someone in a position of authority might arise today. Quite likely, this will be a brief spat. You should be aware that whatever you do will be noticed. Meanwhile, money matters look good. Don’t shop during the Moon Alert.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race today because they will be too contentious. Arguments will arise. Instead, focus on fun travel plans. But don’t agree to anything important until the Moon Alert is over.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Squabbles about shared property, inheritances and jointly held possessions might occur today. Ironically, the tone of these discussions is actually positive and beneficial to you. Wait until the Moon Alert is over to make important decisions regarding these matters. (Why waste your breath?)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Relations with partners and close friends are up and down today. At one point in the day, you might argue, and then later all is laughter and fun. Go figure. Expect to meet ex-partners, ex-spouses and people from your past. Don’t dredge up old history and disputes because this will be anti-productive. Instead, keep things light.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Jason Statham (1967) shares your birthday today. You are quick-thinking, alert and adaptable, especially in practical terms. People like you because you are honest, friendly and witty. This is a year of choice. You will likely make an important decision. In the first half of the year, reduce your overhead expenses so that you are financially strong later in the year. Happiness is having alternatives.
