Moon Alert

Until 6 p.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” today to do business. The Moon is in Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Tread carefully today because exciting opportunities to explore social occasions or a budding romance might put you at odds with a partner, especially an ex-partner or even a parent or boss. (Yikes!) Something is so promising, and yet someone objects! You can’t please ’em all.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Something unexpected related to politics, religion, race or even someone from afar or another country might trigger big changes at home or within your family today. The changes are not entirely unwelcome; nevertheless, someone seems to object. Oh well.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You’re full of fun energy today because you want to enlighten others. You also want to get out on a short trip and go somewhere fresh and exciting. The downside is that a romantic partner might object. In addition, the limitations of your job or your health cannot be ignored.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Trust your ideas today because you might see new ways to make money. You might also be excited about a spontaneous purchase. (Avoid ground transportation, electronics, phones and computers because of Mercury retrograde.) Squabbles with your kids or a romantic partner might occur.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You feel alive and ready for anything today. However, someone might try to rain on your parade. Perhaps someone is jealous? Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race because they will only create conflict. Travel plans might be difficult.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You feel restless today. No doubt about it. However, difficulties with others related to money, possessions as well as children will social situations will be challenging to handle. Just know this: Your routine will change. Expect surprises and the unexpected.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Unexpected invitations to do something with a friend or a group might trigger problems with a partner or close friend. Likewise, someone, in the family or at home, might also object. (Like, what’s with this?) My prediction is: Today is entirely unpredictable! Know that everything will not unfold smoothly. (This requires that “ole Libran charm.”)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Unexpected praise or perhaps a raise or a promotion might thrill you today. Bring it on! Alternatively, a boss or someone in authority might flirt with you because something excites you in this area. However, it looks like something will trigger arguments with co-workers or friends, especially siblings.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Sudden opportunities to travel are exciting. However, a friend or someone in a group might object. Likewise you might have a chance to get further training or education or explore a romantic relationship with someone from another culture. (Hard to please everyone.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Keep your pockets open because unexpected goodies, favors from others and gifts might come your way today. (Especially if you have been generous to others in the past.) Unfortunately, squabbles with authority figures or family members might be a drag. Grrr. You win some, you lose some.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A close friend or partner might surprise you today. Perhaps a more casual relationship will heat up into something more cozy? Whatever the case, someone will object. Travel interruptions or unexpected problems related to politics, religion and race cannot be avoided.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your work holds lovely unexpected opportunities today. Likewise, you might suddenly feel healthier or freed from some previous affliction. Nevertheless, squabbles about money, possessions and responsibilities for others are in the picture. Bummer. Don’t let these unexpected issues mar your day. Stay positive!
