Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 6:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. Chicago time today. After that, the Moon is from Aries into Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This morning it might be difficult to get the support you need (financial or practical) for children, sports or social activities. However, as the day wears on, it just gets better and better. Yay! Keep the faith — you won’t be disappointed.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

An authority figure or someone older might discourage you today, especially this morning. Perhaps they won’t go along with your exuberant plans at home? Fear not because someone behind the scenes will rescue you late in the day. “I’m over here!”

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Relations with a co-worker, or someone older or more experienced, might be strained today. Ironically, later in the day, a friend or a member of a group will pick up your spirits and boost your morale. Cheers!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The financial cost of something to do with kids or a social event (including sports) might put a damper on things for you today. No money to play? However, later in the day, things completely change. Someone sees your predicament and wants to help. Bravo!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Someone older, perhaps a parent, might rain on your parade at home. They refuse to endorse your enthusiastic ideas. Nevertheless, later in the day, you will be able to escape somewhere and have the fun you seek. You just need a change of venue.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you feel subdued. You’re less inclined to take a chance or stick your neck out because you think you’ll be shot down. And this might be the case. But later in the day, resources or help from another source completely change things. Awriiiight!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Financial restrictions might inhibit the choices you and friends can make or the choices of a group to which you belong. (There’s only so much you can do.) But later in the day, a female friend or partner will make things better. This person might also improve your home.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Relations with authority figures are a bit strained today. People seem to be more concerned with why you can’t do something instead of why you can. That half-empty glass. However, later in the day, a co-worker will fill that glass, perhaps literally.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Something to do with travel, higher education, publishing, the media, medicine or the law will be a challenge today. You might be disappointed. You might feel that someone has a heavy hand or is judgmental. Late in the day, fun times with a friend will make you feel good again.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A friend who is older and perhaps a member of a group might squelch your ideas about getting support for something. “It will never work. They’ll never do it.” Bummer. Later, someone at home makes you laugh and feel good. Time to let your hair down and have some fun.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a poor day to ask bosses and authority figures for permission or approval because their answer will probably be, “Talk to the hand.” How discouraging. Late in the day, you’re happy once again because a friend or partner makes a fun suggestion.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

An authority figure or a teacher might have grim news today. Whatever it is, it is not encouraging. However, later today, you might see ways to make more money or boost your income. You might even find something valuable, which makes you feel much better. Yeah.

If Your Birthday Is Today

World Cup Alpine skier Erik Guay (1981) shares your birthday today. You are steadfast, determined and decisive. Nothing wishy-washy. You are the classic, dignified Leo who is unflappable. You need freedom to act quickly. This year you will face a major decision. Save your money in the first half of the year and cut down on overhead expenses because this will help you later in the year. Your integrity and patience will be tested.
