Avoid shopping or important decisions from 5:15 until 7 a.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You might be excited about something today. Whatever it is, it’s a big idea and you’re stoked about it. The thing to know is your “big idea” is suspect today because it might not survive the reality test. Ah reality, that ugly head.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
If you are involved in a financial deal today, be careful because it’s easy to go overboard. You might agree to an inflated price or you might suggest one. The deal might look better than it actually is. Nevertheless, this is a good day for business.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your financial judgment is a bit off today. That’s why you are more susceptible to being extravagant or downright foolish with generosity. Overeating and self-indulgence are also likely. It’s still a fun, pleasant day. Just be aware of these other things.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You’re in an emotionally expansive space today, which is why you’re ready to open up your home, your heart or perhaps even your wallet to someone. (Did you see that moth?) Even though things are easygoing, be aware of an element of excess today.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You will enjoy an upbeat, warm relationship with a female friend today, in part because you both share enthusiasm for an idea or an event. This shared enthusiasm is joyous and fun — but is it realistic? Make sure you know what you’re doing.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Make sure you don’t make promises to others that you cannot keep because it’s easy to do this today, especially when talking to bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs or the police. A lot of people are ready to play a long shot today. It might pay off; it might not.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
It’s easy to make big travel plans today because you’re full of big ideas about going places. These big ideas might apply to higher education, publishing, medicine, the law and other areas. These ideas might be valid, or just big ideas that don’t materialize.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
If you have to divide something or share something with someone today, make sure your feet are on the ground even if your head is in the clouds. Don’t give away the farm because this is what you might be tempted to do. Postpone financial decisions.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Because the Moon is opposite your sign today, you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. However, this doesn’t mean you have to be a doormat. (Not your style, anyhow.) Be aware that a lot of talk is fast and loose today.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Be careful that you don’t bite off more than you can chew at work today. Be realistic if you have to suggest deadlines to others. Be realistic about what it is you must personally achieve. In fact, when it comes to health issues — be super realistic.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might go overboard romantically today. You might be so carried away you’re ready to promise someone the Sun and the Moon. Well, Aquarius does rule the heavens: astronomy, aviation and astrology. Nevertheless, don’t get carried away.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You will be inclined to be excessive about a family issue today. You might want to spend too much money on your home, or you might invite too many people to an event. Knowing this ahead of time, you can pull in your reins.
If Your Birthday Is Today
Zoologist/TV host Dave Salmoni (1975) shares your birthday today. You are a builder within your family and sometimes literally. Your ability to create structure is valued because you lend stability to those around you. 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.
