Caution: Avoid shopping or important decisions until 10 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Libra into Scorpio.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Be careful today, especially when talking to bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs. This is a poor day to volunteer for anything or agree to anything important. You feel friendly and cozy with authority figures. Maybe too cozy?
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is a Moon Alert day, which means it’s a bad day to spend money on anything other than food or gas. It’s also a poor day to commit to anything or make important decisions. And yes, this includes making travel plans.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You feel sympathetic to others today, especially those who are less fortunate. You might want to help them. This is an excellent idea, but because of the Moon Alert today, wait until tomorrow to see how you really feel. Help with your energy, not with your wallet.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This is a lovely social day! It’s perfect for a long lunch with friends. You will also enjoy relating to members of the general public because people are mutually sympathetic and easygoing. Nevertheless, this is a Moon Alert day. (See above.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Relations with co-workers are warm and friendly today. You might want to help someone in need, which is a noble impulse. However, because it is a Moon Alert day, don’t agree to anything important. Wait until tomorrow to assess what you can really offer.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is a fun-loving, creative day! Enjoy a romantic date or a casual get-together. Playful times with children will delight. Because you are in touch with your muse, you can use your talents in an imaginative way. (“How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” “Practice!”)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today the Moon is in your sign; however, there is a Moon Alert for most of today, which means you should avoid important decisions and not spend money on anything other than food or gas. This is just to protect your best interests. Meanwhile, enjoy entertaining at home and avoid real-estate deals.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You charm others with your words today, which is why this is a good day for those of you who act, teach, write, sell or promote. Without question, all creative activities are blessed! However, shopping is not one of them. Close your wallet except to buy food or gas.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Today you might be tempted to buy luxurious, elegant items because they’re so appealing. Nevertheless, be aware that most of today is a Moon Alert, which means it’s a bad time to shop for anything other than food or gas. Protect yourself.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
It’s easy to be charming with others today because you feel warmhearted and sympathetic to someone. Enjoy this warm camaraderie but avoid making important commitments or promises. Wait until tomorrow to stick your neck out.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Secret relationships and romantic trysts will be exciting today — the stuff of movies and juicy diaries. This is a strong time for you because the Sun is in your sign and fiery Mars is at the top of your chart. But protect your best interests today by just treading water. Business as usual.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Your relations with friends and members of groups are warm and sympathetic today. You easily sense what it’s like to walk a mile in someone else’s wedgies. In fact, this could prompt you to help someone. If your commitment is major, wait until tomorrow to decide.
If Your Birthday Is Today
Actor Wilmer Valderramma (1980) shares your birthday today. You have a strong social conscience and often speak out about inequities in society. You are a leader who likes to entertain, teach, explain and build new things. This year is one of growth and building. Initially, this will take place quietly beneath the surface. Wait until next year to make major changes. If you can reduce your overhead, you will strengthen your financial position.
