Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions until 10:15 a.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Yesterday was a tough day but there is a residue effect that is still hanging around. You might or might not feel it. After the Moon moves into Taurus, things will start to calm down — most definitely. Consider yourself a survivor. Whew!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today the Moon will move into your sign, and this will be a shift for the entire world. However, for you, a Taurus native, it means you will still feel pretty emotional about issues. But the good news is your luck will improve. Oh yeah.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a playful, fun-loving day! Since it’s been a challenging few days, you might want to choose today to rest or hide behind the scenes so that you can catch your breath, restore yourself and be rejuvenated.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Enjoy warm conversations with others today, especially females. The insanity of the last few days is starting to quiet down. In fact, a confidential conversation with someone is exactly what will make you feel good. It’s OK to let your hair down, even if you’re bald.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For some reason, personal details about your private life are public today. People are talking about you. Fortunately, they are probably saying glamorous, flattering things, so who cares? Positive publicity is always a good thing for Leos. Actually, it’s a good thing for anyone.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Try to do something different today because you want a change of scenery. Ideally, take a short trip. Get out of town and see new places, meet new faces and try new things. Since you are the fact junkie of the zodiac, what can you learn that is new and exciting?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Things are getting calmer and all coming together today. It’s been a crazy ride for the last few days. Now it’s time to take stock, which is why you might want to check bank accounts etc. and see how things are, especially with shared property and shared responsibilities.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Take it easy and relax. When dealing with others today, be prepared to go more than halfway because the Moon is going to be in Taurus, which is 180 degrees opposite your sign. This means you have to be accommodating and appeal to that which is opposite to you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Now that the dust is beginning to settle from that crazy Full Moon in Aries, do what you can to get better organized because this will make you feel good. You are a future-oriented sign and you like to think that you are performance-ready for whatever is coming down the pipe.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

A playful day! Just what the doctor ordered. Get out and have some fun. Meet friends for brunch. Enjoy sports events, the arts or a matinee. Find ways to express your own creative urges. Whatever you do, make sure you like what you do today.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You need some down-home time to relax and catch your breath. You might take it easy at home or you might putter and reorganize things — it’s your choice. Your pace has been busy because you’ve been expanding your world and exploring new things.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You need to talk to someone today because you want to enlighten someone about your ideas. You need to get out there and see people and be seen. But mostly, you have a strong desire to communicate, even if you just write down your ideas.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Paul Sparks (1971) shares your birthday today. You are sociable and charming. You are also energetic and spontaneous. Fortunately, you look before you leap. Great news! You are now heading into one of the most powerful years of your life, a time of accumulation. Whatever you have done in the past will now ripen because it’s your time of fruition. (This is a good year to buy and sell.)
