Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 6 a.m. until 11 a.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You might meet a real character today. Or perhaps someone will surprise you with an unexpected, wacky suggestion? Everything is pretty random today, which means you have to just go with the flow. And remember: Friends don’t let friends drive naked.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your work routine will be interrupted today. This could be due to the breakdown of equipment or computer glitches. It might be staff shortages or something unexpected with a co-worker. A sudden meeting might be called or a meeting might be canceled. Stay off your heels!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Parents and teachers take note: This is an accident-prone day for your kids. Be extra vigilant and remove all potential hazards. Social plans are unpredictable. You might be surprised by an invitation, or something you were counting on might be canceled. Romance and sports events will experience upsets.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Small appliances might break down today or minor breakages could occur because something will interrupt your home routine. Family conflict might occur or a family member might have some surprising news. Expect the unexpected.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today is an unpredictable day. You might meet new faces and see new places. Unfortunately, it’s also an accident-prone day. Be careful. Pay attention to everything you say and do. The good news is your mind is wound up and firing off ideas, some of which are brilliant! (Some not so much.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Watch your money today because things are unpredictable. You might find money; you might lose money. Something you own might be damaged, lost or stolen. On the other hand, you might be happy about financial news.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today is a crapshoot. Be careful because you will want to shoot from the hip and speak without thinking. Not always your style. But that’s because you are agitated about something or excited. You feel like a termite in a yo-yo.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a restless day because you are expecting something to happen or surprised that something did happen. Today is a crapshoot, which is why it is hard to predict for everyone. People are impulsive and excitable. Be careful driving.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a busy day dealing with friends and members of groups. You will need your wits about you because people will do and say unexpected things. Plans could change suddenly and you will be caught off guard if you’re not prepared. It’s the classic day for a palace coup. “To the gates!”

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s hard to predict what bosses, parents and VIPs will do today. Don’t be put off if someone says or does something you least expect. Definitely, do not quit your day job. People are doing things impulsively today and they might regret something later. Cope as best you can.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Travel plans will be canceled or changed today. Conversely, you might suddenly have to travel somewhere today because this is an unpredictable day when it comes to travel, higher education and anything to do with medicine and the law. Fasten your seat belt.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Issues related to insurance, inheritances, taxes, debt and shared property will catch you off guard today or surprise you in some way. Is the posse after you? Think before you react because you don’t want to do something that you later regret. Be cool.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor-rapper Snoop Dogg (1971) shares your birthday today. You are kind, caring and sympathetic. You are quick to see many sides of the question. Your optimism lets you see the brighter side of life. This is a year of choice. You will likely make an important decision. In the first half of the year, reduce your overhead expenses so that you are financially strong later in the year. Happiness is having alternatives.
