Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping and big decisions from 7 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Leo into Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Keep your wits about you because today is full of the unexpected and the unpredictable. (Well, at least you know that.) Social plans might change. Ditto for sports events. This is an accident-prone day for your kids so be extra vigilant. Nevertheless, you are highly creative today!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your home routine will change today. Small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur. Company might unexpected knock at your door. Likewise, domestic arguments might break out. Be conciliatory and cooperative.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is an accident-prone day so be careful. Pay attention to everything you say and do. Poor day for important decisions. If shopping, restrict your purchases to gas, food and entertainment-related expenses. See the Moon Alert above.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your focus is on money, cash flow, earnings and financial matters today. Nevertheless, this is a poor day for decisions about finances and money. Only spend money on gas and food. However, keep an eye on your money and possessions. Guard them against loss or theft. Be smart.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

For most of this day, the Moon is in your sign; however, it is a Moon Alert. That means everything is loosey-goosey and indecisive. You’re not sure if you’re coming or going. However, it’s a creative day because you can easily think outside of the box. Postpone important decisions and purchases.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might feel restless and vague about how to start your week today because this is a loosey-goosey day. It will certainly be in your best interests to work alone or behind the scenes. Even then, something unexpected will send your day sideways. Just cope as best you can.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You’ll enjoy hanging out with friends today, especially a female friend. However, this person might do something you least expect. Or perhaps, you will meet someone who is a real character, someone who is avant-garde or unorthodox? (Restrict your spending to gas and food.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a powerful time because the Sun is in your sign. And for sure, you are noticed! But today, you might be noticed in an unexpected way that you might not have chosen. Just be aware of this. Conversations with bosses and authority figures might surprise you. Stay calm and cool.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Travel plans might be canceled, changed or rescheduled today. However, others might suddenly have to travel at the last moment. (Whaaat?) Don’t do anything rash today. Resist knee-jerk reactions to things going on around you. Just get your facts and wait until tomorrow to act.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Refrain from making important decisions about taxes, debt, inheritances and shared property today, even though that could be your focus. Postpone these decisions until tomorrow because of today’s Moon Alert. Keep things light and enjoy schmoozing with others.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Because the Moon today is opposite your own sign, it means you have to cooperate and go more than halfway when dealing with others. However, it is also a Moon Alert today. Quite likely, no one will know exactly what to do. Just play things low key and wait until tomorrow. Be safe.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your efficiency at work will suffer today — no question. Therefore, do not set the bar too high. Things are loosey-goosey for everyone today, so take it easy. Avoid important decisions and major expenditures. Carry on as usual and postpone anything important until tomorrow

Expect your well-earned rewards soon!
