Caution: After 7:45 a.m. Chicago time, avoid shopping or big decisions. The Moon is in Libra.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Hold on to your hat because conversations with authority figures — parents, bosses, teachers, VIPs and the police — will be over the top. They will be intense, loud and memorable. But hey, you don’t have to prove anything. Don’t do anything you will later regret.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You have big ideas and firm opinions when it comes to politics, religion, race and philosophical ideas today. This could pertain to foreign countries, travel or a particular ideology. Whatever the case, you feel intense about your beliefs and you don’t want to hold back or tiptoe around.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Although you will be generous when dividing something today or sharing with others, you do have strong feelings about what is at stake. For some of you, these strong feelings will be expressed sexually. For others, they will relate to money and possessions. Yes, it’s all intense.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Although you are keen to get better organized now and you’re working to do so, today you will find that your relationships with partners and close friends are important and meaningful. Someone will speak from their heart. Others should listen.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Relations with partners and close friends are testy lately because fiery Mars is opposite your sign. You have to chill out. Your desire to make improvements at work will be welcomed by most (although someone might be upset by your aggressive enthusiasm).
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
This is definitely a passionate, playful day for you. Basically, you want to have fun but you also have the feeling that there’s a lot at stake. Passions are riding high. It’s OK if pleasure is your No. 1 objective today. Pleasure is a great objective — temporarily.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
More than any other sign, you are affected by your immediate environment. Colors, lighting and composition are important to you. Today in particular, you have very definite ideas about what you want to achieve at home. Do not let others dissuade you. Be firm.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You will hold your own in any discussion or argument with others today because you feel so passionately about your beliefs. When a Scorpio is passionate about their beliefs, look out world! You will express yourself with fervor, clarity and willfulness. (Yikes.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
When it comes to shopping today or making financial decisions, you won’t hold back. If shopping, you will think, “I have to have this!” You will think likewise when negotiating money deals because you are passionate about everything to do with all your transactions. Oh yeah.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You will use your influence today, not without considerable charm, to make changes in your immediate environment simply because you want to see this done. You care about something and you care about how it looks. This is why no one else will dissuade you from what you want to do.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your feelings for a friend today are passionate and strong. You care about this person. (Well, when it comes right down to it, you care about your friendships, don’t you?) If you choose to come to the defense of someone, all the better. Do the right thing.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You are attracted to a friend today, perhaps even to the point where this friend might become a romantic interest or even a lover. “Moi?” (Yes, you.) All discussions with others, even in groups, will be intense today. And weather permitting, some will be in tents as well. (That’s a sleeping bag joke.)
If Your Birthday Is Today
