Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping or big decisions from 8:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Cancer into Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For most of today, we have a Moon Alert, which means you should confine spending money to just buying food or gas. Enjoy entertaining at home because this is an easygoing, pleasant day. Alternatively, you might also enjoy cocooning at home all by yourself.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a creative day for writers and anyone who is dabbling in creative concepts because your mind will easily think outside of the box today. You will also have lively discussions with partners and close friends. However, postpone important decisions until tomorrow.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be careful because important decisions regarding business and commerce, as well as purchases other than food and gas, are a poor idea today. See the Moon Alert above. Just fill your databank. Discuss the subject lightly and learn what you can, but protect your money.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign for most of the day, and it is energized by Mars. This makes you feel healthy and eager to do things or make improvements around you. You are advised to just note your bright ideas and impulses and act on them tomorrow. Check the Moon Alert.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a loosey-goosey day, which means it’s a poor day for important decisions and major purchases. (See Moon Alert.) Just tread water and enjoy things as they unfold. With Venus opposite your sign now, social interaction with others will be pleasant and profitable.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a lovely day to schmooze with others whether they are friends or members of groups. In particular, you might have a confidential conversation with a female. Just make sure you don’t volunteer for anything or agree to anything important. Whatever you initiate during a Moon Alert tends not to fill your objective.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a Moon Alert day, which means things are loosey-goosey and hard to control. Expect shortages and delays. Although your efficiency at work might suffer, your energy to have fun is strong. Enjoy your day.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You can’t depend on things today. Avoid important decisions and purchases for anything other than food and gas. Things are a bit haywire; nevertheless, this can be a pleasant, easygoing day. Lower your expectations and just coast.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be careful because your mind will go to financial matters today regarding taxes, debt, shared property, inheritances and insurance. However, this is a poor day to make decisions regarding these matters. Just collect your facts and decide tomorrow. Watch the Moon Alert.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Like yesterday, the Moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to accommodate others. Do not be the aggressor. Do not be demanding. (This happens for two days every month.) Check the Moon Alert and avoid important purchases and big decisions until it is over.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You have a lot of energy today to bring to your job. Nevertheless, shortages and delays might dog your steps. Because you are focused on financial matters now, be careful. Do not make financial decisions during the Moon Alert.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a playful, creative day for you! If you work in the arts or anything related to creative concepts, you can be productive. Write down your ideas. Enjoy schmoozing with others. But wait until tomorrow to actually expedite any plans that you hatch.
