Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions after 12:30 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Something unusual might occur today. Your travel plans might be changed, canceled or rescheduled. Or you might meet someone who is a character or someone from a different background. Even though there is a sense of obligation to do something, things will be interesting!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Children might be an increased responsibility today. In addition, something unexpected might impact banking, shared property or jointly held items or the responsibility for someone else. Make sure everything is clear, especially the boundaries of responsibility. Check your bank accounts.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your partner or a close friend might throw you a curveball today or do something unexpected. People are quite spontaneous, which means there will be a constantly changing landscape. You might also meet someone new! There’s lots of energy in the air!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be aware of the Moon Alert if you are at work today because things are changing swiftly. In addition to this, during a Moon Alert, life is always a bit goofy and loosey-goosey. Very likely, your day will take sudden twists and turns that you didn’t expect. Stay light on your feet!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your social plans will change today. You might receive an unexpected invitation to do something or, conversely, something that you expected to do might be canceled. New flirtations could be exciting. However, this is also a mildly accident-prone day for your kids. Be vigilant.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Things at home are a bit up for grabs today, so don’t be upset if your home routine is wobbly and unpredictable. Just go with the flow but give yourself extra time for wiggle room to cope with the unexpected. If you’re not rigid, this is an interesting day! (The rigid trees are the first to snap in a storm.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might meet new faces and see new places today because there is an uptempo, exciting feeling to this day. Admittedly, it’s also scattered and a bit without direction, which simply means you have to watch what’s going on and be ready to bend. Right?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Keep an eye on your money and your possessions today because things are a bit erratic. Yes, you might find money or you could lose money. Ditto for your possessions. Therefore, keep your eyes peeled. Count your change and check your bills.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today will be full of surprises and unexpected events so get ready for this. You feel independent and self-reliant! In turn, you might be full of inventive, spontaneous ideas that could even lead to close dancing. Who knows? (The Shadow knows.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

It’s hard to predict how today will unfold because it’s a loosey-goosey day. But this much is a given: Something you don’t expect will occur, or something you do expect will not occur. Therefore, be laid-back and easygoing. Give everything a wide berth so that it all flows smoothly.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might meet a new friend today or be introduced to someone who is unusual. Or possibly, someone you already know will do something that surprises you. At least, this is not a boring day. Unfortunately, it’s not a dependable day either. Good luck.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A parent or boss might say or do something that surprises you today. But it will be minor — nothing you can’t deal with. However, your plans might change midday so do be aware of this. Be a good sport and go with the flow. Proper footwear is a must.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Soprano Kathleen Battle (1948) shares your birthday today. You are dignified, enterprising and independent. You are also compassionate and helpful. You like to be appreciated and admired. In the next three years, you will experience a time of culmination, success and financial accumulation. That’s why it is wise to settle your debts this year. This is also a social year that also deals with the results of last year’s changes.
