Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions from 4:15 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. Chicago time. The Full Moon in Aquarius peaks at 4:26 a.m.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today’s Full Moon energy might create problems with your kids or children in general. It might also create some tension in a social situation. The main thing to do when the Moon is full is to be low key. Wait to see which way the wind is blowing before you leap into action.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You feel pulled between the demands of home and family vs, the demands of your job and your career today. You cannot satisfy everyone. Well, that’s what happens when there is a Full Moon, but today you cannot ignore the needs of home and family.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Do be careful because today is accident-prone for your sign because of the Full Moon energy. This means you or someone else might be distracted and this is what causes an accident. Your best bet is to slow down and be mindful.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Something to do with your earnings, your job or your financial situation might come to a head today. It could relate to your responsibilities for someone else; it might also relate to how to share something. If this has been an issue then today things will be decided one way or the other.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today the only Full Moon opposite your sign all year is taking place, which means you will feel some tension when dealing with partners and close friends. Just be aware of this. Don’t be demanding but, on the other hand, don’t be a martyr. (Martyrdom doesn’t suit you.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Things might be dicey at work today because of the Full Moon. (Or you might not even notice it. Go figure.) The best way to slide through today is to cut others some slack. Be forgiving and tolerant because sometimes people are too intense during the Full Moon. (Not you, of course.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be pleasant and diplomatic when dealing with friends and groups today because the Full Moon can create problems — no question. But if you don’t overreact and if you are not critical of others, you can slide through this day with no trouble.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Some Full Moons are easier than others. Today’s Full Moon is not one of them. (Sorry.) When dealing with family members, bosses, VIPs, it seems that they are at odds with you or someone keeps creating obstacles. Be patient. Do not be judgmental. These problems will fade in 48 hours.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be careful today because this is a mildly accident-prone day for your sign mainly because of the Full Moon energy, which in turn, can create emotional distractions — or real distractions. Therefore, be alert.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Something to do with inheritances, shared property or shared responsibilities might be challenging today. Hopefully, there will be a resolution because something finally comes to a head. Whatever the case, your problems will diminish in 48 hours.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today the only Full Moon in your sign all year is taking place. Yes, this can make you more emotional when dealing with others. However, if you’re reading this right now, you know this and you can be more skilful. Don’t overreact. Be warm and friendly!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Difficulties at work might arise today because of the Full Moon energy. Everybody responds to each Full Moon in a different way, in part, because each Full Moon takes place in a different sign. Be accommodating and reasonable with everyone.
