Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 7:15 p.m. until 10:15 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful because your judgment is off today. It’s just your reasoning powers, and it only applies to today. Do not go overboard by promising more than you can deliver. And don’t expect too much from someone. Avoid major financial decisions and purchases.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You are the financial wizard of the zodiac. However, even you must avoid important financial decisions today because your judgment is off. Be leery of major purchases. Do not to commit to important financial matters. And caution regarding spending!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

For most of today the Moon is in your sign at odds with Venus, Jupiter and Mercury. Your day can be quite pleasant; no worries on that score. However, it will be wise to avoid important decisions, especially regarding expenditures for home and family.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

There is a foggy vibe today; you can feel it. Fortunately, it won’t affect your ability to schmooze with others, so do enjoy this day. In fact, you might be in party mode! Nevertheless, you might be fast and loose with details and inclined to overlook things. Be careful.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Relations with friends and groups are positive today. However, beware foolish generosity! You often pick up the tab for others and then later wonder why. Don’t fall into this trap today. Be sensible. It’s good to be generous, but don’t be an idiot. (Only a fellow Leo can say this.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today a gaggle of planets in your sign is at odds with the Moon and Neptune. What does this mean? It means you are moody and overly sensitive, and you might be confused dealing with parents and family. Don’t bite off more than you can chew. (And you can chew a lot.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Even though this is a vaguely confusing day, don’t let this stop you from enjoying schmoozing with others. But do be aware that confused conversations and assumptions are possible. If in doubt, do nothing. (Instead of going overboard and doing everything!)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a popular time for you, which means you will be busy today. When people are popular, they want to do something special to kick off their weekend. Nevertheless, be careful about money matters, especially shared property. Watch your spending habits. Think twice.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Relations with bosses, parents and VIPs are very good right now; however, today there is something confusing going on. You can feel it; they can feel it. Knowing this, do not commit to anything. Do not volunteer for anything. Listen to your gut instincts for your own self-preservation.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race today because confused assumptions can get you in hot water. (And you’re not a teabag.) Do not believe everything you hear. And when talking to others, make sure you know that what you say is true.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Because your focus is on shared property, taxes, debt, inheritances and such at this time, be very careful today. These are the very areas where you could make a mistake or misunderstand something. Assume nothing. Don’t offer more than you are prepared to give. (And don’t fake it, either.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Even though things are confusing with partners and close friends, this can still be a pleasant day. But keep in mind that exaggerated responses and confusion will be par for the course. Therefore, be circumspect and careful. Do not go overboard.
