Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business until 10:55 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Leo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s hard to conceal your feelings from others today. Don’t even worry about this. Just be yourself. If you are in love, it shows. Enjoy improved relations with female acquaintances today, in part, because you feel protective and nurturing to others.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might choose to be alone today because you prefer to be in the familiar surroundings of your home. You might also see how often your reactions to people and events in life are just habitual responses. Make a point to really see people and listen to what they say.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Something out of the past will influence your thinking today. What’s important is to relate to the present moment, and not just be influenced by past reactions. Do your best to be present and real in all your conversations with others.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You identify with your possessions today, which means you will want to repair, clean, maintain or polish something you own. You might also want to protect or guard it and do what you can to keep it for yourself. “Hands off, this is mine.”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You feel a strong need to relate to others or belong to a group today. You don’t want to feel left out in the cold. This is why you will be sympathetic to someone if they need some warmth or understanding. Of course, you want someone to be sympathetic to you, as well.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you might choose to withdraw from the busyness of the world around you. It’s not that you are antisocial; it’s just that you prefer to be low-key because you prefer your own company today. You might also be interested in mystical or spiritual matters.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your emotional contact with someone is important today. This is why a conversation with a friend could be deep and meaningful, especially if this acquaintance is a female. You might even feel possessive about a friend or jealous if this friend pays more attention to someone else.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are sensitive and responsive to the needs of a group of people today because you see the extent to which your relationship has influence or control over them. Certain facts about your personal life might be public or under discussion for some reason. (Yikes.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today you want to escape and do something different. The bottom line is you want adventure! Yes, you need a change of scenery. Therefore, do something to satisfy this urge. Travel if you can, or at least be a tourist in your own city. Do something stimulating and exciting!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Whatever you do today, your emotional encounters with others will be more intense. (This might surprise even you.) Caution about feeling too possessive or jealous or even envious about something. Instead, focus your energy on finishing red-tape details with inheritances or shared property.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Conflicts with others will be emotional today, in part because you find it tough to be objective. Knowing this, you can try to guard against a knee-jerk reaction. Think before you respond to someone. In fact, think about the bigger picture and what your overall objective is.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today is a day of service to others. You won’t mind putting your own interests second to those of someone else, even if this is done unconsciously. It just seems to be the thing to do. You might also be concerned with some health issues.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Business magnate/philanthropist Warren Buffett (1930) shares your birthday today. You are a perfectionist who is sociable and honest. You have a sharp intellect and you love a challenge. You appear calm but you are excitable inside. Take advantage of opportunities that present themselves this year because this is the year you’ve been waiting for. Expect a major change, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2006. It’s time to test your future!
