Moon Alert

After 10:30 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It will please you to get better organized because this is what you want to achieve right now. You want to be on top of things! Furthermore, in whatever you do, you want to be efficient, productive and effective. Hut, two three four!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Grab every opportunity to slip away on a vacation. Accept invitations to party and enjoy the arts, sports events and playful activities with children because this is your turn to have a good time! Romance is also blessed!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Home and family are a strong focus for you now. Many of you are involved in home repairs. Although retrograde Mercury introduces delays and silly errors, it can also help to finish things and wrap up major projects. At last!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Just go with the flow because your days are brisk and the pace is fast. You have a busy schedule! Short trips, errands, conversations with everyone plus increased reading and writing keep you on the run. You can handle this.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Your focus has been on money and cash flow lately. This is because many of you are starting to see ways to boost your income or get a better job or make money on the side. Meanwhile, retrograde Mercury will jiggle ideas about how to do this — ideas that you had long ago.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Make the most of this powerful time with the Sun and Jupiter in your sign. Admittedly, retrograde Mercury is also in Virgo, which puts you in contact with ex-partners, ex-spouses and old friends. Because this is such a lucky time for you, go after what you want. Expect a miracle.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is an excellent time for all Librans to buy wardrobe items. More than any other sign, you are very aware of your appearance and how you dress. This advantage will last until Sept. 22, so why not use it? You will like what you buy for yourself.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Enjoy this popular time! Respond to invitations from others. Join clubs, groups and associations. Entertain at home or meet friends for coffee, drinks, lunch or dinner. At this time, retrograde Mercury will put you in contact with friends from your past.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be reminded that for the next several weeks, you look good in the eyes of bosses, parents and VIPs. This means now is the time to act! Strike while the iron is hot! Approach people in authority and ask for what you want or propose your ideas and projects because they will listen to you.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Because you’re hungry to spread your wings and broaden your horizons, grab every opportunity to travel. In addition, grab every opportunity for further training or education because you will love to learn something new. Basically, you want more out of life!

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a good time to address red-tape details regarding inheritances, shared property, taxes and debt. Wrap up loose ends. Issues that have been dragging on can be completed now with the help of retrograde Mercury. Yes, pesky Mercury can cause problems but it can also benefit.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a good time to sort out your closest relationships and partnerships because if you study them, you will get a deeper understanding of what makes them tick. Specifically, you will get a better understanding of your own role in the relationship.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Richard Gere (1949) shares your birthday today. You have an inquisitive mind. You are fast on your feet but you are always a perfectionist at work. 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.
