Moon Alert

After 2:45 a.m. Chicago time, we have the all clear to do business. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is a day of service, which means you must put your own wants and considerations second to those of others. Yes, this is an aspect of self-denial, which is not a big deal. Others will be involved with pets, home crafts and reorganizing their personal life. (Throw out five things from your medicine cabinet.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Romance will be emotional, involved and memorable today. (Nevertheless, you might feel possessive about someone.) Actually, relations with everyone, especially females, will be pleasant and upbeat today. Relax.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You want to cocoon at home today to catch your breath. Home repairs and discussions with female family members are tops on your menu. Observe your habits today. (Habits are sometimes good things but they can also restrict you and get in the way of being fresh.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you want to talk to people at a gut level; you want to get down to the nitty-gritty of things. You don’t want to waste time on superficial chitchat about the weather. Guard against knee-jerk reactions. Do your best to be in the moment. “Can you hear me now?”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Because you easily identify with what you own today, you might not want to lend something to someone. You might also derive pleasure from cleaning, polishing or repairing something you own. “My precious!” Both Mercury and Venus will make you focus on financial matters for the next few weeks.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The Moon is in your sign along with Mercury and Jupiter. This heightens your feelings about things and makes you want to share your ideas with others. You want that feeling of simpatico with someone, which is why you will reach out to others today.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Something going on behind the scenes will capture your attention today. This might mean you are working alone or behind the scenes or that you are involved in some kind of secret activity. Research will go well. Possibly, secrets will come out. (Oh my.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your contact with a friend or a member of a group is important to you today. This is why you will go out of your way to talk to this person. You might feel protective about this person or concerned for their well-being. This is an excellent day to share your goals with someone to get their feedback.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

For various reasons, personal details about your private life might be public today, or at least public in the eyes of someone in authority. You are clued in today and responsive to the general mood of everything around you. Oh yeah, you’re not sitting around getting dusty. Not you!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Do something different today because you yearn for adventure. Break free from your daily, predictable routine by going someplace different for lunch or meeting someone new. Take a different route to or from work.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Issues regarding shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances are on the table today. Whatever happens, you will feel concerned about it because it matters. You also want to feel understood. You don’t want others riding roughshod over your world.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Because the Moon today is opposite your sign, you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. This simply means being a bit conciliatory and accommodating — no biggie. You don’t have to promise to give your firstborn to anyone.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Hockey great Maurice “Rocket” Richard (1921-2000) shares your birthday today. You are confident, extroverted and independent. You are ambitious and serious about your work. You lead a busy life but you are also very caring. In the next three years, you will experience a time of culmination, success and financial accumulation. Thatís why it is wise to settle your debts this year. This is also a social year!
