Moon Alert

Until 10:30 p.m. Chicago time, we have the all clear to do business. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a great day because your relationships with co-workers are upbeat. Work-related travel is likely. In the next few weeks, expect a raise or praise from someone because you are doing a fabulous job and this is finally apparent to someone. (A pat on the back is nice but show me the money!)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a fabulous date day! Make plans for a fun, long lunch or a great evening with friends. (If you’re lucky, you are off on vacation.) Romance and love affairs are blessed. Accept invitations to party and schmooze because this is a social day!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will enjoy entertaining at home today. However, this is also a great day to explore real-estate negotiations. Family discussions will also go well. Nevertheless, relations with partners and close friends are a bit dicey. Ya think?

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You can make money with your words today through writing, selling, talking, teaching or acting. Yada, yada, yada. You will also enjoy chatting over the fence and talking to siblings, relatives and neighbors. These interactions will give you a warm feeling in your tummy.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a powerful time for you because the Sun is in your sign, and four planets are in your House of Earnings and Money. This is why you are spending money, and at the same time, looking for ways to boost your income. Don’t worry — you can do this.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign lined up with lucky Jupiter. This makes you sympathetic and generous to everyone because you have a genuine concern for their welfare. It also promotes your own good health and optimism. Naturally, your positive vibes attract people to you.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Even though this is a popular time for you, and you are busy with friends and groups, today you will prefer to hide somewhere (perhaps with a friend) so that you can relax and take stock of your world. Things are good and you are happy!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because your relations with friends and groups are so positive today, everyone wants you to be on their team! Enjoy schmoozing with everyone. Set some time aside to discuss future goals with a friend or a group because this will prove to be helpful to you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You make a fabulous impression on bosses and VIPs today. (This includes parents and the police.) In fact, for whatever reason, you are public today. People admire you! Actually, romance with a boss or someone older or richer might begin.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Do whatever you can to break free of your usual routine today because you need fresh air. You hunger for change and something stimulating! Cater to your urge for adventure and do something different. Go someplace unusual for lunch. Take a short drive. Go to the beach.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a good day to ask for a loan or mortgage or to borrow something from someone because you will benefit from the wealth and resources of others. It’s also a great day to discuss inheritances and how to divide or share something.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Relations with close friends and partners are positive today. This is a great day to schmooze with others and relate to members of the general public. You might be introduced to someone from another culture because the people you see today will expand your world in some way.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Astronaut Neil Armstrong (1930-2012) shares your birthday today. You are compassionate and willing to help others. You are also resourceful and creative. Because you are both unselfish and charming, you will go far in life. This year you will be a student and a teacher. You will be excited as you start to see the fruits of your efforts for the past six years. Expect your well-earned rewards soon!
