After 8 a.m. Chicago time, we have the all clear to shop and make important decisions. The Moon is in Scorpio.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You are intense today. Take a deep breath. You probably will focus on shared property and joint possessions today at some point. (Note: It’s hard to get money from others when the Moon is in Scorpio.) Easy does it.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Because the Moon today is in a sign that is 180 degrees opposite from Taurus, you have to be conciliatory with others. (Incidentally, the sign that is opposite Taurus is Scorpio.) Just go with the flow and be charming and friendly. Do your Taurus thang.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
It’s Monday and you feel like Col. Saito. “Be happy in your work!” Do whatever you can so that you feel better organized and in your own private world. Put things in neat little piles. Label things. Get rid of what is junk and no longer necessary.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
This is a playful, prankish day. (Who knew?) Enjoy sports events, fun activities with children, social diversions and the arts.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You would prefer to hang around home and cocoon among familiar, comfy surroundings. Many of you want to focus on a parent or family matters. So much to do!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Today you want your communications with others to be personal. And you want them to be meaningful — from the heart. You don’t want to waste time in superficial chitchat about the weather. Not today. (How’s your sex life?)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today your focus is on money. (Why is there always so much month left at the end of the money?) Back-to-school expenses will add up for many of you. You are also concerned with cash flow, earnings and potential, major expenditures. Oy!
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you very subjective. You feel a strong need to relate to others. (“Do you love me, really?”) It’s impossible for everyone to agree with you or see things from your point of view, and this might irk you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
It’s in your best interest to start this week off a bit low key. After all, both the Sun and retrograde Mercury are at the top of your chart, calling attention to you and stirring up frustrations, especially with authority figures from your past. Therefore, work alone or behind the scenes to see which way the wind is blowing.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your emotional relationships are important to you today. You want to feel close to a particular friend. In fact, you might even feel protective of this person or certainly supportive. (If they pay attention to someone else, you might also feel jealous.)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
For some reason, personal details about your private life are public today. This means that people in authority — parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs — are asking you questions or looking at information about you. (Just good to know.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You would rather be doing something exciting, stimulating and different — preferably far from home. And indeed, some of you are. But for those of you who are still in your velvet rut, do what you can to shake things up a little. Try something.
If Your Birthday Is Today
Actor John Bradley-West (1988) shares your birthday today. Rebellious, you want to do things your own way. You are witty, scientific and technically proficient. You are future-oriented; and calm under adversity. 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!
