Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race today because arguments will occur. People are short-tempered, and a good part of this day is a Moon Alert, which means things never turn out the way you expect. A lot of wasted time and energy. Oh well.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a poor day for important discussions about inheritances or shared property. First, a good portion of today is a Moon Alert, which means whatever you decide will probably come to nothing. And secondly, people are testy and too ready to fight. Ouch!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be patient with others today because squabbles are likely. Meanwhile, you are ambitious and you have an agenda. Nevertheless, during a Moon Alert, it’s like trying to push a piece of string. Nothing works out quite the way you think it will.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Be patient with co-workers today. And be patient with yourself. During the Moon Alert today, your efficiency and effectiveness at work will be compromised. Don’t expect too much from yourself and others. And definitely, avoid squabbles. (Anger only makes everyone miserable.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Parents and teachers have to be patient with kids today. Romantic partners have to be patient with each other. Even sports colleagues will likely argue. (“In the middle of the fight last night, a hockey game broke out!”) Patience is your best ally.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

A conversation with a female relative or someone at home might be challenging today. People are mildly frustrated and quick to anger. The trick is to lower your expectations of yourself and others. And don’t be critical. Everyone hates criticism.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This might be a frustrating day because you’re eager to talk to others. Perhaps you want to enlighten someone about something? Short trips and errands are also on your to-do list. Nevertheless, someone might really annoy you. Meanwhile, the Moon Alert today will make things anti-productive. Oy vey.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Money squabbles are tiresome. You might also have a dispute about something you own. During the Moon Alert, avoid spending money on anything other than food or gas to save yourself headaches in the future. Just stick to the basics today and do the minimum. “I showered; I dressed; you wanted more?”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Today the Moon is in your sign until the afternoon, and for good part of the day, it is a Moon Alert. This makes you feel like a space cadet. Don’t worry — you’re not losing it. Avoid arguments with others, especially female family members. Keep your head down and your powder dry.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

With Mercury in your sign now, you ready to communicate to others. Nevertheless, today will hold some frustrations. Something or someone behind the scenes might create a problem. Before you state your case, get the lay of the land first. Know what’s happening.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be patient with a female acquaintance today to avoid quarrels. You will be able to do this because with the Sun in your sign, you are strong. Things will tend to go your way. Nevertheless, a good part of this day is a Moon Alert, which means anything can happen.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Personal details about your private life might be public today, especially in the eyes of bosses, parents and VIPs. This might not be to your liking. Nevertheless, avoid an argument because it will accomplish nothing. Just skate lightly through this day.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer Neil Diamond (1941) shares your birthday today. You are easygoing, fun-loving and charming. People admire you because you are authentic, genuine and energetic. You are also sophisticated. Get ready because this year will be one of the most powerful years of your life, a time of accumulation. Whatever you have done in the past will now ripen. (2017 is also a good year to buy and sell.)
