Horoscope for Feb. 17, 2018


Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions after 4 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You want to be heard today. You have ideas you want to share with a friend or perhaps a group. This is because you’re enthusiastic about something. You have a warm feeling in your tummy about your future plans. Yeah!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Conversations and interactions with friends, especially females, will be positive today. The fact that you look so good in the eyes of others doesn’t hurt things, either. Everyone likes to hang out with a winner. Group activities will appeal. Have fun!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Travel and a chance to expand your world will please you today. If you can’t physically travel, then you might travel intellectually by discussing ideas and learning new concepts and ideologies. Work-related travel is also likely. One way or another, you’re pushing the sides of the envelope.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you’re keen to improve yourself and become a better person. (Can’t beat that motivation.) You might also be focused on shared property, taxes and debt. Nevertheless, you will enjoy traveling somewhere or talking to someone who is “different.”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Get more sleep because you need it. If you are mindful of the restrictions of the Moon Alert, you might do business regarding shared property, taxes and debt. You might figure out a way to use the resources of others to expand or benefit your home or your family.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be accommodating with others and go more than halfway today because the Moon is opposite your sign. It might be difficult to do this because people are obliging and cooperative. You want to roll up your sleeves and tackle some task at work or at home. You have an agenda!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

It’s Saturday! This is a playful day. Get out and schmooze with others. Enjoy the arts, movies, the theater and sports events. Romantic outings will appeal along with playful adventures with kids. Think about ways to improve your health.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Although your primary focus is on home, family and a parent, you are social and playful today! Accept invitations to party and schmooze with others. You might also want to entertain at home. It’s a lighthearted day. During the Moon Alert restrict your spending to gas and food.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your pace has been busy lately, which is why you might want to cocoon at home today. It’s the weekend. Do yourself a favor and catch your breath. Kick back and relax. You might also want to putter around home and do repairs.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You continue to be focused on money, earnings and major expenditures. If you’re doing any wheeling and dealing today, keep an eye on the Moon Alert. During that time, only spend money on gas and food. A conversation with someone will be frank and to the point today.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

“Merrily we roll along.” Things are fine for you with the Sun in your sign and lucky Jupiter at the top of your chart. Go out in full dazzle! Nevertheless, the placement of the Moon will draw your attention to financial decisions and perhaps shopping. If so, check the Moon Alert above. Be smart.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is a feel-good day because the Moon is in your sign dancing with Jupiter. This makes you feel content and happy with your world! You will also enjoy talking to others, especially people from different backgrounds and other countries. Jot down ideas because this is your year to travel!

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt (1981) shares your birthday today. You are patient, strong, hard-working and ambitious. You are also self-confident. This year is a fun-loving year! It is busy and social, and you will live life to the fullest! You will want to nurture the happiness and beauty around you. Be grateful for what you have. Focus on the positive. Expect increased popularity and warm friendships that will delight.
