Horoscope for Feb. 18, 2018


Moon Alert

After 6:15 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” to shop and do business. The Moon is in Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Count to three before you speak today because you have a short fuse. (You know who you are.) Today the Moon is in your sign, which happens for two days every month, and when this occurs, you become more emotional. But you are also luckier! (This happens to everyone when the Moon is in their sign.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you will prefer to work alone or behind the scenes because it feels better. You don’t want to be out there flying your colors. Au contraire! You want to hide and be low-key because you have been so visible lately, it’s a bit exhausting. Take a breather.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will enjoy a meaningful conversation with a female acquaintance today. You might discuss your future goals. You might explore your interests in a club or an organization. In some way, someone will help you clarify your future goals.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Personal details about your private life seem to be a bit public today. Do be aware of this, in case you haven’t noticed. Be self-aware, especially about the impression that you create on others. This takes a bit of objectivity and detachment. (A mirror might help.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Grab every chance to do something different today. You want adventure and stimulation, so shake things up a little. Do something different. Learn something new. Talk to people you don’t usually meet to keep your mind pliant.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You have to devote some part of your day to tidying up loose details about shared property, taxes, insurance and banking. Just do it. The things you avoid will accumulate and then hang over your head like the sword of Damocles. This definitely create pressure. Who needs it?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This Aries Moon is directly opposite your sign, which means you have to be cooperative when dealing with others. You have to go more than halfway. No worries! This is easy for you to do because by nature, you are diplomatic and charming.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Do something so that you feel better organized today. Set aside 10 minutes to tidy up some little part of your life. It might be insignificant, but you will feel better afterwards. Furthermore, it will plant the seed in your mind of wanting to continue to get better organized. Easy peasy!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A playful day! Interaction with children might be important today. You will also enjoy any chance to express your own creative talents. Sports, the theater and the arts will appeal. Have fun!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is the perfect day to cocoon at home. Have a second cup of coffee and read the newspaper. Relax in your robe and appreciate who you are and what you have. Give yourself a day of rest to get ready for the week ahead. You deserve this.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

It’s important for you to have a meaningful conversation with someone, perhaps a relative or neighbor. You want this conversation to be about something real and genuine. You don’t want to waste time on idle chitchat. Not today. You want to have a juicy provocative gab.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might feel a bit possessive about something that you own today. Don’t worry. This is just the placement of the Moon in your chart for today and tomorrow. No biggie. Make an effort to take care of what you own. Treat your possessions with respect.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Matt Dillon (1964) shares your birthday today. You can be intense, even argumentative. You have good lifestyle habits and value taking care of yourself. This is a year of building solid foundations. Simplify your life. Channel your energy in one direction. Exercise is important. Take up yoga, martial arts or jogging — any physical discipline to help ground you. Hard work and effort will pay off this year!
