Horoscope for March 9, 2018


Moon Alert

Until 8 p.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The Moon is in Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is an adventurous day because you’re keen to expand your experience of life. You want to meet new faces, see new places, hear new music, try new things and explore new ideas! Admittedly, you will be vociferous in your opinion and debate contentious issues.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You might get caught up in a fight about shared property, inheritances or insurance. You have strong opinions about something, and when it comes to money, you are confident about your views. (And well you should be because you are the financial wizard of the zodiac.)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Be patient with partners and close friends today. Mars is opposite your sign, which makes you annoyed with others. Naturally, you think they are annoying, but they might not be different from how they are any other month. Not really. The difference is you.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re determined to get better organized today because you are motivated and motivation is everything. Tidy up clutter areas. Focus on both work and home. Arrange your life so that it runs more smoothly, which ultimately means you’re happier.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You want to have fun! Sports events, social diversions, parties, long luncheons, romantic dates and fun get-togethers are at the top of your list today. You might even be a bit competitive in these activities. (That’s because late in the day, the Moon is lined up with fiery Mars.)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be patient in family discussions today because it’s easy to lose your cool. Remember that anger serves no purpose other than to make everyone miserable. It clouds the issue so that no one wants to be involved. Be restrained. Remember your objective.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You will be forthright in discussions with others today. You will say what you mean and mean what you say! (Especially late in the day.) Keep this in mind so that you can avoid arguments, which might erupt because you are opinionated about something. Moi? Yes, you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Financial disputes might arise today. Or perhaps all this strong energy regarding finances and possessions means that you are doing something with your assets. Are you determined to buy something? Are you determined to earn money in a specific way? Could be anything.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have lots of energy today! You feel strong both emotionally and physically, which is why you won’t hesitate to go after what you want. It’s a great day for you to explore material gain or home improvements or both. You intend to use today’s energy to improve your life.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You are absorbed in some kind of hidden activity today. Do keep your eyes open because there may be someone out there who does not have your best interests at heart. Fortunately, friends and groups offer you divine protection this year.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You might feel competitive with a friend today or perhaps a member of a group. Since your reputation is so stellar this year, don’t do anything to tarnish it. Be tactful and diplomatic. Never forget that you attract more flies with honey than with vinegar. (But you know this.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your ambition is aroused today, which is why you won’t take no for an answer. You know what you want and you intend to get it. This is a favorable time for you regarding your finances. This coupled with your strong motivation guarantees success.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Oscar Isaac (1979) shares your birthday today. Because you value justice, you speak out against bullying and abuse. You are a spiritual and nurturing person. This is a year full of excitement! Embrace change and new opportunities! Be prepared to act fast. Your personal freedom will be a top priority. You will travel this year and do things to expand your horizons. Enjoy this busy, fast-paced year!
