Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or major decisions after 9:30 a.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re invigorated with mental energy today, which makes you forceful and to the point when talking to others. This is a strong day for those of you who write, sell, teach or act. Nevertheless, heed the warning of the Moon Alert above. Easy does it.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Be careful today because you’re enthusiastic about financial matters. Perhaps you want to make a major purchase. Despite your enthusiasm, this is a poor day to spend money on anything other than food, gas or entertainment. Do your homework and line your ducks in a row for tomorrow.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you find it easy to be yourself. You feel vigorous and keen to work for your own benefit. Take stock of whatever projects you have on the go. What motivates you? Decide what project you want to embrace. Think about new beginnings.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’re excited about your future goals! For some time, you have had new projects you’ve been nursing. Now you feel ready for action about what you want to accomplish. Consider them today but let them percolate. Today is not yet the day to act. Review things in your mind.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Do something different today to shake up your daily routine because you’re restless for adventure. You want to discover something new and explore new ideas. It’s a wonderful day to study or travel. However, be aware of the limitations of the Moon Alert. (See above.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You want to be more in control of finances and the resources you share with others. (This includes debt, taxes and shared property.) It’s a good day to work on red-tape matters and organize paperwork, but do not spend money or sign important papers today.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
