Until 10 p.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” to shop and do business. The Moon is in Taurus.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Today you have strong feelings about money or a financial transaction. Perhaps your strong feelings are about something you own? If there’s something you want to buy, you’ll be obsessed about getting it. “I have to have it! Whaaat? They’re closed? Aaagghh.”
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Today the Moon is in your sign dancing with powerful Pluto. This gives your encounters with others a deep intensity. There is a lot of feeling involved. This could be positive; it could be negative, but it will be a lot of feeling! Pluto always brings passion to whatever we do.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a curious day because the Sun is in your sign, which makes you confident and fortunate. It attracts people and situations to you. However, the Moon is actually hiding in your chart, which means your feelings are hidden even though they’re intense! Pretty tricky.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
An interaction with a friend (probably a female) could be intense today. You both think that you’re right. In fact, either one of you might want to make over or improve the other person or tell them what to do. (Well, that’ll go over like a lead balloon.)
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
A discussion with a parent, boss or someone in authority (like a police person) will be intense today. Things will not be casual. They will be black-and-white. There might even be an element of sexual passion or flirtation present, which you didn’t expect. Whaaat?
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Discussions about politics, religion and race are intense today. In some ways, this is a poor day for these discussions because they will blow up into emotional, intense exchanges. And these are already emotional, intense subjects! Oy! Lighten up.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today you have strong feelings about something to do with shared property, inheritances, bills, taxes or debt. You might feel protective about your fair share of something. You might be obsessed about getting to the bottom of something. (“How much does he earn?”)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Be prepared to go more than halfway when talking to friends and partners today because the Moon is in your sign and that’s how it works. This means you have to be cooperative and adaptable. This might not be as easy as it sounds because conversations will be intense. Good luck.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You might have excellent ideas about how to make improvements to your job or how to introduce reforms at work. The thing is: Do others agree? You might also use this influence to improve how you deal with or take care of your pet. Or you might improve your health today.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Romance is intense today. Yup. We’re talking the stuff of movies. “Natasha!” “Boris!” This can be challenging because romance is already flooded with feelings of confusion and passion. Just think how many songs romance has generated.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Family discussions are intense today but hopefully, the result will be that you can make some improvements. These improvements might apply to family relationships or they could apply to home repairs or fixing recycling, garbage, plumbing and bathroom areas. Who knows?
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You are convincing today, which is why this is a powerful day for those of you who write, teach, act, sell or market. Yes, you’re PowerPoint on steroids! However, go easy on the little people. Don’t steamroller over them. You can also see the subtext to anything today. Nothing eludes you.
If Your Birthday Is Today
Actor Peter Dinklage (1969) shares your birthday today. You think quickly and you act quickly because you are instinctual. You have strong leadership qualities. This is a wait-and-see year — more slowly paced. You need rest and rejuvenation. It’s a time of cooperation with others. Focus on business and personal relationships. Look for ways to practice kindness and be helpful to others. Be calm, cool and pleasant.
