Horoscope for Sept. 19, 2018


Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or major decisions from 11:45 p.m. until 7:15 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Capricorn into Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful today. For one thing, people notice you. However, because this is a Moon Alert for most of the day, everything is a bit squirrelly. Do not volunteer for anything. Do not agree to anything important. Don’t try to impress anyone.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a playful time for you! (Lucky Tauruses are on vacation.) However, do take note. Travel plans will be a bit unreliable. Shortages are likely, and perhaps delays. Situations related to publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education are also up in the air.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Quite naturally, your focus today is on shared property, inheritances, insurance and the wealth of others. However, most of this day is a Moon Alert. This means it’s a poor day to make decisions in these areas. Therefore, just hold the fort. The cavalry is on its way.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Relations with close friends and partners are confusing today. In one way, you feel genuine, frank and ready to tell it like it is. You want to put your cards on the table. But should you? This is a loosey-goosey day. Pull in your reins a little and be smart.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Despite your ambition to boost your earnings and make money, today is a loosey-goosey day at work. Shortages and delays will be classic. Do not agree to important deadlines or suggest anything important because that will go south.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

With the sun and Mercury in your sign, this is a powerful time for you. Today is a day where your creative ideas might really fly! You find it easy to be original and think outside of the box.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a low-key day. Keep a low profile and work alone or behind the scenes. (That’s just fine.) But do be aware that family discussions or a discussion with a female relative will be relatively ineffectual today. Don’t expect too much from yourself or anyone else.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because this is a loosey-goosey day, you feel indecisive and a bit hesitant. You’re not sure what to do or which direction to go. When in doubt, do nothing. Just tread water.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Even though you are favored by bosses and VIPs, and you are confident and direct in your conversations with others; nevertheless, avoid important financial decisions and do not shop for anything other than food or gas. Wait until the Moon Alert is over.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

For most of today, the moon is in your sign, creating a Moon Alert. This is why you feel like a helium balloon adrift in the sky — no sense of direction, no certain outcome or focus. Fear not. Many people feel this way today. Restrict your spending to gas, food and entertainment.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a poor day for important decisions about inheritances, shared property and anything you own jointly with others, even though these are areas that interest you right now. Avoid all important decisions until after the Moon Alert is over.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A frank discussion with a friend could be meaningful today. Nevertheless, it’s a poor day to make important decisions or to commit to anything important. (Not until the Moon Alert is over.) But you might explore new ideas and future goals with a friend.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Count on enjoying the blessing of heightened popularity and warm friendships you this year.
