Horoscope for Sept. 21, 2018


Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping or important decisions after 11:30 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Well, this is a tricky day indeed. For the most part, it’s a poor day for business and important decisions. It’s certainly a poor day to shop for anything other than food, gas or entertainment. However, it’s a wonderfully creative and playful day! Choose wisely.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a great date day! In fact, it’s a wonderful day to have fun with any friends. Grab a long lunch. Get off work early and meet your pals for Happy Hour. People are in an exuberant, enthusiastic mood. Note: Restrict spending to entertainment, food and gas. Ka-ching!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will enjoy cocooning at home today and taking it easy because this is the perfect day to relax. It’s also the perfect day to play hooky. Business and work are plagued with silly errors, delays and shortages. It’s a poor day for big decisions. Don’t spend money on anything other than food or gas.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You’re in the mood to play today! Furthermore, your creative powers are teeming with wonderful, original ideas. Enjoy sports events, playful activities with children and social outings. Confine spending to food, gas and entertainment. Postpone important financial decisions.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will enjoy schmoozing with partners and close friends today because everyone is in such a great mood. That’s why this is a great day to party and socialize! However, it’s a poor day for important decisions, especially financial decisions. Spend money only on gas, food and entertainment.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Work-related travel might delight you today. Relations with co-workers will also be particularly upbeat and enthusiastic. Because of the Moon Alert (see above) postpone important decisions until tomorrow or next week. Likewise, confine your spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a squirrely day because of the Moon Alert. It’s a great day to have fun but it’s a poor day to make business decisions or shop. (Naturally, one has to get food or gas — and it’s OK to spread a little money on some fun.) Just kick back and relax today.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You will enjoy entertaining at home today because people are in the mood to party. (Trust me on this.) However, postpone important decisions or purchases because there’s a Moon Alert for most of this day. Keep things light. Spend only on food, gas and entertainment.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a poor day to make decisions or important plans. It is certainly a poor day to spend money on anything other than gas or food. However, it’s a playful, fun-loving day! Enjoy schmoozing with others. Laugh it up! TGIF!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Be careful today because your focus is on money and you’re tempted to go big whether you’re shopping or making a financial deal. This is not a good move. There is a Moon Alert for most of this day. Therefore, postpone financial decisions and major purchases for another day. Forewarned is forearmed.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your dealings with bosses, parents and important people are upbeat and happy today because everyone is enthusiastic. However, someone might promise you the moon. Don’t believe it. And don’t promise anyone else something, either because it’s a loosey-goosey day. Easy does it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Enjoy socializing with others today, especially people from other cultures and different countries. You might develop a crush on someone who is different from your point of view. However, postpone important decisions and purchases for another day. Check the Moon Alert.
