Horoscope for Oct. 1, 2018


Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or important decisions until 1:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This morning communications are wonky. Be mindful when traveling to work because there will be delays and shortages until after the Moon Alert is over. Cancel important morning meetings or postpone them until the afternoon. However, this morning is a great time to explore creative ideas!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Avoid important purchases or financial decisions this morning. Forewarned is forearmed. Once the Moon Alert is over, your day will get busier and become fast-paced. Communications with others will pick up in an upbeat way.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This morning the moon is in your sign but it is a Moon Alert. Allow extra time for breakfast, discussions, traveling to work and doing errands because shortages and delays will trip you up. Wait until after the Moon Alert is over to initiate anything important or to shop.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Go gently this morning because things are hazy. Don’t make important decisions or expenditures this morning. Wait until the Moon Alert is over. Once the moon is in your sign, ironically, then you are favored and life will go your way! (See above.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This morning is a Moon Alert, which is good for a confidential talk with a friend. However, if you’re dealing with a group this morning, postpone important decisions until after the Moon Alert is over. Whatever is initiated during a Moon Alert comes to nothing.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This morning is the perfect time to play hooky. It’s a creative time but it’s also a poor time for important decisions, especially financial ones. It’s definitely a poor time to buy anything other than food or gas. After the Moon Alert is over, a conversation with a female acquaintance might be significant.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You want to get outta Dodge. You need to escape! However, best not to act because this morning it’s a Moon Alert, which means your decisions are fuzzy and it’s a poor time to spend money on anything other than food or gas. Wait until the Moon Alert is over to act.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This morning you might want to deal with inheritances, financial matters, shared property, insurance issues and such. However, this is a poor time to deal with these matters! Wait until the Moon Alert is over before you spend money or call the shots.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Be prepared to go along to get along this morning. Avoid important decisions. Easy does it because there is a Moon Alert. Once the Moon Alert is over, it’s all systems go and you can address issues related to shared property, taxes, debt and insurance. All that red-tape stuff.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You might have a confidential conversation with a partner or close friend this morning because both parties are ready to let their hair down and tell it like it is. Nevertheless, wait until the Moon Alert is over before anything important is decided. Be smart.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your ability to be effective and efficient this morning is impaired due to the Moon Alert. (However, you can spitball ideas because your ability to think outside of the box is great!) This afternoon is a playful, fun-loving day. Actually, this is a good day to play hooky.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This morning is a wonderful, creative time for you if you work in the arts or you need to come up with fresh, new approaches to something. Nevertheless, wait until the Moon Alert is over to agree to anything important. This is a playful day.
