Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to shop and do business. The moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today, you want to get right down to the facts. You don’t want to waste time with frivolous topics or light chitchat about the weather. You want to have that “gut level” of exchange with someone where you really tell it like it is. The Aries way!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Because you identify with your possessions today, you will feel attached to something. You certainly don’t want to lend it to anyone, especially someone you given birth to. Be careful how you spend your money today because it’s hard to be objective.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The moon is in your sign today, which gives you an advantage over all the other signs because it makes you a little bit luckier. However, it also makes you extra emotional. (You win some; you lose some.) Ask the universe for a favor — you might get it!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you will feel more comfortable working alone or behind the scenes because you’re dealing with private matters. You don’t want to tip your hand to anyone. Be extra patient dealing with women today (regardless of your own sex). You might not feel much like socializing.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

A conversation with a friend will be deeper than usual today. You will also find it easy to get along with others. In fact, you might feel protective or more supportive to a friend. You might also feel attracted to someone because you want this person in your life.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Personal details about your private life might be public today for some reason. People are talking about you. Obviously, let’s hope you have nothing to hide. On the other hand, we all have stuff to hide; it’s the human condition. You might be successful working with a group because you now how to respond to their needs.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You want to get away today. You want a change of scenery and a chance to escape boredom and routine. Travel if you can. Or be a tourist in your own city — do something different, even if it’s as simple as going home a different route. Visit an ethnic restaurant.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Clear up loose details about taxes, bills, inheritances and insurance. This stuff isn’t going to go away on its own, although you wish it would. Grin and bear it and face that pile of papers. Or maybe you have to make a certain phone call? It’s never easy.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Because the moon today is opposite your sign, you will have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. It simply requires a little patience, accommodation and tolerance. Hey, these are all qualities you have in abundance.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Whether you like it or not, you will have to put the demands of others before your own today. It’s just how it works. But you will enjoy doing a few things so that you feel you are getting better organized. Hmmm, is it time for the Marie Kondo method?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Romance will be passionate today. Actually, many of your feelings are on the surface today. Enjoy playful activities with children. Enjoy socializing with others. Sports events, the theater, social diversions and fun socializing will all appeal!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

If you get a chance to cocoon at home today, grab it. You are not being antisocial. You simply want an opportunity to relax among familiar surroundings and catch your breath. Enjoy a heart-to-heart conversation with a female family member.
