Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping or important decisions from 3 a.m. 10 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Be careful with your money or financial transactions because today is a moon alert. Whatever you initiate will likely not achieve your objectives. If you buy something, you will use it a few times and then it will collect dust. Restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

The moon is in your sign today; but, it’s a moon alert all day. Resist the temptation to shop. Resist the temptation to make important decisions — even appointments. Just let things ride. Naturally, you have to take care of business as usual, but be mindful of this moon alert.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a loosey-goosey day! You can feel it. It’s why you feel indecisive and not sure what to do next. However, it can be a very creative day. It can also be a wonderful day to kick back and relax. Your choice.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is an excellent day for a heart-to-heart discussion with a friend, probably a female. You might share ideas about anything. You might also share your hopes and dreams for the future and give each other meaningful feedback and encouragement. That’s nice.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Don’t volunteer for anything important because you are high visibility, and very likely, you will be talking to bosses, parents, teachers, VIPs or the police. Do not agree to anything important. Be wise and restrict your spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Your appreciation of beauty might be heightened. Furthermore, you will be tempted to act on unusual ideas or go in a new direction. However, this is a poor day to do this. Enjoy flights of fantasy but don’t make important decisions and don’t spend money (except for food and gas).

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

The Moon Alert is specifically affecting one of your money houses. It is the part of your chart that concerns shared income, money from the government, taxes, debt, inheritances, banking, insurance issues — everything where you are entwined with other people’s resources. Make no important decisions.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might have a candid, heart-to-heart talk with a partner or close friend because people are more likely to let their hair down and confide in each other. If this happens, don’t get carried away and make a big decision or promise anything. Forewarned is forearmed.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Don’t make high demands on yourself and others at work because there is a moon alert in effect all day. People are indecisive. Shortages are likely. It’s a poor day to volunteer for anything or make important decisions. Restrict your spending to food, gas and entertainment. Nevertheless, it can be a fun day!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Although important decisions and practical work are impeded during a Moon Alert, creative projects are enhanced because it’s easy to think outside of the box. This is a great day for creative ideas in the arts, the entertainment world and working with kids

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Your focus is on home and family. You might have a meaningful discussion with a female relative. This is just fine. However, agree to nothing important and don’t volunteer for anything. Keep things light. Confine shopping to yummy food.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is an imaginative, loosey-goosey day for you. Go with the flow and postpone important decisions and important discussions for tomorrow. Don’t shop for anything other than food, gas or entertainment. Capisce?

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Caterina Scorsone (1981) shares your birthday. You are intelligent, and you have strong morals. You are kind, unselfish and practical. This year will be more laid back for you. Nevertheless, your relations with others will be important. Focus on how to cooperate with others. Look for ways to be kind and helpful. Business and personal relationships will benefit you, so be open to engaging with others.
