Moon Alert

Caution: Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Past issues about debt, shared property, inheritances and separation settlements are back on the table. Ironically, for the next month, you swiftly expedite these matters, especially if they have been dragging on. However, today is a bad day to sign papers. No shopping either.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Ex-partners and old friends are back in your world! Hopefully, this is good news. (It might be an opportunity for closure.) Meanwhile today is a poor day for important decisions, signing papers or shopping. Restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

For the next few weeks, you are dogged by delays, lost paperwork, mixed-up communications plus computer problems and issues with printers and cellphones. Aaggh! Today is a poor day for big decisions or signing documents. Restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Old flames are back in your world again. This could be exciting — or not. Similarly, old issues with kids have returned. (This will continue for several weeks.) Meanwhile, today is a poor day for important decisions and shopping. Confine spending to food, gas and entertainment. Be smart.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Now and for the next few weeks, you will hear from relatives and family members you haven’t seen for a while. This is a good time to deal with old repairs and home issues. Today, however, is a poor day to initiate anything important. Restrict spending to food and gas.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

For the next few weeks, you’ll be plagued with travel delays, auto problems, late deliveries, late mail, confused communications and missed appointments. It’s Mercury retrograde! Meanwhile today is a poor day to shop. Restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

For the next few weeks, money delays will dog your steps. Check in the mail and deliveries will be late. This is a poor time to buy cellphones, computers, cars and trucks. Restrict your spending to food, gas and entertainment. (Oy vey.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today, Mercury goes retrograde in your sign, which means you will be aware of delays, errors, confusions, silly mistakes, misplaced paperwork, lost items, mixed-up communications and transportation delays. However, you can easily finish old business! (See moon alert above.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Your ability to do research in the next few weeks is phenomenal. Your efforts will be like a hot knife cutting through butter. Count on wrapping up old business during this Mercury retrograde time because you can. Today is a poor day to shop. Restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Old friends are coming out of the woodwork! Not only will you hear from old pals, you will meet people you knew from clubs and organizations for the next few weeks. Meanwhile today is a poor day to spend money on anything other than food, gas and entertainment.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Expect to hear from old bosses, parents and authority figures from your past. This could give you a chance to clarify things or show them what you’re doing. Meanwhile, today is a moon alert; therefore, restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might suffer from travel delays and confusion, especially with paperwork and ground transportation in the next few weeks because of Mercury retrograde. Meanwhile, today is a poor day to spend money. Restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment. Be smart.
