Avoid shopping or major decisions from 6 to 8:30 a.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You’ve been popular lately, plus it’s Friday! You might want to escape from the demands of the outside world with a pleasant, relaxing time at home. You need to cocoon. You need some downtime.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
When talking to others today, you want to connect at a genuine, meaningful level. You don’t want superficial chitchat about the weather — although the weather ain’t so superficial lately! Your ideas might be influenced by the past.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Today you might identify with something you own. Or perhaps you will feel you have to defend yourself about something rather cursory where you really have nothing at stake. (Like how did this happen?) This is a good day to take care of something that you own by repairing or cleaning it.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
The moon is in your sign today, which makes you more emotional than usual. However, it attracts good fortune to you and makes you a tiny bit luckier than the other signs. You can test this by asking the universe for a favor. Who knows?
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Today you will welcome a chance to stay behind the scenes or off in the wings. You’re not being antisocial; you simply want to withdraw from the busy pace around you. Plan a pleasant treat for yourself — good food or good drink — because you deserve it. Salut!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’re involved with friends and groups today. You might feel protective or more supportive than usual to someone. You want their attention and indeed, you might feel irked if they pay more attention to someone else. (We’ve all been there — childish but true.)
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This is a curious day because you’re focused on your career and reputation to a certain degree today, and yet, private details about your personal life are public for some reason. Nevertheless, you will be sensitive and responsive to the needs of others if you have influence.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You want to get away from all this! Ideally, you’re on a plane heading for sunny weather. Why not visit an ethnic restaurant or go someplace you’ve never been before to get a sense of adventure and an opportunity to learn something and experience different vibes?
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You’re emotionally intense today. If you’re dealing with shared property or issues or disputes with others, you will be quite possessive. You might even desire something that doesn’t belong to you. (“My precious!”) Talk to others because you will enjoy schmoozing.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
The moon today is in a sign that is 180 degrees opposite from your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. It’s not a big deal. It simply means you have to make an effort to be cooperative and accommodating. You can do this.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You might find that you have to put the emotional or practical considerations of others before your own today. Yes, you’re going to have to suck it up. But hey, when the annals of history are written, is this really going to be a big deal? No — and you know this.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is a playful, fun-loving day! It’s a great day for a date or a movie. The arts, the theater and musical performances plus sports events and playful times of children are all wonderful choices. Live it up!
