Moon Alert

Wait until 9 a.m. Chicago time to make important decisions or to shop. The moon is in Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today and tomorrow your personal considerations will override everything else because the moon is in your sign. You feel a greater need to belong and relate to friends and loved ones. You will be emotionally giving, but you will also be emotionally demanding. (Oops.)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you want to withdraw from the busy-ness of everything around you and keep your feelings to yourself. You might choose to communicate your feelings to someone, but it has to be someone you really trust. It’s OK if you don’t feel much like socializing — so what?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your emotional contact with your friends is important to you today. You have something important to say because your contact with others is deeper than usual. You might also feel more protective and supportive to a friend.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today and tomorrow the moon is at the top of your chart, which means your personal life is on public display. An obvious example would be a public argument. (Well, there are more obvious examples, but let’s not go there.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Today you feel a strong desire to do something different. “I wanna be free!” You want to get away from your daily routine and travel. You love the stimulation of learning something new and meeting people from different backgrounds.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

As you deal with others today, your feelings will be more intense. You might also attract people to you who are more intense. (No, they will not be in tents.) You might want something that belongs to someone else or you might be involved more with shared property or jointly held possessions.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today and tomorrow your focus will be on your most personal relationships because your loved ones will be more important to you than usual. Ironically, this could promote conflict because you feel a stronger attachment to them. Be chill. Be patient. Appreciate who you have in your life.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today you have to put your own wants and needs second to the wants and needs of others because you will be in a position of service to others. (No matter what you do.) It’s not too bad. There is a marvelous old saying, “It’s a joy to labor for those you love.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Lucky you! Today and tomorrow the moon is in your fellow Fire sign, which makes it hard to hide your feelings. You’re out there flying your colors, especially if you’re in love! You feel nurturing and protective to kids and those you care for.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You want to cocoon at home today because you have a stronger need than usual to enjoy your own private space, especially among familiar surroundings. It’s a good time to contemplate your navel or think about your attitudes, your feelings and your orientation to the world around you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Communications with others are important for you today. You feel you have something to say and you want the room and the space to say. This is because you want to communicate at a “gut” level — not superficial chitchat. Female relatives will be important in your life right now.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today it’s easy to identify with your possessions and something that you own, which is why you feel a stronger attachment for them. This is also why you don’t want others to touch them or borrow them. (“My precious!”) Not an ideal day to shop.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Comedian Cecily Strong (1984) shares your birthday today. Friendships are important to you. You are loyal, truthful and also quite intuitive and psychic. This year hard work and effort pay will pay off. Start by simplifying your life so you can build solid foundations. Focus your energy in one direction. Physical exercise will be important this year. Explore yoga, martial arts or jogging — any physical discipline that you enjoy.
