After 2:30 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” to shop and do business. The moon is in Pisces.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Generally, you’re first in line. You get the first word and the last, because there’s no moss growing on you! Today, however, you prefer to step back and work alone or behind the scenes because it just feels better. You want to keep a low profile.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’re keen to interact with others today, especially friends or members of groups. You will identify with someone and be ready to sympathize with their situation, which is why you might have a heart-to-heart talk. You might also be involved with a group today.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Whether you choose it or not, people notice you today, especially bosses and parents. Do take note because this also includes the police. (Good to know.) You’ll find you carry extra authority in whatever you do or say.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
As a rule, you are a nester, which means you generally travel for a reason — business, family or a special occasion. Today, however, you want to do something different. You want some stimulation and a chance to learn something new! You want to meet new faces.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You are gung-ho now to achieve your mission (whatever it is) because fiery Mars is at the top of your chart arousing your ambition. Today your focus is on shared property, taxes, debt, insurance, wills and inheritances. We try to ignore it, but all that red-tape stuff never goes away on its own.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Because the moon today is opposite your sign, you have to be more accommodating than usual when dealing with others. Be prepared to go more than halfway. This doesn’t mean you’re giving up anything or “losing” — it is simply skillful means on your part.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Look around you to see what you can do to work more efficiently and run your life more smoothly. Start with small things. It’s funny how little things like making your bed or doing your laundry give you the impetus to tackle bigger tasks with confidence. (The reverse is true, too.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is a playful, fun-loving day, which means you need to get out and socialize! Enjoy fun activities with children. Be open to romantic flirtations and meeting others. Be patient with partners and close friends because Mars is opposite your sign. (By April this is over for another two years.)
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
No sign more than you likes to be outdoors. You love to have sky overhead. Today, however, you might want to cocoon at home because it suits your needs. Maybe you need a breather? Maybe your home situation demands your attention?
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Make a point of talking to others today, especially neighbors, relatives and siblings, because you need to enlighten others about something. You have something you want to say and you need an audience! Yada, yada, yada.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
“There’s money in them thar hills!” Money, financial discussions, earnings, cash flow and shopping are a strong focus for you today. With respect to your financial deals, remember that this year your interaction with others will actually benefit you. Keep this in mind.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Wow — the sun, the moon, Mercury retrograde and your ruler Neptune are all in your sign! This means the entire world is having a Pisces hit. (Surely there is a great shoe sale somewhere.) Ask for what you want because you just might get it!
If Your Birthday Is Today
