After 8:30 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” to shop and do business. The moon is in Taurus.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Keep an eye on your finances today because something unexpected will impact your wealth in a major or minor way. You might find money; you might lose money. Something you own might be lost, stolen or damaged. You might have a brilliant moneymaking idea — or not.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Today you feel impulsive and tempted to act rashly. Your moods are changing rapidly, which will make you as surprised as everyone else. (You might be euphoric and depressed all before noon.) The best way to handle this is to do nothing. Ya think? Be smart and be safe.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You feel a bit on edge today — restless and nervous. Be aware that you might be sending out signals to others that you want to be left alone. There’s a tendency to look on the dark side of things today and be fearful or pessimistic. Lighten up. It’s always darkest before it gets pitch black.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You might meet a real character today, someone who is unusual, avant-garde or bohemian. Or perhaps, someone you already know will do something that amazes you. A member of a group might say something or make a proposal that is surprising. Be cool.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Relations with parents and bosses are unpredictable today. They might say or do something that catches you off guard. (This is a brief zinger, so for sure, do not quit your day job.) Don’t overreact. Do as little as possible and conceal your surprise. (Unless of course, you are the surprise.)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Travel plans will change today, almost certainly. Be prepared for this. Double check all details if you are traveling to make sure that everything is still on schedule. Allow extra time to deal with the unexpected. Expect cancellations, delays or the sudden need to travel.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Stay on top of matters related to banking, inheritances, wills, taxes and debt because something unexpected could impact these areas and possibly cost you money if you’re unaware of it. Stay informed. Whatever happens will have a brief window, which means you have to act swiftly.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Quite likely, a partner or close friend will throw you a curveball today and you will be surprised. They might demand more freedom in the relationship? They might want some changes? You might be introduced to someone who is different and unusual. Stay on course.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Expect interruptions to your job today due to machinery breakdowns, problems with equipment, computer crashes, staff shortages, fire drills or unexpected delays. Give yourself extra time so that you have wiggle room to cope with these delays. It’s the only thing to do.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Capricorn parents should be extra vigilant today because this is an accident-prone day for your kids. Meanwhile, social engagements might be suddenly canceled, delayed or changed. Conversely, you might receive an unexpected invitation to something. Wow!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Small appliances might break down at home today or minor breakages could occur. Someone unexpected could appear at your front door, or perhaps a family member has surprising news? Brace yourself for the unexpected. Don’t be in a rush. And don’t squat with your spurs on.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is an accident-prone day for you so pay attention to everything you say and do. Think before you speak and guard against knee-jerk reactions. You might hear surprising news from siblings, relatives and neighbors.
