After 10 a.m. Chicago time, avoid shopping or making important decisions until midnight. At that time, the moon moves from Aries into Taurus.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is a tricky day because most of this day is a Moon Alert, which means you should restrict your spending to food, gas and entertainment. Nevertheless, you want to go overboard, spending money on luxury items. Forewarned is forearmed!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Today you feel warm and generous to everyone. You’re tempted to do everything in a big way, especially spend money. However, heed the restrictions of the Moon Alert. Don’t sign important papers. Don’t spend money on big-ticket items.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a fun-loving, easygoing dreamy day. You will enjoy your interactions with others and be tempted to promise someone the moon! You feel optimistic, like a winner! Nevertheless, most of this day is a Moon Alert, which means you should be careful. (See above.)
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You might want to help a charitable organization or be generous to someone who needs your help. This is a good thing, except for the fact that today is a Moon Alert and a poor time for important decisions or spending money except for gas and food.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’re the last of the big-time spenders. You’re not petty and you often pick up the tab for everyone. However, resist the urge to do this today because most of today is a Moon Alert. Don’t spend big. However, enjoy your creative talents.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Do not volunteer for anything today and do not go out of your way to impress bosses, (which you will be tempted to do) especially if you live on the West Coast. Once the Moon Alert begins, play your cards close to your chest. Keep your head down and your powder dry.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You have ambitious travel plans or plans related to medicine, the law, publishing and the media. This is great except check the restrictions of the Moon Alert above. Don’t give your money away today. Be conservative. Wait until tomorrow, which is an excellent day to act.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Today you are focused on financial matters or the wealth of others; however it’s a poor day to make important decisions after the Moon Alert begins (see above). Heed this morning. Wait until tomorrow because tomorrow is an excellent day for business.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Conversations with partners and close friends will be upbeat and cavalier today. Everyone is in a good mood and people are happy to see you. Likewise, relations with co-workers are positive and mutually sympathetic. Nevertheless, follow the advice of the Moon Alert above.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Be patient with partners and close friends. Resist the urge to go overboard. Definitely do not volunteer for anything during the Moon Alert, which you will want to do because you feel so upbeat and positive! Get the lay of the land but act tomorrow — not today. (Tomorrow is a great day.)
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
If you are involved in creative projects and have to think outside of the box, it’s a strong day. However, it’s a poor day to sign important papers or agree to anything important or to spend money on anything other than food and gas. But it’s a great day to party!
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Despite your optimism, do not make promises to family members today. Wait until tomorrow. In addition, restrict your spending to food, gas and entertainment even if you’re keen to make a big purchase. Wait until tomorrow.
