We have the all clear to shop and do business until 11 p.m. Chicago time. The moon is in Taurus.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You have strong feelings about money or possessions. You might be turned on by a money-making idea, or you might be worried about a financial loss — could be anything. Beware being obsessed about stuff. Relax.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
The moon is in your sign dancing with four planets, which makes you excited, intense and a bit obsessive compulsive. You might have to hold back if you feel you’re going overboard in a certain direction. Moderation is a wonderful thing but not always easy to achieve.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If you need to research something or seek out answers or look for solutions to old problems, you will be successful because you are motivated and persistent. You won’t stop until you find what you’re looking for. You’ll be like a dog with a bone!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You might attract someone to you who is intense and overwhelming. (“Hi Darth.”) Or perhaps, you are the overwhelming, intense person in someone else’s eyes? Either way, dial it down a few notches when dealing with friends and groups. Easy does it.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Conversations with parents, bosses, VIPs and the police will be intense. Super intense. Make sure you know what you’re doing because you’re going to make an impression. You don’t want to look like you’re coming on too strong. Be aware of what you say and do.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You want to get outta town. You need a change of scenery and you’re determined to do something — anything — to stimulate your world. Well, you can always be a tourist in your own city. Go to a restaurant you’ve never been to before. Visit a new park. Do something to break up your familiar routine.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You won’t overlook anything regarding taxes, debt, bills, inheritances and financial arrangements with others. Whatever you’re dealing with, especially if it involves responsibilities to others or dealing with other people’s wealth, you’ll be all over like a wet T-shirt.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Conversations with partners and close friends will be intense. They will be focused and perhaps obsessed about something, and so will you. You might combine forces and run away to join the circus. Or you might be at loggerheads? Just remember you are a powerful, willful sign.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You want to introduce reforms or improvements at work because you can see better ways of doing something. However, in your efforts to do so, you might come on like gangbusters, and other people will resist you. Think about your long-term objective. Easy does it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Romance is passionate today! It’s over the moon. Even if you’re not seeing your main squeeze, they’re in your mind. Likewise, you might be obsessed about sports events or something to do with your kids. Everything is relative — get things in perspective.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Family discussions will be intense because people are very focused on what they want, so much so that they can’t hear what others want. Don’t let this happen to you. Yes, you have your agenda; however, listen to the other side as well.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You are unbelievably persuasive and convincing, which is why this is an amazing day for those of you in sales, marketing, teaching, acting and writing. But don’t come on too strong! Sometimes to get people to listen, you have to whisper.
