Moon Alert

After 8:30 a.m. Chicago time, we have the all clear to shop and do business. The moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You won’t sit at home getting dusty because you want excitement in your life! That’s why you will do something to make this day spectacular. (Be careful of being too spontaneous and ending up where you don’t want to be.) Parents be vigilant because this is an accident-prone day for your kids.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Stock the fridge because a spontaneous party might take place at home. Surprise company might drop by. Your home routine will change because of sudden, unexpected events that will be pleasant. You might buy something high-tech for your home? Could be anything.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a fascinating day full of possibilities. Expect to see new places, meet new faces and be full of new ideas. Impromptu short trips and encounters with siblings, relatives and neighbors will be exciting. Have food and beverage on hand so you can entertain.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might have excellent money-making plans because you’re full of original ideas about things! Meanwhile, keep an eye on your possessions and money because you might find money or you might lose money. Likewise, something you own might get damaged or stolen. (Probably not.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You seek out excitement and stimulation, especially through relationships. Romance will be exciting because you might encounter an unexpected flirtation. Woot! Ongoing relationships might face challenges because one partner, out of boredom, will stir the pot! Mature? Not so much.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The moon is in your sign making you more emotional than usual. However, it will also attract good fortune to you, which is why you will be a bit luckier than all the other signs. Meanwhile, you feel restless because you want excitement and stimulation in your life! Bring it on!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You might make a new friend today. If so, this person might be unusual in some way. Your exchanges with others will be rapid, unusual and stimulating for some reason. Perhaps someone you know will suddenly appear in your life and surprise you? (“Hi Darth.”)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be surprised by something that a parent, boss, VIP or even the police might say. (“Let this be a warning.”) Somehow your interactions with people in authority will please you. In fact, some of you might begin a romance with a boss. Hmmm.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Surprise opportunities to travel might fall in your lap. (This will make your day, that’s for sure.) Likewise, opportunities in publishing, the media, medicine and the law are also likely. Be aware that this window of opportunity is brief, so you will have to act fast.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Keep your pockets open because gifts, goodies and favors from others might come your way. Maybe even cash! (Cash is king.) You might also hear some good news regarding your partner or close friend, very likely news that would indirectly benefit you as well.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

In discussions with others, you will want to get things out in the open so that you have a better understanding. You might also do something new and different with a partner or close friend because you’re eager for new experiences and adventure.
