Moon Alert

After 12 p.m. Chicago time, we have the all clear to shop and do business. The moon is in Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The moon is in your sign, which makes you boisterous and emotional. Play your cards close to your heaving bosom so you don’t overreact. The good news is that when the Moon is in your sign, you are luckier than the other 11 signs. Bonus!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you might want to cocoon at home or seek solitude in beautiful surroundings so that you can catch your breath and pull your act together. It’s an excellent day for a family discussion. You might putter at home and redecorate.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A conversation with a female friend could be important. When talking to others, share your hopes and dreams for the future so that you can see what they think. Their feedback might help you, or put a new spin on things for you.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The moon is at the top of your chart, which means personal details about your private life are public. (Good to know this in case you have to do damage control.) You might have a frank discussion with someone in a position of authority — a parent, teacher, boss or a police person.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Do something different because you want some adventure. Some stimulation! Grab any chance to get out of town because this will satisfy your urge for a change of scenery. You will enjoy learning something new. (Did you know that Reno is farther west than Los Angeles?)

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Take care of red-tape details that you’ve been avoiding. Go through that stack of paper related to insurance issues, estates, inheritances and shared property. If nothing else, devote 15 minutes to tying up some loose ends. (You’ll love yourself for this later.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Because the moon is in a sign that is 180 degrees opposite your sign, this means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Therefore, be accommodating, easy-going and helpful when dealing with partners, close friends and members of the general public. No problemo!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You might be involved with a pet more than usual. You might want to do anything that can improve your own good health, especially by boosting your wellness factor. We pay attention to our body when we get sick, but it’s wiser to pay attention to it before we get sick! Ya think?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is a playful, fun-loving day! Enjoy sports events, picnics, outdoor activities, playful times with kids, the arts and the entertainment world plus socializing romantically with your main squeeze. If you just decide to have a good time today, you’re halfway there.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You will enjoy having a chance to relax at home. You might also like to have a conversation with mom or a female family member. Basically, you want to hide somewhere with something nice to snack on. Good luck.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

In discussion with others, you really want to get down to some serious topics. You want the nitty-gritty. The skinny. You don’t want to waste time talking to people who are boring and talking about their kids.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You have money on your mind, which is why you are thinking about cash flow, earnings, your assets and basically, what you own. It’s good to know exactly what you own and what you owe because when it comes to money, information is power.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Sports reporter, radio host Sarah Spain (1980) shares your birthday. You are courageous and charismatic. You have a curious mind and like to be well-informed. This year will be more laid back for you. Nevertheless, your relations with others will be important. Focus on how to cooperate with others. Look for ways to be kinds and helpful. Business and personal relationships will benefit you, so be open to engaging with others.
