Moon Alert

We have the all clear to shop and do business until 11 p.m. Chicago time. The moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You are confident, especially at work. You’re in a sensible frame of mind and this helps you to plan ahead. This positive influence might also affect your attitude about your health; it might also affect your dealings with a pet.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a perfect day to plan a vacation or a social event for the future. (And yes, the future could be tonight.) Someone older might have good advice for you. Whatever you attempt, you will probably pull it off because the support that you need will be there.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a good day for a serious discussion with an older family member, perhaps a parent. They might have good advice for you. (You don’t have to reinvent the wheel.) You might also make some plans regarding housing or improving where you live.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is an excellent day to plan for the future because you have a solid vision of things; and yet at the same time, you are optimistic. This means there is a nice balance between realism and what you hope is still possible. Write down your ideas or share them with someone.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Business and commerce will flow well because for the most part, people are persevering, disciplined and practical. Nevertheless, there is a high note of optimism that pervades everything you do, which will make you ready to take a chance.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The moon is in your sign dancing with both Saturn and Jupiter. This gives you a nice balance between grounded realism and hope. This allows you to dream big, but at the same time, consider what is actually doable. As an Earth sign, you’re concerned with “doable.”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You’re a social sign, and this week has been a social week! However, a totally different influence coming in from left field will make you want to keep a low profile. You might want to watch everything from the wings. It’s your call.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You are high visibility and out there flying your colors! An important conversation with a female friend, possibly someone older, could be significant and helpful for you. This person might encourage you to dream big and expect more for yourself. Why not?

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You are high visibility, which means people notice you more than usual. In fact, personal details about your private life might be public, for some reason. (Be aware of this in case you have to do some damage control.) Nevertheless, you make a great impression on bosses and VIPs. Stay the course.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You want to shake things up a little because you want adventure and a change of scenery. Therefore, do something different. Go someplace you’ve never been before. Talk to people from other backgrounds. Go out of your way to learn something new.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

A gaggle of planets opposite your sign continues to increase your focus on partnerships and close friends; however, today you are also concerned with shared property taxes, debt and the wealth (or spending habits) of your partner. Get the facts first.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A conversation with a partner or close friend will be beneficial for you because they will either have advice for you or they will encourage you or both. Someone will give you some steady, practical down-to-earth input, but whatever they say will not create an obstacle.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Musician James Hetfield (1963) shares your birthday. You are crystal clear about your motives and plans. Personally, you are witty, friendly and sociable. You care. This is a year of fast action, change and new opportunities! Expect to meet adventure and stimulating situations. You will have chances to travel and expand your world plus learn new things. Embrace change. Let your personal freedom be your goal this year.
