Aries (March 21-April 19)
This week begins with a moon alert, which means delays and shortages might be frustrating this morning. Allow extra time to get out of the house or get the kids on the road. Do yourself this favor. Nevertheless, this is a pleasant, easygoing day! (No shopping.)
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
This is a pleasant Monday. Enjoy playful activities with kids plus any opportunity to express your creative talents. It’s a great day for a vacation or to play hooky. A fun breakfast or long lunch will be enjoyable. Please note the times of the moon alert.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a great morning to enjoy a coffee klatch. However, if you’re on a tight schedule, allow yourself extra time because of delays and shortages. That’s because most of this day is a moon alert. (Gulp.) Nevertheless, it’s a mellow day.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
A cluster of planets encourages you to communicate with others. You want to talk, socialize, take short trips and explore your environment. Discussions with siblings, relatives and neighbors will be pleasant and upbeat. However, wait until the moon alert is over to shop or make important decisions.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Be careful because there are four planets in your money house urging you to think about financial matters and spend money! Not good. Restrict your shopping to food, gas and entertainment until 5 p.m. Chicago time. Be smart.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
A gaggle of planets continues to be in your sign, which is empowering! You are energetic, charming, diplomatic and proactive! Yes — a winner! However, be aware of today’s moon Alert and restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment until 5 p.m. Chicago time. Simple.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This is a low-key day for you. In fact, it’s the perfect day to sleep in and play hooky. (“I can do that stuff tomorrow.”) Be aware of the moon alert, which restricts spending and major decisions until 5 p.m. Just coast and mellow out.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
This is a wonderful day to socialize with others, especially in a casual, easygoing way. Keep things light because most of this day is a moon alert. Restrict spending to food, gas and entertainment. Enjoy the company of others and relax in group settings.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Because of the restrictions of the moon alert, don’t volunteer for anything. Postpone important discussions with bosses, parents, teachers and the police. Your day does not officially “begin” until 5 p.m. Chicago time. (Whaaat?) Forewarned is forearmed.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Feelings of escapism are strong. That’s why it’s hard for you to get down to anything and begin. Therefore, if you can, indulge yourself. Take it easy. There is a moon alert today that lasts until 5 p.m. Chicago time. Restrict spending money to food, gas and entertainment during that time.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This is a wonderful day to schmooze with friends and partners. Enjoy a lazy breakfast or a long lunch. You’re in a creative frame of mind but you are also relaxed, and your focus is a bit lazy. Enjoy this day. (Check moon alert above.) Don’t shop.
