Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 7:30 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Leo into Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Discussions with bosses, parents and VIPs are not warm and cozy today; nevertheless, you impress others with your sense of duty and purpose. These qualities will actually lead to accomplishments for you.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Because you’re in a serious frame of mind today, you find it easy to study difficult subjects because you are focused about achieving your aims. Discussions about philosophy, religion and politics will be serious (and I say this most seriously).

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You won’t be frivolous in financial discussions today because you feel quite the opposite — frugal and serious. You’re ready to defend your best interests in discussions about shared property, inheritances, insurance and anything that you own jointly with someone else.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Don’t expect too much from relations with partners and close friends today. This is because today people feel isolated, even lonely. Nevertheless, they feel a strong sense of duty and are willing to tackle whatever they think they “should” be doing. (Got your list ready?)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You will accomplish a lot at work today because your respect for duty and obligation is strong. You will fulfill what others expect of you. You might use this same sober approach to health issues or even responsibilities related to a pet. “Just do it.”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Children might be an increased responsibility today. Likewise, you will be serious about making social plans or plans for vacations even though you are not in a frivolous frame of mind. “Somebody has to do this.” Don’t expect too much from a romantic partner. Relax.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Family discussions will be serious and will address responsibilities that family members have for each other as well as for the home or keeping things afloat. “Is that the wolf at the door?” An older family member might lay down the law today. (It will behoove you to listen respectfully.)

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a serious day. There seems to be a pall over everything. Your own thinking is geared to what you “should” be doing. Hey, you can use this energy to make plans to get better organized because you’re more concerned with form and order that you want to incorporate into your life.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Financial issues are serious today. You won’t be frivolous! Oh no. Instead you are concerned with saving money or buying practical, long-lasting things and saving for your old age. (You get the picture.) You want financial security.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the sun and Saturn (your ruler) are lined up in your sign, which makes you feel low-energy; nevertheless, it helps you focus on tasks that you think must be done. You’re concerned about your duties and responsibilities in the world. Don’t worry — you will accomplish a lot.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today it’s easy to feel cut off and lonely. “It’s hard out there without your towel.” Because you feel this way, it might be hard to relate to others because others feel isolated as well. Oy! This is just a temporary thing. Relax. All is well.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Someone older or more experienced might have good advice for you today. If so, it’s in your best interests to listen. However, someone older or more experienced might also say or do something that makes you feel diminished. Don’t worry about this. It’s just the spores in the air. You’re as wonderful as you were last week.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Julia Louis Dreyfus (1961) shares your birthday today. You are organized, systematic and practical. These qualities combined with your dogged perseverance help you to get things done. This year you’re winding up many things you began nine years ago by letting go of what is no longer relevant and moving on to something new and different. You are lightening your load to get ready for new beginnings!
