Moon Alert

Not until 7:45 a.m. Chicago time do we have the all clear to shop and do business. After that, the moon moves from Capricorn into Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For some, an echo of yesterday’s surprise is still reverberating. Possibly, a female friend did something you least expected or had a reaction to something? Meanwhile, this is a good day for you to think about your goals. Perhaps you need to shake things up a little?

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You are high visibility now, perhaps because something unexpected happened to you or affected you via a parent or a boss? In turn, this might cause you to change your life direction in some way? It’s actually a good day to think about your future.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is an accident-prone day but less so than yesterday. Yet again, travel plans are unreliable and subject to sudden change. Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues because people are touchy and arguments might break out.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Something unexpected might make you realize that you have to take a new approach to dealing with your debt or dealing with shared property or even dealing with an inheritance. You see the need for change. Well, seeing the need for change is step number one, isn’t it?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Yesterday a close relationship was disrupted by an argument or something unexpected. Today you feel the residual effects of whatever happened yesterday. However, you also can see what changes need to be made to avoid this kind of interruption.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Yesterday you felt interruptions at your work and perhaps something to do with a pet? Today you see the impact of those interruptions, which is why you want to resolve to make improvements so that you are in better control of things. (A wise response, indeed.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Relations with your kids might be dicey, perhaps related to something that happened yesterday? Certainly, social occasions and sports events were interrupted with accidents cancellations and delays. Today you feel the need to come up with a better plan to avoid this kind of thing.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

An important discussion with a female family member will take place, probably in response to whatever happened yesterday that was unexpected and disruptive to home and family. Today’s discussion might be the beginning of going in a new direction, which is a good thing.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Yesterday was an accident-prone day, and today you are dealing with the aftermath of unexpected changes. Perhaps this will make you more determined to be clear in all your communications with others? (Some people have a way with words — some not have way.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Yesterday’s surprise regarding your possessions, cash flow or finances is still with you for some reason. Perhaps you’re dealing with the aftermath of something? One thing is certain, you will resolve to set things up in a way so you’re not caught off guard like this again. (You can, at least, try.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You have a more personal response to whatever happened yesterday (or recently) that shook you up. The difference is that today you want to establish a system or a better approach so that you are not caught off guard again so easily. Smart!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Yesterday you were rattled about something unexpected that took place. (If not yesterday, then very recently.) Today’s new moon, however, makes you want to make resolutions to protect yourself from the surprises in the future. Good idea.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Singer Neil Diamond (1941) shares your birthday. You are easygoing, fun-loving and charming. You are both calm and passionate. This will be a more relaxed year for you. Because your interactions with others will be important, do your best to cooperate with others. Look for ways to be kind and helpful. Be open to engaging with others because business and personal relationships will benefit you.
