Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions until 12:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Ex-partners and old friends are back in your world again. You might encounter these people in person or through social media. Perhaps, you are thinking about them or they appear in your dreams? Be patient with those who are closest to you at this time.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Allow extra time in your work or your job because Mercury retrograde might trip you up. This is why you are encountering silly errors, mixed-up communications, missed appointments and misplaced paperwork. Late deliveries and delays will also be par for the course. (Yikes!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Expect to hear from old flames either today or sometime in the next few weeks. (This might already have happened.) You might encounter these people in person or online or in your thoughts or dreams. Some kind of previous scenario with your kids might also recur.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today (or this week) you might be in contact with relatives you haven’t seen for a while. They might be visiting you. Family reunions might also be taking place because it’s old home week for many of you due to the influence of Mercury retrograde.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This current Mercury retrograde will wreak havoc with transportation plans for your sign. Be proactive about taking care of your car. Allow extra time when taking public transportation. Confused communications, missed appointments and misplaced items are classic now. Frustrating? Yes!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You have a lot of energy now because the sun and fiery Mars are in your sign. However, Mercury retrograde is also taking place in Libra, which means people from your past are back in your world. In addition, it’s easy for you to forget things, misplace things, lose things and miss appointments. Courage!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Mercury retrograde is taking place at the top of your chart, which means you might be in touch with parents, bosses and teachers as well as authority figures from your past. This could be a learning experience for you. Or perhaps you want to avoid these people? Either way, it’s your choice.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a wonderful day (and week) to finish important papers, manuscripts and studies. In fact, it will be easy to study the past or study history or do research based on information from the past. However, travel plans might be delayed or canceled.
