Moon Alert

After 9:45 a.m. Chicago time, there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Scorpio.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Even though you have high energy, and you’re enthusiastic about starting something — go gently. You might overwhelm someone. Incidentally, this could work the other way: You might attract someone who is super enthusiastic about something!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You have a lot of energy to work today. In fact, you’re so enthusiastic, you will probably start to delegate and give orders to others. Easy does it, because they might resent this. Ideally, you will work best if you are on your own.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you need to be physically active, which is why physical, outdoor sports will appeal. If these activities are competitive, so much the better because you’re keen to win! This energy can also be channeled into working with kids. Romantically, you might initiate something exciting and different! Woot!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

A parent or older family member might have something to say today. Of course, you have strong views as well. Use your skillful means to work in cooperation with others to make improvements at home. This can be done if you don’t try to run things. Easy does it.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You are super enthusiastic, which is why you will easily inspire others to do your bidding. This is a great day for teachers, salespeople or anyone who wants to persuade others to agree with their ideas. Spontaneous short trips will delight. You definitely have something to say!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re full of money-making ideas that you might want to initiate today. If these are new ideas, wait until Mercury retrograde is over. (Be smart.) Nevertheless, you can still generate enthusiasm and excitement for your plans. You’re ready to work hard to earn money today — and spend it.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today Mars is lined up with the sun in your sign, which makes you ready to tackle something new! You want to begin something. You are also ready to compete with anyone. You want the independence to do your own thing because you don’t want anyone bossing you around. Definitely!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Some behind-the-scenes ideas make you excited today. Quite likely, this excitement will be obvious if you’re talking to others. Nevertheless, with Venus in your sign, you will present yourself with diplomacy and charm, even though you’re on a mission!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Relations with friends and groups are upbeat and energetic today! In particular, you will love to be active in physical sports, especially in a competition. (You want to win!) This same high energy will be apparent in meetings with others. Take it easy.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your ambition is aroused today, which means you intend to achieve something. It’s OK to go after what you want; but make sure you don’t alienate bosses and important people. You will need these people, so make the effort to give them respect. (Be smart.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Avoid controversial subjects today because you might go overboard due to the fact that you’re super enthusiastic. Instead, channel this energy into making travel plans, or perhaps learning or studying something new. Your best option is outdoors physical activity! Being desk-bound is not your best choice today.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’ll have no trouble defending your own best interests in discussions about inheritances, wills and shared property today. (That’s putting it mildly.) That’s because today you are gung-ho to make a statement, especially with partners and close friends. “Now hear this! Now hear this!”

If Your Birthday Is Today

TV personality Simon Cowell (1959) shares your birthday. You are a visionary with futuristic ideas. You are intelligent, witty and creative, and determined about going after what you want. Please note: Simplicity is the key to your current year. It’s important to build solid structures in your life both literally and figuratively. Focus on improving your health as well, especially through physical exercise. Remember your practical needs.
