Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 3 to 11:30 a.m. Chicago time. After that the moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Practical advice from an older friend might be valuable. If you are going to follow this advice, be aware of the restrictions of the moon alert. You might meet a new friend who is more experienced than you.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Discussions with parents and authority figures are serious and sober. You’re addressing practical, long-lasting issues because you want to make something work. Be aware of the restrictions of the moon alert if shopping or making big decisions.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a good day to study because you have the discipline to do so. You will also value any chance to learn something from a teacher or someone who knows more than you or who has more experience. (Possibly, you will be the teacher.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Don’t be casual about money or shared property. For starters, be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert. Whatever you do, you will want to do it carefully, thoroughly and in an economical way. Natch!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You might have an important discussion with someone who is older or more experienced. Or perhaps a partner or close friend knows more about something and is willing to teach you? Look for ways to benefit from the experience of others.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today you can benefit from the experience or advice of someone older or someone who knows more than you. This could relate your job, your health or a pet. After all, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. Why not stand on the shoulders of those who have gone before you?

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a sobering day for romance. Practical considerations will come first instead of soft lights, music and candles. (Oh well. It is what it is.) Children might be an increased responsibility for you today. Cope as best you can. You can’t be all things to all people all of the time.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

It will please you today to work to make your home look more attractive. However, today you will address practical matters in order to do this. Perhaps an older family member will help you? Meanwhile, family discussions might be a bit cool or detached. That’s OK.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You might look around you to see how you can improve your environment to make a run more smoothly. This is a good thing. However, because your focus is so serious today, it could create a strain with someone else. Some people might say goodbye.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If shopping today, you will want to buy practical, long-lasting items. However, first, you should be aware of the restrictions of the moon alert for this morning on the East coast. You want to be careful with all your money decisions today. (This is wise.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Although you still feel affection for people today, you will be hesitant in expressing your feelings. In fact, some of you might have to say goodbye to a loved one. The overall tone of today is one of restraint because you have to recognize certain limitations.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You won’t mind working alone today or being by yourself because it feels right. It’s the thing to do. In fact, this is a good day to do some quiet research or study history or dig deep for answers to old problems. (Someone older and more experienced might help you.)

If Your Birthday Is Today
