Moon Alert

There are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Batten down the hatches because your home and family life will be unsettled in the next seven weeks because of increased activity and chaos. This could be because of renovations, residential moves or visiting hoards from the hinterland.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You’re PowerPoint on steroids in the next seven weeks. Not only are the sun, Mercury and Venus lined up in your sign, but fiery Mars has now moved into your House of Communications. Look out world! You’ll be vocal and proactive!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

You will work hard to earn money in the next seven weeks because Mars is in your Money House. The last time this happened was in 2017. Not only does this mean you will work hard for your money, it also means you’ll spend it!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For the first time since 2017, fiery Mars is in your sign to stay for seven weeks. This signals increased activity! You will work hard and make it clear to others what you want. You will fight for your own rights and be physically vigorous!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Life might be a bit tricky in the month ahead because you might not get credit for what you do. And if there was ever a sign that likes applause, it’s you. This could make you vaguely irritable. You might give the wrong impression and undermine yourself. Be careful.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will want to define goals and actively pursue them because you have a strong ego drive in the next seven weeks. You’ll enjoy physical activities with friends, especially competitive activities. You might be bossy with groups. (Focus on cooperation.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your ambition will be aroused in the next seven weeks. (The last time this happened was 2017.) You will identify with whatever you’re doing and work hard to make it a success. Ideally, you should be on your own boss because conflict with coworkers could arise. Oh yeah, you’ll call the shots.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Some of you might encounter legal difficulties in the next month. Many of you will want to do more creative, intellectual work. You want to put out energy into expanding your mind and learning new things. Admittedly, you might be so excited about something, you end up defending your beliefs.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Disputes about shared property, inheritances, taxes and insurance matters are likely for many of you in the next several weeks. Partners might argue about jointly held resources. Meanwhile, your sex drive will be over the top!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Mars will be opposite your sign for the next seven weeks. (The last time this happened was in 2017.) When this occurs, it’s very easy to feel annoyed with those who are closest to you — dear friends and partners. Your best recourse is to demonstrate grace under pressure. Patience.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

You will accomplish a lot in the next seven weeks. However, the downside is you might work hard and not get credit for what you do. Argh. You might have to work for the benefit of someone else. (Because you feel independent, this is not the time to be a team player.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Expect an interesting, fun-loving month ahead because Mars will encourage you to be yourself and express yourself honestly to others. You will be more playful and prankish. You will enjoy amusing diversions as well as sports, athletic activities and fun times with kids. Romance will be energetic! (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.)
