After 9:45 a.m. Chicago time, there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Libra.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Today you feel sympathetic with a family member, especially a parent. Something within you feels the need to help a relative or listen to their concerns. Or you might want to cocoon at home and contemplate your navel.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Today you are more sensitive to your environment. You might wish that you could make improvements or help to make things better. You might also be lost in a fantasy world and spend time daydreaming.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
When it comes to money and your possessions, one of two extremes might occur. You might want to share what you have with someone who is less fortunate. Or, you might want to spend money on gorgeous, luxurious items. It’s a tossup.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Your ability to tune in to the nuances and subtle feelings of those around you is strong. (You’re picking up acid rock through the Mercury fillings in your teeth.) Because of this sensitivity, you will sense if someone needs your help. If so, you will likely offer aid.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You will be happy to find some quiet moments to enjoy some peace and quiet to relax. Or you might choose to explore yoga, meditation or some kind of quiet contemplation. You might also be happy to have an afternoon nap? It’s a gentle day.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
A friend or a group might inspire you to become involved in charitable activities with others. You might work with a friend to help someone in need. You might also volunteer your time to an organization that promotes the welfare of those who are less fortunate.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
With the moon in your sign, you feel more emotional than usual. Meanwhile, the sun at the top of your chart will call attention to in a positive way. People see you as charismatic, caring and compassionate. This is why you might be approached by someone who needs help.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Your idealism is aroused today, which is why you might want to help people in another country who are suffering. This same influence can also heighten your appreciation of beauty, which is why you will enjoy museums, art galleries and the arts and crafts of others.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Although you might be focused on shared property, inheritances and the wealth and resources of others today, you will feel gratified if you can do fundraising or steer resources and money to an area where they are really needed — perhaps the needs of children or suffering animals.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A discussion with a partner or close friend will be sensitive and mutually kind and receptive today. You will feel that you can be candid and honest with this person; and in turn, they will reciprocate and be candid and honest with you as well.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
If possible, you will use your influence at work to help a colleague or lend a sympathetic shoulder for someone to cry on because you are more tuned in today. And because you are more tuned in, you see how some people might be anxious or suffering.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Today you are in touch with your muse, which is why this is an excellent day for those of you involved in the arts or who perhaps want to express their creative talents. Romance will be idealistic. You will also feel sympathetic and caring about the needs of children.
If Your Birthday Is Today
Actor Forest Whitaker (1961) shares your birthday. Home and family are important to you. You are sensitive and caring. You are detail oriented because you are observant and analytical. In a nine-year cycle, this is your nine-year, which means you are wrapping up things you have been involved with for the last nine years. It’s time to let go in order to prepare for your new cycle next year.
