Moon Alert

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

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will be more emotional than usual expressing yourself in your most personal relationships. (Marriage, friendships and even enemies.) This means no matter what happens — a friendly exchange or a conflict — it will be emotionally charged! Guard against “knee-jerk” reactions.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today you have to put your own emotional considerations second to the welfare or the demands of someone else. This doesn’t mean you have to play the martyr game, but it does mean that something will take precedence over your own needs. Stay chill.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today you are wearing your heart on your sleeve! Romance, flirtations and fun times with others will appeal, and you won’t conceal your delight and your feelings! (Relations with women will improve.) You might also feel extra protective and nurturing to others, especially children.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You might want to cocoon at home because you will enjoy relaxing among familiar surroundings. A conversation with a female relative could be significant. You might see how much your life is controlled by your daily habits. (Ditto for all of us.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You’re very keen to communicate to others. You want to go out to see people and also to be seen. In conversation with someone, you want a true bonding — something honest and real. You don’t want to waste time on superficial chitchat. You want a genuine exchange.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today it’s easy to identify with your possessions or whatever you value. This is why you might have a strong attachment to something. You certainly won’t want to lend it to someone. Or in terms of your values, you might find you are defending yourself in an area where there is really nothing at stake.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the moon is in your sign, for the second day. (It’s in your sign for two days every month.) This will heighten your emotions and give you a stronger need to belong to others and relate to them. The good news is the moon in your sign will slightly improve your good luck!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today the moon is hiding in your chart, which means likewise, you will be tempted to withdraw and keep your feelings secret. You will value your privacy and not feel much like socializing. You might want to explore mystical or spiritual disciplines. (The tarot?)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You will feel more protective to a friend or more nurturing today. This is because your emotional contact with others, especially friends and groups, is more important to you. You might even feel jealous, if a friend pays more attention to someone else. (An Othello moment.)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Regardless of what you are doing, you are more high visibility today, which means other people notice you more than usual. In fact, some people will be talking about you, especially about personal details concerning your private life. (Like what’s with that?) Do you need to do some damage control?

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

At a subtle level today, you long for adventure! You want something different and exciting to happen because you need some stimulation in your life. If you cannot travel, you might enjoy a mental journey through study or film or a discussion with someone else.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Today your emotional experiences will be more intense than usual. This includes your interactions with friends, family members and even the general public. You might feel possessive about property or something that holds memories from your past. (“My precious!”)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Rosa Salazar (1985) shares your birthday. You are warm and sociable but sometimes shy. You’re very intuitive and an accurate judge of other people’s character. You are a firm believer in the power of positive thinking. This year you are at the beginning of a new nine-year cycle, which means everything is up for grabs. Be courageous and flexible. Open any door!
