Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Scorpio into Sagittarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You’re determined to get a lot done despite the fuzzy influence of the moon alert. (See above.) Take care of red-tape details related to shared property and finances, but wait until the moon alert is over to act.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If you are cooperative with others, this day will be easier for you. Meanwhile, during the moon alert, don’t agree to anything important and don’t volunteer for anything. Do what you can to alleviate home pressures.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Financial matters, cash flow, earnings and purchases have your attention. Be aware of the moon alert and restrict your spending to food and gas. This is a creative day for writers and those who communicate for a living.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You are empowered because the sun and Mercury are in your sign. In fact, during the moon alert, you will be very creative, sociable and friendly. However, for shopping and financial decisions, wait until the moon alert is over.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You have high energy because fiery Mars is still in your sign. Fortunately, Venus is in your sign as well and this will soften your aggressiveness. (They won’t even see you coming.) Cocoon at home today, especially during the moon alert.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This is a friendly week! Enjoy schmoozing with others, especially younger people. (Some of you are dabbling in a secret romance.) During the moon alert today, make no promises to others and don’t agree to anything important, which you will be tempted to do.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Parents, bosses, teachers and authority figures continue to admire you now, which is why this is the time to make your pitch and go after what you want. However, note the moon alert today and avoid asking for anything during that time.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This week begins with the moon in your sign, which is an indication that you’re primed to go after what you want. Admittedly, there is a moon alert today during which you might feel adrift and indecisive. Restrict spending to food and gas at that time.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

After the moon alert is over today, the moon will move into your sign and this will give you a slight advantage over all the other signs. Of course, it might make you more emotional than usual. Nevertheless, when the moon is in your sign (for two days every month) always go after what you want.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Remember that you need more sleep this week. This is a fact. (It happens for four weeks once a year.) If you’re negotiating today or later this week, you have the upper hand, which is good news! However, do not negotiate or agree to anything important during today’s moon alert.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This will be a productive week for you! Today in particular, bosses, parents, teachers and the police notice you more than usual. (Oops. Be aware.) You must also be aware of the limitations of the moon alert today, and agree to nothing important during that time. Don’t shop.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

A playful week! Nevertheless, you’re also keen to work and be productive. Today you want to do something different so that you feel stimulated! However, be aware of the limitations of the moon alert. During that time, restrict spending to food and gas.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Jared Padaleki (1982) shares your birthday. Even though you are cautious and guarded, you are proud, persistent and courageous. Many of you have a mysterious allure that is appealing to others. This is a year of building, construction and hard work for you. You will achieve much. You might literally build in a physical sense. You will certainly introduce more structure into your personal world.
