After 8 a.m. Chicago time, there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Taurus.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Today might be a rocky road for romance because you might impulsively do something that you later regret. Sudden exit — slammed door — with your purse forgotten inside. (Been there. Done that. Humiliating.) Parents need to be patient when dealing with their kids.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
If something is bugging you at home, you might overreact or be angry and create a greater problem. This is not what you want. On the other hand, you don’t want to be micromanaged or suffocated. Be as skillful as you can in handling this.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Pay attention to everything you say and do because this is an accident-prone day for you. Guard against physical (and verbal) accidents. Think before you speak or do anything. Nevertheless, something will interrupt your daily routine in a sudden and unexpected way. Get ready.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Don’t be impulsive when dealing with financial matters. (This includes shopping or spending your money.) By nature, you are a thrifty and careful with your money, but even you go off the deep end at times. Don’t let today be one of them.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Today you might be impulsive or tempted to do something rash. (This is not really your style, although you are often dramatic.) Contrary to what others think, you generally think before you act because you hate to look foolish. Be careful that you don’t do something that you will later regret. Easy does it.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You might feel restless or nervous about something today. This could be because something is going on behind the scenes or something is bothering you at a subconscious level. Make a worry list. What are you concerned about? Get it out in the open so you can face it. This is empowering.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Be patient with friends or members of groups today. You might be angry and feel the need to lash out? Or perhaps you feel the need to defend yourself? Ask yourself: “What kind of person do I want to be?” (If you’re angry at someone, you’re the one full of angry feelings.) Not good.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Get ready for something unexpected that might come your way from a boss, a parent or an authority figure, including the police. Do not incur their wrath. On the other hand, you might feel the need to break free from an oppressive situation. Do what’s best for you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Controversial subjects like politics, race and religion could create nasty disputes today. Others might find that their travel plans drastically change. Similarly, sudden changes to publishing, the media, the law and medicine as well as higher education might also occur. Yikes!
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Check your bank account. Stay in touch with anything important regarding shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and insurance matters because something out of the blue might create a problem for you. Stay in the know for your own protection. Information is power.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Be patient with close friends and partners today to avoid a serious power struggle. On the other hand, this could be a “final straw moment” where you decide to break free from something that is just too oppressive or too confining.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Protect your pets from accidents today. Meanwhile, work accidents or disruptions to your job might also occur. Unexpected news that is health-related might catch you off guard as well. Stay calm but be alert.
