Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a good day to wrap up old projects on your plate, especially about home or family. Get your facts. Get your ducks in a row. You know that you’re great at beginning things, but it takes some discipline to finish what you started.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Conversations with neighbors, siblings and relatives will be important. You might discuss finances and possessions, or you might discuss something else that is pertinent. It’s a good day to finish up loose ends.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Wrap up details with your possessions, or money and earnings because you’ll feel better if you did so. In the morning, you are empowered; and after the moon alert is over, your focus on money increases even more. Ka-ching!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

After the moon alert, the moon will move into your sign, which will make you more emotional or excited about things. (This happens for 2 1/2 days every month.) However, you should know that this will also slightly increase your good luck. Bonus!

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This morning is a social time with others — friends and groups. In fact, it’s an excellent time to wrap up any projects you have initiated with others. After the moon alert is over, make time to enjoy some privacy, or sneaking away to your secret cubbyhole.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

This morning you are high visibility, which means others will notice you more than usual. (You might be able to use this to your advantage — or not.) After the moon alert is over today, you will feel a strong desire to talk to a friend or mingle with a group.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

After the moon alert today, you will have a good chance to get the attention of bosses, parents or VIPs — if you want to do so. People notice you more than usual and they might be more inclined to listen to you, as well. Hey, you might have the winning hand.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

As this day wears on, your desire to do something different and explore new ideas and meet new people will grow stronger and stronger. Ideally, after the moon alert is over, you might travel somewhere or meet new and unusual people because you want a change!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This morning you might wrap up some important details when dealing with a partner or close friend because this is an excellent time to do this. After the moon alert, you will be more interested in financial matters or something to do with shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Before the moon alert occurs today, you will be productive and get a lot done. After the moon alert, be prepared to go more than halfway when dealing with others. Compromise and cooperation will be your best choices. (Some days, that’s how the cookie crumbles.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a playful, creative morning for you — no question. Write down your clever ideas because you might explore them later. However, after the moon alert is over, you’re ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work. “I owe, I owe, off to work I go.”

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Use this morning to finish family business or wrap up whatever is on your plate at home. You’ll make good headway. After the moon alert today, you want to play and socialize! Ideas? Surely, something comes to mind.

If Your Birthday Is Today
