Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 5:30 to 10:15 p.m. Chicago time. The full moon peaks in Cancer at 5:48 p.m. Chicago time.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today’s full moon will make you feel pulled between the demands of home and family and the demands of your career. This happens for you once a year. With this particular full moon, you can’t ignore your reputation and career.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Pay attention to everything you say and do because this is a mildly accident-prone day because of the energy of the full moon. Of course, an accident doesn’t have to happen, but with the full moon, people’s emotions are heightened and this can cause distractions.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Disputes about shared property, inheritances, insurance, and anything that is jointly owned might come to a head. Or a difference in values between you and someone else might also come to a head. In this case, you might have to agree to disagree.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

The full moon is in your sign. (This is the only full moon in your sign all year.) Naturally, you will feel more emotional and more reactive when dealing with others. Therefore, be aware of this. Tone things down. Don’t overreact. Be cool.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Issues with coworkers might be touchy today. People are ready to bark at each other because they have strong reactions to whatever is going on. You will probably be able to keep a lid on things because this particular full moon is “hiding” in your chart.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today’s full moon can introduce tension between you and a friend, or you and a group. Keep in mind this full moon is a culmination of previous irritants. After it peaks, things will become resolved, diminished or manageable. (One hopes.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today the full moon takes place at the top of your chart, which means certain issues might call attention to you. For some reason, you stand out. In particular, bosses, parents and the police will notice you more than usual. This could be because you are at odds with someone.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because this is a mildly accident-prone day for you, be aware and mindful of everything you say and do so that you have no regrets. It’s a poor day for debates and arguments about controversial subjects like politics, religion and racial issues. Stay chill. Listen to others.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Financial issues might come to a head today. These could be disputes about inheritances or something that you own jointly with someone else. It might be a dispute about shared expenses? Or debt? Fortunately, after the full moon peaks today, things will be resolved.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Today the only full moon opposite your sign all year is taking place, which is why you might have challenges dealing with partners and close friends. People are more emotional during the full moon, and too much emotion can cloud one’s logic and reasoning.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Don’t worry if your efficiency suffers today, or you have difficulty dealing with coworkers. You can chalk this up to the full moon. Fortunately, this is a brief influence that lasts for about 48 hours. Stay chill and don’t overreact.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Try to cooperate with kids, friends and groups to which you belong at this time because these are the very areas that might be troubled by the full moon energy. This agitation will subside after the full moon peaks. Patience is your best ally.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Boxer, humanitarian Mohammed Ali (1942-2016) shares your birthday. You are an idealist who is inspired by lofty goals. You’re hard-working and persistent when it comes to achieving your aims. Regardless of how you feel, you present yourself as confident and optimistic. Service to others and personal responsibilities will be your theme this year. Take care of yourself so that you can help others. (You might get a personal makeover.)
