Our Pledge To You


Georgia Nicols horoscopes for April 9

Moon Alert

After 4:45 a.m. Chicago time, avoid shopping or making big decisions. The Moon is in Taurus.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

You will encounter surprises today. (And someone might be surprised by you!) That’s because today is full of unpredictable events and spontaneous activities. You feel independent and perhaps even rebellious. If you can, think before you act.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a restless day for you because a lot of energy is bubbling beneath the surface of things right now. This is why you might impulsively say or do something, even if you yourself wonder why you’re doing it. (Whaaat?) Something within you wants to be free!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

A friend might surprise you today by doing something you least expect. Or you might hear surprising news about someone. Quite possibly, you will meet somebody new who is avant-garde, unorthodox or bohemian because, basically, your dealings with others will be full of things you least expect.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Your feelings of independence are so strong today, you will not like anyone telling you what to do. (Be careful not to be too lippy with your boss.) Obviously, do not impulsively quit your day job. You might have a strange feeling or inspiration to head off in a new direction. “I’m outta here!”

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Travel if you can today because you want to get outta Dodge. Ironically, those of you who have planned travel arrangements might encounter changes, delays or cancellations because today is full of unpredictable events. Expect to meet a real character.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Make friends with your bank account and know what’s happening in your financial arrangements with others regarding shared property, taxes, loans and mortgages. Today is full of unpredictable things that could impact these areas. (Gulp.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Partners and close friends might throw you a curveball today. They might suggest something you least expect or do something surprising. Alternatively, they might introduce you to someone who is a real character. Someone might also demand more freedom in the relationship. “Me, me, me!”

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your work routine will be interrupted by computer crashes, power outages, fire drills, staff shortages, equipment breakdowns and canceled meetings — just to name a few reasons. Guard against accidents in the workplace. Also guard against knee-jerk reactions when dealing with others. Yikes!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This is an accident-prone day for your kids so be extra vigilant. Accidents and surprising upsets might also occur in sports. However, spontaneous invitations to do something fun might be fun! Stay light on your feet so that you can go with the flow.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Something unexpected will change your home routine today. For example, surprise company might knock on your door. You might buy something unusual that is high-tech or modern for your home. Unfortunately, something might break down at home like a small appliance. Grrr.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Be careful because this is an accident-prone day. In fact, the entire day is full of knee-jerk, spontaneous reactions to everything around you. You’ll think of brilliant ideas because you can think out of the box today. However, a lot of your thoughts will be erratic, shooting off in all directions. Think before you speak!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might dream up brilliant, original, moneymaking ideas today. However, it is more likely that something you least expect will impact your finances. Therefore, when shopping, check your bill and count your change. Guard your belongings against loss or theft. Spontaneous purchases are par for the course.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Elle Fanning (1998) shares your birthday today. You are a doer. You are clever about taking new concepts and ideas into a concrete reality. You are also persuasive! This year is one of growth and building. Initially, this growth will take place beneath the surface, but it will begin. Next year will bring major changes. You can strengthen your financial position if you reduce your overhead now. Building for your future!
