Moon Alert

After 7 a.m. Chicago tine, we have the “all clear” to do business. The Moon is in Aquarius.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a great day! You feel upbeat, enthusiastic and ready to take on the world. Conversations and interactions with bosses, parents, teachers and people in authority are positive, and dare we say mutually sympathetic? We did.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You are a pleasure-loving sign. You love your creature comforts. Today, you will love to go overboard pleasing yourself in some way, especially through the arts or sports events. You want to party, have fun and enjoy yourself! So what if it’s Monday? Can’t Mondays be fun?

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Discussions about shared property, inheritances and such will go well today because people are sympathetic and kind today. (One hopes.) In addition, your interaction with partners and close friends is warm and upbeat. Nevertheless, don’t promise more than you can deliver.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

You have lots of energy to work today, which is why you’re gung-ho about beginning new projects and getting stuff done. You have that Monday-morning- let’s-make-things-happen feeling. This is the perfect way to start the week. You might be a bit ambitious, but so what?

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a playful day! Yes, you’re a Friday person in a Monday world. Does it show? You bet it does. Enjoy a long lunch with friends. Flirtations, social diversions, playful times of children and sports events will appeal. A discussion with a co-worker will be genuine and sympathetic.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You’re raring to go about plans at home. Perhaps you have ideas for holiday decorations? This could well be the case. Whatever the situation, you have energy to burn and big ideas! Conversations with lovers (and children) will be supportive. Nice.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You’re in a positive frame of mind and you’ve got big plans! Yes, this is a wonderful way to start your week. Your sheer enthusiasm will get things going. Meanwhile, a family discussion will be mutually sympathetic and positive. This is a great day!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You start this week on a note of enthusiasm, especially because you’re happy about a financial situation. You might be pleased with your earnings or pleased with recent purchases. One tiny caveat: Beware of going overboard and spending too much money. So easy to do at this time of year.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have lots of energy to get ahead today, which is why you’re ambitious and ready to take on a lot. You also feel generous, even extravagant. There is the key word. Be careful because you might be tempted to take on too much or give away too much. Be realistic.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Because this is such a feel-good, positive day, your discussions with others will be pleasant and uplifting. You might share a confidence you would normally not divulge. In turn, someone might seek out your advice or counsel about something.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a popular day and you feel on top of the world! Enjoy schmoozing with others and interacting with groups. Anything related to travel will turn your crank. Private discussions might reveal a few secrets, but it’s all good. In your eagerness to please others, don’t overestimate something.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re in such a positive frame of mind you will create a great impression on others today. You look good, you sound good; therefore, you must feel good! Discussions with friends and group interactions are easygoing and friendly. In fact, someone might seek out your help or advice. Gosh. Is that fairy dust falling?

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Michaela Watkins (1971) shares your birthday today. You’re daring and you like to provoke others. However, even though you like the limelight, you are private about your personal life. Something you’ve been involved with for about nine years will end or diminish to make room for something new this year. It will also be a year of service to others. Good year to travel.
