Moon Alert

After 4:15 a.m. Chicago time, we have the “all clear” to do business. The Moon is in Virgo.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today you are eager to get better organized in any way that you can. This includes work-related travel plans and dealing with foreign countries. However, late in the day, difficulties with authority figures might arise. Regulations about customs and borders might be challenging. Not again!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your approach to fun, social situations, vacations and playful activities with children is more serious today. As the day wears on, you might find that you don’t have the resources to do as much as you wish. Fortunately, things at work will go well. (No matter how much you child-proof the place, the kids keep getting in!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Remember to get more sleep right now because you need it. Today in particular, it’s challenging dealing with partners and family members because someone doesn’t want to go along with your plans. As a result, you might feel disappointed.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Life is more challenging today, especially at work. You feel a bit depressed dealing with siblings, relatives and neighbors because others are not as upbeat as they could be. You might also be concerned about health issues. Oy vey. It happens.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is not an ideal day to throw money around on luxurious items, especially related to vacations, social escapes, fun diversions and sports. In the end, you will spend too much and just regret blowing your hard-earned money. Be circumspect. A bird in the hand … (can get quite messy).

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Today the Moon is in your sign, which makes you more emotional than usual. However, what makes life challenging today is that Neptune, Saturn and the Sun are at odds with your Moon. That’s why life feels hard. Fear not — this is a fleeting thing. Tomorrow is better!

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

It’s easy to feel glum today, but hey, this is small potatoes. You might be disappointed in someone or something but, by tomorrow, life will look much better. Do something to make yourself feel pampered. Start to planning how you can improve your wardrobe.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Your focus is on money, earnings and cash flow. Nevertheless, a conversation with a female, especially in a group, might discourage you, financially speaking. Perhaps you had hopes about doing something and then reality set in? Reality is so limiting. Sigh, where there’s a will, I wanna be in it.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

This continues to be a powerful time for you with the Sun, Mercury and Saturn in your sign. This is why you’re focused and serious about things right now. Today, however, you have to deal with some confusion with a female authority figure. (“How many fingers do you see?”)

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your ambition is aroused and your ability to schmooze and charm bosses, teachers and people in authority is excellent. Woo hoo! However, today, for some reason, you have self-doubts and second thoughts about something. This will pass, especially if you drink a lot of water.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

An older female friend might disagree with you about financial matters or something to do with a possession that you own. This could be with a personal friend or it might occur in a group situation. Just know that by tomorrow things are more relaxed.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Relations with parents and authority figures are stressed today, perhaps because a female is disappointed in you? Or perhaps, you are disappointed in them? Don’t act on this disappointment right now because by tomorrow, it’s gone.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actress Lucy Liu (1968) shares your birthday today. You are high-spirited and dramatic. You seem to be larger than life. People hero-worship you, while you hero-worship others. Because you will enjoy financial accumulation in the next three years, settle your debts this year. If you clear away indebtedness you will be in the best position possible. In order to grow in the future, consolidate your affairs this year.
