Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or making big decisions from 8:15 a.m. until 8:40 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Taurus into Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a goofy day; be aware of this. You’re eager to communicate because you want to talk. You have something to say. That’s why you’re on the go with short trips, errands, reading and studying. Nevertheless, expect detours and cancellations.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

This is a poor day for important money decisions. Check the Moon Alert. Just maintain a holding pattern, especially when it comes to cash flow and finances. Do not shop for anything today except food or gas. Enjoy your day. Book travel plans tomorrow.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The Moon is in your sign today dancing with Jupiter, which makes you feel friendly and warmhearted to others. Nevertheless, most of today is a Moon Alert, which means it’s not good for spending money except for food and gas. Tread carefully!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

This is a goofy day because there is Moon Alert for about 12 hours. On the upside, your creative vibes will be juiced. But the downside is that your plans can go South in a New York minute. Just cope. Fortunately, people are in a good mood.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is a great day to schmooze with others because there is a Moon Alert for 12 hours today. Although this is poor for efficiency and important decisions, it’s great for building creative ideas and having fun. Talk to friends and groups.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

In some ways, you are highly visible today, especially in the eyes of bosses and VIPs. Do not commit to anything during the 12-hour Moon Alert. Definitely do not volunteer for anything or agree to an important deadline. Just coast and keep treading water.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your mind is “out there” today so be careful. Don’t commit to anything or agree to important deadlines. However, enjoy travel and talking to people who are different. Explore new ideas and see new places because you’re up for adventure! Tread carefully because it is a Moon Alert day.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because your focus is on shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and financial matters concerning other people’s assets, be careful today because this is a poor day to make important decisions that impact wealth. Just fill your databank.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You have to go more than halfway when dealing with others today because the Moon is opposite your sign. However, be reasonable. Don’t stretch. Don’t agree to anything important because for 12 hours today, it’s a Moon Alert. Just coast and keep your head above water.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Work-related travel is likely today. This is a good day at work because relations with co-workers are upbeat and friendly. Nevertheless, because it’s a Moon Alert for 12 hours today, you can expect silly mistakes, detours and delays. Avoid important decisions.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is a highly creative day for your sign. If you work in the arts or in any creative field, you will find that it’s easy for you to think outside of the box. “I’m so smart!” Sports events will be unpredictable; however, playful activities will be fun.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This is the perfect day to cocoon at home if you can swing this. It’s a poor day to shop for anything other than food and gas. Many of your plans will go sideways today because when there is a 12-hour Moon Alert, things are unreliable and loosey-goosey.
