Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to do business today until 10:15 p.m. Chicago time. The Moon is in Gemini.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a pleasant Monday – a good way to start off your week. Relations with others, especially children and romantic partners, are positive and friendly. Accept invitations to schmooze. Meanwhile, a conversation with a family member will be mutually sympathetic. If you can help – you will.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Your efficiency might suffer a bit today because you seem to drift off into daydreams and fantasies more than usual. Don’t worry. It’s just the spores in the air, or call it what you will. Nevertheless, moneymaking ideas that can ultimately improve your home are appealing.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is not the most ideal day to make important financial decisions. It’s a pleasant day; nevertheless, when it comes to your possessions and your finances, your thinking is a bit fuzzy. You are inclined to extravagance or absurd generosity. Don’t handle money when you’re feeling like the Queen of Denial.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today you feel strongly sympathetic to others, perhaps to the point where you will want to give something to someone even if you can’t afford to do so. Remember: True generosity is giving what is needed. Unfortunately, despite the laws of attraction, wishing doesn’t always make it so.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Be careful about self-defeating acts or attempts to be private or even sneaky. Don’t lie to someone just to escape telling the uncomfortable truth. If you do, it will have a way of backfiring on you. Fortunately, relations with friends and groups are friendly and upbeat.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You will find it rewarding to lend your efforts to charitable groups or people who are concerned about the welfare of those who are less fortunate today. This is because your sympathies are genuinely aroused. Do what you can because meanwhile, people will notice your efforts.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be careful in all your discussions with authority figures today – bosses, parents, VIPs, teachers or the police. Make sure you know what they expect of you; make sure you know they know what you can deliver. Make no assumptions and strive for clear communications.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Because your appreciation of beauty is heightened today, give yourself a chance to enjoy art galleries, university campuses, beautiful architectural buildings, parks and surroundings that inspire you. Someone might help you to promote your good name today.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you have important discussions regarding shared property, inheritances, insurance disputes or anything regarding the wealth and resources of others – be careful. Don’t give away the farm, albeit with good intentions. Be cooperative but maintain a healthy self interest.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re eager to communicate to others now; however, with Mars opposite your sign, you are easily annoyed by those who are close to you. Remember this. Consider this an opportunity to practice patience. After all, patience is a virtue. And you like to be respected.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is an easygoing day for the most part. Meet a friend or enjoy a fun lunch with co-workers, if you can, because you feel friendly and sociable. You’ve been working hard lately so today you can reward yourself – just a little. When time to play – you gotta play!

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

This will be a productive day for those of you who work in the arts because your Muse is with you today. Act on your ideas if they relate to the entertainment world, the hospitality industry, sports or working with children. However, you might just want to cocoon at home.

If Your Birthday Is Today

Actor Harrison Ford (1942) shares your birthday today. By nature, you are brave and daring. (Hero material.) Even if you start at the bottom, you will work your way to the top because you are goal oriented. You also know how to grab opportunities when they present themselves. This year is the beginning of a fresh, new nine-year cycle for you. Open any door! Start a new business activity.
