Our Pledge To You


Horoscope for April 11, 2018

Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or big decisions from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Aquarius into Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

It’s a crapshoot this morning. Something might catch you off guard. A conversation with a friend might confuse you or send you on a wild goose chase. Wait until the Moon Alert is over before you commit to anything important.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Don’t be alarmed if a conversation with a boss or a parent (especially a female) throws you for a loop this morning. The way the heavens are lined up, life is unpredictable and loosey-goosey. Don’t volunteer for anything. Wait until the Moon Alert is over.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Travel plans might go sideways this morning. Expect cancellations, delays and glitches. Likewise, school schedules and matters related to the law, medicine, publishing and the media might suffer from last-minute changes this morning. Double check plans.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Avoid important financial decisions this morning during the Moon Alert, especially decisions regarding the wealth and property of others or anything to do with shared property, inheritances, insurance and taxes. Things are unstable this morning.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

This is an interesting day. A partner or close friend will surprise you this morning. Or you might meet someone new who is a real character. Just watch the dance unfold. Don’t agree to anything important. Don’t volunteer for anything.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

You might find it hard to be productive and efficient this morning because things are unpredictable and fast-changing. This applies to your job, your health and anything to do with a pet. In fact, a pet might get loose and you have to spend time finding it. It’s that kinda day.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Parents take note: Your dealings with your kids will be unpredictable this morning. Be patient. Expect things to go haywire. Allow extra time for everyone to find lost items and pull their act together. It’s important to start your day with a warm feeling in your tummy.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Don’t be demanding of yourself or others this morning because there is a Moon Alert that will erode your efficiency. Just get the minimum done. If you can play hooky and relax at home this morning, you’ll love it. Get the kids off to school and go back to bed. (I’ll never tell.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Plans will go awry this morning, almost certainly. But it’s not a big deal. It’s small stuff. Once you wrap your head around this, it’s nothing to worry about. Later in the day, everything comes together once the Moon Alert is over. Until then just keep treading water.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Your mind is on money this morning and money is not the thing to deal with during a Moon Alert. Avoid expenditures. Limit your spending to gas, food and entertainment. Postpone important financial decisions. Check the Moon Alert above for guidance — to save you money.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This morning the Moon is in your sign but it is a Moon Alert. You can sense that things are a bit haywire. Don’t be too demanding of yourself or others. Cut everyone some slack. Allow extra time to get things done. Make no commitments to anyone until the Moon Alert is over.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

After the Moon Alert is over today (see above) you will feel in power because the Moon then moves into your sign. It will also be a bit of a relief because the morning is definitely loosey-goosey and unpredictable.
