Moon Alert

Caution: After 4:15 a.m. Chicago time, avoid shopping or making important decisions. The Moon is in Pisces.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

This is a goofy day. Accept this and go with the flow. Do not spend money on anything other than food, gas and entertainment. Postpone shopping for anything from a pair of shoes to a new company until tomorrow. But it’s a great day to fantasize and dream about what might be.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

There is a Moon Alert all day, which means this is a poor day for important decisions. And it’s a poor day to spend money on anything other than food, gas or entertainment. However, it’s a marvelous day to socialize and hang out with others.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a dreadful day to make important decisions. (It’s a poor day to shop as well.) Be aware of the impression you create because people are watching. Stay relaxed and friendly. Don’t attempt too much. Be glad you can tread water.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Today is a wonky day and you can feel this. Don’t worry, it’s not just you; the whole world feels this Moon Alert. Satisfy your urge to do something different. Explore something new! Confine your spending to food, gas and entertainment.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Because of the placement of the Moon, you are interested in shared property, taxes, debt and the wealth of others, including inheritances. Nevertheless, this is a poor day for important decisions, especially financial. Therefore, lighten up. Take a long lunch. Enjoy this day!

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Be prepared to go along with what’s happening because the Moon is opposite your sign. This means you have to be cooperative. However, don’t volunteer for anything or agree to anything important. Don’t make appointments. Restrict spending to gas, food and entertainment.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Today you want to be productive and efficient. Well, this ain’t gonna happen. It’s a Moon Alert all day. Therefore, lower your expectations of yourself and others. Be grateful to get done whatever you can! Restrict spending to gas, food and entertainment.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This is a fabulous, creative day! You are capable of original ideas because you can think outside of the box. Accept invitations to party. Enjoy artistic people and events. Fun times with children will also delight. This can be a fun date day as well.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If you have a chance to cocoon at home today, grab it. Some of you might be involved with family discussions. Note: It’s a poor day to shop for anything other than food and gas, but a great day to entertain family!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

You’re eager to communicate today. You might want to take a short trip. Enjoy talking to others; however, because it’s a Moon Alert, don’t agree to anything important. Don’t make important plans. Do not shop for anything other than food and gas. Just spitball ideas.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Today the Moon is in one of your Money Houses; however, it’s a Moon Alert! The good news is you should write down your original moneymaking ideas. (Do not act on them.) The bad news is this is a poor day for financial decisions and spending money (other than on gas and food).

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

The Moon Alert is in your sign, which is why you feel like a helium balloon adrift in the sky. The good news is you’re in touch with your muse and your imagination. Write down your ideas! The bad news is this is a poor day to spend money or make important decisions because you might regret it later.
