After 9 a.m. Chicago time, we have the all clear to shop and make important decisions. The Moon is in Scorpio.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Make friends with your bank account today so you know what’s happening. You don’t want to be blindsided by something because you didn’t check it out. Something to do with debt, taxes or shared property might suddenly change. It could trigger an argument with a friend or a group. Yikes!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Be patient with partners and close friends today because something out of the blue will blindside you. Someone might say or do something that you least expect. This could involve a brief conflict with a parent or boss. Either way, stay off your heels.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your work routine will be interrupted today by computer crashes, staff shortages, fire drills — something. This could be due to or perhaps trigger conflict with someone from another country or a different culture. Travel plans might also suddenly change. Give yourself extra time to cope with the unexpected.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Social plans might suddenly change today. Be ready for this. Squabbles about who pays for something or money from other sources might also arise. Meanwhile, this is a mildly accident-prone day for your kids so be extra vigilant.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Be patient with family members, especially females, because minor surprises will put people on edge. Small appliances might break down or little breakages could occur. In turn, this could trigger conflict with a partner. You get the picture. Avoid foot in mouth disease.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Heads up! This is a mildly accident-prone day for you. This could occur physically or verbally, which means you have to pay attention to everything you say and do. Avoid conflict with a co-worker. Confucius said, “He who flings dirt only loses ground.”
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Keep an eye on your money, cash flow and possessions today because things are unpredictable. You might find money; you might lose money. Squabbles about something related to a social activity or a party or something to do with kids might occur. Conflict during sports is likely.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Today the Moon is in your sign, at odds with both Uranus and Mars. This makes you rebellious, restless and impatient. Naturally, this could lead to an argument with a partner or a family member. (You need this like a fish needs a bicycle.) Patience is your best ally. Mum’s the word.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Something surprising, out of the blue or behind the scenes will occur today. You might know what it is — or if you don’t know what it is, you feel vaguely restless and uncomfortable. Don’t let this feeling trigger arguments with others.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
A friend might do something that surprises you today. Or you might meet a real character. Whatever happens might trigger an argument about money or possessions. Hard to say; it’s loosey-goosey. Be prepared for a few surprises. You can handle this.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Tread carefully when dealing with parents and bosses today because the energy is right for an argument or confrontation. That’s a polite way of saying you’re sort of looking for a fight. You might not even be aware of it. Hold your horses.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
Be mindful of what you do today because this is an accident-prone day for your sign. Just small stuff, but be aware. Avoid controversial subjects like politics, religion and race because they will be touchy topics today. (They’re touchy topics any day of the week.)
