Avoid shopping or making important decisions after 3:30 a.m. Chicago time for the rest of the day. The moon is in Libra.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Hold the phone! Today the moon is opposite your sign, which means you have to go more than halfway when dealing with others. However, today is a Moon Alert. Therefore, don’t make important plans. Restrict your spending to food, gas and entertainment.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
It’s a Moon Alert all day today, which can create shortages, delays and inefficiency at work. You don’t have a strong sense of direction and purpose. Nevertheless, a Moon Alert is a wonderful time for creative productivity and dreaming up original ideas!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This is a wonderful, playful, creative day for you! Make plans to party with others. Enjoy a long lunch. Play hooky from work if you can. Socialize with friends. Artists and anyone involved in creative activity will be productive. Enjoy fun activities with kids!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Today your focus is on home, family and perhaps dealing with a parent. Because of the Moon Alert (see above) this is a poor day to shop for anything for your home. Confine your purchases to gas, food and entertainment. Don’t volunteer for anything. Just chill out.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This is a busy, fast-paced day! But you might feel frustrated because it’s two steps forward, one step back. It’s hard to gain ground and be productive due to shortages and feelings of indecisiveness. That’s OK. This is par for the course today. Postpone decisions until tomorrow. (Ditto for shopping.)
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Be careful. Because of the placement of the moon today, you might be focused on cash flow, earnings and spending money. However, this is a poor day for big purchases. Best to spend your money on food, gas and entertainment — that’s it. Forewarned is forearmed.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Both the sun and the moon are in your sign today. However, today is a Moon Alert, which means you should postpone spending money or making important decisions until tomorrow. Only buy gas and food. Enjoy schmoozing with others and having fun.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Work alone or behind the scenes today because you will be best served by keeping a low profile. It’s actually a good day to play hooky. Restrict your spending to gas, food and entertaining diversions. Do research and gather information, but wait until tomorrow to act.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This is a wonderful day to hang out with friends and bounce ideas off groups. However, if you are in a meeting, convention or conference, this is a poor day to volunteer for anything or to agree to anything important. Do not sign important papers. Stay chill.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
People notice you today and they might follow your lead for some reason. However, from your point of view, this is a poor day for commitments. Do not volunteer for anything and do not agree to important decisions, especially with bosses and parents. Just coast until tomorrow.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’re eager to explore your surroundings and “get away from all this.” In fact, feelings of escape are strong! Actually, this is a good day to play hooky. Take a long lunch. Leave work early. Enjoy the company of others but make no commitments.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You might be involved with financial matters, inheritances or the wealth of someone else. If so, do not make important decisions. Don’t sign important papers. Restrict your spending to food, gas and entertainment. Research data and information but wait until tomorrow to act.
