Moon Alert

Avoid shopping or major decisions from 2 a.m. until 10:15 a.m. Chicago time. After that, the Moon moves from Pisces into Aries.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today is a balancing act. You feel increasingly impatient with others because this weekend the only Full Moon in your sign is taking place. Nevertheless, today you can have reasonable, practical discussions with someone about travel, further education and legal matters.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

You can get a lot done at work today because you’re in a serious frame of mind. You’re willing to do work that you might have postponed in the past. Furthermore, you are detail-oriented so you will do this work carefully. In other words, you want to get it done!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

This is a good day to have a discussion about children, especially their practical needs, and who is responsible for what. This same kind of practical discussion will pertain to social events, the arts and anything to do with sports.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Because all kinds of wonderful opportunities to improve your home and family scene await you in the next 12 months, you have to start to make some plans. Today is the perfect day for a family discussion about practical ways to improve things in the future.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You won’t overlook details today because you are in a practical frame of mind. That’s why this is a good day to do some future planning or have a serious discussion with someone, especially a sibling or a daily contact. Listen to the advice of someone more experienced.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

If shopping today, you will want to buy long-lasting, practical items because you are in a thrifty frame of mind. Financial discussions will go well unless emotions are a loose cannon, which they might be because of the Full Moon in Aries this weekend.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

This is a good day for practical discussions about future plans. It’s also a good day to talk to someone who is more experienced or wiser. They will be impressed with what you have to say, and in turn, you might learn something from them. Nevertheless, stay calm.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Research into anything will go well today because you have the persistence, endurance and stamina to keep looking for what you seek. You won’t overlook anything because you have an excellent eye for detail today. Go get ’em, Tiger!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

A discussion with someone more experienced or someone older might benefit you today. Or possibly, you are the wise sage dispensing advice? Either way, discussions with friends, and in particular discussions with groups, will be productive.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

This is a solid day to talk to bosses, parents, teachers and VIPs about future plans and how to do things in a practical, hands-on way. If someone older or more experienced offers advice, listen to this person. After all, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

This is the perfect day to study anything or finish writing a paper because you have the mental tenacity and endurance to bring to this task. You might enjoy lectures or learning from a teacher. You will also enjoy teaching, if this is the case. Good day to make future travel plans as well.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Now is the time to sit down and wrap up loose ends regarding inheritances, taxes, debt and financial matters that you have been postponing (and pretending that they don’t exist). They do exist! And today you are in the right frame of mind to tackle this stuff.

If Your Birthday Is Today

In the next three years, you will experience a time of culmination, success and financial accumulation. That’s why it is wise to settle your debts this year. This is also a social year that also deals with the results of last year’s changes.
