MOON ALERT Avoid shopping or making important decisions from 12:45 p.m. until 6:45 p.m. After that, the moon from Gemini into Cancer. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Keep an eye on the moon alert because this is a loosey-goosey day. It’s a tricky day for major purchases or big decisions, but it’s also a fun-filled day. New faces, new places and new ideas will enthuse you. (Aries likes to be enthused.) TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The day’s moon is about cash flow, money, banking issues, earnings and such like. Therefore, be aware of the restrictions of the moon alert because you don’t want to do anything you later regret. Forewarned is forearmed. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) For a good part of the day, the moon is in your sign; however, there is a moon alert, which makes you feel lighthearted and spacey. You want to play. Even though your efficiency will suffer, you will have fun. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Keep your head down and your powder dry because for a good portion of this day, the moon is hidden in your chart; furthermore, it’s a moon alert. That means that things are uncertain and a bit up in the air. Whatever you initiate might have to be redone. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) This is a great day to hang out with female companions. Your thoughts will be creative, original and ultimately, they could affect your goals. During a moon alert, your ideas are fresh and original — sometimes brilliant, sometimes dumb. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Be careful because you are under public scrutiny. Perhaps personal details about your private life are public? Because of the moon alert, you cannot control how this information flows. Be cautious and think twice before you show a reaction. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) This is a feel-good Monday for you because it’s all a bit up in the air, and that is exactly what you seek right now. You want a change of scenery. You want to be stimulated. You also want to learn something new and exciting. Go with the flow and this is exactly what will happen. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Your focus is on shared property, taxes and debt. Because you might ponder an important decision in these areas check the moon alert above. Tomorrow is a better day, just so you know. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You need to go more than halfway when dealing with others because the moon is opposite your sign. This is no biggie because it happens for two days every month, but it does happen. On the other hand, for two days every month, the moon is in your sign, which means you get your way. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your desire to be effective and productive might be sabotaged by the moon alert, which tends to make people indecisive and vague. A moon alert can also encourage delays and minor mistakes because people feel unmotivated. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) This is a lovely, creative day for you. If you work in the arts, you will be productive. In either case, you’re full of original, new ideas and a fresh point of view. You don’t need to act on these ideas, but do give them consideration. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) This is the perfect day to play hooky. It’s Monday and it will be Monday all day. Furthermore, there is a moon alert for a good part of the day, which means your efficiency will suffer, but your desire to play and create will increase. Take the day off if you can.
