Taurus (April 20-May 20): The moon is in your money house, which encourages money-making ideas and spending on beautiful things. But lo! Check the moon alert, especially for Pacific time. When the moon alert begins, restrict spending to food and gas.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): The moon is in your sign, which heightens your emotions and your reactions. (Don’t worry, this is nothing you can’t handle.) It happens for two days every month to everyone. However, today there is a moon alert. Be mindful of this!
Cancer (June 21-July 22): This is a strong time for you because the sun is in your sign and Mars is at the top of your chart arousing your ambition. Nevertheless, the moon is your ruler and today the moon alert begins at 4 p.m. Chicago time. Be careful!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): A heart-toheart conversation with a female friend will be important to you. It might be important to this other person as well. After the moon alert comes into effect, don’t agree to anything important. Just listen. Just talk.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You are high visibility because the moon is at the top of your chart. This means people know personal details about your private life today. If you are approached with a proposal or an important decision, do not act after 4 p.m.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your desire to escape and travel is strong today. Do what you can to get a change of scenery. Keep things light. Learn something new. Talk to people from other backgrounds or different countries. Don’t shop or agree to nothing important after 4 p.m.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Although you want to travel and broaden your horizons, today you are focused on the assets or property of your partner or someone else. Because of the moon alert, avoid spending money or making important decisions after 4 p.m.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): You have to be accommodating with others and be prepared to go more than halfway because today the moon is in the sign that is 180 degrees opposite your sign.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): There’s a lot of energy happening at home, and today you’re focused on your work, your job or your health. Nevertheless, everything gets loosey-goosey after 4 p.m., so be aware of this. When the moon alert begins, restrict spending to food and gas.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): This is a fabulous, creative day! If you work in the arts, the hospitality industry or the entertainment world, take your ideas seriously. Write them down. Today it is easy to think outside of the box. Tomorrow you can review your dreams and see if any of them look doable.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You might want to cocoon at home today because it feels good. Life has been playful, flirtatious and fun-loving but hey, you need to catch your breath. Once you are rejuvenated you can get back on the dance floor! (Gasp.)
