Moon Alert

Caution: avoid shopping or making important decisions from 6:30 AM to 9:45 PM EDT today (3:30 AM to 6:45 PM PDT). After that, the Moon moves from Gemini into Cancer.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Enjoy chatting with friends and relatives today. Likewise, you might be pleased with a short trip. Nevertheless, be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert and avoid shopping for anything other than food and gas until it’s over. Forewarned is forearmed.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today, three planets are in a major Money House in your chart, which means you’re absorbed with money ideas, money plans and possible shopping excursions in person or on-line. Please be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert (see above). Restrict spending to food and gas.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Today Venus, your ruler Mercury and the Moon are all in your sign, which makes you emotional and eager to talk to others. Venus also makes you charming and diplomatic with everyone. Nevertheless, avoid important decisions and shopping because of today’s Moon Alert. (See above.)

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

With Mars in your sign, you have high energy! Furthermore, the placement of the Sun right now makes you popular. Having said that, check the Moon Alert above. During this Alert, don’t volunteer for anything or agree to anything important. Don’t shop. (Except for food.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

You look great to others, especially bosses, parents and VIPs. Furthermore, relations with friends and groups are friendly and smooth. Nevertheless, be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert (see above). Don’t volunteer for anything. Restrict shopping to food and gas.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Because your sense of adventure is aroused and you’re eager to do something different, you want to explore new territory. However, for most of this day, there’s a Moon Alert. These are always fun, creative times but poor times for important decisions or shopping. Oh well.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert because right now, you’re focused on shared property, taxes, debt and inheritances. Important stuff. During any Moon Alert, always avoid important decisions and spending money – except for food and gas.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Close relationships are important to you right now. Meanwhile, many of you need more sleep than usual. (So say we all.) However, be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert for most of this day. Avoid important decisions and shopping. (Except for food.)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re keen to get better organized – no question. (Great idea.) Be aware that most of this day is a Moon Alert, during which there are often shortages and delays. Therefore, tread carefully. Postpone important decisions for another day. Write down your creative ideas!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Most of this day is a Moon Alert, which is a creative time because it’s easy to think outside of the box. Since you are focused on playful times, the entertainment world and the hospitality industry – respect your creative ideas! Note: Wait until the Moon Alert is over to put them in action.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Even though your focus is on home, family and your private life now, nevertheless, your ability to dream up creative, original ideas today is spectacular. Make note of your ideas but don’t act on them during the Moon Alert. (See above.) Be smart.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You’re keen to communicate to others because you’re dealing with a faster, more accelerated daily pace. You might be writing and studying more than usual. Be aware of the restrictions of the Moon Alert today, especially when talking to family members. Postpone important decisions and shopping until after it’s over.
