Like melodic lines in a symphony, what comes around goes around – though everything sounds different in the arrangement by the second and third pass. The Aries moon will be an echo of a call initiated weeks ago. Did you make the right choice? The difference in the music may inspire a new move from you this go-round.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). No one knows why we have fingerprints, but you don’t need to know why to appreciate the mark someone leaves on your life and all the unique and quirky intricacies of that.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Should you remain friends with people who seem to fit into only a certain very limited section of your life? Of course! If you don’t worry too much about it now, your social life will settle into a good place.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll have the intentions of a classic overachiever. It won’t be enough to contribute; you’ll want to knock it out of the park. Doing so will depend on how accurately you can assess the dimensions of said park.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Anyone can spread bad news, but when you hear good news, you feel driven to spread it to a large number of people. The world will be listening, and they need this from you – so go for it.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You hate pettiness, but don’t confuse details with pettiness. Listen to the small concerns. Handle the nuances. In today’s instance, they will be very important.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You want to lift people up, not lean on them. And yet there are those who really feel good about themselves when you allow your psychic weight to shift onto their shoulders, if only for a few minutes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If someone looks at all interested in talking to you, or if geography is working in your favor, reach out and say “hi.” You’ll receive a gift, and it’s wrapped inside of an opportunity for communication.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You can’t be in two places at once, but through the magic of media, you can deliver a message to a great number of people at the same time. It would benefit you to do so, especially on a financial level.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You won’t be able to reason your way into good situations or out of bad ones. Instead, you’ll have to use your intuition. You’re learning to trust your extrasensory perception more and more these days.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Good news: This competition can have more than one winner. And if it can’t, you shouldn’t be entered. You’ll have more fun with the kinds of games that involve a multitude of people and prizes.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be in what entertainers call a tough crowd. If you can’t seem to put a smile on the other people’s faces, put one on your own face. Your good vibes will be contagious.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ve said what you wanted to say, but you need to say it again. Some people have to hear things twice, but most people need to hear things about seven times before they’ll totally understand and respond in kind.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You’ll no longer think of peace and relaxation as distant luxuries. This year, you’ll put your own happiness higher on the list – and everyone benefits. Love is introduced at parties and events. New friends help you make money in August. October brings exciting environments. You’ll set a new standard in November. Aquarius and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 1, 4, 44, 38 and 19.
MERCURY IN TAURUS COMMUNICATION SECRETS: Mercury’s change this week brings a shift in the way we communicate and handle our day-to-day dealings. When the messenger planet was in Aries, all things shiny and new had appeal. Now it takes more than novelty to hold our attention. Mercury in Taurus is about putting things to the test. If an idea is truly good, it will last. If a deal is solid, it will continue to benefit both parties. If words have substance, they’ll make an impact. If an item is quality, it will continue to perform over time. Mercury in Taurus will have us reassessing the fresh business and fun we recently decided to add to our lives to see whether it holds up under closer scrutiny.
What about love? Mercury in Taurus can’t appreciate the frills and poetry. Compatibility boils down to animal attraction and complementary lifestyle choices. Mercury in Taurus cares nothing for relationships that look good on paper. Under this cosmic configuration, love is a verb, not an idea. Furthermore, sentimentality and past good deeds don’t account for much under these skies. Lovers everywhere will be making sure that relationships contribute to their present lives. The lyrics to Mercury’s new tune are: What have you done for me lately?
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Taurus movie star Channing Tatum had such a hit with “21 Jump Street” and “Magic Mike” that he has now dedicated a good part of the year to the sequels of these box-office pleasers. Tatum was born when the moon, Jupiter and Saturn were all in the hardworking sign of perfectionism, Virgo, which indicates that he demands too much of himself to let the crowd’s adoration go to his head.
