Handle business, send packages and make calls. In a matter of days, Mercury in Pisces will complicate matters with retrograde illusions and mirages. Just as dreams often reveal our subconscious fears and desires, this Mercury retrograde will show us who we are on the inside through the fantasies we project.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). There’s a fine line between good use of electronic devices and excessive dependence on them. You’ll draw a healthy boundary for yourself and your family in this regard.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Your neighbors will be a topic of interest. What are they doing in there? Probably nothing as interesting as it seems from the outside. Anyway, it’s more fun to wonder than to ask.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Improvements in your personal life will happen over time. But you can already see the early signs that things are getting better, and you should be very encouraged by that.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You like to make people laugh; it’s one of the ways you experience their love. So surround yourself with those intelligent, lighthearted types who have an obvious sense of humor.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Think of the profound impact you’ve already had on your surroundings. You’ve changed the world in many ways without even knowing it. For instance, there are people who wouldn’t know each other at all if it weren’t for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Unfortunately, the solution to one problem is the seed of another problem. Your job is to think further into the future than the people around you and weigh potential consequences against today’s options.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Who completes you? You are wise not to be dependent on one person; it’s not a one-person job. You feel whole when you give your attention to a dozen different interests and relationships.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People are the real treasures of your world, and you value them more than anything material. It doesn’t take big gestures to make this clear. There’s a quiet heroism in your patient, friendly attitude.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You have your eye on an upgrade that will enable you to show up for work in style. This improvement will likely be more expensive than you anticipated, though, so start saving now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). People are searching for a sense of security, but that shouldn’t all fall on you. Staying true to your word is easier if you don’t give your word in the first place. Avoid making promises; it will be better for everyone.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s not every day that perfect partnerships come together. That’s why when you sense that an arrangement is going to work well, you should act on it immediately.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Life seems sweeter when affections are reciprocated, but this is not entirely necessary for your happiness. Right now, you’re happy to give and love without worrying about how it will come back.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. This year brings a breakthrough. When you get stuck, you won’t agonize like before. You’ll just take the next small step and break free. Better earnings start immediately. In April, you’ll compete for a new position. May shows you how others live, and you’ll share and make a difference. June and July bring hot dates. Cancer and Virgo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 4, 40, 12, 15 and 18.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I’m a Pisces who has decided that this is my year to find love. I’m dating regularly already and have even tried speed dating. Do you have any advice for finding the right one?”
Upon meeting someone new, you instantaneously begin to process hundreds upon hundreds of bits of information about them in a manner of seconds. Your Piscean perception misses nothing. You respond to the scent of them, their stance, body language, clothing, facial cues, tone of voice, words and more. Each observation is logged, categorized and calculated with lightning speed. What you come away with is a general impression that’s deeper than words can express. You may think you know the reasons why you feel the way you do about a new person, but it is truer that you draw your conclusion unreasonably. Often, you think you are being rational, when actually you are acting on a level that’s deeper than logic or even emotions. You are responding instead to a combination of intuitive factors: an animal instinct in your body and a spiritual knowing. It is when you honor the messages you receive on those levels instead of trying to impose some kind of worldly logic on the situation that you are the luckiest in love.
