The winged messenger of the gods lends his eloquence to the realm of Libra for the next three weeks. This is the second sign Mercury will visit this month, and much commerce will occur under this friendly influence. It’s easy to work together, finding out one another’s needs and wants and accommodating them to the best of our abilities.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You love life, and life loves you right back. But you may want to have a talk with life and explain the particular ways in which you like to receive love, because life has some mistaken notions regarding your taste.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The proud man will take less than he needs. Maybe that seems foolish to less dignified types, but such stoicism shows the world a breadth of spirit that will make great things possible.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If you know what you’re doing, you will only need a few tools to do today’s work well. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you can avoid overspending on tools by asking an expert.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). With whom you spend time matters to you. Social influences will change your mood, if not your destiny. That’s why you’d rather skip lunch than eat it with someone you don’t enjoy.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Go for the easy jobs first. Rack up a few wins to build your confidence. People will investigate what you’re up to. If they see you winning, they will have the sense that you’re a winner.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Staying positive is as good for your health as it is for your social life. It doesn’t make you happy to know that many in the world are suffering, but it does help you to appreciate what you have.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Focus on one thing, not many things. Doing one thing will bring pleasure; whereas, splitting your time between many tasks will make you feel as though you’re not getting anything done.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). People value things that they put effort into. That’s why you are better off asking for other people’s help and contribution than you would be serving up the things you believe they want.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). If the one in charge seems to have no idea what to do next, it’s a troubling feeling. What’s needed is a strong leader with a vision. You’d rather break out on your own than waffle in a situation that’s going nowhere.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Life will feel like a swing: There’s momentum but a limited range of motion. You move forward only to be brought back to where you started, but that’s more fun than hanging in the middle.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Go ahead and spend some money on making yourself look and feel better. It only makes sense that if you invest in yourself you’ll value yourself more.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Making it too easy for people will not only inspire them to be lazy, but they won’t have as much fun. Instead of performing to please people, create a vacuum. Ask them to make an effort, and then wait expectantly.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. You work tirelessly to achieve your heart’s desire. The important thing to remember is to be persistent in one direction. If you keep changing your mind, you’ll waste time. This month brings a relationship commitment. Money in October and May is best reinvested. June is for whimsy and indulgence. Aries and Leo people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 4, 11, 20 and 15.
NUMEROLOGY: You can find today’s numerology by adding up each number in today’s date: 0+9+0+9+2+0+1+3 ¢ 24. Then add the 2+4 for a final outcome of 6. For an explanation of “six” days, visit the column archives and check out August 28, 2013.
Over the past two weeks, we have explored the numerology for 1-9 days , with the exception of 3 and 5. Now let’s fill in the blanks starting with “three” days.
”Three” days are for joining with others, especially in conversation and commerce. Information and necessities will be exchanged on “three” days. They are busy and infused with the optimistic notion that progress is being made. However, do not try to forward any agenda on “three” days without being sure that you’ve connected with another person first. “Three” days are social. They are days to find common ground, build rapport and schmooze.
If you were born on a “three” day, you were born with the gift of charm. You know how to make people feel comfortable, and they relate to you with ease. You’re a leader in fun, and people gravitate toward you. Your popularity often helps you in business.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Despite disturbing Internet hoaxes to the contrary, Adam Sandler is alive and thriving and is currently reunited on set with co-star Drew Barrymore in the filming of “The Familymoon.” The multi-hyphenated Hollywood mogul was born when five planets were in healthy, industrious Virgo signaling an ever-young quality. The forces of longevity are definitely on Sandler’s side.
