The Mercury (Pottstown, PA) - - YOUR DAILY BREAK -

Aries (March 21-April 19): All frus­tra­tion is a func­tion of un­re­al­is­tic ex­pec­ta­tion. In fact, frus­tra­tion is a good way to learn what’s re­al­is­tic and what’s not. Change the ex­pec­ta­tion un­til the frus­tra­tion evap­o­rates. Taurus (April 20-May 20): Your skills may seem ar­bi­trary, but you ac­quired each one for a very spe­cific pur­pose that made sense at the time. Now you’ll find a new way to apply what you know how to do. Gemini (May 21-June 21): Your emo­tional health and per­sonal growth will be served by two lit­tle words and one punc­tu­a­tion mark. Give your­self some space and si­lence and then try this one on for size: “What if?” Cancer (June 22-July 22):

While there are many pur­pose­ful con­nec­tions to be made through so­cial net­work­ing, you’d like to find the line be­tween wast­ing time and get­ting things done through so­cial me­dia.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): You can’t ex­pect the eupho­ria of an idea to carry through each one of the count­less small ac­tions that need to hap­pen to bring that idea into re­al­ity. Tedium is part of the cre­ative process, too. It will be worth­while to per­sist! Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you think your work doesn’t mat­ter to any­one out­side of your lit­tle cor­ner of the world, you’re wrong. You’ll be sur­prised and pleased by the re­ac­tion you get from out­siders. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23):

In or­der to fi­nally find out what’s pos­si­ble for you in a cer­tain en­deavor, you’ll need to cut out the thing that’s dis­tract­ing you and tak­ing you away from it. Make the com­mit­ment and you’ll be fun­da­men­tally changed by it.

Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): You’re al­ways on the prowl for new ways of think­ing of things and do­ing things, and you’ll like what you discover to­day. You have to be will­ing to sus­pend a bit of skep­ti­cism, though, for long enough to try some­thing out. Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Just as it makes no sense to be overly se­ri­ous about the quest for joy, when the goal is fun, it makes no sense to be hard on your­self along the way. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):

When some­one sees your spe­cial­ness, it’s mean­ing­ful. And when some­one treats you like you’re not spe­cial, it’s to­tally fine — but maybe that per­son doesn’t be­long in your in­ner cir­cle.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): There are some things that are man­age­able chiefly be­cause you know they will come to an end. When it’s not clear when that end will be, how­ever, they be­come scary. You can use this prin­ci­ple to set some­one at ease to­day. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Be­cause of the day’s events and how you han­dle them, when your head hits the pil­low tonight you will have the sense that you have come to a deeper un­der­stand­ing of the world and your place in it.
