The Mercury (Pottstown, PA)
Aries (March 21-April 19): Your energy revs high and dips low. While it’s high, try new things. Your experiments will be most fortunate! The lows allow your subconscious to integrate all you’ve learned.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): You are someone’s favorite. You don’t have to work to maintain your position, and that’s precisely why you should put forth efforts. The number one rule for maintaining “favorite” status is to never take it for granted.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): You start with a vague idea. Your clever mind whirs to build a case for it. Emotions kick in with intensity. Suddenly, this vague idea seems like a do-or-die quest. It’s in your ability to dial the feelings up or down at any time.
Cancer (June 22-July 22): Information is only as useful as it is accurate. Check the facts before you act. Also, the sources have sources, which will be even more important to investigate. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Though many parts of your life seem uncertain now, you can trust in your ability to figure out the next right move. You’ll survey the scene, draw a straight line to the goal and then walk it.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Some situations are black holes of need. No matter what you throw in to help the situation, all will be consumed and more will be demanded — no chance of fulfillment in sight. Recognize the signs. Avoid at all costs.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): What’s ordinary to one person is mind-blowing to someone not of that world. There’s new vitality to tap by sharing a part of your life with someone who wouldn’t normally encounter it.
Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): A relationship has become cumbersome. New social tactics will serve it well. Levity and brevity are needed — or maybe just space. Nothing is quite as weightless or brief as nothing at all.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Remember when you misunderstood who was in charge? Titles never do tell the whole story. Power is often wielded from lower ranks. Now, you’ll tune your senses to more subtle cues. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): The sacredness of doors will be a theme. Doors are introductions, escape hatches, memory erasers, preludes, prison and privacy essentials. Things change with the opening and closing of doors.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): As salespeople know, however valuable an item may be, it’s not worth much if no one buys it. Profits are only made when inventory moves. You have an extra sense about what people want. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): You may not be trying to win someone’s affection, but your genuine interest in what they do makes them feel important; the sort of feeling that kindles fondness and motivates planning for future togetherness.
