Mercury Hops On Home

Following the sun, Mercury, the fleet-footed messenger of the gods, hops on home to Virgo. The transits bode well for savvy solutions and workable plans. Tenacity and diligence are Virgo’s prized ethics. Albert Einstein, whose natal Uranus was in Virgo, modestly claimed: “It’s not that I’m so smart; it’s just that I stay with problems longer.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Polite niceties are important and cannot be skipped. They can, however, be presented out of order. Say the thing that sparks the most interest first, and people will remember you and your message fondly.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You’ll get the chance to develop an interest that is unusual or so outside of your main focus that you can’t see how it could possibly help you reach a goal — and yet it will.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You accept the various personality differences that make up your social landscape. You don’t expect people to behave in the way that you prefer or can predict. These habits allow you to have a complaint-free existence today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). It’s another one of those days to hold some of your stories back. It will help you tune in to others and listen more carefully. You’ll glean valuable information from the nuances of how people are talking.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Even though you like to see the evidence that people love you, you find it embarrassing at times, too. You can’t control the flow of attention coming at you, but you’ll deflect it well today if it’s unwanted.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Regardless of how important you are to the team (and you are very important), you may not be treated as an individual now. You won’t mind, though, as you feel the surge of power that comes from being a part of something.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). For someone to appreciate what you do, he or she will have to experience it. This is one reason to delegate a job to someone who is not really qualified to do it, but who nonetheless should have the experience of trying.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Big ideas that are not presented with the fanfare they deserve will go unrecognized in a sea of mediocrity. Don’t let this happen to you. Present your idea in the kind of light that will make it shine.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be doling out work, so be sure to fit each job to the appropriate person. Hint: People who can’t organize their own thoughts won’t be able to organize others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll come face to face with many sides of human nature today: friendly, impatient, concerned, frustrated, confused and more. The best part of your day will involve helping people into a better state of mind.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Because there is so much competing for your attention, you’ll appreciate people who can simply state a need or tell you exactly what to do. Those people will also be your gateway to good fortune.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). There are consequences to every action, but some take much, much longer to realize. You will now experience the result of something you did many years ago.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 23). You’ll follow intuitive nudges into a sweet deal in the next 10 weeks. This could start a new career. A virtual friend will become an actual friend in September. December brings a welcome change in your family. January is your shot at the big leagues. March shows renovations to your home or image. Cancer and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 14, 27, 26, 1 and 9.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Right now, you’re both picky and feeling flush, so you’re willing to pay more for an experience that suits your taste. TAURUS: You want to know that a loved one wants you for who you are and not for what you can do for him or her. GEMINI: You’ll be given an opportunity because you’ve done so well with a previous one. CANCER: Drama is a turnoff to you. Red flags send you running in the opposite direction. LEO: It’s good to take a break from people sometimes, even the people you love the most. VIRGO: A loved one asks for your true opinion. Tread carefully, though, because this could be a trap. LIBRA: You’ll be lucky when you go where you’re most likely to be the most fascinating person in the room. SCORPIO: In the interest of self-preservation, avoid the person who always asks too much of you. SAGITTARIUS: You’ll be surprised by who can connect you with interesting singles. CAPRICORN: People really can make each other happy. You’ll get the proof. AQUARIUS: In matters of the heart, complexity will be a plus. PISCES: It won’t be so easy to get someone to understand your situation and the way you see it, but one of your thoughtful attempts will be successful.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Aries and Leo are two fire signs who understand each other so well that they don’t have to talk to know what the other is feeling. However, they talk anyway, as sharing is one of their favorite pastimes along with experiencing new places, making friends they both relate to and favorably impacting their community. With so many shared interests, these two are each other’s preferred company.
