Mercury in Wise Pisces

In business, the rule of thumb goes: If someone is trying to give you money, don’t make it difficult for that person to do so. There’s little reason to put up with slacker employees who waste the customer’s time. A well-executed complaint might not save polite society from falling into the abyss, but then again, now that Mercury is in wise Pisces, it might.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Some say there is gold at the end of the rainbow. Others say rainbows are reminders of the illusory nature of beauty. You possess the uncanny ability to simultaneously maintain optimistic and realistic opinions.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Success will be found in simplicity. Be vigilant in this regard. Too many superfluous additions and rigid details will only complicate things to the point you can’t move forward.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The person that entertains to keep the action moving along will be a welcome addition to the social swirl, as long as this person also knows how to share the focus. Attention hogs, on the other hand, are tedious.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a reason you like certain people and respond to certain stimuli. You possess similar and complimentary qualities. Let that resonance between you and what you admire be a validation to you now.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Knowing when and what to invest in may seem tricky, but really it’s not. Think about what is truly valuable and put your money there. There is no point in saving pennies if doing so causes you to lose dollars later.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). There are so many reasons for doing the difficult thing first, so don’t let fear or laziness keep you from doing so. Once you handle the difficult thing, everything else will be cake.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). A rebellion is stirring inside you today. The easy move is to run off to a place where you’re allowed to do your own thing. But the true rebels are the ones who cause change by infiltrating the mainstream.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your mood is quiet and you won’t feel inclined to start conversations that don’t really need to be started. This quietude is not a function of sadness, but a desire to observe things how they are without your interference.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You may get to do your favorite thing today. Put the intention in your mind early on and let it serve as a beacon, sending signals to attract this special activity into the realm of possibility.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll be moved to kindly state your boundaries and limits up-front, so everyone knows what to expect. This way of communicating will deter people from pulling you off course.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You used to feel angry about the way a certain person treated you but lately those feelings have changed into fuel for your latest project, which will ultimately be an expression of your considerable talent.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People will be interested in you today, though you might not be in the mood to share your personality so openly, choosing instead to deflect questions with humor and a focus on the asker.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Jan. 31). Self-knowledge and success are linked this year. In February and July, your social circle will revolve around you and the entertaining you do. In April, you will get something other than what you thought you needed, and it will turn out to be a most prized gift. March and June are your financial highs — sock money away. Libra and Gemini adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 25, 40, 21, 7 and 36.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Relationships are important to you, but so are a lot of other things. A partner who understands this is your ideal. TAURUS: Want to know what the other person is thinking? Your best guess is pretty accurate. GEMINI: In order to win a person’s heart, you must first win the approval of his or her family. CANCER: Don’t do too much in service of your loved one — it’s teamwork that will build the relationship. LEO: Studying the common courtships of other cultures will be eye-opening. VIRGO: You’ll forgive and forgive again, but don’t worry, your love will get it right eventually. LIBRA: You’ll find out that your shared moral stance is only the tip of the iceberg of what you have in common with a partner. SCORPIO: Good-natured teasing can convey your interest and affection, but test the waters first to make sure the other person has a sense of humor. SAGITTARIUS: If you want to meet more people, female relationships will introduce you to men and vice versa this weekend. CAPRICORN: Know the difference between someone who is emotionally open and someone who is just loose with personal details. AQUARIUS: You’ll draw new boundaries in a situation that has gotten slightly out of hand. PISCES: You want to bounce ideas around with your love — this why you chose someone whose intellect you respect.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: Love goddess Venus has been traveling backward through Capricorn and today she changes her mind — love will resume a direct course. The signs that Venus rules, Taurus and Libra, will be most affected by this change of direction and the amorous energy ignited could easily be directed at one another. Taurus and Libra share a similar aesthetic and resonate at a complementary emotional tone.

    I trust that God said rainbows are a sign that he would not destroy earth again
