Now Available: Mercurial Mind Expander

Though the spherical earth theory has been alive and well for thousands of years, there are still those diehards that prefer to believe we’re all living on a more or less flat disc floating in an ocean of sky. Mercury enters the expansive realm of Sagittarius, encouraging us to keep challenging our beliefs about the nature of this existence.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You may receive credit, but you also attribute it to your teachers. The ones who have been affectionate and selfless with you in the past have nurtured your ability to give in the same way to others.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). How can you care and be detached at the same time? You’ll figure that out and more today as life brings you assistance and lessons both practical and spiritual.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There is one accomplishment that once achieved will make many other areas of your life fall into place. It may take weeks to finally get there, but after today’s efforts, you’ll be well on your way.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Is naivety a negative trait? That depends on whether it is caused by a lack of experience or refusal to experience. You’ll help someone who is currently unable or unwilling to help himself.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be in a quiet mood, and if your environment matches, you’ll be golden. There’s strength to be gained from the experience of your thoughts. Your energy increases because you let less of it escape through voluminous words.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The correlation between your inner and outer world will be increasingly pronounced. As your unspoken inner will aligns with advantageous events you’ll know that you’re on the right track.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Don’t be tricked into thinking that someone can’t live without you. Do what feels comfortable. Times like this, it’s beneficial and healthier for all involved to let people fend for themselves.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s amazing what a smile can do to light up someone else’s world and open doors. You’ll smile often and in many directions. This difference in attitude will bring new developments.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your ability to envision the future will be highlighted. What you speak will in some way announce the next moment even when you have no idea what that moment holds.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The best goals are as challenging as they are realistic. You’re the expert in this regard and the restless feeling inside you declares that it’s about time you found a new target to aim for.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are usually responsive to those who reach out to you. When you’re not, there are specific reasons. Those reasons are probably mysterious now, but take notes. Later you’ll solve this.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll develop new objectives. Be careful not to bite off more than you can chew. It’s better to name a narrow focus and be successful there than try for a broad accomplishment.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (DECEMBER 10). You will be extremely effective if you stay on course. It’s important that your plan does not get derailed by allowing yourself to drift in different directions. Others will buy into your vision and give ample financial and emotional support. Someone who shares your values will bring joy and laughter in January. Aquarius and Pisces adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 49, 31, 20, 14 and 39.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Would you give a few business tips to a Sagittarius entrepreneur? I have dabbled in several areas but have yet to create a successful business.”

Sagittarians have two definite advantages in business. The first one is that the sign of the archer has a natural inclination toward goal setting and will work diligently to meet the target. The second is that Sagittarians are usually quiet adept at marketing and networking, processes that come so naturally to the sign that they often don’t even realize they are doing this. A Sagittarians will typically engage in enthusiastic conversations about their work and product, not even realizing that they are winning a new client or customer with the pitch.

What Sagittarius has to work hard at is sticking to one aim at a time. Yours is a wandering sign and you become easily bored once you’ve gotten an endeavor right. But a successful business requires that you work through that stage. To merely do a job well won’t create a successful business. You must be able to repeat successful actions and systemize them until you master a job. Beyond that you must define and organize the steps so you can teach others.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Superstar chef Bobby Flay is a fiery Sagittarius whose travels have inspired him to share the flavors he’s culled from all over the world. Sagittarians are passionate adventurers but for those who like to stay home, tasting the food and drink of a region is one way to journey without a plane ticket. Flay’s natal Mercury and Mars in earth signs indicate strong personal drive and a tireless work ethic.
