Mercury Mixes It Up

Mercury is an agitator as he challenges both Jupiter and Pluto and teases Uranus from across the sky. The lesson here is that in all things there is a balance to be struck. Excessive ambition is just as debilitating as apathy. Distrust can be as harmful as blind trust. Arrogance and low self-esteem net equally negative results. Double-check yourself.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Talk more about why you want something so that the one who can give it to you understands where you’re coming from. Share the logic behind your requests.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are sensitive to locations. When a place feels right to you, it changes how you experience things. You become inwardly expansive, lighter and brighter. Your thoughts will go to happy places.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You have a nose for the truth. When opinions try to pass as facts and vice versa, it won’t fool you. You’ll figure out which parts of fiction are true and which parts of nonfiction are completely made up.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re in the mood to do just the opposite of what is expected of you. You’ll surprise and delight the public. You’ll raise eyebrows and inspire laughter. You’re a rebel.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Whether a belief is logical doesn’t matter. If that belief is active in you, it will have power regardless of how reasonable or true it is. Detach from your mental tickertape and examine your thoughts.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Anyone obsessed with being perfect or positive all of the time will accomplish neither. If you’re going to be obsessed with something today, be obsessed with enjoying yourself.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). “Like attracts like” is the basic dynamic of energy. When you walk into a room, you’ll automatically go where your energy is in some way matched. What you get back will be an excellent gauge of what you’re putting out.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are so good at figuring out what other people need that you often forget to address your own needs, if you even know what they are. Do a needs assessment on yourself today.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Nothing can take away your worth. It is inherent. If you don’t think so, then you’re using externals to value yourself — a rookie mistake.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). When you are creative, you align with the creative forces of the universe. That’s why it’s so energizing to express yourself. You’ll get the chance to do so today. Seize it with gusto.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s only reasonable to try to get along in the world as it is. In this largely inexplicable existence, however, reason is often overrated. Reasonable people don’t change the world.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Something you own is clamoring for your attention today and causing quite a racket in the process. The sooner you handle this one the sooner you’ll get back your peace.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 16). You love to learn and will benefit from what you discover this year. A different way of interacting with loved ones makes everyone’s life more joyful in November and December. Work projects pay you especially well in October and March. An alliance in June leads to unexpected adventure. Sagittarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 50, 1, 22, 38 and 18.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “My Capricorn boyfriend just left me for a Libra. She’s not at all what I thought he would go for. I can’t even see the attraction. I’m a Taurus with a great job at an investment firm. Now I’m wondering whether it bothered him that I make more money than he does. I’m in excellent shape and am completely self-sufficient. I can’t see why he would dump me for a waitress at a sports bar who lives with roommates. Aren’t Capricorn and Taurus supposed to be compatible?”

Yes, they are both earth signs and have the potential to build a good life together. But maybe you’re missing the point about what attracts people to one another. Generally speaking, people fall for the people who make them feel good about themselves. Your stellar looks, fitness level and professional credentials might make him feel good about himself in the sense that being able to attract a woman of your caliber is a source of pride. Or it could make him feel bad about himself because he doesn’t feel needed, strong or masculine around you. It sounds like this Libra has tapped into the softer side of Venus (the planet that rules both of your signs) and is coming at the relationship from a place that appeals to his masculinity.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Last year brought many changes for Amy Poehler, and the transitional period will continue for this multi-hyphenated Virgo. Her sun, Mercury, Venus and Pluto in Virgo indicates that Poehler is grounded and takes life’s changes as well as the stress of a fast-paced work life in stride. Her moon in Leo signifies that Poehler’s first instinct is to turn difficult emotions into art and entertainment.
