Forward March of Mercury

Ding, dong, the planet is direct. With Mercury flying straight, there will be no one to pin our communication mishaps on but ourselves. Thankfully, said “mishaps” will be fewer and farther between in the weeks ahead. It will take until the 15th for normalcy to fully be restored. The eccentric Aquarius moon will seize the opportunity to surprise us.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Being busy isn’t the status symbol some people seem to think it is. So don’t buy into the idea that “busy” equals “important.” Many important people are quite leisurely in their approach.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s your turn to react to what has happened in a relationship, but that doesn’t mean you have to make a move. Sometimes the best reaction is to buy time while you let new information settle.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ll be reminded of how, on this planet, all life is connected. For instance, the food we eat depends on healthy bees, and healthy bees depend on the approach we take to growing our food.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). When what happens during the intermission is more notable than the main event, you know you’re at the wrong event. You’ll reconsider your recent choices before you make any more plans.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Just when you thought you did everything in your power to ready yourself for the next stage — and, indeed, you did — you’ll be asked to adapt yet again. Your ability to do so quickly will ensure your sunny spot in Futureland.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may find yourself dazed by the day’s events. It’s not that you weren’t expecting them; it’s just that you weren’t expecting to feel the way you feel about them.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You may love a small part of a person, place or thing and then be tempted to extend your love to areas where it has yet to be earned. This is no time to go “all in.” Be cautious and reserved instead.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Never speak of the negative consequences of breaking the rules unless you’re willing to deliver those consequences. Empty threats earn worse behavior than no threat at all.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). To the untrained eye, your aims may seem unreasonable, overly ambitious or just plain lofty. But what’s the point of aiming for something that’s already on your level?

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you act differently around a certain person, it’s not that you’re being untrue to yourself. This person makes you feel different from the way you feel around most others, and it’s not something you can help.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll be tempted to play a game in which the odds are stacked against you, reasoning that someone has to win, and that someone may as well be you. Savor the feeling of risk, whether or not you actually decide to take it.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You may make more effort than the others and still not be given the consideration you so deserve. But you’re not in it for the glory. As long as you keep your mission in mind, the recognition won’t matter.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 10). You’ll accentuate the positive and leave all of the tough work for later. Before the month is up, you’ll act on timely news and nab a deal. A change at work in December allows you to explore a hobby or special interest in greater depth. Your love life gets richer at the start of 2014. Purchase property in March. Aquarius and Gemini people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 9, 40, 17 and 38.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: In fiction, characters given sodium pentothal will tell the truth, whether or not they want to. In reality, such “truth serums” are unreliable, as they have been known to produce false as well as true memories. With the Mercury retrograde screeching to a halt in Scorpio, we are willing to dig deep for the straight truth, but we should recognize that even if we make every effort to get to the heart of the matter, what’s there is still only one person’s experience. There may be many versions of the story, depending on whom you ask. Also, emotional truths can be quite different from the facts of what happened.

Also note that Mercury won’t be completely back to normal until the 15th. Until then, the action may be as jittery as a silent movie, but you can bet that in spite of the stuttered motion, it’s all going forward.

On Wednesday, Neptune takes a cue from Mercury and ends a retrograde cycle in Pisces. In the weeks ahead, we will be more likely to share the dreams and fantasies we kept locked inside us during the retrograde. Some things really are best kept in dream world, but voicing our desires will help us determine whether they are worth pursuing.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: “Nashville Star” contestant turned country music superstar Miranda Lambert is living such a public life these days that it’s breaking news when the dog eats her shoes. Scorpios such as Lambert are usually private people. With four luminaries in Scorpio, her natal chart suggests mixed feelings about this level of fame. Her moon in ambitious, business-savvy Capricorn suggests a highly driven personality.
