Mercury on the Move

Mercury shows up at three different house parties this month: one hosted by Virgo, one by Libra and finally one by Scorpio. It’s the last day of the Virgo party, which is less like a raging social soiree and more like a retail event selling organizational tools for the adventures ahead. Seize the chance to get organized before the next social swirl.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Wishing you were someone other than who you are is a form of self-rejection that can only hold you back today. It’s better to spend your time working with your strengths and playing to your talents.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This is the kind of day in which older Taurus people lament the innocent, aimless, meandering youth that’s behind them, while younger ones fantasize about the freedoms of adult life.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Wanting to be your best is an admirable desire, and yet there is a point at which constant improvement may be a form of self-rejection. Take a break from improving, and like yourself “as is.”

CANCER (June 22-July 22). There’s a fine line between the heavy load that builds your muscles and the one that injures you. Let the good people around you help you out and keep you from taking on too much.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re not in a mood to conform, but doing one thing that everyone else is doing will put you on a treadmill of social expectation. Remember that this is not a trap. You can step off and do your own thing at any moment.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Just because someone asks you for answers doesn’t mean you have to provide them. In fact, you could be doing someone a disservice by answering their question and robbing them of one of life’s mysteries.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The human mind loves a pattern. The first step in a new direction seems illogical to the onlookers and may be met with protest. But keep on the path, and everyone will start to deal with the new pattern.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Everyone has different social tolerances. Some people are likely to speak more candidly in groups, and this may be uncomfortable. But it’s better than a closed-off environment where no one grows.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). As disgruntled as you may be in dealing with red tape and bureaucracy, it would be an even bigger ordeal to start your own country. So if you can manage to laugh it off, do so as often as possible.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You need more pleasure in your life. These days your tastes are unpredictable even to you, so be sure to try the different and unlikely options available to you.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Maybe you’re just being picky, but when it comes to romantic relationships, you’d like to know the real person and not the person that person thinks you want to see.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The answers are not upstairs in the attic of your mind. So don’t even bother climbing up there. The answers are easily observed in the world around you, though you’ll have to slow down to bear witness.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 8). What you learn about people in the next six weeks will enhance your relationships ever after. Balancing work and play will be challenging now because all you want to do is play. October brings a more industrious mood. Big profits rain down in December. January features a new relationship. Pisces and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 1, 28, 43 and 48.

FORECAST FOR THE WEEK AHEAD: As Mercury leaves Virgo, he admits that he may have been a bit hard on us in this critical part of the sky. Trying hard and doing our best are part of the Virgo ethic. But the shift of Mercury into Libra poses another way of approaching things. When life tries to qualify you to fit a certain role, it is human nature to want to fill that role. But that is not the only option. What if you went for superhuman status instead by disqualifying yourself from the role-playing game altogether? Accept yourself for who you are, flaws and all. This helps you to accept other people, and with increased tolerance, life gets easier for everyone.

Venus will enter Scorpio on Tuesday, Sept. 10, and will spend four weeks in this deep and soulful sign. It won’t be an easy time for love, but it will be a memorable one. Increased sensitivity to feelings — our own and those of others — could cause us to react in surprising ways. When strong emotions are aroused, drama ensues. The trick is to stay positive and focus on what’s going right.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Pink is a pop star and a rocker mom and is soon to be a movie star, as the feature film “Thanks for Sharing” soon hits theaters around the world. With co-stars like Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow to show her the ropes, Pink will take to the new role with her usual Virgo grace. Jupiter in entertaining Leo gives this Virgo a natural edge in the entertainment world.
