Mercury Makes Nice

Mercury has been causing strife with the likes of Uranus, Jupiter and Pluto, but the messenger attempts to make nice today via an auspicious connection with Mars. If you set out to tackle the big issues, you’ll probably get absolutely nowhere. But if you take action on what matters to you, the world will respond to your passion in a big way.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll deal in this conundrum today: Struggling to prove your deservedness really only proves that you believe you don’t deserve it. Believe in your worth, and the struggle ends.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The phone will keep buzzing, and the emails will keep rolling in — that’s just modern life. Don’t be bullied by your devices. You’re still in charge. Just because it rings or dings doesn’t mean you have to respond.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some people can sit and do nothing at all. You rarely see the value in this, and you see laziness as a fault, not a skill. However, there is great benefit to doing nothing at all for a stretch of today.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You will notice the energy that’s directed at you, as you are very attractive to people who are outside of your circle. You may talk and open up a bit, but remain protective of your time. It’s a most valuable resource.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). People seem to expect something from you that is different from what you’d like to give — a clue that you may be mismatched to your environment. The way to find out is to explore a bit and see whether things aren’t better “over there.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may do nontraditional things with your loved one from time to time, but your relationship itself is quite traditional in terms of the role you expect each other to play. This works extremely well for you now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There is always a simple solution and the hard way. Being relaxed helps you see and apply the simple solution. If you are not relaxed, you’ll notice only the hard way and mistakenly assume it’s the only route.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It’s one thing to be surprised by a sudden bout of good fortune and quite another to expect it. The latter is demotivating. If you’re going to give someone a gift, let it be a surprise.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’re a fast learner. You may get it wrong once, but you won’t get it wrong the same way twice. You’ll switch tactics at least three times before the day is over.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You want to be independent, but someone will offer to help you, and you will seem like an ingrate if you don’t take that help. This is a legitimate assist. And don’t worry — if it works out, it will still be you doing the work.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). If you can be still inside yourself, you will be protected from the chaos of the world. It will swirl around you, but you won’t be swept up in the momentum. You’ll be the eye of the storm.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Those who have not been well taken care of by their families value loyalty just as much as others do. Have patience with those who are still learning the power of allegiance.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 17). A special someone will help you understand and use your talents. October brings a career breakthrough. Spend many hours fully fleshing out your ideas before you share them with a potential team in November. You’ll find a benefactor in December. Family events forward joint interests in 2014. Gemini and Libra people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 40, 22, 13, 29 and 48.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I don’t understand what I’m doing wrong. My boss seems to hate me. She’s a Scorpio, and I’m a 23-year-old Pisces guy. I do everything she wants and more, and she still seems to favor my far less helpful colleague. How can I win her favor and possibly the management position that is opening up next month?”

Consider applying the Franklin effect to this relationship. Benjamin Franklin said, “He that has once done you a kindness will be more ready to do you another than he whom you yourself have obliged.” It may seem counterintuitive, but people tend to like those they have helped more than those who have helped them. This explains why your boss is so fond of your colleague. You could get your Scorpio boss on your side by asking her for help. Why not ask her directly for career advice? For instance: “What would it take for someone like me to be ready for a position in management? I’d love your insight about this.” Or: “Would you help me understand the company culture a little better? I’d love to hear about your experiences and any advice you think might help.”

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Mia Talerico has been a Disney star since she toddled onto the set of “Good Luck Charlie” at 11 months old. This Virgo may still be too young to know whether the acting life is for her, but a balance of Virgo and Libra planets assures that she gets satisfaction from doing a good job and making on-set friendships. Virgo energy inspires a can-do attitude, and Libra energy thrives in social settings.
