Mercury Enters Aquarius … Again

As Mercury backs out of Pisces and into Aquarius, his agenda changes. He’s no longer concerned with the actions that will build spiritual karma; instead he’s on a mission to help his fellow man (which in turn can’t help but affect the status of his soul). What’s next is a review of how we’ve helped people in the past and which actions bear repeating.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Those who play it safe are technically still playing, but if you have anything to do with picking the team, they won’t be playing with you. You want to be in the game with fellow risk takers.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Fixing an ailing relationship of your own might be difficult but is entirely within the realm of possibility. Fixing someone else’s ailing relationship is totally impossible, so don’t waste your time trying.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Some elements of your domestic scene are not working well. You’ll get the chance to revise, eliminate and improve. You are powerful, and there is more within your realm of control than there was before.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). A fun secret will be revealed. This one will bring new information about someone you thought you knew well. It might have to do with a crush or a surprising study or interest.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You feel it’s your responsibility to provide excitement, entertainment, warmth and electricity to a lackluster scene. Before you take over, consider whether you would be better off just starting a totally new scene from scratch.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Don’t confuse publicity with facts. Also, be careful not to mistake people for the roles they are playing. You’ll make the smartest decisions when you base them on the underlying truth of things.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). On days like this, your aesthetic sensors are so apparent that you have a hard time even looking at ugly things. You want everything to be as beautiful as it is inside your mind.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You may not be highly motivated by the job before you, but the good news is that there is plenty of reason to take it anyway. For starters, it will free you up to do the thing you really want to be doing!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). No matter how fast you are, you can’t win the race if you don’t cross the finish line. The one who finishes a job will get full credit, whether finishing entailed 10 or 90 percent of the effort.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your reality conflicts with another person’s, and that’s something simply to accept. No one is right, and no one is crazy, either. Each person is entitled to his or her own point of view.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your laughter gets others laughing. It represents togetherness and a shared point of view. It will be the remedy for what ails you and afflicts others, too.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Some ask for what they need. Others demand it or accuse those who aren’t giving accordingly of being selfish. The ones who are acting up aren’t necessarily doing so inappropriately. Unfortunately, asking is not always enough.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 12). You grow in awareness of your being. Your spiritual connections will be felt profoundly this year, and you’ll follow your intuition to financial opportunity, too. March changes your professional goals. Family successes are yours in May. You will streamline and beautify your life and possessions July through September. Aries and Taurus people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 35, 14, 38, 44 and 27.

VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL: HOW TO LOVE… ARIES: Passion, fire and kidding (sometimes even arguing) make Aries feel loved. If done well, engaging a love in debate can be a kind of love dance. TAURUS: The bull wants the physical evidence of affection represented in gifts of high value and quality. If you’re gifting a Taurus, it’s better to save up for one high-end item than to get a lot of little things. GEMINI: Gemini needs the words of love, preferably in an order that’s well considered. If you can pay Gemini a highly original and eloquent compliment, this is even better than a material gift in Gemini’s estimation. CANCER: For Cancer, an act of love is showing up and spending quality time at home together. Expect to luxuriate at home for hours and hours. Cancer considers the “dine and dash” an insult. LEO: Leo wants to be loved in a way the public can see. A ring, for instance, that nets lots of compliments when Leo is out and about or a social media post that gets lots of “likes” would be especially meaningful to the lion. VIRGO: Virgo wants only true love: a love that is proved consistently in word and deed time and again.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Christina Ricci played Lizzie Borden in the recent TV drama “Lizzie Borden Took an Ax,” the true story of a young woman tried and acquitted for the murder of her father and stepmother. Ricci is typically drawn to characters who are challenging in their darkness, and in typical Aquarian style, she is not one to shy away from eccentricity or oddity.
