STARCAST: Gemini lives primarily to communicate and with wily Mercury in the neighborhood there’s hardly a better time to consider your options. Brainstorm! Network! This week is tailor-made to socialize, learn new skills or buy something digital.
ARIES (March 20-April 18)
With mischievous Mercury whirling and twirling ’round your charm and room, life is certain to be complicated. Say what you mean, mean what you say. Then say it again. Misunderstandings can be disastrous. Walk softly and carry a tape recorder.
TAURUS (April 19-May 19)
As 2019 skips merrily along, you continue to feel a post birthday high. Minerva hates to rain on your parade, but rogue Mercury has set up the Monopoly board in your money house. A Pass Go! Card is involved, possibly a dividend from the past, but be careful how you play it. There’s a joker in the deck.
GEMINI (May 20-June 20)
Beating your head against a door that just won’t open is no fun. Call it a short course in futility and move on. Expect to experience the use or misuse of time spent decision making. Heavy duty introspection may not be your game plan, but doesn’t it beat running in circles?
CANCER (June 21-July 21)
The sun does its “same time, this year” number in your house of secrets just as Venus offers a flash of divine insight. Review your life before making a “back to future” decision. Take a breath and look around. Your place in the sun is coming soon to a theater near you.
LEO (July 22-Aug.)
Mercury pirouettes ’round your wish house and the possibilities are limitless. Your mission–should you choose to accept it–is to actualize your goals by “playing nice” with friends and colleagues. It’s a “who you know” thing that pays off well if you get it right. (There in lies the catch.)
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept.)
Though career issues are a real turn on, naughty Mercury is determined to muddy the waters. Time now to push back. Enough of that coulda, shoulda, woulda stuff. Think out of the box and watch things pop.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
A restless Mercury tickles your travel bone. You long to fly the ocean in a silver plane, see the jungle when it’s wet with rain, all that good stuff, just don’t commit yet. Currently, with tricky Mercury acting as chief travel agent, you’re safer settling for a staycation
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Wayward Mercury rockets round your hormone house. Looks like lovers and other strangers are holding the reins. (Yes, we’re talking relationships.) Push back on that crabby urge to grump. Decide instead what you really, really want in situations involving intimacy, joint funds or both. Then resolve to get it.
SAGITARRIUS (Nov.22-Dec. 20)
Sure, You’re independent. But is that really the course you want to follow . . . always? Current vibes are right for a bigger than both of us gamble. Consider, too, that partnerships come in many forms. Who said you had to do the two by two Noah’s Ark thing? It’s your life!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 18)
Mercury retrogrades, including the present one, are all about “R” words. Think: restore, redo, rewrite, etc. What’s worth doing is worth doing right-even if that requires repetition. Health issues are currently up for review, also work habits. Get it straight and get it right.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 19-Feb. 17)
A failed creative venture or possibly even a rejected romantic scheme could sudden develop legs. It’s all very exciting not to mention transforming. Some Aquarians will discover just how big the big stars really are because they’ll be part of the constellations.
PISCES (Feb. 18-March 19)
Mercury goes mad in your root cellar-something involving home or family or both-and suddenly an impatient piper demands payment. Somewhere there’s a wrong that needs a rightin.’ You know the one. Better call home while you can still remember the number. You do, don’t you?
Question: I’m a Sagittarius (17 Dec 1975) All the horoscopes seem to say good things should be happening for me, but despite my best efforts, nothing seems to be going my way either in career or love. What’s going on?
Answer: With Jupiter gone direct in your sign, your luck should change for the better right about now. You’ll benefit both personally and professionally. Spring, summer and fall look fab. Come December, fickle Jupiter moves on to your money house. Can you think of nicer Christmas gift?
