Creativity soars today and imagination runs away with the show. Mercury is apparently standing still as it ends its retrograde phase which began on October 21. During these last three weeks, mental Mercury asked us to look back, reconsider plans and tie up loose ends. Now it’s time to look ahead, but Mercury’s trine to dreamy Neptune, combined with the Moon’s shift into illusory Pisces at 9:36 pm EST, makes it tricky to know what’s real.

You have been engaged recently in some pretty serious thinking about your life whether or not anyone else realizes it. It’s not that your search for deeper meaning is over today, but it is now time to shift gears and turn your philosophical search into something more practical. Knowing the truth is a great start, but can lose its value quickly unless you apply your wisdom in ways that matter.

Relationships might exhibit a fated quality these days as circumstances take on a life of their own. However, maintaining control over others is not a viable strategy, since you won’t be able to stop the inevitable anyway. Instead of struggling to cling to your agenda, embrace the coming changes; they can bring you more exciting opportunities than you currently realize. Trust the process and let go.

There really isn’t a graceful way to escape the work that needs to be done now, so save your sweet talking and tap dancing for another day. Your clever charm is not going to serve you well today, even if you’re feeling extra witty. Actions speak louder than words. The sooner you start your chores, the more time you’ll have later to kick back and enjoy yourself.

Responsibilities may prevent you from having too much fun today, even if your idea of relaxation is to just hang out at home with a loved one. You know what you want, but could run into unexpected obstacles. If your satisfaction is delayed, don’t waste precious energy fretting. Channel your energy wisely for the best results. Rest assured that you’ll get your just rewards soon enough.

You might not say everything you feel today because you’re exploring recent private moments that could have unresolved issues attached to them. Allow yourself the luxury of dredging up old memories without having to rewrite history just so you can fix what went wrong. You will soon be involved with new and pleasurable experiences, so just let your mind meander down Memory Lane while you can. A sentimental journey could do you a world of good.

Separating the useful information from all the superfluous data is uncharacteristically difficult now. Every little item seems important, but there’s just too much of it to make sense. Nevertheless, sift through what you know, even if it’s a struggle, and set aside everything but the most essential facts. Rely on the basics and you’ll be able to make the best choices for your future.
(Sep 23 – Oct 22)
If you have been procrastinating about any financial matters, today might be your last chance for a while to take care of unfinished business. You are being drawn into other pressing issues that are developing now as Mercury moves direct in your 2nd House of Possessions. Don’t wait; you may not have a lot of time to go back and redo what should have already been done. The sooner you finish, the better you’ll feel.

Your intense communication style might be more than others prefer now, but they may just have to take you just as you are. You’re not in a negotiating mood because you realize that your perceptions are even more acute than usual. Don’t back down if you believe that your conclusions are sound. Nevertheless, remember that applying gentle persuasion will still work better than issuing ultimatums. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Although things are looking up, you still may have serious business to take care of today. Stay focused on your long-term goals now and don’t let your frustration get the best of you. The next few days mark a turning point as your subconscious mind sends you powerful messages about your future. Steady persistence is more important now than unbridled enthusiasm. Dig deep and give it all you got.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Your contemplative attitude feels more comfortable today to you than it might to anyone else. Your cautiously reserved behavior brings up issues for someone who wants you to act in a more happy-go-lucky manner. But it won’t help if you wear a smile just to please other people. You can’t go wrong if you stick with what your instincts tell you now. Your authenticity is your greatest asset.
(Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Your passionate words may have more impact today than you expect. However, you’re not even sure that you fully believe what you said just a few minutes ago. You aren’t purposefully misleading anyone; it’s just that your logical conclusions are not supported by what you feel in your heart now. Nevertheless, you know you must speak the truth as you experience it in the moment, for maintaining your integrity is what matters most.
(Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Your x-ray vision allows you to see right through any sort of cover-up today, but the question is what do you do with the information you possess? The answer can be found in your attitude. It won’t work if you try to show someone what you think they need to know. If, on the other hand, you offer a different perspective without declaring that it is the only path to follow, then you can help people by expanding their options. Sharing your knowledge freely inspires others to do the same.
