Mercury, the minister communication, braves the oceans of Pisces, starting new trends in interpersonal relating. Explicit instructions are out; implications are in. There's more info in silences than in words. During this transit, words have a way of being redefined to such a point that they may indicate their antonym.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). One person's "in order" is another person's "out of control." It's not true about every day, but today you'll do well to work with people who share a similar style to your own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If the people who think about changing the world would think about changing themselves instead, they might actually accomplish both scenarios. Keep it personal today.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's not that you tolerate dullness better than others, it's that your bright, curious mind finds much to grasp onto where others cannot. The day will bring you fascinations and delights.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It is impossible to connect with others on a deep emotional level for a long period of time without getting hurt. That's part of it. If you don't know that love hurts, you don't know love. Be brave.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Experience and wisdom are connected, but don't make the mistake of thinking that just because a person has some life and years under his belt that he is wise. It doesn't work for everyone. Assume nothing; stay aware.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). People feel good around you. Your humor is stellar. The reason you make people laugh today is that you tell just enough of the truth. If you told too much of it, you'd make them cry instead.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The poet William Wordsworth was right when he said that "nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower" and yet you'll find something equally radiant in today's experience if you look for it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Maybe there's security in certainty, but it's also essentially unattainable, so why try so hard? You can never know what the other person is feeling. Besides, if you did know, you'd be bored. Uncertainty keeps spontaneity alive.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). People who knew you back then need to catch up a bit in order to understand the you of today. Don't be surprised if they get it wrong a few times before they get it right.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). If you win, celebrate. If you lose, celebrate in a different way. Everyone misses from time to time. Defeat is a test. Will you get back up or will you lose heart?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Give a thought to how the other person might be feeling, where he might be coming from, where she might be going. This is selfless, but it's also smart. He could be plotting something.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll never look back at your efforts and regret giving too much or working too hard. Do more than you get paid for now and later you will get paid for more than you do.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 25). The mastery of life skills will happen in roundabout ways. You keep doing your best, modifying that, doing your new best, modifying again, and improving in many areas at once. There will probably not be a clear-cut goal until April. Then, inspiration and motivation are extremely strong. You'll build in July. Aries and Cancer adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 4, 29, 35 and 14.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "I'm a Pisces and I've fallen for an Aries. This person doesn't know my feelings. We are both involved in other relationships. But something happens whenever we work together. It's a powerful click. He seems to know what I'm thinking. He answers questions I didn't ask out loud, but really wanted to know. He does silly things just to make me laugh. He says he loves hearing the sound of my laugh. No one has ever said that to me before; certainly not my current partner. When I know that I am going to see him or be near him, I get a stomachache that doesn't go away until he leaves. What does it mean? Were we meant to be together? I do love my current partner — a Capricorn. But this Aries feels like destiny."
Pisces, as the sign of spirit, you can truly understand how humans can enjoy all kinds of energetic combinations without taking things to an inappropriate place. In other words, celebrate the special friendship, working relationship and synergy you have with this person and don't try to make it more than it is. Not everything is about running off and starting a life with someone. Sometimes it's just about enjoying a moment of connection, appropriately, for the circumstance you're in.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: Pisces is the sign of old souls. It is not uncommon for Pisces people to know their career path at a very young age. Perhaps this partially explains why Dakota Fanning has well over 50 film credits to her name and was nominated for a SAG award at 8. Another lucky "8" is coming into Fanning's life, as she stars in the upcoming heist film, "Ocean's Eight."
