Mercury Storm


In high school, the jocks and the artists tend to separate if only because their schedules are so intensely specific. In life, both sports and the arts are a celebration of life. Why not do it all? This Mercury storm period, which lasts until October 29th, is a good time to be more inclusive in regard to your self-definition.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Just because a situation is wrong for you right now doesn't make it wrong for you in general. Tonight, your mind is full of creative fuel, so burn up some brainstorms.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It's so easy to become overly critical of yourself. Everyone makes mistakes — get over it. Engage in activities that power your imagination. A moneymaking idea will seize you when you least expect it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Shopping could be just the distraction to keep you happy, glamorous and ready for love. Tonight, the limelight calls you. Let loose and live big, because the cosmic focus favors you.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Release yourself from a group that has been commandeering too much of your precious energy. At home, instead of avoiding conflict, go through it with eyes and heart wide open.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your responsibilities are tall. Just say it — you need help! Bringing more people onto your team not only gets the job done, but it also helps you forge some close relationships.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). This Mercury business is really messing with you. But now it's a new beginning, a fresh start, a clean strike. So what are you supposed to do next? Don't ask anyone else. Ask your own heart.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your role in a group is changing. You don't necessarily want to lead, but you may find yourself in that position nonetheless. It's because you have a vision of what all this could be.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Be bold and daring. The world needs more of you, so much more. Something you've been keeping to yourself is worth sharing. Try it, but not digitally. You can't take that back.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Red-carpet dreams fill your head. Try to finagle a way to take on responsibilities that are more to your liking. A Capricorn or Cancer you've been eyeing will eye you back. Intrigue! Excitement!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Here's what your loved one most wants to know: "I'm there for you." Deliver this message, not in words, but in action.

It will be like a love letter in motion.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Getting unstuck from a rut will be easier than you thought it would be. You simply have to make a choice and then make another. A few quick, bright decisions, and suddenly you'll be undone.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Treat yourself how you want to be treated. Don't wait for someone to guess what you need. Buy yourself the new outfit or take yourself out. It's just as thrilling when you're the one delivering the goods.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 25). Your dreams will be prescient. Dream about yourself, and think about your wishes and ambitions before you drift off. Your work picture will change in November: same tasks, different attitude, lucrative outcome. Love will form your domestic arrangement. January through March will be the best financially. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 34, 6, 18, 27 and 31.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "I have three young children, and they're each so totally different. What might astrology have to say about my girls — a 5-year-old Gemini, a 2-year-old Capricorn and a newborn Taurus?"

Toddlers can be silent on what will make them happy, which makes basic astrology invaluable to parents. Sibling rivalry won't be an issue for your Gemini child; this sign absolutely adores siblings! However, she won't suffer boredom kindly, so get her involved. Try making games out of the most mundane chores such as changing diapers or feeding baby. I'm noticing Capricorn is in her "terrible twos," so named after the astrological Mars return, and Mars has returned to its original position at her birth. Self-assertion and boundary testing are common here, but Capricorn kids often enjoy straightforward rules, so you'll find her responsive to guidelines and rewards for following those. Taurus babies are physically responsive; hugs, touch and peaceful quiet calm baby's cries. So whether she needs cuddles (Taurus) or to be given a mommy's-little-helper responsibility to make her feel important and therefore loved (Gemini), sun sign astrology can bridge gaps in maturity and understanding.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: With a talent that goes far beyond singing, deliciously eclectic pop star Katy Perry is connecting with fans of all ages and types around the entire world these days. Perry was born when the sun, the moon, Mercury, Saturn and Pluto were all in Scorpio, making her love of the subversive both practically inevitable and totally relatable.
