Mercury feels the need for speed

Can you relentlessly focus and put your philosophy of life into #7 pruned words or less? Like, OMG! Trickster Mercury’s been orbiting so fast, vis-a-vis our position, he’s appeared to be moving backwards--retrograde. Result? Thoughts have been outpacing our ability to speak them. Today he’s revving in neutral, ready for tomorrow’s shift to forward gear.
Moon's in Cancer Monday, December 12th...

Aries (March 20-April 19)
The Trickster planet, Messenger-Mercury, is still in your compatible fire sign, Sagittarius. Today he moves out of reverse gear and into neutral where he revs his engine before going forward tomorrow. You benefit from the sparks this revving throws off, as it ignites your mind with flashes of genius. Put a sign on your door nob, “Einstein taught here.”

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Everything feels so alive today. Your clear vision is coming from your very intuitive mind. Not the sharpness of the linear brain, but full of feelings from your heart. If there’s a nagging thought that won’t let go, pay attention. It’s likely the doorway to an epiphany. Use your green thumb to nurture the thought, let it grow into a genius inspiration.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini is no stranger to genius, it’s your turf. Like the mythic genie, you bring magic into creation. Intuitive flashes and “Aha” experiences are on the loose today, being carried on the flaming arrows of Sagittarius, the realm of the higher mind. You’ll need to watch where they land. Hint: These archers are always about freedom.

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
Catch that viral YouTube and share it with friends. Have some giggles. Your wonderful sense of humor is a gateway to creative thinking--another way of saying “that’s pure genius.” Look for flashes of inspiration from your everyday world (like the Christmas lights you hung on the doorway). You may be so excited about a new idea that you forget to eat lunch! A sure sign of a Cancer caught up in a creative project.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Sparks fly from your fingertips! Skype with your Aries and Sagittarian friends today. Between your three fire signs you have perfect symmetry for brilliant ideas. Take notes. You could solve a puzzle that’s been plaguing mankind. Like, what does it mean to be free?

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Get out the Windex for that big sliding door. You want a clear view and you know the outer is a reflection of the inner. Awe is in the air. Your right brain is stoked. Grab that epiphany and save it in your journal. It doesn’t have to make sense right now. Just let the epiphanies flow! Einstein said, “I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.”

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Everything feels so alive within you today. Whether you know it or not, you’re running on intuition. You may have to sacrifice some discipline and organization. But those linear plans never inspired you anyway. Allow a bit of creative mess if it helps you stay focused in your right brain. Wait ‘til tomorrow to pull your notes together or make that phone call.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The retrograde motion of the messenger planet coming to a halt, signals a time to let your ideas catch up with you. You could even clean out your inbox today where you flagged a bunch of messages for later--now is later. Genius is in the air. A genie appears like magic, called up by your heartfelt wishes.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Remember the aluminum hat? The Trickster Messenger is shooting your famed flaming arrows straight to your right brain. Dreams of far away places flood your memory calling you to travel in your easy chair. Rub Aladdin's lamp. Expect genius. Expect light.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Getting things done depends on being able to communicate your needs. Messenger Mercury’s warp speed slows today, like a runaway train coming to a stop. Some pile up is to be expected. Today your intuitive mind is capable of true genius. Intuit your way through those emails and stacks of papers. Let you heart prioritize.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
Mentally awake and very alert. It’s a catch-up day for unread messages that have been coming at you too fast. Some re-writes and a few apologies can be set aside for tomorrow. Today is filled with inspiration in a form you handle so well--appeals for justice and fair play. Read the story of our Noble Peace Prize winners--imagine your own version right here at home.

Pisces (February 18-March 19)
Use your natural-born gift for inspiration and visualization. Rub the ancient Aladdin's lamp, the source of light, and viola--genius. Einstein said, “imagination is more important than knowledge.” Imagine you’ve leaned back and parted the Red Sea for the courier of the Olympic torch to pass through. She hands it to you.

DateNight Clue: The Moon’s inviting Venus and Mars over for dinner. It’ll be a lavish feast, everyone will overeat, fall asleep, and miss their favorite show. Mars won’t care, Venus will blame it on the Moon, and the Moon’s glad she saved room for desert.
