A Know-It-All Alert from Mercury

Entertainment / Horoscopes /

These early stages of Mercury in Gemini come across as an open invitation to know-it-alls. Keep in mind that nobody cares how much another person knows.

Pluto Retrograde

Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable? It's a good sign.
