Mercury's Ego Challenge
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To regret wasting your time is an even further waste of your time. So instead, you'll take action. You'll plug a leak, break a chain or erase the board and start all over.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It will be difficult to get anything personal done if you involve too many people. When it comes to working alone, motivation is the hardest part, but after you get motivated you can work much faster than you would with a group.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A large gesture creates a big impression. That it's the right impression is more important than its size, though. Think about what you're trying to accomplish, and make a plan instead of rushing forward with the first idea.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Oct. 17). Because you know that the minutes go by regardless of what you've put inside them, you are ever vigilant to fill your time with what has meaning and value to you. You have never been so in touch with what moves you, and new inspiration and motivation comes each and every month of your next solar return. Aquarius and Virgo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 11, 40, 2 and 9.
TURN THE DOWNSIDE OF YOUR SIGN INTO AN ASSET: Each sign has strengths and weaknesses, and often they are the very same qualities. For GEMINI, being prone to communicate can be a blessing or a curse. The twins are not so great at keeping secrets, and they are the kinds of poker players who give way too much information with their many "tells." Young Geminis are likely to be scolded by teachers, librarians and parents for chatting at the wrong time or blurting out what is obvious yet inappropriate. However, the drive to communicate is applied to tremendously successful effect in the area of sales. No one can work a room like Gemini! This sign can get rich on this ability to create rapport and keep the conversation charming!
CANCER natives can be moody little crabs if they let their feelings go unchecked. Intensity of feeling can make life difficult for those born under the Cancer sun, as well as difficult for the people they love. However, the crab's sensitivity can be an asset, too. When they apply themselves to the task of flowing more love and positive feelings into the world, the empathy, compassion and understanding of moonchildren becomes a healing force.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: The Grammy Award winner Eminem was initially rejected by fellow rappers. This only added to his growing anger over a difficult early life and eventually crystalized into a hard-cutting style that catapulted him to superstardom. Discord is upsetting to Libras, who really want everyone to get along. Libra's saving grace is the ability to turn the problem into artistic expression.
