Mercury's Hangover Cure
The day after the exciting full moon can feel like a hangover, though a Mercury change will be a revitalizing cosmic tonic. Initially, Mercury boinging through energetic Sagittarius may feel like a pogo stick for the emotions. What goes up must come down -- but it's accompanied by sound and movement so silly it can only be considered play.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you fear that you're bothering someone by reaching out, it's a sign that this person hasn't made you feel comfortable and accepted enough to relax. Not your fault. Also, probably not a good match for you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Thinking ahead will help you play your moments better. A lot of moments won't even happen unless you make a plan. Just don't get stuck there. You don't live inside the plan; you live inside the moment.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're a very responsible person. You'll take charge of the situation as far as it should be taken charge of, all the while keeping in mind that some things are better left alone.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Inspiration will come in the form of people you may feel competitive with. It's something you'll likely keep hidden, and wisely so. Let it burble up in you to be examined and turned into improvement-fuel later.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll look back and laugh at some of the rules you used to give yourself. It's a good time to ask: "Am I doing the same thing now? Is there a rule I'm imposing on myself that is unnecessarily holding me back?"
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). That tough person you admire (but wouldn't exactly want to be exactly) will help you find the courage to cut out a piece of nonsense and get down to what's important to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your fantasies are the celluloid that will project onto the real world like film to the silver screen. Shift what you think about toward a topic that makes you feel giddy, warm and inspired.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Friends are blessings. You wouldn't take that for granted. And yet, you really should be able to feel free, even a little bit careless around them. Shake off the uptight energy and, hopefully, they will, too.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Even though you can tell when someone is lying, it's not always wise to call the person out right away. Going along may give you a strategic advantage. You can watch and understand what's really going on today.
