Cosmos Favors Commerce

Holiday Mathis on

Commerce will be going strong this Gemini moon with Mercury's recent move to the realm of expansion. Money is not the root of all evil, just a lot of it. Mistrust anyone who claims not to care about money, as this is either sadly naive or a ridiculous lie. Do business with people who have a healthy respect for money, not an obsession with it.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). With so much competing for your interest, it will be rather easy to pass up the thing that obviously requires it. An interruption will be significant. Someone really does need your attention.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). This will be a day of unexpected obstacles. Your success strategy will include exclusive focus on that which you can control. There's something lucky between you and a Sagittarius.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Everyone wants to feel better, including you. Because you're already feeling strong, you're willing to do the hard work to feel better instead of going for a quick fix.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've a special charisma, so don't be surprised if people stop and observe you to try to figure out that indescribable something that makes you so compelling.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your luck will come in the form of another person -- someone who is willing to listen to you, try your ideas, be available to your intelligence and be open to your whims.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have heard enough complaining and don't wish to do any, nor do you care to leave a bad review. If you like something well enough, you'll say it's good. If you don't, you'll say it's interesting or call it a learning experience.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Advertisements, wall art, media, friends -- you're getting tired of people telling you what to do. Anyway, you already have a clear vision of where you're going next and what steps will take you there.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your cosmic boon of the day is one that doesn't come around very often: a very generous ratio of effort to results. Minimal work will accomplish a maximum result. Enjoy!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). One way to avoid the very common tendency to eat and/or drink away difficult feelings this time of year is to agree to go ahead and feel them. They may be unpleasant, but only briefly. Before you know it, they're processed and gone.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Each job comes with unique pressures. It would be naive to think that any role is superior to another. Anyway, the only position you can effectively work to your advantage is the one you're in.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Your mind is sharp, and your body is strong. Furthermore, there's a wise teacher in your head leading your energies in the most effective and efficient ways.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Ask for help, whether or not you think you need it. People will like helping you today, and they'll like you even more than they already do because helping will build a bond between you.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Nov. 6). Rather than pine for a different reality as you once did, you'll embrace the current circumstances and work them to your best advantage. Your evolved stance will net you brilliant results in the next five weeks. You'll be able to assist your family as a result. There's a windfall in February, and you'll travel in April. Cancer and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 25, 41, 20 and 17.

VENUS NEWS: Venus has been traveling the sign of partnership since mid-October, and now we've come to her last day in Libra for this cycle. It's the perfect time to take stock of where you are in your relationships.

Unfortunately, this is a time on the planet when it's become very easy to meet new people and also easy to forget them. Practices such as "ghosting," "icing" and "simmering" are used with alarming regularity, especially in regard to internet dating. It's easy not to answer a text and disappear from another person's world entirely. It's even easier to send endless texts back and forth with no real intention of getting together or forwarding a relationship past the stage of the momentary thrills of flirting strangers.

With tomorrow's Venus transit into Scorpio, these types of shallow behaviors won't go over well, nor will they satisfy or sustain relationships of any kind. Scorpio energy is willing to go deep, to look for substance and to tally up what happens on a soul level.

Have you ghosted when you could have been more direct? Are there people you owe a check-in with a phone call instead of a text? Have you been flaky or socially less responsible than is your ideal standard? If so, this is the time to shore up the discrepancy and make it right, or at least make a vow to do better in the future.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Scorpio Emma Stone could get accolades for her role as Billie Jean King, the former top-ranked professional tennis player, in "Battle of the Sexes." Stone was born when the sun, Mercury and Pluto were all in Scorpio, lending magnetism and mystique that fascinate on the big screen. Her moon and Venus are in Libra, showing a collaborative spirit and romantic heart.
