Mercury's Trials in Capricorn
If you've ever taken toddlers to the park, you've probably noticed how the socialization one would think comes with being human doesn't naturally exist. There's so much learning involved in playing well and being civil. Be patient through the awkwardness of Mercury in the early stages of Capricorn. We're all toddlers in the park.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your social life is a series of concentric circles. The rules are different depending on which strata you're dealing in. To act intimately with the outer ring or respectfully distant with the inner ring is a breach of unspoken contract.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You like people, but you don't cling. You're confident that you can find kinship with any number of people in the world. You'll wait for a love that's intriguing. For you, curiosity is a key component in attraction.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You're a naturally hospitable person, so you can't fully enjoy yourself unless you know that everyone is having a good time. Your generosity in this regard won't drain you; instead it will actually renew your energy.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Account for what is going right for you: So much is that this will be a very long list. Your focus on the positive will reduce your worries. Your lighter, more joyful heart will attract the same.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Two people make the same mistake. One agonizes over it for ages; the other ponders what happened just long enough to decide what the takeaway is then moves on to new mistakes. Be like the second person.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have the chance to work behind the scenes. Is that really where you can do the most good? What if you put yourself front and center instead? You're in fine form and have something unique to contribute.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It's inside you now -- that impish urge to upset the applecart. You know better, and you won't make a move, but someone will find the daring gleam in your eye very intriguing.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You don't preserve your self-esteem by doing things perfectly. Self-esteem is built through realizing that even when you make mistakes you're still awesome and worthy of your own love and the love of others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Everyone needs help from time to time, but even if you don't really need it, you should ask for it anyway. Because people need to give you help. And the help they give makes them like and understand you better.
