Mercury and Pluto Conjunction
You can't see your own face. The mirror shows you a representation that's limited in dimension. A picture shows you an even flatter, static version. Your brain fills in quite a lot, but ultimately others experience your face, your presence and your being in a way that you can only glimpse. And glimpse you will with this lineup of Mercury and Pluto.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Of course you have more power than you are exercising, but you wisely weigh the consequences of each action. True influence isn't about what you can get people to do; it's about what you can inspire them to want to do.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The absence of a person can be a presence -- a presence so strong it dominates the room, the hour, the talk and the feeling of the day. This is how humans can transcend the apparent laws of space and time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll be the one with the cool news soon enough. Today you'll get a chance to practice reacting to the cool news of others. In a way, you're modeling the reaction you'd like to get when it's your turn to be the messenger.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Setting yourself up for success will be a matter of casting the right people in the right roles of your life. You need someone to impress, someone to learn from and someone to cheer you on.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll talk on a number of broad topics and make people laugh, too. But your secret to relating to people is not in expressing yourself exceptionally well; rather, it is in observing exceptionally well.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). If it's true that the external circumstances somehow exist to balance and harmonize what's going on inside you, you should be able to change your interior world through a rearrangement of your environment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It is your desire to be a delight to others. You won't have to do too much to achieve this effect -- maybe slightly more than your usual self-care and making an effort to put yourself in their presence. That's it!
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). "How my achievements mock me!" said one character in a Shakespeare play. It's also the sentiment of everyone who's ever done something remarkable and been daunted by the prospect of repeating it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Because you know yourself well, you will see the world with greater accuracy. You can take your strengths and failings out of the equation and try for an unbiased view, to whatever extent that is possible.
