Women on bicycles, electric guitars, Elvis' dancing -- what is radical to one generation is commonplace to the next. On this final day of the current Mercury journey through Cancer, take stock of the status quo. Note how far we've come and how far we still have to go. Use this as the benchmark from which further data will be measured.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know how to hook up to the internal well of peace within your own being. Not everyone around you has this knowledge. Be patient with those who have yet to find serenity within as they relentlessly pursue external validation.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To listen well is to give a gift. The tricky part comes when your knowledge of how well you were listening gets tested. It feels as though all hard-won trust is hanging in the balance of one right answer.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You are constantly updating your skills. In fact, it's become such a regular happening for you that you no longer give much thought to the fact that you're learning something. Learning is your way of life.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You care deeply about what you're presenting to the world today. Purpose matters. Sometimes you dress for your own pleasure, and sometimes you're more concerned about representing your group.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You'll make it about the other person, not because it's generous or friendly, but because it's the smartest way to go about getting what you want. Everything is a trade. Find out what the other person would like to get out of it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What you have is perfectly suited to solving another person's problem. Your effort is better spent finding that person with whom you share compatible needs than trying to change yourself for someone who's a bad fit anyway.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You see yourself as an adviser who wants to help. From this position, you can go so many more places than a person who's only on a mission to fulfill his or her own agenda.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A single cloud can hide the whole of the sun. One wrong or unhelpful thought could be the equivalent of such a cloud. Recognize dark ideas. Flood them with light or entreat the winds of change to blow them away.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You'll do well to choose your mode and stick with it, as today is all about establishing trust. People will appreciate knowing what to expect from you. Settle into a tone, and then play it through to the end.
