Mercury and the Value of Story
It's not always easy to know the value of things. A valuable Picasso vase is sold at a garage sale for two bucks. A dusty volume at the library fundraising book sale is also a priceless relic. It is so often the case that true value is not accurately summed up in a price tag. In this new cycle of Mercury in Leo, goods matter, but it's the story we're buying.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Maybe it seems counterintuitive, but exposing what you feel insecure about is the confident move. To those with a core belief of worthiness, vulnerability is less of a risk. They know they will not be crushed by the outcome.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). An interest in widening your circle suggests your values are changing, too. And when your values match with those of another, attraction naturally follows.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It is impossible to give without giving to yourself. You will help someone heal and grow and, in the process, be helped, healed and elevated by the experience.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). You've been thinking about what others get out of being in a relationship with you and what you get out of being in a relationship with others. This generates changes you'll implement throughout the month.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You make efforts not to commit the crime of being too nice, trying too hard, taking responsibility for another person's happiness -- all benevolent ways to impose on another person's autonomy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You prefer to know what others want from you, and it is a hard thing to figure out without understanding where they are coming from. You'll make a quest out of it, and this leads to fascinating conversations today.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). If someone doesn't seem to like it when you go about meeting your needs in your own way, that person might be trying to control you, which you're likely to resist with great might.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). No two people are completely alike, so to understand another person requires bridge building. Respect is the essential raw material this bridge will be built with.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Empathy helps you navigate relationships that would be impossible to understand if not for your ability to put yourself in the other person's shoes.
