Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your ruler Mercury in your sign is dancing with stern Saturn, which makes you more reserved when talking to others. You might prefer to be alone with your thoughts. Although it might be harder to see the big picture, you will certainly be aware of tiny details.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

You couldn’t pick a better day to tie up loose ends with taxes, debt, insurance issues and shared property. (Have you got this much string?) Your mind will be happy to work at practical matters because you can concentrate on matters that you would usually consider to be “boring stuff.”

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

You might tackle home repairs today. If so, you will get a lot done because you will be careful and persevering. You might also have a serious discussion with an older family member that is beneficial to you and perhaps your surroundings, as well.
