Mercury lining up with Pluto in Capricorn helps us to focus our minds, although it can feed obsession over details and plans.
ARIES (March 20 - April 19): Figure out how to reach your goals in life, no matter how long it will take. You should have a major career peak in about seven years. The better it's planned the higher it will be.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Push your mind and imagination to their limits. Don't be scared of big arguments or grand ideas or even a bit of controversy. Getting a little out of your comfort zone will be good for you.
GEMINI (May 21- June 20): Some of your darkest, deepest feelings can come up like a geyser. Grief, erotic passion, secret fears and yearnings are at the top of the list. Have a close friend handy who can be trusted with your nastiest, most intimate secrets.
CANCER (June 21- July 22): It may feel like an argument with your partner could kill your relationship, but not airing those issues is deadlier. Taking the chance could deepen your commitment. If single, being that honest will scare away all but those who truly love and deserve you.
LEO (July 23 - August 22): Definitely get that cough looked at. No cough? Still a good time to check any health issues. At work your problem solving skills are at their peak. You may need to work on diplomacy to get others on board with your ideas
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22): Honing your skills in any given sport, art or hobby is fine, but don't get too worked up over something that's supposed to be relaxing and fun. Even if you're looking to go pro remember it's an entertainment, not an obsession.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22): You can unlock family secrets, but are you really sure you want to know? It may be best to let sleeping dogs lie. If you find out you will also learn why it's a secret and why you must guard it just as carefully.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21): You can be trusted to keep a secret, and now your friends are seeing you as a father-confessor. Keeping their secrets and offering counsel may be an honor or a burden. It's not obligatory. Your own mental health comes first.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 20): As bleak as your financial situation may look there are answers and you can figure them out even if they seem out of reach. It will probably take a lot of time and effort, but don't get discouraged. You can do it!
CAPRICORN (December 21 - January 19): You were made to overcome hard times. Even when you feel old and worn out those are signs of your work and accomplishments. Don't forget to rest and charge your batteries, but your perseverance can overcome anything.
AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18): Your darkest fears and nightmares are keys to powerful revelations. If you can face down your demons and unlock those mysteries you will be stronger than ever. Filthy gossip is the best kind, but it's a terrible distraction from necessary work.
PISCES (February 19 - March 19): The future looks bleak, but your imagination will find ways to make it through. Ignore fair-weather friends and party queens. You need to talk with those you know you can count on through the toughest times.Jack Fertig, a professional astrologer since 1977, is available for personal and business consultations in person in San Francisco, or online everywhere.
