Today, clever Mercury begins its journey through idealistic Aquarius. Don't be afraid to reach for the stars. Settling for second best will be a waste of valuable energy, particularly for Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. People are receptive to sweeping changes and cutting-edge ideas. Overhauling an outmoded institution or changing an outdated rule may be welcomed with open arms. In addition, determined Mars makes a sextile to wise Jupiter. This is a fantastic time for educational advancement. Taking a class, visiting a foreign land or studying a foreign language could have tremendous benefits. Don't be afraid to venture into unfamiliar territory. Knowledge is power. Looking ahead, compassionate Venus will enter humanitarian Aquarius. This will be a great time to perform volunteer work. Fundraisers may also be successful. If it's your birthday today, you might devote yourself to a social cause in the coming year. Fighting for the underdog might appeal to your sense of justice. You might travel to a foreign country as part of your humanitarian work. Being an agent for positive change will bring spiritual satisfaction.
