Daily Horoscopes are written according to where the Moon is located.
For that reason you will see the Moon information 1st paragraph (below),
the 2nd paragraph is the house that affects your Sign, and the 3rd paragraph is
the horoscope itself based on the information of the 1st and 2nd paragraph.

Astrology is a map and all you have do is follow the Signs. ™ 

THE MOON IS IN GEMINI TODAY! Keywords: flirty, flighty, fiesty, the chameleon, variety is the spice of life, colorful (all colors), spontaneous, communication, body language, gadgets, transportation, siblings, neighbors, mental abilities, mental telepathy, the mentalist, thinking, brainiac, intellectual, puzzles, basic education (grades 1 thru 12)

The Gemini Moon is moving through your 3rd house of communication, writing, mental abilities, lower education from 1st to 12th grade, early learning, immediate environment, short journeys, local travel and travel within your own country. It also rules neighbors, siblings and extended siblings such as cousins, nieces and nephews.

While we are in the first few days of Mercury Retrograde coupled with this Moon in Gemini, it is VERY IMPORTANT to get it crammed into your head how much organization, scheduling, routine and the activities of daily living play a role in your Life. Mercury Retrograde during the Scorpio Sun can be very focusing and a huge wake up call for a lot of people. Scorpio is definitely not a BS'er, does not mince words and cannot stand wasting resources, including wasting any time. This can serve us all very very well. In fact, during Mercury Retrograde you can really use this time to get your act back together. Think about it, there has to be a Good reason why the Universe (God) has Mercury turn Retrograde three times a year. The way I see it, we must need it, that's why. Why over-think it? God did a lot of things in three's and for Him to give us three do-overs a year (with Mercury going Retrograde three times every single year) and within those three times a year we get three do-overs as we cross over the same degrees three times. Now folks, I find that pretty damn profound. How can anyone say that God is not Good? Geez, how lenient, tolerant and merciful can He be? But, then again, I am an Occam's Razor type of thinker where I think the route of simplicity or the least amount of assumptions is the way to go. We Gemini's are the simple minds of the zodiac who rules the 3rd house of basic education and mental abilities. In other words, we don't think harder than we need to. Check out those keywords above for Gemini. Further, the razor states that "one should proceed to simpler theories until simplicity can be traded for greater explanatory power." The more popular version of the razor states, "entities must not be multiplied beyond necessity."

So what I'm saying folks is use this Gemini Moon, Mercury Retrograde and the Scorpio Sun to call it as you see it and stop kidding yourself. You know what you need to do to get yourself organized, healthy and back on track . . SO DO IT! Remember from yesterday's writing, Mercury is the natural ruler of both Gemini (thinking, communicating) and Virgo (health, fitness, daily routine). This Scorpio Sun is intense, passionate and has will power that is second to Leo. In other words, it has a fired up presence even though it is a water sign. Scorpio's ancient ruler is Mars (aggression and impulse) while it's modern day ruler is Pluto (volanic, explosive and fiery). You don't have to wait until things explode into a fiery ball in order to make a change. How about you fire things up and make a change? I did update your Monthly Sun Opportunity in your Monthly Horoscopes (see link below) and when you read this you will see how Scorpio is a transformational sign. Using Mercury Retrograde to back track on your Life in order to make a serious change before you progress forward is seriously awesome energy.

Typically, I come out of Mercury Retrograde super back on track both personally and professionally. I also pay SUPER CLOSE attention to the sign that the Sun is in during Mercury Retrograde. For all Aries' on the planet this would mean take all of this information I have been writing to you and use it to sharpen your 8th house focus because Scorpio rules your 8th house of (OPM) other people's money, joint resources, the spouse's money, wills, insurance, beneficiaries, money through others such as bonuses, prizes, legacy and mortgage banks or lenders. Mercury is Retrograde in Scorpio during the Scorpio Sun. By the way, the Sun moved into Scorpio today, so check your Monthly Horoscope (link below). Yesterday in the last paragraph of the Daily Horoscopes I wrote about how Gemini and Virgo (both ruled by Mercury) rule your 3rd and 6th houses. I think when you sharpen these two areas, it will impact your 8th house. Use it all baby! Either way, the 8th house is theme of Scorpio for you (Sun and Mercury right now) as indicated in your Monthly Horoscopes. And as usual (you knew I was going to say this) check your personal Natal Chart to see where Scorpio shows up for you rather than as an entire population of Aries'.
