Take a look under the hood
Mercury is the planet of curiosity. And when it forms a trine to Pluto — like it will on Aug. 21 — then this can make you obsessed about getting to the bottom of things. This is great for in-depth research, navigating bureaucratic channels or comparison shopping because you won’t stop until you find what you’re looking for. Mercury/Pluto trines are famous for unearthing hidden secrets, solving mysteries and discovering amazing deals buried deep in the sales racks. Mercury/Pluto trines are also good for checking out inconsistencies. Whether it’s something that doesn’t feel right physically or numbers that don’t add up, you’ll find that you uncovered something in a timely fashion. This will allow you to nip a potential problem in the bud.
