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.

They might regard you as uncannily prescient, deeply compassionate or the living embodiment of a cherished fantasy. You’ll have a hard time understanding what they suddenly see in you, but if that’s what they want, then why talk them out of it? This can be wonderfully gratifying, as long as you don’t take advantage. Make reasonable requests and they’ll be fulfilled. Get too grabby and you’ll face a wave of resentment after the hypnotic spell lifts on Aug. 29.
