Weekly horoscopes: Jan. 11–17
Named after the Roman god of messengers, Mercury is the planet that's the most connected to tweets, hunches, dreams and hearsay. Anything that provides information to help you get from here to there is ruled by Mercury. Mercury was also connected to treasure maps. In fact, the X that marks the spot is Mercury's symbol. This is something that will become very important this week when a Mercury/Jupiter trine sends you on a series of fools' errands where you have to complete certain outrageous tasks. It could begin with a request, favor or assignment. These will seem meaningless and ridiculous, but you should follow through on every requirement because they'll inevitably lead to a golden opportunity, a hidden benefit or a secret stash that you would never have uncovered otherwise.
