All Signs: “Honey, I’m home!” Mercury retrograde is back! Actually, this week it is slowing down before it goes retrograde next Tuesday. Nevertheless, because it is slowing down, avoid purchasing “Mercury-related items” like cars, trucks, bikes, computers, cell phones and printers. This week, silly mistakes will occur more than usual; and we will hear from people we haven’t heard from in ages. But all is not lost. Mercury retrograde helps us to finish old business. It’s the perfect time to reassess things and refine our approach to something. Oh yeah – it’s not all bad. What’s all bad? The fact that three slices of pepperoni pizza are 1100 calories! (And that’s not peanuts and forget about dry roasted.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Partnerships and close relationships are still your main focus. Keep an eye on bills, inheritances and insurance issues because something surprising or out of the blue might impact these areas on Wednesday. By Friday, power struggles with an authority figure are almost unavoidable. Grrr. Don’t push your luck because the harder you push, the more you will create opposition to you. Plus, don’t do anything underhanded – that will backfire. Fortunately, by Saturday, surprising news about your health, or a pet, or something related to your job will please you! Nice way to end this week!
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You’re still keen to get better organized and work efficiently. More power to you! Midweek, someone might throw you a curveball (probably a close friend, partner or spouse). It could be a fun surprise – or not. By the end of the week, something going on behind the scenes might upset you or turn into a power struggle. However, very likely, you will be quiet about it even though you feel quietly anxious within you. Try to let this go. You don’t need this! And hey – life is short (and fat). By the weekend, a surprise invitation will please you. Something unexpected related to sports, social outings or your kids will occur. Admittedly, it might also be an accident-prone time for your kids, so be alert.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This continues to be a lighthearted and playful week! However, expect a few surprises Tuesday/Wednesday. Computer glitches, misplaced paperwork, unexpected news about a staff member, something unusual to do with your health, or a pet, or your job might occur. This could be why a power struggle with a friend or a group takes place on Thursday/Friday? Don’t make a big deal about this because something could trip you up and backfire! Use your high energy to get work done instead of arousing opposition to you. Fortunately, by the weekend, something unexpected will impact home and family. You might buy something unusual for your home? An old acquaintance might visit? Hmmm.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Home and family continue to be your focus, which is why you’re happy to cocoon at home. You might interact with a parent more than usual. Be vigilant with kids midweek to avoid an accident. Keep your eyes peeled! However, a surprise invitation might please you? By the end of the week, a power struggle with a parent or someone in position of authority might occur. Things could get nasty so don’t push your luck. (Do not be ruthless or underhanded because then things will backfire.) Keep your cool. By the weekend, a fun and unexpected event might occur? It could be a short trip, exciting news, or an encounter with siblings or relatives that you did not expect? It could be fun and enlightening!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This continues to be a fast-paced, busy time! You have a full agenda and you’re keen to express your opinions to others. Midweek, something unexpected might impact home and family. Something unusual might be introduced into your home or a family member might have surprising news? Towards the end of the week, power struggles, especially about politics, religion or racial issues might take place. Don’t take the bait! Steer clear of all this because you don’t need this angst. Instead, get ready for a pleasant surprise by Friday/Saturday that might be a gift of money? A boost to your earnings? A clever, moneymaking idea? Ka-ching!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Money is on your mind right now. In addition, you’re thinking about your values, which is a good thing. (It’s important to know what is important.) This is great week to buy wardrobe goodies for yourself. Be careful on Wednesday because something unusual and unexpected might occur. It could be fun news or a surprise. However, it could also be an accident, so pay attention to everything you say and do. On Friday, power struggles about shared property, insurance issues or debt could arise. They could be nasty. Do not pull a fast one. By Saturday, something fun and unexpected will make your day! It could entail travel or meeting someone unusual. Whatever it is, it will expand your world and be stimulating!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
With the Sun in your sign, you are still empowered! This is why you attract people and favourable situations to you. (Make the most of this.) On Wednesday, something unusual might affect your earnings or your possessions. Keep your eyes open so your possessions are not lost, stolen or damaged. On the positive side, money might come to you or you might have a clever moneymaking idea. Yeah! A power struggle with a partner or close friend by the end of the week will test your patience. Try to distance yourself from this because it will only create a vibe you don’t like. (You need harmony in your surroundings.) A pleasant surprise on Saturday will change your day and make you feel happy. That’s nice.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
You’re still keeping a low profile because your year is ending and your birthday will soon arrive. Enjoy this time out. Nevertheless, brace yourself for a surprise on Wednesday. You might encounter someone you least expect to see, especially from your past. Or your schedule might go haywire? Power struggles at work or related to your health (or even a pet) might occur at the end of the week. Be careful, because if you come on too strong, you will regret it. (It’s a tricky situation. Don’t throw your weight around.) On Saturday, you are surprised to hear from someone you like – someone creative or artistic. Possibly it’s a group? Whatever the case, it will turn your crank!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You continue to be popular and yes, everyone wants you on their team. This is a good week to think about your goals and how you can make some of your dreams come true. You might feel unsettled about something on Wednesday because things aren’t turning out the way you thought. You might have to regroup? Avoid some kind of ego battle with your kids or with a romantic partner on Friday. (It could be a quarrel about choice of vacations or what to do in a social situation. Or it could be flat out power struggle with kids.) Don’t do anything you will regret later. The good news is that on Saturday, a parent, boss, teacher or even a member of the police might do something that pleases you. It’s also a surprise! (What might that be?)
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You continue to look good to everyone because the Sun is still at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering spotlight. (We like this.) Since you look so competent and capable – make your pitch! Ask for what you want. Timing is everything. A friend or a member of a group might do something that surprises you on Wednesday. (This could be interesting.) However, be careful because power struggles at home or with a family member are likely towards the end of the week. Don’t insist on getting your way because this will create further conflict and nasty confrontations. Stay chill! On Saturday, an unexpected chance to travel might drop in your lap. Or you might hear from someone from afar – a pleasant surprise indeed!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’re still keen to travel or do something different because you’re hungry for stimulation. Well, this might happen because on Wednesday, something unexpected related to parents, bosses or authority figures will catch you off guard. (Let’s hope it’s a nice surprise.) Unfortunately, some kind of power struggle with siblings, relatives or neighbours might take place on Thursday/Friday. Be careful driving. This energy can engage others in a negative way. Stay cool. This could morph into a pleasant surprise on Saturday when an unexpected gift or money comes your way. Perhaps someone will do you a favour or let you use something they own? (It’s nice to receive a perk.)
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This continues to be a pretty intense week for you; fortunately, fair Venus is opposite your sign and this modifies any emotions that might escalate to be over-the-top. Wednesday is a mildly accident-prone day so be careful. Pay attention to everything you say and do. However, at the same time, unexpected travel plans or a surprise related to politics, religion or racial issues might catch you off guard. Could this be what leads to a power struggle about money or possessions on Thursday/ Friday? (This could be nasty.) Fortunately, by Saturday you will enjoy unexpected, fun times with a close friend. Sweet!
