ARIES

Mar 20-Apr 19

♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

There’s a very interesting astrological blip, so don’t doubt yourself. Mercury moves into Aquarius for a hair’s breadth, then rescinds back into Capricorn. How does that affect you, you may ask? More than the usual Mercury retrograde, this has to do with progress and cutting-edge changes within groups and friends. It did occur, you’re correct. And it will be back. It just hasn’t anchored yet.

TAURUS

Apr 20-May 19

♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

The blip that is Mercury moving retrograde is a bit of a shocker for Taurus the Bull. That’s because you’ve known all along there was going to be a change—you just didn’t know when. You felt it, it happened, and then … it didn’t show up? Teeny movement into your solar 10th house of career and it’s back to the spiritual perspective once more. It’s coming—trust—and look for mid-February to bring news.

GEMINI

May 20-Jun 20

♥♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣

Oh, Gemini. You give the world a gift of breezy butterfly wings. No one can lift spirits like you do! Your mind is so fast, there’s never any reason to hold on to the “heavy”! Now look at the mirroring effect of Mercury as it moves into your solar ninth house briefly, then edges back into the land of partners and family legacies faster than you can blink. A mistake? Not at all! Just a second reflection!

CANCER

Jun 21-Jul 21

♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

Watch for the hairs to stand up on the back of your neck: Mercury has gone retrograde. It tiptoed into your solar eighth house of partners’ resources, then did an about-face and retreated back into dealing with that person, directly. Single or spoken for, if you saw a light at the end of the tunnel, it has not permanently closed. You and the stars can reassess about actions to take until mid-February, when you’re good to go.

LEO

Jul 22-Aug 21

♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣♣♣

An interesting week, all the way around. Mercury popped into your solar seventh house of partnerships … and then, boop! Right back out it retrogrades. You saw a glimpse of what can be, in fact what is, very real, only to have a disappearing act which made you wonder if you had imagined the whole thing—you haven’t. But with the current astrological lineup, focusing on work helps the stars bring it all back again.

VIRGO

Aug 22-Sep 21

♥♥♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣♣

Enjoy the strangeness and the multiple new windows opening. Virgos are going through a bit of a renaissance, so there’s fresh air and blossoms all around, even at this time of year. Mercury moved for a moment into your solar sixth house, bringing up questions about work. But it’s immediately back into your sector of creativity and romance, where you will really find your answers this week.

LIBRA

Sep 22-Oct 22

♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

Things go into balance. Believe it; feel it and let every part of this move into a permanent place in your muscles. The sense memory of knowing what it feels like helps you to bring it back just when you need it this week. Mercury has gone retrograde, after a tiny blip of an eyeblink in your solar fifth house of romance. Progress, check. Regression, check. Matters at home prepare you for Mercury direct.

SCORPIO

Oct 23-Nov 21

♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣♣

What was under the surface may be revealed as Mars in your sign makes waves. This includes events, boxes that wouldn’t open, and hidden feelings. It may be just as much of a revelation to you, as to anyone. The freedom and breathing space is a bonus. With Mercury retrograde almost immediately this week, your ability to stand firm in your decisions could be tested, but not for long. Your instincts are still right on.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov 22-Dec 20

♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

Sagittarians tend to be original and inventive. You’re also spontaneous, authentic, and enthusiastic. You’re not the type to use pat answers to dissuade others from expressing themselves, that’s for sure! Also not a control freak, you may wish others would stop entering that arena. Mercury retrograde gives you a taste of news you’re curious about, then regresses to money matters for reassessment. Trust the timing on this.

CAPRICORN

Dec 21-Jan 19

♥♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

Ah, freedom! Not a word often associated with you, as a responsible Capricorn. Because you like stability and endurability, you’re generally willing to give up a devil-may-care, seat-of-the-pants approach to life. But since Pluto has shaken all that up, disrupting it mightily, watch for Mercury retrograde in your sign. It’s a trickster. Believe in what you know, not what others may try to project onto you.

AQUARIUS

Jan 20-Feb 17

♥♥♥ ¥¥¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

You have a lot going for you, though you might appreciate validation. Mercury moves into your sign for a heartbeat, then traverses right back into your solar 12th house. The thing about Mercury is, it likes connecting and conversation. The solar 12th house is karmic, both hard to see into and to pin down. You haven’t done anything “wrong”. You’ve done it all right! Take a breather and step out.

PISCES

Feb 18-Mar 19

♥♥♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣♣

Things are slippery, and sometimes you’re happy just to have them slide out. Mercury crept into your solar 12th house of dreams and internal landscapes, then quietly moved back to connect with friends at group gatherings. While you may not access all that you were shown just yet, your subconscious mind is building a new foundation to hold the treasures you are about to receive and to share.
