ARIES

Mar 21-Apr 20

♥♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

A potentially yow-chy week with Mercury retrograde. How to handle it? If you can find someone to look at the details, you’re golden. Mercury tends to sputter and hold things up until it thinks the flow is smooth. Feeling the effects of last week’s solar eclipse is like Venus hovering opposite Aries—which it is, making promises. Be sure to “get the goods” quickly.

TAURUS

Apr 21-May 21

♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣

Not the week to nail things down. Done immediately, they’ll stick, but there may be tension later. Done midweek, they’ll slide around and you could lose interest. Mercury wants to nitpick, but is feeling spaced out, so there’s confusion. Better to enjoy Venus, your ruling planet, as it floats in your work sector. Consider the money, just don’t plug in the numbers yet.

GEMINI

May 22-Jun 21

♥♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣

This is a potentially confusing week, Gemini. Your shared planet of rulership, Mercury, is retrograde. Not that you can’t leap over that fact in a mind maze, but Venus is in your solar fifth house of romance. That’s where the crossed wires, delayed e-mails, and words that don’t come out right can seem to take on a personal aura. They weren’t meant to do so, so don’t.

CANCER

Jun 22-Jul 23

♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣

A week of stops and starts, though it won’t bother you much. Mercury, that handsome messenger, is retrograde, but even this is small change for your understanding depths. The main grating factor is that it’s in your solar third house of communication. Others may not say what they mean, or actually hear what you’re saying. Take your time, and give them a second chance.

LEO

Jul 24-Aug 23

♥♥ ¥¥¥¥ ♣♣♣

Just when you had everything figured out, someone finds another wrench to throw into the works. This particular one is called Mercury. Of course, it’s retrograde. Did you save all those notes and charts? They may come in handy. The rewards happen simultaneously, as Venus floats about in your solar third house. What you hear can bring money, beauty, and emotional relief.

VIRGO

Aug 24-Sep 23

♥♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

The Sun is in your sign, no doubt about it. For Virgos born this week, gather up all the gifts and treasured moments calling out to you. Ruling planet Mercury is retrograde, so ouch. If it rubs up against you going the wrong way, take some time off to soothe your sore toes and tired puppies. Venus is in your solar second house and may provide you an expanded financial base.

LIBRA

Sep 24-Oct 23

♥♥ ¥¥¥¥ ♣♣

There’s a gold star in your favor this week. Mercury is retrograde in your solar 12th house, meaning dreams and karma may collide. At the same time, Venus is happy to be in Libra. That’s right, your ruling planet is now in a power position. So while the rest of the zodiac works to avoid the usual trip-ups, you can cash in the glory and glitter that you truly do deserve.

SCORPIO

Oct 24-Nov 22

♥♥ ¥¥¥¥ ♣♣

What you hear and what you sense may be at odds this week. If so, you’re right on track. How can this be? Mercury is retrograde, swirling information in incompatible directions. Target what you’d like to focus on, as Venus whispers sweet nothings in your solar 12th house. This may be a dream leading you to a treasure—or to beauty and comfort, which are actually in the works.

SAGITTARIUS

Nov 23-Dec 22

♥♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣

Sagittarians are having quite the time. This relates to responsibilities you have taken on. Saturn in Sag requires constant working away at the walls that resist you (read: granite). Mercury is retrograde of course, balancing the grace of Venus in your solar eleventh house. Friendships are blessed. Invited to something wonderful? Double-check the details so you get there on time.

CAPRICORN

Dec 23-Jan 20

♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣♣♣

Your optimism may be cautious, your thoughts guarded with uncertainty. That is exactly what it feels like when Pluto is retrograde in your sign. Which it is. The walls are up, then they’re down, then back up again. What is a Capricorn to do? You’re not famous for pampering yourself. Rather than wait to be reincarnated as a Libra, why not stop and indulge in a special treat!

AQUARIUS

Jan 21-Feb 19

♥♥♥ ¥¥ ♣♣♣

It’s not always about the money. Often, but not always. Find the tiny moments that can change your life. They may not cost much, but they can be found everywhere. What life means and how you fit in the bigger picture can undo much of what you’ve been taught. You’re in a flow you can share. Thus you’re revitalized, just as you wonder how your next inspiration will arrive.

PISCES

Feb 20-Mar 20

♥♥♥ ¥¥¥ ♣♣

You’re not losing energy; you’re gaining an ally. Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and the Sun garner a position where you don’t have to do it all on your own. If it feels unfamiliar, that’s because it is. It hasn’t happened quite this way before, and it won’t last forever. Thus, let your week be less Mercury retrograde, and more Venus to the rescue. A sigh of relief can be yours!
