Are you talking to yourself? Consider doing so as Mercury in loud Leo retrogrades and communications run amok for the next three weeks or so. Havoc reigns from missed calls to errant tweets. Every musing can become bruising if we don’t think carefully before we speak. We can all do that ....can’t we? Oops!
(Michael Jackson had Mercury in Leo)

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
One could say that you can never have too much fun. Usually that is true but too much fun can indeed be too too much. Aries can now pile so much on their plates that things begin to spill. Be discerning and enjoy in moderation, as difficult as that may be. Gluttony is often your fall back position but now you should savor one thing at a time. And no names please!
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
Leave yourself plenty of “to do” reminders on post it notes around the house. You may forget to do things. Taureans find that their domestic agenda does not make sense. Confusion reigns and details get lost in the general melee. The next couple weeks will teach you to handle and harness an array of loose ends. Loosey gets goosey so don’t get cooked.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
You talking to me, Gemini? Your more outrageous opinions are blasted across the cyberspace. This may not be a bad thing; It can bring change and attention. But will it have lasting power? You can’t move a big boat on a gust of hot wind alone. Turn up the motor mouth and be sure that your propeller doesn’t get caught in the weeds... unless that is your thing.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
If you think that your finances are out of control you are right. The week brings confusion and miscommunication where money is concerned. This means that you might waste a few bucks on a scheme that you think is failsafe but is really failure prone. Nothing is guaranteed so hold on to your hard earned dough Cancer. There is plenty of time to waste it later.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Every faint impression becomes an indelible mark. Every Leo thinks they are quite the charmer but what you say may not be what you really mean. Chances are that you will rub certain folks the wrong way. Rather than rubadub elbows why not take a rest from socializing and find comfort and solace in quiet personal growth. Err, how personal?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
While you are convinced that spirit guides have your best interests at heart, they could in fact lead you astray. That is because there is static on the psychic line and what you hear is not what they are transmitting. Avoid getting caught up in mystery and intrigue, Virgo. Keep things crystal clear and save the fog machine for the next party.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Plans gone awry this week? Chalk it up to an innocent miscommunication and give friends a little extra latitude. Libras find themselves in one place and their posse in another. It seems that even best laid plans become whipped and scrambled. Why go crazy? Enjoy the unexpected serendipities that come with chance and just make an omelette.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
This is not be the best time to push for that promotion or pivotal interview. This week makes almost every professional attempt a political gaffe. It is not worth the risk to try now. Retreat to your cubicle and rearrange your paperwork while you bide your time. Scorpios will have their chance at success soon enough. Meantime, is that spinach in your teeth?
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
If you think that travel nowadays is annoying, try not to travel now. Reservations get lost along with your luggage. Sagittarians may prefer to roam the house rather than the world but if you cannot contain yourself, be sure to check and recheck all details of the trip. It would be a shame to have your suitcase relaxing in Rome while you cool your tootsies in Podunk.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
There is now another way to leave your lover - with lots of miscommunication. No matter how much you would like to wax poetic and declare your love, it is best to let your actions speak louder than your words. Capricorns are apt to inadvertently say just the thing to scuttle their love boat. Better keep all hands on deck ... among other places.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Ever political Aquarians can come down with a case of foot in mouth. This will be especially true in any one-on-one conversation that is intended to help solidify and strengthen relationships. You are just not getting your point across. Nor are you listening. Perhaps this is a good time to let things simmer quietly. Let it become a potboiler next month.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
What a great time to catch up on backlogged projects! Pisces are infused with energy and determination. However, as you tackle everything with verve, you stray from your initial intent and wind up with results far different from what you need or expect. Read all instructions, carefully listen to advice and take copious notes now. Or just relax and let things pile up.
