Retro Mercury has been leading us astray for the past month but this week the old marauder changes direction. Not a moment too soon. The past few weeks have seen more than their fair share of mis-communication but now the clouds part and you can mean what you say and say what you mean. Hmm just what do you mean by that??

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
How many times do you have to tell your family the same darned thing? It has difficult to get your point across but now you come in crystal clear and non-nonsense. Aries must be true to themselves and pursue their own special dreams and desires. You cannot live through other’s expectations. In fact, strive to do the unexpected. You never know where it will lead you.
TAURUS (APRIL 21 - MAY 21)
If you’ve experienced run-ins with neighbors recently, try to mend fences now. Taureans seem to know what to say to bring heated situations from a rapid boil to a slow simmer. Turn up the charm! But if the right words don’t come and you simply can’t say anything nice, give ‘em a big smile and dump weeds in their side yard when they’re not looking.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Geminis may have taken a financial bath recently as their greedy ardor ratcheted up their risk. Now you can begin to reassess and reinvest what’s left. Seek the right financial advisor and ask the right questions. Keep your eye on the bottom line. The next financial bath you take should consist of quarts of champagne instead of boiling oil.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Others have cramped your style as your desire to please may have inadvertently trod on a few toes. Breathe a sigh of relief, Cancer; you can now charm the pants off just about anybody and should quickly make up for lost time. Spend a little energy planning new projects with new acquaintances as you begin to plot your next big move. Move a mountain.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Leos were clueless to the machinations of evil nogoodnicks. Now, a light shines onto your deepest darkest secretive corners and you have no impediments to sharing all and going forward. Who knows? All this liberation may encourage you to reach out and try a few new exotic things. Just how exotic is up to you. Will it involve a tub of margarine and a small painters brush?
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
Have you alienated any friends over the past few weeks? There may be too many to count, Virgo. Although they have been fairly forgiving, the strains may still be showing. Don’t wait. Make up for lost time and any misunderstandings with a few get togethers. Compadres will be closer to you more than ever. How about a group grope ... err hug?
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
It is time to repair your corporate ladder as your Fortune 500 readjusts this week. Not a moment too soon - you were beginning to slip into the belly of the mailroom. With the right meetings and careful conversations to the powerful few, Libras can recoup any possible losses and even receive a helping hand up. Be sure to use every finger.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Legal processes may have had their snafus and landed you in contempt of court with hostile witnesses. This week however Scorpios can rest their case and show their briefs. But don’t rest on anything else; You will be given a rare opportunity for luxury travel. Either that or a possible trip to the corner honky tonk for some crazy honky tonkying.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
If you find yourself swimming upstream without a paddle, be prepared to happily coast along this week. Sagittarians find more interesting and sexy possibilities as the week progresses. Look sharp, lover. You load up your hard drive, seek more pop ups and have quite a bit more zip in your corruptible files. Just steer clear of any spam or viruses.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Capricorns might have run their dearest and closest relationships over hot coals recently. Now that you have grilled things over from rare to well done it’s time to sit down and examine the aftermath. You begin to yearn for permanence and balance. Don’t spend time dreaming of what might be. Get off your duff and start cooking on a high fire.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
If work has been especially annoying recently start to welcome it’s change of direction for the better this week. Aquarians seem to have improved their negotiation skills as well their ability to better organize their thoughts and projects. Maybe it’s time to ask for that long overdue raise. If they refuse, you can always parlay your skills in the office up the street.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Your creative block is unblocked now. Your innate gift of gab is unwrapped, displayed and justly admired. Pisces can finally let loose and fully enjoy themselves now that the chains of responsibility are hacked off. Make a bold statement. Ask and you shall receive. But be careful of what you demand- you may just get it. Hmm and then what?
