Mercury continues to go retrograde this week backing into Virgo from Libra. Whatever you thought was settled, may not be so firm after all. Be prepared to change your plans and review all set-in-stone arrangements.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 20)
Aries are apt to take on way too much work. What seemed easy and doable before suddenly turns into an avalanche of stuff that needs to be done right now! Ouch! Be extra careful about accepting any projects and making promises that may turn out to be hard to keep. Smile and see if you can defer things and try to just relax.
TAURUS (APRIL 21-MAY 21)
Are you experiencing creative block, Taurus? Your mind was full of fascinating thoughts and artistic impulses but it may seem that these ideas have floated into the atmosphere and evaporated. Don’t sweat it, though. You can still have fun while you wait for your muse to return. Allow others to take charge and for now, amuse you.
GEMINI (MAY 22 - JUNE 21)
Family get-togethers may get a little out of control, Gemini. Invitations are either not received or their responses go astray. Nothing here is dire. It is just annoying. Follow up with errant relatives and see how you can best bring everyone together. Home projects in general may take a couple of tries to get going in the right direction.
CANCER (JUNE 22 - JULY 23)
Even if you think that you are being very clear in your communication, you may experience some disconnects. What can you do, Cancer, to make sure that your message gets through? My advice is to think carefully and craft your message so that it’s especially clear. Then ask for feedback. This back and forth is short lived. Be patient.
LEO (JULY 24 - AUGUST 23)
Your money seems to flow freely, Leo. Errr, maybe a bit too freely. Watch your spending and be sure that you have plugged up any leaky holes in your wallet. It is okay to enjoy life and treat yourself (and others) to a bit of extravagances but you don’t want to squander your resources. Thriftiness may be your best move for now.
VIRGO (AUGUST 24 - SEPTEMBER 23)
If first impressions are lasting impressions, be sure that you are totally buttoned up when you meet new people this week. Anything or anyone new needs to start from a good place and can then go forward in a successful direction. That means that your every move has impact. You can do it, Virgo. But do it very carefully.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 24 - OCTOBER 23)
Any secret that you have tried to keep under wraps may be revealed in an unexpected way, Libra. This can cause some confusion but will be good for the long term. Mysteries and back room actions have a way of tripping us up eventually anyway. So allow a bit of personal release and see how your overall well-being can improve.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 24 - NOVEMBER 22)
Whatever you are planning with friends and groups of people may change or go in an unanticipated direction. Some may not get the message and others may reply but not to you. Confusion can stir up and frustrate you, Scorpio. But there is an easy fix; Get your itinerary completed and show it to all participants … in person if possible.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 23 - DECEMBER 22)
Any long term or professional project may go a little off course, Sagittarius. Your ability to manage the course may need a reset. But this is not the time to give up. It’s the time to quietly reassess what it is you need to do and who you need to meet to get things moving forward. Research and plan now and outreach later.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 23 - JANUARY 20)
Any travel plans undergo a big change, Capricorn. Reservations switch without you knowing it. Luggage can get lost. Whatever snafus can happen, may just happen. But welcome each with a sense of adventure. You never know how interesting this upcoming vacation can become. Also maintain a sense of humor…
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 21 - FEBRUARY 19)
Your love life may become one big confusing melee, Aquarius. Your acts of adoration might not be timed perfectly. Your romantic notes may fall into unexpected hands. Keep your heart open to the possibilities but also understand that anything is possible. Sometimes this can become a funny memory. I guess we will have to see.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 20 - MARCH 20)
Communication is very important in relationships. Now you may find that your communication may not convey how you really feel. So keep your patience, lower the emotion and listen carefully for clues in any deep discussion with partners, Pisces. Remember that sometimes, saying nothing is the strongest message of all.
