February March 2019
Hello March! February, thankfully, is behind us. Now, we are ready for a bit of some much-needed change.
Get ready, March 5th is coming. MERCURY RETROGRADE IN PISCES – On March 5th, we will need to overcome confusion in our life. Before beginning any new projects, research before jumping. Over the next few weeks, think. Be logical--not emotional.
And for those that observe, Lent is March 6. We are now entering the season of reflection for all.
Hello Spring! This year, the Sun enters Aries on March 20th, which occurs the same time of the Spring Equinox. This is a wonderful day for all to start new personal projects, as well as clearing out mental and emotion clutter.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20) —Happy birthday Pisces! You cannot expect to get along with everyone you meet. If people or situations rub you the wrong way, it would be wise to grin and bear it. You will be better off in the end. Trust me. Simple tasks and communications may seem labored, but hang in there. A change of scene and outlook is what you need. Splurge and have a spa day. Go visit that friend you’ve not seen in ages. Better yet, take a mini-road trip for the weekend with a loved one. Focus on the positive and try to keep past negative events and feelings at bay.
Aries (March 21-April 20) —You know that a certain relationship must end, but you are unable to bring yourself to make that final step. Let the next couple of weeks ride out, dear ram, and you will find that saying goodbye is much easier than you originally thought. Try to laugh more, worry less and believe that things tend to work themselves out for the best in the end. Approach a family matter carefully. You need to regain your focus and deal with these matters appropriately.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) —A crucial decision requires your undivided attention—focus. Your current business situation involves new people. Get to know their strengths and weaknesses and be patient. For both work and home, learn to be less rigid and try to live a bit more moment to moment, rather than by routine—and learn to do more than just talk. This may be a difficult month for you, but you will soon see that your efforts are helping you move toward a more favorable and content place.
Gemini (May 22- June 21) —Your words and ideas travel at light speed, leaving a strong impact wherever they pass. But you need to remember that words can oftentimes leave a lasting impression—both good and bad. Be careful. While you want to split yourself in two, you have no time for limited boundaries. Spend quality time with your loved ones and travel. Go into the country; hit the road in search of adventure and inspiration. The more people you bring along, multiplies your chances for an amazing time.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22) —You may feel luckier than usual over you the next few months. If you play your cards right, things may turn out to your satisfaction. However, you must not forget those that got you there along the way, little crab. Join forces with other dreamers to make things come alive. This is a time when the friend of a friend comes in very handy. Whether you're hitting the road or broadening your perspective, it feels like the perfect starting point.
Leo (July 23 – August 23) —There are some things you have hoped for that do not happen this month. But this doesn’t mean your time won’t come. Hide your disappointment. Your patience is legendary, and your roar, even more so, but if you wait, you will see that events will soon fall into place. Remember to try not to let a loved one control you over this issue. Pursuing your financial goals will be an important focal point for you this month. A business deal that appears reasonable should be pursued. This opportunity may not come again.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22) —Now is the time to dust off that idea of starting your own business. There may be a market for your networking skills that you usually do for fun. You could wind up helping people make new connections with their businesses. With your talent, skills, and let’s face it, that personality, why not get paid for doing what you love to do. After all you are a natural salesperson.
Libra (September 23 – October 22) —Unwelcome obligations crowd in on you. Even if you don't want to see your relatives, they would like your company. Make the best of your week. You are the only person who can decide if your time is wasted. If you wake up in a melancholy mood, there's no reason why you have to remain that way. Treat yourself to good food, good music, great friends, and set aside some time for your favorite hobby.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) —Have faith in someone's motives, even if their method has you shaking your head. You are more critical of yourself than others who do not notice your shortcomings. Try not to micromanage those around you. Upward mobility is not a myth to those who have earned it. Remember, any changes you may make at this time are likely to be permanent. Think before you act.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 22) —You tend to be a leader and everyone sees that. Don’t let other people draw you into their drama. Try not to waste your time. Just nod your head and walk away. Opportunities to go out with clients or colleagues are more fun than you think, and it is critical to you to close some business deals more quickly. While all work and no play tend to be your focus, you need to make a plan create a social life and that cruise you’ve been dreaming about.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) —The end of a project comes sooner than you thought. Moving on is glorious. When you do what you enjoy, you run into a prime opportunity. Singles meet singles. You may find that in this moment of your life, you meet many people similar to you. They share your interests and talents. Enjoy the choices. Just try not to be competitive with these new friends and perhaps, potential love interests.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)—On the work front, you will be highly recognized for your endeavors. A colleague and/or your immediate superior brings to light your previous achievements that helped the company financially. And for this, you will be compensated in both title and salary. Enjoy and celebrate. Try not to impose restrictions on yourself. Complete the projects that you need to do and do not allow others to influence you. Stand up for what you believe and the principles that you stand for. When it comes to love—hang in there. Do not rush a love prospect. Remember, only fools rush in.
On April 8th, the Solar Eclipse asks everyone to find their center.
Three Planets in Retrograde: It is true. Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn. This month, there will be a new moon in Aries on April 5, and Jupiter will go into retrograde in Sagittarius on April 10. Saturn and Pluto are the outer planets in retrograde. What this means is that this will slow the discovery process down for all.
For everyone, this time is about focus and re-balancing and get ready for a whole new 18-year cycle. Now is the time to begin new or finish old projects—whatever they may be, as the universe is supporting and guiding everyone until October. Metaphorically, April will be a time for all to make your idea, platform—whatever it may be—no matter how difficult —a reality—and see it through until it is a success.
But April will be difficult for some, worse for others. There will be struggles—but in the end, we all rise above, stronger than ever. Who this will impact: Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo. For these signs, it will be about facing the past, personal reflection, finding peace, foundation and love with family and friends.
Aries (March 21-April 20) —Happy birthday Aries! You have some very important decisions to make this month, little Ram—and you cannot do it alone. Listen to family advice when it comes to both personal and financial affairs. Keep your wits about you; stay level-headed. This month, when it comes to business, make sure it is YOU that is in the driver’s seat. If unattached, a prospective mate is attracted to you by your drive and ambition. Your sense of humor helps you to be more persuasive with others.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) —With the three planets in retrograde, you will feel angst the most, this month, but I promise, this too shall pass. There will reflection of the past, and you may want to ignore it, but listen to your inner voice. Remember, this is the season of new beginnings, dear Bull. I recommend you not necessarily forget, but instead, forgive and move on, so you can finally have the peace you deserve.
Gemini (May 22- June 21) —With Jupiter in retrograde this month, for you, my double-trouble sign, this means time for you to embrace your friends, family and loved ones. For you, this month is all about commitment and partnerships. It’s time for a new you. For quite a while, you have been out of touch. Take advantage of this newfound time on your hands and enjoy. At work, you will be rewarded for your efforts—whether in promotion or monetary form.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22) —This month is all about setting goals and abiding by them. You need to look forward, instead of in the past in order to grow and succeed. For career: you can’t get ahead if you are unwilling to do the work, play nicely with others and invest for the long term. It’s also never advisable to loan fellow employees’ money or personal belongings. At home: Take the opportunity to make changes in your home environment. If you have children: if you’re not prepared to give them the time and affection they need, you may face difficulties.
Leo (July 23 – August 23) —Lucky Leo! One of the few signs that the retrograde benefits from this month is you! You will find that while you will suddenly be interested in beginning several new projects and visiting many cities this month, or eve joining a few new clubs, it is key to finish what you start and not to overextend yourself. So, before you begin, think carefully—because what you may start now—whether it’s you and your hubby taking a trip to Greece, or Salsa dancing, learning Mandarin or how to jet ski, you will be doing from now until October.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22) —There is going to be major transformations in store for you this month, both at work and at home. But before you grab the bull by the horns, take a breath, step back and ask yourself, “What do I really want?” Take a minute. Take a few days. Now is the time to take time for you. This month, you are going to need it. Go take a long weekend and visit college friends or family on the coast. Grab the moment, or create your own dream opportunities. You deserve it.
Libra (September 23 – October 22) —This month is all about connections and communications. With Jupiter in retrograde, there are endless possibilities for you—just as long as you are willing to take some risks. There is an opportunity to expand your knowledge (and latent abilities) in the world of innovation and the arts. This new awareness enables your career to take off in unexpected ways; be ready for travel at a moment’s notice. Note that a flexible work routine is best for you. Make room for delays and unexpected changes and be open for new ideas.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) —Oh, Scorpion. Let it go. “Que Sera Sera.” Whatever will be, will be. It is time that you too, have made your peace with whatever demons that you’ve got in your head. You have so much to give. So many valuable contributions that you have made—and still have yet to make—to the community, to your family, friends, school, and/or and to your career. And there is still much more to be done. Do not let this time get you down. Through creative thinking, and your willingness to change and flow with the tide, you will see there is much success in store for you. Your patience is also crucial. One in authority may expect too much, however you come through with flying colors. Romance thrives.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 22) —April brings you creativity, romance and self-awareness. Take advantage of these gifts. You are generous to a fault, and this has always brought you popularity. But try and focus on being generous with those that warrant it and with yourself. You have many talents. Learn to embrace them. Try also to enjoy this month of the three planet-retrograde and take time for yourself. Do not seek to achieve everything at once. Start gradually, and then build up to where you want to be. This month, you find new love for keeps. Anything is possible this month for you.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) —This month, it is all about balancing home and work for you. While you may have leadership skills and the confidence to get things done in the office, you are not your usual self and feeling less self-assured and would much rather be at home. That is A-OK. Your reputation precedes you. You have your friends and family as your support system even if you are not your usual outgoing self. Remember, this month is all about reflection, so think about what it is you want to accomplish. Those that matter most. Where you want to go. May will be here soon enough.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) —You’ve always spoken your mind. This month, you will be hard to control. While everyone loves your openness, work to be clear and concise in what you say and how you say it. Remember that whole sticks and stones expression? Words can hurt. A big decision that you have been struggling with, will be made for you, and now, April will be about bringing you clarity, harmony and peace. Now is a great time to write a personal ad or send a romantic note to someone special. You'll think of a totally original way of expressing yourself that will definitely get you noticed.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)—This month, new opportunities present themselves to you. You will have to decide between two relationships: professional and personal. Before you leap, relocate or do anything extreme, consider how you might be able to marry the two (pun intended). When in doubt, do nothing or go slow. A strong emotional connection may make you feel vulnerable. That is okay. Deal with the feelings, by either slowing that new relationship down or taking a break. This allows you to reflect and figure out what it is you really want. If it is an existing relationship, you may decide you want to take it to the next level. If that is the case, consider planning a small get together with friends and family.
In the first few days of May 2019, Mercury will be very active in Aries. Mercury (planet of the unexpected) on May 6th and Venus (love planet) on May 15 will be joined by the Sun in Taurus. What does this mean? Even the most sedulous person will be his most carefree. In May, all signs will be more spontaneous and impulsive—from spending on frivolous items—to even a nine-day love affair! But do not fret: Mars will be enter Cancer following May 16th, which will ground us before any dramatic events or changes in our lives are made.
Full Moon: There will be a full moon in Scorpio on May 18th. Many will become aware of their deepest (and before now, unknown) desires.
Also of note: Remember beginning this year, Saturn, the planet of karma and responsibility, will fully manifest for the first time in 29 years, being home in Capricorn, the sign which it governs, and will remain there until 2020. Why this matters: As previously mentioned, this involves dedicating more time and attention to building something important for yourself, with both discipline and integrity.
Retrograde Alert: Pluto will be retrograde in Capricorn between April 24th and October 3rd. Pluto has been in transit through Capricorn since 2008, and will continue to be until 2024. Why this Matters: This will influence the attitude toward material values and possessions — enabling all signs gain new insight into approaching and managing their finances.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) — Happy birthday Taurus! You are coming out of your shell, dear bull. While you are still loyal to all of your past relationships from the past—friends are the family we choose—you will meet new friends that will open up new doors for you. Whether close to home or through travel, these relationships will open up new doors for you. But don’t take your eye off the ball on personal or investment matters. Your love life is in focus this month when you notice that there are many shared parallels and coincidences. Step back, and deep breath, be objective and ask yourself, “Is this where you are meant to be?” If the answer is yes or no, figure out how you can either keep it going and build on it and improve, or change your course so you can to where you want to go. But remember, and as a wise person once said to me, “Where ever you go, there you are.”
Gemini (May 22- June 21) —For you, this month, it’s all about making better decisions—personally and professionally. While it’s easy to think about yourself (and your other self), you need to think about your loved ones—friends, family and partner. Remember: communication is key. Without the flow of language and the exchange of ideas, life wouldn't be nearly as much fun. But, whatever you end up doing, ensure that you are around people. This will help you at work and at home. You can rise to challenges others throw at you. If anybody wants to race or bet, you're there. You thrive on competition. Trust me: Your time is coming.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22) —This year has been a turbulent year for you, dear Crab, and this month, you will begin to have all of the “feels.” There have been many changes, new responsibilities, and given your nature, you likely want to discard them all and run and hide. Don’t. Wait it out. While you do have a tendency to trust others and situations more then you should, this time, your gut was steering you in the right direction. But, if the situation isn't working for you, you can always back out gracefully.
Leo (July 23 – August 23) —“I get by with a little help from my friends….”And in May, you will be leaning on your besties to help you get through this month more than usual. That’s a-okay! Your friends always have your back, even if you don’t talk every day. If you do brunch, Friday night get-together, whatever it is—have a girls-something, so you can relax and just be YOU. You have your needs. This restlessness your feeling part of the planetary shift. Listen to your inner voice, take a deep breath, and pretty soon, it’ll be June.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22) —Affinity groups support your speaking up in the voice that you should use but rarely do. In general, you're much better off among the people who want the same things that you want. If you can't get out and mingle, you'll probably strike up valuable acquaintances through volunteerism or newsgroups. Why limit yourself to the formal way of doing things?
Libra (September 23 – October 22) —You have a special ability to adapt to any situation and make anyone you meet feel at home. Your ‘secret power’ to cheer up people wherever you go can be put to good use in other aspects. Think long and hard how you might use it. You could be an artist because your vision is so clear in many directions. Your powers of concentration and magnetic personality attract many admirers. Be generous with the people who see you as a resource. If the shoe is on the other foot, they will be just as good to you.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) —This is your month of play. Experience new adventures. Experience life—but do not lose sight of the bigger picture or your sense of self. Your sense of humor has a way of pulling you out of trying times. Try not to be so heavy and deeply philosophical in regards to relationships. Your partner may seem standoffish at first, but will still be supportive. A family member, who you might not expert, has wise romantic advice.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 22) —A territorial dispute lies at the root of a seemingly harmless disagreement. You may need to gather together your forces to defend what is rightfully yours. Once complete, you will achieve great things on the work front. Remember: All success and fortune gained comes with great challenges along the way. Your friends and family, who helped you, are proud. Don’t forget to thank them.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) — Many people know you for being a patient person that uses a great deal of diplomacy. Your reputation precedes you. Find an ally or mentor (or both) that can help guide you on your way (both career and at home). This person can help you see what opportunities are available to you, that perhaps you are unable to see—and enable you to secure them. But you must stand up to face stupidity with tolerance and gentle firmness before you secure the ‘great reward.’ It is you, and only you that can repair this chaotic madhouse.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) —“Ignorance is bliss, tis folly to be wise.” Try not to feel frustrated. Everything was supposed to run smoothly, but the universe seems to have other plans. You will soon see that what you have endured, there was a reason. Open your mind, heart and eyes. You have learned so much. Take a step back and see. There are hidden obstacles to face where none should have been. Summer is almost here, dear Aquarius.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)—Join forces with other dreamers to make things come alive. This is a time when the friend of a friend comes in very handy. Whether you're hitting the road or broadening your perspective, it feels like the perfect starting point. If you play this advantage the right way, you can stretch it for a week or more.
Aries (March 21-April 20) —It is time for you to let go. This month, you will be spontaneous. You will run through the park. Feed the ducks. You will put your feet in the ocean. Have some wine in the sun. You're overworked and under compensated. Surely this can't be healthy. Revamp your schedule before you get burned out and crash into a downward spiral. Rearrange your obligations as gracefully as you can. You need to fill your free time with fun and no pressure. Make time for parties and other events.
Intuitive Astrology Francine Tesler
Hello Summer! There are two major aspects to watch out for this June 2019. The first, will be a feud between Uranus and Pluto, which is strengthening the influence of these two planets, will help to transform our lives. The second, will be strong play between Saturn and Uranus. This will be felt throughout mid-August 2019. There may be more situations that are full of tension and stress. Suck it up and go with the flow.
Gemini (May 22- June 21) —Happy birthday Gemini! This month is all about you. However, to make the most of this celebratory month (and year), you must work on refocusing and on re-balancing of your two personalities. This is key to both inner harmony and happiness (as well as sanity—along with those around you.) The Sun will oppose Pluto in your relationship house on the 12th. Use this time wisely: identify why you let the crazy out in your relationships more so than the smart and alluring part of you. Trust your instincts and try to inspire instead of irritating others: they will really appreciate you for it. The influence of Uranus and Pluto indicates that transformations are taking place in workplace for the better. Resist becoming irritable or impatient with people in authority. Matters will improve by the end of the month as long as you aren’t tempted to make sudden changes you may later regret.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22) —This month, you will get closer to becoming the person you want to be. Your creative side will awake around the 23rd. Whether it’s writing or teaching, embrace this side that has always been the ‘real you.’ This is a great time for networking. However, be cautious when it comes to romance. You will still find that you need to work out some issue on finding work/life balance. But do not worry. This will come in due time. Transformations in your world are coming.
Leo (July 23 – August 23) —The month of June brings about time of deep reflection, for you, dear Lion. Whether it is about career, home or your community, you embrace it all and jump into all projects—whatever they may be, feet first. Now, you are your most creative, and you do not hold back. You are also putting all of your energy into your own well being—which is wonderful: purification and health—both inside and out. Later this month, due to Saturn and Uranus, you may feel restricted and have an ill perceived limitation of your freedom (perhaps when it comes financial matters). These are fabrications in your head and be assured that matters will improve before the end of the month.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22) —The planet Jupiter rolls through your sun sign until September. What this means is that you are evolving and there are many opportunities for growth. Be patient and watch as you turn into a butterfly. Focus on what your goals and priorities are continue to forge on. Remember: thoughts create matter, and so do you. Keep things realistic and flexible. Virgo is the most sensitive, vulnerable sign of the zodiac. Direct that sensitivity toward your loved ones and friends. Because no matter what, they will always have your back and support you (even when you don’t know they are there). You are going to come out on top.
Libra (September 23 – October 22) —Your ruling planet is Venus, which is the highlight of the planetary show, this June 2019. What does this mean? Insight and inspiration will be sparked. For you, this is a period for the soul and not the mind. Venus is retrograde in your ninth house of higher teachings. Maybe you are searching for answers to some of your deepest questions or looking for the “right path” for you. Keep yourself inspired and keep on going. You will find that “path.” Remember that anything you do requires effort. Make that effort to “make change” and you will see that you will succeed. However, note the tense aspect between Saturn and Uranus, which impacts much of the middle of the month, may make you feel restricted. It will pass. Don’t overreact or do anything too out of the norm that you may regret later. Things will improve by the end of June.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) —Hey wild thang, you are hot as the month begins. Things will be heating up as time goes on. The energy of transformation abounds and we all know that is appealing to scorpions. Friends are looking to you to be “the life of the party.: And while that may seem flattering and all, be careful. Actions you do this month cannot be undone. Be cautious. For you, this month should be a balance of fun, inspiration and profound clarity. If a new path or direction is what you are looking for, then take a step back, take some private time, and listen to your intuition. And lastly, the New Moon early this month helps you make a fresh start with your home, family and love life.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 22) —Helpful Jupiter remains in your career house through September. Your career will be the focus until September. June gives you an opportunity to clear away thoughts that might block your optimism and confidence about approaching those changes. Feelings and passions may seem foggy, but clarity and wisdom will win the day. Vacation or rest and relaxation are a requirement this month.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) — June is the start of a new you. Enjoy the new growth and opportunities that will become evident over the next month. Starting now, into the next nine months, you will grow and create a healthier relationship with yourself. There is a realignment going on all aspects of your life. Redo your resume, start looking at real estate etc.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)— June kicks off all things for you. The summer of magical possibilities. The New Moon in your sign early in the month suggests that new beginnings are possible, including summer romance. Neptune will be retrograde in the middle of your sun sign. You may be insecure or uncertain, but do not stress. You will be filled with feelings of passion and creativity. Focus on your home and comfort. Do something wonderful with the family. Nurture yourself big time. Be on guard about falling into an old rut at work. Transformational changes in your life will bring more income or property, and yes, peace.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)—As the month begins, there is some tension between your needs and emotions and your career life balance. Stop putting the expectations of others above your own needs. Get things out in the open. The sky is not going to fall if you define your life on your terms! Be with the family. Keep the company of like-minded, inspiring friends. You are likely to be restless and somewhat irritable, needing more air or space, which could result in conflict with others. The situation improves by the end of the month, however, when the Full Moon sees a resolution to a matter concerning your closest relationships.
Aries (March 21-April 20) —From June 5th until the 19th, Mercury transits its home sign of Gemini which is in your third house of communication and the mind. Clarity and perception are very sharp now. These resources will serve you well with family issues. Be patient with your innovative ideas. A shift in energy at the solstice helps you to feel closer to that dream. Do not hold yourself back.
Taurus (April 21-May 21) —During this month the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Saturn take up occupancy in your first three houses of identity, values and the mind. It is a great time to explore what makes you tick and what you want. Challenge yourself. Remember the influence of Uranus and Pluto will have an ability to transform anything that you focus on. On your path, however, there is no going backward, so embrace the new. Creative energy is strong this month and giving full expression to it will be a steadying influence. Career issues are likely to go well, however, as the New Moon early in the month suggests that a new beginning is possible.
Mercury will go retrograde on July 7th through July 31. Traditionally, retrogrades in Leo impact those in power: leadership; governments, rulers, presidents, as well as companies and organizations and the individuals who run them. This Leo retrograde begins with a Cancer pre-shadow, so the actions and the response of the people or the governed will have an immediate an effect on all moving forward. It will feel like Midsummer Night’s Dream for most, but summer is just getting started. Don’t be alarmed, just know this phase is only but a moment and will soon pass.
Mercury Retrograde at the Personal Level
Traditionally, when Mercury goes in retrograde, we can expect issues with communications. This can be with any means: verbal, through correspondence (a glitch with the postal service or delay with an Amazon delivery—hey, it can happen), or with technical means (i.e. cell towers or cable down, so emails and text messages don’t go through and are not received.). I like to think it also reveals a shadow or disowned component in our own awareness, interaction with others and with the world around us.
Remember that Mercury rules the signs Gemini and Virgo. During this time, you find that it will impact some individuals more than others: some may be a little prickly and hostile, while others, more pleasant and docile. Some may jump to conclusions and want to pick a fight, while others, will become more hopeful. Go slow, choose your battles wisely and remember this time gives us a chance to think, be more mindful of ourselves and those around us, and take a leap of faith in some instances.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22) —Happy birthday Cancer! This month, you will be hit the hardest with the Mercury Retrograde cycle. Try not to let it affect you too much, my dear crab. Remember that this month, emotional buttons can be easily pressed. It is up to you if you want to react. If you are single, you may have trouble finding a balance between a relationship and work. You may feel overwhelmed. Everyone may be demanding too much of your time right now. Help anyone who truly needs you, but also take time for yourself. You may have to pull back in order to give more. Don’t neglect yourself by being overly concerned with taking care of the feelings of others. Don’t ignore key hints or ‘tells’ that let you know something is off or not quite right.
Leo (July 23 – August 23) —When the Lion or Lioness acts out of pride or feels the need to make the “grand gesture,” he/she/they may overlook unforeseen consequences. Try not to be over-generous with your time or support. You may find yourself juggling schedules and priorities. When caught by pride, my proud Leo, you can be at risk for taking on tasks beyond your experience or abilities. Don’t be overconfident: I know you can do anything, but don’t put yourself at risk by letting the dice fall where it may. Also, this month: you will have an opportunity for fun, and romance. Take pleasure even in the mundane activities of your everyday life and share your energy with those around you.
Virgo (August 24 – September 22) —Mercury rules Virgo, and thus there is much greater sensitivity to the retrograde cycle. During this period do not let yourself have tunnel vision with projects at work or at home. Don’t rush whatever the task, otherwise, you will overlook the best solutions. Remember that the most creative solutions reveal themselves when you have an open mind. A friend, coworker or partner appreciates your opinion and ideas, helping to give you the much-needed confidence to take that next step—whatever that may be. This month, single Virgos are the charming all, and coupled Virgos are more interested in quiet moments of candlelight, wine and walks on the beach; while creating a special evening of romance.
Libra (September 23 – October 22) —This month, avoid conflicts at all cost. It will be difficult. But smile. Exercise. Go to the shore. Read a book at the beach. Do not get pulled into anyone else’s drama. Trust me on this. This retrograde will impact you as well, dear one. Another contribution toward the retrograde cycle can occur through delaying action, not taking the initiative or avoiding confrontation: thus, not addressing certain matters that may lead to difficulties later on. It’s a fast month. Enjoy the actual fireworks—don’t be part of them.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) —This month, little Scorpio, it is important for you to learn to clear and let go of any/all emotional baggage. Let go of the drama in your life. It will help you be more present and be more engaged with “your people,” whether school, work or at home. Do not let emotions cloud or disrupt what you value. Also, boundaries are good. Set them and have others honor them and respect you. Of course, when Mercury is retrograde in Scorpio, all of the above becomes more significant. Self-assurance is different from being vain. You excel among people that refuse to judge you. Creative people find the perfect incentive to embrace a new style. Romance on a budget is sometimes more fun than with unlimited funds; you learn how to be more inventive.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 22) —During the Mercury Retrograde cycle do not ignore the little things. As they say, “God is in the detail,” and this is especially true for you this month. For you, double and triple check your work. Confirm everything. Focus on checking and asking others for their input. Ignore the false sense of just “knowing.” Confirm, confirm, confirm. Often the hint for sun in Sagittarius that their sense of knowing is incorrect occurs when the choice is made to ignore checking the facts. Singles should put their powers to good use this month: take a leap and arrange a first date with someone you find especially interesting. You never know: a quick coffee could turn into a whole lot more.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) —Dear Capricorn, micromanaging, and not allowing the full expression and input of others can cause great distress this month. If you continue on this way, it will not end well. Mistakes and errors will follow when people feel used or do not feel well treated. Put aside your own feelings or best interests. Instead, this month, focus on bettering yourself. Find an activity. Join a group. Connect with others you don’t already know. This will enable you to grow both emotionally and mentally, and help you express yourself in ways you’ve never imagined. This retrograde for you, is about self-awareness.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19) —There are several things that you need to be mindful of in order not to set yourself up during the Mercury Retrograde cycle. Often the issue is about the need to reestablish a sense of rightfulness and freedom. Do not let yourself get caught up feeling trapped, held back or challenged. Especially at the beginning of the retrograde cycle, it is important for cool heads to prevail and to recheck if a decision or course of action is beneficial or needs to be revisited and adjusted. This month, you will find that both colleagues and clients have never seen anyone with such a passionate style. Seize this moment and reap the rewards before the novelty wears off. You'll knock someone's socks off with your wit and intuition. For singletons, this month, you may find yourself venturing into a new relationship. Don't wear your heart on your sleeve until you know exactly who it is, you're showing it to. Couples should try not to be too critical. This may lead to pointless bickering. If you have some real issues, make sure they stay on track.
Pisces (February 20 – March 20)—Do not let others absorb your energy and emotions. Negative patterns put Pisces at risk of being more confused, and clouds their judgments and purpose. It is important for Pisces to reestablish themselves by tuning to their own spirit and feelings in order to retain clarity. This month, be ready to have a plan with tangible steps toward action. Do not trust that things will turn out okay, because remember, it is the (insert scary music) Mercury Retrograde, and that trust may be misplaced. Singles will be supercharged early in the month if their focus is getting to know someone new and potentially very special. In fact, you may not be able to focus on much else. For couples, make plans to spend quality time together.
Aries (March 21-April 20)—Try not to set yourself up for challenges with the Mercury Retrograde cycle. Keep a steady focus while defining your objectives. You are more likely to react seeking independence through impulsive actions and rash decisions, leading to carelessness and mistakes. The easiest way to understand a big issue is to see how it may affect you. You can respect others and still avoid getting tangled up in their affairs. Cautious optimism is your best bet for now. You may feel caught up in the fun of a new relationship but do not lose your perspectives. Your heart is in good hands, so spend your love instead of your pennies. Let your sweetie know you love them by showering them with special attention.
Taurus (April 21-May 21)—This month, for you, it will be all about positive growth and change, both on the career and home fronts. During this mercury retrograde be sure to set defined boundaries. It will help to follow on your path of goals. Take some time for yourself to re-energize, regroup and reconnect with you. Then, do so with your loved ones. The earlier this can happen, you will find your mind more at peace, and your heart, fuller. If in a relationship, spend more time talking, laughing and enjoying the outdoors and each other instead of watching a movie or running errands. You will find you are both and the relationship is better for it.
Gemini (May 22- June 21) —Mercury rules Gemini, you will have a greater sensitivity to Mercury Retrograde cycles where it applies to communication, local travel and scheduling. Be sure to fact check everything this month. Also, it is important to recognize opinions that pose as facts, but are mere hearsay and false beliefs. The first few days of this month will rough for those in relationships. Emotions may seem to be running high. Instead of giving in to an impulsive struggle for control over your emotions, stop thinking so much and just relax. Singles may want to withdraw from the social scene and examine their priorities. You'll feel the weight of responsibilities keeping you from acting on your own, but don't despair. Determination and confidence will pay off in the long run, and a little opposition keeps you on your toes.
