Weekly Horoscopes for July 27- August 2, 2015

Aries
Your authority may be tested on the job this week, and though you don’t want to be heavy handed your competitor may not give you a choice. Someone will push your buttons just to see how far they can push you; go ahead and do what you must so that you make it clear that you are not a lightweight. Don’t forget to send that thank you card you’ve got hanging around on your desk

Taurus
Patterns are becoming clear, and there is no mistaking that some of your friends are only ‘friendly” when they are in need. Listen to the people you can trust in your social circle, they will help you figure out who stays and who goes. A family member has a new pal to “hook you up with”, be receptive, just because it didn’t work in the past doesn’t mean it won’t work out better this time

Gemini
Family secrets will just not stay in the closet; every time that you ignore them or try to cover them up they just get bigger and more burdensome. It’s time to look the head of your clan in the eye and demand the whole truth so that you know what to prepare for and can protect your loved ones. You may need more from your romantic partner than they can give, do you really want to live this way?

Cancer
A wayward sibling will try to put the blame on you for their latest calamity; you have taken more than your share, hand them back all of their emotional baggage and let them know you are not carrying them anymore. It’s not that no one cares how you feel; it’s just that you are too closed off for them to even approach you. Lighten up a little and you will find someone you can share with

 Leo
The fire energy in the sky is making you feel unstoppable; and you will be, as long as you pay attention to the obstacles (other peoples’ needs) in your way and go around them instead of blazing through them. You’re on top of the world now, but later you may regret burning bridges later. Keep your eyes open for that special someone to make an approach; when you get them in your sights don’t hesitate because there may not be a second chance

Virgo
You will know when to make that major career move this week; just make sure that you don’t let your self- doubt get between you and your goals. If you can get out of your own way there is no stopping you. Take a moment to look at the reality of your romantic situation; are you waiting for a perfect someone that may not even exist? Make sure that you don’t have unrealistic expectations in a partner because you are afraid of opening your heart

Libra
Leave no stone unturned as you look for that jewel of a gift for a special friend. This is a chance to invest in someone close to your heart; they will know how much you actually know and appreciate them. Take a pass on a get rich quick scheme even if it sounds plausible; it may be a good idea, but the people involved are not worth the risk

Scorpio
A scheming old friend wants to have a laugh at your expense, but they can’t do any damage if you don’t let them in. Forget about worrying about being rude, say no to no-good people and put an end to a vicious cycle. Go through your storage bins; you have plenty of goods that can be converted to cash quickly there is no need to go to your credit to get out of a bind

Sagittarius
The energy of the universe is pulsing through you and it may be very difficult to sit still right now, but it is very important that you don’t take off too far too fast. There is someone close to home trying to get your romantic attention, so take a look around the neighborhood before you look for love abroad. Elderly relatives may need advice from a younger tech-savvy person; volunteer for the job because they will teach you more about life than you teach them about texting

Capricorn
It’s been a heavy couple of weeks, but the clouds are starting to clear away. Just be sure that you are getting enough rest before getting back to your hectic schedule. Make an effort to apologize to an old love for your past behavior. You don’t need to actually get involved with them again, but they could use the help healing

Aquarius
Business is booming, but it may be hard to choose which project needs your attention first. Prioritize by deadline and you’ll get to everything as needed. You may feel more philosophical about your love life than usual, and it’s a good time to share those feelings with your partner. It’s not always easy for you to open up so get it all out while the words are flowing

Pisces

A love from the past will want an explanation for the way that you left them; this could be complicated because they will not care if you are currently attached or if they are invading your privacy. Give it to them short but sweet, and then make it clear that this is the end. You will be pleased about a nod from your superiors at work; take note of what they liked so that you can keep it up

Saturday, July 18, 2015

Weekly Horoscopes for July 20-26, 2015

Aries
You’re feeling closer to your circle of friends right now, but know that your lover may be a little jealous of the time that you are giving them; try to strike a balance without tearing yourself in two. Your popularity will also get a boost on the career front, just don’t volunteer for anything unless your heart is really in it

Taurus
You will finally get the success that you deserve, but you will have to share the spoils with someone you don’t really like. A coworker or colleague will also get the same honor as you; don’t let your resentment spoil your good work. Trying to make everything perfect for a visiting guest may be hospitable, but you could go over your budget quickly if you are too concerned with the furnishings; don’t worry you are enough for them, forget the fancy sheets

Gemini
Following the crowd could lead you into trouble this week; just because everyone else is maxing out their credit cards to go on vacation doesn’t mean that you should too.

A friend wants to go into business together, just make sure that you don’t invest more in their company than you can afford to lose of their friendship

Cancer
You knew that the choices you are facing were imminent; but it doesn’t feel any better knowing that now.

More money than expected may arrive just in the nick of time this week; put some to the side for the next crisis so that you feel secure

Leo
Self- promotion and marketing have never been hard for you, but right now it may be wise to take a step back and let it all fall into place. You have made your mark, but if you push any harder you could push potential contacts away. Make a romantic evening more special by writing something from your heart while your emotions are in full bloom and the poetry is flowing; it may be awhile before you find words like these again

Virgo
You shouldn’t feel guilty about having a little fun with a visiting friend without inviting your regular pals along. Sometimes the intimacy between two friends can be more wonderful than the vibe of a crowd; you can always bring them back a souvenir. Your career may not be satisfying you any longer, but you can’t just join the circus. Take some clown or juggling classes on the weekends so you can at least pretend to run away for a while

Libra
Desire has found you once again; the only problem is that your target is already attached to someone else. Do some digging to find out where their relationship stands before you make any advances. A friend will want you to help them cover up a major mistake; don’t get involved- they got themselves into this mess and they can get themselves out

Scorpio
You are finally getting the cooperation that you need; but it’s hard not to be suspicious as your new helpmates are the ones that used to torment you! Just enjoy the help, and keep your eyes open just in case. That old flame is coming back around whether you want them to or not, so have a speech prepared so that you don’t get tongue tied and it’s easier to stand your ground

Sagittarius
While your intentions are totally wonderful, it is best not to get involved in a friends’ romantic crisis. You will only look like the bad guy when they get back together and team up against you. Don’t let the magic get away just because you’re not looking your best when you when you meet an attractive stranger. If they accept you in pony tail and sweats chances are you will always look good to them

Capricorn
The best way to stop unwanted calls is to just not answer them or block them. You should not feel guilty about protecting yourself from harassment even if you used to love them. Your core values are undergoing a change and it’s time to find like minded people to explore your new growth with; wrap up any projects or commitments you have going with your usual crowd so that you wander off without leaving anyone hanging

Aquarius
Make the most of this weekend by networking with the people in your local area. There are a lot of opportunities for friendship and business right around the corner that you never knew about before so explore now to find those connections. Serious decisions about your future are unavoidable right now so set aside some time to meditate on your circumstances and consider all of the players involved before pulling the trigger

Pisces
You may want to imagine that your relationship is perfect the way that it is, but its time for a dose of reality. The little snags that you overlook now will become huge problems later if you don’t confront them now. Just be honest and let your partner know what bothers you and how you would like them to adjust their behavior so you feel more secure. Think twice before ratting out a coworker for a minor infraction. You may do more harm to yourself; no one wants to be known as the office tattle tale

Weekly Horoscopes for July 13-19, 2015

Aries
Put the extra energy you’ve been feeling to good use and finish up old projects in the early part of the week. It will feel good to know that all is in order as you make fresh starts with the new moon on Wednesday; and will give you more free time to enjoy those old friends showing up on your doorstep. Just make sure that your needier pals know that your couch is only a temporary landing place and a not a permanent residence

Taurus
More than ever it’s so important that you keep your own interests in the forefront when making major decisions. It’s great that you are so caring and considerate of others; but if you make choices based on what others need you will only short yourself in the long run. Take the time to catch up with your love interest this weekend; if you don’t someone else will

Gemini
Trying out a new hobby can bring a new social crowd into your life, but be ready for someone one close to be resistant to your new friends.  Someone will resent the time you are spending with others and may resort to sabotage to keep you close, so find a way to fit everyone into the group or decide who and what you really want

Cancer
You can feel everything right now, the hurt, the joy and sorrow of everyone around you, so it’s best not to make important decisions right now. Your empathic abilities are making it impossible for you to know which feelings are yours and which one are those of people close to you. Some time alone or with a trusted friend or pet out in nature will help you feel more grounded

Leo
It’s time to confront a close friend or family member about their addiction issues. You can see the damage that they are doing to themselves, and if you ignore it you will kick yourself later for not taking action when it’s too late to help them. It will be almost impossible to keep from spending on luxury items; there will great deals on everything you want. Just be sure to keep your receipts, check return policies, and buy insurance, etc. to protect your purchase

Virgo
The same boring routine is just not cutting it, let an old friend push you out of your comfort zone this week and you may discover that desire still lives within you.  A technical glitch can cause chaos in the workplace this week; be prepared for delays, and know that the worst part is that the is no one to blame

Libra
Jet setting around with anew pal is great, but remember that the ride won’t last forever. Be sure not to take the people that you can truly count on for granted while you are making new friends. A necessary replacement part or accessory for your business tools will likely be delayed; you’ll just have to do it the old fashioned way for now

Scorpio
Let the sadness flow through you and wash away; if you try to hold on to bitter feelings after a betrayal it will be like drinking poison. The endings you are facing now will facilitate a new beginning so try to cut your losses and prepare for the future. A delayed inheritance will finally arrive, though it may be a little short due to sneaky relatives

Sagittarius
It’s odd, and kind of nice, that you are willing to give someone out of your league a chance out of kindness or pity, but it won’t turn out well. If you want to be a savior, rescue a shelter pet or sign up for a mentoring program because pretending to love someone that you don’t will only hurt you both in the end. When checking out real estate, make sure that the water pressure and temperature are something you can live with

Capricorn
It’s time to replenish your energy! You have been going so fast for so long that your body needs a time out. Try a spa day and consider nutritional support to give self-healing a boost. Family members may demand more of your time than you can accommodate right now, so let them know that you care, are supportive, but are unable to get involved with their drama until you get your personal health back in balance

Aquarius
Twisted situations may seem like a cosmic joke but can lead to serious happiness if you are willing to go with the flow. This is no time to cling to a specific outcome because reality can end up being better than anything you can ever imagine if you relax your grip on control. A friend will be able to offer you the resources you need in business, but just know that they will expect a return on their investment

Pisces

You may not regret the backstabbing you gave an old friend, but will you regret the consequences when they surface at just the wrong time. Even if you feel you were deserving of whatever they stole from you, others may not see it the same way and may cost you their trust. Take extra care with the food in your fridge; check the expiration dates for freshness

Weekly horoscopes for June 29-July 4th 2015

Aries
Bonds are being broken between some of your friends, and though your opinions count, now is not the time to let them be known; wait until the dust settles then you can chime in.

They need your help, but it will take some convincing from you for them to allow it

Taurus
If you don’t like what someone is rumored to be up to in your neighborhood, but make sure that you know all of the facts before you confront anyone or join the witch hunt.

Your healing process has you wanting to inspire others, but your partner/spouse may just need to enjoy the new you before following your lead

Gemini

Cancer
This massive influx of energy is really hard for you, so sit down and take care of yourself and ask for help when needed. This full moon opposite your sign will bring new blood into your family, and some of the old blood will wash off of your hands as you find out that you really are not responsible for the family dysfunction. The new revelations will make your romantic relationship bigger and better due to the freeing up of emotional energy; a hot sensual bath will help all processes along

Leo
A casual friend or neighbor may try to get you to take the heat or lie to authorities for their benefit, stay out of it and make it clear you want their negativity off your wave, now! Your personal people skills are in order in business, but it is important that you do not cross the line right now. Flirting or kissing up will only have a negative and possibly permanent effect on your reputation even if your intentions are good

Virgo
You could miss opportunities if you expect a certain outcome with an old flame; instead of focusing on the past, think about what the future may hold now that you’ve both evolved. You are feeling better and up to life’s challenges, but remember not everyone is on your wavelength, so don’t push others for more before they are ready

Libra
If you want to make a relationship last you have to compromise, and that may not be easy in this case because your ego is involved. Release and heal that old pain; it’s worth it for this new love. Make sure that you have a schedule set up for the next few work weeks. Its vacation time and you may forget which days you promised to cover to for a colleague or take care of an important function, so mark it down now so you don’t let anyone down later

Scorpio
If it’s not professionally appraised, authenticated and properly insured don’t even bother buying right now. There will be a time very soon for you to invest, but let the shaky deals pass and fall apart while you wait for a sure thing.

Sagittarius
Hold back that flood of tears until you are sure that there is a reason to cry!

A misspelled word or slurred syllable can throw you out of whack with a friend or sweetheart. Luckily, professional pursuits will finally straighten out, so be ready to work at the drop of a hat; who knows you might actually pull a rabbit out of that sucker yet

Capricorn
 You may need to pull back on the self-promotion this week, with the full moon in your sign on the 1st already has you in the spotlight so any extra may be considered bragging and work against you. However, its’ okay to enjoy the fuss when others are talking you up, just be gracious and handy with a return compliment to spread around the love. Enjoy some outdoor time; nature will bring the solutions you seek closer

Aquarius
You have more leverage than you know in a family situation, it’s just that you have to be bold enough to speak the truth, and that means relating to others like a grown up. Are you afraid of your maturity or someone else’s reaction to it? Push forward with travel plans with a new love, unless safety is a concern (check weather forecasts), the rest will fall into place without much effort

Pisces

Making a stand in the community is always a good thing, but this time your ego is more involved than your heart so stop and think about whether you can handle the consequences of your little protest before you start marching. Be kind when handling an unwanted guest this week; the good karma your rack up now will pay off for you later

Saturday, June 20, 2015

Weekly Horoscopes for June 22-28, 2015

Aries
It may be uncomfortable to have to follow a new hire’s lead in the work place but it’s very important that you toe the line until everyone can see how ineffective they are. If you complain you’ll look like the bad guy, so let it play it out and you will be back in charge very soon with the respect that you deserve. Shopping for a new residence can be stressful; call a realtor or management company to help you find the right living situation for you

Taurus

Not only will others show their appreciation for your skills, you will also be commended for your attitude, so enjoy the good feeling.

Gemini
It’s never too late to further your education, whether it be for your own enjoyment or to make a change in your career, so take the opportunities that pop up, especially the ones without a high tuition bill.

Cancer
It may be difficult to stand by when one of your beloved relatives hooks up with an absolute loser, but putting your two cents in right now may do more harm than good.

Take the time to let your romantic partner know what they mean to you so they don’t have any questions about your feelings

Leo
You’ve been picking on someone for quite a while and this week they will finally let you know that they have had enough.

Be careful with jewelry right now, it will be easy to lose; check that all of your clasps are in working order before wearing your bling

Virgo
Watch for a tendency to be over critical with your friends this week. It just may be that you spot room for improvement and you want everyone to be their best, but your delivery could really hurt some feelings if you aren’t careful.  Use subtlety and you can’t go wrong. Don’t worry about your performance when to comes to a new partner; even though it’s been a while, there are some things you never forget

Libra
It’s not like you really need the attention, so why are trying to steal someone else’s spotlight? Examine why you aren’t allowing a younger person to shine their light; jealousy is not sexy. Your community will finally acknowledge your efforts; you may be called to serve in a position of authority, but don’t make any promises unless you are sure that you can handle the position

Scorpio
The brutal side of family life is rearing its ugly head, and all you can do is hold on tight until everyone is done expressing themselves. The pressure has finally come to the point of no return; the good news is that there will be a lot of positive changes in the coming months once the dust settles. Let your love interest know that you care; you’ve been a little uncommunicative lately and they need to know that you’re still committed to them

Sagittarius
You may be doing a lot of research over the next few weeks, your curiosity is aroused and it may be just what you need to get out of your rut.

Capricorn
A lot of the decisions you’ve made lately are going to take a while to manifest in your life.

Keep any romantic plans private so that jealous people don’t get the chance to sabotage the good vibes

Aquarius
A new business venture will take you far away from your comfort zone, but will give you the skills you need to get to that perfect job, so try to stick it out. Play nice with others in your social circle this week, you may need a favor soon and you want to be on good terms with everyone. If someone only wants to see you on their terms, look into their background; they’re hiding something big

Pisces  

It’s time to offer an apology to that person you just can’t get out of your head. Even if you aren’t sure that they will remember what you did way back when, you need to relieve that ache in your chest.

Taurus

A family event will bring recent sibling tensions to the surface so be ready to defend yourself from the drama

Cancer
The white hot passion that you want from your partner is yours for the taking but uninvited guests could cause a drop in the temperature if you don’t handle them directly.

Are you an awesome chef in the kitchen, a whiz in the bookkeeping department (look to the 5th house, the house that Leo occupies, and your natal sun placement in your personal birth chart)? Well if don’t know, then someone is bound to let you know in a big way! But we must remember that with royal admiration there is also regal responsibility, so you may have your hands fulfilling your duties until you get your sovereign behind comfortable in that throne.

It is very easy under this transit to want to show your appreciation and adulation for the people that you love and are loyal to in your life in a material way, but that can hurt you later when that big bill comes in next month (July 1 Venus joins up with “big” Jupiter so hide your credit cards that day is spending is an issue for you). Show your affection and thanks with a lot of cards, letters (yes, hand written) and hugs and kisses instead of lavish and sometimes impractical gifts. (This will help ease the transition July 16 when Venus in practical Virgo and the Cancer sun will faint when they see how much money was spent on entertainment and largesse the previous month). We also need to be mindful of the fact that everyone will want to be seen and appreciated and that will make for some very colorful spectacles over the next few weeks. There will be a lot of hurt feelings when some personalities are overlooked on the VIP list in any area of life; a lot of egos will flare and if there is even a whiff of disrespect or indifference in the air when someone is showing their stuff, trouble can be expected, the fiery kind. Envy can get out of hand when the big boys start to compare their big toys and the old gals feel the need to outdo their pals so duck for cover when you see the green-eyed monster coming your way and count your own blessings instead of someone else’s.


Venus in Leo will bring out a lot of affectionate feelings and that can cause some jealous moments when gifts of friendship and hugs of gratitude can easily be mistaken ( especially with Mercury still retrograde and in the shadow for much of this transit) for something more. If in doubt about how much is too much, then err on the side of restraint, which will not be easy, but will avoid a lot of relationship problems. Take your romantic partner along and make them a part of the buying/planning process of showing thanks to that special boss, colleague or neighbor, so there is no mistaking the intention. Loyalty and fidelity are important Leonine traits and it will not go over well if your loved ones even suspect that you are giving your goodies to another lion in the tribe. Also, rein in your own territorial streak those claws can do a lot of damage, so get all of the facts before assuming that anything untoward is going on with your partner, your majesty!

Weekly Horoscopes for June 1-6, 2015

Aries
A goal that once seemed far out of reach in now clearly in sight; just know that you will need the full cooperation of your loved ones to see it through. That means that you will need to consider their feelings every step of the way; it may be a challenge, but totally worth it. A favor will finally be returned by someone you gave up on long ago.

Taurus
Wanting more is fine, but you have to make sure that you really want the things that you are buying and aren’t just trying to impress someone else. The shiny objects that you’re using as bait won’t work this time around, and will only block the progress you have made so far with your personality. A small but sentimental gift from a family member will have you feeling connected again.

Gemini
You may have some sudden pangs of jealousy this week when a sibling, or close cousin gets the attention from family that you feel you deserve. This sore spot may be rawer than you remembered and may take you by surprise, but know that this is the way to healing. A business contact may have more to offer than you know; accept invitations and be pleasantly surprised.

Cancer
If your commitment contract is starting to get a little too tight it’s time to confront your partner and let them know that you need space once in a while. That secure feeling of knowing that you’re wanted is great but not at the risk of suffocating the rest of your life. Keep tabs on a young relative that needs guidance; you may not be able to be there for them all the time, but you can make sure that someone s looking out for them.

Leo
Venus enters your sign this week so it’s time to enjoy the good life! Just make sure that you don’t go overboard when shopping. There will a lot of things on sale right now that will catch your eye. The good news is that your many admirers will be more than generous so let do the buying for you. A late night at the office will give you the chance to understand your coworkers better and make stronger connections with them.

Virgo
It may seem like a good idea to go after what you want, but first be sure that what you’re after is available. An attractive person that seems single may just be very private about their personal life, so know the facts before putting yourself in an embarrassing situation. A head nod from the boss will let your coworkers know that you’re the one to beat right now.

Libra
Before you use sensitive information to settle an old score, think about the consequences to your life now. Is it worth it to get back at someone who doesn’t even matter anymore? This obsession with the past will only alienate and create a lack of trust with someone you would like a future with. Make a special trip to visit a sick friend or relative that has trouble asking for help

Scorpio
Lock your doors this week; everyone will want your help no matter whether you want to give it or not. Engaging in power plays and arguments will get you nowhere, so just make yourself scarce when others try to get you involved in their schemes. An old employer will seek you out for freelance work; brush up on old skills and let the money roll in


Sagittarius
Pay special attention to the “spiritual moments” in your life this week. They are leading you towards something greater even if the message isn’t clear. Write own your feelings and a pattern (road map) will emerge. Allergies and other dietary issues can be a factor in your health right now; eat what feels right regardless of what’s on the label

Capricorn
A work mistake that you thought would stay on your permanent record has already been forgotten; feel the relief, but make sure not to let it happen again. Travel plans can cause problems with your romantic partner, especially where their family is involved. Try to be flexible, but insist that your comfort is important too. If you don’t make your needs known now, this will always be a problem so make and keep your own space while opening up to the in-laws.

Aquarius
It may be difficult to navigate an office rival’s behavior this week. A minor jealousy may turn into an explosion when you get all the accolades and attention from the boss. Their emotional response will make you feel like you have a bratty sibling rather than an adult colleague, but you still have to maintain your own professionalism.  Try to let it roll off your back and enjoy your success. Travel may be more difficult than usual so try to plan ahead and have alternatives routes if possible over the next two weeks.


Pisces

A work friend has been leaning on you for way too long and it will become apparent this week that it is taking a toll on your work performance.  It’s time to have a talk with your coworker and let them know that you can no longer carry their weight because you just don’t have the strength. A thank you card given to the right person will get you the social invitation that you want, so make it a grand gesture so you know you’re in the door.

A Sign by Sign Guide to Getting Through Mercury Retrograde 5/18-6/11/2015

Mercury is now retrograde in Gemini and will be stuck there until June 11, 2015. Expect a lot of reunions going on at this time. Communications from the past will affect everyone, but here is a little help for each sign to help get you through this time. Just watch what you say and how, where and to whom you say it! 

Aries
You will feel stimulated by this retrograde as you get an influx of energy from old friends that causes an awakening you back to your old self. Hobbies that became too expensive or dangerous as you’ve gotten older may have a new appeal, and an old friend just may have some coupons and the latest in safety equipment for you leaving you with no choice but to go ahead and enjoy yourself. If you have been experiencing depression lately this transit may be enough to blow those dark clouds away. The down side is that your current relationships are bound to suffer due to all of this excitement. You may be glad to see your old daredevil buddy, but your significant other or your nervous Nelly mother will not be glad to see what they considered a “bad influence” re-entering your life. In this case “bad influence” means people and activities that take up your time and make you unavailable to those closest to you. This may mean that it’s necessary to make some cuts in your life as far as people that hinder your freedom. If you don’t look forward to coming home to someone or something, then it’s time for a change and this retrograde will set the stage.

Taurus
The new moon in your sign will make this a birthday month to remember. Many people are coming back into your life and it may be more deep than expected. You may find that memories seem to float to the surface of your consciousness bringing along the emotional and the physical sensations that come along with them. The energy from your ruling planet Venus is pushing you into those mushy corners and Mercury retrograde is bringing back more of the past than you can handle. There may be a lot of tears flowing, but the good news is they aren’t all the sad kind. The buildup in tension in your body needs to be released and tears, or sweat, are the perfect way to get rid of harmful toxins; you may find that you cry more than usual over the next few weeks; let it flow. This flow will let know which way to go. There is probably someone or something that you regret missing the first time around; now is the time to make it happen. That means that your current relationships may need to be adjusted; if it doesn’t feel right then it’s not for you. It may hurt to leave someone, but it may be deadly on the physical level to stay where you aren’t healthy and safe. Remember that what you allow in on an emotional level stays with you on the earth plane.

Gemini
Your ruling planet will not have its usual reliable energy so you will have to be extra careful in your communications. Jokes that may sound funny in your head may not be so funny to others once they leave your lips; not that you mean any harm it’s just that usual elegance with language is lacking for the next few weeks. You may find that it’s hard to articulate your thoughts and slips of the tongue, stutters, etc. can really get in the way of your true meaning. Written communication will fare a little better as you will have a chance to edit it before sending it to its intended party. There could be some concerns if you misunderstand someone else’ words that may affect your ego, especially in the workplace. Just ask them to repeat if you think that someone has dissed you in some way and you will see that you have just misinterpreted the situation. Old friends will be coming back around and there will be plenty of opportunities for travel, just make sure that your schedule and credit limit can handle it.

Cancer
During this retrograde it’s important that you keep your eye on what is really important to you.  A whirlwind of social invitations and reunion activity can put you right in the crosshairs of temptation. That old friend that always got you take that last drink that you really didn’t need, or the ex boyfriend who promised he could come back one day, well that time is now and you need to keep perspective here. What you have now is so much better than what you thought you wanted in the past, and you need to preserve it even if old feelings start churning in your gut. Keep your home base sacred ( no drama zone), check in frequently, and let your loved ones know that even though you’re having fun, they are  your first priority.  You’ll save yourself a lot of guilt if you pay attention and enjoy the social ride without losing your way. Anyone who is worth keeping will still be around after the retrograde, and those that aren’t will fall to the wayside without much effort on your part.

Leo
Missed or messages sent to the wrong recipient may be a real problem for you right now, so make sure that all of your communications go to right person.  It would be very easy to cause unnecessary drama in your love and family life with just the touch of the wrong button or pen stroke. You could write a letter to your mom and complain about your roommate, forget to send it, leave it on the kitchen table and come home to an empty house after work and no way to cover your rent next month. There are many scenarios, but the key is to stay silent about anything that is not an absolute emergency during this retrograde period it is just too easy to put your foot in your mouth. The little things that you say even in jest or out of temporary frustration, can cost you in big ways. People will be extra sensitive as communication is shaky at best for everyone right now. Save yourself a lot of grief and skip the gripe and moan sessions for now, you never know who may be listening.

Virgo
This is where you go back to that point in time where you are sure your entire destiny could be changed with just one word. It may seem almost like a dream when you get the chance to say what’s always needed to be said. This will certainly happen in an unexpected way. You may run into an ex at the airport, see that long lost friend you owe an apology to at a work conference or just get the feeling that it’s time to pick up the phone and reach out to someone from the past. This does not guarantee a change in your entire life, but it will allow you some relief from all of the baggage that you’ve been carrying around. It is also possible that letters that didn’t make their way to you, or to the one you loved, the first time around will finally make it through- this can cause a lot of problems, you may have forgot about that person but there they are in your doorway on your wedding day! Oops! Well then take that opportunity to say what you have to say so the slate will be clean for your marriage, it couldn’t hurt to let all of that old stuff just go.

Libra
Jumbled communications will be a real problem for you over the next few weeks. Text messages may be perverted by autocorrect, your cell dropping calls right before a major breakthrough, etc. Check all facts first because it will be very easy to read a situation the wrong way and make a real jealous mess! That text message between your boyfriend and your sister that reads “I’ll meet you at the hotel at 8” may not be a booty call, but a meeting to set up a surprise party for your next birthday; you get the idea. Also be mindful of your own communication, especially those concerning other peoples’ significant others; use restraint in any interaction that could be misconstrued. You may also see monies find their back to you, especially refunds for old deposits and overpayments for utilities. There may be a lot of accounts receivable on your end so check into all of your old accounts to see if you forgot about something.

Scorpio
Lost in a sea of old emotional baggage, you’re just swimming along and over there your old typewriter floats by and that book you loved so much when you were a kid. And look, there are those letters that never made their way to you. It’s great that these things are back around, but you may be very hurt when you find out that these things went missing or were sabotaged by someone close to you.  When you realize the betrayals and the players involved it will be time to make some serious changes. A group of friends may have decided that you didn’t deserve that great guy back in high school and told him that you were cheating or taken. It may not matter so much now that you’ve moved on but the sting from knowing that a secret cabal kept you from what you cherished most will hurt. The good news is revenge is not necessary, those people that did these terrible things are so miserable right now that nothing you could do to them could knock them any lower. It will be reminder, though, that you should really keep your desires private and practice more discretion when it comes to the company you keep.

Sagittarius
Over the next few weeks it may feel like you have to go back to school all over again. It may be something simple, but important enough that you have to learn step by step. A new skill or practice will make you go to the back of your brain and retrieve all of those little bits of lost or unused info floating around. This experience will help you maintain balance during this retrograde period. If you are using your mind as often as possible and adding new concepts you should fair pretty well this time around. You may be a great support for friends and family that are not faring so well under Mercury retrograde. Classmates and college roommates may ring to say hello and that will give you even more opportunities to express and listen to others pushing higher knowledge.

Capricorn
You may realize that you really don’t have the authority that you’ve been throwing around.  If you have made good decisions when telling others what to do you may find that a work promotion or community responsibility will finally make its way to you, but if you bullied others or used your power to further your own interests to the detriment of others, you may have a lot to answer for during this retrograde. Past mistakes at work may come back to haunt you; that person you pushed down the corporate ladder when you felt strong may report you to your superiors or have something nasty up their sleeve for you. If you fess up and apologize you can wiggle out of any trouble easily, but being stubborn will not work out this time. This also extends to your relationships in general, have you been naughty or nice to your friends and lovers? The good news is that you will know for sure over the next few weeks, and you will also have the chance to correct any imbalances before they become problems.

Aquarius
“Oh that’s why that happened!” For you this retrograde will be easier than the last few, there will be a lot of unexpected meetings and lightning bolt moments over the next few weeks. You will find things, and find things out, that you could never figure out before. Much of the past will start to make sense and promote a real sense of healing in your life. You will see that rejection was not the case in most of your unhappy love affairs; they were just not meant to be, at least not at that time. There will be no shortage of those types showing up and calling you now; whether you want them to or not, but the good news is that all of them will at least have some information for you that puts the puzzle pieces of your broken heart back together. This awakening can also bring you the person you were waitng for all this time. Just make all communications clear and be honest in all of your romantic dealings and enjoy this retro with an open heart and mind.

Pisces
You may feel like it just isn’t fair that someone you just can’t stand is coming around again. That one person who you were sure if they just disappeared all would be right with the world and all the attention and admiration they received would be yours. You may have been right, may be they were an obstacle to your happiness but you’ll have to do it all over again. You will have a lot of support from your friends, but remember that others have the right to live their lives as well, regardless of your feelings about them. Try to find a way to keep those old rivalries and jealous feelings under control and know that their presence is only temporary.  Try to find a way to manage your displeasure, and keep alcohol to a minimum. You will work through your feelings and end up in a healing space when it’s all over.
