Mercury returns to direct motion on May 11, setting the stage for a productive second half of the month.
Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)…You could be feeling frustrated by the slow pace of progress this month, as Mercury continues to retrograde in your sign. Instead of bulling your way forward, why not go with the flow? The Universe is trying to help you let go of a major personality pattern (an egoic “need”) that keeps you from the love and success you want.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)…Just because life isn’t moving in a straightforward fashion doesn’t mean you aren’t flowing swiftly downstream toward your intended destination. Don’t fight the current this month! Surprising relationship and career opportunities are on the menu from the 15th to the 30th. But you’ve got to trust your path and stay open!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)…To say this is a pivotal year would be a strong understatement. A huge part of what you’re learning is how to feel your feelings thoroughly the first time – this allows you to return to equilibrium (that powerful place of inner balance) more quickly. Find your calm, inner center and cultivate trust this month; all of this rocking and rolling will pay dividends later in the year.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)…You’re essentially re-visioning your career, life’s work or status goals with Mercury doing his dance at the top of your chart. Remember that what you usually want when you say you want money is the freedom or resources that money can buy. Be willing to shift your focus to what you really want, rather than the steps you think you need to take to get there.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)…Mercury in your 9th House of wisdom is slipping you intuitive shards of self-understanding all month long. You’re not the same person you were 10 or 20 years ago, but you often still act as if you were. Pay attention to the messages you get in dreams, conversations, books and movies – it’s time to act your age and do the work you came here to do!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)…Friends and professional connections continue to sparkle for you this month. You’re entering a powerful career period in which others are especially receptive to your projects, proposals and creative output. Use the first half of the month to tighten up power – or money-sharing agreements that discourage your creativity.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)…You’re rewriting your personal Book of Love this month. Since you now realize that everyone you attract into your life is a reflection of your inner self, you choose to become conscious of the Shadow patterns that have attracted past unhealthy relationships. Your career mojo continues to burn hotter and hotter, so go for what you really want.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)…Taking better care of your health or getting more organized with your work opens up relationship opportunities. If you’re forging a new business partnership, leave room to renegotiate mutually-favorable terms after Mercury goes direct mid-month. The Full Moon on the 27th puts you in the spotlight and serves as a reminder of how far you’ve come.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)…The incredible pressure you’ve been under starts to ease off this month. This is a temporary break in a very intense year for you, so if things slow down, take advantage now. With Mercury retrograde in your 5th House, you may want to reconnect with an old hobby or art form that can get you out of your head and back in the flow. Relationship luck improves after the 19th.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)…There’s a part of you that just won’t let go in a relationship matter. You keep pushing even when you don’t know why. What you’re feeling is the once-in-a-generation, super-extended transit of warrior planet Mars through your relationship house. Even though this level of confrontation can be embarrassing for you, use it to learn about the things you secretly hate yourself for. Healing these old wounds will make it all worth it in the long run.
Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)…You’ll be reviewing your communication style and strategies in the first half of the month. Retrograde Mercury in your 3rd House of thoughts shows you the places of past disappointment where you’ve gotten mentally and emotionally stuck. Clearing these old hurts opens you to new career abundance near the Full Moon in your 10th House on May 27.
Aries (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)…Your creativity is off the charts! You can blow out this fiery energy in partying hard or you could use it to bring your own inner Bach or Da Vinci to the forefront. Use the Mercury retro to review your finances; then open your heart and get your love flowing to bring in the money you need for the next step in your journey.
