March 21 – April 19 

Mercury turns retrograde in your sector of personal finances on Thursday, so be particularly mindful when purchasing anything online or anything expensive. Keep receipts and other important details just in case. Venus enters Taurus on Friday, making your money zone an area of interest. Although you might be tempted to splurge, it would be better to opt for small luxuries rather than one big blowout. Try to invest more of your cash rather than spend it. 



May 21 - Jun 20 

Personal projects and plans could be delayed as the planet of talk and thought turns retrograde on Thursday. But you only need to worry about this if you're about to commit to a major project or plan. The small stuff will take care of itself. If possible, hold off signing important documents until after May 22. If you can't, go ahead, but know that changes to your original plans are likely. On the upside, Venus encourages you to indulge and have fun 



May 21 - Jun 20 

As your personal planet Mercury enters its retrograde phase in your spiritual sector, you can use this opportunity to connect with yourself more deeply. This phase can be particularly useful for keeping a dream diary. The more acquainted you become with the messages from your subconscious mind, the better you'll be able to understand the guidance they offer. When Venus moves into this same sector, the chance to volunteer your time to help others could be very rewarding. 



 Jun 21 - Jul 22 

A reunion may be in the cards this week or in the next three weeks. Mercury retrograde in your social sector suggests that old friends may be in touch or an ex or old flame may come back into your life. This can be an opportunity to talk over old times or seek healing regarding a difficult breakup. You might find that you get on much better this time. And with Venus entering Taurus on Friday, a past romance could be rekindled.



Jul 23 - Aug 22 

Just as you're hitting your stride regarding a career move, Mercury turns retrograde in your professional sector. This doesn't mean you should drop everything and wait until it turns direct again. Do what you have to, but bear in mind that your original plans could change in the weeks ahead. You'll easily navigate this phase if you can go with the flow. You'll also be able to mount a charm offensive and impress superiors, so use this to your advantage. 



Aug 23 - Sep 22 

As Mercury begins its backward dance on Thursday, you may particularly notice its influence if you're traveling or on vacation. It would be helpful to have a checklist ready before you set off and make sure you've packed everything you need. Despite your preparations, be ready for a few unexpected detours along the way. As Venus sashays into Taurus on Friday, you'll be likelier to encounter romance when you move outside your comfort zone.



Sep 23 - Oct 22 

You'll need to take extra care when closing deals, discussing important issues, handling business affairs, or dealing with shared resources during this time. As Mercury enters its retrograde phase, you'll be ideally placed to tackle debt issues and improve your financial standing as much as you can. This isn't the best time to take out a loan or incur debt, particularly if it serves no real purpose. That said, investing in quality art could bring a good return in the future. 



Oct 23 - Nov 21 

Relationships seem to be a major focus for you at this time. However, you also need to take extra care when interacting with others as Mercury turns retrograde on Thursday. This can be an opportunity to connect with old friends and enjoy a reunion, but there's also the potential for misunderstandings. Just be aware of this as you go about your daily business. With Venus also dancing into Taurus, your social life could be particularly exciting, with romance looking very promising.



Nov 22 - Dec 21 

Although you may be eager to lose weight and get as toned and fit as possible, this may not easy in practice. The temptation to indulge could interfere with your plans. But you may be able to overcome such hurdles if you enlist the services of a personal trainer or coach. Still, the urge to overeat could be almost impossible to resist once Venus dances into Taurus later in the week. You might have to give in and enjoy yourself



Dec 22 - Jan 19 

Mercury enters its retrograde phase in your leisure sector, so you could be tempted to take up a hobby or pastime that you enjoyed as a child. Rather than bring on a feeling of nostalgia, it could have real relevance to the person you are today. You may find that it ignites your sense of joy and creativity. Venus glides into this same sector, so it's time to indulge your senses. Whatever it takes to have fun, just do it!



Jan 20 - Feb 18 

Friends and family you haven't seen in a while may turn up on your doorstep as Mercury enters its retrograde phase in your home and family sector. However, as Venus dances in later in the week, you'll very much enjoy the chance to entertain guests. At the same time, this is a good opportunity to kick back and nurture yourself. You've been exceptionally busy lately and your body and brain need this time to relax and recharge.



Feb 19 - Mar 20 

If you're inspired to study, write, teach, or network with like-minded others, you're very much in tune with the present planetary picture. No matter what your interests, this is the time to go for it. However, it's important not to have too many expectations as Mercury turns retrograde. If you find that an activity isn't for you, drop it and try something else. Romance could play a big part in your life in the weeks ahead, so enjoy it!
