While everybody is influenced by the retrograde Mercury, the fact it’s in Aries and resumes forward motion on your birthday suggests you’ll be able to pinpoint, discuss, and deal with numerous issues. Some will be recent but others will go back a long way. A few will date back so far you won’t even recall how they began, but you will realise that in tackling them, you’ll be ridding yourself of persistent problems and clearing the way for a less complicated future.

Aries March 20 – April 19

Obviously, everybody will be relieved that Mercury is no longer retrograde. However, it will take a while for the confusion characteristic of this cycle to die down. This is especially the case for you, because with Mercury still positioned in Aries, any remaining errors that arise will be amazingly illuminating.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

Judging by the powerful links being formed by your ruler Venus and both the fortunate Jupiter and the planetary powerhouse, Pluto, exciting ideas, offers or changes are coming your way. And explore absolutely everything. There will be some surprises, and what seems least likely could prove best in the long run.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

It’s not that you mind others making decisions in situations that involved you. Actually, often it’s a relief. However, you prefer to take part in discussions, mostly because others lack your knack for keeping everybody updated. While, at the moment, this is tricky, you’ll soon find a way around those problems.

Cancer June 21 – July 21

Only days ago, you were quite sure that certain arrangements were reliable and, equally, certain individuals were trustworthy. While things might go as anticipated, with Mercury’s retrograde cycle just coming to an end, surprises are inevitable. The more aware you are of the possibility, the less of a surprise it will be.

Leo July 22 – August 22

In their enthusiasm to tell you about certain new ideas or offers they think you’d like, one particular individual could be overenthusiastic. They may even seem to be bullying you. Despite that, what they have in mind would be in your best interests. But you won’t know that until you do a little exploration.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Don’t be surprised if those around you can’t seem to make up their minds, even about the simplest of matters. While you could blame this on the fact your ruler Mercury’s retrograde cycle, is just coming to an end, the powerful planetary activity over the next four weeks will also have something to do with it.

Libra September 23 – October 22

On Wednesday, the Sun meets the planet of innovation, Uranus. While this alone would indicate excitement if not breakthroughs, in a month’s time Uranus itself is moving into a new position and to accent joint ventures. Knowing that, ensure whatever plans you make now are flexible enough to ride out those changes.

Scorpio October 23 – November 21

In some situations, fast action is vital. But in at least one, you’re urged to wait until you have the clarity, in terms of both hard facts and your own feelings, that comes with the Scorpio Full Moon, at the end of the month. Until then, explore your options but avoid lasting decisions.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 20

It’s the rare Sagittarius who blames others for problems or when things go wrong, even if one particular individual is at fault. But not everybody is as easygoing, as you’re about to discover. Should anyone even suggest you’re behind problems they created, correct the facts swiftly and in unarguable detail.

Capricorn December 21 – January 19

Unsettling as sudden changes may be, what’s coming your way now and next week isn’t just exciting, those events could be the answer to persistent problems. However, they won’t seem that promising when they arise. That being the case, make a point of exploring absolutely everything. You’ll be surprised, and amazed, what works out.

Aquarius January 20 – February 17

The coming week’s events will be exciting but, also, the odds are good they’ll trigger the stubborn side of your nature. Bear this in mind and when you’re becoming exasperated, instead of digging your heels in, you’ll ask others to explain what they have in mind. That will change everything, possibly within minutes.

Pisces February 18 – March 19

The last thing you want to do is disappoint anybody. Yet sudden changes in circumstances mean you can’t do what you’ve promised and, also, deal with certain more recent obligations. Explain that to those you’re worried about upsetting. Not only will they understand, they’ll do what they can to help.
