Mercury may be in rewind, and with all its attendant potential glitches and delays, but it is still forging a fine angle to Jupiter, one which goes on until this Friday. This is an aspect which can create optimism especially around legalities, higher education and contracts.
Now, these are often areas which come under the astral microscope with Mercury's retrograde, and sure enough the usual industrial disputes affecting railways, airlines, ships and docks may still unfold. But we must always remember that Mercury retrograde gives us an opportunity to solve and resolve, as much as it can cause hassles too.
Aries 21 March - 20 April
With Mercury now retrograde, have you noticed any changes around communications? I say this because with the Moon in bubbly Gemini today, and with the Sun arriving in this sign tomorrow, the pace of life may actually accelerate quite a lot for you. This can be exciting and see lots of possibilities, but do watch details.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
You may find yourself doing some kind of mental audit. This may involve thinking about what's really important to you, and you could find yourself comparing your situation to that of others. Whilst this is understandable, equally don't underestimate your talents and qualities - which you could be inclined to do.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
This can be a mixed day for you, with heightened sensitivity, increased interaction with others and plenty of stops and starts. The most encouraging thing is that the Sun is on the cusp of revisiting your sign for the first time in eleven months. Hopefully, you will experience an increasing physical dynamism and energy.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
With Venus in Cancer supercharged, all sorts of relationships can seem much more intense. And the clustering of energies developing in Gemini, suggests some subconscious fears and anxieties can start to surface. If anything feels unspoken in a relationship, it may be best to try and bring it to the surface and deal with it.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
The next few weeks offer rich possibilities to expand your network of friends and associates. However, this will only happen with sustained effort and real care around communications. If you're someone who is especially comfortable in a group dynamic, this can be a really positive phase for you - especially today.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
Some mixed signals are possible on the professional front, and yet someone can be reassuringly supportive, even if they're happy to be in the background and not seek any personal recognition. On the other hand, you might be reading the words of someone inspirational, ones that could help to drive you on in your efforts.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
The most routine parts of your existence may have seemed somewhat more stale and predictable ever since Mars burst into Gemini, on the 12th of May. If you have found yourself more restless since then, this is likely to become even more of an issue. If you feel frustrated, look to your own blockages and inner issues.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Your perceptions are enhanced, and this could see you picking up on someone's attitude which others may be oblivious to. However, before you speak your mind, should you feel the need to do so, do be conscious of why this person's patterns are impacting on you so strongly. A flirty moment is also possible today.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
Discussions and negotiations can take place at this time, and there just seems to be more emphasis on how you connect in fitting in with others. One person's scheme or idea can seem particularly appealing. Yet before you make any binding decisions, especially if money is involved, do really check over the finer details.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
A relationship issue seems to be holding sway at the moment and it could be a distraction from the everyday matters that you need to grapple with. Try not to get too drawn away from what you have to do. If you find it hard to concentrate and get on, there could be consequences that run on from this for you, Capricorn.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
Whilst part of you has been drawn towards more outgoing and creative possibilities, another side of you has been trying to process a more psychological situation around a close friendship or relationship. If the balance of power in one tie is out of kilter, it may be something you really have to deal with in order to liberate yourself.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
Are there more politics around one friendship or group of people that you've been keen to admit, or is it that someone you know on a platonic basis holds more of an attraction for you than you previously realised? Either of these scenarios is possible and may require some careful thought. Weigh up the pros and cons.
