March 21 – April 19
Certain areas of your life might require rethinking in order to set matters right. Although it might be tempting to rush ahead, this may not be wise as Mercury and Saturn enter their retrograde phase. You now have an opportunity to iron out any obstacles to success, though. In addition, the developing Full Moon in your relationship sector could intensify feelings, causing one or two dramas unless you and another are ready to sit down and discuss the issue.
May 21 - Jun 20
As Mars powers through your sign, you may feel quite pleased with your progress to date. However, two planets turn retrograde this week, which could delay your plans. Mercury's retrograde phase in particular could mean that you'll need to hold back regarding one idea, as further information may be required. In addition, certain events have you feeling less confident than normal, particularly concerning a business matter. Doing the groundwork first can help restore your enthusiasm!
As Mercury, your personal planet, flips backward this week for a three-week stay, you might need to go over old ground again. But would this be such a bad thing? If obstacles keep cropping up in a key area, this could be a clue that something isn't working. By revising your plans, you might be able to accomplish much more further down the line. Also this week, there could be a cause for celebration or a deeply romantic tryst.
Jun 21 - Jul 22
You could face opposition that causes your confidence to drop a little. However, with the Sun in fiery Aries, it might be time to take control by letting others know how you feel. There could be ways to compromise even if it means cutting back on your original plans. Even so, with both Mercury and Saturn turning retrograde this week, it's best not to rush into anything. Take your time to make sure all the bases are covered. It's the best way ahead.
Jul 23 - Aug 22
As Mercury turns retrograde in the topmost sector of your chart, you might need to postpone one plan and perhaps research the details further. Though you're likely eager to move ahead, it's worth making sure that you have all the information you need before making your move. And while progress could be delayed in general, there is a strong sense of purpose running through your chart and life that could encourage you to persevere no matter what.
Aug 23 – Sept 22
With two planets flipping backward, including your ruler Mercury, you could find that delays are inevitable. Is this such a bad thing? A retrograde can provide an opportunity to go over ground already covered and make sure you've done a thorough job. You may emerge from this period much better equipped to succeed with your plans. On another note, a decision around a budding relationship could reach a critical phase and make you wonder whether you should commit or not.
Sep 23 - Oct 22
It might seem as though you have to choose between your partner and family, which could bring your tactful and diplomatic side to the fore. The way you handle this could make the week much more pleasant. With both Mercury and Saturn turning retrograde this week, delays could occur regarding shared finances and communication matters. Take care when signing anything of importance. If purchasing big-ticket items, keep receipts and paperwork in case you need to return anything.
Oct 23 - Nov 21
With a strong focus on your sector of routines, this can be a good time to restore order to your life and develop the habit of being as organized as possible. With a developing Full Moon in Libra, be prepared for one or two unexpected events that could bite into your usual schedule over the weekend. Cutting back on less important activities may be the way ahead for you. The cosmos is also suggesting you explore ways to get your finances in order.
Nov 22 - Dec 21
You could be going over old ground again as Saturn turns retrograde on Wednesday. As this phase will last some months, progress could be delayed. However, doing the necessary work now and creating a sound structure for further development can assure future success. Mercury also turns retrograde this week, so remember to back up important documents on your computer and be careful when closing key deals. The developing Full Moon over the weekend can be great for partying!
Dec 22 - Jan 19
You could be pitted against family members regarding a key decision this week, but this might be part of a bigger issue that may come into the spotlight as the week goes on. The way to handle this may be to put yourself in the other person's shoes. Doing so should encourage discussion and help you reach a compromise. Your ruler Saturn turns retrograde on Wednesday, which could see you stepping up any opportunities for self-improvement.
Jan 20 - Feb 18
As Venus is retrograde in your sector of personal finances, you might become more aware of how you're investing your money and how you might save more in the future. And with Mercury turning retrograde this week, it might be wise to avoid purchasing any big-ticket items, at least for the coming three weeks. Enjoy a few small luxuries instead. Finally, you could feel put upon by the demands of a certain person. If so, all you have to do is say no.
Feb 19 - Mar 20
Saturn turns retrograde in the topmost sector of your chart, so you might have to reconsider a plan or go over the details of a deal, and you could be busy with this all month. But view this as a chance to affirm that you're on the right track. With a Full Moon building over the weekend, you could be encouraged to shop. If you do, be sure to keep receipts and paperwork in case you need to return something.
