MOON ALERT Until 10:15 p.m. we have the all clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions. The moon is in Libra.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Let us not forget that Mercury is retrograde, which is why relatives from the past and old family issues are back on your plate. Family reunions and cousins camped on your couch are par for the course. Good time for house repairs.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Retrograde Mercury continues to play havoc with your efficiency on a daily basis, causing transportation delays, breakdowns, lost paperwork and confused communications. Nevertheless, contact with old friends might yield fascinating gossip.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Cheques in the mail are late or your salary is on hold. Financial delays can be frustrating. However, this is a good time to finish up old work and, if you are looking for work, by all means apply to places where you have worked or applied before. Go back over your trap line.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Mercury is still retrograde in your sign -- dontcha love it? This is why ex-partners and old friends are back in your life again. This could be pleasant -- or not. It's an opportunity for closure. Meanwhile, misplaced items and cancelled appointments boggle the mind.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
For most, Mercury retrograde is an annoyance and a hassle. It's not major stuff, it's silly little mistakes. However, your sign can make excellent headway now in any kind of research or going back to seek answers and find solutions to old problems. Retrograde Mercury will actually help you do this.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It might be interesting running into old friends and acquaintances (or horrific). It all depends on what went down. Contact with old acquaintances could lead to work and interaction with groups. You might have a chance to set something straight with a group from your past.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs from the past might cross your path again. That's because Mercury retrograde is creating d©j vu moments with authority figures for you. This could be a good break or an opportunity to re-establish the reputation you would like to have.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Confused schedules with school, publishing and the media, plus cancelled or delayed trips, have been frustrating. However, this same astrological influence can put you in touch with people once again who can help you. You can also explore history and the background of anything.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Mercury retrograde can help you clean up old business with inheritances, taxes, debt, insurance matters and shared property. Just do it. Your efforts might be plagued with a few minor errors and miscommunications -- but you will get it done.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Ex-partners are back in your life. This might or might not be a welcome thing. Nevertheless, it might be an opportunity to clarify old issues with friends and important past relationships. You might learn something valuable. Or get money.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Your efficiency at work is down because of cancelled appointments, staff shortages, mixed-up communications, lost paperwork, delayed packages and transportation breakdowns. Even broken equipment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
Sometimes it's exciting running into old flames, although generally it isn't. (Especially if you've gained a lot of weight.) I hate that part. Nevertheless, Mercury retrograde also gives you an opportunity to wrap up loose details about kids, vacations and creative projects.
