MOON ALERT: We have the all-clear to do business (whether $10 or $10 million) and make important decisions until 10:40 p.m. The moon is in Taurus.
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Retrograde Mercury will bring people from the past back into your life now, especially friends or contacts from clubs, groups and organizations. These conversations might prompt you to rethink your future goals. This is a good thing.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Whether you are prepared or not, you will have contact again with parents, bosses and authority figures from your past you haven't seen for a while. This could be upsetting or rewarding, depending on the relationship. It might be a chance to show others what you have accomplished.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
Travel plans will be delayed or suffer from changes in the next few weeks. Just accept this with a smile. After all, happiness is being able to enjoy the scenery on a detour, right? On the upside, this is an excellent time to finish a book, a school paper or your dreaded thesis.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
Mercury retrograde can be a pain, but it's also an opportunity to finish old business. You can use this Mercury retrograde (in the next few weeks) to wrap up details related to inheritances, taxes, debt and anything you own jointly with others. Just do it!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
The next few weeks will bring old friends and ex-partners back into your life. This could be a good thing, or not. Perhaps it's a chance for you to bring about closure or put your cards on the table and settle old questions.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Your efficiency at work will suffer in the next few weeks because of Mercury retrograde. Delays, misplaced or lost papers, wrong messages, plus staff shortages and confused communications, will drive you crazy, but it's minor stuff. No biggie. (Mostly.)
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Old flames might be back in your life again. To be on the safe side, make sure you look great every time you go out. After all, living well is the best revenge, right? The next few weeks are excellent for finishing artistic, creative projects.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Relatives you haven't seen for a while might camp on your doorstep in the next few weeks. Family issues from the past are bound to surface again because of Mercury retrograde.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Transportation delays, missed trains and buses, flat tires and engine problems are par for the course for the next month because of Mercury retrograde. Therefore, allow extra time for whatever you're doing because these snafus could happen. Bummer.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Mercury retrograde is a sure sign issues related to business and finance might slow down now. Cheques you are expecting might be late in the mail. If you are looking for work, go back to someplace you applied before or even worked before.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Mercury retrograde begins in Pisces but soon falls back into Aquarius, which means you will feel frustrated because of misplaced items, lost keys, confused communications and lots of silly errors. It's just goofy little things but they can be annoying. Oh well. Good news: You might find what was lost.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
The next few weeks are the perfect time to research the past to find answers. You will be successful. Likewise, the study of history or anything you worked on before will go extremely well.
