Tip for the week: Delays, breakdown in communication and mix-ups are all par for the course this week. It’s not you. It’s Mercury in Retro!

As things continue this week to be somewhat out of kilter, take a step back and reflect.
Trust your intuition and be prepared for some amazing coincidences. A major disappointment from last month continues to weigh heavily on you but once you come to terms with the fact that it wasn’t supposed to be you will realize that something far better and more suited to your needs is on the way. Time spent with your partner and/or mate will bring you both closer together this week.
HINT: Treat yourself to something outrageous…you’ve earned it!
Coming to terms with a decision you made a few months ago is both exciting and nerve-wracking as you realize the depth of your commitment.
Don’t worry. When the time comes you will have the necessary funds and will be ready to make your move. Faith not fear. Your thoughts return to the past as you review both your failures and your successes. Take some time off to visit with another water sign. Together you make a formidable team as the level of trust between you is high and the friendship has withstood the test of time.
HINT: Take advantage of a sudden spurt of energy this week.
Although you still have a lot of work and plans for the coming weeks leave you little free time, you need to take a step back in order to relax and recharge your batteries.
If not, your health may suffer and then you will be forced to rest.
You hate not being in control but this week you may have to take a back seat to another colleague. Use this time to observe and gather important information which will be valuable to you in the coming months.
HINT: A conversation with an air sign may leave you with more questions than answers.
Meetings and social functions will take up more time than you wish to spend, but unfortunately, you have no alternative but to attend.
Use this time to solidify professional connections as well as personal relationships.
In the weeks to come you will feel less pressured at work and that will provide you with the window of time you need in order to take care of some personal business.
Financially you continue to watch your spending and even manage to put a little aside every month.
HINT: Time spent with a family member will be much more pleasant than you had anticipated.
This is definitely not the time for you to rely on others but rather to take control of the situation yourself. Money or funding you were expecting may be delayed but will arrive at a later date. You may have to make some adjustments in your plans, but all will be well if you are cautious today. Before committing to anything new, read the fine print and try to avoid signing any important documents until you have an expert examine them.
HINT: Tuesday and Wednesday are good days for working on a project which demands a high level of concentration.
You continue to absorb all the tension and emotions of those closest to you and although you care and would like to help, this week you need to brush yourself off and walk away. You will always care but the responsibility is not yours and it is not your job to do more than that.
Time spent with a fire sign will help you to see things from a different perspective so don’t hesitate to accept an invitation from this person. People living far away are on your mind and the time is right to renew contact.
HINT: Although it has been difficult for you to put some money aside lately, the bills you are paying cannot be delayed.
You have so much energy and people are even more attracted to you now than before. Be wary of someone who smiles a great deal, is full of compliments but avoids eye contact. The less said right now the better, but in the weeks to come you will make your voice heard. Over the past few weeks it has been difficult to find the quiet emotional space you need in order to create and work on a project which is close to your heart. In the weeks to come the fog will lift and that is when you will be able to forge ahead.
HINT: Communication may be difficult this week with your partner and/or mate.
You may find it difficult staying home this week as a bout of extra energy propels you to be busy and active.
While at home this is the perfect time for you to tackle some of those closets and cupboards you have been eyeing and waiting for the right time to get rid of things you really don’t need. However, take the time to examine important papers and documents. Better to keep more than you need than to have to replace them later.
HINT: A conversation with a water sign will force you to examine some of your motives and although you might feel a bit uncomfortable the soul searching will do you good.
Great week for socializing. You have been overworked for so long and haven’t had the time necessary to really put any effort into making new contacts professionally or building up those you already have. The time has come. A conversation with your partner and/or mate will reaffirm just why you are such a vibrant couple.
Together you find peace, comfort and intellectual stimulus which is the envy of your friends. But nothing comes easy and you both have worked hard at this relationship.
HINT: Take careful notes and be prepared to answer some interesting questions.
Your intuition is high and this is the time to take a good hard look at where you are today and where you wish to be six months from now. You may not have all the answers you are looking for but you are definitely moving in the right direction. Not everyone you have been associating with will make the journey with you but those who do will not be sorry. The middle portion of this week is a perfect time for enjoying the company of a Taurus you know.
HINT: Money is always on your mind, but rest assured you are doing the very best you can.
The time has come for you to consider getting some help both at work and at home. There are not enough hours in the day for you to accomplish all that you have set out to do by yourself. For those of you driving long distances to work, consider hiring a driver. Not only will you be safer and more rested, but instead of concentrating on the road you can get some work done in the quiet of your vehicle.
HINT: Financially you continue to pay close attention to your bank balance and soon a new source of cash will be coming your way. Think carefully before taking on a partner.
Despite the glitches you have been dealing with over the past few weeks, things are actually beginning to fall into place. There are still a few items which need to be dealt with, but here too finding the solution will be easier than you had imagined.
Together with your partner and/or mate you make it look easy and everyone is attracted by your expertise, your sense of fair play and most of all your sense of humor.
HINT: Pay attention to your financial situation as there are quite a few expenses on the way. Nothing you hadn’t thought of, but still this is not the time for letting go of the purse strings.
TIP FOR THE WEEK: Delays, breakdown in communication and mix-ups are all par for the course this week. It’s not you. It’s Mercury in Retro!
