After 4:30 a.m., there are no restrictions to shopping or important decisions. The moon is in Pisces.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Because Mercury retrograde is creating transportation delays, give yourself extra time for travel or attending appointments. Be proactive about car repairs or anything that looks like it might cause you trouble. Be patient with goofy errors and mixed-up communications.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You are in the throes of Mercury retrograde, which is why checks in the mail are late along with other payments. Many financial issues will be stalled in the water. However, you might find something you lost. (Yay!) This is also an excellent time to finish old business.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Mercury is your ruler and this particular Mercury retrograde is taking place in Gemini! “Lions and tigers and bears, oh my!” This is why you will encounter ex-partners and friends from the past. It’s also why you might miss appointments, misplace items and suffer from confused communications. Courage!
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Generally, Mercury retrograde creates delays, confusion and errors. However, each Mercury retrograde is different because it occurs in a different sign. This particular Mercury retrograde will help you do research and study the past. Bonus!
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Mercury retrograde will put you in touch with friends from the past. You might also hear from members of groups, clubs and organizations from the distant past. This could cause some of you to rethink some goals that you previously made.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Because Mercury retrograde is taking place at the top of your chart, you will likely hear from bosses, parents and people in authority you have not been in touch with for a while. This could be a good thing — or not. This is also your chance to pitch an old idea to a boss.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
You can use this current Mercury retrograde to finish important papers or manuscripts, plus study history or do research into the past. You might also be in touch with people in other countries or from other cultures whom you have not seen for a while. It’s an interesting time and potentially productive.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Although the current Mercury retrograde will create errors and delays for you, it will also help you to wrap up old business related to shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and anything that you own jointly with others. If you want to finish something, this will be easy to do.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
This current Mercury retrograde is opposite your sign, which is almost a guarantee that you will be thinking about, dreaming about or encountering ex-partners and old friends from your past. Somehow, these people are back in your world or your mind stream.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Your efficiency will suffer with this current Mercury retrograde, which will last until June 22. Please note: The shadow period will last until July 8; so, if you are buying ground transportation, computers or cellphones, it will be smart to wait until after July 8.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Many of you are encountering old flames or talking about them, dreaming about them or remembering them. (It’s curious how some old flames are forgettable and some so memorable.) This Mercury retrograde will help you to deal with old issues related to your kids.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
This particular Mercury retrograde will attract relatives to your doorstep. (Stock the fridge.) However, it will also give you a wonderful chance to tackle home repairs you’ve been avoiding as well as sit down for family discussions to address certain issues, possibly about a parent.
If Your Birthday Is Today
