With five planets transiting through your freedom zone, restless Rams are born to be wild as you kick up your heels/hooves. You’ve also got a lot of extra responsibilities, as friends or group members look to you for leadership and inspiration. With Mercury in retrograde mode (until February 21) pursuing your goals and dreams won’t be a direct journey. There will be plenty of frustrating twists and turns along the way! So plenty of patience is required over the next three weeks.
Retrograde Mercury is activating your career zone, so be very clear when you’re communicating with bosses, colleagues, clients and/or customers. What you say and what they hear may be two different things. Keep them up to date with what you are doing, otherwise misunderstandings are likely. If you’re applying for a job, make sure you do all the research required before your interview. Winging it is not recommended … this week the devil is definitely in the detail.
Mercury (your power planet) is currently in retrograde mode. So – over the next three weeks – you need to back-up all your computer files; allow plenty of time to get to appointments and catch flights; check and then double-check everything; and be incredibly adaptable. Plus maintain a sense of humor! Mercury retrograde is a suitable time to do just about anything with an RE in front of it – revise, rehearse, reboot, research, revisit, retract, refund, rethink, reschedule and re-do.
Secrets, mysteries and misinformation abound this week Crabs, as Mercury reverses through your trust zone. So avoid fake news and be very careful about who you place your trust in. You’re also keen to show loved ones how much you really care. Avoid being too overprotective though. All relationships need room to breathe and there’s a big difference between loving and smothering. Be inspired by birthday great, writer Charles Dickens “A loving heart is the truest wisdom.”
Expect some communication chaos over the coming week, as Mercury reverses through your relationship zone (until February 21). It’s a time when unresolved issues may be dredged up all over again. On the weekend, a platonic relationship or a professional partnership could veer off in an unpredictable direction. When it comes to your career, don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater! Try to get the balance right between keeping what works and exploring exciting new options.
With five planets highlighting your health and wellbeing zone, strive to be the fittest and most vibrant Virgo you can be. No lame excuses or empty promises. Get your body moving ASAP! Reinvention is the name of the game, as retrograde Mercury urges you to reboot your daily routine with discipline and determination. The best way to handle stress levels is with relaxing indoor pursuits (like meditation or yoga) and vigorous outdoor activities (like running, cycling or hiking).
Over the next three weeks, retrograde Mercury shakes up and reboots your peer group zone. So you could bump into an old friend or a lover from the past could boomerang back into your world! Whatever happens, do your best to surround yourself with authentic friends who help you in hard times, encourage your talents and support your dreams. As birthday great Bob Marley reminds us “True friends are like stars; you can only recognise them when it’s dark around you.”
With communication planet Mercury now in retrograde mode (until February 21) do your best to keep the conversation flowing with relatives, friends and colleagues. Venus also shifts into your domestic zone (from Tuesday until February 25). So it’s the perfect time to patch up a rocky relationship with a frazzled family member, as you hold out the olive branch of peace. As music legend (and birthday great) Bob Marley sang, “Overcome the devils with a thing called love.”
When it comes to a relative, neighbour or colleague, hold onto your seat and prepare for a rollercoaster ride. The planets inspire you to contribute your talents to a worthy cause within your local community. Then satisfying connections and positive friendships will follow. But with Mercury reversing through your social networking zone (for the next three weeks) double-check all online comments before you post. It will be very easy to send the wrong message to the wrong person!
Mercury (planet of communication and commerce) is reversing through your money zone. So avoid signing contracts and buying big ticket items (like a computer, car or home) until after February 21. In the meantime, look for creative ways to recycle resources and boost cash flow. Plus be extra careful how you pass on information. If you make assumptions or give vague instructions, then you’ll be misunderstood. Patience, clarity and confidence will really take you places.
With Mercury now reversing through your sign (until February 21) you’re apt to make some hasty half-baked decisions this week Aquarius. Don’t worry too much if you make a messy mistake though. Irish writer (and birthday great) James Joyce reminds us “Mistakes are the portals of discovery” as we live and learn through the choices that we make. On the weekend, you may struggle to break free from the constraints of a restrictive relationship with a partner, friend or work colleague.
Things won’t go according to plan as Mercury is in retrograde mode over the next three weeks. Try to be extra observant and patient, as you look for crucial information that is hidden beneath the surface. Then you’ll understand current complexities better, and the path ahead will be much clearer. Solitude is soul food for you at the moment. So perceptive Pisceans will put aside some special ‘me time’ as you meditate, contemplate, ruminate, slow down, calm down and re-calibrate.
