When Mercury goes retrograde on the 27th, 60 per cent of the planets will be travelling backwards – the maximum for the year. Things seem to be going backwards in the world and perhaps in your life (though your finances are not affected). These retrogrades are generally not life threatening, just annoying and frustrating. If you understand what’s going on you become more philosophical about it. It is easier to handle. The timing of this is very good, however. Your 5th house of fun, children and creativity is very strong. The world of fun and leisure calls to you – and you may as well indulge as you won’t be missing anything in the world. With some creativity you can make this period fun.
Health still needs watching until the 22nd but after that date there will be a dramatic improvement. In the meantime, enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Love is better than last month, but your love planet is still retrograde. So go slow in love. Let relationships develop as they will. There’s no need to make important love decisions. Time will reveal what needs to be done.
This is still a month for making psychological progress – last month was too. Whether you’re involved in formal types of therapy or not, there will be psychological breakthroughs. The new Moon of the 6th will further clarify emotional and family issues. Information will come to you – as the month progresses – that will answer all your questions.
Finance doesn’t seem an issue this month. Your money house is empty, and only the Moon moves through there, on the 1st, 2nd, 29th and 30th. Because the Moon will move through the money house twice this month, earnings should be better than last month. Financial energy and enthusiasm are stronger from the 6th to the 20th as the Moon waxes. Money and financial opportunity can come in many ways and through many people.
Be more patient with elders, bosses, parents and parent figures on the 1st and 2nd. Children and children figures in your life have a good social period on the 5th and 6th. The 19th and 20th is a good romantic period – but the love planet is retrograde, remember, so there could be a delayed reaction.
