     I hate to bring the bad news but Mercury is retrograde for the next  three weeks. When any planet goes retrograde it appears to be  moving backward. This movement will affect each zodiac sign  differently. 

    Aries: March 21-April 19. Don’t let people burst your bubble but you  may notice people not being on time, canceling appointments, and  not getting a job done that was promised. You can always blame it  on Mercury when something goes wrong. And the good news is that  you can do this for three weeks.  

    Taurus: April 20-May 20. Trying to get things moving is a challenge  this next week. Late is the keyword for you Taurus people. Waiting  for a business associate to call may be fruitless. Take care not to  make too many appointments this month and tend to some old  business. 

    Gemini: May 21-June 20. Find yourself losing things. Try to remember where you put everything in the next couple of weeks. You can blame all problems on Mercury or the Pandemic—regardless you will still feel annoyed. 


    Cancer: June 21-July 22. Not a good time to start a new project as  Mercury is out there doing its job. Take some time to smell the roses  and perhaps buy some for your love. You may find you are  overcharged for something this week.  

    Leo: July 23-August22. Thankful Venus is in a loving mood on your  chart. A new romance or a spark or two from your current love is on  the agenda. Don’t fall prey to promises about any business deals as  you may be disappointed. This is not the best time for you to sign any  contracts, and if you decide to— make sure you read the fine print.

    Virgo: August 23-September 22. Hopefully, your work will not create  some challenges for you during the retrograde. If you are working at  home fix up your home office. Check your computer to make sure all  is well. Virgo people are ruled by Mercury so you often feel the brunt  of this transiting planet. 

    Libra: September 23-October 22. As a true Libra, you often have a  challenge making decisions. Think twice or more times before  making any life-changing decisions during the next three weeks. This  is actually a social time for you so call an old friend for lunch. 

    Scorpio: October 23-November 21. Avoid arguments as much as  possible especially with your partner-both love and business. Mars is  still lingering in your 7th house of partnership. And Mercury  retrograde can be stirring up some activity at home. 

    Sagittarius: November 22-December 21. This week is about money.  Try to keep spending at bay. Buy your groceries and necessities but  wait for any major purchases. If you do have some extra dollars do a  little research on investments. 

    Capricorn: December 22-January 19. It is difficult to plan trips during  this fragile time in history, but you can start the daydreaming process.  Call a close relative—a sister, brother, or even a friend you call family.  You may hear from an old friend this week. 

    Aquarius: January 20-February 18. There is a lot of activity in your life with the sun and Mercury in Aquarius. You can take advantage of  your birthday month but be cautious with Mercury being retrograde.  Actually, just some changing plans, lost keys and forgetting to close  the refrigerator door. 

    Pisces: February 19-March 20. This is a good week to do something  special for someone who really needs your help. If a friend calls you 

    up wanting to chat be there for him or her. And offer to help any way  that you are able. 

    If you were born on the “cusp” of any sign check with me and I will tell you what is your real zodiac sign.
