The planet of communication and roadways, Mercury, goes retrograde on May 18th until June 11th. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. If you can, hold off on buying (or leasing) any big ticket items. It’s also a good idea to triple check any and all plans you make. This is an excellent time for introspection and research, as those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period. Wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions or big purchases.
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) How you interpret the meaning of the current events in your life is very important now. Your perspective is important– are you able to assess them objectively or are you taking them personally? Yes, there are disappointments and set-backs, but there are reasons for them. The purpose of all of the delays is 2-fold, (1) to strengthen your faith and patience, and (2) to create a solid, long lasting and supportive foundation for you and your future endeavors. Trust that the Universe is working on your behalf.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) You are at the threshold of a time of great opportunity. The key to reaping positive results– have the courage to ask for what you want and the self-confidence to put your hand out for it. If you rely on others to determine what’s right for you, you’ll be disappointed bigtime.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Your ruling planet, Mercury, will be going retrograde again on May 18th until June 11th. Set your sights on what you want, notice who and what attempts to get in your way, as well as who and what offers help and keep putting one foot in front of the other. This Mercury retrograde period provides you with the opportunities to clearly see where you stand and how to manifest what you want.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Avoid the lure of those familiar old, negative emotions from the past that cause you to project unnecessary ‘dramas’ onto your present-day life. Accept that the worst is over and allow the dust to settle. You’ll see that things are finally taking shape– do congratulate yourself on a job well done and let yourself enjoy the moment.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) “Nothing ventured, nothing gained” is as true now as the day it was coined. It’s your mantra now, so step out on faith and risk making the necessary commitments and taking the actions required to manifest your deepest desires. Your foundation is solid– build on it and it will support your dreams.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) With your ruling planet, Mercury, being retrograde from May 18th to June 11th, things will be more intense than usual. This Mercury retrograde period is very gnarly, so do become more retrospective as you slowly, steadily make your way toward your goals. After June 11th, you might have to do a little ‘repair’ work on the damage that the storm of the retrograde caused, but you’ll manage that easily.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Breathe a sigh of relief as the Universe acknowledges you in powerful ways. You must make an important decision for your present and future well-being, and that decision has to come from your heart and nowhere else. Your key words are Gratitude and Courage.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come. If the words, power, success and serenity mean anything to you, you are experiencing that phenomenon now. The Universe is providing you with the opportunity to become a Master and your real test is to promote what is happening with grace and trust.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) This is a time of sorting and testing. Circumstances are presenting you with the task of sorting through your philosophies and belief systems and choosing the ones that will serve you in your quest for a meaningful, rewarding life. Be willing to look at and accept the higher truth, even if it isn’t what you want to do. By doing so, you’ll pass the ‘test’ and change your destiny.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) What songs are in the playbook that makes up the soundtrack of your life? If those songs are sad, mournful tales, then you’re encouraging sad, mournful events to be attracted to you. If those songs are robust, inspiring anthems, then victory and helpful mates are traveling in your orbit. It really is that simple. Always choose to sing an uplifting song– your life will be a reflection of it.
STAR (January 20 – February 19) Now is the time to trust that the Universe has your back and put your plans into action. You’re in a lucky cycle and help from an unexpected source will be offered. Accept the help while still keeping your power and you’ll have a lot to celebrate in the coming months. As your journey gets a little easier, remember that a Higher Authority is in control, so feel, be and express gratitude.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) As you assess your present situation, be honest. Though it’s not always comfortable, the truth you acknowledge now sets the path for the next phase of your life, paving the way for great personal satisfaction and success. An opportunity for help from a large organization will be presented to you.
