For the week of September 12-18, 2002

For All Signs Between September 14 and October 6, Mercury, planet of communications, will turn retrograde in the sign of Libra. Because Libra is a relationship sign, we will have a few weeks to contemplate our personal relationships. We may feel the need to set previous decisions on hold for a thinking period. This is likely to affect global issues as well. During Mercury retrograde periods it is difficult to bring things to fruition or to draw final conclusions. It is a far better time to turn inward and devote energy to reflection. Because Mercury rules communications and transportation of all types, it is wise during these periods to double-check any data that is important in these areas.

Aries This is probably a good week to focus on solitary projects. Your adrenaline is pumping and you may feel short-tempered. Count to 10 before you open your mouth or you may wish you hadn't. Use that adrenaline to step up your exercise program and compete with yourself on personal goals.

Taurus Conditions are favorable for travel, education, and the law. You are tempted to hear what you want to hear concerning a significant relationship. When we care about someone it is all too easy to ignore red flags or hope they will somehow vaporize in time.

Gemini Please take special note of the lead paragraph, Twins, because Mercury is your ruling planet. It will be retrograding in your territory of children, creative life, and romance. You may feel the need to reconsider relationship decisions.

Cancer Everyday demands may be more likely to get on your nerves this week. Vehicles and other machinery may not be cooperative. Your adrenaline is pumping, so increase your exercise moderately and you will probably feel better overall. Focus attention on activities you can manage without assistance from others.

Leo You and a partner or significant other may have difficulty coming to a meeting of the minds this week. You both need a little space, and maybe a short time of focusing elsewhere would refresh your spirit. The situation is not likely serious, just a little problematic.

Virgo You may be operating at odds with your own nature this week. Virgo may think irritable thoughts about others, but rarely says them. Though you are not commonly ego driven, experiences at work or with authority figures may cause you to feel you need to speak out in your own behalf.

Libra Give attention to the lead paragraph. Mercury is turning retrograde in your sign and will be more likely to affect your daily affairs than many of the other signs. It isn't easy for you to make decisions in the first place, but don't even try to finalize anything while a retrograding Mercury is with you.

Scorpio Venus has entered your sign and will be traveling "with you" through the end of the year. Her presence gives you an air of poise and beauty, and people will simply like how you look. Often when Venus is prominent we become more interested in art forms and personal appearance.

Sagittarius You will love anything self-indulgent, playful, and fun this week. It is not the best of times for those on a diet, but maybe you can indulge yourself in alternative ways instead. You may have a new car bug, but it is best not to make that decision while Mercury is retrograding.

Capricorn Aspects favor social and romantic life. The mood is one of forgiveness and healing of old wounds. Venus is in your corner. If you have an interest in improving your appearance, now is the time to get that fresh haircut, buy new glasses, or look for new clothes.

Aquarius You and a partner may not see eye to eye on the subject of shared resources at this time. You are seeing a big picture and a broad point of view, while your partner is looking at what is needed in the here and now. If the issue is of great importance, find more information and set the final decision aside temporarily.

Pisces You have several aspects that favor romance, the arts, and things of beauty. You may be the happy recipient of small gifts or favors from someone who cares about you. Your mind wants to wander in the world of fantasy, daydreams, good books, and music.
