For the week of Mar. 17 – Mar. 23, 2005

For All Signs
Mercury, the planet that rules communications, common business practice and travel, turns retrograde on Mar. 19 and will remain so until April 12. During this period it is best to avoid finalizing major decisions or signing contractual agreements. Seemingly good ideas are often discovered later to have flaws or missing information. Projects that are begun during the cycle often cannot be completed until several months later, at the next retrograde. (Don’t put a piece of property on the market now!) The cycle is most beneficially used to complete old plans, gather information on proposed ideas, and reflect on past progress. It is meant for gestation and introspection, the dark and quiet time needed for new seeds to take root.

Aries - The Ram (Mar. 20 - Apr. 19)
This is a week loaded with shifts in direction. You may no sooner decide on one thing than you switch to another. Be aware you are trying on answers, just as one tries on clothes. Under these cosmic circumstances it is perfectly normal to argue with yourself.

Taurus There is significant pressure in your relationship. One of you is attempting to manipulate the other. The only possible outcome of this behavior is anger and negativity. Stay alert and don’t allow power plays to run your decisions.

Gemini You are likely to find yourself thinking a lot about old friends and may want to get in touch with some of them. This is a time for nostalgia and reminiscence. Others are thinking about you, too, but you are a sign with more initiative than many, so they’ll be glad if you pick up the telephone.

Cancer It may feel as though you can’t find the ground beneath your feet. This may lead to an edginess and irritability, the cause of which you cannot exactly define. Remember that you are moon ruled, and every mood will evolve into something different if you wait only two days.

Leo Clean up details left from the past month and prepare for a shift of attention toward travel, education, spiritual pursuits, or legal interests. Start thinking and planning for your next vacation. This week brings a positive opportunity to heal an old wound with a significant other.

Virgo Please note the lead paragraph. Your ruling planet is Mercury. As it turns retrograde in your 8th house of “joint resources,” you will likely experience a need to go back and review financial history. Given this is tax time, be alert to the probability of errors.

Libra Take especially good care of your health this week. You may be subject to allergic reactions, which will reduce the strength of your immune system. People with whom you work may try your patience by pressuring you to do things you’d rather not.

Scorpio During this period the temptation is strong to become hooked into a manipulative move in a relationship. You may be the perpetrator or the victim. Either way, the game is immature and not worth your energy. Don’t waste your precious emotional vigor.

Sagittarius It is important at this time to maintain an open mind about the prospect of change within your close relationship(s). You may not feel safe on the front end of a change, but relationship(s) that are captured in concrete will crack from the cold.

Capricorn As your ruling planet Saturn changes direction to “direct” this week, you may notice a subtle change in your attitude. You may become more internally definite about just what direction you want to grow your ambitions. While Mercury remains retrograde it is best to research.

Aquarius You are ready to fight for your rights or those of other significant people in your life. The best use of this energy is to promote the welfare or cause of those who are suffering. You are quick to say what is on your mind, particularly on behalf of the disenfranchised.

Pisces An authority figure or other person of power may attempt to blame you for something over which you had no control. Make an effort to remain calm and do not waste emotional energy worrying about this issue. Love life is not so great right now. It will smooth out soon.
