THURSDAY MARKS THE halfway peak of Mercury retrograde. Revitalized by a conjunction with the sun, the planet now becomes visible in the morning sky. From here, we launch into the “light of day” portion of the three-week retrograde cycle. We’ll begin to see how more of the bits and pieces fit into place.

If you need to have a talk or work something out, Thursday and Friday provide a window. These days are also good for socializing, shopping, sharing, and romance. Even so, Mercury/Venus in opposition to Eris on Friday can put a sharper edge on money matters and relationship needs. Watch for added impulsiveness and impetuousness or an aggressive tone to “I want” or “I need.”

Saturday through Monday, the transiting Virgo moon keeps us on a productive move-along. The sun and moon, our conscious and subconscious drives, are in good shape on Saturday. Venus and Mars, the relationship duo, fare similarly on Sunday. Mercury and Jupiter, our left- and right-brain, connect-the-dots planets, are in good shape on Monday. Tuesday’s Libra moon keeps it fairly easy going, but by Wednesday, it’s striking flint with Pluto, Uranus, Mercury, and Jupiter.

A precursor to Thursday’s solar eclipse, Wednesday is likely to be an eventful or news-generating day. A key someone could act as an agent, a messenger, or an instigator. Something you hear, read, see, feel, or experience will get the ball rolling in a notable, even destiny-making way.

Aries
March 20 – April 19

Thursday/Friday lights a fresh spark. Setting yourself up from here presents a number of options, but there’s likely to be one that stands out from the rest. The sun, Mercury, and Venus make your better picks or worthier battles more obvious. A keep-it-rolling week lies ahead. You can make good headway with projects, plans, and talks. A reconnection, replay, or revisit factors significantly.

Taurus
April 19 – May 20

Are you feeling challenged by too much, too many, too fast—and/or not enough? Mercury retrograde is putting you to work. Even so, the stars are helping keep you sharp and up to speed. You’ll spend, but you’ll also cash in. By Sunday/Monday, you should feel you’re getting a handle on it all.

Gemini
May 20 – June 21

A competitive edge can be a good thing when it spurs you to up your game. Keep it fun—give spontaneity the keys Thursday/Friday. The sun, Venus, and Mercury make for great socializing or shopping. They can keep the sexual and romantic chemistry on a ready tap too. Sunday/Monday, clean up and clear away what you can. Tuesday/Wednesday, something potent is on brew.

Cancer
June 21 – July 22

As is typical of Mercury retrograde, Thursday/Friday you could re-meet your past in some significant way. This can happen through a conversation, visit, or memory jog. Thursday through Monday is an opportune time to have a heart-to-heart or money talk. The sun, Venus, and Mercury keep the action hopping on the family, home, wallet, and heart fronts.

Leo
July 22 – August 22

Right place, time, words, instincts; through Saturday, the Leo moon keeps you cashing it in. It’s a great weekend to do a repeat show, to attend or participate, to cross paths again. Necessary or desired, all upgrades are money well spent. A well-established or budding relationship, an important conversation, negotiation, or legal matter will now move to the next level.

Virgo
August 22 – September 22

Looking good, feeling good, sounding good. Thursday through Monday, you can cash it in. The sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde highlight your best side. You should find you gain positive results and feedback, and that you can easily attract attention, call in favours, or make money. Thursday/Friday turns up the love, romance, and pleasure. Saturday through Monday, the shots are yours to call.

Libra
September 22 – October 23

It’s full-on and full steam ahead. The next few days can be exceptional. You’ll find you have a great talent for thinking and acting on the spot. Let spontaneity run the show—you’re at your sharpest, wittiest, and most creative when you partner up with the moment. Thursday, Friday, and next Wednesday are your best make-it-happen days.

Scorpio
October 23 – November 22

Alone or with your lover, a get-away-from-it-all weekend can be heaven-sent. Relaxation and romance are top of the list, but the stars can also put you into a wonderful creative spurt. If you feel overwhelmed or uncertain, give yourself extra time to feel your way along. Over the next week, the stars will give you more to go on.

Sagittarius
November 22 – December 21

Social or romantic, there’s good news, good sharing, and excitement to be had Thursday/Friday. Whether you plan it or it simply happens, a meet-up is auspicious. Over the next week, another talk or look-see can domino into something quite significant. Aim to impress or repeat a success. Tuesday/Wednesday, popularity, relationship harmony, communications, and moneymaking prospects hit an upswing.

Capricorn
December 21 – January 19

Show off your best, up your game; the presentation counts Thursday/Friday. You stand to make excellent mileage with the bank, a boss, a partner, or someone special to you. Saturday through Monday keeps you busy and gaining great ground. Tuesday/Wednesday, stay receptive; talk, listen, observe, and feel your way along. Ask for an opinion, but decide for yourself.

Aquarius
January 19 – February 18

You’re all clear for travel. Over the next week, your social and creative flow is at peak. You certainly won’t be at a loss for things to say or do. Conversation and same-page accord are on a ready dial-up. Spontaneity delivers it best, especially Thursday/Friday. Monday through Wednesday keeps you on a roll.

Pisces
February 18 – March 20

The workweek ends on a positive, feels-good note. Reward yourself for a job well done. Spend money on yourself, call up a friend, or go all out for romance Thursday/Friday. Saturday through Monday, play catch-up, tie up loose ends, aim for healthy or practical choices. Creative, social, or romantic, Wednesday onward pushes a major Refresh button.
