Our communication with one another could be a little scrambled this week. This is all because Mercury will go into retrograde in Libra on the 17th September which won’t end until 9th October. This can be really difficult when it comes to our personal lives. Lovers from your past could pop up, making us question a current partnership. A romantic relationship may have been going well for months or years, all up until this moment. We should question how bad of an influence this past lover has on us before we act on impulse. Whatever we do, we should not jump ahead into this fantasy filled with nostalgia. Everyone should hold their horses until next week when we will have a clearer vision. Many of us will be a little confused about what we want and more importantly, who we want. It’s ok for our eyes to wander from time to time yet it’s important that we make sure we don’t land ourselves in bad circumstances. Be aware of any romances that could be a poisoned apple in disguise. Temptation could be at an all time high for this year, but it’s always best to proceed with caution.
ARIES (MARCH 21ST- APRIL 19TH)
Your love life plays a huge part in your week, Aries. The Mercury retrograde until 9th October until could annoy the living daylights out of you. Signals are getting all muddled up, stressing you out and making you lose sleep. You will need to express how you feel very clearly so that your love interest doesn’t get the wrong end of the stick. Do you want to take a relationship slow? To them, this might mean that the whole arrangement is casual when you don’t want it to be. Unfortunately, you’ll have to dodge any games, even if it’s all part of the excitement. Not texting someone back for a few days could make them believe you aren’t interested. Keep them on their toes but communicate, otherwise you’ll be forgotten. If this person is a busy bee, they might have very little time for people messing them around. Don’t give them a signal that they could misinterpret.
For people born under the sign of Taurus, you will need to read a few articles about how to survive the retrograde. When Mercury is in retrograde, it means that communications can be a little tricky. If you are well prepared, this may not be a problem for you in the slightest. Make sure you say how you feel with caution, especially around those who are particularly sensitive. If you are trying to explain yourself but go off track, this could upset someone and confuse them. In other news, you might end up listing what you really want from a partner. If you feel as if a relationship is uninspiring, it could be because it’s not satisfying you anymore. Has all romance gone out of the window? You need to ask yourself whether you’re being unrealistic or if a relationship has gone stale. This might be very difficult yet, once you get on the right path, you’ll never look back.
Romance will be very complicated for you, Gemini. Are you in or are you out? This week could see you sat on the fence, not knowing where to jump. A committed relationship could seem a little unattractive to you at the moment. Meaningful things you’ve said to a partner might not be how you feel anymore. Have you told someone that you’d like to move in with them, only to realise you want more time on your own? For many Geminis, it might mean you need to scale back on how much you plan into the future. You might realise now is the time to plan for what you want as an individual. Does this partner have a secured spot in your future? If they don’t, you will have to ask yourself why and act on it. Strong feelings shouldn’t be swept under the rug. The more you avoid this, the further away you’ll be from happiness.
Do you live with someone who is driving you up the wall? Unfortunately, there could be a lazy roommate or partner situation. Are they not doing their fair share of housework? Now is the time to speak up. Embarrassment could be on the cards if guests are a little disgusted about left-over dirty dishes. It’s not your responsibility to clean up after others, but it is your home. You should be allowed to say how you feel and point out what needs to change. If you express that it’s bothering you, they will at least have an opportunity to do something about it. This problem could be sorted by the end of the week, restoring peace in your environment.
In other news, you might decide to cut out the rubbish from your diet. During the colder months, we often become tempted to keep warm with fattier foods. Fortunately, this doesn’t have to be the case with you. Have a look at hearty online recipes that cut the calories instead of piling them on. You’ll feel much healthier by December, which is a brilliant way to end the year.
You’re the centre of attention this week Leo, especially when it comes to your career and relationships. Your natural confidence could make you believe you can fluke important projects. You need to be aware that a lot of effort must be shown this week. If you come across a little too cocky, this will stay in people’s minds for a long time. It’s time to make a good impression, which is why you’ll need to go above and beyond. In other news, you could learn that someone you have your eye on isn’t really the best match for you. You might mix up lust and love, which is a valuable lesson you will have to learn. In the future, you’ll be much better at telling apart who is good to look at and who you share a deeper connection with. Life is a huge lesson, so don’t beat yourself up. It might take a few dates to find someone you actually like as a person. They will come along in the end. Just be patient.
You seriously need to get those finances in order so that in a week or two, you don’t get a big shock. If you have a good amount in your bank, you might think you have some money to play with. Walking to the shops without a budget could make you splurge recklessly. Instead of doing this, spend as per usual and then treat yourself with the remaining money at the end of the month. Don’t put your card in that machine! Take a step back and shop around for any cheaper alternatives that could save you a pretty penny. Even though it’s a great time to save, make sure you set aside some cash for your birthday celebrations. You shouldn’t miss out on that! Book a table at your favourite restaurant with your friends and have a good time.
In other news, two colleagues may have fallen out over something silly and this could turn into some major office gossip. If either of these colleagues visit your desk for a rant or drop you an email, offer them words of advice. Don’t join in with the nasty words this person will have to say. Instead, advise them that it’s better to patch things up rather than dig a bigger hole. Be the positive force people need!
Your sign will be going retrograde alongside Mercury on 17th which means you’ll experience crossed wires. People could get the wrong end of the stick, regardless of what you’re saying. It’s a good time to be careful about what you express around important authority figures. A manager might assume something negative about you which could affect your career. Silly, right? Yes, this is a little unfair but this is why this retrograde is a time where you might need to rethink what comes out of your mouth. It’s a good idea to go through your Twitter account and delete the tweets that include swear words. If your boss decides to check out what you get up to after work, they could see something they aren’t a fan of. Without realising, your online profiles could be making you look like someone you’re not. Filtering out or making some content private could help you out big time.
You have a lot to share this week Scorpio but just make sure you spill the beans to the right people. There might be a colleague you trust yet it is important to keep your work and personal life separate. If you feel as if you’re bursting from the seams, contact a friend who has known you for a long time. This person will be someone who can help you deal with this problem because they know your emotions well. In the past, they may have experienced a similar situation which is why they can give logical advice. With friends, it’s important that you know who to trust. A new friend might end up being someone who thrives on drama, which will disappoint you. Problems like these are the exact reason why you should stick to an older friend. The retrograde will make you realise who is loyal and who is not.
This week, you need to focus on your friendships. TheMercury retrograde will bring to light who is a real friend and who is just pretending to be for their benefit. We all come across people who would prefer war over peace. Luckily this week, you’ll be able to spot this person from a mile off. Make sure you listen very carefully to what they are saying to other people in your group. Are they someone who gives positive advice or are they giving an upset person more fuel for their fire? By the end of the week, you’ll know their game and friends will no longer be a fool to their sneaky ways. This week, you might even meet up with an old bunch of friends you haven’t seen for a while. Does one of your best friends live far away? This could be an excellent opportunity for an unmissable day out. Schedule something fun for them to do so you can have a well-deserved giggle. The weekend is set to be a great one, packed full of memorable activities.
This week is all about trying to help other people, Capricorn. If you want to be in a better position financially, you might need to start rolling up your sleeves. Is there a project you could help with? Speak up and try not to stick to what you know. Do your research so that by Monday morning, you can suggest ideas that help the team. Applying new knowledge could be noticed by important people in your workplace. Better yet, if you spot a night class that specialises in a subject that relates to your job, go for it! Your boss could ask you how you’ve excelled, which could be the perfect time to tell them about your other efforts. It’s onwards and upwards for you, only if dedicate your time and effort!
It’s time to be true to yourself, Aquarius. You may have felt a certain way for a long time but felt it’s been better to put it off for as long as possible. The Mercury retrograde in Libra could make your communication a bit iffy, which is why it’s better to pace yourself. If what you want to tell someone is on the negative side, rambling on could upset them. As a caring Aquarius, this is the last thing you want to do. Take your time, think about what you want to say and approach them in a calm manner. Do you want to tell someone that you love them? Do this at a time where you feel more comfortable. Blurting it out in the middle of IKEA might throw them off a little. Instead, try telling them in a way that takes away the pressure. After this week, you’ll feel miles better after opening up and being truthful. Thankfully by December, your year will end on a very positive note.
Do you know a partner’s real intentions? With your dreamy attitude, you might be ignoring the red flags that are flying all over the place. You may have once stated that you only want a carefree relationship with no real commitment yet after several months, this may have completely changed. Is this the same for your partner or have they stuck by their words? Unfortunately, if they don’t want the same things, it’s time you face the truth. You need to stop ignoring what they are telling you. Think about how this alters the next five years of your life. Many relationships start off where two people want the same things yet in life this can always change. The positive thing is, you’ll know where you stand and this will make it easier for you to get what you want in the future. Who wants to waste their time on a partnership where you have to sacrifice your happiness? Be true to what you want and you’ll find a perfect match.
