Mercury is going Retrograde again as it does four times a year! (from 1/5 through 1/25 when it goes Direct). Mercury rules our thoughts and speech.
A reminder: Always read important documents over carefully and don’t sign contracts or make new commitments if at all possible. If you must, just be sure to get a second opinion and pay extra attention to details. Negotiations can go okay if you very aware of what is being said, but try and wait before making final decisions. You could forget some of the important details and misunderstandings can easily occur.
Retrograde planets can certainly have a positive side. We get another chance to back up and redo things and they can wind up even better than before! You could figure out what hasn’t been working very well and implement some new changes. This is a great time to reorganize your life. Friends from the past and even former clients often pop up unexpectedly! This can be a very positive experience for both of you.
So, remember to read things over very well, especially if you don’t completely understand something. Ask questions and also remember to use spell check. Be especially aware of texting the wrong words if you don’t take the time to read what you said before hitting that send button. Don’t buy electronic equipment, wait a few weeks; often it has to be returned for some reason anyway.
This week also sees Jupiter taking a rest (going retrograde) all the way into May, (more like a slow down for Mr Jupiter) from giving out opportunities, growth, expansion and luck. (from 1/7 through 5/9 when he goes Direct).
To the Virgos, with Jupiter now in Virgo, worry not, he will be back to either continue what he started or finally get to you. It all depends if the degrees are early or later in your chart. If you are a Virgo or have Virgo Rising in your chart, think back to twelve years ago, as to what was happening in your life, and you will get some idea of might be happening for you. Wherever you have Virgo in your chart, in whatever planet or house, something there will enlarge or expand as Jupiter connects at or near those degrees.
And, lucky me with Virgo as my Rising Sign (also called the Ascendant). I have been having a pretty good year so far and I am expecting things to pick up in May when Jupiter moves forward again. Jupiter completes his one year journey in Virgo on 9/10/16 and will then enter the sign of Libra for one year!
