Your home planet is retrograde during its square to Mercury on May 1, but it still packs a punch. Your thinking is deeply rooted as you focus on a specific topic of your choosing. If you have to convince other people you’re right, choose your words carefully and speak slowly. A sun-Saturn retrograde trine on the eleventh brings your hard work into the spotlight, and you might finally get some of the recognition you deserve. You probably won’t let the applause last long – there’s more work to be done, after all – but at least now you know people appreciate your efforts. ? Have you been stuck in a rut recently? Changes are likely during the Venus-Uranus conjunction in Taurus on May 18, especially in romantic relationships or finances. Mixing things up can be good, but don’t act too quickly. The sun enters perceptive Gemini on the twenty-first, so a lot of things might come into focus that you’ve been wondering about lately. Is it better now that you know? Being (or acting) ignorant can have its upside, but there’s no going back once you see the light.

Use clear thinking and good judgment to your advantage during the Mercury-Saturn sextile on April 7. There are few situations that don’t benefit from your increased concentration and focus at the start of the month. A more trying sun-Saturn square on the tenth brings tests and challenges, but you should be ready for them if you’ve done the necessary work. You don’t often let people see you struggle, and this time is no exception. Versatile Mercury enters strong-willed Aries on April 16, leading you to quick solutions and pioneering thoughts. You might not always consider every option, but you’re great at coming up with escape plans on the spur of the moment. The brilliant sun enters indulgent Taurus on the twentieth, creating a rich and pleasurable atmosphere to play in. You love luxury now and surround yourself with the best of the best. If cost is no option, you’re in for some very indulgent treats. When hardworking Saturn goes retrograde on the twenty-ninth, you get some much-needed perspective. Maybe working every minute of the day isn’t necessary to reach your lofty goals. If there’s an alternate solution to working your butt off, you’ll find it now.

Mercury goes retrograde on March 5, dishing out its usual helping of problems. You pride yourself on always finding a solution, but sometimes there just aren’t any when it comes to Mercury retrograde. So, what now? Try to sit tight (and bite your tongue) until Mercury heads direct on March 28. The sun sextiles your power planet Saturn on the ninth, which should help you gain more control over your current situation. Whatever you’re going through, you have the tools to make improvements. Don’t lose confidence. Mercury is still retrograde when it sextiles Saturn on March 20, so your judgment might not be as sharp as usual. Can’t put off making major decisions? Listen to other people’s opinions before you make your final choice. Financially focused Venus enters creative Pisces on the twenty-sixth, which makes the end of the month a good time to pursue interesting ways to make money. You excel at anything you make with your hands.

What can you accomplish in a month with no retrograde periods? A whole lot, starting when Venus enters your practical and ambitious sign on February 3, enabling you to set some monster goals and tackle them efficiently. The moon moves into emotional Pisces on the fifth, and you can’t always relate to the sensitive energy of the Fish. While this lunar energy should make you a bit more understanding, you might not get as much done as you’d like. Money-driven Venus conjoins your home planet of ambitious Saturn on February 18, making financial ventures slightly risky. Try to disconnect emotions from logic. The Mercury-Pluto sextile on the twenty-third makes conversations interesting, and you might use lots of innuendo and sarcasm. If you want to know what someone’s really thinking, you have ways of figuring it out. The moon spends time in Sagittarius on February 27 and February 28, opening the door to mental freedom and carefree expression. You’re more outgoing now than usual, leading to some fun social interactions. Don’t hold back!
