Do what you love. Include a water element. Imagine swimming in the ocean. Prepare for change coming soon. Assume authority. Admit if a pet idea won't work. Unexpected results could prove beneficial. Get social.
Have fun with your partner. It doesn't need to involve a lot of talk. Support each other to pursue a passion. Invest in greater efficiency. Pay for it with your own money. Grab a good deal.
Handle work issues today and tomorrow. It could get intense or be long-lasting. No more procrastination... dive in and provide excellent service. The quicker you move, the quicker you're done. Rest up after.
A quiet phase begins with the Full Moon. Take time to get lost in thought. Introspection illuminates practical insight. Meditate. Communications come into sharp focus over the next seven months (with Pluto direct). It's easier to get the word out, and your networks expand. One phase closes as another opens in your family finances with this New Moon. Work with budgets, spreadsheets and financial services. Handle insurance details and file papers. Go with the most practical options.

The smallest planet in the Solar System, Mercury's closest to the Sun and completes an orbit every 88 days.
Mercury's retrograde lasts about three weeks, and occurs three times a year. Mercury's the planet that rules over communication, intellect, education, commerce and transportation. Retrograde effects include slowing, blocking, jamming and breakdowns. Listening and reviewing gets more important, as the message can become garbled, lost or delayed.
Mercury's the ruling planet for both Gemini and Virgo, so people born under these signs can be more affected by Mercury Retrograde.

Mars is the action planet, named for the warrior god in Roman mythology. It takes the fourth planet about 687 Earth days to orbit the Sun.
When Mars goes retrograde, which it does every 2 and a half years (usually for two months), thought takes precedence over overt actions, and pressure can become internalized. Stress can lead to health problems, and impulsiveness can lead to arguments and accidents. Release emotion with exercise. It's a good time to take it slower, review the plans, and re-define goals and methods. Avoid risky business, for love or money. New endeavors can stall or may not go as intended, so it's better to choose a launch date after Mars goes direct.
Mars retrograde affects each person individually according to their natal chart, but in general, Mars rules Aries and Scorpio, so these signs are especially affected.
