The pace quickens. You're getting more creative, and sensitive. Resist the urge to fling emotions. Use your words. Get contemplative today and tomorrow. Assign or accept work projects on an intuitive basis. Vivid dreams could fill your journal.
You need assent, not permission. For about two months, review and revise the budget, developing future plans. Resistance causes persistence. Work interferes with playtime. Stay flexible, and remember your motivation. Old objects and traditions benefit your family.
You're more confident (and less patient) today and tomorrow. You're extra hot, but be careful. Don't burn anyone. Don't do everything your partner suggests, either. Take a leap of faith, and choose the perfect gift. Compromise.
Completion and new beginnings re your house launch a new project. Expect more changes. Celebrate what you've accomplished. Be supportive. Change something about your home, or career, or both. Lunar eclipse - turning point re: money. Turning point re: your relationships. For about seven months, it's easier to make decisions. It's easier to fix things, with Uranus direct.

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.
