Friends have answers and solutions. Delegate to an expert colleague. Track the overall project and let go of needing to control how it gets accomplished. Others contribute brilliance. Make sure they have what they need.
Get your gang together and a mess develops naturally. It's part of the beautification process. Don't spend money. Make what you need. Creativity abounds. Expand a group project to the next level. Clean up later.
Don't worry about entertaining everyone. Peaceful solitude restores you today and tomorrow. Refocus your priorities towards health and happiness. Reschedule if necessary. Slow and easy does it. Haste makes waste. Wait until a partner is free. Relax.
The Full Moon in your sign illuminates your confidence and personal growth. Begin a new powerful phase. For about four months with Saturn retrograde, review and reconsider personal decisions. Old friends are most valuable during this phase. Return to basics. Invent new traditions and honor old ones. Each ending allows a new beginning in a collaboration. Your applause is greatly appreciated. Reinvent your partnership under this New Moon.

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.
