New responsibilities cause changes at home. Creativity is required. Stay confident and patient, one step ahead of the eight ball. Allow some flexibility. Let others solve their own problems. Friends help out when you ask.
Invite friends to share some inexpensive fun. Think about practicalities. Don't brag about winning while the game's still going on. You're on the right track. Walking gets more than talking. Get outside and play.
Today and tomorrow favor thinking and consideration over big action, although Mars enters Aries today for a power-boost (until April 20). Compromise and plan the course. Listen to what your team says. Take a philosophical view.
Slow and steady wins the race. One phase ends and another begins with this New moon. Research pays off. Develop flexible plans, and choose your new direction. For about eight weeks with Mars retrograde, proceed with caution. Forward momentum slows, and there's time to look back and take stock. Plan and strategize. Old friends are extra valuable now. For about four and a half months with Saturn retrograde, finish up old business. Keep revising your action plan, updating strategies as needed. Money's easier to find for the next eight months, now that Jupiter's direct. It's easier to concentrate. People listen now. Tell them how much you appreciate them. A Full Moon turning point in your career becomes obvious. Work could interfere with domestic plans. Review all the options before committing. Follow your curiosity. Completion and new beginnings develop around the New Moon. Get ready to advance your agenda. Reveal something you've kept hidden. Expand your influence.

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.
