One week down, two more to go. Mercury retrograde continues to February 11. The flavour is Aquarius this time, so there’s even more reason to keep alert for the unexpected. The politics can get even more complicated, especially regarding involvements with friends, groups, and community matters. The potential for accidents, miscommunication, and derailment can increase.
On Friday, Mercury retrograde aligns with the sun. This is the midway point of the cycle. It’s the synthesis point where you can gain better recognition regarding how things have shaped up and what part you’ve played in it. It allows for a reprieve from the Mercury retrograde rule, so if there’s something on your mind, it’s a good day to come clean with it. You can’t stop life while the retrograde is happening, so get on it instead. Also, feel free to renew a contract, mortgage, or lease.
Helping matters along, Venus surpasses a Saturn wall early Friday. Venus, freshly in Pisces, now allows for a better, easier flow. It’s good for romance, music, and moviegoing, too. The moon in Cancer keeps home, family, and comfort plans on a hum-along for the weekend. By Sunday’s Super Bowl, Venus joins Neptune, while Mars joins controversial Chiron. Emotions can run the gamut. On the field and off, we’ll get our entertainment fill.
Monday’s stars keep things upbeat and productive. Tuesday’s full moon in Leo keeps it exciting and/or pushes it over the top. Synchronicity and opportunity are at peak. Perhaps there’s reason to celebrate.
March 20 - April 20
Friday’s Mercury/sun dishes up the right time to get the sensed and felt out in the open. The air-clearing will increase your comfort level. A repeat or replay can be even better than the first time.

January 20 - February 18
Thursday/Friday, you’ll get much better informed or connected. Mercury/sun cuts to the chase. It can also spark déjà vu, a replay, or a double take. Saturday through Tuesday, ride the wave. A sudden flash or impulse is well worth acting on; the moment can deliver big. Tuesday’s the big day. You can find yourself on the plus, bonus, or win side.
February 18 - March 20
You’ll get a better feel of how it’s shaping up or what direction to take it from Friday onward. Saturday/Sunday, immerse yourself right where you are and allow for things to unfold naturally. Time, interaction, or inspiration will fill in the missing blanks. On Tuesday, go with what comes easily, or is freshest or most creative.
