The Twins: (May 20 -- June 21)
The probability is high that you will discover some error made in the past that must be rectified fairly soon. It may be as simple as finding a bill that was forgotten and left unpaid. You may need to review your financial picture now, but it is best to set final decisions aside until after July 9.
For All Signs: It's that time again. Mercury turns retrograde on June 15. It is probable that many have felt its energy approaching. Mercury rules travel, communications, streets, highways, newspapers, the post office, phone companies and e-mail, to name a few. Any business with significant interests in travel or communications is likely to be affected. Even voice mail or simple conversation can be misunderstood more readily. Double check what you think you heard, especially if it seems a little odd. Mercury turns direct on July 9. Its pattern of retrogradation is three times per year, and the calendar dates vary from year to year. See the sun and rising signs below for the additional areas requiring attention during this retrograde.
Aries: Mercury's area of focus is related to property, family and issues of security. You are likely reworking things in one of these territories. Family members may be erratic or hard to pin down, making it difficult to conclude open agendas. Have patience.
Taurus: During this Mercury retrograde period, those who have siblings will get in touch and may reminisce or go back over old issues together. You will have more challenges with heavy traffic, torn up roads or minor car repairs than some of the other signs.
Cancer: Give attention to the lead paragraph. Mercury is turning retrograde in your sign and will be more likely to affect your daily affairs than many of the other signs. Don't press for conclusions in any area. Use the energy to research information and gather resources for better informed decisions later.
Leo: During this period your thoughts may drift to the past more than is normal for you. You may have a desire to contact old friends or lost family members. Some of you are drawn to study your dreams or begin a journal. You are thinking about your past and how you came to be who you are. It is a worthy project.
Virgo: Mercury is retrograding in the territory that concerns friends, organizations and community contacts. You may be having difficulty bringing things to fruition or conclusion in any of these areas. Changes of plans are likely. You may have surprise encounters with people from your social past.
Libra: During the next few weeks, Mercury is retrograding in your house of career and life direction. Decisions you thought you had made may need to be thought through once again before you act upon them. They might even be discarded altogether.
Scorpio: Mercury is changing directions in the territory which deals with education, publishing, travel, public speaking, the law and philosophy. Therefore, any of these activities are subject to shifts, changes or sudden deceleration due to lack of decision. Have a sense of humor.
Sagittarius: Mercury's focal point for the Archers is in your 8th house of "joint resources." This includes partner's income, alimony, child support, stocks, scholarships, loans and money owed to you. In essence, it includes all resources that are not personal income. Be alert to mistakes here.
Capricorn: Mercury is retrograding in the area of significant others, contracts, consultants and clientele. Indecisions concerning one or more of these people in your life may generate some aggravation for you. Relax. It isn't time for anyone to be fully clear about what they want.
Aquarius: Mercury is retrograding in your 6th house territory of daily routines, caretaking, personal health, coworkers, employees and rental property. In one or more of these areas, you may experience slow motion, change of mind or a need to back off and regroup. Things in your life may seem in disarray, but this will change when Mercury goes direct.
Pisces: Mercury is turning retrograde in the territory that rules love life, children, play and creative efforts. Anything on your radar screen that is related to these areas is subject to turnaround, review, deceleration, rethinking for a few weeks. Maybe you'll want to check out a previous love interest.
