Aries
Aries

Things are about to get a lot more copasetic, Aries. If you feel like you’ve been having difficulty working with a partner on a project or just feeling like everything has been on the up-and-up at work don’t worry because there is a change coming.

Today messenger Mercury, wakes up from a three-week retrograde snooze fest that saw him backtracking into your 7th House of one-on-one relationships and legal contracts, impacting everything from romance to work in the process. During this time, it’s been all but impossible to get a clear read on the work and people in front of you, and there are few things an Aries finds more obnoxious than not understanding what’s in front of them, but that trend comes to an end today as Mercury resumes forward motion.

It might take a few days for the winged messenger to fully get back up to speed, but know that clear communication is coming your way.

Taurus
Taurus

Things have probably been a little confusing on the work front lately, Taurus, and if they haven’t then you should be rather impressed with yourself for holding it together. Life’s been a bit of a juggling act with messenger Mercury retrograde in Libra and your 6th House of work and routine for the last few weeks, but I’m happy to tell you that today this signal-scrambling transit comes to an end as Mercury wakes up and gets back to work.

It may take a little while for him to stretch and drink his coffee and get back up to speed, but you should start to see roadblocks disappear where before they seemed absolutely insurmountable, so roll up your sleeves and get to work because you’re going to have to put in a lot less effort to see a lot more reward. How lovely is that?

Gemini
Gemini

Well, well, well, look who gets a few weeks of fun added to their personal program? In case you’re wondering, we’re talking about you, Gemini. Today messenger Mercury wakes up from three weeks of hitting the snooze button in your 5th House of romance and creativity, giving you a second shot at ironing out any hiccups that life might have sent your way.

Now that he’s waking up and getting back to his usual business, Mercury is going to be putting his foot to the gas and sending you off into the future at lightning speed. When the planet of communication retrogrades through this sector of our chart we often come into contact with old projects we once worked on but never brought all the way to fruition.

If you want to find a way to turn this transit to your advantage look at your old projects and ask yourself if any of them have a value you’ve missed out on. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by what you find.

Cancer
Cancer

You’ve been going through a bit of an emotion ocean for the last few weeks while messenger Mercury has been spinning backwards in retrograde formation through your foundational 4th House of home and family. During this time your focus would largely be oriented towards matters around the house and dealing with lots of internal issues; this transit is, for the most part, completely uninterested in financial matters but the downside of that it isn’t bringing you any help on that front, either.

Today, however, Mercury wakes up from this position and gets back to work–he might need to do some stretching and get in a few cups of coffee, but he’ll be back to his old self soon enough and what that means for you is that you’re going to be feeling much better and less bogged down that you have in some time. Not only will that lighten your spiritual load, but it’s going to give you more energy to devote to all other matters, so there’s two things to be thankful for today.

Leo
Leo

It looks as though you’ve been very, very busy lately, Leo, but busy doesn’t always equal productive or fun despite even the best efforts, and lord knows you always put in your best effort. Today things might start to be a little less hectic and a little more efficient, however, thanks to the fact that messenger Mercury is turning direct after spending the last three weeks hitting the snooze button in your 3rd House of communications and friendship.

Since Mercury naturally rules the 3rd House the elements were especially off, and it wouldn’t surprise me one bit if it’s felt all but impossible to get a read on people, be they professional or platonic people, over the last few weeks. Happily you can look forward to things making sense again and Mercury resumes his correct course and powers forward; the green light is finally on, so don’t be scared to hit the gas.

Virgo
Virgo

There is some very, very good news for you, Virgo, so sit down and listen then you can go and bask in the universe’s favor.

Money matters have been causing you more than a little bit of confusion over the last three weeks as you had to deal with messenger Mercury swimming backwards in retrograde formation through your 2nd House of earned income and financial matters; this transit can always create issues with regards to your income, so hopefully you managed to weather the storm alright without too many problems coming your way.

Today, however, the skies overhead are bright and blue as Mercury wakes up from his snooze fest and resumes forward motion in your money sector, once again giving you the galactic green light to surge ahead with you grand ideas. If the last month or so brought nothing but roadblocks before you know that those are about to disappear in the blink of an eye.

Libra
Libra

Finally, you can think clearly again, Libra. Things have probably felt more than a little confusing lately as you’ve been hosting the current Mercury retrograde in your sign and your 1st House of self-expression and action.

With the cosmic communicator taking a very long nap in your sign it’s only too easy to feel completely out of sync with just about everyone you come into contact with, be it professional or otherwise, but I’m incredibly happy to tell you that that transit comes to an end today as Mercury wakes up and surges forward once again.

It’ll take the messenger planet a few days to get back up to his regular speed (the zodiac equivalent of some morning yoga and a few cups of coffee) but once he does know that you’re going to have plenty of star power pushing you ahead to the future. You’ve got this, Libra.

Scorpio
Scorpio

Things are about to start coming off a lot clearer, Scorpio, and not a moment too soon. You’ve had messenger Mercury, the buzziest planet of the zodiac, hitting the snooze button in your 12th House for an extended stay as he spent the last few weeks retrograde in this ‘hidden’ sector of your chart.

With Mercury not only stationed here but also in retrograde motion, he was doing just about the bare minimum to help you through life and figure out just what exactly it is you want to say in order to communicate your ideas. Your sign isn’t exactly known for its tact at the best of times, so this transit could have scrambled more than a few signals.

Fortunately, that ends today as Mercury wakes up and begins stretching and doing some yoga poses, getting ready to work his way back up to top speed. It’ll still take a week or two for him to get there, but once he does you’ll be ready to wow ‘em with your next big pitch.

Sagittarius
Sagittarius

Oh, you did understand? Finally! You could feel as though your messages are finally hitting the mark again after weeks of mixed signals and miscommunication have sent you pinging back and forth from one group of people to the next, each one leaving you a little less certain of what you said to the last.

The reason for this? Messenger Mercury will finally turn direct in your 11th House of social groups and global communications after spending three weeks in retrograde formation, hitting the snooze button for the last time this AM before waking up and getting back to work.

He’ll need to drink a few cups of coffee and do some stretching before he’s fully ready to resume his old M.O. but the good news is that moving forward people will be more receptive to your ideas, and conversely you’ll be able to wow ‘em with an epic pitch on the fly, so don’t fear sticking your foot in your mouth because the time for that is over.

Capricorn
Capricorn

There is some terrific career news for you, Capricorn, and while it might not come with a paycheck attached right away, trust that you’re going to be more than a little pleased with the new developments in the works.

Messenger Mercury has spent the last few weeks hitting the snooze button in your 10th House of career goals and professional achievements, and while he’s here he’s been scrambling all sorts of signals, making it all but impossible for you to feel secure in your work. Well, fortunately that cycle of confusion ends today as Mercury turns direct and starts getting his act together to come to your aid.

It will take a couple days for Mercury to build up speed and get back to his old buzzy self, but you’ll start to see progress on the work front where there recently only seemed to be road blocks. What a wonderful treat, Capricorn!

Aquarius
Aquarius

The world is calling your name, Aquarius, and whether you’re using subtitles, dubbing, or even learned a whole new language, it seems as though you can finally understand all those different voices calling out for you.

This newfound sense of clarity is thanks to the fact that messenger Mercury has been hitting the snooze button in your 9th House of foreign cultures and entrepreneurship for the last few weeks, but today he’s waking up from his slumber and getting back to the tasks at hand. Ideas that once seemed too far-fetched or plain crazy could suddenly be simple as pie, and people are sure to notice your genius coming through, so don’t hold anything back right now because the world is waiting to hear from you, and from the look of things you’ve got a lot to say.

Get out there and see where the road takes you; you could wind up with a nice pot of gold at the end, no rainbow required.

Pisces
Pisces

Money matters may have been more than a little complicated lately, Pisces, and it looks like they might have roped in at least one other person, requiring you to deal with more financial issues than you’d probably prefer.

This is thanks to the fact that messenger Mercury has been hitting the snooze button in retrograde cycle for the last three weeks as he moved backwards through your intense 8th House of lump sums and other people’s money; this sector of your chart deals with things like inheritances, taxes, bonuses, etc, but rarely the regular money you earn such as a salary paycheck, so this is why it looks like someone else has probably been involved in your money matters, even if they don’t really know it.

Fortunately, things are about to get straightened out for good as Mercury wakes up from his sleep and starts moving forward again. You can breathe a sigh of relief, Pisces; happier skies are on the horizon.
