Retrograde Blues

The Mercury retrograde has us assessing life in alternative ways. Are you dwelling in what’s missing rather than what’s present? This is only natural, but beware; it’s a time suck. As Pulitzer Prize winner William J. Broad suggested, “the crux … is that the vast majority of the mass of the universe seems to be missing.”

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You know you’re in a good place when you can listen to the good news of your “frienemy” without becoming the least bit jealous. Well, maybe the least bit. But not overly so!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Love has been around in so many incarnations that it would be wrong to call it “your love” or “his love” or “her love.” Don’t worry about where it came from or who will get it next; just keep recycling.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’ve a ways to go, but don’t wait until you’ve reached your goal to be happy. People who are successful may or may not be happy, but people who are happy are always successful.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’re likely to set a conversational precedent today, so be careful. Remember that if someone is gossiping to you, he or she will gossip  about you, as well. Think about this before you talk to a friend about another friend.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Habits are especially hard to break when you are under a lot of stress. Being under a lot of stress is a habit in and of itself. What can you do to reduce your burden? A Taurus can help.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’re not feeling regretful, but you do wonder what might have happened had you made a different choice. Such thinking is not a waste of time. The alternate realities you dream up will inform your next move.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Everywhere you look, there are signs telling you what to do, how to be and what to think. It’s a bit overbearing. You’ll respond by giving minimal instruction to yourself or anyone else. You prize freedom.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The project that is already in motion needs to stay in motion. Don’t let things get too quiet. Add fuel to the fire, and do whatever else is necessary to keep up the momentum.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You used to try to pump yourself with statements of your greatness. Now you go the opposite direction, disqualifying yourself from social competition. As a result, people see you as confident and are intrigued.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Be careful pursuing what’s “free.” All the time you put into these pursuits may be costlier than money. You’ll give new consideration to the way you value things.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s a rebellious part of your nature that does not wish to conform to the norms of mainstream social groups. You’re still trying to find where you fit in. The Internet will be most helpful in this matter.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re due for some fun. Fun doesn’t have to be costly — or does it? A roller coaster has different kinds of risks than a night out on the town, but in both cases, the unknown factors are what make for an exciting time.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (June 28). You’ll discover new aptitudes this year. Next month brings a physical peak. Compete; play; and train. August brings a fresh ambition. Relationships that help you move toward it will be especially appealing. September blends the interest of family members. October will be the most romantic month. Aquarius and Taurus adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 9, 46, 18, 20 and 1.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: Bonds will be formed over a shared sensation. Pain is the most universal sensation. Pleasure is a distant second. TAURUS: Dreamers and doers will help each other. You belong to both categories and will switch back and forth as needed. GEMINI: Togetherness is being with someone who understands you. CANCER: You’d like closure on a situation. You can get this within yourself, even if the other person does not participate. LEO: With Venus moving into your realm, passions catch on like California wildfire. VIRGO: In some way, you have put another person before your own health and well-being, but you’ll correct the situation now. LIBRA: The one who values kindness over beauty embodies both. SCORPIO: Realizing that many aspects of a good relationship cannot be controlled, you’ll loosen your grip. SAGITTARIUS: You’ll find wisdom in places that are notoriously shallow. CAPRICORN: Arguments are easily blown out of proportion, but sometimes it’s fun to make mountains out of molehills. AQUARIUS: You let down your guard and say how you really feel, which turns out to be the best thing you could do for a relationship. PISCES: Love is irrational. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you can’t use logic to get over your ex.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: The Cancer sun and Pisces moon highlight couples of this heavenly mix, a perfect spiritual blend. These are the deep water signs who have lived lifetimes together before they meet again in this one. Their communication together is effortless, even with the current Mercury retrograde situation. Can the rest of the world understand this connection? They blissfully couldn’t care less.
