Our moon is firmly ensconced in the zodiac sign of Capricorn. The energies around this transit tend to affect people's emotions. Make efforts to not go to extremes during the Capricorn moon. Bring your words and thoughts back to logic rather than emotion. Mercury goes retrograde today at 1:20 PM. When Mercury is in retrograde, it appears to move backward in it's traverse across the sky. This is a time to be especially careful with communications and anything mechanical. Be slow to speak, avoid (if possible) committing to contracts (or at least double check terms), and pay attention to anything mechanical that may malfunction (computers, home appliances, automobiles, etc.) Mercury will be in retrograde until May 22, so be attentive to this time and the affects of its energies.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries, the Capricorn moon today has you moving through tasks quickly. Try to finish any outstanding projects before the retrograde Mercury comes in this afternoon. If possible, take the afternoon off and focus on spiritual explorations such as meditation, or scheduling a retreat. Avoid engaging in long-distance travel today if possible. Wear pink to attune to spirituality.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus, Mercury going retrograde has you a little out of sorts, particularly in completion of work assignments. Try to compensate by being open to doing things in a more old-fashioned way that avoids to much high-tech applications. Socially you may feel like people are "not available" today. Take it in stride and enjoy your own company. Wear butter yellow to enhance creativity.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini, you may feel that the Capricorn moon is playing havoc with your emotions today. Stand back and be an observer rather than a participator. You will keep you emotional balance and obtain some insight to those around you. A good day to focus on financial planning and projects that require a more logical mind than an emotional mind. Wear navy blue to keep focused.
Cancer (June 21-July22)
Cancer, while Mercury in retrograde is confusing others, you are more in-tune with your psychic side today. A good day to focus on creative projects such a writing and arts. As the afternoon winds down, you will feel inspired to explore a new location. Take the time to discover restaurants and museums. Wear rainbow colors today to channel the Light spectrum.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Leo, as Capricorn's energy and Mercury's retrograde are throwing off mechanical things around you, remember to draw power from you natural, in-born talents to overcome obstacles today. In the work environment, you may find that your natural abilities as a performer serve you well today when invited to speak to the group when a presentation malfunctions. Don't stress, just be a Leo and you will succeed. Wear white to bring insight to those around you.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Virgo, you are continuing to feel like keeping a focus on learning. Seek out people in your world who could serve as mentors to you. As the planet Mercury is in retrograde today, keep your focus on one-on-one vocal communications, rather than relying on technology such as e-mail. Watch for an offer to participate in a new work project. Accept it as part of your learning process and you will succeed. Wear gold jewelry today to shine.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libra, if you want to succeed today, focus on "simple" rather than "ornate" or "complex." Though the Capricorn moon has you feeling ambitious, Mercury's influence could prove a challenge in others around you. To avoid conflicts, and disappointing co-workers or clients, follow a schedule book for this day closely. If it isn't "on the schedule," put it off for another day. Wear white to attune to encourage mental illumination in those around you.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio, your word today is "careful." A day where mental stimulation and tasks are preferred over physical tasks. If you must work with your hands, take extra-precautions to avoid injury as the influence of Mercury in retrograde could induce malfunctions of equipment, or cause others to be careless. This evening, enjoy a good meal with the family, and stay at home. Wear bright orange and yellow today for safety.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sagittarius, the Capricorn moon is a source of energy for you today. A good day to focus on business projects. Work to resolve conflicts in communications in the early part of the day. As Mercury goes retrograde you may feel like withdrawing and having a break. Avoid public transportation today if possible. Wear blue to succeed.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Capricorn, the Capricorn moon is always your friend. You are "winning" today, and others sense your optimism. Let yourself take the lead, knowing that others will follow. In home life, share your thoughts and express your emotions. Sometimes people need to hear that you love them. Wear pink to feel your heart's expression.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius, it seems that today you may be challenged a bit by Mercury going retrograde. Avoid delays by leaving home early and let yourself take extra time in the evening to complete projects. Don't rush through this day, though Capricorn may make you feel like you are behind schedule. Pay attention to electronic devices so that you don't forget to do back-ups and save files. Wear black to keep grounded and focused.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces, let today's complex transits be a source of power for you today, rather than a detriment. If Mercury is in retrograde, make sure to speak more, express more, and just do everything "more." You will make an impression that no technology can block. The Capricorn moon has you feeling energized, so put your energy into the parts of life where you feel blocked today. A strong emphasis on contracts and negotiations are highlighted for today. Wear neon colors today to keep the focus on your message.
