Retrograde Check-In

Holiday Mathis on

With almost two weeks left of the Mercury retrograde, it's a good time to remember that as sophisticated as we may be, we are still animals using words that only scratch the surface of what we are communicating. Messages behind the words are often concealed from others (and from ourselves!) in the name of social grace and order.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Because you listen and try to understand the other person's point of view, arguments can bring you closer together. The relationship gets better because you know each other better.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You love security as much as anyone, and yet, today, you're feeling restless and bold enough to give some of that up for a thrill, some solid entertainment or a chance at the big prize.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You've been slowly getting to know someone for a while now. Yet, when you think about this person, there are still more questions than answers. It's a good place to be. Curiosity is just what the relationship needs.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). While you may be having a deeply moving experience of joy, there is part of you that cannot fully accept and revel in this unless you know that another person is in it with you. Is it too early to reveal your feelings?

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You've been known to be overcome by fits of fatalism, though you're stronger now. You may still have that thought, every once in a while, that things won't go your way again. But you'll battle the idea and win.


VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The proverb suggests, "Pride goeth before a fall." You can avoid the fall by checking the pride. Carefully estimate the elements and humbly assess your ability to navigate them.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Caring too much, doing too much and giving too much knocks you off your game. Balance is always a stronger position. Whatever you can do to move toward balance will be a move toward strength.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A loving person is attuned to your feelings and responsive to your needs. That's the baseline for what to expect from your inner circle. If that line is not being toed, then it's something to either address or move on from.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). There is no such thing as a "casual invitation" today. Oh, the opportunity may be delivered with nonchalance, but you can be certain that it's as significant as anything altering the course of destiny.
