With Uranus, now in Taurus, earth signs will feel the impact over the coming seven years. Uranus is an odd archetype in that it represents the unexpected. That includes surprises (good and bad), innovation, rebellion and basically anything that upsets the norm. However, since it is a slow-moving outer planet, the unexpected events are typically set off by another planet that triggers the surprise. It is wise to keep an eye on significant outer planets to see how they might trigger an event. The outer planets deliver long-term and revolutionary themes. Consider Uranus’ last seven year transit in Aries, where we witnessed the rise of new technologies that touch each of us and have changed the landscape of human interaction. That innovation was long, but it was revolutionary nonetheless. We will never be the same in how we communicate going forward. That is representative of a slow moving form of revolution. The faster moving inner planets are capable of triggering a sudden change. While the outer planets typically deliver their influence over a longer period of time, the inner planets strike with immediacy. Each of us will have an area of our lives that will be impacted by this transit.

To shake things up on the more immediate level we see Mercury, now retrograding back through the sign of Pisces. Mercury will spend about two months in this mutable water sign. The subjects associated with Pisces include mysticism, spirituality, the arts and religion. With that in mind we can expect to receive confusing messages about those topics or be mislead. Mercury, while in retrograde, often complicates things as words get jumbled, intentions are misread, and in this particular instance, we see the added influence of Neptune. Since Neptune, by archetype, is capable of illusion and delusion, we can see how this combination might easily complicate the facts even more than they already are. With so much talk of fake news, this does seem to spell out a rather confusing time for all of us. Discretion is the secret ingredient in this matter. Intuition is especially powerful in Pisces and if something doesn’t feel right this is not the time to pursue it. Be wary of contracts and agreements that come to your attention under this influence. All challenging experiences hold the potential for personal growth. If we can regard this as a positive outcome we can benefit from such a period of time. Where does this Mercury retrograde impact you?

You may see things begin to move this week. A transition may be forthcoming that allows you to view your situation through a different lens. Avoid being impulsive until much later in the month. Money may be the motivator and it may be through work that you get it. Education and travel are prominent.
You may be immersed in discussions with business partners or coworkers. The discussions may be uncertain and a bit vague so try and avoid aggressing to anything long-term or permanent. Mercury is in retrograde until the end of the month and facts might be altered or confusing. Great potential exists for progress but wait a while.
Expect to be involved in resolving a mix-up at work this week, especially if you work for a large organization. A missed communication may be the source of the problems and it would be wise to set the record straight and clear yourself of any liability. Useful advice may come from significant partner.
Conversations may be a bit inflated this week so be aware especially regarding travel and education. If you are making plans you might be wise to wait until the end of the month. You could benefit from pursuing new employment options but again wait until the end of the month for more clarity.
You may witness some considerable confusion especially if dealing with elderly relatives or large organizations. If you are conducting negotiations in either of those arenas be careful of mis-truths and ambiguity. You will do better towards the end of the month, despite your desire to move sooner. Take the long view and see what appears later.
Discussions with your partner or close friend may be confusing so hold off on making any bold statements that you can’t retract. Your creative dilemma continues to unfold, but you may find that education is the secret ingredient and worth pursuing. Reserve your opinions until later in the month when your ruling planet, Mercury stations direct.
Home and family continue to be a bit of a challenge as you try and forge the right direction forward there. Topics about your wellness may also surface but you should be wary of mis-information with Mercury in retrograde there. A clever solution to a topic involving elderly relatives may appear but wait until month’s end to address.
Children may occupy much of your attention this week. Conversations may be a bit confusing so pause before you jump to any conclusions or decisions. You may be motivated to discuss family plans and home renovations with your partner, but you would do better to wait until the end of the month before moving on a topic.
Watch what you say this week especially regarding topics of the home or family. If you act impulsively or with authority you could face an unanticipated backlash. Money topics are looming in the future and you would be wise to pay attention to investments towards the end of the month. Exercise is a good antidote to worry.
You may be motivated to create this week. Ideas that come to you are worth recording in some form. You may feel emboldened to blaze a new trail creatively and you would be wise to follow. Progress may be slow and methodical but as long as you are responsible you may see the coming shift in your life goals.
You may be speculating on an investment or financial transaction this week. While you may be on the brink of turning a corner on a project be careful to avoid committing to anything long term until later in the month. Business associates may provide valuable insight. Scrutinize any and all financial agreements before moving on them.
While the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune are all in Pisces you may be feeling especially creative and imaginative. While you may feel as if you are in your element, be wary of any major changes or agreements during this time. Examine all the facts closely and look for hidden or misstated facts. All may not be as it appears.
