Recently you’ve been discovering a whole new side to your already variegated personality. During this Mercury retrograde phase you’re likely to develop your understanding further. If something turns out to be different from what you expected, don’t allow that to put any dampers on your interest or excitement.
Do you ever wonder how you’ve come to believe some of the things you believe?

The cosmos would seem to be asking, “Are you getting the message? And if you are, what are you doing with it?”
Mercury is working its way into storm phase territory. As a result, communications could start to become a little trickier; this might be especially true today, with the Moon joining an aspect pattern involving Mars, Juno, Uranus and Eris.

Fortune and success are calling your name personally, but I don’t suggest you send out a press release.

If you find any, make sure you take care of the repairs with deeds and not just with words.

What do oatmeal and feeling free in your sexual energy have in common? Apparently they’re both heart-healthy. At least, that’s one possible way of looking at today’s trine between Eros in Sagittarius and Ceres in Leo. There is a spiritual side to sex, and right now it’s in a mutually supportive relationship with the ways you take leadership in your life.
Do your best to stay visible this week. Make sure people know what you’ve been up to, and make sure they can actually see and feel your best work. Whatever you’re doing is now starting to rise above its foundations and show real results. But you must do your part, and stay available and make sure that your accomplishments are known.
