March 19-25, 2012: You could find this a week of potential surprises coming at you from all directions. Now some people will say that's a bad thing, but surprises can be good as well. Even in the midst of a Mercury retrograde, communications can be fun and absolutely delightful. Just don't make long-lasting decisions at this time because you can change your mind several times before you finally settle on the
right one. On the other hand, if you're looking for love, this can be a time for romantic beginnings! Watch the diet, and enjoy the renewed energy and overall feel-good about you that's awakening all of your senses!
Seems like everything is in a state of flux, doesn't it, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn? All this new-found energy the rest of the world is having can be somewhat startling if it's coming from directions you haven't expected. Don't make the mistake of assuming all change is permanent. Mercury retrograde is still here, and you'll need to be patient and adopt a wait and see attitude. Even with this new pace of life you're noticing right now, remember to slow down and savor passionate moments. It is, after all, a different kind of energy that can allow you to slow down and appreciate your life and this beautiful world!
Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, the New Moon on Thursday may be a bit disconcerting. Avoid trying to hold on to rigid thinking. This isn't the time for such things. On Tuesday morning, you may feel a bit out of sorts. It should pass quickly. Avoid arguments with anyone around you who seems to be looking for arguments. Be flexible, as you know you can be, and enjoy what life brings next. Cut others some slack if tempers rise, and avoid the foray. Don't make it your issue. Everyone has an off day here and there at times. For the most part, the week should really be quite nice for you. -- Michelle Young
