Aquarius 20 Jan - 18 Feb
The second Mercury retrograde phase of 2016 begins today with Murphy of Murphy's Law fame walking up to your door as we speak, suitcase in hand as he comes to stay for the next three weeks. Turning retrograde in your home and family sector Murphy is setting up camp in your home, but you can turn him from an unwelcome houseguest to a saviour if you use this as an opportunity to connect, make up for lost time and to give the past and unsaid words a voice. Murphy will be watching to see what you're sweeping under the carpet and while you're out will be checking the closet for skeletons.
As she leaves your communication sector Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships has done all that she can to give you, your heart and your relationships a voice and while she leaves it up to you to keep the communication lines open, she's also leaving you with plenty of support. In a year where the undercurrents in play across both the personal and professional relationship fronts are flowing more smoothly, communication is essential. Continue to give your heart a voice, while letting conversations and words flow authentically.
On a day when you're likely to be happy to cruise in life's slow lane, with a chance to daydream today's guilty secret, this is something that will have benefits across many aspects of your life. We are taught to think that if we're not constantly busy we're not being productive, but can you imagine the inventions would never have seen the light of day if the dreamers of the past didn't take the time to simply let their thoughts wonder. Steer your thoughts and imagination towards the things that inspire and motivate you.
