Mercury goes retrogarde Thursday, April 28 2016

Mercury goes retrograde April 28 and goes direct May 22 in the sign of Taurus.
The caution is to be careful signing papers and making agreements, especially regarding everyday money. 


Taurus is the patron planet of everyday money and food. This means food contracts or agreements should be double and triple checked for accuracy. However, luxury items may be on sale, but be sure to check for flaws. Mercury is the patron planet of communication, especially between siblings which could be delayed until May 22. This is because Taurus energy is careful, deliberate and slow. This Mercury retrograde cycle needs patience.

This retrograde should be relatively benign because of the stable nature of Taurus, but documents related to everyday money may be delayed. The sign most affected would be Taurus, of course. Scorpio may experience delays in financial situations because of careful (too careful?) inspection of them. Leo and Aquarius, could be frustrated because of repeated demands for accounting of figures, something they do not enjoy.

Fellow earth signs of Virgo and Capricorn may be asked to double-check documents and they will be able to do this easily, and may benefit from a small windfall. Cancer and Pisces may have opportunities for small money experiences. But... if it involves documents, do your best to sign after Mercury goes direct May 22.

Aries and Gemini are somewhat neutral, but the usual care should be taken with the written word and documents. Libra and Sagittarius experience financial things not going as expected and need to adjust; this is minor.

If relationships are not going smoothly, it will be most likely because of money.

Remember Mars is also retrograde, so plans, projects and travel could be delayed, perhaps because of a mix-up for payment for tickets.

Sun goes into Taurus Aprl 19, 2016

Happy Birthday Taurus!

It will be Taurus time until May 20. Taurus is more energized and a little more assertive. Now is the time for you to begin your projects, although Mars is retrograde.

Scorpio may experience stubborn control issues over money resulting in tense relationships. Leo may be annoyed by stubborn, repeated requests to restrain spending. Aquarius experiences attempted restraint regarding money.

Virgo and Capricorn have a nice time regarding money, relationships and practical affairs.

Cancer and Pisces experience this Taurus time of opportunities for successful practical and financial affairs, if you keep your expenditures in check.

Aries and Gemini are neutral. Libra and Sagittarius adjust to things not going as expected, probably less available money.

Remember, though, with Mars retrograde projects may begin well, but slow down or need to be tweaked until Mars goes direct June 29. During Taurus time, tweaks are most likely trimming the budget.

April 17. 2016 Sunday Mars goes retrograde

Mars goes retrograde Sunday. You were forewarned of this in the April 2016 prediction article published March 28. Mars goes direct June 29, 2016.

Mars symbolizes men, mechanical things and your projects. When it goes retrograde there is a good possibly these malfunction.

Mechanical thinks include your car, lawn mower and other things that are run by a motor. They may have irritating glitches. If you get the mechanical part of the object inspected first, it could save you some time. A for instance is when I was working at Staples a long time ago, their copier malfunctioned. The tech man inspected all the electrical components, replacing some expensive parts. Quietly, I tried to mention the mechanical parts could be looked at. After many hours it turned out to be the little piece of plastic the paper fed over coming out of the machine. After he replaced it, the copier worked perfectly. 

Men include the men in your life, whether father, husband, boyfriend, brother or friend. If relationships are not going as smoothly as you would like, it could be the man in your life is not feeling well and is irritable, or he is full of himself and is demanding. This requires cooperation and understanding. It will pass.

When Mars goes retrograde, it seems time slows down and your projects are delayed. This is the time for you to analyze your projects to see if the “mechanics” of the project are put together properly in a Virgo-type proper sequence.

For those of you who know your chart, look to the house Mars rules which has Aries on the cusp. The affairs of that house could reveal any problem related to Mars, but the affect would be the house Mars lives in. For instance, if you have Aries on the cusp of your sixth house of work and Mars lives in the 8th house of money, your work projects could slow or need attention, but the details would be finances or investments related to work.

GEOMAGNETIC STORM April 6 and 7 2016

GEOMAGNETIC STORM: Earlier today, April 7th, Earth passed through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet, plunging our planet into a region of interplanetary space filled with negative polarity magnetic fields.  The result: a G1-class geomagnetic storm is in progress. High-latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras after nightfall on April 7-8. Visit for more information.

How will this affect you?
The storm is passing through the astrological sign of Aries. This should be very strong for Aries because the Sun, Venus, Uranus and the Moon are all in Aries. It is late today (6 pm ET) so this will still be strong tomorrow, April 8. The difficult square between Aries and Capricorn is still active and these two signs, plus Cancer and Libra are under leadership stress. Aries may be strongly initiating action, which means Libra experiences either opposition or people being independent and non-cooperative. However, Sagittarius is experiencing opportunities for good money, love and whatever you call stability and security, with Leo able to stabilize and bring creativity to the situation. This is good. Mercury is in the sign of Taurus, meaning Taurus can help slow down the impulsivity asking others to see the financials. This article is posted at Patty’s blog at .
