Mercury finally turns direct this week, but unfortunately he'll run into serious trouble with some other planets! See how you can handle the energy here...
Monday, January 25: Mercury Direct
On Monday, Mercury will begin to regulate his orbit after three weeks in retrograde. But before you break into a dance and think you've got a green light to move forward in communication matters, you might want to reconsider...
Saturday, January 30: Mercury conjunct Pluto; Venus sextile Neptune
Sunday, January 31: Mercury square Uranus
On Saturday Mercury will conjunct Pluto, and on Sunday, he'll square off with Uranus. There's no easy dialogue or negotiation with this energy at play. Mercury is barely on his feet again when he gets knocked down by two of the heaviest hitting planets in the sky. Conversations will be intense but also overly chaotic.
Avoid falling into the trap of thinking that you have to get it all figured out this week, or even worse, that you have to sign on the dotted line. If you do, you might later realize that you were manipulated into agreeing to something that you didn't fully understand. Or, you might change your mind next week when clarity truly returns. Wait it out!
Romantically, as long as you avoid heavy conversations with your lover, things will look bright. On Saturday, Venus and Neptune will be at a perfect angle to one another, supporting soul-mate love and creative inspiration.
