The highlight of the week is Mercury turning direct after some weeks retrograde, a smoother tone may characterize the course of affairs with less slip-ups and plans going awry. In a week or so from that date Mercury will have reached its full speed once again and things should be smoother still. Of course, Mercury does not actually slow down and back up and then move forward again, but it has the appearance of doing so in the sky because of differences in the orbits of Mercury and the Earth around the Sun. So with the “as above, so below” axiom of astrology, during those retrograde periods earthly affairs may tend to go somewhat more awry than they usually would.
So now with Mercury about to move forward again, we have a greater assurance of success and progress in our various endeavors and projects.

Sunday, Mar 17, Mercury Stationary Direct
Mercury turning direct today, after some weeks of retrograde movement, may lend to the feeling of hitting the ground running and an intense intellectual or verbal surge in affairs. While Mercury is now going forward again, it’s rather slow yet, but on an accelerating trajectory; which means that the normal course of affairs may be even more smooth in a few days. Inspired action will be strong; and as it is said, fortune favors the bold. (Sun quintile Jupiter)
Monday, Mar 18
