An exciting development with a personal project propels you to action. Slow to avoid accidents and breakage. Untangle a knot before it gets worse.
Make a great connection with someone influential. Focus on shared finances over the next two days. Draw upon hidden resources. Verify news from a second source.
Take action on a profitable opportunity for long-term benefits (perhaps not immediately apparent). Extra assignments could delay fun or travel. Resist the urge to splurge.
Practice your arts, rather than exhibiting, while Venus is retrograde (until April 15). Don't be tempted to buy flashy stuff you don't need. Love, money and beauty could seem hidden. People may feel unloved or unappreciated. Show extra kindness. Reach a turning point with this Full Moon. One road seems blocked, while another beckons. It's much easier to ride the horse in the direction it's going. One door closes as another opens. Begin a transformation with this New Moon. Possibilities ignite and inspire action.

The smallest planet in the Solar System, Mercury's closest to the Sun and completes an orbit every 88 days.
Mercury's retrograde lasts about three weeks, and occurs three times a year. Mercury's the planet that rules over communication, intellect, education, commerce and transportation. Retrograde effects include slowing, blocking, jamming and breakdowns. Listening and reviewing gets more important, as the message can become garbled, lost or delayed.
Mercury's the ruling planet for both Gemini and Virgo, so people born under these signs can be more affected by Mercury Retrograde.
