Happy Mercury-turns-direct day!
 
To all of you who have been patiently waiting for Mercury to turn direct, this Monday is a lucky day for you! Mercury is finally turning direct on the 23rd. This is a great period to finally get things going, after the past contemplative 3 weeks. With a jolt of blessing from Sun in Gemini, feel free to engage in a new relationship, start a new project, or sign a new contract. Jupiter in Virgo will also help you to set things straight at work. If you have a new business plan in mind, use this week to plan things ahead, while juggling with other responsibilities at once.
 
As for our love life, Venus in Gemini on the 25th will bring a light, flirty vibe in your relationship, while Mars retrograde in Scorpio on the 28th would reduce your chances of engaging in arguments and/or any sexual activity. Couples will tend to take things lightly and singles may be more interested in flirting compared to casual relationship. Desire may be suppressed as a part of the casualty, but this will not affect your relationship, as Mercury direct would help you talk things out to preserve your relationship.
 
Enjoy this breezy break while it lasts! 
 
Aries
Ace of Swords
Life without challenge will not fulfill your thirst as an adventurous being. There are always new things to try and new worlds to see. Don’t be afraid to take their hands and let them take you to the equator. Get ready. 
 
Taurus
Nine of Wands
The retrospective time has passed. Now is the time to put that decision into a concrete plan. Would it be a yes or a no? Either way, you’ll learn something new eventually. Don’t be afraid to welcome your mistakes. 

Gemini
The Tower


You sought to balance between love and career, but it seems to me that there’s only one space for one winner. Life consists of many sacrifices. Would this be your chance to find your way through one? 
 
Cancer
Two of Cups
Happiness can be found in the smallest thing for you. Even the smile of lost children brings out the best in you. Can you do me a favour? Don’t ever change. Be that shining star in the midst of rain. 
 
Leo
Princess of Wands
There’s not enough answer for all the questions in the world, as answers are reserved for the wanderers. May the light brighten your eyes in this dark night. But if it doesn’t, do embrace the black sky. 
 
Virgo
Three of Cups
No one is truly lost when they are showered with love and affection. Love will always help you connect the dots. Let it be your guide when the stars turn dark. Let it show you where to look before you close your eyes. 
 
Libra
The Aeon
The path to find your true self can be destructive and exhilarating. But destruction is necessary to tear down those egocentric walls. Can you find the patience to wait until the flower blooms again? 
 
Scorpio
Knight of Wands
Your emotional roller coaster has finally reached its retrospective state, while a stable life sits right in front of you. Would you like for it to stop? “Not now”, the Universe said to me, “Not until you learn to be stable at heart.” 
 
Sagittarius
The Hanged Man
The long-lost opportunity has finally come back to your lap like a happy Labrador. One chance before it goes back to sleep. This is the time to answer your prayer. Will you be able to seize it in time? 

Capricorn
Adjustment
Would you be able to make a decision that is fair for both sides? Don’t worry, life is fair when it isn’t fair. One must experience the balance of the good and the evil in one lifetime to achieve such just. 

Aquarius
Princess of Swords
Rest your tired swords, my dear. Find this opportunity to sit and count your pennies. Have you been making too much sacrifice without getting any in return? Let this be your chance to earn your worth. 
 
Pisces
Five of Wands
As your days are imbued with optimism, more and more great opportunities are coming your way. Life has started to look a little bit clearer and brighter. Pick up any phone call and seize it!
