Week of: May 20 - 26
Here's to Mercury:
"If she lives till doomsday she'll burn a week longer than the whole world."
in Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors (III.ii.97-98)
Aries: Work. School. Work. Nose to the grindstone. More work. Other Peoples' Mistakes at work. These are a few of the themes this week. You will notice that the operative phrase concentrates on a four letter word: work. So? So there is lots of it this week. Go ahead, move and make some more money. You can always blame it on Mercury.
Taurus: Now that all the Taurus birthdays are over, you will think you have taken quite the beating from the stars. Between the fierce energy of Mars and the unsettling effort of Mercury, and then, to top it all off, the Sun itself compounding and amplifying all the problems, well, with all of these elements at work, you need a vacation. Just wait until next week to rest because the stars (and odds) are still against you. Blame it on Mercury.
Gemini: The sun comes strolling on into Gemini, but with that other pesky stuff going on, it isn't too good of a Birthday Week. Doesn't mean that life isn't good this week, but there have been better days, and especially, there have been better birthdays. If you are having problems reading this or understanding what I'm trying to tell you, you can always blame it on Mercury.
Cancer: Despite the problems that other people are encountering this week, you will find your attitude is definitely lighter, you are perhaps happier, and there is hope in your life, and maybe even a spring in your step. Look out, Bubba, the stars are really stacked against you right now. Despite the "new attitude" you should be careful. Blame it on Mercury.
Leo: Well, we're done with that, the little tantrum you threw? I sure hope so because the stars are beginning their annual pilgrimage towards your sign and the Summer Party Bonanza. Don't confirm any plans just yet, though, because there are still some details which should be left up in the air. If people ask about this, just shrug and say, "Blame it on Mercury."
Virgo: The week rolls in with a whimper and you seem to be taking this Mercury thing way to seriously. Then, as life changes, it all gets better. Like, in the middle of the week as the Moon shifts into your sign. Then there is a distinct climatic change in your attitude. Of course, everyone around you will remain sour but that's just so you can blame it on Mercury.
Libra: The problem with being a Libra is that you can usually, if not always, see both sides of a difficult situation. As an example, Libra's a great when it comes to arguing both sides of problem. Often as not, the Libra doesn't need an opponent. Can be quite convenient. The problem is that all the headway you have made lately seems to be headed down the proverbial tubes. What's the answer? Blame it on Mercury.
Scorpio: Using your razor-like eye for detail (it's a metaphor, Bubba), you have uncovered some great truth, hidden deep within you own inner resources. What's that mean to real folk? You figured something out, a puzzle in your life. Or maybe it was the jigsaw puzzle with the missing piece and you found the missing piece. You are a hero this week. All that limelight -- blame it on Mercury.
Sagittarius: some of the vague rumblings and ratings which have been plaguing you for the last few months will now, thankfully enough, shut up. Doesn't mean that the problem goes away, or that the problem is solved. No, that's negative by any stretch of the imagination. But the problems are buried, if only for a little while. When they resurface, you can blame it on Mercury.
Capricorn: Unlike some other signs who are too flaky to mention, Capricorns are never going to be accused of engaging in a dream like trance for hours on end. Well, not usually, anyway. Perhaps you've been more contemplative this week, more inward directed. Maybe you've been caught staring out the window, transfixed with a minute detail in the far distance. Maybe you just didn't get enough sleep the night before. Whatever the case, you can always blame it on Mercury.
Aquarius: There always seems like there is just one Aquarius out there who is fighting against all odds, on lone character who is carrying the banner forward, trying desperately to move ahead with his or her agenda while facing insurmountable odds. Does this feel like you this week? If so, you can always blame it on Mercury.
Pisces: You know, there is some rule that says that "anything which begins well-ends badly." I don't want to sound like the eternal pessimist, but that relationship you were just entertaining, the lovely little thoughts of marriage, the little white house with a picket fence, two cats frolicking on the front lawn, well, all of that is going up in smoke this week. Doesn't mean the end of the world, just one more dashed dream. I warned you first. Blame it on Mercury.
