So how is your Mercury retrograde going so far? Mars and Pluto are also meeting up with Mercury so look out for aggravation, power plays and obstinate behavior that comes complete with mixed messages. Push all contracts aside until we come out from under this influence. How about just spending time baking cookies? Remember to add all necessary ingredients because backward spinning Mercury might account for you missing out on a key component for the recipe. Pass the sugar please. If you are attempting to return an item that you bought or get a price check for something that is suppose to be on sale-GOOD LUCK! People may not be at their most cooperative this week. Take a chill pill and look at the big picture. Life's little annoyances are nothing when compared to a REAL problem like a health issue or some other out of your control type of situation. Until next week-Be of good cheer.
