Happy Birthday for Monday May 9th, 2022:
You are practical, classic, persistent and patient. You love art, especially music. You definitely enjoy the finer things in life. It’s going to be slower this year. You will also become more focused on partnerships and your closest relationships. Take the time to discover the relationships that benefit you.
(March 21 – April 19)
Mercury will be in retrograde for the next month, which will bring transportation delays and messed up communication with others. The delivery service will be spotty or confused. Very likely, old friends will come back into your life. Cope as best you can. Tonight: Guarding children.
(April 20 – May 20)
With Mercury in retrograde for the next month, expect delays in financial matters. Checks in the mail will be late. Financial transactions can be delayed or suffer from errors and confused communication. However, old business is easily dealt with. Tonight: be clear.
(May 21 – June 20)
Holy Moly! Your ruler Mercury will be retrograde for the next month! Expect confused communications along with delays and canceled appointments. You could lose items or forget to bring something – all small (but frustrating) details. Be brave! Tonight: confusion.
(June 21 – July 22)
For the next month, Mercury will be retrograde in a “hidden” part of your chart. This means that while you might suffer from silly bugs and stupid lags, you’ll actually be able to do excellent past research. Bonus! Tonight: Check your money and possessions.
(July 23 – August 22)
Old friends from the past will appear in your life over the next four to six weeks. (This could already be happening.) It’s good to have history with others. Plus, it’s fun to talk about the bad old days and swap lies. Happy reconnecting. Tonight: Rest.
(23 August – 22 September)
Mercury will be in retrograde for the next month and this will take place at the top of your chart, meaning you may hear from parents you have not been in contact with. You will also encounter bosses from your past and authority figures, including teachers. Tonight: Relax.
(23 Sep – 22 Oct)
There may be travel delays, cancellations and issues with all aspects of travel over the next four to six weeks. Likewise, delays and confusion related to medical and legal matters may occur. But the good news is that you can easily study and research the past. Tonight: Listen carefully.
(23 Oct – 21 Nov)
Mercury will be in retrograde for the next month, which means silly mistakes and delays. However, this “regression” will facilitate any endeavor or work that involves digging in the past and exiting old deals. You will do a lot of bureaucracy! (Taxes, debt, common property.) Tonight: Trust no one.
(Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Over the next six weeks, you’ll encounter ex-partners and old friends from your past. Most likely, for some of you, this is already happening. Depending on how things have gone in the past, this may or may not be good news. (Look good because living well is the best revenge.) Tonight: Be open.
(Dec 22 – Jan 19)
The next six weeks could be frustrating as Mercury retrograde will take its toll on your job. Expect canceled appointments, messed up communications, delays and broken devices. The good news, however, is that that same influence will help you do old business. Tonight: Check your finances.
(January 20th to February 18th)
Old flames from the past are likely to reappear in your world in some way. (“Boris!” “Natascha!”) This could be exciting or harrowing, depending on how the relationship ended. Over the next month, old issues with your children could also come up again. Tonight: Honesty counts.
(February 19 – March 20)
Family reunions and contact with family members you haven’t seen or heard from in a while could happen in the next four to six weeks. During the same window of time, you will find it easy to do old family business, including home repairs. Tonight: Check on your pets.
