Mercury turns direct in Aries, your solar eleventh house, on the 23rd. Plans and projects will gradually get back on track after that, but it will be frustratingly slow at first. Be prepared to back up decisions with solid facts, not just opinion. If you’re involved in a group activity, leave the financial details to someone else who has the necessary skills and experience. You deserve a brief time-out from your hectic lifestyle. The Sun provides just that when it enters Taurus, your solar twelfth house, on the 19th. Plan a few evenings and maybe a weekend at home where you can be comfy and cozy on the couch with a good book. And look forward to more of the same in May. At least one friendship will be put to the test when values clash and heated words threaten to erupt. Step away if you see it coming, and refuse to enter into the debate. The same could occur in a dating relationship midmonth. Money may also be an issue. But you’ll also experience the joys of friendship this month, and a close pal can provide the added perspective you need to resolve difficult situations. Neptune enters Pisces, your solar tenth house, on the 4th, offering a preview of what to expect during its long transit here, which begins in earnest next year. Overall, this career influence can be a very positive one, but there will be times when you’ll feel as though you’re invisible, that everyone else gets the credit you deserve. Plan ahead because the next year will be a year when you can realize your success potential.
