Communications enter the Twilight Zone as Mercury turns retrograde from January 11-31, 2009. Notorious for misunderstandings and misplaced paperwork, this pesky influence takes place in Aquarius and Capricorn, which can bring on computer-related snafus (when was the last time you backed up your files?), social blunders and miscommunications in business and government dealings. On the other hand, it’s a great time for gaining insights (Aquarius) about your goals (Capricorn). Personal-growth activities and humanitarian efforts are also favored. So between now and the end of January, double-check your communications, back up your computer files and envision your ideal path and how to get there.
