Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
You know, when they say the Devil is in the details, you might think that Lucifer is stapled to every piece of paperwork on your desk or encoded in every email. Fortunately, Mercury’s going direct this weekend, so some measure of the trickiness with everything will taper off. But that doesn’t solve feeling burdened by nearly everything and anyone. On the flip side, we have Uranus going retrograde on Wednesday. That might sound bad, but it could be a good thing for you if you take the time to break up your routines and/or engage new people in your immediate environment. Although many of y’all can’t stand small talk, you’d be surprised by how you could foster deeper connections with people if you start a convo on something. You don’t have to talk about the weather or start with the ouster of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. There’s a simpler place in between to begin.
