Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

Not only is this Friday Valentine’s Day, but it’s also a full moon. Of course, a full moon brings its own charm and romance, but this one could bring a lot more—in unexpected ways. First, remember: chatty Mercury is also retrograde now, meaning the planet appears to be moving backwards from the Earth’s perspective. Expect glitches in communication and travel, the arenas of life that Mercury oversees. Last week, we talked about being on the lookout for group communication problems. This week’s communication problems could be with individuals you’re close to. Second, don’t let the charm of Friday’s full moon blind you; keep an eye on work obligations. This week’s Leo full moon shines a light on anything you’ve left undone in the past two weeks.  Don’t completely relax until the weekend.
