The key to getting through a Mercury retrograde this year is to follow your intuition. If it feels right, it probably is right. Small but significant Pluto is also visiting hardworking Capricorn this year. It goes retrograde between late April and early October, then ends the year direct.

This is earth-shattering news, for it is the first time Jupiter has lit this part of your chart since November through December If your birthday falls on March 6 or 7, this new moon will be speaking directly to you.
You are likely to hear superb news.
The same is true if you have Pisces, Scorpio, or Cancer rising at 16 degrees, plus or minus five days, or the natal moon or a natal planet in one of those three signs and degree, plus or minus five degrees.
I have huge news for you, but first, I have to discuss Venus and Mercury with you briefly, for both are making news this month.

Not only does Venus rule your eighth house of money owed to you and is a house that also rules money you owe others , but Venus has been transiting this house as well.

Venus also rules your solar third house, and you may have found that contracts were slow to be drawn up, or that writing or broadcasting projects were taking more time to complete than you had hoped. Thank goodness this phase is almost over.
I should mention that Venus rules products and services that are for women, so if you have a new product or service geared for women, it would not be wise to unveil them to the market when Venus is retrograde in the first half of November. Also, in your own personal life, hold back on ordering radical changes to your looks, such as, having Botox, a face-lift, dental cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery, cutting your hair in a radically different way, or making a radical shift in color.
Men, if you have a beard and want to shave it off, wait. Mercury typically retrogrades every 12 weeks, but as luck would have it, he will start his nap on the same day that Venus will go direct—November 16—and stay retrograde in your solar tenth career sector until December 6.
This will bring delays, problems with shipments, and other confusion in regard to your projects. If you have a product or service that is vital to launch, especially if your work is related to high tech, software or app development, publishing, broadcasting, web services, artificial or augmented reality, or other work in the digital realm, or in travel, shipping, or courier services, you will need to hold back and launch after December 6.

You may get a major promotion or receive a generous offer for a top job from a competitive company.
If you are self-employed, you may be given enviable publicity, or you may bring in a prestigious new client. It is also possible you will win an industry award.
In social media, your followers will increase noticeably. This coming year may well work out to be your biggest career year you ever experienced. Sagittarius is an international sign, so your work seems to have worldwide application.

It goes retrograde between late April and early October, then ends the year direct.
