Your Weekly Horoscope Wants You to Tie Off Loose Ends Before Mercury Retrograde Is Over

Your horoscope for the week of May 8 to 14 is says springtime is still blooming and the final week of Mercury retrograde is upon us. Before this strange and frustrating journey comes to an end, take this opportunity to tie off loose ends and process the insight this dizzying experience has left you with.

Since April 21, Mercury—our cosmic messenger planet—has spun backward through the fields of Taurus. Mercury will finally reach stillness on May 14 (at 11:17 p.m. ET, if you’re already counting down the hours). During this retrograde, you were forced review and revise your plans, especially concerning themes that Taurus rules over, like money, wealth, loyalty and material possessions. And although this backwards tailspin can leave you feeling confused and out-of-sorts, this upcoming week has just enough positive energy to keep you going. In fact, it may be the week that changes everything for the better. Focus on taking a new approach regarding your plans and physical world and the universe’ll reward you for it.

Although Mercury’s backslide will bring headaches, delays and challenges, remember that the universe is not punishing you, but encouraging you to take a new path toward achieving your goals. Take this time to revise how they’re communicating with others and pushing their endeavors forward. And if you find yourself feeling more anxiety-ridden than usual this week, keep in mind that karma from your past is still being dealt with. If unfinished business continues to arise and your exes and old friends keep popping up out of the woodwork, that’s only because you’re ready to either pick up where you left off or move on for good.

Here’s what you can expect from the upcoming week, according to your sun and/or rising sign (and seriously, you’re missing out if you don’t read these horoscopes for your rising sign):

Aries

This week, messages are important and could bring happiness.

The week begins on Sunday, May 7, with Venus in Cancer and your house of family making a quincunx with Pluto in Aquarius. Aries, you could feel like a member of the family is trying to influence you. And this might not be the first time. But instead of correcting the person or battling it out, recognize that they’re doing this because their own life feels out of control. Today, practicing patience and understanding with a family member is beneficial.

On Tuesday, May 9, the sun in Taurus conjoins Uranus in your house of money. You might be very excited about a new business idea or moneymaking plan. You’re ready to jump in with both feet. When you’re ready to move forward, you’re like a speeding bullet breaking the sound barrier. Aries, you can put this energy to good use. You can get more done on this project in a single day than most people could in a month. Use your enthusiasm to move forward now.

Taurus

This week, you’re inspired to do something adventurous.

The week begins on Sunday, May 7, with Venus in Cancer and your house of communication making a quincunx with Pluto in Aquarius. Messages could get all fouled up today. Texts filled with emoji aren’t as clear as actual words. Taurus, you and a friend could miss each other when you misinterpret something basic like the time or place. Before you set out to meet someone at a restaurant, mall, or concert venue, make sure that you have all the arrangements straight. Today, if you want to make a clear connection, do it by phone.

On Tuesday, May 9, the sun in Taurus (happy birthday!) conjoins Uranus in your house of personal expression. It’s the perfect time of year to do something different, and that might start with changing the physical you. Taurus, it’s possible you are spending more time taking care of your body. You might get some new clothes and start wearing hats, earrings, or rings on your fingers. This is a good time to sparkle and shine.

You might consider buying a video course that’s expensive enough to put a dent in your wallet.

On Tuesday, May 9, the sun in Taurus conjoins Uranus in your house of spirituality. Gemini, you might look at your mindfulness and meditation practices and change things up. You could be tempted outside because the weather is changing. The days are filled with sunshine and the evenings are warmer, so you might practice praying or meditating outside.

Leo

This week, you’re showing off your talents.

Today is a good day to put some art out into the world.

On Tuesday, May 9, the sun in Taurus conjoins Uranus in your house of career. Today, you could get a big career opportunity that comes completely out of the blue.
