Regarding goals and personal ambitions, Mercury's retrograde phase, along with other stubborn influences, suggests progress could come to a halt. However, this can bring just the chance you need to rethink your plans. Such delays can expose weaknesses that might not otherwise show up. Regarding romance, someone with a jealous streak could try to jeopardize a new relationship. Don't allow it! Turbulent influences could keep you on your toes, so it's important to take time out to relax.
