For the last week or so, Mercury retrograde in your secrets zone has dragged you—hard—by forcing you to face up to what you really believe about sex, debt, and spirituality. If there’s anything you’ve been mulling over subconsciously but were afraid to admit to yourself, it’s time to own it. The good news is that after Mercury direct on May 3, your game plan for implementing those Mercury retrograde lessons is crystal clear, especially when Mercury aligns with Uranus, the planet of long-term vision, on the 10th. That same day, an incisive Scorpio full moon cuts through any remaining bullshit. Once Mercury slides into your expansion sector on the 15th, you’ll be ready to speak out about the things you’ve learned, either via writing or in person. The Gemini new moon on the 25th gives your career a serious boost, so if you do decide to go public with your epiphanies, all eyes will be on you.
