Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
For some time, you’ve had quite a build-up of energy in your home sector, and after February 16, with the entry of Mars in the same area, you will be quite motivated to get started on a home-related plan. If you like where you are living now, there is ample evidence that you are passionate about decorating, and rarely have your ideas been this unique and special. However, it could be that you want to move to a new house and may have already investigated locations during late December or January. If not, you will have a second chance to find out all that is available in February and March. There is a good possibility you will find something special. There is a little wrinkle in your search for a new place to live though—I will explain.
Mercury will turn retrograde from February 16 to March 9 and begin acting like Dennis the Menace. At the same time, Mercury’s brother Mars will enter your home sector from February 16 to March 30, so you may decide to go back to an earlier plan. You should not buy electronics while Mercury is retrograde—not even while Mercury is close to turning retrograde or direct. For that reason, shop for electronic items in early February or next month in late March. March 29 would be a sterling day to do so.
The Mercury retrograde period from February 16 to March 9 would be ideal for making repairs, doing maintenance, cleaning, or painting. Buy expensive purchases after March 9—start on March 11, a great day—or buy electronic items on March 29 when Mercury will be working with Uranus to bring unexpected delights.
If you find an apartment or house that you like, be sure to ask probing questions before you commit. With Mercury retrograde, you may discover that the current occupant has not given you full disclosure about things you’ll have to fix once you move in. It would be a mistake to sign a lease or close on a house during Mercury retrograde, so do all you can to avoid that period. If you are in the market for a mortgage, need to refinance your present mortgage, or want a home improvement loan, go to several lenders—February 21 would be your day to be thrilled with the answer you receive.
