Expect delays in home renovations, broken appliances, and issues with contracts. Use your quick wit to think outside the box in the meanwhile for brilliant solutions to problems. If you need to hire a contractor to get the job done in your house, make sure they are highly trustworthy. I know you would do the renovations and fixes all by yourself if you could. You can’t do it all! Well not all the time.

Pisces: Mercury will go Retrograde in your 3rd house that is ruled by Mercury, making this Retrograde extra Retrogrady! You may see some communication issues with your siblings and some possible issues with travel. Get your car tuned up before this time.

Take care talking with your siblings now. If issues arise don't allow outbursts of emotion to get the best of you. You can also see long lost siblings contact you out of the blue!
