Our Pledge To You


Georgia Nicols horoscopes for April 28

Moon Alert

We have the “all clear” today to do business. The Moon is in Capricorn.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Today Mercury officially goes retrograde until May 22. This particular Mercury retrograde affects your finances and cash flow. Checks in the mail will be late. (If they’re just late, you’re lucky.) But this window is an excellent time to finish old financial business, including taking care of your possessions.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Today Mercury goes retrograde in your sign until May 22. You will feel this because it will make you feel like you’re losing it. Misplaced items, forgotten papers, missed appointments, missing keys plus confused communications with others will be par for the course. Good luck!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Of course, you feel the Mercury retrograde simply because Mercury is your ruler. It goes retrograde generally three times a year and each time in a different sign. This particular Mercury retrograde will help you to research and find all the answers from the past.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

For the next month, you will be in contact with old friends and people you have not heard from in a while. (This has already started in the last few weeks, hasn’t it?) It’s nice to have history with others because it sort of puts things in perspective, in terms of appreciating your own life.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Mercury goes retrograde today until May 22 right at the top of your chart. This means that authority figures and bosses from your past might suddenly be back in your world. This can also include a parent you might not have seen for a while. “Mother?”

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

In the month ahead, travel delays might plague you. However, this Mercury retrograde will help you finish papers or a thesis or any writing project. It will also promote the study of other cultures and meeting people from different backgrounds. It might delay legal matters.

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Your focus on taxes, debt and shared property will be strong in the coming month because of Mercury retrograde. You can use this energy to wrap up old business regarding these issues, including inheritances and insurance matters. Roll up your sleeves and dig in!

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

Today Mercury officially goes retrograde in a sign that is 180 degrees opposite Scorpio. That sign is Taurus. This means that you are encountering ex-partners, ex-spouses and old friends from your past. Consider this an opportunity for closure or final clarification or understanding.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Some Mercury retrogrades are more challenging than others, depending on how they impact your particular chart. The Mercury retrograde that begins today (and lasts for about a month) will create havoc, delays, mistakes and mixed-up communications in your job or your work. Doublecheck everything.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Old flames might be back on the scene for many of you because Mercury retrograde begins today. This will tend to stir up memories of past romance, and possibly attract these people to you! This is a good time to finish an important project with children.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Every Mercury retrograde has its advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantage of this Mercury retrograde might be that relatives will be camped on your doorstep — to your chagrin. However, this retrograde will also encourage you to tackle home repairs you’ve been avoiding.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your sign will really feel this particular Mercury retrograde because it affects your communications and everything to do with transportation. Therefore, be on the defensive. If your car is dicey, get it checked. Automobile breakdowns and delays in travel are classic now. (This will last for all of May.)

If Your Birthday Is Today

Farm-to-table chef-restaurateur-author Alice Waters (1944) shares your birthday today. You are brave, dependable and an excellent negotiator. You wait to achieve your objectives because you plan for the long-term future. Finally! The year you have been waiting for because you are ready for change. Take advantage of opportunities that present themselves. Expect a major change, perhaps as significant as what occurred around 2006. It’s time to test your future!
