Your Horoscope: August 31-September 6, 2016
By Denise Guzzardo
Mercury went retrograde yesterday and remains in that space until September 22. We all know the drill. Back up your computer, check and double check voicemail and emails, flights and reservations. Take plenty of time to get from point A to point B and watch out for fender benders. Mercury influences travel and communication. However; not all bad things arrive with Mercury retrograde. Many times items that you’ve tried to sell with no bites, such as houses and cars, will have the right buyer arrive to enjoy what you’ve outgrown. So utilize this time frame to your advantage and be cautious of the little frustrations along the way. Enjoy!
