Your Horoscope For This Week — Feb 08 2015

Illustrated by Lynnie Zulu.
With Mercury retrograde in Aquarius since January 21, life has been harder to explain than that New Kids On the Block reunion tour and as off-point as the Super Bowl dance moves of Katy Perry’s left shark. But, things are looking up this week, stargazers. On Wednesday, the messenger planet does a 180, flipping back into direct motion and unscrambling signals. The coast is clearing, making it safe to price out computers, mobile gadgets, cars, and other technical toys. One caveat: The shadow of Mercury retrograde will linger until March 4, so waiting a little longer to buy might be wise. Valentine’s Day will be a reverse mullet, if you will: party in the front, business in the back. So, save the more serious declarations of love for after sunset.
