Don't let yourself get bamboozled by all the fancy talk this week. You know a snow job when you see one, and right now, it looks like you're in the middle of a blizzard.

Thankfully, Mercury in retrograde from Feb. 6 through Feb. 28 works to your advantage because the other party is under pressure to close quickly and you aren't. This allows you to negotiate the terms that you want. Think about hiring a lawyer or financial advisor. There's a lot at stake, and you'll want an expert opinion.
