Weekly horoscopes: April 25–May 1
On April 28, all the gremlins come out to play. This is when Mercury turns retrograde and its reverse direction will release a Pandora's box worth of glitches, debacles and fiascos into your day-to-day life. These could manifest as automobile breakdowns, computer malfunctions or your coffeemaker suddenly calling it quits. It's bound to be a headache, but as long as you take it all in stride and keep your sense of humor handy, then you'll be OK. But Mercury retrogrades aren't always all bad. Sometimes they can bring the most unlikely breaks if you keep your ear to the ground. Who knows? You might wind up inheriting a better car, getting a price break on a new computer or being given a fresh coffeemaker. Stranger things have been known to happen. Mercury comes out of retrograde on May 22.
