Weekly horoscopes: May 16–21
Mercury comes out of retrograde on May 22. This will be a huge relief to anyone who's been dealing with faulty merchandise, botched sales and misfired emails that wound up in the wrong person's box. Murphy's Law (the assumption that if anything can go wrong, it will) is the order of the day when the planet of everyday business is moving backwards. Although a pain-in-the-derrière, Mercury retrogrades remind us not to take anything for granted. And now that you've done that auto tune-up, home repair and computer backup, you will be more proactive in the future so that you won't be caught napping again. But Mercury retrogrades aren't all bad. They can also bring strokes of fortune too. For instance, a bureaucratic snafu made three weeks ago could yield an unexpected refund or settlement in your favor. Look for it!
