How inconvenient of little Mercury to perform an about-turn five days into a new year. Just as life is returning to normal all manner of problems due to communication failures start to surface. And then, of course, there is travel, which could prove particularly trying this week. While it may be tempting to try to put wrongs to rights immediately, you are better waiting until emotions have settled down and the full picture can be appreciated. Keep a close eye on spending and should an appliance break down or people turn out to be unable to rectify a problem, remember that necessity is the mother of invention.
