word about Mercury Retrogrades:
They are short, only about 21
days. This one starts Oct. 5 and ends Oct. 26. They bring misunderstanding and confusion, which is why you need to make sure you are
correctly understood, and that you understand others correctly. It’s
a wonderful time for working out the bugs and clarifying matters.
Computers may act up, too.
Unexpected relationship issues are brought into focus this month.
Some things may appear to be more important than they actually are.
Look for the positive, and try to find the humor in the situation,
and the outcomes will be satisfying. It’s a good time to share your
views with others; you’re more eloquent than usual.
The emphasis is on introspection this month. The Mercury
retrograde will probably produce confusing but illuminating dreams,
so a dream journal would be a good idea for you. Mars in your money
house may bring some good financial opportunities.
Hold on to your temper, Sag! Mars crossing your sun may make you
more impatient than usual. Good physical exercise will help blow off
steam and help you keep your cool. There may be some good
opportunities for romance, or some nice perks at work.
New beginnings in career matters are likely. Be prepared to
clarify communications on the job as well as with friends. It’s a
good time to make plans for career development such as training, and
discuss your future with your supervisors.
Tons of intellectual stimulation comes your way, possibly by
reading, travel, or education. If you have any legal matters
pending, the Mercury retrograde may delay or confuse the issues. If
possible, delay taking action until after the 26th.
Pleasant times with relationships for you, with Venus in your
relationship house. You may be drawn to get in better touch with your
emotions and feeling nature, and these will be felt more intensely
than usual. This may result in transformation in your values and a
deeper sense of yourself.
The changes that have been taking place within you will be
reflected in your relationships. Communications with your partners
at work or at home may be difficult while Mercury is retrograde.
After Oct. 26 you should be in a better place to make informed
decisions and plans.
Expansion in the home is a keynote for you at this time.
Resources will be there for improvements and renovation, or you may
have someone move into your home. Take the time to examine how you do
things at work and at home, and streamline your processes. It’s a
good time for a physical, too.
Time spent on beautifying your home as well as having fun will be
well spent this month. Relationships may be stressful, with Mars in
your relationship house, and with Mercury retrograde you will need to
be careful communicating with loved ones, including children.
Your home is also emphasized this month. If you’re planning on
renovations it may be best to start after the 26th,
when Mercury is direct once more. Mars in your work/health sector
will give you the energy you need to accomplish more than usual. It’s
a very good time for physical activity, both work and exercise.
Interactions with friends, relatives, and co-workers are
important this month. Pay close attention to how you communicate with
them. Weaknesses in communications will become evident so you can
change them. In the long run, this will simplify and improve your day
to day life and make it run more smoothly.
It’s time to take a good look at your finances. Understanding
what you truly value will let you re-allocate resources to put your
money where your heart is. It’s a good month for pampering yourself
with a spa day or shopping trip. You’ll find bargains that are
comfortable and attractive!
