So here we go off into Mercury Retrograde on Halloween!
No need to panic. Just be aware of a few things. Mercury rules our thought process and communication. When it is in retrograde it can feel as if we are not clear or able to focus well. We tend to forget things or in our haste to get something done quickly, we miss important details. A lot has been written about Mercury Retrograde, and much of it is full of scare tactics and hard do and don’t lists.
As much as I appreciate the new interest in Astrology, lots of people who don’t really understand it can make it sound quite awful. Don’t be overwhelmed by all the wannabe astrologer- bloggers. Please don’t perpetuate that sort of info by sharing those blogs and silly memes full of fear and causing others to be stressed about it. It’s not that complex. It’s simply a time to slow down. Finish up projects rather than start new ones. Take a breath before blurting out something you may not truly mean. THINK before you speak or act. Kind of a good rule of thumb normally, right? So yeah, it’s not that complex-there’s just a bit more emphasis on it for the next several weeks (through December 8th).
Things in your life can reach amazing conclusions during this time so you can move on to other tasks or projects, or deepen relationships. Reach out to old friends you haven’t talked to in a while-reconnect with family and catch up. Try to avoid making big decisions or purchase unless you’ve already done the research and digging prior to the retrograde period and know what you want. You’ll be fine then. Save receipts. Again, the reason for that is simple. During this period if we feel rushed to make decisions we can be lacking information.
One thing is true, we do tend to have more mechanical and electrical malfunctions during this time so this is a great time to back up your computer and update your phone, etc. and as you’ve probably heard a thousand times, double check your appointment times (I do see a lot of clients run late during retrogrades) and if you’re traveling, make it as comfortable as you can. Bring a book to read or work to catch up on in case of flight delays, or listen to meditations and take it easy-don’t let traffic or miscommunication frustrate you. It all works out in the end.
This retrograde is in Scorpio and can be perfect for getting into deep conversations, uncovering secrets, digging into a complicated project that needs an overhaul, and letting others know just how much they mean to you. Keep it simple and honest and continue to live your life just as you do. You’ll be just fine. I’m planning on having a spectacular week as I celebrate my birthday (on the 28th) and my favorite holiday of the year! Have a super spooky, safe and fun Halloween!!!!!
Aries (March 21-April 20) Venus moves into Sagittarius sending you on quite an exciting adventure with a special someone (or possibly dropping a new crush right into your life). Let yourself experience the most soulful and emotionally intense relationships now. You’re learning to let go and lean into a new way of expressing yourself creatively and emotionally.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) Loved ones are ready to hear what you have to say and share from their heart. Words may not be enough so be patient and don’t assume you know what they mean. Take the time to show your closest mates how much they mean to you. Single Tauruses will be super focused on relationships. Consider meeting that co-worker’s friend they keep telling you about. It’s Halloween…magic is in the air!
Gemini (May 21-June 20) You’re ready to pack your bags and go but the boss seems to have other plans for your life.Although you take your work seriously, you still deserve to have a personal life and it’s time to set the boundaries with anyone who thinks differently. If you can get away even for a day or two, do it. Until your message sinks in, you’ll have to take the freedom where you can.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) Turn on the charm-things are hot hot hot in your romance department! A sizzling connection that you had long forgotten about suddenly resurfaces and whether you’re single or attached, this can rock your world. Keep it in perspective as they’re not likely to be your one and only…once Mercury turns direct you’ll see them in a totally different light. But enjoy the flirts and the reminder that you’ve still got it.
Leo (July 23-August 22) You’re feeling pretty good, Leo, as your passion project (or super hot relationship) takes an adventurous turn. You’ll may be distracted with to do lists and home projects, but do your best to balance chores with some spontaneous fun. Hit a few Halloween parties where you can get out and be seen-compliments are coming at you from everywhere. Enjoy!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) Your imagination is off the chain as Mercury retrogrades in your house of communication and learning. You may be obsessed with ghost stories and want to learn about things that seem to push your spiritual boundaries. But remember, Mercury is your ruling planet so be sure to stay calm, cool and collected as a flurry of emails and phone calls has you scrambling to keep up.
Libra (September 23-October 22) Money’s on your mind as you look for ways to improve your cash flow. Selling some items you are no longer attached to can net some extra cash. If you’re looking for a seasonal part time job, reapply to any place you previously worked that you might like to go back to or some place close to home. You’ll have some exceptionally good luck with that. Ask the boss for extra hours or a project that you know you’ll have fun with or launch that side hustle you’ve been thinking about for a while now.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) With Mercury in your sign, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to be in the limelight, however what you’ll probably want more than anything is to retreat-so make sure you’re replenishing your spiritual side as well as the physical. Be clear when it comes to working with others as you may be giving mixed signals without realizing it. But you’ll be able to smooth any confusion over quickly as long as you don’t say too much. Let your more mysterious nature rule this week.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Venus in your sign brings an optimistic light to your love life. And you suck at keeping secrets so this may be a time when you blurt out your new relationship or newly single status. Either way, you’re going to be ready to let others hear what’s been going on with you. And vice versa. Something you’ve been suspecting is actually happening and you’ll get all the deets by the weekend-and you’ll have plenty to talk about for a while.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Your tribe is calling and you’re ready to join in the excitement. Super influential people are being dropped in your path now and reconnecting with one of them from a while back can net some incredible ideas and potential. Whether it’s a friendship that turns into romance or a business partnership that is budding-it’s an inspiring matchup. Don’t hold back-the possibilities are endless.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Halloween mysteries are afoot in your workplace. What is going on? Who’s doing what to who? Or is it whom? Ugh so much to think about. But here’s the deal. Most of it probably has nothing to do with you. Avoid the gossip and concern-let it go. And if by any chance it IS about you, let it go. See what I did there? Everything will clear up by next week and you’ll see how much info you were actually missing.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) There’s a lot going on for you right now as far as what you believe, what you think you should believe, where you came from spiritually, religiously, and what you are experiencing in your life now. You’ll really benefit from digging into books on Law of Attraction or improving your intuition. Speaking of intuition, you’ll need to listen closely to it as there is a possibility you could get blindsided by a sob story. Trust yourself if you feel this person is not being truthful.
