Leo 23 Jul - 22 Aug
The Sun will be in Scorpio until 22
November, Mercury until 9 December
and Mars from 19 November until early
January. Therefore, as 2019 comes to a
close, there is a strong planetary emphasis on
Scorpio. Mercury, the communication planet, will
be retrograde in Scorpio from 31 October - 20 November.
When Mercury is retrograde, this is not the time to cut corners, be economical with the truth or skip the fine print. This is a good time to review, revise, reassess and if necessary, move the goalposts. During this period, it would be prudent to keep an eye on electronic devices and equipment which are more likely to play up or disappear.
Since Mercury will be retrograde in Scorpio, the zone of your solar cart associated with home, family and domestic affairs, this area is likely to take up your time and attention and may be subject to communication problems, confusion and misunderstandings. Therefore, make sure to take your time and be patient and thorough in your dealings others, especially family and love ones. If you have to present information or data to others, be prepared to review and revise what you have to say.
Alternatively, it could be others who are the source of the complications and if so, make sure you’ve your facts straight before putting your cards on the table and if possible, delay showing your hand until after Mercury moves forward again from 20 November. Be extra careful with money matters during this time. Try to postpone large purchases, especially of electronic equipment and avoid rushing financial paperwork. Domestic matters may be more chaotic. If so, avoid cutting corners in your desire to get ahead.
