Libra 23 Sep - 23 Oct
Mercury, the communication planet,
will be retrograde, appearing to move
backwards when viewed from earth, from
31 October - 20 November. When Mercury
is retrograde it’s usually prudent to hold-your
-horses and, wherever possible, take a less-is-more,
wait-and-see approach to what is going on. So, avoid
the tendency to cut corners, be economical with the truth or
skip the small print. This is a good time to review, revise, reassess and if necessary, move the goalposts. When Mercury is retrograde, take a step back so as to take two steps forward later.
Since Mercury will be retrograde in Scorpio, one of the money zones of your solar chart, be careful with important communications, written and verbal, especially those that have financial or commercial implications. This isn’t the time to try to read between the lines or to rely on verbal agreements or make promises you may not be able to keep. Slow down, take your time and avoid signing along the dotted line until you are good and ready and have done your homework. Don’t be pressured into making big financial commitments or purchases. If in doubt, be prepared to ask for more time and double check your facts and figures before putting your cards on the table.
