Oct - 21 Nov
With Mercury, the communication planet,
retrograde from 05 – 28 March, and a new
Moon falling on nebulous Neptune in Pisces,
the pleasure zone of your solar chart in square
to Jupiter in Sagittarius, one of the money zones
of your solar chart, this probably isn’t the time to mix
business with pleasure. Cutting corners, being economical
with the truth or taking shortcuts is likely to prove counterproductive. You also need to be careful not to overindulge or overspend in your pursuit of pleasure, romance and your favorite three letter word, fun since this could prove a little too distracting. Nevertheless, this promises to be a veryinventive and creative time, as long as you’re creative artistically and not financially or amorously.
With Mars, your traditional planetary ruler, and Uranus, in your opposite sign of Taurus, it is through your important relationships, personal and professional, that change and progress is indicated. You can't quite go it alone at the moment, even if you would rather not compromise and cooperate, teamwork is key now. Since Mars will be in Taurus until the end of March, you have to do get used to the idea of others need to be included in your plans, goals and a share of the rewards so be prepared to stand back and let others have a turn in the driving seat. It also suggests, that maybe you need to develop other methods, routes or techniques to get where want to go. However, you should avoid resorting to too much flattery or flannel because you’re likely to make things complicated if you do.
When confronted with difficulties, Scorpio has a tendency to grab the tiger by the tail, and not pussyfoot about, but that may not be so easy now. Therefore, to avoid complications now, it might be best to try to get some space or elbowroom, and if necessary, work alone, if that really is the only way to get things done. If you’re not in the mood for compromise then you’re better off working independently, otherwise frustration with lesser mortals could spill over.
