For the last few weeks, as Mercury has been retrograde, all we’ve wanted is clarity. And this week we get that information. But beware: When it rains, it pours. Just like city and state election boards across the nation, each of us—on a personal level—are receiving an overwhelming influx of ideas and opinions. Quick-witted Mercury ends its retrograde (phew!) and starts moving forward in Libra, the sign of Justice itself, on the 3rd—yes, that November 3rd. And though this gets things going again, locating our lost packages and fixing our broken iPhones, we aren’t out of the woods yet! Mercury may be moving forward but it’s still moving very slowly. We have to take our time with what we now know.
On both the 1st and the 6th, Mercury squares off with steady, contemplative Saturn, an aspect found in the charts of deliberate, epic-making perfectionists like Julia Child, Lord of the Rings author JRR Tolkien as well as the series’ film director, Peter Jackson! This energy forces us to consider and reconsider everything that’s come out of the woodwork. Let’s not push ourselves. It’s time to slow down, digest what’s happened and make a plan.
(Horoscopes follow for each sign. If you know your rising sign, reading for that will provide further insight.)
