Oh, 2020. At the very least, things are never boring. And this week, things are going to get weird! On the 25th, Mercury retrograde meets the sun marking the halfway point in the communication planet’s backwards journey. Though we’re still dealing with technological glitches, MIA friendships and awkward conversations, this aspect brings momentary clarity to a murky situation. Don’t take it for granted. Then on the 27th, Mercury retrograde dips back into Libra and we have no choice but to revisit a polite (but difficult) conversation that began at the end of September. Luckily on the same day, sweet Venus also returns home to Libra. With these two planets in our sophisticated, diplomatic air sign, we can make something beautiful out of even the most harrowing situation—no wonder powerful women like Beyoncé and Jennifer Hudson have those placements!
Finally, on the 31st, there’s a full moon in Taurus that sets us up for a Halloween unlike any other. Though Taurus full moons usually bring comfort to an otherwise dark time, this lunation is conjunct Uranus—planet of shock and awe. Expect the unexpected. This day is all about strange encounters and nervous tension. How can we break the norm without breaking the rules?
