Return to the Past
It won't be easy to make a plan this week as Mercury, the communication planet, turns retrograde in intense Scorpio on October 21. But this doesn't mean you shouldn't invest in your goals and dreams, especially with the Sun entering passionate Scorpio on October 22! Later in the week, you get plenty of support and inspiration when the Sun trines spiritual Neptune on October 25.
October 21: Mercury turns retrograde
Are you ready to move on? Not so fast! As the communication planet goes retrograde in intense Scorpio, much of what you thought was complete still needs your attention. It's time to take care of unfinished business -- until you do, there'll be no moving forward! Make the most of this transit by returning to previous conversations and rechecking your plans. Fortunately, you have the savvy powers of a detective and can get to the bottom of almost anything! On the other hand, obsession is a hallmark of Mercury's retrograde movement in Scorpio. Figure out what you need to let go of so you don't become stuck in a situation that's not good for you. Mercury turns direct on November 10.
