Libra the Scales (Sept. 22-Oct. 22): The probability is high that you will discover some error made in the past that must be rectified fairly soon. It may be as simple as finding a bill that was left unpaid. Or it could be a little more complicated.
For All Signs: We have the eclipsed full moon in Libra on the 18th. The eclipse aspects the Uranus/Pluto square, which has been ongoing since 2011. The combination suggests major emphasis on power struggles in the world and also individually. It also happens that Mercury is turning retrograde in Scorpio on Monday the 21st. Taken all together, this augurs global crises coming to a head (eclipse) and hopefully no decisive moves (Mercury). Unfortunately, there are those in the world who insist on taking initiatives, even though wisdom defies it. So there will either be multiple stupid moves in the world for the sake of claiming power or we will experience major tension over the next four weeks while issues hang in the balance. I vote for the latter of two evils. Mercury turns direct on Nov 10.
Aries: Mercury is retrograding in the territory of taxes, debt, and joint resources. You will likely experience a need to review financial history. Some may be hesitating over whether or not to become sexually involved with a new lover. The answer is to evaluate.
Taurus: Mercury is retrograding in the territory of significant relationships, contracts and clientele. These areas may be challenging right now because it is difficult to make decisions or finalize activities. Have patience with yourself and everyone else. It is temporary.
Gemini: You may find that your diet and exercise program are on hold. You have a desire to improve your everyday environment. Before you make big purchases, organize and sort closets, records and files. Then you can see your space and define what you truly need.
Cancer: Mercury is turning retrograde in the territory that rules children, creative efforts and love life. Anything on your radar that is related to these territories is subject to rethinking. Avoid the temptation to pursue a previous love interest.
Leo: The area of focus is related to property, family and issues of security. You are likely reworking things in one of these territories. Family members may be erratic, making it difficult to conclude open agendas. At the extreme, an elderly family member's life may be hanging by a thread.
Virgo: The Mercury retrograde focus is specifically on communications, neighbors, siblings and others who are in your daily environment. Concentrate as much as possible on clear communications. Double check what you think you heard.
Scorpio: Give attention to the lead paragraph. Mercury is turning retrograde in your sign and will be more likely to affect your daily affairs than many of the other signs. Don't even try to finalize anything while a retrograding Mercury is with you. It is possible that you may even reverse decisions which you have recently made.
Sagittarius: Memories from your life history may surface for examination at this time. It is possible you may have a greater than normal need to give attention to your inner self. For that reason, plans may not work out so well in your outer life. Don't allow old fears to contaminate the present.
Capricorn: You are likely to find yourself thinking a lot about old friends and may want to get in touch with one or two of them. This is a time for nostalgia and reminiscence. Others are thinking about you, too, but you are a sign with more initiative. Pick up the telephone or send an email.
Aquarius: You are probably thinking twice about an action that sounded good in the beginning. Mercury has altered directions in the house of career and life direction. This is really more of a tweaked change than a larger life change. Now is the time to research the best possible choices, but don't take action until you are certain.
Pisces: Mercury is changing directions in the area that deals with education, publishing, travel, public speaking, the law and philosophy. Therefore any of these activities are subject to shifts, changes, or sudden deceleration due to lack of decision. Maybe the right solution just is not available yet.
