Retrograde activity will be at its maximum extent for the year after the 27th, with 60 per cent of the planets in retrograde motion. Like last month, learn patience, patience, patience. Generally, these retrograde periods are not life threatening, just annoying and frustrating. But understanding what’s going on is a big help in dealing with this.
This retrograde of Mercury (from the 27th to October 18) will be stronger in its effect than the previous ones this year. This is because there are many other planets retrograde with him. If Mercury is retrograde by himself, or with just one or two other planets, that is one thing. But when many planets are retrograde it is much stronger. So be more careful in your communications. Double-check emails before pressing ‘send’. Allow more time to get from one place to another. A customer service call that should take 5 or 10 minutes can go on for hours – and sometimes days pass until the issue is resolved.
The headline this month is love and romance, Aries. Your 7th house of love is the strongest in the Horoscope. It is strong quantitatively as well as qualitatively. So, from the 22nd onwards you will be in a yearly love and social peak. (You will probably feel this even before the 22nd, as Mars moves into your 7th house on the 15th.)
You are more proactive in love this month. You’re seeking it out. Singles are not playing games. If they like someone that person will know. You are forward and direct. You will tend to be more popular as well, as you seem supportive of those you’re involved with. Singles will have many romantic opportunities. While these don’t seem to lead to serious relationships or marriage, you can enjoy them for what they are. The area of friendships also seems active and happy.
Health needs keeping an eye on after the 23rd. Overall health is excellent, however; this is a short-term issue caused by the short-term planets. But make sure you rest more. Athletic performance will probably not be at its peak. This is just a function of energy levels. Enhance your health through hip massage and massage of the kidney reflexes (see the reflexology chart in the yearly report). Work to maintain harmony with the spouse, partner or current love and friends. Good health for you is about good social health. Problems here can impact on your physical health.
A very happy romantic and financial opportunity comes on the 5th and 6th. Be careful of overspending on the 29th and 30th.
