When Mercury goes retrograde on the 27th we will reach the maximum retrograde activity for the year – 60 per cent. This Mercury retrograde will be a lot stronger than the previous ones we’ve had, because five other planets are also retrograde, compounding the effect. So, make sure that you do everything perfectly. You won’t stop all the delays and glitches, but you will be able to minimize them.
You need to pay more attention to your health this month – especially from the 22nd onwards. Overall your health is good, but this is not one of your best periods. However, it is only short-term stress caused by the short-term planets and by late October your health and energy will return. In the meantime, enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Additionally, this month massage the hips and the kidney reflex (see our reflexology chart in the yearly health report). And, of course, make sure to maintain high energy levels. The danger of low energy – even if health is good – is that it makes a person more vulnerable to opportunistic bugs and infections.
Though health and energy could be better, the month ahead is successful. Your 10th house of career becomes ultra powerful from the 22nd onwards. So focus more on the career than on the home and family this month. The good news is that the family is supportive of your career goals – perhaps they see it as a ‘family project’. The family as a whole seems raised in status. It becomes more prominent and respected from the 15th onwards.
Your financial planet, Uranus, went retrograde last month and will remain that way for a few months. So, though earnings are happening – especially before the 22nd – they happen more slowly and with more delays and complications. This is a time for a ‘wait and see’ attitude in finance. A time for more study and research – more homework. Avoid making major purchases or investments now. If you must do these things, make sure you do rigorous due diligence.
Love is stable this month. It is not a major focus and your 7th house is empty. Only the Moon will move through there on the 1st, 2nd, 29th and 30th. Your social magnetism is strongest from the 6th to the 20th as your love planet waxes.
