Dates to Watch

On October 27 the New Moon takes place as Mercury approaches Scorpio, just before Mercury appears to stop in the sky. This New Moon is directly opposing the agent of change Uranus, bringing excitement and drama. Mercury goes retrograde on October 31, creating a clash of power and drama when as it meets Venus in Scorpio.

Mercury retrograde joins the sun at the Gates to the Underworld on November 10 before the Full Moon on November 12. Invest in transformation within and without to make the best of this compelling time. It adds richness to your words, music, and other creative efforts, including relationships. Mercury begins its forward motion again on November 19, allowing you a sense of freedom.

During this Mercury retrograde, all of the usual rules apply. Here’s a quick refresher: Don’t sign contracts, don’t buy electronics, and don’t start a road trip with a simple “gas and go,” do back up computers, do change your passwords, and double-check correspondence. Communication and devices tend to go wonky too and simple mistakes can become big misunderstandings. However, thanks to the New Moon a few days before, it’s going to feel like Mercury has gone retrograde in your personal life a bit sooner than expected. The New Moon in Scorpio energy may cause impulsive and erratic behavior not only in people, but in relationships and money matters as well. So keep a tight grip on your emotions and your wallet for the next month if you don’t want to spend the entirety of your Thanksgiving performing damage control.
