This week a partnership or joint venture could veer off in an unpredictable direction as Mercury reverses through your relationship zone. Or a work colleague could surprise you by making a decision that seems like a backward step. And are you being rather lazy? With Mars (your power planet) and retrograde Mercury both transiting through lackadaisical Libra, you could find your motivation is missing and your adventurous streak has gone AWOL!


You’ll experience the greatest satisfaction if you share your professional dreams with other like-minded people. Collective collaboration is the key. But you need to think long-term and be patient. Do your best to get the balance right between being creative and being thorough; between having inspirational ideas and making practical progress. Mercury is in retrograde motion until October 18, which could disrupt your daily routine or stir up an old health issue.

With Mercury (your ruling planet) in retrograde mode (until October 18) expect travel disruptions, phone frustrations and/or computer chaos that will test your limited patience.

So how can you survive Mercury retro in a reasonably sane state of mind? Make sure you back-up all your computer files; allow plenty of time to get to appointments and catch flights; check and then double-check everything; and be incredibly adaptable. Plus maintain your sense of humour! 


If you are crabby with friends or family members this week, then they will be in the mood to fight back! So do your best to be more compassionate and generous towards loved ones. Plus try to view a troubled close relationship from a much more philosophical perspective. As birthday great John Lennon observed, “We’ve got this gift of love but love is like a precious plant. You’ve got to keep watering it. You’ve got to really look after it and nurture it.”

You’re in the mood to talk, text, tweet, publish and/or podcast as the New Moon, Mercury and Mars activate your communication zone. But with Mercury retrograde, make sure you convey your message clearly and concisely, otherwise misunderstandings are likely. Love planet Venus transits into your friendship and love zone (on Thursday) so Friday, Saturday or Sunday is a good time to organise a catch-up with your bestie or a romantic rendezvous.


Does it feel as if your dreams are on hold or your finances are going backwards? This week retrograde Mercury slows things down and increases frustrations. But then lucky Venus swoops in and encourages you to pair up with a loved one and make your combined dreams come true. You’ll need to be patient though! Your motto is from birthday great John Lennon, “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” 


Stylish Librans have a passion for fashion and Wednesday’s New Moon is in your sign. So it’s the perfect week to refresh your appearance via a hot new hairstyle, a makeup makeover or a creative wardrobe revamp. But with Mercury reversing through your sign (until October 18) and Venus (your patron planet) shifting into extravagant Sagittarius, watch that impulse buys don’t burn a big hole in your budget. Remember – some of the best things in life are free!

Expect a rather intense week as the New Moon, fiery Mars and retrograde Mercury stir up inner compulsions, submerged secrets and hidden resentments. You could also become obsessed about someone from your complicated past. Smart Scorpios will learn from your mistakes, let go and then move on. Inspiration for the week is from birthday great, actress Kate Winslet. “The good and bad things are what form us as people … change makes us grow.”


When it comes to your involvement with a friend, acquaintance, colleague, client, customer, group, club or organisation, this week looks tricky as fiery Mars and retrograde Mercury stimulate your argumentative streak. So do your best to avoid aggravating others, especially from Thursday onwards when Venus transits into your sign. October 7th through until November 5th is the time to smoke the peace pipe as you socialise, compromise and sympathise.


Impulsive Mars and retrograde Mercury are disrupting your career plans and future aspirations. So Wednesday’s New Moon is the perfect time to revise, reassess and reboot. Think of creative ways that you can navigate the unpredictable Covid landscape, adapt professionally and pivot personally. Draw inspiration from birthday great, actress and activist Susan Sarandon, “I take responsibility for the ups and downs of my life, and that is very liberating.”


Aquarians often feel restless, rebellious and agitated. This week, with the planets illuminating your philosophy zone, you need to slow down and look within as you contemplate, meditate and ruminate. Negotiation planet Venus also encourages you to hold out the olive branch of peace (especially to a stressed friend or colleague). So your motto for the moment is from birthday great, music legend John Lennon. “Turn off your mind, relax and float downstream.”

Wednesday’s New Moon spotlights close relationships and trust issues. However, with Mercury stuck in retrograde mode, you could suffer from a lack of motivation, low libido or just plain exhaustion. So pace yourself Pisces and don’t take on too much. The weekend stars highlight sensual pleasures, intense negotiations and vivid dreams. But be careful you don’t blurt out something that you later regret. Think (carefully) before you open your mouth and speak!
