Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
It is true that Mercury retrograde brings lots of frustrations because postponements, cancellations, delays, and misunderstandings will often crop up. We have to be more deliberate during these phases, because we all tend to rush and at the same time become more forgetful. Leaving your retirement financial investment statement open on your desk when you are suddenly called to a meeting is not good—soon the entire department will have a copy of it due to someone’s prying eyes. Hitting the reply all button on your email can bring an embarrassing situation when someone on that email should never have seen your frank response. You get the idea.
Keep in mind that if you need a new computer, smartphone, TV, automobile, electronic game or table, or any other electronic item or machine with moving parts, avoid doing so with Mercury retrograde. You will likely regret making that purchase later—it will not deliver the joy you anticipate it will when you get it. Buy your item in the first half of October or wait until the end of November. In America, we have Black Friday on November 29 and Cyber Monday on December 2 (some countries have followed America’s lead). Both days will offer great prices on a wide variety of items—one of the products may be exactly what you hoped to find. Mercury will have concluded the retrograde, so you will have an open road to choose a new electronic.
Now I need to discuss a difficult new moon, due on Sunday, October 27, and influential until November 8. Your chart is complex, and I have to be careful not to overstate the problems that might come up at this new moon. Many Aquarians have been writing to me on Twitter (my favorite social media platform, @AstrologyZone, verified) and on Instagram (also @AstrologyZone, verified, because there are too many Susan Millers) and on Facebook (Susan Miller’s Astrology Zone). You have been telling me how hard it has been to find a new job.
The new moon of October 27 would usually be your best point in the year to find a high-level position, a better one than you had before. However, this new moon will be under siege by your ruling planet Uranus, the planet of all things unpredictable. Out of the blue, something seems to go wrong that you will need to fix. You won’t have any warning that this is coming—because the troublemaking planet is your ruler, it may have a stronger impact.
