Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Also, don’t sign papers now. Some of my friends race to sign before the date Mercury turns retrograde (this time, October 13), but Mercury has already been slowing down the pace of life for a while, and that slow pace will only intensify now. Wait to sign until the second half of November, to get far away from the day Mercury turns direct.
Mercury will be retrograde in your social eleventh house, bringing friends to you that you’ve not heard from in a long time. More concerning to me is when Mercury will be retrograde in Libra from October 27 to November 3, when career-oriented plans will require attention to detail. A major high-profile project could bring problems, so don’t take your eyes off it.
Just when you have your hands full with home or family-related questions that will need to be solved in the start of the month, your career will demand your prime attention at the new moon October 16 in Libra at 24 degrees, appearing in your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement.
This new moon has an angry crowd of planets storming the gate. The Sun and new moon in Libra will fall in your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement, and usually this would be good news for your career advancement. It might be, but this new moon comes with obstacles on a scale I have never seen. Saturn and Pluto will be in harsh square (90 degrees) to the Sun and new moon, so regarding Saturn’s influence, you may find progress at work to be tough and, at times, overwhelming. You may be taking on too much work, so pace yourself and build in a few necessary breaks.
