Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
On October 21, your imaginative ideas will garner their warmest reception, for Neptune, now based in your sector of career honors, awards, and achievements will send Venus a shimmering silver beam. Venus will also be in productive conversation with Saturn in your eighth house of other people’s money, so a large check may be on the way to your mailbox soon.
Do your best to wrap up important matters early in the month, no later than October 21, since in late October, you will not want to be tangled up with Mercury in retrograde. Mercury will turn retrograde on October 31, but you will start to feel the impending slowdown earlier, as soon as October 21. The official dates of the retrograde will be October 31 to November 20.
This time, Mercury will retrograde in your workaday sector, so projects will take more time and possibly more money than you expect to complete your project. You will have to watch your budget and income closely at work, and you may find winning approvals hard to do.
Mercury retrograde might also scramble medical test results, so if you feel a particular test result sounds off, ask to have it repeated, even if you have to pay for it yourself instead of insurance. Alternatively, you may visit a second doctor for another opinion, which is always wise to do when your instinct is telling you to go the extra mile to be sure.
