Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
I am being watchful and concerned about November’s aspects. If you have a copy of my 2021 Year Ahead Astrological Calendar and have read the notes I made on November 4, you have seen my concern. Uranus will act like a wild child, unpredictable and lashing out in all directions, but especially at the new moon and Sun in tight degree.
The full moon lunar eclipse in Taurus on November 19 won’t be easy either. For these reasons, do your research while Mercury is retrograde in early to mid-October, then get your ducks in a row so that you will be ready to make decisions, agreements, and sign papers after Mercury goes direct on October 18. Leave at least two days space after Mercury goes direct, though, as Mercury always needs a little time to regulate its orbit when changing from retrograde to direct.
A verbal agreement is considered the same as signing an agreement in astrology, and also in many laws of the land. For example, some states in the US recognize verbal agreements to be in place for one year if there are no other factors to consider.
Let’s say a client sends you a contract during Mercury retrograde. If you call your client and say, sure, you will sign the contract, but not until October 20, after Mercury has moved direct, that won’t quite work! The reason is that you have made a verbal commitment with that phone call. It is best to hold the contract and inform the client that you have sent it to your lawyer. After your lawyer has had time to go through the contract, you can show changes you want to make as you near October 18 (the date Mercury goes direct), and sign your client’s paperwork after that.
