Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Mercury is your ruler, so you will feel Mercury retrograde more than most. If you need a new computer, smartphone, headphones, air conditioner, refrigerator, or dishwasher, buy it now, before these planets go into weak retrograde. Admittedly, Mercury retrograde is a more terrible time to buy electronics than Mars retrograde, but I would like you to avoid both. Mars in Aries is all about entrepreneurial pioneering into new and innovative territory. Act now for best results.
Why would things reach a standstill in October through early December? I feel we will be dealing with a second wave of the coronavirus. Where will that be? That depends on you. If you keep your guard up, you will not likely be affected, but those who are bored with staying home alone, wearing a mask, or washing hands and doing social distancing could make themselves vulnerable. The virus is on a mission to infect as many people as possible—there seems to be some kind of intelligence programmed into it—so the virus finds it easier to do his horrible job when we let down our guard.
Here is why I anticipate a second wave. Jupiter and Pluto have been working together most of 2020 to accomplish the spread of this virus far and wide. Pluto and Jupiter usually create financial bounty when together—this time it came in the form of unprecedented government stimulus programs. Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and Steve Jobs were born during these rare once-in-13-year conjunctions of Jupiter and Pluto.
Every planet has a variety of areas they rule, and every astrologer knows Jupiter is the planet of expansion. Fewer know Pluto not only rules behemoth multi-national companies and governments, but also viruses. This year, Jupiter and Pluto are working to spread the coronavirus. If you look back to 1918 and the Spanish Flu (which actually started in Kansas), Jupiter and Pluto were traveling tightly together, just like now, a once-in-13-year trend.
