Mercury officially turns retrograde once again on October 13th.
We also have the Sun moving through the intellectual and upbeat sign of Libra! This casts some much-needed light on the retrograde-heavy energy we are moving through with Mars, Chiron, Uranus, and Neptune.
Let’s dive into more about October 5th – 11th, 2020…astrology wise!
The Moon is Waning!
The Moon is waning this week which means it’s not the best time to start new projects, and creativity won’t be very high. You can spend time clearing out the goals that you’ve been putting energy into that are not yielding results, or that you’re no longer excited about.
Is there some habit that has been using up your precious time and money that you’ve picked up over the last month? This week is a great window to observe these habits and see which ones aren’t contributing positively to your overall energy.
What About Love this Week?
Venus, the planet of love and romance, is still moving through nurturing Virgo. Being patient with someone you care for can pay off this week. However, as we are now in the pre-shadow of Mercury retrograde, it may not be the best time to kick off new relationships.
We may be starting to seek out people who subconsciously remind of us of past partners, but do not be fooled by fleeting fantasies that echo who you used to be.
You may start to feel old flames starting to pique your interest, but just because they may cross your mind, this does not mean they are your soul mate. This might be a cue that you can take to look at how to heal your relationship with yourself instead.
