Mercury is retrograde again this week, so you should also be aware of other transits happening this week. Venus transits Scorpio on the 29th, making a trine to Neptune in Pisces, a good transit for your creative side and socializing. Prepare yourself for innovative ideas to come to you, which may or may not be inspired by a colleague or friend.
The Sun forms a trine to Saturn in Aquarius on that same day, which is excellent for planning. It would help if you did not execute anything for the next few weeks. Again, a great time to plan and to jot down any creative ideas you may have.
You may make mountains out of molehills on the 30th when Venus in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Aquarius. It may seem catastrophic to you, for example, if there are minor financial problems. However, taking deep breaths and realizing that things aren’t as bad as they appear will help.
On October 1st, Mercury squares Pluto in Capricorn. As a result, your communication is likely to take a dark turn, and you may say things that are harshly critical or mean-spirited. Make sure you are prepared to apologize when you make a mistake.
The 2nd brings Pluto in Capricorn sextile Venus in Scorpio, a good time to find a strategy to reach any goal, no matter how large or small. So, based on your sign, how will you fare this week?
Aries – This week, you may feel nervous and anxious. You will have a difficult time overcoming the anxiety. It may lower your productivity, but you are better off surrounding yourself with positive people and practicing relaxation techniques as often as you can. The Nine of Swords tarot card comes up, which means something will keep you up at night if you don’t calm down and stick to relaxation techniques.
Taurus – While you may feel like you are working too hard this week without much reward, remind yourself that the gains will come with time. It may be a good idea to keep your mind off the situation by focusing on your hobbies or trying something related to the arts. In addition, the Seven of Pentacles comes up, which is a reminder to focus on the prize and be patient for the gains and the growth.
Gemini – Mercury in retrograde will cause you difficulty, so it isn’t a good idea to start anything new when they are retrograde. Even so, you should focus on improving a particular skill if that’s what you’d like to do. Learn a new skill or hone an existing one with these energies. The Eight of Pentacles shows that bettering a skill is a good idea at this time as well.
Cancer – In this week’s energy, collaboration and teamwork will be fruitful, as you are open to suggestions from colleagues. In addition, they suggest some ideas you might want to consider for yourself. The Three of Wands comes up for you, so you can get far with some work if you work with others and plan it with them.
Leo – Maybe you are considering some long-term goals for the new year and beyond. Because you possess a high level of creativity, you can quickly adapt to others’ suggestions. Take lots of notes, so you don’t forget anything once Mercury goes direct in a few weeks. The Magician comes up for you, which means that you are more resourceful than you think, and you can create some great things by using them.
Virgo – Due to the retrograde of your ruler, this is a difficult time for you, but you may also have difficulty communicating. The truth is that you tend to overanalyze things, but when you disagree with someone’s actions, you know when to remain silent. During this week, you may slip up and disapprove of someone. It’s going to be a challenging week with coworkers and others. Spending more time alone may be the best option. Five of Swords comes up, which means you are unfortunately likely to have conflicts with others, making you feel defeated. It is best once again to stick to being alone as much as possible.
Libra – In this week’s workweek, you’ll feel discouraged when you don’t receive the support you need from seniors and colleagues. There will be a sense that everything has to be done by you. However, what stresses you most is that you cannot communicate with them. If you get angry or frustrated, you’re prone to move away from conflict. The Eight of Swords comes up, a message to you not to fall for a victim’s way of thinking.
Scorpio – As a problem-solver, you are in a position where others will approach you for help with that, too, even during a retrograde period. Furthermore, you will contribute valuable input to meetings that will help others plan for their goals. Finally, the Ace of Swords comes up, which is a sign you will have a lot of clarity this week and some eureka moments.
Sagittarius – Take care of your mental and physical health not just this week but all month long. Having that support is essential at all times, but it’s necessary now since you’ll be facing stressful situations on both a professional and personal level. So spend time meditating, eating well, and exercising. In addition, the Four of Swords comes up, which is a sign that you need to get the rest you need so you can stay well.
Capricorn – Connecting with your spiritual side will help you cope with work-related stress. Meditating before you begin your workday will also help you reduce stress. Stress may also affect your personal life. The Hermit comes up, which is also a sign that you need to take some time to reflect on what you need and want, and that means taking time for yourself and away from others.
Aquarius – It is a good idea to take a few days off in the middle of the week to help you regroup and find some balance. Take a mental vacation by listening to your favorite music and daydreaming during that time. If not, you may feel overwhelmed by your work and other circumstances in your life. In addition, the Four of Cups comes up, which means you are at high risk for ending up apathetic if you don’t take the time you need off.
Pisces – This week, your creativity will be enhanced, so you will be able to do several things with it. You can provide creative input to colleagues regarding their work, and you can certainly apply it to your projects. By focusing on creative hobbies this week, you can reduce stress from both work and home life. The Empress comes up, which means you will need to nurture yourself to nurture others, and it is a card that represents enhanced creativity.
Other energies will impact next week, including the Libra New Moon, Pluto going direct, and Venus leaving Scorpio. So prepare for all of those, but first, get through this week!
