Yes, Another Mercury Retrograde is Coming: Here’s Your Horoscope for the Week of October 12

Weekly Horoscope

Things seem to pile up one after another lately and, unfortunately, this week’s major astrological event doesn’t make it any better. We’re talking about the dreaded Mercury Retrograde that’s set to throw you off-balance once again.

Happening on October 14, the Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio will make you feel a little more intense, dramatic, and suspicious around your loved ones and coworkers. Be careful about being distrusting of others because now is not the time to push people away and isolate yourself. After all, with Mercury being the planet of communication, we should be more considerate of how we speak. Be wary of miscommunications, indecisions, and impatience at this time.

More importantly, keep an eye on your gadgets; Mercury Retrograde has an annoying tendency to make appliances and electronic devices break down oh so suddenly which is honestly the last thing you need right now.

Here’s how this week’s Retrograde will affect you:

Aries (March 20 to April 19)

There is lack of harmony in your life as you feel that you’ve been prioritizing others more than yourself, and it’s leaving you running on empty. It’s okay to put yourself first sometimes and pursue the dreams you’ve set for yourself—not what other people have set for you. Stop trying to live up to other people’s standards as well; you can’t please everyone, after all. All you’re doing is just putting unnecessary pressure unto yourself. Evaluate your motivations and see whether you’re working towards your goals because you want to or because you’re scared of what might happen if you don’t.

Taurus (April 19 – May 20) 

Ghosts of your past are holding you back from moving positively forward. You may find it difficult to heal from the damage that it has caused, but you can’t allow it to affect the way you’re living your present and where you want to be in the future. Gather all the strength within you to push past these pains and lead the life you want to lead. You’re the boss! Fight for your dreams!

Gemini (May 20 – June 21)

It’s time to breathe a sigh of relief because your hardship is coming to an end soon. Free of the weight from your shoulders, you are now feeling more inspired and motivated to work on your goals! Your head is brimming with ideas and there’s no better time than now to bring them to life. Remember to be your true, authentic self!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Be careful about being taken advantage of because not everyone you care for actually has your best interest at heart. Evaluate your relationships and whether the give-and-take is balanced for both sides. Listen to what your inner gut says; you will find the answers you are probably seeking in time. Have peace within you so that you can manifest that same energy unto your surroundings.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

Your head is brimming with ideas and you are hard at work to bring them to life! Remember though to make a plan and set concrete steps towards your end goal; otherwise, you won’t be able to make any real progress. Prioritize the things you are most passionate about, but don’t forget to take breaks too. All work and no play will burn you out. Evaluate what you are doing all this for.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Your hustle may be admirable, but remember that work isn’t everything. Take time to rest and enjoy leisure time with your loved ones so that you don’t burn out. Don’t be too much in a rush to fulfill your dreams; your impulsiveness and restlessness may only lead you to stumble and fall. Always think ahead and make concrete plans so that you can succeed. Don’t worry so much; you’ll get there in time.

Libra (September 22 – October 23)

Right now, you may be experiencing emotional blocks that are holding you back from having healthy relationships with those around you. Don’t let arguments and fights ruin what you’ve worked so hard to build. Be the bigger person and restore the peace. Listen to your inner voice and do what’s right. Allow love to flow freely around you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

You may feel that certain people or situations in your life are being unfair to you, and you’re looking for someone to blame. Instead of getting frustrated over it, try to view it in a more objective way and ask yourself what exactly is the root cause. Be honest with yourself and learn from this situation. There’s so much goodness in the world that you are choosing not to see because of all this negativity. Change your mindset and move positively forward!

Sagittarius (November 21 – December 21)

Right now, you are feeling lost as you are undecided over what to do and where to go in your life. Up to this moment, you’ve been following what other people have been expecting of you. Are you really going to sacrifice what you want just to please others? You deserve to be around people who will accept you for who you are and support you all the way.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 19)

You can’t help but feel that you are meant for something more than what you have right now. However, you must understand that you shouldn’t base your value on having the best of everything. Opportunities abound all around you and you’ll be able to see them once you stop feeling dissatisfied with where you are. Be grateful for what you have.

Aquarius (January 19 – February 18)

As you near the finish line, you must be prepared for all the challenges that may come your way. Trust that you have gained enough experience and learned from your mistakes to be able to overcome these last hurdles. Keep fighting and don’t back down! Remember all that you have achieved up to this moment to remind yourself that you are good enough to be here.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

You need to take time out of your busy work schedule to unwind and reconnect with yourself. Reevaluate your priorities and seek clarity on situations and problems you may be encountering right now. With your renewed energies, speak for the truth and fight for justice! Use your voice to help those who are silenced.
