Steel yourself for delays and setbacks that could feel maddening in the moment once your ruling planet, communicator Mercury, begins its retrograde on October 13, moving backward through your sixth house of daily routine and wellness until October 27. While you would prefer not to have to slow down, this period can present the opportunity to go back to the drawing board on everyday to-dos that were left unfinished or unresolved.
You might also find you’re apt to pick up a wellness routine that previously served you well.
And around October 16, the new moon falls in your fifth house of romance, setting the stage for pleasure and fun if you’re willing to go with the flow. Being spontaneous with loved ones can make for sweet memories.
