Libra (September 22nd to October 21st)
I know it seems as if only dark clouds could roll in with Mercury going retrograde kicking off the week after a major lunar eclipse, but there’s a silver lining to all of this…and it could start now. Eclipses are like the best part of booster shots. (I know about many of the horror stories with booster shots. But I’m talking about what happens for MOST people.) At first, you could feel a bit woozy and you may feel like you’re coming down with the actual thing you’ve been inoculated against. Then you achieve greater immunity. This last eclipse was to boost your ability to create more and more win-win scenarios. It helps build up your resistance to ending up like a loser because you are out of touch with what you need to win. The Mercury retro is to help you review what your needs are, especially in moving head financially or ca-reer-wise.
