Scorpio (October 22nd to November 21st)
When Mercury retrogrades, it’s often a confusing time for communication and transportation. Mercury completes its “year” in 88 days, and then starts another year. From the Earth’s perspective, this fresh start looks like Mercury’s moving backwards, since we’re still moving forward with our year. You, specifically, may find this retrograde challenging as you communicate with young people. It’s a good idea to scale back the amount you want to say, as you may be attempting to say too much at once. Take the necessary steps to tap into your own creativity and feel fully confident when you speak.
