Scorpio (October 22nd to November 21st)
Mercury’s preparation to move forward this week will come in handy just as Uranus readies to retrograde. I see this as an opportunity to put your wisdom and insights to practical use, especially with how you tackle ordinary problems and issues that crop up at the job or at home. Some of this appears to be about time management and taking care of business when you have scheduled time to take care of it—a simple thing that could save a lot of time if followed. But more essential than that is doing the stuff that you really find important to do rather than going through the motions or getting caught up with the chaotic swirl of other people’s demands. On the job, this could be tough, because most jobs are about other people. So give priority to those tasks that build the skillset muscles you like to flex.
