Libra (September 22nd to October 21st)
It’s time to embrace a new “normal.” One sign of these times is the Mercury retro-grade that kicks in on Thursday.  A retrograde planet appears to move backward from the Earth’s perspective, which may require extra energy and adjustment on your part.  For your sign, this Mercury retrograde could play tricks with your work routines, your payment schedule or your route to work. Unfortunately, some of these tricks could stick, prompting you to come up with unfamiliar solutions. Fortunately, these solutions will be good things, ultimately, but it will require patience. Avoid difficulty by not letting your emotions get the best of you in this age of readjustment. Ranting and staying angry will only cloud your judgment and delay corrections you need to make now.
