Libra (September 22nd to October 21st)
You might feel different. Perhaps even a few people have noticed and haven’t been able to put their finger on what. Maybe there’s more pep in your step. Or there might be sharper sense of direction with a corresponding resolve to step forward, even if it’s baby steps. I imagine it starts humbly, though the story will vary I’m sure. Most likely, however, it started with a simple “Enough.” And I mean all kinds of enoughs: not having enough, enough of the BS, and enough of all your ambivalent feelings about it. Enough became something must happen. You know what? Providence heard you and is now moving with you. You only needed to say the word. And this Mercury retrograde is your friend, though that may sound counterintuitive. He’s there to remind you of all the things you’ve had enough of and to test your resolve. Stay committed to moving forward.
