Weekly Astrological Forecast for October 12 through October 18, 2020

October 12 through October 18, 2020

Mercury will turn retrograde in Scorpio on Tuesday, so we'll need to be alert and keep on our toes! Interestingly enough, it will resume forward motion on election day in the US (November 3) which could manifest problems in people turning out, election machines not working and early ballots being lost. So much for timing! Even without the retrograde preceding the election by three weeks, it is sure to be an interesting time, full of surprises! The Libra new Moon on Friday will set the stage for two weeks of new beginnings, and on a personal note, redirect us if we've lost sight of our current goals. this is also a strong lunation for relationships and the possibility to create new ones, rebalance current ones and embrace new potentials. We'll need to practice extra caution over the weekend as the Moon travels through Scorpio and has a tendency to create an illusion or throw us off balance, so let's be as mindful as possible during this scattered week!
