Daily Astrology 10/18/2019


“You read and write and sing and experience, thinking that one day these things will build the character you admire to live as. You love and lose and bleed best you can, to the extreme, hoping that one day the world will read you like the poem you want to be.”

Charlotte Eriksson

We are officially in the pre-shadow of Mercury Retrograde that begins October 31st. For those born with Mercury Retrograde in your natal chart, these next two weeks leading up to the actual retrograde will be bumpy and somewhat difficult. You may notice that you’re clumsier than usual or blurt things out that were probably better left unsaid. What many experience during the actual retrograde period, you’ll experience during the two weeks prior and two weeks after Mercury backtracks in our sky. During the official period of retrograde, you may find yourself withdrawing from the world a bit more than usual, digging deep within to learn more about yourself and your place in the world. Creativity is highlighted during this time as well.

Today, we continue with a feeling of superficiality, but it’s incredibly important to stick with your processes and familiar ways of doing things. With Mercury slowing down in its orbit, we may be feeling the effects of this Moon, as Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo. You may feel assertive or even aggressive during this period, but you’re urged to make meaningful connections and deepen your understanding of yourself. Figuring out others is also called for, especially in the context of teams, groups, and “tribes.” All of this superficial energy reaches a crescendo this evening that may bring out disruptive outbursts throughout the night and into tomorrow morning.

Tomorrow is another story.
