(October 23 – November 22, ’19)

 It’s time to crawl out of your shell and get back into circulation!  You’ll be feeling mentally sharp, with Mercury—your planet—in SCORPIO all month.  Inquisitive and restless, you can be highly stimulated through the exchange of ideas & information, classes, networking activities, short trips and contacts with relatives & neighbors, particularly on 10/23, 25, 27 (New Moon), 30, 11/2, 8-9, 11, 13 & 19-20.  Since Mercury will be in retrograde from 10/31 to 11/20, utilize this review period to catch up on your communications, clean up your email, tidy up your office or take your car in for a checkup.  Be prepared for some abrupt changes in plans or unusual experiences on 10/27-28, and don’t get too scattered or overextended around 11/12 (Full Moon); drive carefully & communicate clearly.

Emotional & financial security has been an important priority lately – visualize prosperity & abundance!  Look into new sources of income, make time to balance your checkbook and stock up on the necessities.  Protect your assets and avoid impulsive purchases, however, on 10/27-28 & 11/5.  Make some improvements in your nutritional and dietary habits, and nurture yourself; treat yourself to something special on 11/12.  From 11/1 on, you’ll be inspired to beautify your base of operations and fill your home with family, friends & laughter.  Visitors from afar may appear on your doorstep!
