Although Mercury’s retrograde journey through Virgo concludes on October 2, its rocky vibes will continue to be felt throughout its post-retrograde shadow period, threatening to leave you overly stressed and disorganized until the sixteenth.
Luckily, Aries, you’ll have a chance for a reprieve through love’s healing touch as the sun makes its way through harmonious Libra. Lean in to these dreamy vibes by embracing plenty of self-care and nurturing your body, especially on days that feel particularly tense. Romance will also flourish under this luminary placement, so be sure to let down your guard with that special someone.
And you’ll have a cosmic excuse to prioritize your own needs when the full moon manifests in your sign on October 9, sharing connections with the healing asteroid Chiron and sweet Venus. Use this energy as motivation to embrace forgiveness, especially when it comes to yourself and your closest companions. Unfortunately, tension could arise within your romantic relationship, and you might need to fight to maintain balance in the dynamic.
You could begin to notice a decline in your energy and motivation starting, when Mars kicks off its retrograde journey through chatty Gemini on the thirtieth. This planetary backspin is one of the most difficult astrological periods for you, so you might want to brace yourself for its wonky effects. Avoid launching new projects or taking on any new forms of study during this time, because you might quickly lose interest or have a hard time making any progress. Issues could also arise with people reneging on their promises. You should exercise caution when it comes to taking people at their word.
