The first week of November starts off pretty easy with minimum planetary movement (probably to give us a break from our Halloween hijinks). On Tuesday, Mercury retrograde will finally go direct, making us all breathe a collective sigh of relief. Mercury (planet of communication) will be moving forward for the rest of the year, thank the stars!
Mercury goes direct in Libra, giving us one week of airy communication before moving back into Scorpio next week. This gives us a golden opportunity to bring balance to our lives and mend some relationships that may have been hurt during the retrograde. With only one week to make things right, make it count!
However, Mercury in Libra doesn’t bring total peace. On Friday, Mercury squares Saturn (planet of foundation) in Capricorn, creating some communication difficulties. Disagreements, arguments, and even legal issues could plague that day. Pick your battles wisely and know when to keep your mouth shut.
