Do you need a week of relaxation and rest? That’s right, folks – even in the midst of the chaos of Mercury retrograde, the planets have aligned to give you a break! This week, there are no major transits, giving you time to catch up on sleep, rest, or rejuvenation.

This is the week of vacation vibes for you because the planets and the stars are calling for a week of mellow energy and restful experiences.

On October 13th, Venus – the planet of love and beauty – in a harmonious angle to Saturn, the planet of responsibility. That means that hard work and dedication are at the forefront of your mind, making it easier to work hard and get things done.

On October 16th, Mercury retrograde – currently in Libra – will be in a pleasant angle to Venus, currently in the fiery sign of Sagittarius. This social, friendly transit makes it easier for you to connect with others – you might even meet a destined friend or make a deep connection during this transit.

But your main focus this week revolves around self-care. Have you been taking care of yourself? Have you honored your needs and desires? If not, this is the time to do so. Listen to your internal voice for the intuitive secrets meant only for you.

October 11 – October 17 is a Week for Self-Care & Self-Love

Because the planets are giving us a bit of a break, it’s the perfect time to slow down and take care of yourself. Focusing on self-care rituals this week will help you feel refreshed and ready for new projects and challenges.

Take this time to rest, relax, and take care of your body and your mind.

Take a bubble bath, stretch your limbs daily, write in your journal, eat nutritious foods. You deserve to feel good! Yoga, meditation, astrology, and Tarot readings are also healing activities that will help you feel more balanced and centered.

If you have trouble relaxing, a personalized astrological reading can help you learn how to unwind.
