Are you ready for an inspiring and potentially life-transforming week?

On Tuesday, Mercury retrograde begins, and this transit will last until November 3rd, 2020. You may experience miscommunications or notice travel plans go wonky, but it is also a time to review your opportunities for growth, and healing in relationships.

Then on Friday, we have a New Moon in Libra. Take some time to get clear with what your heart is pulling you towards and set an intention that states what you want to manifest in this new cycle.

This week’s astrology overview is all about recreating yourself using the artistic energy of then Sun and Moon in Libra, and the emotional genius of Mercury in Scorpio!

You may suddenly get ideas during the New Moon that help you chart a new path that is much more inspiring and much more invigorating. This week, ask yourself what your personal astrology reveals about your natural gifts and how you can use them to live with purpose and add positive energy to the world.

How to Use the Libra Moon

Your creative energy will likely not kick in until Thursday, so you can spend the first part of the week focused on getting tasks done, and taking care of yourself. The beginning of the week is also a good time to clear out any bad habits or activities you’ve been attached to lately.

On Thursday, sit with a journal in silence and just listen to the Universe. See which direction it is asking you and your soul to point your energy towards for the next two weeks as we approach the Full Moon.

This is a magical time of incubation for your dreams and it’s a powerful day to plant a seed with the help of the Universe.

For the rest of the week, take action on this new goal, and use the building energy that is now available to you and helping you with creative approaches and optimism.

What The Planets Say About Love This Week

The good news is that Capricorn, Jupiter, and Pluto are no longer retrograde which means it’s quite a bit easier to find growth in our career. That being said, we only have so much energy to go around, so you may not have quite as much energy to put into love now that things are taking off in your work life.

Mercury retrograde usually brings up someone from our past in our memory or in real life. Remember that when something starts to feel like a repeat of the past, it probably is.

When you start to notice that deja vu feeling, listen to what the Universe is showing you, as it’s telling you that you do not have to repeat the same things. Mercury retrograde helps free us from our “addiction”’ to love in that it reminds us to first find love within ourselves rather than looking for happiness from others.
