Greetings, Earthlings,

Ah, last week we moved into mysterious Scorpio season! And this week we have some doozies to report. We have a lot going on, and it’s all centered around Scorpio.

The week starts with a New Moon in Scorpio on Monday, inspiring you to follow your intuition to plant the seeds of new beginnings, and follow that crazy but lovable heart of yours. Love is out there, and even if it is an intense passion for your work product, the New Moon in Scorpio can help you to find that next chapter.

This is also a very karmic New Moon. So keep this in mind when you are working out those New Moon wishes.

Review: New Moon in Scorpio: Karma Payback Time - What Goes Around Comes Around

As the week continues, we have both Mercury and Venus making some changes. On Thursday, Mercury in Scorpio turns retrograde on Halloween, and this is going to slow things down a bit for a few weeks. Take some time to spend the first half of the week getting caught up on any major correspondence, communications, or travel plans before Mercury slows this down. If you have any legal matters to tend to, now is the time to get that done. Remember that for the first half of this week we are in the New Moon zone, so you are going to be on the cusp of some new beginnings as you also wrap things up.

Moving into the week, we have Venus entering Sagittarius on Friday, and this is going to put a little fire in your step when it comes to love and money matters. Venus is the planet that attracts both love and financial opportunities for you, and in Sagittarius, she is going to be using her adventurous spirit to do so. This transit will be in play for most of November. You’ll be thinking big, and maybe feeling a little lucky here as Sagittarius is a notoriously lucky zodiac sign.

Don’t fret. If you need to know how to use this fun transit in your day-by-day, we’ve got the Daily Horoscopes to work it out for you. It’s all wrapping up a busy and lovely week from the stars.

Happy Halloween! Make those New Moon wishes count this week! Namaste, friends.

This is a favorable transit that is going to help you attract some wonderful things.

  • Mercury retrograde in Scorpio: This is the time of year when life both slows down and picks up at the same time. We are no longer in the lazy and hazy days of Summer and gearing up for the season of Winter. But at the same time, no matter what hemisphere we are in, the holidays and a new year are just weeks away, and it’s time to start picking up the pace for that in our schedules and lives. Then along comes Mercury retrograde. This is the communication planet moving a little slower; so slow that it is almost moving backwards. Mercury is in Scorpio now, and so Mercury in retrograde in a Water sign is going to have you feeling like you are treading water with weights on. Life is super slow now. All things that Mercury rules like paperwork, short journeys, travel, transportation, and all gadgets that rule communication are going to be impacted. So in this technological day and age, a lot of our lives are going to slow down. Try and get as much as you can get done regarding legal or travel plans before November 1, and you won’t worry so much about this retrograde. It won’t hurt to have your car tuned up either. Some wrinkles that can be caused by slower Mercury can be prevented. Use our Free 3 Card Tarot Reading for help making decisions during Mercury retrograde.
