Of course, we're in the throes of Mercury retrograde, which happens three times every year; and let's face it -- even though it's frustrating, it's not really a big deal. Having said that, (she announced, clearing her voice ominously) this particular retrograde Mercury will slide backward until it is opposite wild, wacky Uranus. Eeek! In fact, this occurs this week! This is definitely an accident-prone situation. Quite likely, it will be the kind of accident that is related to unfinished situations. Something you left out that you meant to put away. Loose ends that come back to bite you. Or falling off the wagon. "Ma'am, put the ice cream down. Keep your hands in the air. Step away from the fridge." Busted!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
It's all about you now, dear Libra. The Sun is back in your sign for the next four weeks, boosting your energy, and attracting powerful people and opportunities to you. Make the most of this time. Demand the advantage! (Because you certainly have it.) Why? Because you can project your energy out to others more than usual. Mind you, others will notice you have a more subjective viewpoint. So what? This is not allowed? Not even once a year? This is the beginning of your new personal year (i.e. your year, which is from birthday to birthday.) And -- this is the most powerful birthday you've had in 30 years! So there.
