Good morning, lover! Your weekly horoscope for September 27-October 3 2021 is here.
Not to be the bearer of bad news, but this Monday marks the debut of Mercury’s (planet of communication) backward motion. Once again, we find ourselves in the grasp of Mercury retrograde. However, please note that Mercury retrograde seasons account for nearly three months in total of each year. So, save the proclamations of doom and gloom for another season—perhaps election season?
Of course, this doesn’t mean that there won’t be a few bumps in the road where communication, travel, and even tech are concerned. Such is the nature of the season. Furthermore, Mercury is quite the lover when he’s in Libra, so be on the lookout for miscommunication with your crush or partner if you’re romantically involved with someone.
However, the show must go on, and there are a few other transits this week to stay on top of. For example, Venus in Scorpio goes into a square with Jupiter (planet of expansion) in Aquarius. Intense and overblown emotions are in the forecast, so try a little tenderness this week.
Sunday’s skies offer a bit of reprieve from the intensity of the week with Mercury trining Jupiter. “Broad-minded” is the word of the day. Take a minute to philosophize and reflect on the week (and life as a whole if you like).
