We’ve probably all heard that when the planet "Mercury retrogrades" it brings a variety of mayhem in our lives. But what exactly does that mean? 

Mercury symbolizes:  communication, contracts, negotiations, robbery, transportation, burnout and stress. When Mercury retrogrades, it affects us in these areas. During that time you may expect delays concerning a contract or negotiations, lost mail, luggage, or important documents. You may also miss some important phone calls. Often mechanical problems with cars, phones, computers, etc. happen. You could experience misunderstandings with others and also lots of stress. Most stress comes from our close surroundings. It looks like everything is going wrong and everyone is in a bad mood.

AQUARIUS:   Just when you thought you’d reached an accord with your better half, things get messed up yet again – and you can’t only blame your partner. Both of you are unstable, you keep changing your minds.

Since Mars is still in retrograde motion through your third solar house of communication, and again makes squares with planets from your twelve solar house, which means that both of you give yourselves more time to think about things.

 

During this time, solutions aren’t that obvious, if we keep in mind the fact that Mercury is in retrograde motion as of October 13. The astrological context of this term suggests that things should start to clear up towards the end of the year.

Mercury is the ruler of your fifth solar house of love, and its retrograde motion pushes you to analyze your emotional needs.

Some of you might be tempted to resume a connection with their ex or maybe with someone they met through their profession, maybe with their boss. But it’s not a good idea because Mercury is opposing Uranus (your ruler) which means that resuming a relationship which has ended a long time ago would lead to complications.

Other Aquarius tend to get into conflict with an ex and there might be gossip, denigration or issues with partitioning of goods (in the case of those who are going through a divorce). If you’re in such a situation, do not push things, but being patient until the second half of next month.

Work/Money:  Pluto (the ruler of your tenth solar house of career) resumes its direct motion on October 4, marking the beginning of a term during which some older professional situations clear up.

 

You might suddenly discover that you have an enemy disguised as a friend, collaborator, boss or so on.

 

But the most important thing is that you regain your direction and can clearly define your professional goals and long-term projects.

Some older project which has stagnated for some time could start to become real or give signs that it’s worth it to keep going with it during this fall/winter season.

If the activity you’re in is based on partnerships and collaborations, or classes or educative or publishing-related pursuits, you may deal with obstacles and misunderstandings most likely because of egos. But your own stubbornness could also be a problem.

As of October 13, Mercury is in retrograde motion in your tenth solar house of career, easing the way towards negotiating some material rights or boons, remaking proposals for getting funding or sponsorship and so on.

 

You also get the chance to negotiate getting out of a project or investment, refinancing some real-estate loan and so on. Keep in mind the fact that instability is bigger during this term and, on top of that, there could be unforeseen expenses related to home or family.
