When the week starts off with Mercury stationing retrograde in Scorpio followed by the Sun leaving social Libra for reserved Scorpio the next day, circumstances favor the quiet, introspective folk who happily spend most of their time alone. Most of us still have to head out the door for work regardless and interact with people whether we like it or not. It is an excellent time to do research if you are a writer or do investigative work of any kind.
A trine to Neptune in Pisces on October 25 will bring out the caring, compassionate side of Scorpio . . . which they do have you know. Scorpios can work tirelessly bringing help and healing to those in genuine need. Hypochondriacs, however, will be shown the door.
Venus in Sagittarius makes its last major aspect on Saturday – an inconjunct to Jupiter in Cancer. That ought to encourage all sorts of risky behavior on the weekend before Halloween!

Anytime Mercury is retrograde it is a good idea to allow extra travel time and verify all important information. Thankfully Mercury in Scorpio is naturally focused and not easily distracted . . . very useful when reading the fine print. When in doubt say nothing is a typical Scorpio response. This week we might all want to do that!
