Mercury is retrograde again this week, so you should also be aware of other transits this week. As Venus transits Scorpio on the 29th, it makes a trine to Neptune in Pisces, which is an excellent transit for your creative side, as well as for socializing. Be prepared for innovative ideas to come to you, which may or may not be inspired by a colleague or a friend. 

On the same day, the Sun makes a trine to Saturn in Aquarius, which is excellent for planning. During the next few weeks, you don’t want to execute anything. This is a great time to plan and to jot down any creative ideas you may have. 

You may find yourself making mountains out of molehills on the 30th when Venus in Scorpio squares Jupiter in Aquarius. A minor financial glitch may seem catastrophic to you, for example. But, breathe deeply and realize that things are not nearly as bad as they seem. 

Mercury in Libra makes a square to Pluto in Capricorn on October 1st. It means that communication could take a dark turn, and you may say something mean-spirited or harshly critical. If you slip up, prepare to apologize. 

Finally, on the 2nd, Pluto in Capricorn sextiles Venus in Scorpio, which is an excellent time to find a strategy to achieve any goal, no matter how big or small it is. How will you do based on your sign this week?

Aries – You may feel a bit nervous and anxious this week. It will be difficult for you to overcome the anxiety. You may find that it affects your productivity, but you are better off surrounded by naturally optimistic people and using relaxation techniques as much as you can. 

Taurus – You may feel that you are working too hard this week with little reward, but remind yourself that the gains will come in time. This week, it might be a good idea to focus on your hobbies or try something related to the arts to keep your mind off the situation. 

Gemini – You always have difficulty when your ruler is retrograde, which is why it is not a good idea for you to start anything new. Nevertheless, if there is a skill you wish to improve, you should concentrate on it. These energies are perfect for learning a new skill or honing an existing one. 

Cancer – Your energies this week are good for collaboration and teamwork, as you will be receptive to suggestions and ideas from colleagues. They suggest some ideas you might want to use for yourself. 

Leo – Perhaps you are considering some long-term goals for the new year and beyond. It is easy for you to adapt to suggestions from others because of your high level of creativity. Therefore, you should take plenty of notes, so you don’t forget anything once Mercury goes direct in several weeks. 

Virgo – The retrograde of your ruler makes this time difficult for you, but you may also have difficulty communicating effectively. You indeed tend to overanalyze things, but you also know when to remain silent if you disagree with someone’s actions. This week you may slip up and disapprove of someone. Expect some friction with colleagues and others in your life this week. It may be best to spend more time alone than not. 

Libra – You will feel discouraged this week when you do not receive the support you need from colleagues and seniors. You will feel that you have to figure everything out on your own. However, what stresses you more is the fact that you think you can’t talk to them. You’re prone to moving away from conflict, but be careful not to blow up out of frustration. 

Scorpio – You are in a position where you are good at problem-solving, and other people will come to you for help with that as well, even during a retrograde period. In addition, you will also be able to provide valuable input during meetings that will help others plan for their goals. 

Sagittarius – You need to take care of your mental and physical health not just this week but throughout the month. That is always essential, but this time is significant since you will face professionally and personally stressful situations. So make time to meditate, eat well, and exercise. 

Capricorn – This is an opportunity to connect with your spiritual side, which will help you get through busy work times. Meditating before beginning your workday will also help you keep stress to a minimum. You may also experience stress in your personal life. 

Aquarius – Taking a few days off in the middle of the week to help you regroup and find some balance is a good idea. In that case, find some time in your day to take a mental vacation by listening to your favorite music and daydreaming. Otherwise, you may feel overwhelmed by your work and other circumstances in your life. 

Pisces – Your creativity is vital, but it will be heightened this week so that you can do several things with it. Creative input can be provided to colleagues regarding their work or projects, and you can certainly apply it to your own. In addition, focusing on creative hobbies can help you reduce stress from work and home life this week. 

Next week, some energies will be influential, including the Libra New Moon, Pluto going direct, and Venus leaving Scorpio. You need to prepare yourself for all of those, but first, get through this week!
