Mercury Retrograde on October 21, 2013

Mercury Retrograde on October 21, 2013

The planet of communication Mercury will soon be moving into retrograde mode and we will all feel the repercussions of this powerful transit. In astrology, Mercury represents emotions, communication and expression. How you present your ideas to others, the information you, the feelings you express - everything will be influenced by this Mercury retrograde. It will be in this position from October 21 to November 10, 2013.

Astroyogi astrologers believe this Mercury Retrograde will be a significant one for all as it happens in unpredictable water sign Scorpio. All three retrogrades of Mercury this year have been in water signs and water acts as a filter and you are blunt in your speech. Even during this retrograde in Scorpio, you will approach situations in an honest manner and will speak your mind. You may hurt someone's feelings during this time but keeping secrets will only land you in trouble. The next few weeks will be challenging and you will face communication barriers. Difficulties in relationships are also likely during this Mercury transit.

Decision making skills are poor during Mercury Retrograde; hence, in astrology this is a time when you must avoid making decisions for your future. Formal contracts need to be avoided as all such initiatives launched during this phase do not bear fruits later.

This is a good time to reorganize your life. If your house needs a makeover, work on it and get busy cleaning those old and dusty closets. Change things around without going on a shopping spree. Use what you have to improve your personal space.

Look within! You will not get a better opportunity than this to focus on your own flaws and getting some fixing done. What is it that you don't like about yourself? Be honest and accept these issues that make you unhappy. The revelations will bring you much closer to happiness. Kindness is not an easy thing to practice. How kind have you been with those who are close to you and even with strangers you barely know? Life is short and there's not enough time to do something good for others. Mercury will help you on this path and will bless you with inner strength and clarity.

Spiritual journeys will bring you peace. No, a spiritual journey does not necessarily mean you taking a backpack and travelling across the length and breadth of India. It means deeply analyzing your inner self and gaining awareness about yourself. Explore and get to know the real you during this phase. The results will be highly rewarding.

October is not going to be an easy month for any of us. Signing documents should be strictly avoided. If you do not have the option to delay a launch or a new partnership, be careful and read the fine print. Take precautions and stay alert. Avoid starting anything new and wait for things to get better.
