This month we’re blessed with two weeks to make clear, logical decisions or plan important projects. These dates begin October 2nd and this cycle (Mercury sextile Saturn) stays in range through October 15th. This is excellent for getting a plan together for your fortunate actions. Make good use of this! This cycle peaks on October 6th and 13th.
On October 9th, Mercury stops and turns around to move forward again, marking the end of its retrograde. Notice that word “stops”. This means the planet in charge of movement and communications is NOT moving at all. It takes time for Mercury to get its momentum going enough to move forward again. So don’t expect Mercurial delays to end right away. Mercury won't be moving close to its normal speed until October 16th. And it won't be moving into new territory, fully marking the end of this Mercury retrograde cycle, until October 24th. So you have until then to finish redoing your tasks.
