Monday, September 19th is a tension-filled day for Mercury retrograde as a waxing moon sits in a square with Mercury. It’s imperative to avoid taking things personally during this tumultuous time. This exercise is made more difficult by the ego-driven Sun moving toward Mercury RG, but the stars encourage you to keep trying.
How might it look for your sign?
It’s easy to use your energy and productivity towards your passions. The real challenge comes from using these same attributes for life’s tedious, unsavory aspects. Aries, even the boring parts have a purpose.
Don’t underestimate your subconscious ability to affect your conscious reality, Taurus. Your mental health can have tangible impacts on others, no matter how personal it may be. That’s a responsibility you must not ignore.

It’s important to stand up for what’s right, but it’s also important to get the whole picture before acting. In a time where chaos is running rampant in the cosmos, it’s more crucial than ever to get all your facts straight.
Part of personal growth is letting go of what doesn’t serve you, Scorpio. This includes things like your job or relationship. This also includes letting go of negative habits that can hinder your progress.

Just because your first instinct is to share your resources doesn’t mean it’s the one you have to follow. Generosity can be a wonderful trait. However, you should be careful about giving beyond your means.
