OVERVIEW: Mercury continues under retrograde, so those seeking more power have to be careful how they play their hand. Present correct information or it will be shown for you as the past is still in play. Check credentials etc. Great efforts will be made to persuade or influence others in pursuit of recognition. Some try to bend the law too much but favours can be called in. Lay out grand plans but give time up to Oct. 2 for final decisions or to sign things. (Mercury will resume forward motion then.) Relationships may seem sudden or fated; give rose coloured glasses a wipe to make sure.
ARIES: Put a little humour into the conversation if you want to bluff with not harm done.
TAURUS: You feel lucky and you are. Step out of your comfort zone in most areas.
GEMINI: Your interest deepens over home or location choices. Check the past history.
CANCER: Present your side of the story but give others time to look it over and respond.
LEO: Your status or reputation is a positive influence on your financial situation etc.
VIRGO: Be spontaneous when looking for fun and adventure. It won't cost too much.
LIBRA: Meet up in private and you will be happy with how this develops in a good way.
SCORPIO: Powerful associates come to your aid if you need them. Swap favours now.
SAGITTARIUS: Reputation grows as others become more aware of your abilities etc.
CAPRICORN: Negotiate a better price and it becomes a win win for all those involved.
