10/13 ~ Mercury (communication) ~sextile~ Saturn (responsibility): This energy is really good for being able to objectively see what needs to be changed, fixed or stabilized in your life or environment.
Energy is a tough, yet powerful one. It's Highest expression would be to focus on your inner discovery and development. It enables you to look beneath the surface to some core drives and gain some valuable insights.
This can be a very confusing energy. You will be very sensitive to others and their needs and how they relate to your own. You may want to withdraw or not voice your opinion just to avoid conflict, feeling like it wouldn't solve anything anyway.
Allow information to flow at a comfortable pace and wait a week for the energy to shift before making any decisions based on the information gathered. Some will access the necessary clarity for furthering their vision.
This energy is going to help you further organize your life, mainly your home, office or immediate environment. Others may see you as a hard worker, but really you are only doing what you feel must be done at this time.
In General ~ the Mercury Retro thru GEMINI suggests great support for pulling back where/when possible to really process the last 3-6 months. Mars & Venus are active throughout this time, though in very different ways.
