Neptune, however, will give us a few moments of creativity and originality that could get us through some minor blips in our October money horoscope.
About Mercury Retrogrades
The coming Mercury retrograde isn’t the only headliner in the October money horoscope, but it is an important topic. For clarity’s sake, the strongest days of a Mercury retrograde influence are the four days surrounding the change in transit. Those are the days that it’s best to avoid signing contracts or buying expensive items as contracts may need renegotiation later and big-ticket items may not work the way they should.
The universe doesn’t expect you to put your whole life on hold during the entire retrograde period. However, there may be other influences during that period that should make you ask, “Do I need to do this now, or should I wait?” Your money horoscope has two such days—October 8 and 29 when Mercury conjuncts Saturn.
