VIRGO (August 23–September 23)
Mercury retrograde in Scorpio October 13 through Election Day dramatically impacts your communication structures. If you've skimped on upgrades the probability of tech breakdowns skyrocket when Mercury opposites Uranus October 7 and again when the retrograde opposition repeats October 19. This is both metaphorical and literal. Everything you've devalued about how you connect to others is in danger of breakdown unless you're willing to invest in it. Repair, replace, and renew channels and connections before the Sun's conjunction to retrograde Mercury October 25 and Mercury with Venus in Libra on October 27 or you may miss a crucial opportunity.
