I cover your Weekly Horoscopes on the air on 106.5 The End on Monday afternoons at 5:40 p.m. PST, and all of them in their entirety are below, sign by sign for the week of October 12-18, which are all focused on how Mercury Retrograde will affect your sign. 

By the way, Mercury Retrograde runs from October 13 to November 3. Go here to find out what Mercury Retrograde is. 

Libra: You’ll have a hard time seeing things for what they really are during this Mercury Retrograde period. Take your time in making decisions to gather ALL the facts. And, if you can help it, don’t make any major life changing decisions during this time. Your week is an 8.

Scorpio: Mercury will be retrograde in your sign a majority of this period, so you’ll feel the effects in a major way. Watch out for dirty laundry from the past being exposed. If you claim to have a squeaky clean image, just wait until your ex shows up out of the blue. Proceed with caution. Your week is a 7.

Sagittarius: Your brain will feel extra foggy and your intentions may be misinterpreted this week with the beginning of Mercury Retrograde. Be sure to communicate as clearly and thoroughly as possible so you don’t misrepresent yourself and what your heart is feeling. Your week is an 8.

Capricorn: Your social life is getting busy this week, but you need to make sure you set and understand clear boundaries between work and pleasure. Blurring that line can cause some major drama that you’ll regret once Mercury turns direct, so be really careful. Your week is a 9.

Aquarius: Work is feeling pretty slow and frustrating for you this week, and a lot of that anxiety is coming from having extremely high self-imposed expectations. Take a step back, breathe, and take your time. Your week is a 6.

Pisces: While most other signs are faced with mix-ups and miscommunications, your ability to connect with others will come more easily for you this week. Practice patience with at work and in your social life with the people that appear to be experiencing more anxiety than you. Your week is an 8.

Aries: While you don’t want to go overboard with having extremely serious conversations during the Mercury Retrograde period (if you can help it), you definitely want to set clear boundaries this week with your partner. If something isn’t working, speak up. Your week is a 10.

Taurus: While Mercury enters its retrograde phase in your opposite sign of Scorpio, you’ll find the most balance by finding common ground with the people around you. The old adage that “opposites attract” just won’t cut it for the rest of the month in all aspects of life – not just dating. If you’re not seeing eye-to-eye with someone that you can’t avoid interacting with, find something in common to smooth things over. Your week is a 9.

Gemini: The slow pace that Mercury Retrograde brings this week will have you feeling restless. You need to take your time this week with all of your tasks, because the faster you try to rush through things or push for completion, the easier everything will crumble apart and burst at the seams. Your week is a 5.

Cancer: Your natural need to nurture and take care of people won’t be appreciated as much by others due to anxiety from this Mercury Retrograde period. This week, try to practice that love and nurture on yourself with your go-to self-care routine. Also, practice having the attitude of not taking anything too seriously for the remainder of this month. Your week is a 9.

Leo: Your fears and vulnerabilities will come to the surface this week, and you’ll have no choice but to face them under Mercury Retrograde. While you don’t necessarily have to pour your heart out and tell people all the personal details, shedding light on childhood memories with someone you trust can bring you closer and perhaps even resolve some issues you’re facing. Your week is a 7.

Virgo: Be very careful when interacting with anyone new that comes into your life this week. At work, a new coworker may not reveal their true colors until after Mercury turns direct November 3. Just when you thought you could trust this person, they may reveal themselves as untrustworthy down the road. This applies to your personal life, as well. Your week is a 6.
