Weekly horoscopes: Oct. 13-19
They say that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line, but you will see this line highjacked by the contrarian energies of Mercury retrograde on Oct. 16 and 17. Any straightforward endeavor will go wildly off course on these two days, which is why you should avoid launching any enterprises, sitting down to any important meetings or finalizing any significant agreements. However, Mercury retrograde does have a funny way of turning pratfalls into grand entrances for those who are shrewd enough to recognize an opportunity in a crisis. Indeed, an unexpected reversal could wind up landing you a seat at the table where all the places have been taken on Oct. 22.
