A Mercury-Saturn square influencing the first half of the day can have a way of revealing the flaws of a situation, dear Sagittarius.

This can be a bit discouraging, but it can also motivate you to fix problem areas. There could be temporary blocks, the reality of costs, or delays, and reexamining goals can be a useful process.

The long-term is vital to consider whenever Saturn is involved as it is now. Look within for your wisdom instead of allowing others’ input unduly influence your decisions. Keep your sense of humor today.

This becomes easier as the day advances and Mercury hooks into a harmonious aspect with Mars, and the tendency is no longer to dwell but to sort out problems.

You may be seeking intellectual stimulation or drawing up plans for a new project. Collaboration or a friendly activity can be rewarding. Energy levels improve as motivation increases.

Your world is shrouded in a subtle mystery — so much so that you start to lose your own orientation. Being disoriented can be a pleasurable experience, though.

Sometimes you enjoy getting lost, especially when it is in a place you think you know well. It helps to awaken the explorer in your core.

Engage the illusions, trace their contours. Perhaps you will strike gold and reveal a whole new aspect of your character you never knew existed. You can only find out by trying.

The Sun’s first full day in a social and serendipitous part of your chart, has brought you to a more socially connected time of year.

With Mercury, planet of communication in his early days here as well, you have reached an important point of the year for personal and professional networking.

This year this will need to be balanced by an already strong need for time to yourself. With major new doors opening from early November, you’re recharging your batteries in preparation for what lies ahead.
