Mercury retrograde on Halloween 2019- How will it affect you?


Halloween 2019 falls on 31st October and so does the Mercury Retrograde. Therefore, take care of Halloween as Mercury retrogrades.

We are often frightened by the retrograde word. Simply put, however, it means the planet is moving one backward. As a matter of fact of science, retrograde motion is an apparent change in the movement of the planet through the sky.

It means that all the planets seem to be rising in the east and set in the west. It is called progressive or direct when a planet travels eastward in relation to the stars. However, .it is called retrograde when the planet travels westward in relation to the stars. (which is known as a backward or opposite path in Vedic astrology)

Planet Mercury stations retrograde at 27 degrees in Scorpio sign on 31st Oct 2019 at 5 pm, where it will conjunct with the planet Venus. Mercury stations direct at 11 degrees in Scorpio sign on 20th Nov 2019.

Finally, mercury leaves the shadow in the Scorpio sign, on the 07th Dec at 27 degrees and will enter Sagittarius sign. This can impact your two holidays and it can be Halloween 2019 and Thanksgiving Day.

As Mercury rules communication, technology, and satellite, etc, have characteristics of the Moon as well as the planet Jupiter will get conjunct in Scorpio sign with the planet of love and desires Venus. Yes, you are thinking right, it can impact your love life. It will impact communication for sure and issues with technology can arise. As it is getting retrograde in water sign which will impact emotions as well (it can be positive or negative).

Presently, you can see the amount of fire in California and Australia, the only reason for the same is the shadow of planet Mercury on the Sun which is transiting in Libra sign. This happens only 13 times about every 100 years when the planet Mercury passes in between the Earth and the Sun.

The low down on Halloween 2019

If you are involved in stock markets then this information could be worth it for you. The U.S. federal reserve will be announcing the policy rates later today. They may cut the rate one more time. But this policy can be very dynamic for the future and the tone will be key.

As the planet Mercury is in the shadow phase and will be retrograde tomorrow, therefore, the tone of the commentary will be either extreme dovish or hawkish. So if you are involved in markets then be light with your trading positions. For commodities, a big move can be expected in gold either side. It will be a sentiment play.
