You’ve got a lot of your focus on your relationships and loved ones this month - but probably for bad reasons! Mercury retrogrades (appears to move backward) in your intimacy and relationship sectors in October, and that can create all sorts of problems with your loved ones. If in a relationship, make sure you think before you speak, and don’t give in to screaming matches that drive a wedge between you. If single, you have a harder time finding someone willing to commit to you. Better luck next month!
The start of the Mercury retrograde (appearing to move backward) early in the month gets your head spinning with your loved ones, partners, and relationships. Even your enemies seem worse.

Apologize for anything you’ve said to hurt them - or better yet, refrain from spiteful, mean comments in the first place.

You’re practical in love this month, but you also can demand too much from your loved ones. You want them to meet your high expectations, but they’re only human.
