You may wonder what the heck is up with your friends and family as Mars clashes with Uranus at the start of the week. Rash moves and unexpected behavior could disrupt the usual routine. You’re unlikely to get a straight answer as Mercury opposes Neptune from October 2-3, so you’ll have to read between the lines. It’s also smart to scrutinize contracts and agreements. Things might not be what they seem. As Mercury trines Pluto on Tuesday, you can be a shrewd communicator and negotiator, provided you know all the facts. The Last Quarter Moon in your sign on Friday can spark second thoughts about a home or family plan. Don’t get sidetracked by your personal preferences. Stick to the original scheme.
