From this week until October 18, you could give constant or considerable thought to relationships, partnerships, or one in particular. As Mercury moves backward and affects commitments and companions, where you stand with a particular person could be more unclear than clear until mid-October. But don't be concerned if you tend to focus frequently on what you know you don't want from a one-to-one connection. That's the first step needed to help clarity arrive.
If creating more stability in a particular area has proved challenging recently, you could find a workable solution this week.

You're about to enter a helpful time of reflection. But your ruling planet is in no rush, and neither should you be!
Increasing responsibilities might have made it difficult for you to focus on and resolve a domestic or family matter recently. You may have felt that by now, you'd be in a position to do so.

But the universe has lined up one or two sweet developments elsewhere. So, this week could be memorable in another way.
You can be certain a mental filter will come in handy from this week until October 18. Mindful Mercury moves backward in ways likely to scramble thoughts and communication.

Mischievous Mercury goes backward in your sign until October 18. There are plus points to this. However, it could be easy to focus on the not-so-plus points. Back up electronic data frequently.

It's possible that a 'new you' could present itself to the world during the coming weeks.
Until October 18, the universe encourages you to call 'time out.' Where you stand with one or two people and possibly resentment or pain attached to unresolved matters might require you to ponder your next steps privately.

You're sending out a vibe now that others will likely find very easy to welcome!
What is it 'they' say about too many chefs in a kitchen? Something about spoiling the broth! The same could be said for an area of your world where others' involvement, although well-intended, could create complications.

But there may be limits regarding how helpful and necessary it is.
If there's one thing that might concern a Capricorn, it's confusion, uncertainty, and instability on the career front. Yet, if anyone knows how to turn something volatile into something solid and inspiring, you do.

But this could also be the universe's way of encouraging you to give proper thought to where you should be going - or what you should be doing.
This week, Mercury moves backward in a way that affects your distant horizons, future vision, mind expansion, and philosophies. That's quite a list.

The period of reflection that commences this week could help you find it.

The transition might feel uncomfortable at first. But it won't take long for you to feel reassured by what changes!
