Dive into the think tank! The genius ideas flood in near Wednesday as clever Mercury trines eccentric Uranus in the most productive zones of your chart. Pause from "doing, doing, doing," Scorpio. Busywork is cluttering your head with data and interfering with your creativity. A change of scenery can stimulate your sensors. Take a short drive and set up your laptop in a new cafe; host a meeting in the park instead of the conference room. And by all means, gather your savviest sounding boards and bounce ideas off the great minds in your midst. This will quickly sharpen your focus and take your visionary plans even higher. Uranus governs technology and Mercury our mobile devices. Download apps, utilize cloud-based software and upgrade your gadgets. Getting systematized and organized is a timesaver, Scorpio—which means more hours in the day for kayaking and poolside lounging.
On Friday, Uranus slips into snooze mode until December 30. From 2011-18, the revolutionary planet is orbiting through Aries and your sixth house of wellness, service and daily work. For the past five years, life may have felt a bit more "lather, rinse, repeat" than is the Scorpio norm. Well, in moments, at least. Structures that weren't stable (or interesting!) may have fallen away—in a shocking manner, even—creating space for more grounding options to flow in. With Uranus in reverse for basically the rest of 2016, keep making order out of chaos. Self-care should be top priority. Manage stress levels with regular breaks and lots of exercise. By the same token, don’t burn yourself out with an intense Soul Cycle schedule or force a juice cleanse when you really need the calories of chewable meals and the brain power that protein provides. Pushing yourself isn't the point here; grounding yourself is. Rebalance the ratio of green smoothies to frozen margaritas; get your beauty sleep. You don't want to crash from sugar overload or lose momentum at work. Create a professional buffer while you're at it. Certain clients could become unreliable now; assignments held up by annoying red tape. People you relied on for support could suddenly disappear (or become oddly scarce) while Uranus is retro. Real talk, Scorpio: Your "never let them see you sweat" sign hates to admit when you need help. But don't cling to the one or two people who you feel comfortable falling apart around. Before it even gets to that point, bolster yourself with a larger pool of supporters. Uranus rules technology so tap those apps. Hiring a TaskRabbit to assemble your bookshelves could save you countless hours of tinkering with drill bits and hex keys. And honestly, wouldn't you rather be adding graphics to a profitable proposal or watching Game of Thrones, Scorpio?
Your popularity is on the rise this Saturday when garrulous Mercury moves into Virgo and your eleventh house of community until October 7—an extra-long voyage due to Mercury's retrograde from August 30 to September 22. Mingle both online and in real time. You could make friends all over the globe now. While you tend to roll with a tight-knit crew, open up your guest list to the general public. A friend-of-a-friend could be the very person you've been dying to meet. Play entertainment director for your squad, organizing group hangs and bringing together friends you just KNOW need to meet. The eleventh house is the tech sector of the chart. Geek is chic with messenger Mercury in this part of your chart. Spruce up your social media profiles, launch a blog, develop an app. Your luckiest connections may be a status update or a message away. "Carpe DM," Scorpio!
