If you've been ignoring your mental health, you may crash around this time, as you desperately need rest.
The lucky planet Jupiter also goes direct on Sunday, October 17. When the planet went retrograde on Sunday, June 20, you experienced a creative block. Stepping away from what you're working on can be the key to getting your groove back. But now, you feel invigorated and full of ideas.
