“Be an Encourager: When you encourage others, you boost their self-esteem, enhance their self-confidence, make them work harder, lift their spirits and make them successful in their endeavors. Encouragement goes straight to the heart and is always available. Be an encourager. Always.”
Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
Personal confidence is restored, and we face the new week with a gleam in our eye and a fire in our belly. The prior days’ energy seems to have disappeared like magic. We’ve regained faith in ourselves and our abilities. Just in time, as Mercury Retrograde draws ever nearer. Stay balanced and understand where to go from here. Self-assurance and strong will-power keep us on track even though it may seem impossible to fully understand where we’re actually headed.
THE WEEK AHEAD: Confidence is restored on Monday under a Leo Moon. The atmosphere is unpredictable, and behavior is somewhat erratic. There are strong elements of faith that serve to temper our approach and keep our confidence from becoming abrasive. We have little desire to pursue direct confrontation on Tuesday, which seems to further temper our self-confidence and determination. The tension serves as a bit of grinding and polishing on our approach and our interactions with others. Sun’s entrance into Scorpio on Wednesday signals an important shift in our focus. For the past few months, we have been geared towards building cooperation, embracing collaboration, and making new alliances. To this end, our focus has been on understanding others and listening to alternative points of view. However, with the shift towards Scorpio’s determined search for truth, we are increasingly disinclined to take input from others or seek compromise. Although it may take much of the week to stabilize our self-confidence amid the ongoing uncertainty in the environment, we find determined resolve to move forward. Nonetheless, Mercury is slowing down and will retrograde beginning next week, from October 31st until November 20th. The self-directed course that we seek to establish this week will more than likely be subject to significant review. That is not to say that we are charting the wrong course — only that we should plan to take time to carefully review our strategies and think through the potential outcomes, in search of weaknesses in our plans and elements that we may have overlooked. While the resolve may feel quite uplifting — even intoxicating — we should seek to be just as resolute in approaching the careful review of our resolve.
