This Tuesday, October 13, Mercury turns retrograde, making a U-turn in Scorpio and your fifth house of romance until October 27—then, backing up through Libra and your domestic zone before correcting course on November 3. An ex could come back into the picture, flooding you with attention, noble gestures and seductive offers.
