Yesterday,- Mars began his less common retrograde cycle in Gemini – October 30th until January 12th. These three months are a good time to explore new ideas and areas to put your focus and ambition.
Don’t believe everything you hear now because Gemini likes to explore numerous possibilities before choosing a select few.
The Moon moves into friendly Aquarius on Monday, Halloween. The Moon’s – conjunct to Pluto while squaring trick or treat Mercury, is out to wreak some havoc. A lunar sextile with Jupiter, backed into Pisces, helps us joyously share some goodies with anyone who passes by.
A sugar hangover could be in store on Tuesday, All Saint’s Day, due to a sequence of challenging lunar aspects, including squares of the Sun, Venus, and Uranus, before it finally conjuncts Saturn. This could be a grumpy day, and our need for strength and security could lead us to harm a friend with our words. Take a deep breath and find a strengthening affirmation first, before you allow hurtful words to leave your mouth.
A smile and upbeat energy returns on Wednesday and Thursday, with lunar trines of Mars, Mercury, Venus, and the Sun bringing vibes of inspiration, action, cooperation, and, more important, understanding.

A temperamental and arguing energy is in store for the weekend, due to an opposition of Uranus and Venus along with a square with the Moon (Aries) and Pluto, (Capricorn). People will be full of emotions in their political bid for power.
Saturday night/Sunday morning we turn back the clocks – to end daylight savings time. This always throws off our balance and can lead to crankiness for a few days, as our bodies adjust to the changes. Turn in early Saturday night to avoid the drama.

Be forgiving of yourself and your family and friends during this time.
A prominent lunar eclipse on November 8th shapes the quality of time for this month. The Moon is conjunct Uranus and square Saturn.
