A New Course on a Bumpy Road!
You'll be able to get more done this week than you have in quite some time as Mars enters hard-working Virgo on October 15! Just watch out for argumentative people throughout the week, especially once October 18 brings a lunar eclipse in the warrior sign of Aries! Finally, put your plans on a brief delay and regroup at the end of the week when Mars opposes confusing Neptune on October 19.
October 15: Mars enters Virgo
If you've been hoping to make more progress on certain goals, you'll be able to do it this month as Mars, the action planet, enters practical, efficient Virgo! Have you been thinking about exercising, changing your diet, or getting started on a home improvement project? Go for it! This transit gives you discipline and energy, which makes it easier to commit to plans or projects that require extra effort. If you know the houses energetic Mars will be traveling through in your birth chart, you'll be able to identify the area(s) of your life that will benefit from an investment of extra energy. Mars will be in Virgo until December 7.
October 18: Lunar eclipse in Aries
When the bold, impulsive, and fiery sign of Aries is highlighted by a lunar eclipse, you can expect a few sparks! Lunar eclipses occur at a full Moon -- extra-emotional times when people are prone to reacting quickly to circumstances before properly thinking things through. On the positive side, no sign is more courageous than Aries, so you're likely to have the necessary energy and passion to advocate for yourself (and others). The ongoing Uranus-Pluto square is present during this eclipse, demonstrating that world-changing events continue to capture everyone's attention. You'll do best if you simply ride the waves of change rather than try to swim against the current.
October 19: Mars opposes Neptune
This aspect describes a confusing environment, as well as encounters with people who aren't straightforward. Mars' opposition to Neptune can let you know that you need to become clearer about what you want to do -- and why. If you find yourself spinning your wheels, stop and regroup. Your projects and plans can wait a day while you figure things out.
