Face Challenges with Grace!
During this tumultuous week, you'll need to keep your wits about you to take advantage of opportunities hidden behind a few challenges! First, review your options as retrograde Mercury conjuncts Saturn on October 29. Then, be ready to implement plan B if you meet too many roadblocks once Mars trines Pluto and quincunxes Uranus on October 31. Uranus and Pluto square for the fourth time on November 1, when obstacles cause you to re-assess your plans. Finally, November 3 brings a dramatic solar eclipse in Scorpio, when you'll need to let go of the old to make way for the new!
October 29: Mercury conjuncts Saturn
Mercury, now retrograde in Scorpio, forms the second of three conjunctions with Saturn. You're ready to get serious about your commitments and agreements, and you may even be ready to sign on the dotted line. However, you don't have enough information yet to make a fully informed decision, so consider seeking out a mentor (or someone in a position of authority) who can provide wise counsel. Mercury remains retrograde, which means you still have a few things to figure out. Fact-check and double-check what others tell you. You'll be ready to move forward with all contracts and agreements after Mercury turns direct on November 10.
October 31: Mars trines Pluto and quincunxes Uranus
Your hard work pays off now as powerful, influential people take note of your talent and dedication and want to help you take your plans to the next level! However, you'll still have to pay attention to what people want from you, so be prepared to make changes to your course along the way. While your plans may change a few times, in the end people are bound to like what they see. So, don't give up if your first option isn't the one that others love.
November 1: Uranus squares Pluto
Today marks the fourth square between revolutionary Uranus and powerful Pluto. Your life has changed a great deal in the last two years, and you may wonder when things will calm down. You may have moved, ended a relationship, or started a new career. This aspect asks you to continue to make changes and face challenges with grace. Invest in your support network, embrace the future, and take heart that everyone everywhere is in it together. Opportunities exist, but you'll need to take advantage of them, so keep your eyes and ears open! Most of all, remember to count your blessings and, when you can, offer a helping hand to others -- and let them do the same for you!
November 3: Solar eclipse in Scorpio
Watch for a busy news cycle since an eclipse in Scorpio is known for revealing secrets, upsetting the balance of power, and bringing a fair amount of drama into people's lives. During this time, don't let your passions or emotions make your decisions for you; instead, try to be as flexible and thoughtful as possible. As this eclipse closes one cycle and begins another, you'll need to let go of something to make way for new experiences. Consider ridding yourself of longtime bad habits, as well as anyone who doesn't have your best interests at heart. Invest now in something you want to see grow and become more important in your life. Once the next full Moon arrives on November 17, you'll have a chance to stand back and take a look at everything you've accomplished!
