Sunday sees a pair of ingresses, the first of which is the Sun’s entrance into Scorpio. The Sun leaves equivocating Libra behind, forsaking the scale for the sultry, bioluminescent tunnels of Scorpio. In Scorpio, the Sun’s light penetrates the surface, driving like x-rays to find both hidden gems and ugly secrets. The Sun will be in Scorpio until November 21st.
Shortly after the Sun’s ingress, Mars enters Libra. Mars is uncomfortable in Libra, for it is a sign of peace and equilibrium, and Mars is the lord of open contest and vigorous contention. The sign makes it difficult for Mars to express its nature, and thus the martial current grows thin and weak. A dip in energy and motivation levels may accompany the red planet’s time in the sign of the Scales. Meanwhile, intensifies passive-aggression, and tests the boundaries of agreements. Mars will be in Libra until December 8th, when he enters Scorpio.
The rest of the daylight is uneventful, though night holds a fun, social sextile between the Moon in Sagittarius and Venus in Libra, followed by a disorienting square with Neptune in Pisces.Astrology of Oct 13th – 22nd
