Saturday begins with the Moon perfectly full, near-perfectly conjoined disruptive Uranus. The annual Full Moon in Taurus usually helps stabilize matters, but this 2020 edition is charged and volatile. It is October’s last, but not least, surprise. The theme here is the relationship between the fixed and the volatile, the stable and the erratic. Times of rapid change not only show us what is prone to change, they also illuminate what is thoroughly resistant to it. It is the sturdy things, that go unmoved by the gale, that we must tie our fortunes to. Look to what, and who, does not blow in the wind.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Friday begins with the peppy Moon in Aries’ frustrating square with slow Saturn in Capricorn, starting things off at a delayed pace. Shortly afterward, though, Luna’s focus shifts to retrograde Mercury in Libra, turning the topic toward repairs, adaptations, and crucial adjustments.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
The Moon enters Taurus during the afternoon, laying the ground for a night of lunar excess. Though the moment of the Moon’s perfect fullness does not come until early tomorrow, tonight the Moon will be as bright and round as people in the Americas will see it. Big silver energy washes the night, bringing high tide to both minds and shorelines.

Thursday is not particularly well-omened. A superheated conjunction of the Moon and retrograde Mars in Aries dominates the daytime skies. You might be able to keep that combustion inside of an engine, but it wouldn’t be the simplest thing. If you can, focus on solo projects rather than social matters, as the martial quality of the day is likely to irritate.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
Things get less heated as the Sun dips beneath the horizon, but not necessarily better. Where day was inflammatory, thanks to Mars, night is heavy, constricted, and gloomy, courtesy of Pluto and Saturn.

The heavens give us a day to adjust to last night’s changes to the line-up. With Mercury and Venus both now in Libra, matters of equilibrium and balance rise to the forefront. This puts six out of seven visible planets in rambunctious cardinal signs, indicating that there is a tremendous amount of initiatory, activating energy in play. Put on your cowboy hat, because it’s a rodeo for the next while.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Day and night have very different qualities. The Moon in Pisces spends the sunlit hours configured to Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn in Capricorn. This connection of watery Pisces and earthy Capricorn may make for somewhat muddy, slow terrain. It is certainly navigable, but is likely to become more of a slog the longer that the day goes.
Evening, however, brings a host of changes, as it sees Mercury, Venus, and the Moon all change signs. Retrograde Mercury is the first to cross a border. The Messenger retreats from Scorpio, backing into Libra. Matters of balance and fairness will be at the forefront while Mercury is in Libra, which will be until November 10th.
Venus’ ingress into Libra follows only minutes after Mercury’s regress. Venus is powerful in Libra, and pushes for harmonious relationships and graceful movement through the world. Though strong astride the Scales, this year Venus must negotiate with seething Mars and the heavy, gloom-laden pairing of Saturn and Pluto. The balance is thus set to swing between harmony and strife, fairness and foul play, throughout the morning star’s time in Libra. Venus will be in Libra until November 21st. Finally, late night, the Moon enters Aries and opposes newly ingressed Venus in Libra, starting the scales swinging with a taste of what’s to come.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
