The Sun rises for the first time in Mars-ruled Scorpio today. Appropriately enough, this is a Tuesday, the day of Mars, which begins with the almost-full Moon in Mars-ruled Aries’ sextile with Mars in Aquarius. If you’re not seeing the theme, we need to talk about your reading comprehension skills. Lean into the martial current today. Declare it a day of sacred ass- and task- kicking. Set an ambitious agenda and plow through it.
When the Sun sets in the West, the Moon and then Uranus will rise in the East. The Sun in Scorpio is perfectly opposed Uranus in Taurus today, which seeds the night with Uranus’ volatile, idealistic, revolutionary energy. All through the night, the bright Moon will draw increasingly close to radical Uranus, although the conjunction of the two, and the Moon’s moment of peak fullness, will not occur until tomorrow morning. Tuesday night will nonetheless be the fullest Moon those in the Americas witness.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Monday begins with the peppy Moon in Aries’ square with slow and serious Saturn, which may start things out on a frustrated note. Fortunately, the Moon gets increasingly free of Saturn as the day progresses, and the abundant light of the nearly-full Moon in Aries increasingly pervades the atmosphere.
Somewhere in the secret depths of night, the Sun sneaks into Scorpio. In the Scorpion’s sign, the Sun’s light penetrates the surface, diving below to illuminate both hidden gems and nasty secrets. The truth of desire and instinct are both revealed and stimulated by the Sun’s time in Scorpio, which will last until November 22nd.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The only aspect which occurs this Sunday is the waxing Moon in Pisces’ afternoon trine with Jupiter in Scorpio. This is a generally benefic configuration which can buoy a wide variety of different endeavors. It is helpful for activity and accomplishment, as well as relaxation and recovery. There are no further events until late night, when the Moon enters Aries. The Moon’s entrance into the Ram’s sign rouses the spirit, yet potentially for naught, as it spends the ensuing hours in a square with obstructive Saturn, highlighting friction between will and way.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

The Moon sails slowly through Pisces today, and makes a spacey conjunction with Neptune around sunset. This conjunction is good for losing oneself in fictions and fantasy, relaxation, and imaginative works, but contraindicated for activities which require precision and decisiveness.
The Moon flows away from Neptune as the evening deepens, and then makes a trine with Mercury in Scorpio, giving the night a more mentally active, conversational quality than the day.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences

Friday begins with the same mental mixture of Neptunian dreaminess and Martial oomph that colored Thursday. The Moon shifts into Pisces during the afternoon, and spends the rest of the day in aspect to both Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. This combination is practical but innovative, serious but experimental, and pulls the mind toward projects of renovation and reorganization.
Late night, the Moon clears Uranus and Saturn and turns its attentions instead to retrograde Venus in Scorpio, out of which drips a mixture of passions— pleasure and pain, hunger and satisfaction, attraction and repulsion.Horoscopes & Ongoing Influences
