October begins with Mars continuing in Pisces, but now back in direct motion, finally after two months in retrograde status. No other planet hates being in retrograde condition quite like Mars does, as Aries are well aware since Mars is your ruling planet. Mars may have been chomping at the bit during the retrograde phase, but this month it makes no relevant major aspects. Probably just as well considering that pent-up energy.

You’ll do better as a self-starter during this cycle. A family member’s authoritative stance can be alienating when Saturn turns retrograde on the 25th. Domestic responsibility and obligations can weigh heavy on your shoulders.
