A bit of a grumpy start. The Moon squares the Sun at 2:23 am PST early Monday morning and then sails out into calm waters.
However, caution lights are up today as a challenging and often very difficult square begins to power up in the heavens. Aggressive Mars makes a challenging square to dangerous Pluto early Tuesday morning, which often generates violence, break downs, accidents, and arguments.
Notable is that Mars events tend to show up way ahead of the exact connection. Use caution today in traffic and with dangerous situations as Mercury Rx adds another confusing element to people and events on Monday and especially Monday night.
Pluto rules criminals; Mars rules firearm and aggression. I’ve got a hunch you’ll hear sirens in the city tonight.
Play it safe. As times change.
There’s a fresh breeze and new energy in the Skywatch Sunday morning as the Moon enters friendly air sign Aquarius at 3:19 am PST. (Remember we return to Standard Time at 2:00 am Sunday morning).
A kind-hearted Moon Venus sextile at 7:42 am PST should bring smiles to the breakfast table. But things may not go as planned on Sunday as the Moon squares Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, at 11:50 am, amplifying Mercury’s Retrograde tendency to cause problems.
However, that’s the last difficulty in the Skywatch on Sunday. Clear astrological skies follow for the rest of the day and night on Sunday. As times change.

Keep it simple Saturday morning.

Caution lights. A positive ringer, Moon conjunct optimistic Jupiter, exact at 7:29 am PDT, opens the door to good vibes this morning. But the door closes shut a minute later as Luna turns Void of Course until she enters dependable Capricorn at 7:38 pm Thursday night.
More difficult is that tricky Mercury turns Retrograde at 8:42 am. Problems with communications and transportation are all more likely over the next 20 days. Delays, mix-ups, and folks saying things they wish they hadn’t are also more likely until Mercury turns direct in motion on November 20.
Trick or treaters need to be careful in high traffic neighborhoods and with what goes into their bags of goodies as this Rx cycle is in Scorpio, which sometimes brings the creeps out who want to hurt people.
I hate to say that but better safe than sorry tonight.
As times change.
Last Chance. Green lights are up today, and you are advised to get your desk in order, and the important details handled as a confusing Mercury Retrograde cycle begins tomorrow.
