Mixed signals. Morning hours are the best for important calls, meetings, and business. The Sun trines lucky and optimistic Jupiter at 9:04 am PDT encouraging agreements and compromise.
Caution lights kick on this afternoon as Mars begins a long Retrograde cycle at 3:23 pm. Any planet in Rx almost works against itself and often denies progress or success in the matters it rules. Mars is the leader, explorer, initiator who gives us the energy to put new plans into motion. When Mars is Rx our plans often don’t materialize, and we have to start over once Mars turns back direct in motion on November 13.
A better use of this time is to be working on a project you will unveil and initiate after the Rx cycle concludes. This particular Mars Rx cycle is in home sign Aries adding more difficulty to this period of time as it increases the desire to take action, and often without counting the cost or consequences.
Thus, accidents, fights, violence, and badly misguided actions along with mechanical breakdowns are all more likely in the weeks ahead. Fools rush in where angels fear to tread sums it up.
