OCTOBER

25 – A SOLAR ECLIPSE happens in your 4th House (Home, Family, Roots and Land).

Some of you may change their residence.

From the 30th (until January 13)- MARS turns RETROGRADE in your 11th House (Friendships, Groups, Organizations, Gains)

Mars retrograde restricts energy and forward movement, making it difficult to accomplish tasks. Maximum effort usually yields minimal results. This is not the time to start something new. Instead, it is a good time to pause and take a break, so instead of starting new initiatives, it may be more productive to improve upon existing ones. Time to reflect first, before going full speed ahead!

NOVEMBER

8 – A LUNAR ECLIPSE happens in your 10th House (Career, Profession, Reputation and Public Persona).

Some kind of project or process regarding your profession and/or career, and public persona may be coming to a close now. This is a period that brings in a clearer picture of what works, and what doesn’t, in terms of your career and general life direction. A change of status may also happen, for example, one either gets married, or gets annuled. Perhaps you become a parent, changing the way the world sees you.  Maybe you leave a current job, after realizing it doesn’t serve your truth anymore. Regardless of what happens, always look at the glass as half full – whatever ends, ends because it gave you the lesson you need already, and because you need more room to hold space for better things coming your way!

DECEMBER

21 – Winter Solstice
