Welcome to your ★ COSMIC WEATHER REPORT ★ for October, 2020.

MARS is still retrograde for the whole month, in YOUR sign, directly affecting your solar 1st House of SELF, Physical Body and First Impressions.

Mars, your ruler, continious its retrograde motion, affecting your energy, vitality, temper and your alertness in general. Mabilis na mapagod, mabilis pa ma-pikon. Take extra care, dear Aries, you are the bravest of all, but it’s best now to choose your battles! (Click here to review your 2020 Mars Retrograde walkthrough.)

On the 2nd, a FULL MOON happens too, in your first house of SELF, Physical Body and First Impressions.

Full Moons help us process endings, so beginnings can occur. This month’s full Moon is conjunct the asteroid/comet Chiron, known to astrology as the “wounded healer”. This day can be intense kaya it’s best to prepare. May element of hapdi ito, somehow showing feelings na akala natin ok na, hindi pa pala. Yung mga insecurities, naglalabasan. Now is a great time to fine tune the self, to release and let go of whatever it is that is holding you back, this time in terms of your physical body, and how you present yourself to the world.  When you see yourself in the mirror, masaya ka ba? Kung hindi, bakit? Make a list of everything about yourself that you are unhappy about, so you know exactly what you need to release! 

on the 3rd, VENUS enters your solar 6th House of Daily Routines, Health, and Service. 

Gagaan ang pakiramdam towards co-workers with Venus here, which is very much welcomed, lalo na’t mainit ang ulo mo recently due to Mars being retrograde. The next 3 weeks is also great time to focus on your health, as the connection between mind and body is heightened. Yung iba puro mental work, nakalimutan na ang katawan. Yung iba naman, puro work-out, pero mentally, very drained and exhausted. Now is the time to balance things out. Venus here also adds a little bit of ease in your daily errands, kaya mas swabe and productive ang general atmosphere. Be careful with sweets, kasi pag nandito si Venus, nagkakaroon ng craving sa matatamis!

From the 6th-11th, a retrograde MARS (energy, action) squares PLUTO (constriction, limitation), for the 2nd of 3 passes.

Expect to feel intense tension and friction between your solar 1st House of SELF and Physical Body and your solar 10th House of Career. The energy is volatile kaya actively focus on staying away from harm. Remember that haste makes waste, so be careful and deliberate in your wor, para hindi paulit-ulit. Parang sasabog ang pakiramdam ngayon, so if possible, avoid confrontations for now, especially with authority figures.

On the 14th, MERCURY turns RETROGRADE in your  solar 8th House of Transformation, Intimacy, and Joint Finances/Ventures. 

With Mercury Retrograde, communication breakdown is the common theme. Naku, mag iinarte ang mga printer and other gadgets for communicating, kaya be extra patient. Kung may important messages, twice i-send. Hassle din mag travel ngayon. Iwas na muna, kung hindi naman essential. After all, asa gitna pa tayo ng pandemic.

Mercury turns retrograde in your house of intimacies and other people’s money. Be careful with accepting or giving investments, and other financial arrangements that you may have with partners. Iwasan makipag away dahil sa pera, pero don’t shy away from whatever discontent the retrograde is showing you. After all, this is good time to revise, revisit and reassess current joint endeavors – is the set-up still functioning as intended? If not, what points are in need of maintenance? In the area of intimacy, are you still satisfied? This may also be a point for discussion, so paghanadaan mo na ito!

On the 16th, a NEW MOON happens in your solar 7th House of One-on-one interaction, Relationships, and Committed Partnerships.

New Moons are times of the month when we plant intentions, consciously or not, so its best to be mindful, para the intentions we set are deliberate. This New Moon energy brings into focus your need for someone to lean and rely on, and also your need to take care of someone. However, it is opposite a retrograding Mars, kaya the energy may feel a bit volatile, hostile, even.  Maybe there are realizations due to difficulties, and then you set the intention based on the opposite of what you are feeling at the moment. 

Kung may sweetheart na, this energy can help you revive your partnership, even if the process may seem bleak for the meanwhile. What do you need to do para mas maging smooth sailing ang relationship ninyo? How do you compromise without pushing yourself into a relationship gridlock? This energy will help you manifest, kaya take the time to reflect, conjure up a wishlist. Supported ng Universe ang mga beginnings na ito! It may be difficult but it’s important to trust the process!

On the 20th, a retrograde MERCURY passes opposite URANUS, the planet of surprises.

This is a good day for troubleshooting, kasi flashes of brilliance, and solutions that are out of the box may appear now, out of the blue. However, unexpected information from the past, either information missing  or thought to be hidden, may suddenly resurface. Mahirap magpigil ng bibig ngayon, kaya be extra careful about your conversations. You may say things that are inappropriate, causing awkwardness, at the very least. Remember too that Mars is retrograde, so conflict can escalate quickly. Kung walang magandang sasabihin, quiet na muna, for now lang naman. Remember, less talk, less mistake! 

On the 23rd, the SUN enters your solar 8th House of Transformation, Intimacy, and Joint Finances/Ventures. 

The main focus now finally settles in your intimacy sector,  which will be highly activated for the next 30 days. Are you getting enough depth and fulfillment in your partnerships? When it comes to finances, magastos ba si sweetheart masyado, wala kayong maipon? Or baka naman ikaw ang magastos! The recent events showed you the importance of being financially prepared, kaya naman ngayon, it’s time to set things in order. This is indeed an excellent time to review and update the budget or financial plan of any of your joint ventures/businesses, kasi insights that come up now will be truly valuable. Now, you will want to discuss things that you may not be comfortable discussing otherwise, so take advantage of this!

On the 31st, a FULL MOON happens in your solar 2nd House of Personal Income/Finances, Possessions, and Self-Worth.

This month closes with a blue Moon, a second Full Moon, this time in your 2nd house, dear Aries! Money and security are very big concerns at the moment, and understandably so. These prompt realizations about what is working and what is not working, in terms of your attitude towards personal income, and just money, in general. With all these uncertainties happening, ready ka ba financially? Anong pag-uugali when it comes to earning and spending, ang kailangan mo baguhin? What do you need to change and let go of, in order to feel safer in your ability to provide for yourself and your dependents? Important things to ponder on, during this time!

GOOD LUCK, ARIES! See you next month!
