Astrological Almanac for Tuesday, October 13, 2020
#dailystars #dailyastro #astrology #wheresthemoon
The Sun opposes Mars today, bringing a distinct tone of confrontation that may turn into conflict. Mars in Aries, though retrograde, is far stronger than the Sun in Libra, so it’s not at all a good time to ask for favors or honors (promotions or raises, e.g.). Your “boss” isn’t in a position to grant them, and they will just think you’re being pushy.
The Moon trines Uranus, adding to the potentially surprising and explosive energies of the day. She’ll conjoin Venus later tonight, as the fiery energy starts to calm down a bit.
At 9:04pm, Mercury is officially retrograde, as it is three times a year. Each time it lasts for about three weeks. This time, Mercury goes direct on Nov 3 (Election Day in the USA).
