There are two significant events to note this October 2018! First of all, on the 2nd, Mars turns to retrograde motion, in Taurus and will not return to direct motion until the second week of December.
Depending on where you have Mars in your chart, this could have the effect of easing some of the tension in your life. And then on the October 3rd, the Sun is eclipsed by the New Moon in Libra, heralding a time of new beginnings.
Where those opportunities for a new start will be depends upon your Sun sign. So to see what this means for you, read on…
