In the Stars October 30-November 6, 2022 . . . Shining light on the astrology of the week


The Sun is in the deep emotional waters of Scorpio. Halloween, the Day of the Dead, and all Soul's Day are upon us. These are days to honor deceased loved ones. Take some solitude in this deep autumn time.


We are in the midst of eclipse season. The Total Lunar Eclipse occurs on election day November 8th at 16 degrees of Taurus. This season's lunar eclipse is an extremely potent, turbulent day astrologically. We all know the political stakes are at fever pitch. The Saturn-Uranus square will figure prominently in the November 8th eclipse as the Sun and Moon will conjunct Uranus, and thus square Saturn. Election Day in the United States is extremely tense, and may bring unexpected twists and turns. Those with planets in fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius) between 13-19 degrees tropically will be most impacted.


Mars in Gemini will turn retrograde on Sunday, October 30th for several months until January 12th, encouraging us to re-work old projects. Continue to read, converse, write, listen, and learn.

A message of Mars in Gemini is that words can be windows or walls, as named and described by Colin Bedell in this article in The Mountain Astrologer: https://www.astro.com/astrology/tma_article221025_e.htm.

Below is a list of some recent events that illustrate the turbulent times and big changes that the eclipses and the final Saturn-Uranus square may have influenced:
