Weekly Transit Watch for October 30 to November 5, 2022

The week begins with Mars stationing retrograde in Gemini on Sunday, October 30. From now until January 12, 2023, Mars retrograde in Gemini will make us feel mentally, socially, and emotionally restless. Prepare for frayed nerves and discombobulation during this period! Keep your wits about you, especially when engaging in frustrating conversations.

A day later, the sun in Scorpio will trine Juno in Pisces while Ceres in Virgo trines the North Node in Taurus. The watery trine allows both singles and couples to reimagine their romantic relationships. The catch is keeping your head above water to avoid drowning in the potential, the illusion, and even confusion. Meanwhile, the earthy trine provides a solid foundation for our fate and destiny to be nurtured. It may even be easier to gauge which relationships are meant to be part of our lives long-term.

By Tuesday, November 1, the first quarter moon in Aquarius will encourage us to do things our way. Luna is marching to the beat of its own drum during this lunation, so it might be time to free ourselves from any self-imposed or socially-imposed restrictions to let our freak flags fly. Since Vesta in Aquarius will also trine Mars retrograde in Gemini, this might be our cosmic cue to experiment with assertion, ambition, and curiosity. Tend to your inner unique flame by having a mutable mindset as to how to move forward.

Then Venus in Scorpio will oppose the North Node in Taurus (and subsequently conjunct the South Node in Scorpio) the following day. Venus is ready to fall back into her old ways thanks to the conjunction with the South Node. This may refer to former patterns, habits, routines, or mindsets that do not positively influence the long-term trajectory in love, money, or beauty. Luckily, the opposition with the North Node may act as a cosmic catalyst to seek greater comfort and security by abandoning old ways for greater intimacy. Use these aspects as a way to encourage yourself to get comfortable with the uncomfortable.

Shortly after, Mercury in Scorpio will trine Juno in Pisces, offering us an intuitive glance into a thought process or conversation that may pertain to the lasting likelihood of a romantic relationship. It could be a highly investigative trine, so pay attention to your gut feelings as you pinpoint how you feel about your love life! Meanwhile, Pallas in Cancer will trine Neptune retrograde in Pisces, which will encourage us to be a little more astute to our surroundings and relationships. Finally, Venus in Scorpio will sextile Ceres in Virgo, offering an opportunity to nurture healthier habits in love, beauty, and money.

At the end of the week, the sun in Scorpio will oppose the North Node in Taurus and conjunct the South Node in Scorpio while Venus in Scorpio opposes Uranus retrograde in Taurus. As the mysterious solar luminary works with the karmic nodes of fate and destiny, there might be a desire to slip back into shadow side aspects. Although tempting, it might be worthwhile to use the opposition between the North Node and the sun to empower radical transformation and self-work. Meanwhile, the wild child will throw the love goddess out of alignment. Opportunities in love might come up suddenly and seemingly out of the blue. Romantic relationships and financial opportunities could also turn on a dime! Be prepared for Uranus retrograde to liberate Venus from stagnancy, mystery, and control.
