Warrior planet Mars has moved on from Aquarius (where it spent the last six months). Now in Pisces, Mars enters into a square aspect with Jupiter in Sagittarius. Playing a dominant role in the upcoming Full Moon in Gemini (Nov. 22), the Mars/Jupiter square can inflame enthusiasm, but also recklessness.

Meandering through Pisces, Mars is prone to wanderlust. This week can be especially tricky in harnessing your passion or excitement towards a specific cause or target. The Full Moon in Gemini this Thursday will only exacerbate this tendency. But this surge of mutability can be helpful for shifting our focus to contemplate possibilities in the blindspots.

Also, consider the need this week to take more than one course of action. But utilize some Mercury retrograde wisdom, which suggests doing extra research and asking critical questions before leaping. If you desperately want a specific outcome or realization at the moment, you'll find this week incredibly frustrating.

However, consider this the season to discover your options, and the choices you didn't know you had. Be sensitive to your environment and cautious with utilizing willfulness and force. Jupiter's upper square to Mars can give some us the illusion of limitless strength or good luck. In reality, there are definite limitations, so don't push your luck too far.
