Mars’ Libra ingress on October 22nd adds more fuel to an already volatile situation. Mars activates and motivates, even in a sign that’s not know for being assertive. The time for indecision is over - the Uranus-powered New Moon and Mars may force your hand. Having said this, Libra-flavoured Mars acts indirectly and the dynamic of action/reaction will be crucial. Be aware of projection and return fire.
