A Mars/Pluto trine is one of the most successful planetary aspects you can hope to have. That's because the trine — a harmonizing energy in Astrology — harnesses the ambitious energy of Mars with the relentless drive of Pluto, thereby pushing you to exceed even your own personal expectations. Thankfully, the energy is not so much ruthless as it is persistent, and it's your perseverance against all odds that will bring the breakthrough that you've been looking for on Oct. 31. But bear in mind that trines — though always fortunate — also signal the need for protection, because the ancients believed that any stroke of luck made you the target of others' envy. Watch your back — because you're playing for keeps.

Hold on for dear life because changes will come fast and furious as pink slips fly and department heads change seats in a madcap game of musical chairs. Eclipse energy is dramatic, and an eclipse in the sign of the Scorpion can be intense and unrelenting. That's why you don't want to mess with it — especially since it's also the same energy that will push you up several rungs on the ladder of success.
