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.

Watch your back — because you're playing for keeps.

It isn't easy converting a critic into an ardent supporter, and now that you have, you can expect him to sing your praises from the rooftops. This is the stamp of approval that you've been campaigning for, and it will make a world of difference.
