Mars Enters Leo, Mars Opposite Neptune, Mars Square Venus, Mercury Conjunct Saturn

Mars enters Leo on Saturday, October 5. The planet of Energy & Action leaves Cancer, its sign of debilitation, and moves into the Sun's sign. Mars is happy in Leo. This it the planet of Action in the sign of Rulers and Governments.
While in Leo, Mars will be opposite to and influenced by Neptune. The planet of Dreams and Illusions influencing the planet of Action is not good... especially considering the Actions of Government. Thus the situation with the US government shutdown is not likely to be resolved very soon. The exact opposition of Mars and Neptune is on Oct. 19. Mars will be in Leo until November 26.
Mars re-establishes a Square Aspect to Venus, now in Scorpio. The aspect is only a few degrees from exact at the beginning of the week, but becomes less exact as the faster-moving Venus pulls ahead later in the week. The significations of Venus will suffer some, such as achieving Agreement. Thus, another planetary combination which does not help resolve the current governmental dilemma.
Mercury is Conjunct Saturn, exact on Tuesday, October 8, @ 16 deg. Libra. The planet of Rational Thinking is conjunct the planet of Control and Delay. The result is Obstinate Thinking. Again, not a good combination for coming to compromise and resolving issues. This combination is further plagued by Rahu, the significator of Desire and Obsession, which is only a few degrees away from the Saturn-Mercury conjunction. Thus: Thinking which is both Obstinate and Obsessed. All of this is happening in the 11th house of the USA chart, the sector of the chart that indicates Congress.
