Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Venus will be in the wings, watching all that is going on. She is Mars’ lover, and although they want to be together all the time, the universe keeps sending them on all kinds of assignments that keep them apart. On October 1, Venus will be in the perfect place in the sky to signal Mars in an attempt to tone him down a little. He can get very fired up, but Venus’ graceful loving touch can tone down his aggressiveness a little. Venus is the only one who can do that, so we have to see how successful her intervention with Mars will be. Venus is in your relationship house at the time (soon to leave) and will signal Mars through a private conversation.
If your birthday falls on January 29, plus or minus five days, you will be highly affected by the developments of this full moon. Watch your expenses coming up—there will be lots of news.
Mars is the energy planet that helps us compete well, especially in a business enterprise or athletics. It’s strong masculine energy that everyone—men or women—depend on to make a success of a new venture or relationship. Mars usually stays in any one part of the horoscope for six weeks, which is more than enough time to see big progress, but in 2020, Mars will stay six months, from June 27 to January 6, 2021. The reason for Mars’ long stay is that he went retrograde last month, on September 9, and will go direct on November 13.
New ventures that are begun with Mars retrograde rarely work out well. If you are planning an advertising or publicity campaign, it would be best to begin from November 13 onward, not before. Mars won’t stop being aggressive this month—you will see more of his aggressive behavior at the new moon, October 16.
