Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
Mars will remain in Aries an unusually long time, not the usual six weeks, but rather he will remain in Aries six months, from June 27, 2020, until January 6, 2021. During that time, you may be working on a very new type of project, possibly in high tech or with a start-up in a brand-new industry. Whatever you do, it appears you will be turning onto a new road, as a pathfinder, into a realm where few have any experience. Mars will be in your third house of communication, so you may be negotiating a number of contracts. If we didn’t have a pandemic, you would be traveling to see clients out of town, but I feel you may be doing a lot of Zoom conferences instead.
Mars only retrogrades every two years—that will be this year, 2020, from September 9 to November 13.
We always feel the retrogrades of Venus, Mercury, and Mars more directly than we do the retrogrades of the outer planets Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, and Pluto.
Mars is such an important planet for another reason. Mars is the timekeeper of the zodiac—he decides what you will focus on each month. Also, being the high energy planet and warrior, Mars teaches you how to compete effectively—he gives you the will to win by working hard and keeping your eye on the ball. This will be doubly true with Mars in his home placement of Aries (Mars rules Aries).
When Mars retrogrades, he languishes, making it a terrible time to launch a new product or service. You unconsciously depend on Mars to help you carry your hard work further and faster, but when he is missing in action, as Mars will be in September through much of November, launching your new product or service becomes arduous, with many corrections to that product necessary.
If you planned to debut a new product or service during Mars retrograde, see if you can move the launch up to August, an excellent month.
