Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
We need to talk about your finances for a moment. Last month, Mars moved into Aries on June 27 and immediately started forcing up your spending. Mars is touring Aries, an entrepreneurial sign, so you may be investing in a new business or getting ready to introduce a new product or service to the marketplace. Aries is the sign that acts as a pathfinder to all things new and innovative, so you may enjoy getting experience with something very new, especially since so few people have that type of experience. Aries is also the sign of the warrior, so Mars will tutor you on the value of competing well with energy and drive.
Of course, there are many reasons why your costs may be mounting. You may already have an inkling of what expenses they might be.
Here is vital information: Mars will retrograde from September 9 to November 13, considered a terrible time to introduce a new product or service. It is also not a favorable time to start a new romantic relationship. Be as productive as you can in July and August, but know as you get to the end of August, you will see life slow down noticeably.
Here’s something to help you understand Mars retrograde: When Mars is healthy and orbiting at normal speed, he takes two days to travel one degree. As he gets ready to retrograde at the end of August and early September, Mars will take 12 days to travel one degree. You will be walking through glue, and the simplest tasks will seem arduous. As you get deeper into the Mars retrograde, say, in October, he will speed up a bit, but at best he will still take four days to go one degree—double his normal time of two days to travel one degree.
