Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
I hope I have convinced you not to launch anything during Mars retrograde! Mars will teach you and help you compete well, so when you want to be the best you can be, you need to avoid Mars out of phase. Mars will overlap part of the time I see a second wave of the coronavirus. That is due to surface at the end of September or the first week of October and extend through mid-December, when, according to the math, we all will likely be back in a frozen state.
To make things a little more complicated, Mars’ brother Mercury started to retrograde last month on June 17 and will turn direct July 12. Mercury rules contracts and agreements, so hopefully you’ll be able to sign any important papers after July 12 rather than before. If you need to buy anything expensive, like a car, or need to close on a house, do so after Mercury goes direct, not before—I like July 16.
Right now, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Pluto are all retrograde. That’s quite a number of sleepy planets. Venus went direct on June 24 (after being retrograde since May 12), so that will help you see progress on writing and speaking projects and also those involving your home.
Mars will stay in your second house of income much longer than usual. The normal time Mars spends in any one sign is six weeks, but this year, Mars will remain in Aries for six months, until January 6, 2021. If you have prepared to spend quite a bit of money soon anyway—you need to buy a car, new computer, a refrigerator, or send a check for tuition—then you already know what is coming. However, if you have no idea why you would be spending more, you may want to space out your expenditures until you get the lay of the land.
