Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
To make matters a little worse, in the middle of the coming Mars retrograde (which happens every two years), you will have Mercury retrograde again, from October 13 to November 3.
The only way I can describe this coming period, starting September 9, is as a train wreck for new business introductions. I am using casual language I don’t often use so that I can get your attention—but it’s true. It would be a disaster if you bring out a product or service then. I realize that you may have hoped to be ready for the holiday shopping season to introduce it in September through November, but I feel you should launch in August if that’s possible.
Let’s say you don’t work on any product introductions. I still feel that any campaign you work on, if you are asked to estimate the parameters of the project, you can be sure it will take more time and money than anyone assumes—so, build more in to keep the stress down. If you can get the project done earlier, then surprise the client with a lower invoice later. You likely will need approvals from the client or your boss as you go through the job, but when Mars is retrograde, the pace slows so much it’s like watching sap drip from a tree.
There are other retrogrades you need to know about:
Pluto went retrograde on April 25 and will remain that way until October 4.
Saturn went retrograde May 10 and will go direct September 28.
Jupiter went retrograde on May 14 and will go direct September 12.
