Mars is in Aries from June 27, 2020-January 6, 2021.
Brace yourself again. Mars enters Aries, and he’s here for a loooong stay – 6 months to be exact.
The good news is that Mars is not yet in the shadow zone (it will enter the shadow on July 26th, 2020) so you still have one month of Mars in domicile – which is a great place to be for Mars – and a great time for you to take bold action on your projects.
Mars goes retrograde on September 10th, 2020 at 28° Aries. Mars goes direct 2 months later, on November 14th at 15° Aries.
Although Mars is retrograde for 2 months only, in 2020 Mars spends a record of 6 months in Aries, the sign of its rulership.
That’s an unusually long amount of time – Mars spends on average only 6 weeks in a sign! Because it spends so much time in one sign, that particular area of our chart ruled by Aries will be especially emphasized in the 2nd part of the year. If you also have planets or angles (ascendant, IC, descendant, or midheaven) in Aries, even more so.
Mars retrograde is a good time to assess our actions, how we take initiative (or don’t), how we assert our will (or don’t) and in general, to understand what really drives and motivates us.
From September to November, take your time to reflect on the fine line between action and reaction, and discover what’s really worth doing and what not.
