Mars went retrograde this week.
It feels surreal writing about the red planet while fires are raging out of control here in the United States.
For the next two months until November 13th, Mars will be retrograde in his home sign of Aries. (And will remain in Aries until January 2021.)
Mars is the sign of passion, aggression, action and courage.
Mars in Aries is a planet and sign placement with so much vitality it initiates sprouts to push through the Earth.
When a planet is retrograde, the energy is directed inward for a more internal process.
During this retrograde, for the next two months, your drive, vitality, and ambitions will be re-examined and you might sometimes feel as if you can't move forward with your plans.
Tempers will simmer. Pressure will mount.
It's important to use this energy to channel your anger in positive ways.
If you feel angry, it is your spirit telling you that you deserve better.
Allow your anger to fuel your actions to demand more for yourself and the people or issues you care about.
Reconnect with your passions.
Understand what lights you up.
Every single planet has gone retrograde in 2020. This is a year where the Universe is saying you need to spend more time with yourself to discern what's important.
This is a potent time. Use it wisely.
Enjoy the Energies!
