This is a big week for Aries, in particular, but for all of us in some capacity. Aries ruling planet, Mars stations retrograde at 28 degrees Aries and will motion backwards until mid November. Since Aries are highly motivated people who like to blaze new trails and accomplish, this will signal a time to be more reflective and circumspect; neither of which is an easy or natural task for Aries. Each of us has an Aries section of our lives and we will all feel the slowing down process as a result. This time span embodies a time to move slower and more cautiously. It will not be a great time to begin something new, as you will probably be frustrated with the slow progress. It is a good time to take stock of where you are and lay the groundwork for where you’d like to be in the future. These retrogrades happen about once every two years and the more we are apprised of them the better we can adapt to the events they present. Where is that happening in your life? Do you know?

Shortly after the Mars retrograde, Jupiter will station direct for the first time since it stationed retrograde back in May of 2020. Jupiter is interpreted as the great benefactor and the planet that embodies optimism, growth and abundance. While Mars may be putting on the brakes, Jupiter is offering up prizes and opportunities. This sounds like a cruel trick and in some ways it can be seen as frustrating. Or, it can be regarded as a time to fully vet opportunities that come your way so that you are best prepared to make the right decision once you gain traction again. Jupiter will trine (harmonious) the Sun in Virgo and earth signs may feel the presence of good fortune and harmonious connections. THis is always the conundrum of astrology as the universe gives and takes away simultaneously. In that magical mix of influence lies great potential if you are mindful of the aspects and can pivot to use them to your greatest advantage. Where will you feel it?

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You are probably groaning that things have slowed down for you. All the headway you may have made to date may be put on hold as your ruling planet, Mars stations retrograde until November. Do not despair, though, the universe may simply be guiding you to slow down to avoid acting impulsively. Think of it as a gift.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your plans may be coming to fruition but with a set of concessions that you may have to make in order to see things correctly. This should be an excellent week to express your creativity. If an idea comes to you for a creative idea, you would be wise to act, even if it seems out of character.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21): The Moon slips into Gemini by the end of the week and you may be eager to move forward on a project. There is great potential for a creative endeavor especially with your ruling planet, Mercury moving through fellow air sign, Libra. Use your words to get your thoughts out and see what comes of them.
CANCER (June 22-July 22): You may still be witnessing significant changes regarding your career this week. Mars is moving through that area of your life and even though it is currently in retrograde, this time may allow you to reconsider jobs you might not have considered before. Why not take a chance on something new and different?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Venus has stopped by to visit Leo for a few weeks. This influence puts a special shine on you and all you encounter. Harmony and beauty are key characteristics so don’t be surprised if things go well for you with others especially. This should be a good week to get out and travel and be seen.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Sun is meandering its way through Virgo and it is your time of the year. Topics about finances and other investment options may be looming large as you research alternatives for safely securing your investments. This should be an excellent time to reach out for some outside advice on how to proceed financially.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): This should be a good week for you to negotiate. Whether you are working out an arrangement with your partner or securing a pathway forward for your family, the times are ripe for discussing options. Mars is moving through your relationship sector and you may be tweaking your roles with your partner.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov 21): Watch your temper this week, especially with significant partners or close friends. Events of the times may prompt you to act impulsively and without restraint. You don’t want to have to grovel an apology so why not pause before you respond. Your stubbornness can thwart your progress. Mars can be your friend or foe.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Expert to be a little circumspect about your creative endeavors. Mars will be in retrograde in fellow fire sign, Aries and your creative output is where you might feel the slowing down. Not to worry though, as this might be a great time to revise what you have going on. Glance back to see what you could change.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Family projects and connections may feel a little burdensome perhaps over the next few weeks. Obligations, commitments, and the like are all up for reconsideration, so breathe deeply and review what makes sense and what needs to be recalibrated. This period of time may be useful to bolster your commitment to your own personal growth.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may be feeling a quiet subtle shift in your views during this season. Are things going as you want? Or is it time to try a new tact? Experimentation is always useful, especially if you find something new and even more appealing as a result. Redouble your efforts on written words and research.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): This should be an excellent week to review your financial holdings. Are you reaping the right rewards? Business connections may be challenging, so be aware of that stressor. However, don’t overthink your approach as you could get bogged down in unnecessary details. Review and seek outside advice before making long-term changes.
