Astrologer Patrick Arundell writes: “As assertive Mars turns retrograde in the sign of Aries until November 13 we may find that energy levels fluctuate. We might also lose our motivation regarding plans, meaning it could be time for a review and some key adjustments.”
Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, writes: “Mars retrograde starts on Wednesday, and while in Aries, things start to intensify for all zodiac signs.” She adds, “Both Virgo and Gemini are ruled by the planet Mercury which is intelligent, analytical, and meticulous. If you have any projects to complete, such as filing, getting a room in order, or conversing about a critical problem, Wednesday can be great for these things.”
Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explains the effects of Mars retrograde in Aries. Gilchrist writes “Mars retrograde ushers us into a time of delays, redos and intensified actions. What was surging forward on pure instinct will slow or stop. What began with a surge of passion will slow or stop.” She adds: “‘Slow and steady’ is your mantra now. If it’s meant to happen, a few delays won’t cancel it.”
Those born today are born under the Sun sign of Virgo (August 23-September 22).
Astrologer Georgia Nicols writes: “It’s encouraging to see that your hard work will start to pay off this year! Channel your energy and focus on building solid foundations now and for the future. Work with purpose. Physical exercise will be important, which is why you might want to explore something physical that you enjoy doing.”
