Astrologer Nadia Gilchrist of Ruby Slipper Astrology explores the significance of Mars retrograde in Aries trine Vesta in Leo. Gilchrist writes: “Delayed or intensified actions (Mars Rx) are given extra focus (Vesta) and therefore support a creation or area of pride. Slowing down or giving something a second shot will fuel a flame. This is about intensified courage or deliberate (but measured) assertiveness that enables what is most sacred.”

Astrologer Aria Gmitter of Your Tango, gives her love forecast, advising: “Venus in Virgo harmonizes with Uranus in Taurus.
