Prepare for one of the most powerful astrological alignments of 2020. Mars goes retrograde starting September 9 and will stay in reverse motion until mid-November 2020. This Mars retrograde will look back at the transformative alignments we have had so far this year.
We’ve seen some major changes this year, and this retrograde will light them up again. Prepare for a burst of intense energy as Mars once again unleashes these powerful moments of astrological alignments.
Even the day of the Retrograde is significant this time. 9/9 is quite powerful numerically. The ninth day of the ninth month represents the completion of the lessons of the year. This is the time when we begin to realize what the Universe has taught us throughout the year. Understanding and awareness are now reaching higher levels.
The great impact of retrograde Mars:
The powerful energy of this retrograde means that it will also be felt globally. Mars will align with both Pluto and Saturn during this retrograde. This will trigger questions related to power, control, politics, and government. 2020 has been a year of radical change on a personal and global level. It dismantled the dark energies to help us reach a higher state of mind.
As retrograde Mars begins, there will be more power struggles, unrest, disruption, corruption, and its exposure, riots, and protests. Mars will trigger our fears to give rise to this chaos. But the blessing in disguise is that we have to purge these negative energies in order to evolve as a community.
On a personal level:
On a personal level, retrograde Mars is a time to reassess the direction of our journey. We will reflect on our actions and their alignment with the future world. We can take this time to re-evaluate our goals and find new ways to achieve them.
This retrograde is connected to the Mars retrograde in 2018. Look back and see how much you’ve grown. The themes you were working on two years ago will now reach completion.
When the planet of action turns opposite, we are bound to go through periods of lethargy and fatigue. We will lack the motivation to do our job, and much of it will be delayed. But Mars tries to give us time to really understand if our actions are aligned with our highest selves.
After November 13, when Mars stations direct, we will return to our normal rhythm. We may notice that the things we wanted to accomplish have improved.
Retrograde Mars and Mercury:
While Mars will be retrograde, Mercury will also change directions between October 13 and November 3. With these two retrograde planets, a sense of confusion and lack of direction will veil us. So now is the time to have faith in the Universe.
During this transition phase, delay all your major commitments and decisions. Wait for the planets to return to their place to gain clarity. If you try to navigate your way through this time, you will see how your thoughts have misled you. Take a break for a while and trust your intuition. Wait for the Universe to give you the green signal.
Retrograde Mars 2020 will show us what the year has been about. This will set the stage for the changes we need to make. Evolution is called upon to occur on an individual and global scale.
The best way to navigate this retrograde Mars is to take care of yourself and listen to your intuition. Balance your energy levels, set clear limits, and heal your root chakra. Patience will accompany you!
