Mars Turns Retrograde: September 09, 2020

Dale Osadchuk

2020 - Mars retrograde in Aries Sept 09-6.22 pm EDT to Nov 13-7.36 pm EST

We all have an Inner Universe that contains the planets and stars on the day we were born. As above so below. When a planet in the outer Universe activates us it is the opportunity for us to become empowered on our life path. Wherever you have Aries (the I AM self) in your Inner Universe is where you are being asked by Mars to activate your Spiritual Warrior.

Mars first entered Aries (inspired new beginnings) on June 27. He is the planet of motivation and action and in Aries, his own sign, he is asking us to create a new vision for our lives. But he is also the planet of anger and aggressive behaviour. Mars is life force energy. Anger destroys our balance. Mars is associated with The Tarot Constellation The Chariot, mastery through change. He is the 16th card, the Tower of Destruction. But in Aries he activates the Tarot Constellation of The Emperor, life force and realization of power. Not ego power but Soul Power. 2020 is the year of the Emperor. July was the time when protests against injustice became very explosive (explosion is another Mars characteristic). On July 25 when Mars reached 15 degrees Aries he entered his Retrograde shadow. That is the degree he will reach on Nov 13 when he moves forward. The Shadow period begins when a planet enters the degree it will eventually move forward at and the Shadow ends when it reaches the degree it went retrograde at. For Mars at retrograde he is at 28 degrees Aries. He will reach that degree again on 02 Jan 2021. So yes this is quite the lengthy journey.

Mars Retrograde

When planets retrograde (from our perspective on Earth) they stop their forward motion and travel backward over the path they just covered. So that is why we are highlighting July 25. In August Mars in Aries was very active as he joined Eris, Goddess of discord and conflict, and Black Moon Lilith, individual integrity and spiritual illumination vs deception and illusion, both in Aries. From Aug 04 to 24 Mars squared Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn all retrograde in Capricorn (authority and society). The angry protests intensified. The planets in the Capricorn cluster are staring to change direction forward as Mars retrogrades. Jupiter direct on Sept 12/Saturn on Sept 29/Pluto on Oct 05. Mars will again square these three and join Eris and Black Moon Lilith starting Sept 29 to Oct 19. What will happen? I do not know but I hope everyone likes fireworks!!!  The Sun will be in Libra, peace and harmony, from Sept 22 to Oct 22. Libra is the mediator. It is found on The Tarot Constellation of The High Priestess, Balanced Judgment Through Intuitive Awareness. So we may find calm in the storm. But the Sun will also square Jupiter/Pluto/Saturn from Oct 11 to the 18th. Squares asks us to change and find new ways of doing things. The Sun also opposes Mars Rx in Aries on Oct 13 (finding balance between self and others).

Retrograde planets ask us to review, re-evaluate, release what is not working, and revision our vision.  Mars does not like going backward and neither does Aries. But it is the opportunity to discover our True Power if we are willing to explore our Inner Universe. Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) is going to support that inner journey. He will turn retrograde Oct 13 in Scorpio (healing, release, transformation) until Nov 03 when he moves direct. But his retrograde shadow begins on Sept 22 when he is at 25 degrees Libra. That is the day of Equinox, balance and equality. I know this has been a lot of astrological language. Just know the time ahead is the doorway to infinite positive opportunities to becoming empowered.

Animal Totems

In the Northern Hemisphere our Animal Totem guides for Mars in Aries are Falcon, clarity of vision, and Red Tailed Hawk, Spiritual Messenger. Pay attention to messages coming your way on this journey. For Libra we are guided by Crow, sacred law and justice and fairness for all, and Raven, magic and entering The Mysteries. They are reversed for the Southern Hemisphere. The Capricorn cluster is guided by Snow Goose, commitment to following your dreams and Soul Purpose. In the Southern Hemisphere Capricorn is guided by Flicker Woodpecker who guides us through life’s transitions.

Wherever you find yourself on this powerful journey know you are supported by The Universe. Ask for help and it will be given.

Namaste and blessings,

Dale
