Horoscopes are the general understanding of the energy as related to a person’s sun and/or rising sign. It is a great way to get your feet wet in the understanding of astrology, but it is the shallowest representation of astrology. Your personal astrology is far more complex than what a horoscope will reveal, but a horoscope can be a great quick check-in with the energy.

Aries Sun and Rising Weekly Horoscope Sep 7 – 13 2020

This week the sun is still in Virgo, your 6th house, shining a light on your health, reality, and day-to-day life. Jupiter is about to go direct on the 12th which is an overall positive. Mercury is in Libra now, focusing all its questioning on our relationships, but for Aries, the focus is on Mars, which is about to go retrograde in its home sign, your sign, something that hasn’t happened since 1988.

I think, for you, the main thing I want to say, or warn you about, as we go into this retrograde, is that you are about to be challenged to let go of things you think you want. It may even feel like a season of defeat. The most important thing is to keep your focus on your end game, and to know that God has your back.

I would encourage you not to get discouraged, the universe is going to pull you out of things (relationships, jobs, etc) that don’t identify with your life purpose. Be okay with the things that you will lose, because you will gain more than ever by accepting the loss and moving on.

If you keep pushing against the tides for the next three months, you’re going to get battered as Mars makes alignments with Saturn, Pluto and Jupiter. Jupiter coming direct on the 12th is an overall positive, but for you, it will be showing that there’s a lot more to look at. Have you been playing it too small?

There is no way around Mars retrograde, for Aries specific, like I said, you’re going to be seeing things leave your life. But that’s opening you up to new things, things that are more fully aligned with your path.

Sun oppose Neptune in your 12th house is going to feel like a lot of loss. You’re going to feel defeated, but you are not. Try to see it more as you are merely retreating from the battles that are not going to win the war you’re wanting to win in this lifetime. That’s God’s protection.

As you go into this week and the next three months, try to get a higher perspective on your life choices, the things you’ve aligned yourself with and committed to. It is never too late to make a different choic,e and deciding for yourself to move on is always a lot better than waiting on the universe to pry it out of your death grip. And for Aries specifically, that’s what Mars retrograde is going to look like.
