Mars Retrograde is Coming: Here’s Your Horoscope for the Week of September 7

Weekly Horoscope

Mars is in retrograde this coming September 10, which means it’s essential to pay much closer attention to your relationships and your professional life—the aspects of your life that the planet Mars rules over.

It’s highly probable that you will end up arguing much more frequently with your partner during this time, especially when they aren’t meeting your expectations or when communication issues arise. You may also experience a lack of ambition and drive to achieve your goals from being under constant stress due to the current pandemic, as well as other social and political issues.

Just remember that all this will come to pass and that even the darkest nights will end with the sun shining brightly over on the horizon.

Here’s how the energies of this planetary retrograde will affect you this week:

Aries (March 20 to April 19)

Living in pure fantasies and illusions of grandeur isn’t healthy for you when you’re doing so to escape from dealing with the discomforts of reality. You have to get your head back down from the clouds and face your problems head-on. You may also feel that there are too many things you want to do, but you don’t know which one to take. Choose the one that’s most fulfilling for you emotionally.

Taurus (April 19 – May 20) 

If you’ve recently achieved a long-term goal, this is the time for you to sit back and relax, relishing in the fruits of your labor and reveling in your success. Celebrate and be proud of all that you’ve accomplished! There may be a whole new world waiting out there from here, but don’t pressure yourself to rush. After all, you deserve this moment of rest.

Gemini (May 20 – June 21)

Remember that you don’t always need to be in a hurry to make your goals happen. Take this moment to build the foundations of your plans step-by-step and distance yourself from toxic situations so that you can be free of unnecessary worries and stress. Attract more positivity and passion into your life by sharing your talents with the world and by being open to learning more about yourself in the process.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You may have been putting a lot of energy and effort into a particular person or situation and it’s starting to wear you down, especially when you realize that you’re not getting anything in return. Stop sacrificing time and energy on pleasing others. You have to start being true to yourself! Take this time to prioritize balancing your work and home life too. After all, work isn’t everything! If things aren’t going according to plan right now, trust that there will always be other opportunities to get to where you need to be.

Leo (July 22 – August 23)

You may be feeling lost at the moment as you begin to question yourself and your ambitions. Despite making efforts to listen to your heart, you are unable to receive a clear message, leaving you stuck in place with no clear direction where to go. However, you must not give up! Trust that clarity will come in time. For now, focus on working hard on your tasks and responsibilities, and keep your eyes peeled for opportunities that may come your way!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You may have become consciously aware of your tendencies to be a toxic or negative person to others (or even to yourself) sometimes, especially in stressful or anxious situations. Be more mindful of how you speak to people and how you deal with negative thoughts. More often than not, the things you’re worried about are actually not that bad after all. So be more kind to yourself.

Libra (September 22 – October 23)

Accomplished a goal recently? Congratulations! No matter how small an achievement you think it was, it still merits you a pat on the back. Enjoy the fruits of your labor and take time to appreciate all the people who’ve helped you along the way. As you move onward towards bigger goals, always remember to stay true to yourself and your values.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

With every problem you may face, you have to speak your truth and fight for what you believe in instead of compromising your values just to appease others. At the same time, you must exercise compassion and understand what other people are coming from especially when their opinions or manner of doing things differ from yours. Everyone wants to make their voice heard, after all. But even so, you have to stand your ground no matter what.

Sagittarius (November 21 – December 21)

You may have been trying so hard to please people that you’ve started to neglect your own needs, affecting your mental health in the process. Remember, it’s okay to put yourself first sometimes. It doesn’t make you any less of a person! Always be mindful about ending up in a negative train of thought, too; focusing too much on your problems won’t do you or the situation at hand any good. Adopt a more enthusiastic mindset and surround yourself with people who actually care about you and will inspire you to take care of yourself.

Capricorn (December 21 – January 19)

You are now entering a period of transformation especially now that you’re freeing yourself from things that have been holding you back from moving positively forward. Change is definitely coming into your life—embrace all that is headed your way! Just take caution from here on out so that you don’t revert back to the kind of person you used to be.

Aquarius (January 19 – February 18)

You are feeling extra proud to be acknowledged for your talents and this added confidence you’ve gained is motivating you to keep pushing through every obstacle that may come your way. Be comforted with the knowledge that you are on the right path. Take time to appreciate and express your sincerest gratitude to the people who’ve helped you along your journey! Of course, be proud of yourself too. You deserve all the good things you’re getting right now.

Pisces (February 18 – March 20)

You are feeling extra passionate and committed to making your dreams come true, but you must always be mindful about balancing your impulses with rational thinking. The act-first-think-later strategy may end up doing you more harm than good. This doesn’t mean that you should withhold yourself from grabbing all the opportunities that are opening up to you, though. You just have to make sure that they’re worth your time and effort!
