Mars in Aries: Mars came home to Aries on June 28, 2020, and collective egos have run high ever since. This is, however, a great time to get things done and demonstrate leadership abilities. Mars in Aries represents being in conflict with the Self and expressing the Self with true will power. There’s little in-between with this energy, so it’s important to periodically slow down and reflect, as well as refrain from becoming combative with others. It’s also important to manifest the will’s desires during this time because it represents a key time to achieve goals and set things in motion for the future.
Venus in Cancer: When Venus entered the sign of Cancer on August 7, 2020, she crawled into a little shell and became busy nurturing the organisms that live in there. In other words, our hearts are more in-tune with and focused-on home, safety, and family with this energy. We may seek ways to give to our loved ones and ways to protect them, depending on our values. Romance is also more likely to occur in the home, rather than in public places, and this would be an excellent time for a couple to rekindle their love of sharing a home together. Also, Venus in Cancer is an outstanding time to get pregnant, or a really scary time not to have protected sex!
Mercury in Virgo: When Mercury moved into the sign of Virgo on August 20, 2020, collective communication turned more analytical and objective. As the guiding/ruling planet of Virgo, Mercury is at home here, with all of the thoughtful air energies. Increased analytical thinking can be a very good thing for many people during this time, but it can also turn into being overly critical for many other people. Virgo enjoys research and patterns, seeking the objective, or out-of-self, observations about the world. When communications center on emotions and personal concerns, Virgo tends to depersonalize the information, which could be very difficult or tricky during this time, especially in romantic relationships.
