Hey there, it’s Luna!
Have you suddenly started to feel more motivated?
If you haven’t yet, you should expect too soon, because Mars is entering Aries today and is waking up quickly from its dreamy stay in Pisces.
When Mars enters Aries, we are more inclined to act on our desires instantly!
Now is the time to explore new possibilities and unrealized desires. Even if you’re not sure how to go about getting what you want, this is the time to start putting yourself out there.
Don’t worry about having the perfect landing just yet, right now, you’re cleared for take off!
Leaping Before You Look
Mars in Aries is impulsive. This influence can make us accident prone, susceptible to knee-jerk reactions and making decisions that we might regret later, once we’ve had a chance to think it through.
Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, learns through trial and error by making bold moves and ramming their head against obstacles. Sometimes this is the only way to discover the path forward. Expect some tumbles as you boldly explore new possibilities. The desires you explore will be up for revision and refinement when Mars goes retrograde this September, so don’t be afraid to dive in and reorient yourself later.
An Opportunity For Redirection
Mars usually stays in a sign for about two months. However Mars will be going retrograde right before leaving Aries this September, so it will remain in Aries until January of 2021.
Unlike Mercury, which retrogrades three to four times a year, Mars only goes retrograde every two years! So the next 6 months will be an important time where you can become crystal clear on the best use of your energy, what motivates you, and what you truly desire out of life and your relationships.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
~ Exploring New Perspectives ~
It’s time to fly, dear Leo. Faraway lands are calling, and while the pandemic complicates matters, you can channel your passion for freedom into a mind-expanding outlet. Learn another language, study foreign culture or philosophy. You might find yourself falling for somebody from another country or with a background quite different from your own. Any new relationship that forms under this influence will help you broaden your horizons.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
~ Exploring New Approaches to Intimacy ~
It can’t get anymore clear than this, dear Virgo. This transit is all about sex for you. Mars in Aries adds intensity and immediacy to your desires, and you go after what you want head first. This isn’t your usual style, but you are emboldened under this influence. As long as you don’t overwhelm the recipient of your affection, this influence can bring you and your partner to new depths of intimacy.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
~ Exploring New Partnership Experiences ~
Partnership is on your mind during this influence. You are motivated to experience a meaningful connection with someone close to you. You might find that it is your partner, or a close associate who is expressing the energy of Mars in Aries more than you are. In this case, you’re welcome to relax and come along for the ride, so long as it’s also where you want to go!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
~ Exploring New Routines ~
Has anyone told you how fit you’re looking lately? If they haven’t, you’ll probably start hearing it soon. Mars in Aries is motivating you to get into a steady routine of working out and eating right. Look for romance to spark at the gym, your local coffee shop, your work, or anywhere else you visit on a regular basis. You won’t have to go out of your way to discover an exciting, new connection.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
~ Exploring New Forms of Pleasure ~
Right now you’re driven to experience everything that gives you pleasure. Creative expression on every level — whether making art, or making love — is at the forefront of your agenda. You won’t want to be bogged down with too many tasks under this influence. Instead, you will find opportunities to enjoy the sweeter, more sensual aspects of life. Try not to stir up any drama in your pursuit of pleasure.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
~ Exploring New Ways To Feel Secure ~
You’re focused on your home and family under this influence. You will feel protective of your loved ones, and may be directing your energy toward creating a safer and more stable environment. Right now, nothing is sexier to you than nesting with your partner or romantic interest, eating your favorite comfort foods, and exploring deep, emotional bonds in the privacy of your home.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
~ Exploring New Ways To Communicate ~
No one is going to need to ask you what’s on your mind under this influence, you’re feeling quite talkative. You will be infused with the courage and confidence to pursue your goals and express what you desire without mincing words. Intellectual stimulation can be a turn on for you, more than usual. Any trips you might take to a nearby destination could result in a hot encounter with a new love interest.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
~ Exploring New Values and Resources ~
Pisces aren’t typically known to be driven by money. You’re an old soul who has important spiritual work to do, but under this influence you’ll find yourself acquiring things of value. You may see a boost to your bank account while Mars is in Aries, as you are motivated to work hard for financial resources and the objects of your desire. In love, you will enjoy exploring all of your senses and may even feel indulgent.
