Mars is going to spend the rest of 2020 in Aries, so prepare for things to heat up—especially your love life. Mars is at home at Aries, and they build each other up instead of balancing each other out. Since Mars rules aggression, ambition and lust while Aries is known for its fiery nature, Mars’s stay in Aries is sure to make passions run high. Astrology may not dictate the specifics of your situation, but your horoscope can certainly help you know what to expect.
What Mars in Aries Means for Your Relationships EmotionallyRead More »
Mars is the opposite of Venus, the planet ruling romance, so the period where Mars is in Aries isn’t the most likely time for cutesy romantic picnics under the moon and stars or cuddle sessions with a movie. Mars in Aries can up your energy levels enough to make you impatient, so there’s really no need for tons of precursors or foreplay. This is the time for love lives to turn up the heat and get a little more physical.
Along the same lines, this isn’t the best time for playing games. Playing hard to get and dancing around what you truly want won’t go over as well as they would with a flirtier horoscope. Instead, be honest and straightforward with what you want. Your partner will appreciate it, and you don’t have to waste any time waiting for them to sense what you want and read between the lines. It’s also a good time to set your boundaries since you will probably be feeling more assertive.
Whether or not you have a partner, when Mars is in Aries, you’ll probably feel more lustful and interested in having more fun with your bae or getting back in the dating scene. Unlike the calm, empathic moon, Mars comes with desire in a purely physical sense. Hormones are running high during this period, so make sure you have some kind of outlet for your needs and desires.
No matter how you’re handling the physical aspect, your love life is not going to be boring. With an undercurrent of fiery and spontaneous energy, you’ll want to keep things interesting through both physicality and fast-paced emotional connections. Instead of romance or logic, passion will rule you, so you’re sure to spice things up in the ways that make most sense in your relationships.
Part of passion can be fighting so while Mars is in Aries, be prepared for an increase in petty arguments and heated disputes. Don’t worry, though: during this time, you’re likely to be impulsive and spontaneous enough that everything is transitory. Your fights will blow over quickly and might even renew your passion and interest in your partner once you make up.
As Mars travels through the squares, you will face different challenges and different types of heightened emotions. When it squares Jupiter in Capricorn, your levels of impulsivity will increase even more. Try to slow down and exercise some self-control before throwing caution to the wind during your romantic and sexual activities. When Mars in Aries squares Saturn in Capricorn, you may be more prone to anger and aggression. Your petty disputes may increase here, so this is another time where you might need to step away before you speak to avoid too much conflict with your partner. Most arguments will blow over quickly, but if you say something too hasty disputes can become more serious. When Mars in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn, the hot-headed aspect of Mars in Aries becomes stronger. You might have an increased tendency to think with your heart and emotions rather than your head, so practicing some self-awareness here could be seriously beneficial.
Beginning in September, Mars will be in retrograde, so some of your bold, straightforward energy may start to wear off. You may feel some more uncertainty, so make sure that you stay firm in the boundaries you set before the retrograde and continue to assert yourself. Getting your needs met is important, so try to hold onto the Mars in Aries energy and channel it into self-advocacy once it starts to waver.
Mars and Aries go hand-in-hand, so when Mars is in Aries the characteristics associated with them become even stronger. Get ready to spend the rest of 2020 swapping out your boring routines with your partner for passion, impulsivity, lust and action, while keeping in mind that with heightened emotion and passion comes conflict. The stars have spoken: the rest of 2020 is going to be rich in steamy romance and intense encounters during Mars’s rare extended stay in Aries.
