You might be frustrated if it feels like creating solid momentum on your personal goals feels more like walking through thick mud than sprinting ahead as you’re apt to do while go-getter Mars, your ruling planet, is retrograde in your sign from September 9 to November 13. When it feels like the roadblocks just keep piling up, see this as an opportunity to reflect, revise, and slow down in order to perfect your game plan. You might also take heart in the fact that not alone!
Thankfully, after September 12, you’ll see more visible expansion in terms of your professional path, thanks to lucky Jupiter ending its four-month retrograde in your tenth house of career. You might find that any plays for more recognition from higher-ups might begin to pay off now.
