Mars will be dancing to the tune of Aries-Pisces sign for the upcoming period of 2020.

The planet of action – Mars is going to enter sign of Pisces which is natural 12th house of zodiac on 4th October. Mars is a soldier and a natural karaka for strength, energy and warriorship. It is a highly active planet which makes us successful in our worldly pursuits but it is undergoing affliction due to its ongoing tussle between the aries and Pisces sign. This affliction of mars can lead to abuse in relationships, unfruitful arguments, domestic violence, mental harassment and loss of passion to bring ideas to reality. Mars is transiting the gandanta point of Aries- Pisces 3 times this year which is a catastrophic event in itself. It can trigger unpleasant events in both personal and professional life. Some past health issues can also surface out again during this period. If you are feeling that your fire of passion has lowered down and you are not able to take decisions for acting upon ideas, then you can surely put the blame on this Mars retrograde!!

Let first have a look what’s going in cosmos with fiery planet of Mars.

16th August,2020 – Mars enters Aries

10th September 2020- Mars turns retrograde

4th October,2020 – Mars enters Pisces

14th November,2020- Mars becomes direct

24th December 2020- Mars enters Aries again

So, you can see that mars will be dancing to the tune of Aries-Pisces sign for the upcoming period of 2020. This will have large repercussions on our home environment, work-life balance, sexual lives and overall relationships.

Mars will form aspects and yogas with many planets during this whole transit. These mutual aspects and combinations can trigger important events. Let’s have a look at these combinations:

Saturn and Ketu aspects Mars (4th October -24th December):

Two dire malefics are putting pressure on another malefic which is in retrograde form. This can lead to severe health issues and instances of violence. This planetary setup is catastrophic for world peace too. Also, Ketu is currently in natural 8th house Scorpio and Saturn is in Capricorn, so this can result in loss of peace due to unearthing of scams in world.

Mars -Sun mutual aspect (4th October-17th October) –

Mars and Sun are both fiery planets. Their mutual aspects will work like putting ghee in the fire. You can expect explosions i.e. unusual eruption of anger and harsh behavior on account of this mutual aspect. Lack of decision making among major economies and war like conditions will prevail during this period.

Mars -Venus mutual aspect (23rd October -17th November) –

Retrograde Mars and Venus are aspecting each other can be a worst time for relationships altogether. Here Venus will be debilitated in Virgo and thereby indulged in material pleasures. There will be lack of emotional connect and passion which are crucial for smooth flow of love in relationships. This time is also not good for entertainment industry. There are huge chances of explosion of scandals.

Mars & Saturn aspecting Libra –

Both the malefics will be aspecting natural 7th house of zodiac i.e. Libra during this transit. This brings relationships to forefront and the urgent need to address the issues in this area. No matter where Libra is placed in your chart, you will be experiencing some sort of effects varying in magnitude according to your natal chart. Also, with the worldwide lockdown, we already know that the cases of woman abuse are on rise. Rapes, domestic violence and physical abuse has heightened due to mental frustrations and stress on Libra sign.
