AriesOthers seem to recognize your efforts, talents, or leadership ability today, dear Aries. You can be particularly inspired by a work or health pursuit, project, or lifestyle adjustment. Today’s energies can still be on the confusing side with Mars, your planetary ruler, turning retrograde. Until November 13th, you may feel that life is slowing down or that you don’t have the usual energy and direction.
