Every two years or so, Mars, the planet of action and desire shifts retrograde, forcing us all to take a breath and a relative break from the rapid pace of life.
On Tuesday, June 26, Mars will reverse his motion in the sign of Aquarius, a place Mars has not been retrograde since the summer of 1971.
Mars is a yang archetype and wants nothing more than to ACT, so when the energy slows down as it is now and then inverts, it forces a pause in the Soul and tempers your instinct, allowing you to take a closer look at the choices you have been making. With Mars in Aquarius, it induces objectivity and allows you to observe your life without too much emotion so you can make conscious choices that you know will support your Soul’s journey ahead.
Mars will be retrograde for two months and will back into the final degrees of Capricorn before stationing direct on August 26. Mars will have to then clear his shadow from the retrograde, and will not reach the same point in the sky as he was when he reversed directions until October 8. This will allow you to implement any necessary changes in your life as a result of a newfound awareness that occurred during the retrograde.
Use this period of time to Re-Boot your Soul, so that more conscious living can take place!
