There is absolutely no point taking Mars Retrograde too personally. Or becoming unbecomingly raddled as you await it being Direct. Because you may as well know that it is Direct on March 11 but out of Shadowzone in mid-May. Mars out of Shadowzone sounds like something that Darth Vader or Sauron might like to keep an eye on but it’s actually just when Mars gets back to the point it was at when it went Retrograde.
So you see that there is absolutely no point sitting around being neurotic about things that don’t move quickly enough for your, well, ego.
You need to sit tight, meditate, send Mars energy up the wazoo of whatever house it is skulking in and think of all the ways in which a delay now is completely brilliant for you and your strategy. Because you have a strategy, don’t you? Mars retreats back so that you can develop a strategy. Not sit around seething.
Anyway, the Full Moon on Feb 28/March 1 is in VIRGO…so surely freaking out over diets and details should provide some welcome distraction from what’s-not-moving-fast-enough-in-your-ego-diva-sector-of-Leo?
Or you could keep in training for when Saturn heads back into Virgo in April…See, plenty for pent-up Mars-peeps to do. And just watch your stalled situation move fast from mid-March, faster even in mid-May…
