Seriously massive Mars Vibe this week people – see your Horoscopes for more, also the D.M.
As per the Check Your Mars post a few down, it’s a good time to get your own Mars fine-tuned.
This is the strongest Mars vibe we have had since the Grand Cardinal Cross of April.
Stay OUT of the way of people who may not do Mars energy so well, don’t choose this week to make your shark jumping debut and definitely refuse to be power tripped by random fuqed up Muggles.
AND i have this pertinent email query from a subscriber:
Dear Mystic –
I am reading your blog post right now about the upcoming Mars-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, and how we should all be working our natal Mars. My question is this: Does being born with a planet in retrograde have any bearing on how its influence(s) play out in one’s life? I was born with Mars retrograde in Capricorn – and, although I have a strong drive to succeed, I feel like I often struggle to manifest things practically – I seem to have issues with execution. The rest of my chart aside, do you think being born with Mars retrograde could have any bearing on that and, if so, how can those of us born with major planets retrograde work more in tandem with that influence instead of struggling against it?
Many thanks for your wonderful site and insight!
Mars In Waiting.
Dear Mars in Waiting,
i get it, i really do. I have Mars Retrograde in Virgo and sometimes feel like I specialize in devising the details of lofty missions and then somehow undermining them or getting lost in a blur of revisions.
But remember that Mars Retro is quite common! And you know how we KNOW that a high amount of visionary poets, screenplay writers and original thinkers seem born under Mercury Retro, why can’t it be the same with Mars retrograde?
I would say Mars Retro in Capricorn would bestow enormous intensity – Mars banked up, Mars super analytical. I may have an enormous bias here but i think Mars in Capricorn is SO hot that retro or not, you’re still blessed with an awesome Mars.
In fact, i don’t think retrograde planets limit anyone at all. Sure, if you were going to start a big enterprise, maybe you time it to initiate with a direct Mars but the world is full of sensational Mars Retrograde types. I think negative takes on it are a bit old-school. I mean, God, Richard Branson (who probably is the definition of “self made” has Mars officially in “detriment.”
People born with Mars Retro in Capricorn – Frida Kahlo and the web entrepreneur David Karp.
Also, the KEY thing about being Mars in Capricorn now is that you’re Pluto-powered.
