Mars Retrograde Alert: If You Mate With Men…

Filed in Mars

Do you mate with men? This is a Mars Retrograde Alert for you.

Mars is already in Aquarius and Retrograde over July/August. The Action Planet stays in Aquarius till mid-November, never mind the little backtrack into late Capricorn.

The last time Mars was in Aquarius this long? 1971. It’s been a long time, since the Warrior God hung out in this zany zone for so long.

So, the Mars Mastery Mp3 and the Horoscopes are on this. It’s like a major theme of the remainder of 2018.

But note that one really classic interpretation of Mars Retrograde is “men returning.” Men from your once upon a time, exes if you mate with men or even men from past lives. And as a sign of how strange 2018 IS for relationships, no sooner does Mars turn Direct, then Venus is more or less Retrograde.

It’s a big second half of the year for karmic attractions but put on your Love Zombie Aura Protectant Armour. Remember: “it’s karmic” is just the fancy, metaphysical version of “it’s complicated.” Anything people say is “complicated” is usually insanely simple but they’re hiding some sleaze factor. And “karmic” doesn’t mean “has to happen again this life.”   Seriously, it does not. I feel like people SO often get this mixed up. Any sort of a karmic or past life connection generates a vortex of yearning and familiarity. This is not a substitute for an actually healthy, functional scenario.  Yes, Saturn has possessed me.

However, Mars Retro is big for this sort of thing. It’s not even just male mates ‘returning.’  Two of my clients, in the past week, have mentioned male agents from years ago returning.

So, see Mars Mastery and/or your Horoscopes for the more nuanced, sign by sign take on this. But, share here which men you would and would not want returning?

I ran into my former grad school advisor at a conference. After we talked about our accomplishments and careers since we departed, he encouraged me to apply for a doctorate at his institution and assured me that financial aid was available. Mars retro will be hovering over my natal (and we’ll aspected) Jupiter in the 9th house. I will take a look at the options and then make my decision once I have all of the information. Also, I am experiencing my Saturn opposition. I’ve had some amazing accomplishments at work while cleaning my emotional closet (not to mention healing… Read more »

I just remembered that the guy I last had a long term relationship with (that ended three years ago) was a Mars/MC in Aqua, Pisces sun guy. During our really strange (with seriously spiritually, lovely wonderful times) relationship, after we had been together for one year, he convinced me, and my children, to move in with him in his lovely, large home on a lake. Right after I moved in, Mars went retro, and he had a change of heart. He also had a massive heart attack and his whole life changed. I moved out six months later! All in… Read more »

I have, and never will, get over my teenage unrequited girl. It’s long dormant, rather like Mt Gambier. Everyso often l hear from her.

In other news, Susanna Hoffs has not returned any of my 1693 emails or 741 phone calls.

So back to men and Mars retro. I had to choose the very haute path on email and refrained from explain/complain. I ended by politely handing over the group email task to the alpha male group chair. He had someone else cc’d in his tirade – whom I removed when responding. This guy is a former sensei to me- and I was professional and cordial in all that I wrote. I reread it several times to check for snide/snark and it passed. I got no response but saw he had indeed sent his own email out. Bravo and may we… Read more »

Oy!! Ended the evening with another text protesting basically he was right- etc. So I apologized again in specific and generally for any and all shortcomings à la Pisces Moon- and asked what it would take to reduce his ire. Have not heard back.

Am I back in middle school?! LOL!!

Is there any chance that this return could be positive? Like someone who needed time away and returns with a new lease on life?

2 Capricorns and a Tauro/Gem… The 3 I wouldn’t be surprised. 1 Capricorn I was dreaming a lot about a couple of weeks ago. The 2nd Capricorn sent me an email… I cringed because I don’t want to have anything to do with him. The Tauro/Gem… been years but I wouldn’t be surprised.

I would rather go back to someone I had trouble getting them to stay with me than to wait for someone else. It is brutally hard out there with men being beaten up so much.

I think all my exes have already done their attempts at an encore…had a really good friend who was like a brother for about 12 years – until he disagreed with my choice of husband and went off in a snit. I loved him to bits and often wonder how he is… maybe he’ll put in an appearance

So. I’m a super Virgo. This is timely, last Wednesday I had a male Cancer I was close to 29 years ago reach out on Facebook. Two years ago I sent him a message because out of the blue I found a photo of him and a situation long forgotten and heard a song that reminded me of hi. I forgot about it. Then he sent me a message the day after the full moon. He apologized for taking so long to respond but his mother had died In March of 2016, after a long illness, and he put his… Read more »

Well…this ought to be very interesting since I’ve had my share of ‘returns that were rebuffed’ and others at arms length come back from the past like a zombie apocalypse, and of course the discovery of one from both the past and the future…and that’s been the show for the past couple of years. Maybe this will be the finale like in the firework shows we have here in the USA on the 4th of July?

Had the weirdest dream saturday night following the shamanic epsom & bicarb bath and no screen time. It was the father of my son. His birthday. In a massive room filled with people. I’m there for some reason, and he’s up on a stage thanking everyone for coming. I’m supposed to put on ‘the right tv show’ to accompany the moment. “No, not that one” he says. I pick another. “Not that one either.” he comes over, and I say – if you know the one you wanted, why didn’t you just ask for it to be shown? He was… Read more »

When a woman is done with a man, they’re done with him. He may make a cameo, but the dude may as well be dead, I reckon. At best, a one-dimensional hologram version sans shiv bits, or zombie type thing-o.

In other news, since discovering proper birth deets i’m studying what’s where why and what, et cetera. Pisces in Venus ffs…

I LOVE ASTROLOGY.

MMMm it is interesting that most comment -no thanks, no old returns.
I feel the same
I guess that is why they are past loves.

Maybe one I would like to tell how angry Ive been with him when I look & see how treated. But that’s anger at myself

And I finally woke up.
He was a traditional Scorpio
Dont cross a scorpio! Even with out realising it.
Their way, or the highway
I;m on that road and feeling better for it
But the love was real and hard to let go

I too have a Scorpio I finally left …and youre right “my way or the highway” was his motto. Just like you I’m really angry that I let him treat me the way he did for so long but going through therapy I realize that it’s me being angry at myself. No more Scorpios for me thankyouverymuch.

There’s one that I want to return… I think. The wounds are still so fresh and perhaps just yet I lack the clarity to know what’s best. My Pisces Sun yearns for the romance to return, my Aqua rising isn’t so sure. A couple of weeks ago the Taurean, Sag rising in my life broke the news that he’d been approached by his soon to be ex-wife, divorce pending. Married for twenty years, they’d been separated for six, and have two children together. He was considering it. I can understand the complexity of the situation for him. Of course, ideally… Read more »

Maybe the mars retrograde is where you both re-enter spaces apart, so then possibly later return when mars is direct? I suppose I see it that way. My marriage is just unravelling – at the speed of light almost since uranus burst into Taurus…its opposite my ceres/ Juno in Scorpio… He is around but we are amicably negotiating arrangements…I suppose I’d prefer the actual partnership to survive (as it IS an entity of its own proportions) and we are parents…but we are realistically unlikely to shift dysfunctional dynamics… It’s hard to foresee…I’d let go, as he would…the connection still exits…difficult… Read more »

Thank you Aquasunrise, the idealist/romantic in me would love to think and hope that the departure lounge I’m sitting in just bid bon voyage to a round trip rather than a one-wayer, the pragmatist in me tells me otherwise.

Maybe like your ‘Neptunian dream’ I provided some healthy concepts for remodelling (hopeful). Perhaps for me it was enough that I had some stellar support and stability during a really crap time in my life.
Thanks for the candid sharing of your own experience. I wish you all the best with your own remodelling/ending/beginning.

Please forgive me for being so blunt (Mercury in Aries conjunct Eris/ trine Mars in Sag): I have been in the “we’re in love but he just needs to give the marriage one last chance– he cried, I cried” situation more than once. I got my heart torn out and handed to me on a platter. Then that platter was upended and my heart was stomped and ground into the earth. So let me tell you how it’s going to go: He will try with her. At first it will go ok, and meanwhile you are feeling flayed alive. Then,… Read more »

I was weirdly entangled with this man in 2004-2005 in a forum for people choosing to leave a particular faith prior to getting married (and subsequently divorced in 2011). It constituted an emotional affair in my opinion, but neither my fiance at the time nor online forum guy thought so (everyone was asleep at that wheel). Fast forward, he messages me in 2013 after I’ve entered New Healthy Relationship. I explain that it seems odd we be in… Read more »

Wow, just last night I had a dream about one of my exes from years ago, from the early 90’s. I don’t know if I’ve ever dreamed about him before. I don’t remember.. We are actually still occasionally in touch via email or phone, so we still have a bit of a friendship going and he’s the only ex I have any contact with or feel favorably about. In the dream he looked younger again and he actually said ‘I still love you’ in the dream. I have no interest in that way toward him anymore and I doubt he… Read more »

Ugh – I have already decided that the next six months are a no dating zone and are completely devoted to pulling my shit together to levels pre-2008. Since then its been a freaking roller coaster and my house, finances, and body all look the part. Going completely mars/virgo and cleaning it all up. I’ve taken a four year break from men, with just a few dates here and there. But my progressed moon just went into my seventh house and Jupiter will be exactly conjunct my sun and venus in December.

HE broke my heart so many times- we never could say how we truly felt about eachother so i still to this day don’t know how he really felt about me but no one made me feel safer than him, he stayed with me in my darkest moments and still made me feel cared for.

My lovelife up to now has more or less been a karmic mess, except one ex who is now one of my best friends and taught me the meaning of love- I love him to death but it is not a scenario I want to come back! In fact, I friendzone nearly all my exes because they mean something to me, and I know the lesson is over! There is a karmic attraction lurking in the wings- a man 14 years older than me (yes Saturn opp Saturn synastry) who I fell for in three seconds but then he tried… Read more »

Well for me it was heartbreaking, as the man who proposed “play” was friendly enough but I understood he was only alluding to it, to see if I would pursue it…and yes he is older, probably partnered, intelligent and astute, and cool. You just know when someone is pulling you along, especially if there is genuine chemistry but everything else is AWOL…that translates to extreme unavailability in lifestyle choice and values… Crickey I am so over my venus Pluto lillith transit of the 5th… Yep, and saturn square my saturn, moon is tough stuff, chiron is also square my moon… Read more »

Yeah and I also have Chiron in the 7th opposite Venus/Uranus (NATAL). Like…god dammit. This is like the event horizon of dealing with rejection issues for me this year. This shit destroys me. I won’t let it happen anymore.

Ha, Chiron is opposite my Uranus and Mars. Mars and Uranus are not conjunct therefore Chiron is at a wide opposition to both.

Chiron opp your Venus, you being female (l sus), is like Chiron opp Mars for me.

“event horizon of dealing with rejection issues ”

boy, you got that right. (venus conj chiron and south node here). It’s incredibly liberating to put your finger on the issue(s) though. A complete reframe of the role of romantic relationships in one’s life.

AKAPluto
AKAPluto

Yup. Uranus into Taurus was when I felt the spark with this guy, almost to the day. But instead of a
“romantic surprise” (I’m Taurus Descending) I got a “aha flash of how fucked up it all still is”.
Painful but necessary.

Aquasunrise
Aquasunrise

It is similar situation for me too (natal). Uranus Pluto opposite mars chiron…7th, but I suppose I’m learning from my own actions/ need for freedom?

Saturn in 7th has kept me committed to unhealthy lifestyle choices. My spirit really prefers to be free.

I hope that you can get through with a more hopeful vision, the Neptune Jupiter trine is sort of offering possible philosophical paths/ truths around intimacy & relationships.

AKAPluto
AKAPluto

The jupiter neptune trine has definitely blessed me with visions of what could be (like meeting actual happy couples who I emulate). I do wonder if there is any hope for us 7th hous chiron peeps, though. Never met anyone with this aspect who ever found love.

I had a dream about a past man and in my heart it was like a resolve that I should have never been with him Romantically. Then I had a dream right away that pieces of my teeth were breaking and I found some old luggage filled with some junk and clothes next to a church I walk by often.

I nearly freaked when I woke up. No past men for me!

But my DH woke up telling me he cheated on me in his dream and it quilted him so much. What a weird time

Don’t want (but am bracing for): – the guy I astral vomit projected all of my Mars (likely Saturn too) onto pre Saturn return. G’lawd. Bracing because I’ve never not found him tucked away somewhere in my psyche and I keep finding these books and clearing it out. I feel like though as I do that there will come a time where I see him in the flesh to really confirm I’m able to handle internal intensity around others without reacting or making up stories. – ANY AND ALL PUERS!

I want NO men returning. I’m friends with my bros, but yeah, not to get on the merry-go-round again and there are some dudes–the ones from when Uranus was travelling through Aries and on my Mars, coincidentally, that I could care less if I ever see again.

I’m not into the “ooh it’s karmic,” scene, but if someone’s gonna come at me, I want it to be the new guy and if it’s “karmic” then so be it. It will, alas, probably have to wait for another lifetime.

Something like that happened. I met an awesome man, I have no idea what that means yet but the synchronicities are off the charts. The latest weird being when I searched my email for his emails to check an address. There they were all clumped together and there’s one there from 2012 from facebook saying we both commented on a post about fracking. I met him 12 days ago! I radically cleared my inbox recently. AND it was sent on the 4th of the 4th 2012 so all up its a 4!

It’s not the Mars retro by itself that concerns me (and FYI I *do* detest Mars retro more than any other retrograde – yes, even as a Venusian!); it’s the fact that it’s also making prolonged/multiple contacts to that potentially destiny-derailing South Node. :-/ It’s such a strange dichotomy with Venus in Leo also conjunct the North Node – I get the feeling of our heartspace opening and those 2nd, 3rd, and 4th chakras powering right up but at the same time we’re challenged not to be sucked into the strange energetic vortex of a physical sexual attraction or depleting… Read more »

Not the douche from 2011/12 who apparently still has my number according to a snapchat notification I received just the other day. I deleted his years ago. He must have sync’d his contacts. Not that he has actually tried to contact me but it put me on D head alert!

syncing contacts is freaking me out. when you carry your sim over to a new phone it used to be easy to scroll through and delete delete, now, if you’ve so much as sms’d one person once or emailed them to book a room on an overseas trip 12 years ago, they never leave you. The Cloud Remembers. It’s like a pluto in gemini thing? In a couple of decades, “having your head in the cloud(s)” will mean something completely different from this cute little analogue daydream era

For some reason I’m picturing ultra smooth talking womanising slippery sort of creatures, charming / super “confident” persona but flaky with decent / morality?

Unrelated – sorry – but as I trudge through this latest dirgey of void moons, trying to summon up motivational energy for the week, I thought I’d go back and read the article / blog post from the other day on the subject: how, now that Uranus is again in early degrees of a sign, we are subject to more frequent longer void episodes. Sounds as fascinating as they can be frustrating. But I can’t find it anywhere! Did I dream it up under the shamanic watery trines of late? I’d like to try to remember it as it sounded… Read more »

My personal Mars/Mercury conjunction (Virgo) is currently taking a hit (square) from Sun and Mercury and is still being opposed by Neptune and my aggravation is high at the moment. Yes, there have been strange sightings and phone calls from long ago wanna-be-suitors. An ex from a lifetime ago (another Kataka, NOT the a-hole I was married to – with my 8th house Kataka moon I seem to draw them in like flies) with whom I do have a nice friendship has been hovering on the edge for a couple of years now, but we aren’t connecting fully.

Well there is one bloke I’d love to hear from again but I doubt he’s coming back anytime soon. I’ve finally accepted what the role was he played in my life and I in his. Weird, but total acceptance finally happened over the weekend.
Of more importance to me is that Mars will retro through my 6th Aqua house. Right on cue the power trips at the cube farm are ramping up..going to take a LOT of self-mastery to keep a cool head and not tell them all to get fuqued.

Whoa, we are leading parallel lives!

The only difference, fortunately, is that my dysfunctional ex from hell never contacts me nor I him, so I don’t expect any crypto text messages with any degree of sympathy from him. Still – weird to read the life timeline similarities! 🙂 And yes, you… Read more »

Maybe even the same night. He moved in swiftly and she was pregnant 6 months later.

Thank you. Yes, I am okay. My mom took a nosedive after he passed though and almost didn’t make it. She has come out of it though and looks as if she will be around for a while after all. Death of a stepparent is very strange, for me at least, because it has brought up layers of childhood issues that had long ago been given up on. My Chiron return is nigh, too, so I’m feeling all the wounds I carry at the moment. Life sure is weird. But thank you again, I hope you are okay as well.… Read more »

Apparently Mars will be sitting in my 5th house for the next 6 months. Does Mars Retro + Venus Retro means not to date AT ALL for the next months? I have been alone for a very long time. I am subscribed to online dating and the subriscription is quite expensive. Do I have to say no to anything? I do NOT have any ex I want to reconnect with and I would not have trouble saying no to exes.

Lucky I don’t see her much. LOL!
