One Simple Mars Retro Mission Statement
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius is a unique terrain, and it needs new tactics. It also comes with an effective weapon; extreme objectivity. Garish and dystopian geopolitics aside, the real purpose of this Mars Retrograde/Eclipse Zone can be reduced right down into a straightforward mission statement.
Until August 28*, Mars Retrograde compels all of us to identify, confront and eliminate long-standing dysfunctional dynamics. It is applying in both our business and personal lives. Of course, these dynamics are likely infiltrated into everything.
This is about patterns and scenarios that are now so established they may seem like ‘the norm.’ Or be indistinguishable from the structure itself. As in when you look at a tree, and it takes a while to realize that a strangler vine makes up a considerable part of the trunk.
Mars Retrograde is always a reclamation mission. In Aquarius for the longest time since the early Seventies, the action planet operates with a sci-fi dimension of extreme objectivity. The theatrical atmosphere of Mercury in Leo enhances this energy. How long is that for? The whole of the Eclipse Zone.
Under such stars, situations seem to arise to illustrate the dysfunctional dynamic. It is almost as if the whole saga – a prequel and all – were illuminated by stage lighting and acted out before you.
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius Awareness Driven Action
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius awareness driven action can seem ruthless and stark. That is especially the case when you’ve been doing some dynamic SO long, it feels like safe-home-base.
It is the mission-central sensibility underlying the Horoscopes from now on.
Everyone has their strategies, but I just got some of those gigantic stickies that you throw on the wall. On them, I have scribbled the three principal targets of this Mars Retrograde/Eclipse Zone. I’ve encoded the dysfunctional dynamics for tact and included planetary glyphs and runes.
And for real, I was not seeing them so clearly as I am today before now. I don’t think I was even seeing them as distinct dynamics at all. Or if I was, I was looking over them – seeing without seeing, if you know what I mean.
*Or until October 9 if you observe the Mars Retrograde shadow-zone, which I recommend.
