Retrograde Mars Mission Central Command

We are nearly halfway through an unprecedented* era of juiced-up Mars Vibe. The downsides are obvious: trade, climate, and viral wars, along with a whole lot of agitated or ineffective people who need to be managed, helped, or avoided.

But what are the upsides? More autonomy, better management – of yourself/your business -and audacity. Heightened self-assurance benefits relationships: less whimsical wish-fantasizing and more concise, direct dialogue.

Cultural and economic meta-trends won’t be apparent until after the Hyper-Flux so if you can, keep your options fluid till 2021.

But the boof-headed, snazzy sense of can-do competence? Max that up. Additionally: Vivid recall or revitalized appreciation of early-influencing hero-people, role mods, and your bravery.  Sudden onset big deal visionary concepts and the passion to pursue them.

To research: Is ambition a pheromone? And, if you attune your Mars receptors right, tactical nous. Guts and focus won’t accomplish much if you’re still fighting the last wars. Or arguing in your head with the referee of a game long over.  Notice how much even your more metaphysical musings have turned to strategic ends or become more purposeful.

Thoughts?

Important:  The Daily Personal Horoscope shows when Mercury, Venus, or Mars enter a new sector of your birth chart, so you can tell which life areas are the backdrop for the planetary influence. It’s particularly useful for times like this when the action planet drills down on the 15 to 28 degrees zone of the Ecliptic for weeks. But you may have missed the Mars one, due to it being concentrated in one zone for so long. So, I’ve temporarily made it so you can go 90 days back through the Daily Personal Horoscope. It is a bit clicky but it will mean you can read my interp of your main Mars mission terrain! 

*Mars was in Aries for nearly this long in 1988 but broke ranks into Pisces for a bit. The most recent time Mars was in his home sign for this long was actually 1943. The “unprecedented” comes courtesy of the squares to Saturn, Pluto, Eris, and Co. More details, if you are interested, in my Mars Rave or its transcript.

I have mercury square my mars today. So I’ll allow my self this one public thing.
I was reading another horoscope person, unnamed be ause its not about them. But as they said “Mars is about this, blah blah blah warfare, blah pluto repressed, blah..” I couldn’t help but think, all old fashioned like, “aries is when the ice cracks, aries is when the seedling breaks through the ground.”

Has mythological astrology’s hyperbole finally stopped its hold on me?

Until yesterday I managed to stick to my intention to not antagonize people, as advised by Mystic. But today – maybe because of Saturn turning direct in a square to Mars – I suddenly lost it. I was very much triggered by a lady who stood in the middle of the bus with a stroller. In the stroller was a crying little girl who was trying to get her attention. She ignored the little girl while chewing gum and scrolling on her phone. She was not wearing a face mask, even though it is mandatory here and COVID is sharply… Read more »

It’s just an optional product. Unless you’ve bought power line wifi extenders or have had them installed you don’t have it. If you have NBN it’s either a copper wire or coaxial cable from the pavement. In Australia we don’t use power lines on the street to distribute the broadband signal. We use a separate system.

!988 was called The Harmonic Convergence in evolved circles & many holistic therapies & thoughts did arise in that year. 1943 was mid WW2, both these Mars in Aries for lengths of time were truly global & opposite ends of spectrum. Many people are voicing global depression or global angst. Wish I could offer solutions but am also not optimistic but finding joy in cheese & chocolate.

The supplements industry are proving to be just as greedy as big pharma while having much less rigorous testing before being sold to the public. I think in both cases pharma and supplements, the mantra of less is more must be used. The other mantra that works well in this space is Trust but Verify .. Eg a natural supplement was suggested for me and when researched proved to be quite dangerous for my condition. Yeah it’s a minefield.

Yes, water. One of the priorities for our new home is having fresh underground water. I think that’s huge. Thinking about water wars to come, for example, China is sitting on the sources of 10 major Asian rivers which flow through 11 countries. Not hard to guess the type of power it will be able to wield over these countries’ economies by weaponising these rivers. It’s already a major point of contention with India & Pakistan – since all their rivers have their source in Tibet – which was “annexed” by China in the 1950s (See China water wars)

‘Grok’ is originally from a book ‘Stranger in a Strange Land’ Robert Heinlen (?) Sci-fi lovers hero. About a Martian who came to Earth and went down to the bottom of a swimming pool to ‘grok’ aka understand what humans were about, if my memory serves me well it was published or writ in ’70. After the big awakening in ’66-7.

Yes, 1988 – but it dipped into Pisces, as Mystic says (for about a week)
The previous long stay in Aries was between July1941 – January1942.
WWII was intensified during this period: Pearl Harbour bombing on Dec 7th, 1941 brought the US & Japan into the fray, so virtually the whole world became involved in the war.

I feel amazing. Still not comfortable being out here but will check back in here, my mission control as I orbit.

Thank you thank you thank you. The “Planet x entering you y house” is a recent feature and back then (early July) when Mars entered my 8th house a 2 degree Aries I didn’t have your take on this transit and I needed it very much. I copied it on my personal notes where I also have tips from your Mars rent and detailed suggestions on some specific aspects of Mars retro. It’s good to know we are almost halfway this transit really. There have been a couple of electric days, mostly because it has – and will again –… Read more »

So so true Miss Dee. I have been doing this too and have not mentioned it here but was remiss as mm’s mars rant has saved my ass a thousand times and a ton of pointless heartbreak & angst. I’m so proud of myself for not taking the bait because it has not been the logical thing to do and so many people have said if they were me they would have ya da ya da ya… and I’ve seen them taking their own bait and stayed back in the retrograde shadows counting to ten It’s all thanks to that… Read more »

Agree with you, Invicta! I have also remembered Mystic’s advise not to attack. I wish the whole world would listen to Mystic’s advice. We need that kind of advice so much in these times of polarization. I Saw ‘The Social Dilemma’ on Netflix last Friday and felt we are in such a dire situation. Social media really amplify the anger and aggression in our society in a frightening way…

From the moment Mars went retro, ppl have started using VERY strong words in email and I am ALWAYS staying behind the retro shadow, so to speak and truly making an effort to avoid conflict. I cannot wait for mid November but I try to be in the moment and enjoy any “light” day that comes along.

I’m waiting till January to be sure it’s 💯 out of the shadows
I plan to continue using the gifts of this mars retro and the Capricorn Convergence going forwards.

Engaging my analytical mind, detaching from the instant, knee jerk emotionally compromised reaction urge has been so constructive.
This nascent ability to delay my reaction and ponder is one of the most valuable things I’ve ever learned.

I have been on holiday having escaped metro Melbourne three weeks ago on a care visit. I had a covid test and isolated for 3 days on arrival and have been free since. Connecting with family and friends and visiting country towns, communing with nature, hiking and enjoying spring. It’s been lovely and I’m sad for my Melbourne friends. It feels very Uranus in Taurus — growth, good healthy food, connecting with people I love, enjoying the sunshine and spring growth 💕

Good for you Gem! Enjoy yourself, Melbourne is a big girl, I like to think she will shuffle off her chains soon.
