Mars Retrograde

Feb 19, 2016 | Astrology Blog

Did you know whoever starts a lawsuit when Mars is retrograde loses? It's true! As well as starting a war, whoever strikes first loses! Try to get your opposer to initiate first during Mars retrograde & you'll see, it will fizzle out, have an extremely hard time in the batting cage, & by magic just disappear. With war, the opposer just plain loses.

Mars retrograde refers to Mars appearing to move backward as Earth and Mars orbit the Sun at different speeds. While an optical illusion, its astrological significance is real. Just as the Moon influences the tides, Mars retrograde can profoundly impact our lives.

The vitality and energy associated with Mars are diminished. It is a time when starting new initiatives or ventures is not advisable. During Mars retrograde the drive and aim we have when Mars is direct has lessened a great deal.  It's not a good time to start new such as a job, relationship/s, legal cases, or even global conflict. Initiating things now can lead to a letdown and will fizzle out.

When Mars goes backward in the sky, whatever we start has a habit of fizzling out or running into tons of problems and distractions. It's like the universe is urging us to pause, reflect, and rethink our plans before taking action. This can be tough for go-getters who like to dive right in, but it's crucial to listen to the cosmic heads-up.

Navigating Mars Going Backwards: Tips and Strategies

Getting More Self-Aware: One of the main reasons for Mars going backward is to encourage looking inward and self-reflection. Use this time to explore your emotions, motivations, and desires. Evaluate how you handle anger, defense mechanisms, motivation, and relationships. Understanding yourself better helps get through this time more smoothly.

Patience and Letting Go: Mars going backward (actually it's not) calls for patience and letting go and instead of rushing into action, take a step back and look at the situation more objectively. Let things unfold naturally before making big decisions or taking major steps. Avoid impulsive actions since they likely won't turn out well now.

Passive-Aggressive Approaches: Using passive-aggressive tactics, negotiation, or subtle power plays may work better with Mars going retrograde, asserting yourself may be challenging especially if you are the type of individual who is accustomed to showing muscle, or let's say aggression, well do understand that aggression is sleeping at this time! If you're the passive type, you will be quite surprised by how aggressive you become now but do try to stay focused and listen, any arguments now will prove to be a loss once Mars goes direct.

 

Be careful with machines: It's smart to take precautions with mechanical stuff while Mars is in reverse. Office equipment computers, and gadgets could conk out or mess up more easily. If possible, hold off on big purchases of mechanical items, or make sure they're insured well.

Astrology significance: Folks with Aries or Scorpio prominent in their birth chart may feel Mars retrograde more. They may notice feeling less feisty, pushy, and impatient. Instead, they might be more relaxed and hands-off, letting things unfold naturally before acting, which again, is well advised.

Expect the unexpected: Mars retrograde brings unpredictability and surprise events. Be ready for disruptions and detours in your plans and embrace flexibility and adaptability as you move through this time. By going with the flow of change and staying open you can make the most of the cosmic energies.

Historical Examples of Mars Retrograde

Throughout history, some pretty wild stuff has happened during Mars retrograde that shows how much it can impact different parts of life. Back in 1997, when Mars was retrograde in Libra and Virgo, usually chill people found themselves super annoyed with lazy co-workers. This time revealed how fed up they were getting with their co-worker's work habits they'd normally let slide.

In the same way in 2001, Mars retrograde overlapped with tons of incidents - like daily highway accidents and terrorist bombings. These events remind us of the potential dangers and disruptions that can pop up during a Mars retrograde.

Mars retrograde is a big astrological deal that requires our attention and ability to adapt. By getting its effects and making smart choices, we can handle this time smoothly and wisely. Use it to reflect on your feelings, actions, and desires, and approach conflicts and challenges with patience and detachment. Remember, Mars retrograde is a chance for growth and self-awareness, allowing us to sync with the cosmic energies and accept the changes ahead.
