Mars is now going through a relatively rare retrograde cycle. Mars is the planet of action who likes nothing more than to blaze a trail into the future. However, around about once every two years he appears to retrace his steps. Read on to find out where he’s going backwards in your chart and what that might mean to you and your sign.
Mars going backwards in your sign is mega news for you. Not only doesn’t this happen every day, it doesn’t happen even every decade. Mars is the planet of action, drive and determination and there are two schools of thought re what his reverse cycle through your sign will mean to you. On the one hand, we know that’s it’s Mars that fires us up and sends us soaring like a rocket towards success. Just say you’ve been feeling a little lazy, Mars is the impetus you need to Get Back Into It – at work and at home. Now, when Mars reverses, there’s an argument to say that his powers are diminished – though some very well respected astrologers I know claim that no such thing is true. They would tell you that you simply have More Mars in your chart for longer – in other words, since Mars goes backwards, he effectively lengthens his stay in your sign, therefore you have access for longer to his powers of drive, determination and self-assertion.
