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 is going backwards in your 12th House, opening the way for you to access a new level of spirtuality. You might think that sounds weird or even incomprehenisble, but the 12th House is one of the parts of the chart that’s hardest to understand. Mars is the planet of action and assertion and he’s going backwards – hanging around longer – in the most delicate and private part of your psyche. He will certainly be stirring up some fears that you might have wished to leave lying dormant. But is ignoring fears the way to make them disappear? Hardly ever. In fact, most teachers would have us face our fears, confront them, to make them go away. Mars in this part of your chart gives you the chance to do just that – and because it’s a reverse cycle, it’s actually a better than ever chance to face up to and release some old fears. And how can you do it? Obviously counselling or therapy are two excellent places to start. However, if you have any interest in meditation or meditative sports such as tai chi or chi gung or yoga, they can also help. Facing your fears could be one of the most spiritually brave things you ever do. If you dare take the hint and go off on a spiritual quest in an effort to better understand The Divine, you so have the stars on your side.
