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.
For you, Mars will be going backwards in your Eighth House. This is the part of your chart which governs sex and money, so let’s deal with them separately. Mars in this part of your chart – but going backwards – suggests that for some of you, there could be a bit of a drop in sexual desire. Don’t panic – it’s almost certainly only temporary! However, if you’re feeling totally spent in the desire department, now is the time to give yourself a break. For others, the exact opposite will be true – if Mars happens to be energising a poweful point in her personal chart, the slowness of the reverse cycle can mean his libdinious energies are focused more strongly and linger longer, setting your desire off the scale! If that’s the case, do be careful about how you assuage it – Mars can be brash and not nearly choosy enough! Financially, Mars here can herald delays – whether that’s on being paid or paying someone. If you’ve been very pro-active re your finances recently, it might be time to take a break to let the rest of the world catch up with you.
