Explore Your Dreams: Mars Retrograde in Virgo

by Cathy Pagano January 23, 2012 06:00 PM EST
Mars goes retrograde on January 23rd until April 13 (Friday).  Ancient astrological wisdom deemed that when Mars is retrograde, aggression always loses. Let us hope that this holds true in the coming months as citizens take to the streets to peacefully protest.

When any planet goes retrograde, we say that the energy is turned within and it gives us a chance to re-think, re-do, re-evaluate, re-vise.  But what happens when Mars, the planet of action and desire, turns within?
 
We get in touch with our deepest, soulful desires!  Our cultural norms look down on desire and passion unless it feeds the economy.  Our wild selves have been caged to accommodate our cultural rules.  Now that doesn’t mean people don’t ‘get wild’, but that’s not the kind of wild I mean.  Our wild selves naturally want passion and sensuality, comfort and caring, vision and freedom.  When we understand that this retrograde Mars energy can help us reclaim our original intentions, our destiny, we will move forward at the right pace.

With Mars retrograde, projects might not move forward without a lot of re-doing on our part.  For others who are ready, stay clear on what you want and keep moving forward.  Virgo will help Mars achieve many goals this year.  With Virgo’s focus on analysis and discernment, on knowing yourself, on integrating body, mind and spirit, we have such an opportunity to change and grow.  Please use this cosmic gift wisely!

Until next time,
Sweet Dreams!
