Mars is now moving forward in the sky again. He has been retrograde in Cancer since December 20, 2009. When a planet is retrograde it is closer to the Earth than usual. This concentrates, internalizes and tends to make the energy "back up" in our mind. In the case of Mars this can create quite a bit of frustration around whatever he rules in our lives.
