Mars Retrograde: Hit the Brakes!

Mars Retrograde: Hit the Brakes!
Energy planet Mars slows to a stop and reverses direction on January 22, urging us to reflect and make important revisions in our lives. Mars goes retrograde once every 18 months for about three months, this time in detail-oriented Virgo until April 14. This period calls attention to the little things, and precision is the key to success. Delays on projects are to be expected; use the extra time to review your plans.

Energy levels can fluctuate at this time. If inspiration strikes, go for it. And if things are low-ebb, rest. Virgo is a feminine Earth sign, encouraging a gentle approach to things. That said, it may be necessary to speak up in order to have your ideas heard.

This Mars retrograde will impact all the Sun signs’ lives in different ways, but the message stays the same: slow down, deal with details and revise your plans! Which parts of your life will be most affected?
[Editor's Note: Mars rules Aries and Scorpio, and these signs in particular will notice a change of pace during this retrograde.]
