Many have had changes, either unexpected or planned. Some unexpectedly lost their job, some have changed positions. Most of this seemed to happen during the actual Mercury retrograde three week event. As we’re now getting out of the Mercury shadow, events from the Mercury retrograde may be becoming clearer. However, while the Mercury retrograde event may be becoming clearer, we’re heading into murky waters (literally as Mars is in a Water Sign Cancer) as Mars turns retograde tomorrow on November 15th.
What does Mars in retrograde mean? Well, we’ve had a Mercury retrograde recently as well as a Venus retrograde in August. This has been a year of change and indeed a year of retrogrades as well! While Mercury retrograde can hinder communication, Venus retrograde cause a reflection on what is real love and what our values are, and now we have Mars retrograde. . . Which can bring a reflection on what drives us and how we act/react, and what propels us through life.
Fire signs are in their natural element with Mars. Not so much with Water signs. Water doesn’t naturally move directly like fire does. And with the retrograde even moreso: which is why is say that murky waters may lie ahead. We may have to wade through areas that are not clear to get a what is really driving us during the period of November 15 through January 30th.
The sign of Cancer is the sign of the home, family and hearth, both inner and outer. And it’s all coinciding with Thanksiving and the Holidays (Hanakkuh, Christmas, Kwanza, Festivus, etc. ) AND New Year! There’s not a better time to observe how one’s way of action in the world has been influenced by one’s family and early environment. And what you can observe and reflect upon, you can change. So don’t hestitate to really think about things that may have influenced you as come Mars Direct you have a whole new chance to rebuild your way of action and interaction, especially in the arena of home an family. Once the muddy waters clear, you’ll see a whole new environment and a whole new you!
