Aquarius 20 Jan - 18 Feb
Your Week Ahead - Mon 20th August
By the time that Mars retrograded back
out of Aquarius last week he had already
been here for three months, twice as long as
the six weeks it will normally take to launch a new
Mars cycle. The fact that Mars retrograded back out was
not an indication that this was a failure to launch, with Mars
having spent three months to venture into just the early
degrees of Aquarius. Mars will turn direct early next week, taking him just 14 more days to return to Aquarius, to start over again.
When Mars returns next month he'll be back in direct motion, spending another two months finally getting this new Mars cycle up to speed. Yet returning to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart Mars, the planet that gives us our drive and get up and go, is encouraging you to take some time out to recharge your batteries, along with time to hear yourself think. With seven planets still in retrograde motion, this couldn't come with better timing.
