How do you get ahead when circumstances are blocking your way? That’s the story of Mars right now, as it appears to turn backwards in the zodiac. The current retrograde is affecting our ability to succeed– whether in relationships, business, or personal ambitions. But there’s also a positive way to approach the upcoming months, and it’s symbolized in your natal chart.
Mars is retrograde from October 30, 2022 through January 12, 2023. This is often a tricky cycle to navigate because Mars’ energy normally propels us forward, urging us to begin new activities. But when retrograde, Mars loses that momentum. In order to use this productively, we have to look at ways to reorganize its power so that restless frustration doesn’t define the next 75 days.
