Bam! All this Aries energy is impelling us to start it now, go for it, move forward...spring is springing...can't you see??? And yet, the breaks are on, as Mars goes retrograde and halts the action. Ah! Frustration!
Not just Mars, but co-ruler of Scorpio, Pluto, goes backward as well. These are both planets that have to do with the lower chakra issues of power, control, money, survival, sex, significance, will. We get some time to reevaluate what it is that we really want. Projects may come to a stand-still, as we learn more about what we value and what makes us happy, and how to better aim our efforts in that direction.
Four of the starring players are connected to War energies. Venus Goddess of Love AND War, is in confrontational Aries. Mars, God of War, is standing still in Sag, getting ready to go on tour into the Underworld. He meets his rival, the bold star Antares (Anti-ares), in the dark heart of the Scorpion, and they face off. And his Sister, Eris, Goddess of Strife, is becoming active as She begins to get closer to Uranus the Awakener. Longstanding conflicts can heat up, and confrontations can happen. With the retrograde motion of Mars, we can be sure it something within that needs to be faced, even if it seems like it is coming from without.
Take it easy, don't push. Take pleasure in what you are blessed with. Connect with love. Solutions are there, it just may take more time and care than we originally thought.
