Hallelujah! Mars Retrograde in Capricorn is OVER!!!
This has been an unusually intense retrograde for a number of reasons. Especially when you consider Saturn (Ruler of Capricorn) being retrograde and trining Uranus and The Sun.
There´s just an incredible amount of pressure in Capricorn right now.
There´s also of course the end of Eclipse season 2018, Pisces full moon recently passed, North and South Nodes square Uranus – well – and more – it´s just a lot going on.
The end of Mars´ role in all of this allows stuck energy to begin moving forwards. So we can then move ahead with our plans and long-term projects.
Personally, as a Capricorn, I´d rather just party. But am pretty tired, so maybe a little work – and then sleep.
This Mars transit has taken a toll on my health, but I can look forwards to a more easeful recovery henceforth.
Here are some key dates for you:
Mars Retrograde began on June 26th at 9 Aquarius.
It entered Capricorn on August 12th.
It ended the retrograde (just now!) on August 27th at 28 Capricorn.
It will exit Capricorn and re-enter Aquarius on September 10.
It will end the Shadow Period- moving past the point the retrograde began, i.e. 9 Aquarius, on October 8th
Long story short:
Between now and September 10, look at whatever plans you were making and refining between May 12-15 and August 12-27. This is when Mars transited / will transit 28 Capricorn to 0 Aquarius.
Of course you can use this energy to rework any plan, commitment or choice of investment, but it´s likeliest that choices made during those dates will need the greatest tweaking.
And remember Capricorn´s lessons:
Think practical, think long-term
Make things concrete
Consistency and the investment of effort over times yields rewards
Doing a little bit every day as opposed to a whole lot at once is a better strategy.
Don´t bite off more than you can chew!
Remember to take time out to chill, dance, sleep and play!
Whatever fills your cup in a sustainable way
Whatever lets you let go of all that pent up energy and emotion in a healthy way.
Cuz we got lots and lots to do!
