Mars Retrograde

Mars the action planet will be retrograde, starting today November 1st until January 11th, 2023. The retrograde will take place in the planet of Gemini, the sign of the twins, and siblings, with a great effect and discord on relatives, significantly brothers and sisters.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the god of lies and theft as well as civil war and strife. Mars represents your energy and action, its placement in your chart will be indicated how the actions of mars will be manifested. A stressed-out mars aspect can often trigger impulsive actions that can lead to accidents, anger, and upsets,

Mars goes retrograde every 2 years for 2.5 months. Retrograde energy is reactive instead of proactive, your energy and ambition seem to disappear and seem to be replaced by a world of problems, worries, delays, disappointments, and general negativity. With this retrograde, the mental dexterity and sharpness of mars in Gemini get slowed down therefore logic and planning become difficult.

Things seem to take great effort as you lose interest and enthusiasm due to the issues you may encounter. Plans can get stalled which might cause frustration, keep focused on being clear in communication so others can have a clear perception of our goals and vision as well as what you expect from them. Retrogrades are integral in action and the feelings which you have been suppressing might rise to the surface. This might clear the air but lingering conflict still will demand resolution.

Gear your energy toward meeting deadlines, taking care of responsibilities, working toward long-term goals, meet your challenges one day at a time to the best of your ability, Things will get better but might seem like things have to be done twice (Gemini) before they will be correct.
