Mars in retrograde - April 18th to June 29th
Mars is the third smallest planet in our Solar system. So how does this tiny planet affect so much in our lives?
Did you know that Mars takes only 1 day and 40 minutes to circle the sun yet it's retrograde affects us for 2 months.
Retrograde for 2016 begins on April the 18th and it does not end until June 29th. Mars typically goes into retrograde once every 2 years and 2 months. There have been many whispers online about what Mars going into retrograde means for us as humans so I would like to give you what I have learned from research as well as what my guides have channeled to me, I hope this will help you to understand better what the energy from this can do and how how it may personally affect you.
First and foremost, the upcoming energy shifts will make us focus on relationships, past and present. I will also take a look at financial issues and personal journeys of discovery. So there will be a lot going on and much to think about.
Lets begin at the place that holds the most interest for us all, Relationships!
Issues pertaining to anger may come to the surface. You will be asking questions like why have I put up with this for so long and resentment will start to build in your relationship. This will need to be released before any damage is done. (Ask me about emotional releases). You may also become more outspoken and surprise yourself with how forward you have become. This is not something to be proud of. Please do not see this as a time to hurt others because of how you are feeling.
Why are these issues presenting themselves to you?
It is to help bring about the need to purge and rid yourself of this negative energy. It will teach us how to harness this energy that is not working for us and use it for a more positive purpose. It will also help us to figure out which relationships are necessary in our lives and which ones we can leave in the past.
Mars is all about sex. Flings with old flames may occur. This is to bring you back to your past and to help you figure out why it never worked out with this person before and teach you valuable lessons. Of course this will not be true for all of us just those who need to learn. There is also of course those in relationships make that extra effort to show your other half how much you love them.
What does this mean for you and your life in general?
Now is a great time for a personal journey of discovery. Think about who you are and what you want from life. Careful planning is a must.
Write down a list of your goals, number them and during this time try to work on each one of them.
You do not have to hurry this as you have a window until June 29th to work on this. Try having a soul reading which may show you flaws you did not know you have that need to be worked on.
Secondly look at yourself as a person and try to work on what you feel are your flaws.
Working on self image and self love is very pertinent.
Getting help to release any emotions or past hurts that you feel may be holding you back is necessary as it is a time where you will aim to move forward. (Emotional releases and healings will be very helpful here)
It is a very good time to purge your past hurts. (Ask me how)
By the time June comes following this advice you will have a definite life direction, a newer better you will surface. Much like the caterpillar turning into the butterfly.
For Twin Flames
Your twins masculinity will be greatly affected and you will see ego come into play big time. Things can become messy quickly in this situation so I would advise that you approach past problems that you have with twin with caution.
Those of you who have not had contact from your twin flame for quite some time may expect contact during this time. Again you will need to err on the side of caution, be friendly, do not go over old ground but use this time to move forward and forge a better more trusting relationship with your runner.
Do not scare them away with question of where they have been and why you have not heard from them. Instead ask if they have been ok, state that you are worried about them and have been feeling that something big and transitional has been going on in their lives. The more informed you are the more you will be able to do the right thing. Forearmed is forewarned.
Show your twin that you are there for them and that you understand their needs. Hold back the hurt you feel as the time will come to discuss this and heal from these issues.
If you do not follow your head you may be in a situation where you will see your relationship move backwards. Talk to me about this and I can help you make sure that this does not happen.
Lastly but by no means least I would like to briefly talk about finances, when Mars comes into retrograde many are of the belief that it is not a time to make any large purchases but I beg to differ I feel it is the perfect time as it is out with the old and time for in with the new. If you have been holding off on that new washing machine go for it.
It is also a time to repay old debts, so if you have any outstanding payments that need to be made, catch up on them. This is to help you create good karma for the second half of the year.
So just go for it. Get your life in order.
I have many services that can help you balance the energy, keep a level head, and focus things in the right direction. Contact me today!
