The upcoming Mars and Pluto retrogrades…

A short video on what you need to know about the upcoming Mars and Pluto retrogrades on 4/17 and 4/18/2016:

Here’s also what I had to say about Mars’ retrograde:

Although vigorous Mars doesn’t appear to move backwards (or retrograde) until Sunday, we will likely feel a slow-down and mellower shift during the week. As Mars is one of the key symbols of masculinity, whether it manifests in women or men, there’s a chance for more thoughtful expressions of power and strength. Perhaps we’ll hear more stories of nobility in sportsmanship or greater civility among our presidential candidates.

However, the riskier possibility with Mars retrograding is that some might rebel with bluster and aggression, because Mars doesn’t appreciate feeling contained or curtailed. Mars only likes “No” if he’s saying it. It’s the kind of bold defiance that has more balls than brains, like you taking a dare to jump off the roof of your house thinking you won’t break your legs – or worse.

Mars retrogrades can also signal periods of depression. When we can’t express the lively energy associated with Mars, it craters into a sinkhole of miserableness. Try to counter it by placing more energy in the body through active engagement or release, even if only to shout. You might also reflect on when you decided NOT to do something recently to get a clue about the source of this pent-up energy.

In general, thoughtful action is the optimal strategy for riding out Mars retrograde. Like any planet moving retrograde, it’s an important time for renewal and clearing what blocks us. Since Mars is low on impulse control, it makes sense to think about how you refresh your personal drive. You don’t have to tie up your passion or ride it into the ground. You can gallop until you claim the victory you desire.


Blunting the shock of Mars’ retrograde will be the easy flowing trine between sassy Mercury to merciful Jupiter and passionate Pluto during the week. This will help us keep some decorum as we figure out positive ways to express Mars’ inward turn.
