The effects of Mars retrograde
When Mars retrograde sets in, its assets are often held back, meaning the notion of impulsiveness and spontaneity are delayed. The effects of the motion paradoxically require more time to materialize and set in. Slowness or obstacles may occur during this period and as a result, a discouragement or an unusual strain of tiredness could appear.
It’s best to take advantage of the Mars retrograde period to slow down and reflect on your life’s desires. Use this time to rethink the way you act and analyze the events that make you angry and upset. Find simple ways to calm your mind to evolve more serenely.
