MARS RETROGRADE – HOW TO USE AND DIRECT OUR ENERGY?
As we say hello the Virgo season and say good bye to fire sign of Leo, we become more practical and start to make more realistic plans for the coming months. Leo’s strong fire energy is beautiful, enthusiastic, energizing, motivating and encouraging, if it is used to much and not channeled properly, we can get burned, it is a fire. Now, in September, the zodiac helps to have more balance in our life, we will be more in equilibrium and we will look for solutions how to solve our problem, by being in service and eliminating unnecessary activity that block our road to reach our goals. We think how to get more secure and stable. Now the universe shifts and we have to ask our self what our priority are and how to prioritize my plan to be able to focus on the most important task.
The first big event in September is The full moon in the water sign at 10 degrees of Pisces, reminding us of the need to think about our spiritual and emotional well being. The key to balance and harmony lies in recognizing and expressing our spiritual needs while keep up orders in our everyday lives.
September 9 is very important key date in September: Mars goes retrograde in Aries until November 13.
When we say Mars, we know, this planets explains how we use our energy, how we channel it, how we work, fight or make sex, this is the planet that describes what motivate us and what we do when we get angry, do we burn out slowly or fast, some of us may let the pressure builds up and then explodes; others fires up quickly and then cool off quickly, it depends on the sign your Mars was during the time when you are born.
Mars can be stimulating, frightening, but always interesting, symbolically, among the other planets in our Solar System. It is the ancient God of War, great amounts of fiery energy, sports, the military, and aggressive behavior. It is also the God of Work in that, without it, we would not be able to function. Mars is energy! It is important how we channel and use our energy to reach our goals. Especially, when Mars turns in retrograde motion, it gets really difficult, unpredictable, some time, rash and reckless. Mars doesn’t care about how much will cost to get to his point or to win, Mars can be wasteful and childish, known to have competitive, impulsive actions.
As Mars has already formed squares with Pluto, casing catastrophic crises, also, Mars squares Saturn (security and structure), we witnessed the massive explosion in Beirut, Lebanon, resulting in an overthrow of their government. Unfortunately, this is likely to erupt into another failed states in a region already in disorder.
Fires have broken out in multiple sites in California and Colorado and the temperature measured in Death Valley, California climbed to a confirmation of 130 degrees, while triple digit temperatures have occurred at the Arctic Circle in Siberia, igniting methane fires, releasing huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The Mont Blanc Glacier in the Italian Alps has collapsed and the Northern Alaska Ice Sheet is breaking up, while the famous Greenland glacier continues to melt. Hurricane Laura, a record level 5, hit Louisiana and Texas destroying hundreds of millions of dollars worth of property. Unfortunately, we might see many more hurricanes in September all the way through November, including one ( literally or figuratively) on election Day!
As Mars turn Retrograde, it will square two more times with Pluto and Saturn and make it difficult again, for economy, also, we may witness severe hurricanes and more storms developing in the US. These three Mars-Pluto alignments will work together, acting like the beginning, middle, and end of the story.
The first alignment took place on August 13th, the second on October 9th, and the final alignment on December 20th.
While Mars is making three squares to Pluto, it is also squares Saturn. This energy will add another layer and color how we experience the coming months. Currently Pluto is at 22 degrees, Saturn is in 25 degrees, both in Capricorn. This explains the longer and more difficult effect of the squares. It probably last not one day, but 5 to 7 days each square, as Mars hits first Pluto, then Saturn. For example, the first square with Pluto was on August 13, but continue longer until Mars bumps with Saturn, too. I am not talking about the long lasting effect over the US, our economy and our life, I meant the time these major events take place at this time of the squares. In other words, the second square will be between October 10-15 and the last, the third one will be by December 20 to 25 of 2020.
Severe hurricanes on the East Coast and severe heat leading to enormous fires burning forests on the West Coast will likely continue this month as Mars goes retrograde in Aries and travels back over its square (conflict) with Saturn and Pluto, especially the week of September 20, other astrologers predict.
Historically, the Mars and Pluto square has been associated with the significant loss of human lives. Many articles and statistic shows a lot of death during the COVID –19.
The good news came from the recent CDC report from Atlanta GA, (WJW) posted on August 30.2020 and it shows 94% of COVID- 19 deaths in US had contributing conditions.
“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new data last week that depicts how many Americans who have died from COVID-19 also had other contributing conditions. According to the report, only 6% of deaths have COVID-19 as the only cause mentioned, revealing that 94% of patients who died from coronavirus also had other “health conditions and contributing causes.”
Finally, we know the truth, there is a virus, but CDC also confirms that mortality death is 1- 1.5 %, that is 98.5-99 % of all effected survived. There is no reason for panic!
Not only September, also, October and November are months that will have Mars Retrograde effect. We live under pressure, election day is close, we are not clear who deserve our vote, who we have to trust? Nature disasters , hurricanes, fires, poverty and unemployment. Anxiety about 5G networking effecting our heath , and more concerns take place in our everyday life.
With all the looming crises in which we are immersed, many of us are simply “giving up”. The polarization of America is making it very difficult to come together and actually do something to address the real issues of our times which would require mutual respect, intelligent debate and a willingness to work together to save humanity and perhaps all life on earth.
We are at a crossroads in history that would offer up to us an escalating trend toward annihilation or a new world bathed in the light of wisdom and understanding.
What we have to do, how to protect, how to survive? The answer is simple: Use and channel your energy wisely!
In order to overcome these fears and to be able to survive during this turbulent time of corruption, aggression, misinformation, catastrophic time, earth quakes and hurricanes, all these outside force, we need to expand, to regain our personal power, to unite and everyone of us to contribute with his / her power and love to create a new world for a better place to live. How? We are all energy and if we send positive vibration, love and compassion we will be able to influence each other and make a change to the world. How we use our energy and where we use it? How we control and raise our energy? These theme will be very important during Mars Retrograde in the fire, warrior sign of Aries.
I wish to share Barbara Rose, RN and Reiki Healer, my friend, mentor and spiritual teacher’s words: “We must develop and use our power verses acting as if the low vibration outside forces are in control ; we must learn how to shift our emotions our lower frequencies to higher levels of consciousness to raise to the 5D energy level.”
In other words, we must increase our vibration being compassionate, appreciative, transporting unconditional love toward everyone and everything, including humans, animals, the earth, the water, everything that brings life to us. If we wish to save the human race and everything living, the whole earth, we must practice compassion, meditation, to pay attention and observe how and what we eat. We have to be conscious and mindful, we must keep our energy pathways open to give and receive energy, love and shared resources. Empathy, kindness, love and unity should be the key words for our collective triumph!
Until next month, spread love and use your energy properly,
