The planet Mars explains how we use our energy, what motivates us; how we channel it, how we work, fight or make sex. Mars is the Lord of the fire sign Aries!
Марс is the ancient God of War, great amounts of fiery energy, sports, the military, and aggressive behavior. It is also the God of sex, work and action, without Mars we would not be able to function. Mars is energy!
It is important how we channel and use Mars energy to reach our goals. Especially, when Mars turns to retrograde motion, it gets really difficult, unpredictable, some time, rash and reckless. Mars doesn’t care about how much will spend or how much will cost to reach his goal or to win, Mars can be wasteful and childish, known to have competitive, impulsive actions.
Venus is the planet of love, it represent feminine energy, Mars is the counterpart of Venus, it is the masculine energy.!
Mars is the image of the male, lover, soldier, the pioneer, the captain. Everything that burns, cuts or penetrates belongs to Mars, like needles, surgical operations, surgeons, they all represent Aries or Mars energy. My advice to all: postpone every surgery during mars retrograde, unless it is life threatening.
Mars will start it is Retrograde cycle September 9 until November 13.
The sex life is the most effected , as Mars rules sex, ambition, and anger, so when the planet goes retrograde, these areas of our life can be influenced or changed, temporarily. Some may get depressed, other angry, remember, it is only temporary. We need to focus on what brings us joy and find time for relaxation. It is important during Mars retro to remain calm.
For work and business, the old management system suggested using the Carrots and Stick technique for best result. It is where we alternate the use of Carrots and Stick methods for better result. It is a big NO! NO! style to be used now, especially when Mars Retro. Pushing, prodding, threatening, punishing and being aggressive is much less effective than dangling a motivation. Remember, pushing through an obstacle or situation with pure will power during this period often results in a crash not in a positive outcome.
