Mars has already left its footprint on the year. Named after the Roman god of war and mayhem, it means you don't have to look very far to see his handiwork. One would think that the planet's retrograde (Mars turned retrograde on April 17) would have cooled the fiery anger, but retrogrades tend to make this planet worse. That's because the backwards motion switches Mars’s energy from fight to flight. This creates an atmosphere of fear, panic and hysteria. We see it in our politics, we see it in our media and we see it in our society. But Mars also stands for good things as well, like chivalry, honor and heroism — qualities we aspire to embrace. Over the next five weeks, Mars will be winding up its prolonged stay in Scorpio. We've done the ordeals part. Now it's time to witness the transformations that will arise from them.
Home runs rarely win baseball games. What matters most are the walks, bunts and hits that get you on base. Build on these and you can score big. This is the message of the Venus/Jupiter sextile that will be taking place on July 1. It won't bring you that lucky break that you've been looking for, but it will show you how to build strategically on the momentum of the past few months. This isn't the time to let up. If anything, it's the time to push like you've never pushed before. Do this, and you will see small steps turn into great strides.
