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.
You'll have to choose between the hell you know and the heaven you don't on June 27. You've reached the end of the road with a certain situation and can't continue as is. This could pertain to a relationship, job or even the street where you live. But this change needn't be dramatic or world-shaking. It looks like it will be more along the lines of a transition. Simply let go of those things that have outlived their purpose and invest more creative energy in those dawning affections and aspirations. Do this, and you'll discover that you really can get there from here.
