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.
Months ago, you got the message that you needed to be somewhere else in your life. Maybe it came to you in a dream, a vision or a travel brochure. Whatever the means, the planets urged you to pursue a new path and so you made certain changes in your life in order to do that. That was months ago and right now you're probably feeling like you're chasing some mirage in the desert. Thankfully, the sun/Neptune trine on July 3 will reassure you that sacrifices weren't made in vain. You truly are entering one of the most fulfilling and enriching chapters of your life.
