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.
Last April, you were just a stone's throw away from a long sought-after prize or goal. It should have been yours, but then you were somehow overtaken by a series of unforeseen circumstances that were beyond your control and that demanded your immediate and undivided attention. You probably assumed that your moment had passed, but you will learn on June 29 that retrograde planets work a peculiar magic of their own. Astonishingly enough, it appears as if that prize or goal is still available. It may be impossible to believe, but you'll see for yourself when the sun trines Mars on July 16.
