It's more wrapped up in his self-worth issues like income, job status and does he even like what he does for a living. This is a time when you need to be more friend than lover.

Mars turns retrograde in your zodiac sign on March 1. Be ready to experience a drop in energy — particularly where your relationship is concerned.

You might feel like you've gone too far and that you should backtrack and make “nice.” This would not be a good idea. If anything you need to keep on pushing forward or you risk losing all the ground you've gained.
