What is retrograde ? Sometimes planets seem to be going backwards
What will happen? First we need to understand the power of this planet Mars. It is a leader, a force, it can generate war and is prone to a lot of action. If this is the case, when it comes to retro periods, all of the above will not be functioning. So, on the general sense, try not to take action at this time of the year; it is much better to think about what is that you need and have to do in order to obtain what you want. Slow down, introspect, don’t act, think twice before you do or say something.
Who is sensitive ? We all are affected by this planet, but there are some of us that can feel this particular transit more : Aries and Scorpio.
