This month you know that some big changes are heading your way. You’ll feel the rumblings of life become quieter, similar to the way everything comes to a dead silence before a major storm. By the end of the month, that dead silence will be palpable, and you’ll know that it’s time to take a long, hard look at what is keeping you stuck in that rut of yours. You know the one I’m talking about, the one that has become unbearable.
You honestly want to move forward in your life in a new and positive direction. That’s the good news. The not-so-good news is that before you can make any steps forward, the universe has recognized it needs to stop you in your tracks so you can do some remedial work. A course correction in the way you go about getting what you want in life is necessary. Actually, it’s essential, so don’t fight it. There is no use. Mars is turning retrograde this month in your sign. Although you may feel a bit “off” in every way, the truth is, it’s on.
Mars is the planet responsible for action, energy, motivation, and stamina. It’s the warrior energy within all of us, what makes us want to fight for something or win at anything. Mars is sex, entrepreneurial efforts, and anger. It’s the gas that drives you and keeps you going. So what happens when Mars turns retrograde in Aquarius?
Initially, you might feel as if you’ve lost your mojo. Ambition, motivation, and even overall energy might very well take a dip. You could feel like hunkering down and not doing much of anything, but this is only because you know that in order to properly execute the goals related to the next phase of your life, you’ll need to quietly and carefully recalibrate. If you try to push anything ahead recklessly, it rarely succeeds — and you know this. The opportunity you’ll have to carefully shift into a new and more productive action pattern between June 26 and August 27 will ultimately serve you well.
So this month, if you’re feeling a bit worn out, slowed down, and silent, try to see it as a blessing. You are now the quiet before what is sure to be a magnificent storm of awakening in the distance.
