|Mars stations Retrograde on May 27, 2016 |
(Greek Ares, Roman Mars)
The Sun is now in Gemini, the 3rd sign of the zodiac and the final sign of the spring season. Summer is only a month away!
What I love about astrology is that it continuously reminds us of the cycles of nature, the mystery and magic of the cosmos, and our place as part of this grand experience of life.
Mercury, the ruling planet of Gemini is now direct in Taurus, and in close connection with Jupiter and Pluto this week. After having been retrograde for the past few weeks we can now gain clarity more easily on making practical progress towards the growth and changes that will lead to the abundance and prosperity we want. This is a great time to put plans into place that help you feel more assured and secure in your path forward.
Venus enters Gemini on Tuesday May 24, 2016 at 5:44 pm EDT. She stands across the sky from Mars retrograde in Sagittarius on Tuesday as well.
Understanding a significant other's intentions and motivations, especially in terms of romantic relationships, may not be as easy understand as you’d think. Mercury is direct, so that helps provide a sense of grounded, realistic thinking. But with Mars retrograde you need to more closely consider what the expectations and motivations of the other person is, instead of just focusing on your own point of view.
If you are dealing with someone that is demonstrated frustrated energy, or anger, remember that the love of Venus can disarm Mars. Kinder, gentler, more loving words can help calm flames.
Though you may have every intention of embodying love and sharing that with another, you may not be on the same page energetically now. We are all learning about how to refine the use of our energy and direct our willpower at this time, and it can require personal space to reflect. If you reach out with the best of intentions, but the connection isn’t being received as you’d hope, providing a bit of extra space for the other person to figure themselves out can be a necessary compromise. What you can do to help your relationships align better, is to listen and be more receptive now.
In personal ways, it’s a great time to think more loving thoughts about yourself and others, and to speak in kinder, gentler terms. Gemini tends to have a more superficial approach, taking things at face value and looking mainly at the surface. But now, with Mars retrograde, it’s important that we go the extra mile to be sympathetic and understanding of the more complex, deeper qualities of one another.
Motivations are changing gears. Those who wish for a grander, freer, more adventurous life experience, can feel frustration now. If you feel like you’re being held back from living up to your potential, anger and resentment are likely reactions.
Frustration can be used to your advantage though, to help you gain clarity on the changes that are required of you to step up to the next level.
If someone you're in a relationship isn't demonstrating a more retracted stance in terms of expressing passion, the flip side for some shows that passions can actually be increased significantly with the power of Mars charging within. Those who are naturally in touch with their core, primal energy can find passions to be heightened. Love and passion are complex and can take some on a roller coaster ride now.
Working with primal universal energy such as in tantric yoga, or root chakra energy along with the heart chakra can teach you a lot about passions and attractions on a more spiritual, energetic level.
On Thursday, Jupiter and Saturn are at odds. This further emphasizes the desire to live a better life, but obstacles can get in the way of your bigger vision. This can lead to good things though. Solutions are a result of facing and admitting problems. With Mercury direct now, in harmony with Jupiter and Pluto, it’s a great time to create a plan. You will learn through the process, how to surmount obstacles. The need for better can have you moving mountains and the rewards can eventually be better than expected.
The hidden benefit is that what’s in your way can actually force you to consider bigger ideas.
If you don’t know what your purpose is or can’t see the big picture of your life, this is a great time to brainstorm smart ideas that can create stability. Extra focus on how to have a greater sense of security and optimism about your work and thus your finances is recommended. Your obstacles to a prosperous, abundant lifestyle can provide the strong impetus you need to figure out how to improve your income levels.
When there is frustration and you feel restricted from a more joyous life, it can lead you to work harder toward your goals, helping you to figure out more options and opportunities available.
Do be careful that you don’t make mountains out of molehills this week. The obstacles in your way don’t have to be overemphasized. Instead, use the awareness of the obstacle as your motivation to improve yourself and get your life in order.
On Friday, Mars retrograde enters Scorpio at 9:51 am. EDT. Mars will be in Scorpio until August 2, 2016.
For the next two and a half months honest self-analysis will be quite necessary for all of us. Your fluctuating energy levels can be your guide to self discovery. This can also be a time where you look at what you’ve suppressed or are hiding about yourself and come to terms with your reality and your truth.
Internal fears and anxieties can also reveal themselves and need to be faced. But, as Carl Jung has said, there is no coming to light without facing the dark. The universe operates in a spectrum of relativity, of positive and negative. Negativity helps remind us of how important the goodness of the positive is.
If you are the type of person that takes action and is motivated by your fears, rather than love, you will come to terms with how this lower type of energy is operating in, and affecting, your life. Once you realize how detrimental fears can be to your energy, you will be that much more motivated to make the necessary changes to become more positive.
Fears about financial resources may be revisited as well, but with Mercury in Taurus now, you should be able to figure out smart ways to increase financial income to feel more level and secure. It's a matter of focus.
Venus in Gemini over the next few weeks can help you find ways to increase more loving thoughts to help counter fears that may come to the surface during Mars retro in Scorpio. Positive affirmations can help alleviate much stress and are highly recommended. Time in nature, surrounding yourself with beauty and artistic inspiration, and being in the company of those that are positive thinkers is a must.
Life is meant to be enjoyed. Facing, and then letting go of your fears will help you to enjoy life more. The process of self discovery and transformation takes time, but it’s worth it.

Taurus: Mercury is direct in your sign now, encouraging you to think better about yourself and focus on your future. Money matters come into focus for you this week. Talking about what you want is important to help you to attract ideas that help you manifest a more prosperous reality. Appreciation of language and the arts stimulates your creative ideas immensely. Discuss what you love and what you want, and you’ll feel more grounded, alert, secure and focused. Music and poetry can bring beauty and light into your life. Charming qualities are more notably effective in business and sales now. Others may ask for your advice more than usual now. Focusing on feeling more grounded, motivated and secure benefits your relationships.
Gemini: Happy birthday month! The Sun is now in your sign, and Venus enters your sign this week. Mercury is also direct now. This is great for your self esteem. You could find yourself feeling more attractive and beautiful. The daytime has a way of giving you energy, and the Sun reminds you of how you too can shine fully by being yourself authentically. In the arena of work and daily life you are likely to discover what isn’t working so you can fix it and be more effective. It will take time, but you will discover much about recreating your lifestyle and improving your energy levels all around.
Cancer: We all wish to enjoy life in one way or another. For you this week, the focus is on being emotionally charged with a feeling of fortune so that you can manifest and create a life that is in line with your highest wishes. It won’t happen overnight. Karma takes time to develop into the direction you want. People in your social circle can give you down to earth, practical how-to advice worth noting. The key is to ask for other people’s opinions. Accessing your internal world of creative resources is recommended to release stress and find your truth.
Leo: Go out and enjoy socializing, especially during the day. People with lovely, creative, attractive personalities are likely to show up in your life. The sunshine is your beacon. Home may not be where you find your best use of energy now. Though you don’t want to neglect what needs to be done at home, you need to find a balance by being out and in the company of others to feel best. Thoughts, ideas and discussions that weren’t working in the career front should start to find greater clarity now. Prosperous ideas should be easier to find.
Virgo: Mercury direct brings an extra boost of positive energy your way. You have great potential to grow towards a more prosperous, abundant and happy life. Creating and manifesting good things by being diligent and focused will come easier to you. Positive self esteem and knowing that you are worthy is the most important quality to grow now. Your thoughts have the power to manifest your reality. Reading books now will expand your worldview and teach you more about what’s possible for your life. Move forward with gratitude. Your career is most blessed when your heart is in it this week.
Libra: What you think determines so much of what you experience. A loving perspective about the world and the people in it helps you attract blessings. Where you’re at now is not forever. You get to change your reality, and it starts with what you’re thinking about. Being lighthearted will bring much wisdom your way. If money matters are stressing you out in any capacity, you may need to access financial resources you don’t usually consider. The process will help you to determine what your best use of energy is, and through it you can rise like a phoenix from the ashes.
Scorpio: Self awareness can take a lot of energy. A lot of people live on autopilot for most of their lives. Going with the flow has its benefits, but too much flow and not enough directed energy can leave you lost and wandering aimlessly. The personal assessment being asked of you now will ultimately change you for the better. Any frustration and doubtful energy that arises, know that it’s only temporary and can be turned around. Your instincts can help guide you. Conversations with others can also help ground you with clearer thoughts. What you are personally most passionate about will be slowly unveiled over the coming weeks.
Sagittarius: Though you have Saturn and Mars retrograde in your sign, Mars will be leaving this week, not to return until August. This will give you a shift in perspective and take a bit of pressure or stress off your more personal sense of self worth and identity. The shifts leads to discovering more about what the big picture of life is all about, not just your own, but everyone’s. What we are all collectively doing that impacts the world, comes into question. What you are doing as part of the whole becomes clearer as mercury goes direct. Improvements in work, money and career benefit from a more organized, logical approach.
Capricorn: Those you socialize with are coming into question this week. Are the friends and acquaintances you associate and interact with bringing you the kind of energy you want? What is their energy really like, and what kind of energy do they inspire in you? Those in your life will have you question how you need to change your own energy. A smarter, more creative and secure way forward is on offer. Your thoughts and ideas will gradually become clearer this week helping you to focus on your biggest wishes. Let go of energy that isn’t serving you so you can tap into your own power.
Aquarius: Your career comes more into focus later in the week as Mars retrogrades. Your goals will begin going through a transformation. Discovering your true motivations will play a big role in the changes that take place within you. You will also need to pay closer attention to your energy levels so you can navigate what your priorities are. If progress is slower than you wish your frustration can lead to refining your goals. Down to earth discussions with family and those close can provide you clearer insights into gaining stability. If you feel like your social life is using up a lot of your time, you’ll be prodded to use your resource of time towards bigger picture opportunities now.
Pisces: Communications should improve for you all around this week and positively impact your relationships. Expressing your more charming, down to earth qualities can add warmth and light to your life, especially regarding home and family. A more loving attitude and kinder words brings greater serenity. Learning becomes more personal later in the week and continues for months. Have a look at what fears you have that are holding you back from experiencing the world in bigger ways. Analyzing the way your mind works has a way of releasing what has been pushed under the rug. Through the process of self-analysis you can find your true motivations and aspirations in life. Talking is your key to discovery now.
