This Mars Retrograde, starting June 26 and ending August 12, offers us a ripe time to call the power of our sexuality to help us heal and awaken. We're also beginning a journey of recalibrating the masculine while empowering the feminine.
via Ethereal Culture:
Mars has stationed retrograde in Aquarius, turning direct in Capricorn on August 27. Thus we begin a period of recalibrating our inner masculine, as well as our motivations, anger, and drives. As Mars dances around the South Node, we're cutting ties with the past to make room for a more liberated future. At the same time, we’re reexamining places where we’ve been stuck or oppressed, slicing through karmic knots with our cosmic swords.
Mars rules courage, exertion, and sexuality. These energies are now turning inward for review. This does not weaken us—the opposite is true. During this period, our power emanates from within, with far greater intention and purpose. We’re stepping forward with careful footing, making sure that we’ve rooted in integrity, morality, and an eye toward the greater good.
It’s time to reflect on our deepest drives and motivations. We have the opportunity to heal our anger while releasing deep-rooted patterns of conditioning, from our childhoods and from patriarchal society.
Where have we caused harm? Where might we take greater ownership of our mistakes? At the same time, where have we failed to stand up for ourselves or others?
