The warrior planet of action Mars has turned Retrograde on 9th September. This means now we are on a roll where we barely feel motivated to get the tasks done. As the Mars Retrograde will last for over 2 months, we really need to be prepared for the chaotic ride.
One of the less frequent Retrogrades, Mars’ reverse motion this year is in Aries. Mars is also the ruler of Aries, which makes it want to assert itself further. The less it can do it while in Retrograde, the more chaos follows for us. Repressed anger will come to the surface, and the physical aspect will suffer more. It’s good to find a hobby where you can let off some steam, like boxing. Mars is here to test our patience. If you can persevere till mid-November, you’ll emerge as a stronger and more mature version of yourself. Here’s how each of the zodiac signs can deal with the Mars Retrograde.
Since it is your ruling planet in Retrograde now, you are the one who is feeling the most heat. Self-expression is going for a toss, and you’re bottling up all your emotions. Instead of bursting on the innocent, find gentler outlets. Try to take the higher ground, and you’ll be much better off.

Childhood trauma might make a comeback, but don’t repress those emotions. Slow down, and sit with your emotions. You need to work your way through it if you want to overcome it for once and all. No use letting the same issues disturb your peace, time and again.
Air-signs are suffering a lot during this Mars Retrograde. The creative juices are not flowing freely, and you don’t even feel motivated. So why not break down the bigger tasks and focus on the small steps?
