your Mars Retrograde 2020: Iwas Pusoy Manual!
Grab a snack, turn on the fan, and let’s start!
Para naman sa mga medyo confused at curious pa, as always, mag Mars Retrograde 101 muna tayo!
Okay so first of all, let us open this session (haha, session talaga) by defining the terms.
1. What is Mars and what does it represent?
For this purpose, we are talking about the planet, Mars (Hindi yung chocolate or yung tawagan ng titas of Manila). Specifically, it’s the 4th planet from the Sun, pagkatapos ng ating beloved Mother Earth.
Mars represents the following:
Drive, Anger, Passion, Work-Persona, Forward Movement, Physical Assertion, Primal Desires, Sexual drive and style, Assertiveness, Impulses, Survival Instincts
In Natal Astrology (yung mag papagawa ka talaga ng birthchart), dito nakikita kung paano ka magalit, kung ano ang work ethic mo, kung paano mo ineexpress ang sexuality mo.
Paano ka ba mag express ng gigil, demure ba, o balahura type?
Sobrang bagal mo ba gumalaw (Mars in Taurus)?
O baka naman ikaw yung tipong laging nagmamadali at sobrang impatient (Mars in Aries).
Weakness ba ang pride mo tapos dapat sila muna ang mag sorry? (Mars in Leo)
Lahat yan ay largely indicated by where your Natal Mars is – meaning, kung saan ito naka-pwesto nung exact moment na pinaganak ka. Para sa mga hindi well versed sa Astrology, parang barbero diba or magic or weird hula type. However, this system is actually based on thousands of years of significant statistical data, and if you give it a chance, you’ll be really amazed with the accuracy.
2. What does it mean when a planet is in retrograde?
Here is a simple, up-front visual guide to what exactly is happening when planets go retrograde:
Para sa mga tipid ang data/mabagal ang net/ or tamad lang mag click, the simplest explanation is this analogy:
Pag nakasakay ka sa auto, tapos may mada-daanan ka na auto na slightly mas mabagal sa’yo, during the time of the overtake, diba pag tumingin ka sa labas, parang umaatras yung sasakyan na naunahan mo? Ganon din sa solar system. Pag na-o-overtake natin si Mars, muka siyang umaatras. Pero sa totoong buhay, hindi naman. Mas mabilis lang ang Earth umandar, kaya nauunahan natin siya.
Now, when a planet is in retrograde, dumadaan siya sa part ng orbit niya na pinakamalapit sa atin. Lumalakas ang energy na nirerepresenta nito, to the point of overload, so ang effect, parang nagkakaroon ng short circuit. In a way, parang may brown out. All the functions of that planet turn inward, bumabaliktad. Nagkakaroon ng confusion at delay, pag dating sa mga bagay ng ni-rerepresenta nito.
3. What does it mean specifically when MARS is in RETROGRADE?
Okay so ito na. Una sa lahat, Of all planets, pinaka rare mag retrograde si Mars, it only happens every 2 and a half years, so it’s quite the event.
Mars represents energy and drive. Pag retrograde si Mars, there is an apparent reduction of energy. The drive to move forward is diminished, and things/situations tend to get stuck. Kumbaga, MABAGAL at TAMAD more than usual ang mga tao, lalo na sa area ng buhay na tatamaan sa personal chart mo. Iba-iba yan per person.
Since mabagal lahat, mas mabilis magka-pikunan. Mabilis pumitik. During this time, we experience situations that make us re-asses how we get angry, how we assert ourselves, how we deal with obstacles.
If your resolve is weak and you are too complacent, these slow-to-progress situations will require you to learn how to move faster, or perhaps be more forceful and assertive. If, on the other hand, you are too hasty and callous, the conflicts that will arise will teach you to learn how to be more patient and understanding. Kasi kung hindi, you will alienate and lose people in the aftermath.
4. How will the 2020 Mars retrograde personally affect you?
Yes, hassle sa muscle, pero don’t panic! Baby ka palang nagyayari na ‘yan every 2 years, ang difference lang ngayon, may cosmic weather report ka, so you’ll know how to prepare better.
The last time MARS turned retrograde was last June 27-August 28 of 2018. Look back and try to remember the circumstances that time, to have an idea of the general Mars Rx climate. Check here for our 2018 walkthrough, to see where it affected you.
Because of the general cosmic climate, expect this retrograde to a little bit trickier than usual. Mars for one, is in it’s home sign of Aries, so malakas talaga ang loob niya. To top it all off, may stand-off sila ni Saturn, the planet of responsibility and limitation, towards the end of the month. Take extra care, it’s better safe than sorry! Forewarned is forearmed!
For precision, there is no substitute for a thorough personal reading from a competent Astrologer (you need your exact birth time and place for that).
Pero kahit wala ‘yon, knowing the general energies at play are still more than helpful. Kumbaga, may partida ka, iwas pusoy. Yung sobrang galit, magiging tampo nalang, yung hiwalayan for good, pwedeng cool off nalang muna.
Magtataka si crush kung bakit lahat mainit ulo… except you!
So pwede ka din maging hero dito, kaya makinig ha, this is valuable information.
Instead of worriying (yes, Virgo, yes, Cancer, I’m looking at you), i-save ang energy sa planning. ‘Di ba nga, the best defense is a good offense?
Tutal naman nagkagulu-gulo na rin lang din ang buong 2020 edi todo na to, rambol na! Matira matibay! huy joke lang.
Game na, just sit back, relax, and let Filstrology break it down for you!
