Welcome to your ⭑ 2022 MARS RETROGRADE ⭑ Survival Guide!
You’ve experienced quite the transformation these last 2 years, with your ruler, Saturn (responsibilities, stepping up) in your sign since 2020, while being squared by Uranus (unexpected events, awakenings). Some of you may feel tired already, but, rest may be elusive, still. After almost two years, here we are again, under the effect of a retrograding Mars! Results oriented ka, kaya this period might be extra frustrating for you! Pag baliktad si Mars, the energy is slower. Goals and tasks take much longer to accomplish, but no worries! If navigated well, you can emerge from this with more wisdom, unscathed and happier even!
‘Tis also the season of laziness, with MARS turning backwards, tapos malamig, maulan. It may seem so difficult to get things done, so it might be best to save significant endeavors either before or after this period. Mars retrograde restricts energy and forward movement, making it difficult to accomplish even the smallest of tasks. Maximum effort usually yields minimum results, kaya nakakawala lalo ng gana.
Also, with Mars also retrograding in Gemini the sign of communication, data and information, clashes of words and thoughts may lead to a standstill of action, and instead of moving forward, natetengga sa arbitrary discussions. Parang court case na stuck sa courts ng ilang taon na, puro appeal, tapos sa daming ebidensya on both ends, hindi na lalo makausad. Puro pasabog, pagalingan, walang nagbibigay, wala din nananalo.
This is not the time to start something new. Instead, it is a good time to revisit and improve upon existing endeavors. Rather than starting new initiatives, it’s better to improve your current projects. This is a time to reflect, bago ulit mag full speed ahead.
Mars starts its reverse motion specifically in your solar 5th House covering the area highlighted below:
The 5th House Represents:
Children ⭑ Joy & Play ⭑ Love Affairs ⭑ Romance ⭑ Inner Child ⭑ Arts & Crafts ⭑ Sports & Hobbies ⭑ The Urge To Produce ⭑ Creative Self-Expression ⭑ The Urge To Influence ⭑ Escape From Responsibilities
Mars turns backwards in your solar 5th house, and for the time being, you might feel that your creativity is blocked. Pwede naman na ineencourage ka lang to try different avenues of expression, para hindi ka ma-kahon kung nasaan ka. Your relationship with your kids may seem tricky for now, too. They may seem more argumentative that usual, and you, more reactive, leading to emotional outbursts. For those who are active in the dating world, todo re-assess mode ka ngayon. Nahanap mo na ba yung “The One” mo, or pang KLKK (konting landi konting kilig) lang talaga siya? Is this worth the effort, or a waste of time? Yan ang mga concerns na susulpot sa panahon na ito.
Reminders during this time:
- This is NOT the time to start dating or start a relationship. Reflect instead. Is this the right person? Make sure kilala mo muna talaga, bago ka mag commit. Friends friends muna, saka nalang mag level up after the retrograde.
- Have more patience with children, may tendency sila to act up and be difficult towards you during this time. Reflect on why, kasi this is the perfect time to troubleshoot.
- There may be blockages and difficulties in finishing your creative projects. Pwedeng mawala ang interest sa isang hobby. If possible, do not over commit to commission work (for example, you’ll agree to make a painting, or to write a creative story, or to sew or create patterns), kasi baka hindi ka makapag deliver.
- Mag ingat sa outbursts of anger/resentment towards your lover/romantic prospect. May tendency kasi ngayon lumabas lahat ng mga sama ng loob na tinago mo, or tinago sa’yo from a long time ago pa. Try to communicate calmly, as not to cause irrepairable damage.
- Thoughts about your exes may fill your mind during this time. One may even make an appearance. The more difficult the break-up, the higher chance of sudden encounters. Wag ka na magulat pag nagkita kayo. Pag nilandi ka, be vigilant! Be ready, just in case!
