Here we are again, with another Mars retrograde period. With Mars being your ruling planet, you are more affected than most when it turns retrograde. 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 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 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 3rd House, covering the area highlighted below:
The 3rd House Represents:
Siblings ⭑ Language ⭑All Forms of Communication ⭑ Extended Relatives ⭑ Logic & Reason ⭑ Early School Experience ⭑ The Mental Ego ⭑ The Concrete Mind ⭑ Certifications/Accreditations ⭑ Local Neighborhoods ⭑ Local Travel ⭑ Vehicles and Roads
Mars starts its backward motion in your solar 3rd House, and possible issues regarding communications and short term travel are likely to come up . Mis-interpretation is to be expected, especially pag dating sa mga kapatid mo, or mga kapitbahay. Medyo mabilis ka din malito ngayon, so double, triple check important information before sharing with others, or making decisions based on it. Avoid mindless gossiping, as this may lead to unnecessary arguments. You might feel a bit of tension in your social interactions, and callous words that you say may lead to awkward situations. Hindi kasi free flowing and spontaneous ang energy mo during this time, kaya medyo off ang pakiramdam.
Reminders for this time:
- This is NOT a good time to travel, malamang kasi magkaroon ng madaming delays. Perhaps you get stuck somewhere, mawalan ka ng gamit, masiraan ng auto, etc. Kung di naman maiiwasan, just make sure your vehicle is tuned up, safe, and that you have spare tires and access to tools always. Have contingencies, prepare plan B,C,D, just in case!
- Be mindful of the words you use, especially when talking to your siblings or extended relatives (Aunts, Uncles, Cousins). May tendency kasi ngayon lumabas yung mga deeply rooted na tampo or sama ng loob. Be kind, and try your best to be understanding and considerate, kahit na ‘di sila ganon sayo. Unfair, pero hayaan mo na, ganyan talaga pag may retrograde. Good karma yan.
- Be careful with what you post on social media. ‘Wag post ng post ng hindi ka nag f-fact check, or pag heightened ang emotions mo! This is very important, so take note! Challenges and misrepresentation when it comes to self-expression and sharing your thoughts or ideas are likely to happen now, and any unchecked postings might cause trouble for you later on.
- Be PATIENT! You might feel a magnified sense of being unheard, or that people don’t ‘get’ you, and this brings frustrations in your daily interaction. This is the time to review kung may kailangan ka ba i-improve sa manner of communicating mo. Malabo ka ba talaga kausap? Baka naman totoo, so ‘wag na mainis, this is the perfect time to troubleshoot!
