We began the month of May with 5 retrograde planets, and now we are down to three, the most significant being Mars.
Mars retrogrades back into the sign Scorpio Friday, May 27, at 9:51 AM, EST.
Mars will remain in this sign until August 2, when it moves back into Sagittarius. Mars will turn direct at 23 degrees of Scorpio June 29. Thus, the first 9 months of the year, Mars remains in two signs: Scorpio and Sagittarius. Mars retrogrades approximately once every two years.
As Mars retrogrades back through Scorpio you have revisit situations that occurred earlier this year, especially the second half of February into early March, as Mars will retrograde back to 23 degrees.
Retrograde Mars slows things down, tends to make people tired and angry, and more accident prone, and prone to minor illnesses. As with all retrograde planets, this is a karmic cycle, and many important situations in your life may occur now. Mars rules, men, sex, our actions (which may be convoluted or indirect), guns, war and aggression.
In Scorpio, Mars is in the most intense of signs and the natural ruler of the eighth house of death, taxes, other people's money, debt and change and transformation, and it is these issues we will be dealing with.
