Mars Direct

Take action as Mars begins moving forward

By Tarot.com Staff

Action planet Mars is all about moving forward. However, during retrograde, even this fiery planet needs a breather. Mars Retrograde will next occur starting January 10, 2027 and won't move direct again until April 1.

If you've still felt a bit stuck when trying to make headway in work, love or life in general, Mars' retrograde period could be to blame. Mars rules our general approach to life, so in retrograde it forces us to re-examine the ways we do things -- from work habits to our tendencies in love and relationships. But that period of uncertainty is about to end.

Mars Retrograde is a confusing time, because the intense influence of Mars can make us see clearly where we can make improvements that will pack the biggest punch. But at the same time, Mars' move in the "wrong" direction makes it all but impossible to focus that motivation and turn it into action.

When Mars turns direct, we'll suddenly see ways to overcome roadblocks to success. If you haven't been able to get a project off the ground, or to clearly express yourself to a partner or friend, the warrior planet will suddenly show you how -- and push you ahead.
