Action planet Mars is creeping-crawling back up to full speed direct, pushing through the bramble bushes, booby traps, and energy drains of late Scorpio. The next couple weeks require the utmost caution and thoughtfulness on our parts as we carefully pick through this territory. Our movements are thick with karmic recoil now, as mighty malefic Mars moves through this quite loaded area of the astrological zodiac.
From a previous article:
"During Mars' dip back into Scorpio, we will move back over the emotional, psychological, and energetic wakes of past actions/trajectories while also becoming aware of areas of emotional or energetic over-extension."
With Mars now moving direct, we have officially entered a new two-year cycle related to goals, personal direction, desires, sex life, and mergers of resources and/or energy. Contemplating what we would like to accomplish over the next two years, as well as coming up with some basic ideas as far as how we might get there, is a good exercise at the moment.
We can also sense at this time - if we get very quiet and very still for a moment - the directions, goals, driving desires, and relationship dynamics that have now run their course.
With the degrees of late Scorpio involved, colouring our trajectories for the next two years of life, there is only so much energy to go around. In order to be our most effective, potent, and ultimately successful selves, we must allow some things to come to their organic end, re-investing our energy in what naturally resurrects itself out of those endings.
