Mars moves direct at 28 degrees Capricorn- 27 Aug 2018 at 10.05 am EDT
Our dog Prince (German Shepherd mix) is very sensitive to planetary activations, especially the New and Full Moons. He was very active yesterday and I thought it was the Pisces Full Moon but his active energy went well into the evening. Everything he was doing was a no-no. He was grabbing pillows off the couch, attacking his dog bed, and stealing shoes. When we let him out in the backyard he barked at everything even though nothing was there. He just would not settle down.
Then I realized Mars (assertive and disruptive energy) was getting ready to move forward. Prince has the Sun in Pisces and the Moon in Aries. Mars rules his Aries Moon. His behaviour was annoying then I realized I was reacting to the Pisces Full Moon (sensitive emotions) and Mars moving forward (change). I have Moon in Pisces and Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Aries. When Mars went retrograde back into Capricorn (delays and restriction) on Aug 12 he was squaring my Venus (creative expression). The past two weeks have been frustrating. Prince was just mirroring my feelings of restriction. I was in resistance. Thank you Prince for showing me that in order to be in the flow I need to release feelings of limitation. And reminding me I can change how I feel.
When planets are in retrograde it is review, redo, and revision time. We have been in retrograde season this summer with up to 7 planets moving backward. Jupiter (expansion and growth) was retrograde March 08 to July 10. Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) was retrograde July 26 to Aug 19. He is still in his retrograde shadow (realignment time) until Sept 02. Saturn in Capricorn (building a strong foundation or restriction) Chiron in Aries/Pisces (healing rejection and abandonment wounds) Uranus in Taurus (breaking free from what is no longer of value) Neptune in Pisces (illusion or truth) and Pluto in Capricorn (transformation leading to empowerment) are all still retrograde. It really has been review and revision time.
Mars went retrograde June 26 at 09 degrees Aquarius, so he has been on his backward journey for two months. He first entered his retrograde shadow May 12 to 16 when he was at 28/29 degrees Capricorn. He will leave his retrograde shadow on Oct 10 when he again reaches 09 degrees Aquarius. For the next six weeks we are in realignment time. For the last two months we have been in revisioning time. Focus on what you want to experience in your life and Mars will support you to create whatever that is. While he is in Capricorn to Sept 10/11 our Animal Totem guides are Snow Goose, following your dreams and vision (Northern Hemisphere) and Flicker Woodpecker, spiritual transitions (Southern Hemisphere). When he re-enters Aquarius in September our guides are Otter, companionship and sharing your gifts of healing (Northern Hemisphere) and Salmon, courage and determination to walk your new path (Southern Hemisphere). Wherever you live these Totems are guiding you. As Mars (action) gains more forward motion everything will move forward for you.
