We rarely need to be reminded when Mercury turns retrograde: we know instantly because our communication systems start acting up and we can rarely get anywhere on time and in a straight line. But what happens when Mars turns retrograde?Mars performed a reverse thrust back in mid-April and after roughly ten weeks in retrograde it gets back on course. In ancient astrological lore it is said that wars started on a retrograde Mars end in defeat for the instigator.
Mars is, of course, the planet of war but it also has much to do with sport. Competitive activities and sports suffer from a surprising number of problems related to past actions when Mars is retrograde. This time round we discovered that 14 of 31 Russian athletes at the Beijing Olympics (2008) had tested positive for performance enhancing drugs.
And intriguingly some of those athletes, most notably Maria Sharapova, who tested positive for the drug Meldonium, may well have their suspensions overturned before the Rio Olympics, when Mars will be direct.So, if something in your life suddenly veered of the tracks in mid-April, it could be back in business in the coming weeks.
Fasten your seat-belts. Whether or not you are off on your travels, you are certainly in for a thrilling ride...
