As if the days getting shorter and the weather getting colder wasn’t enough to deal with in terms of mood shifting. Now we’re here as the bearer of bad news to tell you that we’re also about to enter a new retrograde. Mercury retrograde tends to affect us the most causing an increase in delays, frustrations, miscommunications and even technological errors.

However, the retrograde effect happens to all planets. Astronomers refer to retrograde when a planet appears to go backward in its orbit, as viewed from Earth. An “apparent retrograde motion,” is an optical illusion. This time it’s Mars’ turn. Mar is the God of War and the ruler of Aries. As the planet of energy, action, and desire it’s bound to impact four zodiac signs in particular more than others from 2022 to 2023:

A Very Long Retrograde Ahead

Mars entered retrograde on October 30 2022 at 25 degrees Gemini. The bad news is that it will continue its journey until January 12, 2023. Despite the spooky season being already behind us, the eerie and darker tones of the fall season are bound to follow us into the holiday season and all the way through to the new year.

This means that we will have to put in all kinds of extra effort to take care of ourselves and make sure we combat any negative feelings that arise until then. Unfortunately, Mars will remain in Gemini until March 25, 2023, when it enters Cancer. The journey till then is predicted to be full of intense disagreements and all-around frustration and anger.

Gemini easily gets bored so there’s a chance you’ll have a hard time staying focused and will lose joy in what once brought you life. If you are one of the four signs below, take extra care.

Preparing For The Full Moon

The energy of the retrograde is powerful as it is, but it’s bound to reach higher potency when combined with the upcoming full moon in Gemini on December 7 in Sagittarius season.

Full moon nights are full of energy that can be harnessed for manifesting and healing power. However, because of the Mars retrograde that’s also in effect, you may have to dig deeper to figure out what it is that you actually need to heal from to manifest your vision. Use this time to put the anger and frustrations aside so that they don’t control you or tamper with your true desires.

Sagittarius: Not Seeing Eye To Eye

Sagittarius your season begins from 22 November and lasts till 21st December. This means that your energy is already ruling during Mars Retrograde. Sagittarius season is all about feeling mentally strong and making the most of each moment. However, to get there, you must first work through the retrograde energy and face the anger that you hold against particular relationships in your life.

It’s no coincidence if you’ve been struggling to see eye to eye with someone. Any usual problems in your relationships that you usually brush off are going to feel worse during this time period, forcing you to confront them. This is your chance to resolve conflict productively so that it doesn’t become destructive.

Scorpio: Unbalanced Give And Take

Scorpio, you’ve always been a complex zodiac as one of the only signs ruled by two planets. On one hand, you’re ruled by Pluto, which pushes you towards transformation and growth. But you’re also ruled by Mars, which is your blessing and your curse. Being ruled by Mars makes you as irresistible as it fuels you with fire and aggression and with it being in retrograde this season, it’s to be expected that you’re going to feel off balance.

You may feel such a deep craving for comfort and intimacy during this time that you give more than you take. You may be willing to partake in casual relationships to fill the void you feel for intimacy without dealing with your fear of it. You’re encouraged to instead use the fire of your desire to rethink your emotional boundaries and to let the right people in.

Gemini: Motivated By Anger

Gemini, be careful of the rouble that awaits you this season. You’re playful and full of life, but this can sometimes make you take unnecessary risks and get caught up in the heat of the moment. Mars will remain in Gemini for a while, forcing you to take a hard look at yourself and assess which parts of your ego are feeding your inner child and making you happy and which parts are making you too child-like that you’re going around throwing tantrums instead of growing.

You will feel angry and irritable because it’s never easy to confront your deeper layers, especially as a sign that tries to make life as fun as possible. Use that anger as motivation to get past it. This retrograde is your chance to let it all out, so you can make space for the pure joy you crave.

Aries: Miscommunication

Your ruling planet is also Mars, and with it being in retrograde for two and a half months, you’re going to struggle. You might feel overwhelmed, which will fog up your brain and make it harder to express yourself. You may feel like you’re losing interest and everything but are unable to explain why. You’re just less inspired all of the sudden.

Take this as a wake-up call to talk things through. Some of the conversations you have might result in heated arguments until you figure out exactly what it is that you want to say. However, the more you talk, the clearer the words will be, helping you better understand how to communicate in general, and heal your relationships.
