Mars becomes Progressive On
June 29, 2016 (Wednesday)
Before Mars becomes retrograde it enters into retrograde zone and starts slowing down. Before it becomes stationary and starts moving into backward direction, it keeps moving into forward direction with retarded speed.
Mars remains into stationary motion for some moments before it starts moving backward.
The same is true while Mars becomes progressive i.e. when it starts moving into forward direction. Before Mars becomes progressive it remains into retrograde zone and starts moving into forward direction till it gains full speed.
The retrograde period is inappropriate for activities requiring the normal flow of Mars initiative.
Mars retrograde probably isn’t the best time to begin a new exercise program, either. Again, the underlying meaning is that energy is lacking for external activity, so a program that begins under Mars retrograde may fizzle quickly.
When Mars is retrograde, it depletes the vitality so that it is never a time to initiate. Whoever initiates loses, a new project, a great love, an argument, a lawsuit, or an international war. With a new project, it will fizzle out and never really go anywhere. With a hot romance, it too fizzles and it rarely gets to the alter.
So it really is a very good time to find what it is you want with respect to Mars-related activity, even if waiting a bit.
Matters commenced while Mars is retrograde will be frustrated and plagued with disruptions until they finally fizzle out. At this time, people become irritated when activities do not run smoothly.
Mars-ruled types find themselves more inclined to sit back and review matters in a more detached or impersonal way. They feel more patient to wait on circumstances to unfold before they take action.
