Can you feel the intense almost palpable energy?
Mars and Pluto are going retrograde on the 17th and 18th April.
This energy has been building up all week.
When planets station to go retrograde their energy is at its most powerful.
And since both Mars and Pluto are such powerful planets, this energy is extreme right now. Both intense and deep.
As well as the unusual event of Mars and Pluto turning retrograde together adding to the intensity.
We are also seeing an unusual amount of Earthquakes as these two Titans slow to a halt.
It can feel a bit like a train suddenly screeching to a halt at full speed.
Or like a pressure cooker building up ready to explode.
Anything that has to give, will give now. Something has to be released.
The secret is to harness this power and give it direction. Once harnessed you will find you can finally make a breakthrough to any changes needed to be made.
Especially when it comes to personal internal changes and transformation as the retrograde energy turns inwards.
Whether it is emotional habits, patterns of behaviour that need to be changed, a huge surge of energy is available to you now.
In relationships its a good time for getting to the heart of a matter as well as having deep conversations and charged erotic (instead of arguments )is possible now.
There is a real quest for truth within and without.
One important question to ask yourself is, how have you been using your power? Do you feel empowered or have you been giving it away? Now is the time to readjust, rebalance, and reclaim your power.
It is inportant to learn to adjust to this shift in energy without letting it be destructive to self and others.
There may be a feeling that you need to withdraw and spend time on your own in order to internalise this energy in order to adjust and make full use of it.
Feeling frustrated and irritable is possible now with tempers running high.
Awarness is the key.
Mars retrograde happens every two years and is an important astrological event.
The energies are building up now and could well culminate on the full moon in Scorpio on the 22nd April. As Mars and Pluto are the ruler of Scorpio.
The energy will become easier to handle as we adjust and reconnect with our inner power.
We are capable of making important breakthroughs and changes leading to more empowerment and where needed deep inner healing as well as gaining deep inner strength, helping us to move mountains, up until or when Mars goes direct on June 29th.
“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them”
