- April 11: Uranus Shadow…. 20º Aries 30′
- April 17: Mars RX 8º Sagittarius 54′ (Antares)
So here we are, the week that Uranus (which can be quite sparky) returning to its retrograde position of late December 2015. This usually kicks people in the pants — with the realization that certain startups, certain ideas to support those group efforts, may be up for a serious re-evaluation. Are the people hired to do the job doing it, not that invested, confused, these are all questions needing to be addressed because Mars is retrograde starting on April 17 at 8º Sagittarius, very close to Saturn.
It is important to discern between who isn’t doing the job, who doesn’t want the job, or, who just needs some help, a conversation, a meeting to get back on track There is a difference between not invested and someone who needs help. Remember that, watching the words carefully, as discussions ensure. With Mars stationing at 8º Sagittarius which happens to be the fixed star, Antares, which is in the heart of the Scorpion and considered one of the four royal stars of the zodiac, this is a particularly important time for review as Mars will not move direct until June 29!
Antares is the heart of the constellation Scorpius (Scorpio) and is considered one of the four Royal stars. It burns red like Mars who will be conjuncting it at its retrograde…so no wonder there is so much anger flying around the world right now. The word, “Antares”, means anti-Aries, or, rival to Mars, and, yet, here they are, meeting together suggesting that perhaps — enough is enough when it comes to violence.
The key thing to remember over the course of the next few weeks is: Before you do or say anything, stop, think, step away from the fight, step away from the confrontation, you and others will be better for it — and keep this as your practice at least until Mars goes direct at late June.
