Mars Direct: Ready to Rock Again
Fire up your engines. Mars, the planet of drive and ambition, wakes up from a three-month nap today. Mars has been retrograde (moving backward) since January 23, making it harder to stay motivated, focused and on point. Getting things done has involved a lot more pressure and angst, or shutting out the world to concentrate. Mars gives us life-force energy, so having it back in direct (forward) motion propels us into action. Welcome the new on Friday the 13th!
Mars is in Virgo, the sign of health and fitness, a great time to fire up the spring training. If you've been in a winter slump with your eating and exercise, Mars in Virgo will get you back on the horse (or bike … or elliptical). Mars has been in Virgo since November 10, 2011, and will remain in that sign until July 3. Check your monthly horoscope for more on how Mars in Virgo affects your sign!
