Mars Retrograde, August 2018 ~ Frustration and Tension
Mars retrograde 2018 starts on June 26 at 09°13′ Aquarius and ends on August 27 at 28°36′ Capricorn. Mars retrograde 2018 makes challenging aspects to Venus and Jupiter to create an excessive amount of sexual tension. A restricting Saturn influence turns sexual tension into sexual frustration. Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto are also retrograde which further internalized this frustrating energy. More detail on Mars retrograde 2018 follows definitions of natal Mars retrograde and transiting Mars retrograde.
Natal Mars Retrograde Meaning
Mars retrograde in the natal chart suggests you find it difficult to express your sexuality, competitiveness or strength. Perhaps you struggle with being direct, courageous, or showing initiative. You tend in internalize these normal, healthy expression of Mars energy so that you hesitate, take action at the wrong time, or have some psychological hangups about sexuality or gender.
Basically, this fear of taking strong action and standing up for yourself stems from some past life crisis related to injury and pain. You may have fallen victim to a violent death, war crime or rape. Maybe you were victimized and abused because of your sexuality. It could even be the case that you lost your temper and severely hurt or killed someone.
There are endless possible scenarios of how Mars energy can turn destructive once your adrenaline kicks in and you act on primal instincts, in survival mode. Whatever the case, whether victim or perpetrator, you come into this life with a deep understanding of the pain that results from Mars in a state of rage.
It is understandable, therefore, that you are somewhat cautious about taking risks or leaving yourself in a vulnerable position. While young especially, painful past life experiences may be repeated, though not to the same extreme.
Mars retrograde in your natal chart subjects you to many fated events which are aimed at bringing you out of your shell and teaching you how to express Mars energy safely. Aspects to your Mars and any fixed star conjunctions will give more detail on how to handle Mars retrograde in your natal chart.
Transiting Mars Retrograde
Mars retrograde in transit is a regular cycle occurring every 25 months, lasting 80 days, and spanning 15 degrees of the zodiac. It is the second rarest of the retrogrades after Venus, occurring only 9% of the time. Transiting Mars retrograde is a time for thinking before acting. Fated events and repeating themes will reinforce which of your strong desires need more background work before being acted upon.
Mars retrograde means that whatever area of sexuality or decisive action you have developed, is so important that extra time is needed to take stock and make sure everything in order before you continue. Fated events may occur that could be painful but are needed so you back off and don’t make a major mistake.
It is also possible that you have struggled with naughty Mars behaviors like anger, rage, violence or sexual abuse. If so, the retrograde phase will bring fated events that force you to admit you have some anger management issues. This too, could be a very painful experience for you.
By the time Mars stations direct, you should have come to terms with the relevant issues. This contemplative stage is over and you are ready to come out of your shell and confidently assert yourself and act on your desires.
Mars Retrograde 2018
The chart below for the moment that Mars stations retrograde shows two challenging but weak aspects to Mars. Venus opposite Mars and Mars square Jupiter both have fairly wide orbs so are not a strong influence. A stronger influence on Mars retrograde comes from Sun opposite Saturn with an orb under one degree. This has a restrictive influence on self-expression, similar to Mars retrograde, where it becomes more difficult to express your desire and sexual energy.
Notice there are four other retrograde planets, including Saturn retrograde. This compounds the restriction and inhibition of Mars retrograde. There are no major fixed star close enough to influence Mars stationary retrograde.
Venus opposite Mars increases sexual tension and physical desires. If you are involved in a healthy relationship then the tension can be released with heightened stimulation and enjoyment. An already tense relationships could see tempers boils over because of selfishness or wandering eyes. Even if single, your increased desires still need to be kept in check because of a tendency to be attracted to someone who are not really compatible with. Women or submissive men should be particularly cautious be avoid falling prey to overly aggressive types. A more positive way to release the build up of tension and frustration is through physical or creative outlets such as vigorous exercise, dance or sculpture.
Mars square Jupiter exaggerates or amplifies the sexual tension. Avoid acting rashly without considering the consequences of your daring actions. This is not the time to be going on the attack, especially without provocation, as the result may be loss of face, accidents or injuries. Choose your fights carefully. Although you will feel enthusiastic and pumped up, you will need to moderate your energy output. Otherwise you could burn out, leading to physical or emotional exhaustion.
Sun opposite Saturn blocks self-expression which turns the sexual tension into sexual frustration. Other limiting conditions and restrictions can seem more difficult to surmount because of the difficulty in expressing yourself. Distance or separation between you and others can lead to a sense of rejection or isolation. Your need for companionship is at odds with other people’s need for distance, or it may be that you simply want a break from the extra burdens and responsibilities. The buildup up of frustration is best addressed by plodding along by yourself on some personal goal where you don’t need help from others.
