Mars is the planet of action and it isn’t very happy moving backwards, even if retrograde is an optical illusion. Libra is the sign of relationships and the combination of Mars in Libra and a retrograde is pretty powerful. The focus was to clean out relationships that weren’t working for you any more. From what I hear from my clients, that is exactly what happened. But not only is Mars about relationships, it is also about activity. Frustration has been in the air because things weren’t moving fast enough. Well, that all will change now. I can tell that the tide has turned already. Just plan to finish those ventures you’ve started and you will see things falling into place now. Finally! Yes, and the official Cardinal Cross is done too. We do still have the remnants of that Cross still hanging on, but the peak is over.
