I hope you are getting your flow on.
As you know, because you read my whole article ---today (Saturday) and tomorrow (Sunday) Mars and Saturn are turning retrograde.
Mars makes its move 11:24am EST March 1
Saturn makes its move 11:19am EST March 2
I wrote about both planets and their direction change in the new moon report but I want you to also have other astrologers’ take. All of these astrologers are on my favorite links (to the right).
I think Marina at DarkStar did a super write up on our Martian Warrior --Here is a snippet but go to the LINK for her whole piece. It is VERY thoughtful.
Mars stations retrograde on March 1 2014. Mars will traverse slowly backwards from 27º to 9º Libra. Like all retrogrades this period gives us a chance to look at things from a right-brain perspective. The effect is cyclical not linear, it is internalized and intuitive.

This must be done before….. GO TO LINK FOR FULL ARTICLE
And as always Mikey Lutin who I believe is astrologers poet laureate has a lot to say about this period we are in.
