It’s another big week astrologically. This time around, Mars, is going retrograde, something which only happens about once every two years. Mars is the planet of anger. So, having Mars reversing is a double-edged sword.

On one hand it can mean old arguments are coming back up again. That’s the negative. On the other hand, it can be a time when people lay down their guns, literally or metaphorically.

As I write this, the world is still in the middle of one big argument about masks, lockdowns, and which politicians are for real.

It’s possible that Mars going retrograde will help us all to stop shouting and start realising that life is better when we are not living in a state of constant dispute.


Plus there are other alignments going on in the skies this week which point to happier days for us humans down here on earth.

These include the fact that Mercury, the planet of communications, is going to be making a link to the healing planetoid Chiron. In the interests of full transparency, it has to be said that this alignment is an opposition, which can go either way. But again, if we set our intentions to be nicer to each other, it really does suggest that this is a very good week to stop arguing and start making up.

If you’ve fallen out with someone, for whatever reason, and you want to make things up, this is a really good week to extend that metaphorical olive branch.


Meanwhile, the planet of good luck, Jupiter, is going to start moving forward again. Overall, the week augurs well. Make the most of it!
