Mars Retrograde Reprint & Update

COSMIC UPDATE from Cynthia--July 16th 2018

(Plus a Reprint from June 27th 2018 re: Mars Retrograde) 

 The Summer Energies are really HEATING UP!

With three eclipses this summer, plus SEVERAL planets in retrograde at once (including Mars, and very soon, Mercury too), we are in a time of INTENSE cosmic shift.

To learn more about the effects of eclipses, you can refer to Cynthia's article on this site--CLICK HERE. 

(If there are still openings at the time you are reading, you can also get to the page to enroll in Cynthia's group eclipse teleclass from this eclipse article page.)

Solar eclipse



       With Mars retrograde (and Mercury soon to follow), not to mention some extremely powerful eclipses, each day brings a new surprise this summer--some will delight, other surprises will not be as welcome!  For we are in a time of cosmic shift and re-arranging, a time of releasing and letting go.  Don't fight the release, instead, lean into and let go and allow!

   For whether the changes and shifts you experience this summer feel pleasant or unpleasant at the moment, know that each and everyone of these shifts you are experiencing right now provide an opportunity for SOUL GROWTH & ADVANCEMENT.  And as a result of these powerful shifts, when it is all said and done, you will never be the same again!  So let's align our minds & intentions with the positive energies of the Universe, and concentrate on loving, hopeful and uplifting thoughts, so that we may arise from the fires of transformation stronger and more beautiful than ever before!  Namaste.

      For more info about these powerful shifts this summer (and at other times too), please subscribe to my Cosmic Newsletter, and/or follow me on FB.  (I"m listed as Cynthia Killion, Psychic Cynthia.)  Below you will find a re-print of an article I wrote for my Cosmic Newsletter subscribers back on June 26th 2018 about MARS retrograde.  




 MARS RETROGRADE (June 26th-Aug 27th 2018) 

Time to Get Your Zen On!

(Reprint from Cosmic Newsletter June 27th 2018)

By Rev. Dr. Cynthia Killion (Psychic Cynthia)


QUICK PREVIEW of this edition:   Mars began its retrograde yesterday (June 26th 2018) and stays in retrograde up until August 27th 2018.  (Which is why, try as I did, I just couldn’t this newsletter done in a timely manner yesterday—those retrograde energies hit me hard.)  Did I mention too that with Mars going retrograde, we now under the rays of FIVE retrograde planets simultaneously?  Perhaps it is a good time to lay down and take a nap for a little while, lol.  In any case, with Mars now retrograde until August 27th, these next 9 weeks are good for reviewing and reconsidering the path that you are on, and slowing down and taking some time to get re-charged and renewed.  Please keep reading below for more info. 


One more thing--Please keep in mind that this is MARS retrograde we are talking about here, and not Mercury retrograde (that will start in about another month).  This Mars retrograde only happens about every two years, so it is an important shift with many effects on our day to day lives, and is worth looking into. 

         Dear Friends, hello there.  I started writing on this for you early in the afternoon on Tuesday, right before Mars was about ready to go retrograde.  I figured that the writing of this newsletter would go the same as it usually does—that is, with me sitting down at my computer and basically pounding/channeling the whole thing out in an hour or two at once.  Man, did I figure wrong!   I don’t think I’ve EVER been so easily distracted while writing a newsletter before.  (And that’s saying a lot, since I’ve been writing this on-line newsletter since 2001.)  Not to mention, I had planned to start on the newsletter much earlier in the day, but found that I was more interested in tending to my garden or taking a nap—I just couldn’t seem to focus well on the somewhat left-brain activity of writing.  For that matter, I couldn’t seem to focus well on much of ANY activity.  I felt a bit like a slug! (Very unusual for me.)

       What can I say?  I was REALLY feeling the Mars retrograde energies.  My cats and parrots weren’t helping much either, as they were all laying around taking naps for most of the afternoon.  They really know how to set a sleepy vibe.  Did I mention too that we had a surprise rain in the middle of all of this?  (Nothing like a summer rainstorm to lull you away from your work.)   Motivation was very slow in coming to me.  I didn’t exactly feel “down”.  But I certainly didn’t feel UP either!

          Today is better, as I seem to have given myself permission to lean into it and just move with the energies.  In fact, I decided this morning that with all these retrogrades happening right now, it is as good of a time as any to go ahead and take a summer stay-cation and get myself recharged and rested up.  (Sure, I’ll still work a little on the staycation, but mostly in the background and doing solo preparatory tasks—no readings, classes or formal meetings for the next week or so.)  This is my way of cutting myself a little slack—something that I feel is very much needed at this time of Mars retrograde, when energies, vitality, and motivation tend to run lower than normal.

          For with all these retrogrades happening at once (and especially with Mars, the planet of action & momentum in retrograde), it seems to be the time to get your Zen on and relax a little.  Just like my friend Smokey is doing here in the photo below, he is who is master of the Zen art of relaxing and going with the flow.

 The Path is Not Straight or Clear Right Now

 (So be patient and yield to the flow)

          What about YOU?  Did you feel it?  Did you feel a little bit more sluggish or slow moving than usual on last Tuesday when Mars went retrograde?  Did your motivation to get stuff done seem lower than usual?  Or perhaps you are feeling it TODAY, after the Mars retrograde has had some time to officially be in effect.  Mars may not go retrograde as often as Mercury, but its effects can be just as powerful!  In fact, some may say even MORE powerful.

          Mars represents the cosmic path of ACTION and chasing after it and getting it done.  (Whatever it is.)  Mars seeks the most direct and effective route to achieving what one desires.  But when Mars is in retrograde, the correct path of action is not so easily discernable, and there may be dangers along the way.  (Not the least of which is losing your cool and throwing a tantrum or rushing ahead carelessly or sloppily.) 

          Mars retrograde tends to increase the SHADOW side of Mars.  Which means we might find ourselves more easily becoming impatient, angry, tempermental, aggressive or even demanding.  (Think inner child—or inner brat, depending on how you want to look at it.)  Or we could go the opposite way, and find ourselves stalking off and passive-aggressively sulking in the corner. 

Somewhere between these two extremes, there is a healthy balance point that allows the feelings to come up and be released without laying total waste to your relationships, reputation and life.

 WHAT TO EXPECT (during Mars retrograde)

 -Lowered vitality or energy, possibly increased sluggishness

 -Lack of motivation or steam--except when it comes to things that REALLY bring you pleasure (smile)

 -Stuff just takes LONGER to get done

 -Increased detours, delays, obstacles, construction & re-construction

 -Buried anger & tempers suddenly erupting unexpectedly

 -Increased sense of dissatisfaction, frustration or restlessness—feeling that something just MUST be done to make improvement, but not knowing what that is

 -Not everyone will be on board with “your” agenda (unless it is an agenda that is really more about our, we or us)

 -Temper tantrums and outbursts backfire during this time—and the one who is the aggressor or overly pushy usually LOSES during Mars retrograde

       The people who have the most frustrations during Mars retrograde are usually the Type A “real go-getters”.  You know, the ones who just love and love to “get things done” and keep the momentum rolling along, moving from one new thing to the next.  Wait a moment.  Did I just basically describe our entire modern society?  You bet I did!  Thank Goddess for Mars (and Mercury) retrogrades, as they remind us to slow down and smell the roses every so often.

        This period of Mars retrograde is NOT so good for charging ahead excitedly into new projects or completely new experiences, as Mars is the planet of physical energy, and energy, motivation and vitality will most likely be lower than normal during this time.  This doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything at all for the next 9 weeks or so.  It simply means that it would be best to PRIORITIZE right now and whenever possible, stick to those projects and plans that were set into motion before June 26th.  (Or at the very least, those projects & plans that you were already thinking about doing before that date.)

         Still, if you could lay low for a while, and cut yourself plenty of slack, that would be best.  Overall, now is not a time for pushing yourself too hard or trying to “make” things happen.  Instead, it is a time for leaning in closer to your soul and resting in your higher self for a little while.  As I said before, it is a great time for getting your Zen on. (smile)

         There is so much more I could say on this subject, and probably a whole lot more that would be of good use to you.  However, since I am about ready to start my Mars retrograde get replenished-staycation, I have to end this here for now.  But if you do want to know more about how you can best navigate this transit, let me refer you to the article on my website about Mars retrograde.  It’s been a couple of years since I’ve updated this particular article, but the guidance still stands as good.
