Mars in retrograde is never easy, but it may be a little harder on you because it begins its two-month retrograde in your privacy sector on Wednesday. This could lead to inner conflict and the need for privacy and keeping secrets to yourself. This is not the time to start any fights, as karma will not be kind.
Your ability to express yourself also hits a snag when the sun opposes Neptune on Friday, and you become so lost in your daydreams that you forget to actually do something. Be gentle with yourself and try to get at least one thing done.
A silver lining comes in the form of Jupiter moving direct on Saturday. Jupiter is currently in your philosophy sector. When it’s moving forward, you can expect some good luck in travel plans and education. You deserve a vacation, even if it’s just reading a good book!
