Mars Rx today (June 26th 5:04 PM EDT) at 9 deg Aquarius. This retrograde will cover 9 deg Aquarius to 28 deg Capricorn.
Here's an excerpt from an earlier post:
"Mars Rx in Aquarius intensifies specific actions so the move towards independence can happen (sometimes it takes extra effort to break away from the past). Or, Mars Rx can delay actions/progress if the impulse is poorly timed. Delays or intensification will depend on how Mars aspects your chart. Mars Rx means progress is put on hold, either way. You have to wait or redo. Progress happens when Mars stations direct.
In general, Mars in Aquarius is tense, rebellious and stubborn (Aquarius is a Fixed sign). Compromise is non-existent - it must happen, and it must happen your way or their way, no matter what. Great for innovation and (barring the Mars/Uranus square) liberation that requires patience.
Yes, Aquarius can be patient (or fixated) if there's a goal. Mars in Aquarius (especially Mars Rx) suggests breaking free of all limits no matter how long it takes and no matter what's at stake. Impulse with staying power, or fanaticism. While Aquarius is known to be a logical sign, when it gets riled up logic flies out the window. For example, if a limit is encountered, Mars in Aquarius will push and keep pushing, just because someone says "No."
Mars Rx will briefly reenter Capricorn, which suggests revisiting rules/traditions/structures to remind yourself what the previous focus was. This can help you regroup (especially helpful if you've lost track of a goal) and it's interesting that Mars direct occurs in this sign- you have to return to old rules/traditions so you can move on from them. 29 to 28 degrees of the Cardinal signs will feel this part of the retrograde."
Mars rules sex, actions, anger, violence and impulse. When it is Rx, these issues will slow down and/or heat up. Either way, you can't force forward movement,so you might as well work with the current state of things. This transit is favourable for attending to past or current issues that you've been putting off.
If Mars in Aquarius wants to break free and be independent, Mars Rx in Aquarius has to reconsider or refocus the struggle. During this Rx, consider what you're trying to liberate yourself from or where you're attempting to declare your independence. And know that eventually Mars will station direct (August 27th).
