1-6 is what influence Mars retrograde is bringing in for you.

1 ~ Pachamama

Pachamama represents the unconditional love that the Earth has for all children, including stones, the plants, the animal, and humans. She is the Goddess of Earth, also known as Gaia, who pervades all creation in our planet. Thanks to Pachamama, our timeless soul can experience life in a biological body. The joy and pain we taste during our brief time on Earth are invitations to discover the boundless love of Pachamama.

You are a child of Earth. Now is the time to eat right, love right, and be joyous, regardless of the circumstances you may find yourself in. Be grateful for your life, your body, and all the nourishes you. Pachamama invites you to relish each breath, embrace your joy and your pain equally, and discover love through both. Let Pachamama know good much you appreciate all her blessings with an act of service such as planting a tree, helping save endangered species, or protecting the ocean.

2 ~ Upper World

Angles, divine helpers, Ancient ones, and all varieties of luminous being populate the upper world. It’s the place where you go to retrieve your destiny, and find out who you will become, discover your great potentials, and undreamt of possibilities. It’s also the place where the spirits of the dead arrive when they complete their journey to the light.

The upper world is calling you to step into your fully realized self. Clear distractions so that you can move into a higher destiny. Do not fall to the temptation to craft an slightly more improved version of yourself. What you perceive as a problem or an obstacle is in fact the irritation you need to take the great leap. Remember your can not cross the Grand Canyon in two small jumps.

3 ~ The Crow

Crow is the keeper of universal law, the law of truth. Crow teaches us to walk our talk, to find congruence between who we say we are and who we really know ourselves to be. This winged one insists that we speak truth, that we create truth instead of searching for it, and that we find truth in every situation that we find ourselves in.

When you speak the truth and practice the truth, eventually, everything you say becomes true. Your power to co-create with the truth is universal law. Correct what is untrue in your life without judgement. Let the truth set you free.

4 ~ The Ghost Dance

The Ghost Dance of the American Plains Indians united the spirits of the living with those of the ancestors to bring peace to the world. When the ancestors are honored, they bring harmony to us. When we hold them responsible for all that is wrong with us today, they haunt us. Honor the spirits of the ancestors and receive the lessons and gifts. That includes honoring your own past lives.

The ancestors have a message of healing and a powerful medicine to offer you. Create a sacred moment at your altar, light a candle to them, and let their wisdom infuse you. At this stage in your life, you are done repeating their tragic stories. Step into the abundance that is offered to you, receive the gifts of those that have come before you, and write a new story for your life.

5 ~ Wild Woman

When the Wild Woman dances into your reading, she reminds of you of the essence of authenticity and freedom. Divested of all social constraints and cultural conformity, the Wild Woman holds up a mirror to your essential self- the true essence of who you are and who you’re meant to become. She is a reminder of the bright light within each of us that’s gets dimmed by the restriction imposed upon us by the expectations of society. She reminds us that in order to be Full present in life, we must uncover that light and let it shine brightly, regardless of the perceived consequence.

You’re being invited to shine brightly and to know that your true self is being called out to engage the world. This is a symbol that your long-held dream is beginning to take root and wants to be expressed. Your authentic self doesn’t fit in a box; it needs the freedom to shine. It’s time to have courage and step into the light. The Wild Woman says: “Shine brightly, dance with abandon, be yourself, and let the Great Spirit decide what happens.” You’ll be happy you did.

6 ~ The Circle -Reversed

Unification, interconnectedness, and a sense of continuum is what this card implies. The Circle reminds us that we are all One— dancers in a unified continuous inclusive circle. This card reminds us of the cycles of life and the evolving self, ever changing, and always connected: human, Spirit, Nature, the cosmos, all intrinsically connected.

When the circle comes as your medicine, you’re meant to come to an understanding of the importance of decay and letting go, the importance of dying to an old form and being reborn anew. If you are faced with the challenge of loss or disappointment, remember this: in the Circle of Life, nothing is ever wasted. Love will seek itself again, prosperity will come from a new idea or opportunity, and Spirit always waits for you to find your place in the dance again.

7-11 is what is being activated for you during Mars retrograde .

7 ~ Gaia ~ Nurturing ~

Receiving can be a sacred act when your intention is to honor Spirit. It is as holy as giving when performed with a humble and open heart. This is even truer when receiving much needed nurturing, so let others give to you. It may be a stretch to do so at times because of childhood conditioning, but that habit can be overcome. Your wounds can be healed. One way to achieve this is to nurture yourself, and allow others to nurture you. Consider the actions that you take that are self-nurturing. What really comes to mind when you think about doing beneficial things for yourself? Set aside your ritualized habits and beliefs that restrict the pure act of allowing your body, heart, and soul to be nurtured. Lie on the Earth and ask Gaia to rock you in her bosom as you breathe with her and relax into her living care.

8 ~ Clouds ~ Shapeshifting ~

In both subtle and more dramatic ways, you can shapeshift by your choice of clothing, hairstyle, adornments, and even mannerisms (such as facial expression, gestures, and the way you walk). By adjusting these along with your internal attitude, you can actually display different personas. When you experiment with these variations of self-expression that are not how you ordinarily present yourself, others will react to you, depending on the degree in which your persona contrasts with the one they are most familiar with. Be like the clouds as you try out different forms, stretching your limits at times, willing to move and adjust as necessary. Lift your head up, square your shoulders, and stand tall such that your head and heart open to the world, and note how this feels. You may feel vulnerable at first, but stay with it. Then let your shoulders fall forward slightly, pull your chest inward an inch or two, and let your head drop a little; observe how this feels. Experiment with contracting your aura (your energy field), then expand it as far as you comfortably can. By this kind of shapeshifting you can consciously choose your expression into the world. Just remember who you are at the core.

9 ~ Wolf ~Instincts~

You have lost touch with your instinctual sensitivities. It is the result of cultural and/or religious proscriptions dictating that anything wild and instinctual is threatening and, therefore, has to e controlled or eliminated. Now is the time to overcome this limited mindset and tune in to the instinctual cues. Let the Spririt of Wolf be your teacher, and call upon this benevolent being for help identifying what those specific cues are saying.

Shed some of your inhibitions with the only guideline being to “do no harm”. Experiment by getting out of the straightjacket of familiar societal norms and listening to those sensations in your gut that are trying to give you a message. It may be a warning or an urging to take action of some sort. Take some deep breaths, and simply notice what your bodily sensations are telling you. Your mind will be the receiver of that information, and your body and mind can learn to work more closely with each other once again.

10 ~ New Moon ~ Promise ~

This is the time to launch a project, a new relationship, or renew something that has been put aside for a later date. With your intention and willingness to allow a full cycle to complete itself, that which you desire will manifest. The seed of that idea is ready to emerge from the darkness of your subconscious into your full awareness. The next step is to put into action what is required to fully realize this idea.

A promise has two meanings; it can be commitment and guarantee to yourself (or someone else) that a particular thing will happen. When your will is aligned with the will of Spirit and your intention is focused upon what you wish to have happen, there will be fulfillment, and the promise is kept.

11 ~ Childhood ~ Innocence ~

Innocence is not simply the lack of guilt or shame but a quality in itself, one that you naturally possess when you come into this existence. There are challenges that you have faced throughout life that have further shaped your personality and character. You have also likely encountered moments following a disappointment or loss when you turned sour or cynical, and no doubt have had times when layers of anger or fear blocked the flow of your vitality, your life force. Yet in spite of all this, there is a core of innocence that you can reawaken by releasing any shame that has covered over the truth of who you are. Take any opportunity to heal this shame and let it go so you can revisit that star of purity. Doing so helps you see every moment with fresh eyes and removes the filters that inhibit your light and live from coming forth. You truly are a child of Great Spirit, so allow yourself to be that.

12-15 is a prominent energy coming through for you during Mars retrograde.

12 ~ Spark -Reversed

“You are a clear channel for Divine Creativity.”

Sometimes your fire gets doused by others who don’t want you to be all that you can be. In that case, you need to move away from the “water” lest things get too damp.

The Spark in reverse position may also indicate that you’re allowing yourself to be so consumed by a thought, feeling, or situation that you’re in danger of becoming completely burned-out. Compulsion and impulsiveness must be tempered now. Rest by a warm fire. Let things die down a bit. Then you’ll see if the true Spark will still be there. If not, you can always light a fire at another time.

13 ~ Listening

“An open heart will hear the message.”

When this card appears, you’re being reminded that there is a time to speak and a time to be silent. Now is an occasion for listening. Pay attention not only to what is being spoken, but also to what is not being said at the moment, for the deeper message is not always obvious. Listen with your heart, not just your ears, and you’ll find clarity. Receiving the Listening card is a fortunate sign and ensures a greater understanding of your circumstances.

14 ~ Moonlight – Reversed

“Your intuition allows you to see beyond the mundane, logical, and analytical. Follow it.”

Too much analyzing is getting you no where. Stop overthinking things. You may be exhausted from second-guessing yourself all the time and losing your footing.

Are you insecure about your ability to make good choices? Step back and regroup, and enter into a more trusting relationship with the flow of life. Don’t become overly concerned about perceived mistakes. How will you learn to dance if you don’t occasionally misstep? On the moonlit pathways, you can discover love and truth and wondrous things. There is nothing to fear but fear itself. Go play, have fun, stay open, and trust.

15 ~ Education -Reversed

“Life is filled with lessons. Be teachable.”

Stubbornness, and the desire to know it all and be right no matter what, will not get you what you want. Or could it be that you’re afraid to be seen as someone who knows less than you’re suppose to? Could you be flying through life by the seat of your pants, hoping no one will notice you’re skimming the surface of things?

Life is filled with lessons— some bitter, some sweet. A strident lust for certainty will never bring you the wisdom you seek. Pretending to know more than you do won’t make you wise. Be assured that not knowing is a magical place to be. All manner of mysteries are revealed. Be open. It’s okay not to know.
