Mars Retrograde in Capricorn

Kelli Fox

Mars continues its retrograde into Capricorn: August 12 – 27

Hindered Success

During this time our need to succeed will be hindered. We’ve got the discipline and focus but there will be obstacles and blocks to achieving our ambitions no matter how hard we work. Success is a high priority and we’re willing to do whatever it takes to get to the top. In fact, you might have a tendency to be more calculating than usual, and at worst, people could accuse you of being ruthless. Be sure to consider other people’s feelings in your quest for success, otherwise you could find yourself “lonely at the top.”

Too Cautious

During this transit, tangible, measurable results — concrete evidence of your efforts may be difficult to achieve. You’re a paragon of pragmatism now, and aren’t likely to make a move unless you’ve thought through all the possible outcomes. You might have a tendency to being too cautious or even fearful, missing out on a golden opportunity. Trust your instincts to guide you toward cautious risks.

Limited Results

Because of your extremely high standards and lofty goals, you might feel daunted by the prospect of diving in and taking action, and may be prone to procrastination. But once you take the risk of taking that first small step forward, you’re unstoppable. Your stamina and perseverance are off the charts but with limited results. Watch out for being overly serious, and remember to take a break once in a while so you don’t burn yourself out. Take time to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
