The week ahead is distinguished by the station of Mars. While this happens far less frequently than the annoying Mercury retrograde, a Mars retrograde still leaves a considerable imprint even if it happens once every two years.
Because of the rebellious nature symbolized by Uranus and the often aggressive and even violent nature of Mars we might see a significant event arise out of that influence. This could be a triggering point for any sort of conflict that appears to be ready to pop. Underlying tensions or misunderstood intentions can be misread and “boom,” an event occurs. A full Moon occurs just two days after this alignment and can further inflame bubbling tensions.
Here is what your sign can expect this week, during this incredible time of cosmic events:
