So very spot on! This part especially resonates with discussions I’ve been having with clients, David, friends and relatives:
“One main question during the Mars retrograde since mid-April until now has been this:
• Just what have we been giving our energy and thus our power to, and are we still thinking that’s a good idea?
• And is it a worthwhile investment of our greatest resource — our very life-force — or might that attention, energy, and life-force be better focused to something more truly worthwhile?”
Thank you, Jamie. I was just thinking this is so prevalent for so many people that I really ought to post on it … and there yours was. 🙂

Mars, the planet and archetypal energy of raw life-force, brash Yang, passion, and momentum stationed direct after its retrograde vision-quest cave-time that started in mid-April.
In mythology, the only time Mars did cave time was when he was with his lover, Venus… the only one who could influence Mars to channel all of that life-force and passion in more constructive, creative, and wise ways.
Otherwise, much to the constant chagrin of his fellow gods,Mars was out stirring up trouble, knockin’ heads, and generally bustin’ shit up, and thinking about it later, if at all.
What’s interesting is that — whether they ‘believe in astrology’ or not —a lot of people have been reporting the withdrawn energy, feeling the need for more rest or a more gentle pace (like it or not)…
