What were you doing when Mars went direct this week?

Last Tuesday 20th May 2014, the planet Mars turned direct at 9 degrees of Libra. Did anything of particular interest, correlating with this shift, occur on that day, which any readers would like to share? If so, I’d love you to leave some feedback via a comment on this post.

I’m very interested in what correlations there are between planets turning retrograde or direct, on particular days at particular degrees of the zodiac, and corresponding inner/outer events in the lives of those of us directly ‘plugged in’ to those degrees.

Here is my feedback, which beautifully illustrates how planetary energies reflect both the positive and negative dimensions of our lives, often at the same time.

Transiting Mars turned direct – conjunct my natal second house Neptune at 9 degrees of Libra – on Tuesday 20th May. On the one hand, I encountered three inspirational women poets whilst attending a poetry reading with a fourth one. I also bought five poetry books by those three poets!

On the other hand, I came down on my return home with a sudden nasty urinary infection and spent the next day lying in bed waiting for the antibiotics to kick in.Then whilst recovering at home the day after that, I wrote two poems, the first I have written for thirty-four years…..

Observing the vividness of planetary symbolism accurately reflecting the patterns of our unfolding lives continues to be a source of enduring fascination for me. How about you?
