Mars Goes Direct Bringing Fresh Energy to Get Things Done

Here we are at the beginning of November, entering the end of this most intense and uncertain year.

I want to talk to you about how you can make the most of these last few weeks in a way that is meaningful and powerful for you.

The planet Mars goes direct on November 13, 2020, which is great news because of the kind of energy and inspiration we all need to end the year professionally, personally and spiritually.

Mars is the planet of action, motivation, physical energy, drive and passion. He is also the God of War and therefore, symbolic of aggression and anger and strong and powerful energy that needs to be directed in a positive way.

Since September 9, we have been dealing with Mars retrograde. Mars goes into retrograde roughly every two years, so when it happens we are sure to feel its effects.
When a planet is retrograde, it makes us feel the energy associated with that planet more.

As such, Mars retrograde probably had us internalize much of our anger, passion, motivation and drive. We have been feeling the energy of Mars on a deeper level in a most unconscious way. It may be that we were not really aware of the messages she had for us during this time.

But as Mars moves direct again on November 13th, the energy changes and we will feel it in powerful ways!

This can happen in the form of revelations and insights, anything related to taking action, feeling motivated and disciplined, and walking the talk.

It was a long and uncertain year, full of change, chaos, and confusion. Many of us may have felt held back for months, unable to move forward and make progress.

This will finally end this month and the planetary energy will give us all the support and impetus to take action and move forward.

This is particularly powerful coming just two days after the magical date of 11/11 and its energy of acceleration and manifestation.

You can look forward to feeling passionate and ready to take on new experiences again. Things that may have felt slow, stuck or stagnant will free up and gather new momentum.

How Can You Activate and Use this New “Mars Direct” Energy?

The best way to make the most of all this powerful and inspiring energy, is to think about how you can make the most of the remaining weeks of the year.

If you have been working on a project of any kind and have struggled to move it forward, this direct movement of Mars will help speed up your efforts.

If you’ve been lacking inspiration or direction, now would be the perfect time to capture your passion for your work and your power through your ideas to the finish line.

Please remember that Mars retrograde had its own lessons for us, and we must learn from them as well if we want to make the most of Mars going direct again.

Think about the life you want and whether or not you would take positive actions towards that life. Think about how much you have been in charge of your actions and behavior, and whether or not you are happy with the consequences of your actions.

Reflecting on this before Mars goes direct will help you better interpret and translate the incoming positive energy in meaningful ways.

Journal prompts

Consider the following journaling prompts so you can brainstorm and get really clear about what you plan to do between now and the end of 2020 with all this motivational energy.

Then get yourself a notebook and pen and journal around these questions so you can clarify how you plan to spend the next two months before the end of the year.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What manageable, credible and actionable goals can I achieve before the end of this year?
  • What projects can I actually complete by the end of 2020?
  • What helps me feel focused and disciplined?
  • In what ways can I support myself to complete my tasks and reach my goals?
  • How can I create a passionate, healthy environment so I can flourish as the best version of myself?
  • In what small, manageable ways can I change my routine to match this version of me?
  • What changes can I make that support my vision?

Be realistic, don’t bite off more than you can chew, but instead put a laser-like focus on the things you know you can accomplish, and then act on that passion and inspiration.

Good luck and make the most of Mars going direct this November 13th! You got it.
