Mars retrograde 2022 summary
Be prepared to use Your “fiery” tongue when needed and “cut it off” when You assess the situation as not ripe for intense expression.
Our words will hurt and sting, make sure You are using them to fight for something worth fighting for. Not just only Your own blind ambition and selfish desires.
Putting in Your own personal efforts, taking action, and being the initiator are going to be keys for any Mars retrograde. And this one is no different!
