Mars Retrograde Dates in 2022-2023:

Mars is retrograde from October 30th, 2022, to January 12th, 2023.

  • Mars enters its retrograde zone on September 3, 2022, at 8° Gemini 08′
  • Mars turns retrograde on October 30th, 2022, at 25° Gemini 37’Rx

  • Mars leaves its retrograde zone on March 15th, 2023, at 25° Gemini 37′

Mars spent its full retrograde cycle in the sign of Gemini during this cycle.

Mars is in its post-retrograde shadow until March 15th.

The Sun opposes retrograde Mars on December 8th, 2022 (the Sun only opposes Mars while Mars is retrograde). The Moon aligns with Mars at almost the same time–it’s a powerful Full Moon as it aligns with the Sun-Mars opposition.

Mars is in its shadow period from September 3rd to October 30th, and then from January 12th to March 15th, 2023.

When Mars was in its retrograde cycle, we re-assessed our current projects, our approach to getting what we want, and our desire nature. Rather than directly assert our desires, we tended towards introspection.

With Mars now direct, we slowly but surely ease back into action, rebuilding or refueling our confidence with clearer goals.
