Forward, march!

Mars turns direct today, after a long, slow, backwards tango through Taurus that began on October 1. Finally, the long, frustrating planetary impasse is about to loosen up. But don’t expect the kind of explosive release of energy that you might get from, say, cracking open a bottle of champagne; Mars is, after all, still in lanquid Taurus. Rather, picture yourself slowly getting up on all fours like a cat after a long nap, stretching extravagently, then sitting there for awhile, blinking.
