Two news pieces came through after I’d written my Mars Retrograde 2020 forecast that are relevant to this passage.
The Atlantic published an article at the Pisces Full Moon; The Atlantic reported Donald Trump had said “Americans Who Died in War Are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’” The president has repeatedly disparaged the intelligence of service members, and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades, multiple sources tell The Atlantic.
As I wrote previously, Mars Retrograde challenges Trump due to his Rising Mars; often he burns off those low energy periods once direct. Since Mars is Retrograde through the US election season, this latest controversy will most likely be one of many situations that undermine his appeal. Whether that affects his run remains to be seen. I will write more about the election in the next month.
Just a few hours before The Atlantic article, Dwayne Johnson The Rock posted on his Instagram. He and his family are recovering from a heavy bout of COVID-19. The Rock is an ideal of Mars energy, so for him to advocate mask protocol might carry weight for some men who’ve not wanted to be labeled “sissies”.
More Mars Retrograde examples are sure to come!
