Here we are at the start of November, edging towards the end of this most intense and uncertain year.

I want to talk to you about how you can make the most of these final weeks in a way that is meaningful and powerful to 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 on a high professionally, personally, and spiritually.

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

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

As such, Mars retrograde has likely had us internalizing a lot of our anger, passion, motivation, and drive. We have been feeling that Mars energy on a deeper level in a largely unconscious way. We may not have been truly aware of the messages it had for us during this time.

But as Mars moves direct once again on November 13, the energy shifts and we are going to feel it in powerful ways!

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

It’s been a long and uncertain year, filled with change, chaos, and confusion. Many of us may have felt held back for months, unable to move forward and make progress.

That will finally come to an end this month and the planetary energy will give us all the support and drive 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 once 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 out of all this powerful and inspiring energy, is to think about how you can make the absolute most out 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 Mars direct movement is going to help you accelerate your efforts.

If you have been lacking in inspiration or direction, now will be the perfect time to ignite your passion for your work and power through with your ideas to the finish line.

Please remember that Mars in retrograde has had its own lessons for us, and we must learn from them too if we are to make the most of Mars going direct once again.

Think about the life you desire and whether or not you have been taking positive actions towards that life. Think about how much you have been in charge of your actions and behaviors, and whether or not you are pleased with the consequences of your actions.

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

Journaling Prompts

Consider the following journaling prompts so that you can brainstorm and get really clear on 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 that you can clarify how you plan to spend the next two months before the end of the year.

Questions to ask yourself:

  • What manageable, believable and actionable goals can I meet before the end of this year?
  • What projects can I actually finish by the end of 2020?
  • What helps me to feel focused and disciplined?
  • In what ways can I support myself to finish my tasks and meet my goals?
  • How can I create a passionate, and healthy environment so that I can thrive as the best version of myself?
  • In what small and manageable ways can I change my routine to match this version of me?
  • What changes can I make that will 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 complete, and then act upon that passion and inspiration.

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