Mars will be going retrograde in motion while transiting Scorpio (Vrischik Rasi) from 17 April at 17:42 IST, according to K.P Ayanamsa.
It is already in stationary mode and its movement is almost negligible.
Mars enters back into Libra (Thula Rasi) on 13 June 2016, 13:53 IST.
Transit of Mars in a sign indicates how people respond when they are angry and how they react to the anger in others.
It is already in conjunction with Saturn in scorpio since 20 February 2016 and has been moving slowly to enter into stationary mode before going into retrograde direction.
Mars would be going direct in Libra on 30 June 2016 from 05:04 IST and re-enter Scorpio on 11 July 2016 at 23:30 IST.
Present transit of Mars in Scorpio indicates that anger will not be suppressed and it will burst out even at the smallest chance.
Mars in Scorpio will make people express their anger violently, without fearing social norms or law.
This anger will be seen more in sports persons, military and police, who do not like the functioning of administrations.
Adding fuel to fire will be Saturn, which is also in retrograde motion in same sign Scorpio.
Mars and Saturn are two very strong planets but they are poles-apart in their effects. When they get together, history is created or rewritten.
To make things worse, both are in retrograde motion during same time and there is not positive Jupiter’s aspect on them to control their effects.
Even Venus will be combust during the month of May 2016, along with Mercury retrograde between 28 April – 22 May 2016 and combust between 01-17 May 2016.
That makes 4 major planets retrograde (apart from natural retro planets Rahu, Ketu) until 9 May 2016, Venus combust, Sun and Moon trapped in effects of Mars and others.
This will make us devoid of guidance and positivity.
History of Saturn – Mars conjunction in Scorpio
Last time such a strong & life changing conjunction took place was 32 years back in 1984, when it almost shook the world with events like IRA Bombings and famine in Ethiopia.
The world’s worst Industrial Accident happened in Union Carbide Gas plant in Bhopal, India.
That year also marked the assassination of India’s Prime Minister Mrs. India Gandhi, which lead to anti-sikh riots and migration of sikhs to other countries.
The conjunction also led to key political events like USA president Ronald Reagan coming to power again leading to an end to Cold War era and the launch of Apple Macintosh by Steve Jobs in 1984.
However, most important were assassination of Indira Gandhi, followed by political asylum of sikhs to Europe and North America.
The upcoming combination could be more aggressive than the one of 1984 since Mars, the more aggressive planet out of the two is stronger this time around.
The 7 months long conjunction of Mars and Saturn will be delivering extreme results to people born in 12 different Ascendants and Moon Signs.
