You place mars on the same natal degree on Oct 21 2012, and then you compare it to progressions and the natal chart to see the possible effects. We do it as “One Big Question” report with extensive interpretation. Mars Return is overall a positive reinvigorating influence, but it can indicate also the potential for accidents and mishaps.
With this person, Mars Return happens in the 5th house, a very good placement if she is attempting a pregnancy.
According to John Townley, “The individual often finds (the Mars Return) this a time of new projects and commitments, often accompanied by higher pay status and the increased responsibility and time/expenditure that such change of status often requires. Naturally, it is a good time to start a new job or project and, conversely, new jobs and projects just seem to turn up at this time.” I personally relate this to the fact that the energy level is higher and this energy or charisma is attractive to others— you project yourself with greater confidence, your aura is stronger and there is a radiance that is attractive to others. This explains why it is easier to get a job during the Mars Return.
Healthwise, recuperative abilities are enhanced at this time as well.
Energizing sums it up. But in this chart with square to Mercury, it can energize also an existing conflict to blow up. Watch your language okay. :0
ps This is not a Mars Return chart, just her natal chart where mars will come soon to its original place in about a week from now.
I was looking on the web to find how to calculate Mars Return. But are unable to find it. Astro.com doesn’t have it. How do you figure it out?
