Their results gets further intensified as they get closer to earth.

Mars entered into a retrograde motion on April 17, 2016 in the sign of Scorpio. Mars retrogrades once every two years for a period of 75 days approximately. This is the phase of our life which asks us to check on our utterances, responses to situations and behavioral instincts. That’s because Mars is an angry, aggressive and a hot planet that makes people go aggressive, react overtly, take wrong impulsive decisions in haste. Further around 30th May, 2016, Mars gets closest to earth and can even be seen with naked eyes. Mars closeness to earth means that its energy and influences will be greater than ever.
