On March 1st, Mars, the energizer bunny will go retrograde in Libra until May 19th. During this cycle the energy level will change. You may experience frustration in areas of your life pertaining to whichever house Mars is retrograde. For example, if Mars is traveling through your 6th house there may be frustration pertaining to your work environment, or someone you work with.
When Mars is retrograde it can be disruptive to your routine and habits. Sudden reversals of interest, passion, drive and ambition are likely to occur during this retrograde cycle. This cycle also brings issues to the surface which one has either forgotten or deliberately repressed because of their disruptive qualities.
On a physical level (after all Mars is all about the physical energy) you may find yourself wanting to do 5 minutes less on the treadmill, a few less reps on the weight machines or a few less laps in the pool.
You may even hit the snooze button an extra time or two. I guess you are sensing by now, that this is a cycle that requires a conservation of energy. Less is more and better. Remember the story about the tortoise and the hare. Patience will be a true virtue for you. This will be easier for some than for others. Those born with their sun, moon or ascendant in Libra will be especially affected by this retrograde cycle.
This would be a good time to practice yoga, tae chi, or some of the other more methodical slower moving arts.
