This will be frustrating; you feel like every time you get a leg up you find another place of stagnancy where you’re unable to excel or perform to the level you expect yourself to in your work environment.

This is not the best time to be working on group projects, or at least that's what astrology says, as it is likely that all the work will end up falling on one person. This is also a horrible time to delay or procrastinate on any projects.

But let's not be fatalistic zodiac signs, when it comes to Mars retrograde this year.

You can try to prepare by becoming as organized as you possibly can manage, scheduling your days, and sticking to a timely routine.

Try not to project too much at work. Focus on things as they come up and as you experience them.

You all have a common goal in mind, work together to resolve them and see how you can support each other instead of how you should work against each other.

Don’t get so overwhelmed in your eagerness to push through and anxieties that arise during this retrograde that you end up taking out your heightened frustrations on a co-worker.

You’re a team. Try to lift each other up and grow instead of putting each other down.
