Once every two years and two months, it retrogrades and, although the retrograde motion itself lasts only 60-80 days, the entire retrogradation cycle leads to an unusually prolonged stay of Mars in a zodiac sign.
This year, Mars is retrograde in Aries, a sign where it will stay for a bit over six months, between June 28th of 2020 and January 6th of 2021.
