Deep Rumblings: Mars Retrogrades in Aquarius, 2018 Forecast May 15 to June 26

Marching Orders: Mars in Capricorn (17 March – 16 May, 2018)

Traditional astrology considers Mars to be exalted in Capricorn, where his assertiveness and aggression can be put to use for society. Mars in Capricorn can help build institutions, but he can also storm the fortresses and initiate change. This year, Mars will be quite busy in the sign of the mountain goat, meeting with Capricorn’s ruler Saturn then going on to conjoin Pluto, in addition to other aspects he’ll be making.

The Arrow Aims High: Mars in Sagittarius 26 January to 17 March 2018

Every two years, Mars, the Cosmic Warrior, spends about six weeks in the sign the archer, Sagittarius. Whether he is waging a holy war, advocating for a social or political philosophy, or fighting for a just cause, Mars gets riled up in Jupiter’s home sign. Sagittarius is a Fire sign that isn’t known for reserve and caution, and that suits Mars just fine.

Jovial Houseguest: Mars in Scorpio

Mars returns to his second home on 9 December, and finds his friend Jupiter in the house. Last time Mars was in Scorpio, in early 2016, he had the place to himself – no doubt a relief after hosting Saturn for a couple of years earlier in the decade. Mars may have limited tolerance for Jupiter’s upbeat and outgoing attitude, but in the sign of the scorpion even Jupiter is inclined to tone it down a bit and focus on serious matters.

Iron Fist Velvet Glove: Mars in Libra OCT 22 – Dec 9

The Cosmic Warrior puts on his dress uniform for six weeks, minding his manners and following protocol as he marches through Venus’ second home. Libran harmony is inimical to the more impulsive Mars, and in this sign he can have difficulty expressing himself directly. Yet with Venus in mutual reception with him for much of the time he’s in the sign of the scales (from 7 November to 1 December), it’s possible that this will be a productive time – bargaining and negotiations with a hint of force, diplomacy from a place of power… an iron fist in a velvet glove?

The Devil’s in the Details: Mars in Virgo (5 September – October, 2017)

Mars ends a bold six weeks in Leo on 5 September, taking more cautious steps as he enters Virgo. Mars likes action, while Virgo is a more considerate sign, sometimes given to vacillation and second-guessing. In the sign of the Virgin, Mars sometimes doesn’t know what to do, yet he isn’t given to sitting still, either. A good cause is just the thing to motivate him – and us – to make the most of this six week period.

Commander in Chief: Mars in Leo (20 July  – 5 September, 2017)

Hot celestial weather awaits, both north and south of the equator, for Mars’ stay in Leo. The red planet will be making hot aspects, adding fire to fire, and triggering the Great American Eclipse (as it’s been called) during his six weeks in Leo. Expect a bold entrance, as the Cosmic Warrior strides into the Sun’s home sign

Approaching Astrology in the 21st Century

Astrologers have for centuries been invoking the Hermetic maxim, “As above, so below” to explain that meaning is threaded through the entire universe, from the microscopic to the macroscopic levels. And this is the perspective that best serves modern astrology. It is not that matter creates consciousness (no one has ever explained how that could be) and it isn’t necessarily the case that mind creates matter.

Are the Home Fries Burning? Mars in Cancer 2017 June 4th – July 20th

Mars enters the sign of the crab on 4 June, 2017 and stays underwater until 20 July. In Cancer, Mars is more likely to advocate for kith and kin than for self. It is a somewhat primal and protective placement for the Cosmic Warrior, and we’re likely to see a kind of aggressive defense in many arenas, especially international politics. Expect that there will be a lot of flag waving and chest thumping, for these seven weeks.
