Mars & The Threshold

By Agent 108 Adam Sommer

“In the universe, there are things that are known, and things that are unknown, and in between them, there are doors.”

 William Blake

We are approaching a threshold. Collectively speaking, it’s apparent, but personally, it may not be so clear.  From my perspective–and seemingly Mr. Blake’s–we are about to encounter some “doors.”  Seen through the panther eyes of Mars, he is ready.  It’s the same eyes the Knights of the Round had when setting off for the Grail: All of them chose to enter the forest where it was darkest to them! We are confronted with a similar situation at the moment and it all relates to Mars.

Here are the facts:

  • Mars is about to enter his sign of exaltation (Capricorn; March 17th)

  • Around the same time, he will go out of bounds (OOB) until early April (The Lawless Unknown)

  • On April Fools Day/Easter he will visit Saturn

  • On April 26th he will palaver with Pluto

  • And most importantly, from a cyclical perspective with an emphasis on the Hero’s Journey, Mars will square the Sun the day after the Equinox.  This is the Threshold! Our first step into that dark “forest” in search for our “Grail.”

Ever since late July, when his cycle began with him forging intentions on the other side of the Sun in Leo, we have been preparing for this moment.  The feeling: We are ready!  If the stack of reasons why Mars is so vital to listen to currently isn’t enough, what will it take to grab your attention? An accident? A fight? A diagnosis? What would it be? Because if we aren’t paying heed, something will force the lesson upon us. Never the best option.  Instead, we prepare, we train, and we take that courageous step into the unknown.  This is the high road.  The one riddled with unexpected encounters, magical meetings with wise beings, little battles and little deaths along the way, leading us all to the great confrontation with Self which is promised to arrive sometime post Summer Solstice, in the loop of Mars’ retrograde.

My point in sharing this information is not to scare you, but to blow into the spark of your own knowing deep in your gut.  Something in your life needs to change and the only way that is going to happen is if you pick up your bow, sling your quiver across your shoulders, and enter the darkness of the forest.  It takes great courage to face what we fear.  Sometimes we don’t even know what it is we fear, that is until it greets us unexpectedly.  Best to be proactive with such work.  Find inspiration wherever you can find it.  Acts of bravery and courage.  Stories of true transformation.  Impossible feats of human potential.  All wise places to search for guidance.

There is a battle coming….and it’s not between us and them or he and she, it’s cloaked within our own unique madness.  Something needs to be conquered, once and for ALL.  Find Capricorn in your chart.  This is where it will take place.  If you have trouble understanding the nature of this threshold experience, this battlefield you are about to step into, I’m here for you.  Don’t be shy to reach out and go on the Mars Journey with me.

Remember: Fear is the cheapest room in the house.  I believe Hafiz said that.

Long days and pleasant nights my friends,
