The Cosmic Warrior enters the sign of the twins on the last day of March this year, beginning a six-week stay that will have us expressing and asserting ourselves verbally. Words can get hot with Mars in Gemini, and there can be a tendency to speak before thinking – especially if we believe we have really good point. With the lineup of planets in Capricorn and Aries over this period of time, it might seem that Mars is going to miss the action, but in fact he’s going to be quite busy. In April, Ceres, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn all station to retrograde, and Mars will be aspecting them all.
Mars likes to lead the way – he rules the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, after all. And after a very busy time in his home sign that included a dynamic meeting with Uranus at 29 degrees, he strides into Taurus on 14 February 2019. Mars in Taurus is sensual, practical, and persistent – sometimes persistent to the point of stubbornness. He gets us to focus on the material world, and can encourage us to be too rapacious in our enjoyment of it – he’s no environmentalist.
As the ancient god of agriculture, Saturn symbolises the harvest. The essence of Saturn is reflected in the concept that effort equals reward; that you reap what you sow. This creates an often overlooked yet empowering side to Saturn. You get to choose what you do, how you do it and to what standard.
Your choices ultimately create your future as they become the foundation upon which you build your life. In this way Saturn shows how your choices, like the things you take responsibility for, can pave the way for success.
As the New Year begins, Mars strides into his home sign of Aries, adding fuel to the fires that will be burning through the beginning of 2019. Mars often acts as a trigger for other aspects in the sky, and especially so when he’s acting freely in the sign of the ram. This year, there’s a lot of celestial activity for the Cosmic Warrior to ignite
After seven months in airy Aquarius, Mars dives into the Piscean waters on 15 November. He swims towards the end of the zodiac as we wade towards the end of the year.
A dual sign that encompasses both yin and yang, Pisces often signals extremes. Known for its spiritual side, Pisces can also be excessively materialistic. Recognized as sensitive and compassionate, Pisces can also be ruthless and uncompromising.
Mars stations to retrograde on June 26/27, at 9 degrees of Aquarius, and will continue to go backward in the sky until August 27th, when he reaches 28 degrees of Capricorn. Right around the stations (turning points), we’re likely to see a spike in anger, assertiveness, and aggression.That’s generally true of Mars’ stations, but it’s especially likely on his retrograde station in June, as the Sun is opposite Saturn at the same time. Frustration could build as Mars is limited in his movement – the urge to go forward intensifies but is hampered. If there’s any question that a few folks will blow their fuses at the end of June, consider that Mars stations just a degree away from the asteroid Pandora, and thinking isn’t the only thing likely to be out of the box.
