In an era where everyone seems to be arguing with everyone else about everything on the internet, it behooves us to pay special attention to where Mars is at any given time. Mars has now entered Libra and will be there until October 31st. Have some of you worried, because this is an allegedly debilitated placement for the God of War.
Overall though, most of the Mars activity in the upcoming month and a half is going to be fairly constructive. Just imagine that: Getting some actual use out of your drive and aggression for once!
I’ve listed the exact date for each major Mars event below. Keep in mind that each aspect isn’t just effective on that specific date, but for a good five or six days 4 or afterward. That is, except for the quincunx. Don’t worry: we’ll get to the quincunx…
(No matter what transits are happening, how they play out in your life depends on your individual birth chart. Write me with your date, time, and place of birth — and I’ll send you a copy and a free sneak preview!)
Mars trine Saturn
Excellent energy for getting things done in a lasting and efficient manner. In a world where everyone is swinging an ax, it pays to know how to use a scalpel.
Mars quincunx Uranus
Okay, if you know me, you know I’m suspicious of the quincunx. It’s considered a “minor” aspect, but every once in a while it can leap out at you from nowhere, unexpectedly. Imagine going to a kid’s birthday party expecting to be bored but you end up being chased out by a bear. Yeah, that’s Mars quincunx Uranus. Give it a three-day range of potential aggressive weirdness.
Sun conjunct Mars
Good energy. Start exercising! Get out and do things! Watch your road rage!
Mercury conjunct Mars
…and while you’re at it, careful you don’t run your mouth to the wrong person in the wrong way for the wrong reason.
Mars quincunx Neptune
Kind of like Mars quincunx Uranus above, except instead of being suddenly attacked by a bear, someone laced the ice cream with LSD and you spend half the day explaining to a six-year-old that no, your face is NOT melting, and all things are one.
Mars trine Jupiter
Excellent energy, but make sure it is wisely directed. A good time to stand up for your principles.
Mars square Pluto
Okay, it’s not all sunshine for this Mars trip through Libra. This aspect could make for explosive tempers. Try to find a constructive way to vent your anger — or at least scream into your pillow instead of someone’s face. Yeah, I know… you think they deserve it. Maybe they do, even. Cut it out anyway.
Mars enters Scorpio
Just in time for Halloween, hooray!
