Mars does a U-y

At the outset I called Mars into Libra Martial Arts – check !

A few days ago, frustration due to upcoming station (energies fluctuate wildly) 
Cardinal Cross, 2 eclipses, Uranus square Pluto; whammy Saturn/Neptune transits led me to call Mars Rx in Libra
 F Words.  HA, yeah…also right.

Long ass haul for Mars in Libra has delivered competition with ourselves + others, relationships, love, money, agreements.  We smacked right into how – fairly – we balance all these parts of our lives with ourselves and others.

Deep psyche revelations were brought to the surface with Mars Rx.
As Mars gains speed and leaves Libra, we are Upward bound – goals in sight !

Libra, Capricorn, Aries, Cancer are the houses where we have been and continue to grow and Grow and GROW through facing personal challenges. 

Mars in Libra sextiles Leo and Sagittarius, creating and exploring, respectively.
 houses hold your golden opportunities if you work them.

Gemini and Aquarius have an incoming boost in brainwaves, inventive, inspirational ideas will rise with fire moving direct !


F words

giphyHas this been your experience of Mars Rx in Libra ?
Hang on…we are almost to the turnpike.

During Mars Rx in Libra interrelations are swinging wildly from soft Venus to aggressive Mars – one minute discordant – the next harmonious.

Contemplation and quarrels of fairness and frustration and finances are fair game.  

Think of Mars Rx as a cosmic do-over, make-over from the inside out.
What are your qualities worth scrapping or saving ?
1 – Receptive yin feminine
2 – Outgoing yang masculine 
Where is the harmonious balance that lives within you ?
Do you play and work well with others ? 

Who are YOU among all the OTHERS living over in Libra ?
Have you been exploring these things, like I have ?

Mars Rx drives us to discover who and what we ARE as well as how FAIRLY we deal our deck among a myriad of Libran choices.

Here comes the healing horse (Jupiter) we can’t normally see for the blindfold and crossed swords / ideas of indecision, which of course, is STILL a choice

Jupiter trine Pisces Chiron while also trine Saturn Rx in Scorpio
All emotional water houses, diving deep into the depths will do the trick here.
Have hope, be generous, keep faith, be positive – put love and care to healing emotional wounds.

What is the insight of Mars Rx ?
Thinking with the head the goddess gave you.  
Logic, fairness and reason over time.
Don’t be hasty.
The pen / tongue is mightier than the sword.
Personal record keeping – rather than keeping score.

What is the Martian hurdle we press hardest against ?
Our personal challenges as we RELATE to OTHERS.
Perseverance is called for – rather than severity and pressuring.

Quick thoughts…
When Moon enters Mercury ruled Virgo, Mars Rx (in the sign of service) is holding the door open.   Sensitivities get a zippy influx of passion, but are in compromise with higher ideals and someone else’s vision.  You may feel excluded, or misunderstood.   Compromise and balance (Venus) is not jiving with what you feel you need.

Venus is soon to enter Mercury ruled Gemini, leaving the comforts of homey Taurus for the lands of scattering and chattering air sign Gemini.  Gemini Venus is a flirty, witty and easily distracted Venus but curious, playful and lots of fun. Quiz your friends about good books, movies and newsy news and they will spill and share all the goodies with Venus in Gemini. (Good time to keep your lip zipped if you have love secrets to keep – energies are in flux ~ Venus is fresh and Mercury stationing !)

Energies surrounding stationary periods are in flux and often wildly so…
This is especially true as Mercury is unaspected at this time, or operating without a planetary station to tune in on …but… ~> Mercury IS playing wildcard in Pisces, the cosmic tuning fork ~> so anything and everything may be springing forth.
Dreams, visions, memories, favorite song you haven’t heard in forevah…!?
Who knows with Neptooney ?
Whatever they are, enjoy them… cosmic messages are on their way…

haha and the Moon is growing closer to FULL, a time of revelations ~
incoming !  You have mail !

Don’t get too excited, this Libra full moon brings ego hits / compromise from men or authority, with a possibility of great strides in love and relationships that may surprise you.

Again more opportunities arise to renovate your personal health / help you give others and improve your self-worth in the process.

Keep your mind enthusiastic, optimistic and focus on your highest philosophical (North Node in Sagittarius) visions for the greatest success.

Pluto and Venus are big players (each a focal point of their own T-squares) at the time of this full moon and that means regeneration of what you love and value.

Tuesday April 10, 11:25 am CST, USA
Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn at 9’34”
Uranus is in Aries at 5’28”

Squaring up, obstacle course.
Suit UP.  Get your game ON.
These two planets are Major Players , Movers & Shakers.
This will be a wild ride, get ready to Rock N Roll.

They are kicking around in Cardinal signs ready to rumble.
Cardinals initiate.

Uranus rules Aquarius – Yang.
Pluto rules Scorpio – Yin.

Uranus is lightning fast  in Aries.
Pluto grinds on & On & ON  in Capricorn.

Aries wants change.
Capricorn wants status quo.

Wear a smile, fake it if you have to.
Be ready for switch ups, pack your emergency chill out gear whatever that is.
Stay positive and get your mojo working.

Pluto stations direct on September 18th at  6’57” Capricorn – – so get set, get your head right for months of mega major growth.  This is a good thing !

Pluto stations Rx on Tuesday April 10 in trine to Mars Rx, in trine to Jupiter in Taurus and quintile to Saturn Rx in Libra. That’s mega steady earth, what we can touch and what we have built.

Add a Pluto sextile to Chiron and we have opportunities to expand on the ideas of others the Scorpio way (mine & ours) and others the Pisces way (ours globally and infinitely).

Friday April 13 CST, USA
Mars stations direct 10:53pm

So finally some forward progress  ( and happy Virgos lol ).  Direct motion in tandem with trines to Sun in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn is a sweet little biscuit tossed in from the cosmos to sweeten the deal.

Mars stationing direct in Mercury ruled Virgo while square to Venus in Gemini and opposite Neptune ?
You might wanna lay low until the Martian energies settle – keep the love, $ , and fantasy gab low key, make the energies work first, talk later.

aka: Engage brain before putting mouth in gear.

peace out Plutonic people~

different dimensions

I am off for a few, cleaning and clearing the energy in my home.
Then I will return to organizing this site.  Thank you for your patience.

Neptune is flowing, soon to return home to Pisces on February 3, 2012.
She will relax in home waters for 14 years until 2024/5.

Neptune is my most highly aspected planet, and I feel the need to move and grow myself.  My Mars is in Sagittarius (my 12th house sign- Pisces natural home) conjunct Vesta (hearth and home, sacred fire) I follow my intuition, it is time.

Vesta is conjunct Venus in the sky now in the sign of Pisces.  She is activating my 2nd and 8th houses.  (What is mine and what belongs to others.)  Mars is Rx in Virgo, the need to sort and purge (Mars is applying to natal Pluto ! ) financial documents (Venus rules money) and a fire (Mars) will be lit tomorrow eve !  I will return soon after the weekend (USA) refreshed, invigorated, with energy flowing.  WoOo HoOo

Find Vesta in your chart to find the home of the sacred fire in your belly.  Find your house of Pisces to locate where she is lighting the beacon for you now by transit.

Locate Mars Rx in Virgo, and any planets in Gemini or Sagittarius (squares- internal) or Pisces (opposite- others and compromise) for how Mars Rx is activating your chart.

Monday the 23 Mars Rx at 23 degrees Virgo, Mars direct at 3 degrees of Virgo on April 13, 2012.  Any planets between these degrees will be getting the spit & polish so to speak.  Mars is the blade, prune well to grow tall and lush ~

I thought I would try some Osho divination: The Book of Secrets.
One thousand and thirty-nine pages, and I got this …
This is soOo Mars Rx !

Why ?  Why is fight so associated with love ? 
It is associated because the same energy can move in different dimensions.  You may call it love or hate.  They look opposite, but they are not so opposite, because the same energy is moving.
Energy can move, can change directions.  It can become hate, it can become love — the same energy.  And the same energy can move inward also, so whenever you have the impulse to do something (fight / anger energy), stop ! 
This is not suppression.  You are not suppressing anything, you are just playing with energy–just playing with energy and knowing the workings of it, how it works inwardly.

Fair Warning – no trespass against any and all Virgos !

Virgos are born to solve, perfect, and protect.
When a festering boil erupts, it will be rooted.

Resistance is futile.

Mars direct Friday April 13, 2012 at 3 degrees Virgo: 10:53pm, CST, USA

Read: Mars has been jammed up our nostrils since entering the sign of Virgo on November 10th aggravating, initiating & rousing any and all micro – minutiae analyzation in full throttle force.

Mars has been mainlining energy into all Virgo planets via direct motion since November 10th.
Now – planets situated between 23 and 3 degrees of Virgo will be taking a retrograde hit, followed by another direct hit.

Read:  Direct and perfect, retrograde and turn the blade.

Mars is the blade, the power, the energy outgoing while direct.
Virgos prune.  Virgos heal.  They are duty – bound to serve others.

Virgos perfect by nature.

Mars while retrograde, is the blade, the power, turned inward  to re-assess the re-visions already made by the firm and steadfast Virgo intellect.  During Mars retrograde, Virgos will heal themselves.
Any and all work not deemed perfect by the perfectionist within will be revived, re-invigorated and resolved.

Natal planets between 23 and 3 degrees of Virgo will feel this Mars Rx strongly by conjunction.  Pisces planets by opposition, and Gemini and Sagittarius will feel Mars Rx by square.

Monday Jan 23rd : New Moon in Aquarius will bring communication undercurrents, intuitive, zaps and transformative vibes with Mars, Pluto and Sun/Moon/ Mercury activating Uranus – sharp intuitive powers !

Creative solutions will present themselves – be aware the Goddess vibe is strong with Lilith opposite Saturn at the culmination degree of 29 Libra.

Energies will be shifting, do not pick battles with authority – Lillith is square New Moon/Sun and opposite Saturn, and Mars is shifting to Retrograde.

Do not pick fights during Mars retrograde – plot and plan, yes – confront, no.

By evening, Moon passes the tense emotional squares, the atmosphere eases as Mars stations Rx, freeing us to enjoy the fizzy Aquarian Moon.

She who would slay dragons must first learn their habits.

Surgical Strike

I felt Mars getting close to Virgo a few days back, now he’s barged in the door !  Normally he hangs around for around 2 months in each sign, but this time, he’ll be staying over pestering Virgos for eight months, counting retrogrades.  He will leave for Libra on July 3rd.

You can count on (haha Virgos count- Mercury rules Virgo and numbers) an increase of energy followed by that same energy turned inward for revision and re-evaluation of what you just did during the retrograde periods. Planets placed in these degrees will feel the pinch as Mars travels over them.
Mars Rx (retrograde) January 23, 2012 at 6:54 pm CST, USA at 23 Virgo
Mars direct April 13, 2012 at 10:53 PM CST, USA at 03 Virgo

Virgos will love this !
An opportunity to revise and tweak the work in order to perfect it ?!

Mars is the adrenalin blade and will challenge, arouse and stimulate your Virgo house, with precise efficiency.  Check the planets placed in your house of Virgo and the aspects they make for further details.

Where you have Virgo sitting in your natal chart is going to be a powerhouse of activity ~>
Also look to the house of Pisces (opposite- conflict through others) and the houses of Sagittarius and Gemini (squaring- internal conflict) for you will be feeling the knife at your back in those houses for the next eight months as well.

Mars is the aggravator, the instigator, the instincts, the competitor, and the desires, the raw power driving the whole natal chart.
When he’s around things get done-

Mars is fire, obviously, and Virgos earth.  Fire is passionate and quick; earth sensuous and slow.  So if in the next 8 months you feel you have a million things to accomplish (Virgos are very detailed, see everything- they are the list makers) and it seems to be taking forever … it is the impatience of Mars breathing down your neck.

If spiral notebook paper shards littering the floor seems catastrophically annoying, or if a cup some idiot designed that won’t fit in the cup holder sets your teeth on edge – that’s Mars aggravating the Virgo bits.

Virgos are practical and value efficiency.  They anticipate and solve problems before anyone else sees them coming, and they are extremely good at multi-tasking.  They are the civil servants to the world.  They heal, fix and tweak everything they can lay their hands on.  They are perfectionists and dedicated to self – improvement.

The above artwork is God of War, Poseidon by Cloudtail2  which I chose because my natal Mars is on the 12th house sign (natural house of Pisces) galloping in the fields of Sagittarius.  I have Virgo on the 9th (natural house of Sagittarius) and expect lots of intense spiritual study in the next few Mars in Virgo months.

Fair warning: lucky you !–if you happen to irrate and cross me (Mars in Virgo) I will more than likely be blunt (Sagittarius) and tell you off lickety-split !  Quicksilver Mercury tongue rules Virgo, and I AM a Virgo.  Being a Virgo Sun conjunct Uranus/Pluto, I have likely given the infraction lots of thought beforehand, and am very likely right, and you had it coming.   Jus’ sayin’.
See below for the issues that will be on fire for you.
If you have Virgo on the ___ house:

1st- your identity, personality 2nd- your values, possessions, 3rd-communication, how you think, 4th- home and family, 5th-romance and creativity, 6th- work and service, health (natural house of Virgo), 7th- partnerships, 8th- sex, reasearch, metaphysics, 9th- higher education, travel, 10th- career, status, 11th- friends and society at large, 12th- mysticism, spiritual healing
