Mars will enter Libra this Saturday December 7 and will move into the cardinal T-square with Uranus and Pluto during the next few weeks. When the Sun enters Capricorn (Winter Solstice) on December 21 and through New Year’s Eve the T-square will definitely be acting up. Jupiter is retrograding towards the Grand Cross position as well.
In July 2012 I wrote: If you have the Sun, Moon or Mars in a cardinal sign you will feel something. If your birthday falls near March 21-30, June 21-30, September 21-30 or December 21-30 you will have no doubt about it... I’ve learned from personal experience that Mars in a square or opposition transit is not necessarily a bad thing... You can’t always keep track of the transits but once you feel a big change in your energy level, find a project to do or an activity such as sports. Don’t fight with people but work with them. Get up and get moving. It’s probably just a Mars transit giving you a jump start.
I have already noticed a difference in my energy level for a week now. I have Mars in 0º Capricorn. I checked and guess what? Mars has moved within a 10-degree orb of the square to my natal Mars so it’s no wonder. I’ve been keeping busy with holiday stuff but I’ve been moody recently. Cancers are prone to it. I’ve been dropping things. I tripped and fell down yesterday. Ouch. Accident-prone is definitely a sign of Mars acting up. And Mars has been getting an early start. This time he snuck up and bit me on the behind.
If you have noticed any of these irritations, it’s probably Mars aspecting your planets. Take a deep breath, relax, stop everything you’re doing and center your self. Clear your mind. Meditate. If you are in the middle of something important, slow down and be extra careful. Exercise more but do it carefully.
Once I had a car accident during a difficult Mars transit. My nephew, very wise for his age, commented, maybe now you’ve used up all the bad energies in the air and nothing else bad will happen for a long time! This made sense to me. Astrologers have said that excess Mars energies cause things to happen. When two people get into a fight, we say it clears the air. When we have a tantrum or a crying jag, we are simply venting. If I fall and get a bruise or I break a glass, I consider it a small price to pay. I am releasing the Mars energies. Nothing else bad will happen during this period. And I’m usually right.
That said, exercise patience, think before you speak, watch where you’re going, drive carefully and take your time. No drag racing.
