Mars conjuncts Uranus March 22, and this is a fast moving volatile transit capable of producing explosive and surprising circumstances in your personal life and in the world. Uranus-Mars transits have a way of producing situations and surprises that are not what you may expect. This transit becomes exact on March 22, but the energy will become apparent in the days leading up to the 22ond and in the few days after, and the same is true of the other transits as planets enter Aries.
Mars in Aries where it is at home, and works quickly bringing important events to our attention if it is transiting a personal planet in your chart or you have a Sun at 5-13 degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer.
Aries is the natural ruler of the first house representing the self, and the personal desires. In astrology it is considered the newly formed ego of the child that wants what it wants and has not yet learned to temper the desires with control. Mars conjuncts Uranus, the planet of rebellion, explosions, unexpected events, and change, that may not be in the direction you anticipated.
Tempers may flare, accidents can occur, unexpected twists and turns will be the norm, and relationships can become stormy or end altogether. Mars-Uranus is an impulsive combination and may result in reckless abandon or lack of impulse control in situations that arise. Uranus can be a selfish planet and you may have a desire to set yourself free from anything that seems oppressive at the moment. Don't throw the baby out with the bath water, as they say. On the other hand, events may come at you, that you seem to have little control over.
On the world stage, this transit will bring conflict, explosions and explosive situations. Uranus, the planet of coups, rebellions and freedom will be activated by 'the God of War,' and conflict will occur. We could see fires, and fiery situations that come to the fore. In the US Natal chart, Mars squares Jupiter, the planet of finance March 19, 20, and the Uranus-Mars conjunction will affect Jupiter as well. Jupiter in Capricorn rules money and business, education and law as well as foreign people and situations.
The Uranus-Mars conjunction, and other upcoming transits involving planets entering Aries will affect the natal chart of North Korea. Look to hear increased rhetoric pertaining to nuclear situations and events as Mars conjuncts Uranus and the two planets oppose Mercury, then Neptune of this countries natal chart.
The chart of the Vatican will also be affected as Mars, and other planets entering Aries conjuncts Uranus in the 8th house which rules sex and corporate finances.
March 26, Mars squares Pluto in Capricorn and this transit relates to business situations and finance, agendas and propaganda, financial issues concerning corporate money or joint finances, anger and stress and Mars-Pluto is the transit of the bully, or those wishing to impose their will on others.
Mars/Pluto is a transit of anger that at its worst can lead to destructive action or violence and it is best to avoid bad areas, especially at night. It can relate to sexual jealousy and violence or obsessiveness.
It is a potent transit that can be utilized for ambition and drive, but you could push yourself to the point of exhaustion. Often with this transit people find themselves working on corporate projects, money matters or taxes or trying to convince someone of something.
Hidden situations may come to the fore, and on a world level this transit will involve taxes, taxpayer money, crime, sex, corruption and Pluto rules nuclear issues and situations.
March 20, the Sun enters Aries, and March 21 Venus enters Aries.
March 28, the Sun conjuncts Uranus, and this is a day of unexpected events and situations involving change. Sun-Uranus transits are about freedom from all that is oppressive, and often change seems sudden and unexpected. This is another transit where impulse control could be lacking, and best to think things through or wait until another day to act. Of course, changes may come from another direction, outside yourself.
This transit comes on the heels of a full moon in Libra on March 27, that involves Uranus, Mars, the Sun, Venus and Pluto.
Libra is the ruler of the seventh house of marriage and relationships, courts and those considered, "open enemies," or enemies that are known. Libra is a cardinal sign that likes peace and balance, but with the interaction of all of the above planets, plus the fact this moon falls in an opposition to Uranus, peace and harmony is unlikely. This full moon is about relationships of all types, and if you are in a relationship that is troubled or tottering on the edge, it could very well end on this full moon, or move toward an ending, change or divorce.
March 28, Venus conjuncts Uranus at 8 degrees of Aries, and Venus rules love and money. Uranus is the unexpected, so situations may arise with both. Uranus is about separation, so this can be a transit of endings, especially on the heels of the full moon. Of course, Uranus always brings the unexpected, and you may meet someone new if your chart is being aspected in just the right way. But, Venus-Uranus relationships do not necessarily indicate longevity or stability, but rather excitement or a desire for something new that will have to withstand the test of time for long lasting results.
