Posts Tagged ‘Mars square Uranus’

As a tiny bit of context to this post, look up retrograde movement of planets on Wikipedia if you don’t know what retrograde means.

I have been too busy to peek, but I wonder how many people are writing about the building T-Square in the sky right now. It involves Venus, Mars and Uranus. (And my natal Jupiter… but that is personal) 🙂

The bizarre part about this is that all three of these planets are either slowing down to go retrograde, are just coming out of retrograde (moving slowly out of stationing direct) or are currently retrograde. It seems like it has been a long while since something like this has happened? If I were to hazard a guess – 20 years?

Therefore, not only will relationships have a wrench thrown in them for a couple weeks (or longer), but the pace and timing of these normally quick personal planets (Mars & Venus) are much slower and possibly even distorted as Venus slows to station retrograde.

Uranus is retrograde in early Taurus. Mars is barely direct, creeping through the sky (from our perspective), in very late Capricorn – it reenters Aquarius in a week. And Venus is beginning to slow significantly in late Libra as it preps to turn Rx in early Scorpio on Oct 6th. In other words, wow! Should be an interesting time in the news, in relationships and I can easily see emotions and tempers flaring in the sports world.

The real zinger is if someone has a personal planet or a chart ruler in late Cardinals signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn) or early fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius). Then this T-Square really pulls a punch! For me as I mentioned above, it is tweaking my natal Jupiter which I have exalted in late Cancer.

Depending on house placements and which planets are involved, this might manifest in many many ways. For instance, having these three planets transiting your angular houses (1st, 4th, 7th and / or 10th) will make the manifestation very tangible and real in your life. Probably showing up in your relationships (1st / 7th) or in your public / home life (4th / 10th).

Uranus is the unpredictable planet which demands the truth. It marches to the beat of its own drum, has very impulsive ingenious energy. It is the mad scientist energy and it also plays a major role in spontaneous, insightful, creativity and all things off-planet/outside-the-box like astrology, acupuncture, astrophysics and healing with electricity (for instance, like working with Tesla coils in healing).

Venus shows what we like, what we desire, what do we long for. This includes clothing, fashion items, luxury items, bedding, how we pamper ourselves, etc. It is also our aesthetic sense – do we have refinement, an artistic bent or are we more bohemian and devil-may-care? Venus shows what we like in relationships as well as physical items. Do we want more freedom in relationships (Sagittarius / Aquarius)? Do we want to be front and center in them (Leo / Cancer)? Are we more plodding, patient, taking our time (Taurus and to a certain extent other earth signs)?

Mars is the energy which shows how we go about getting what we want. Are we aggressive? Assertive? Combative? Is there a little refinement or are we gruff and vulgar? Uranus would add some temporary vulgarity and coarseness during this brief transit by the way. Mars rules steel, weapons, steel vehicles, firearms (along with Uranus),  and more.

When all three of these come together… look out! Stay away from firearms for a few weeks. Especially if there is anyone around who might go off emotionally. Speaking of emotions – Venus square Mars increases passion – those two planets alone! Add Uranus, and well, now we have a potential powder keg for any individuals without much awareness of how to self-regulate.

I can easily see players on professional sports teams getting ejected for crazy, rash, impulsive, violent, emotional reactions. No matter what sport – especially soccer, football and who knows, if a pitcher plunks a batter who has this T-Square hitting his natal Pluto or Mars… then there might be a bench-clearing fight on our hands! (Baseball for those not in the US or Japan)

And as we have impulsivity, heightened reactions and increased passions, of course relationships are going to be affected! Be aware that you might want to think twice, take some deep breaths before reacting emotionally for the next couple weeks. Take a little bit of time and space to let your head clear if you can. Nothing like making a huge mistake and wishing you could have taken that outburst back.. Of course it can be repaired. And with Mars and Venus involved, love making might help with that repair – provided there is enough trust at that point.

So may cooler heads prevail. May everyone have the insight and awareness to notice when their egos are heating up, or putting up a serious resistance. At least with these planets involved (at least Mars and Venus), we tend to blow hot quickly and then cool off just as quick. Although with Uranus in the mix, the affront might be too egregious. Then it will take time to repair and forgive.

Lay off the gas. Slow down. Take some deep breaths. Yin yoga. Feldenkrais, Craniosacral Therapy, Deep Tissue massage would all be good during this time.

And good luck! 🙂

Thanks for reading as always!

Who has heard that we currently have 6 planets retrograde (Rx)? Who knew that twice in the past six weeks we had partial eclipses?! Anyone aware that we have Neptune and Pluto back in sextile aspect, meaning the opportunity for Yods (double inconjunct or Quincunx aspects) is now back?

Well I’m an astrologer – part time anyway – so it is my job to keep tabs on some of this stuff. 🙂

Actually at this precise moment, we have Mercury stationing direct on Sunday, Mars stationing direct at the end of August and then in early Sept Saturn slowly turns direct as well. Plus Jupiter just came out of Rx a few weeks ago – so it is slowly gaining steam. What does all this mean?

It means that you might be stuck behind several people at stop lights who just sit there when the light turns green – Mercury ruling traffic is basically standing still in the sky for the next 4 – 5 days – plus Mars rules steel and machinery (cars and trucks for that matter).  I have had to honk at three people who did this in the last couple of days! (I live in a relatively educated and more enlightened in some ways city, so it is a little amiable tap of the horn; one thing I love about Charlottesville is that you don’t hear many horns blaring.) So when I say this tumultuous astrological season is wrapping up with a… I am looking for the “Blleeuurrr” sound which means it is tapering out, fizzing out, burning out, amounting to not much! With all these planets slowing down to turn direct (come out of Rx), things in our lives might be at a stand still for a few days or even a couple weeks (if not longer).

This summer has also seen (on August 3rd) a tight configuration involving Mars square Uranus by transit with the Moon also hopping on board (conjunct Uranus). Did anyone have or witness some bizarre irrationality that day? I sure did! Mars / Uranus is explosive enough but then throw the Moon in the mix and tempers might flare over petty little things. That was happening in the early Fixed signs – Taurus and Aquarius to be exact.

And the second eclipse happened early on August 11th – with a Yod to the Sun involved as well! Specifically, the Sun was in Leo along with Rx Mercury, and there was a (3 degree orb) Yod pointing at the Sun from Neptune and Pluto! Thankfully there didn’t seem to be too much chaos / bad news as a result (confusion from Rx Mercury, mixed with potent Sun / Pluto discord).

I am really looking forward to clearer skies! By late September we will be down to 3 planets Rx plus Chiron (and Pluto is direct October 1st). But then Venus does go Rx in October – be aware in new relationships (get second opinions about new people met under that influence) and try to be more flexible and patience in existing relationships as well. ❤

By late November things will really quiet down as far as Rx planets go. In fact, January and February will be surprisingly quiet (nothing much Rx!). Wow! Of course transits continue, progressions evolve, habits arise, life continues, cycles go through, waves arise. We can surf! Breathe and surf.

Thank you for reading!
