Seriously massive Mars Vibe this week people – see your Horoscopes for more, also the D.M.

As per the Check Your Mars post a few down, it’s a good time to get your own Mars fine-tuned.

This is the strongest Mars vibe we have had since the Grand Cardinal Cross of April.

Stay OUT of the way of people who may not do Mars energy so well, don’t choose this week to make your shark jumping debut and definitely refuse to be power tripped by random fuqed up Muggles.

AND i have this pertinent email query from a subscriber:

Dear Mystic –

I am reading your blog post right now about the upcoming Mars-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, and how we should all be working our natal Mars. My question is this: Does being born with a planet in retrograde have any bearing on how its influence(s) play out in one’s life? I was born with Mars retrograde in Capricorn – and, although I have a strong drive to succeed, I feel like I often struggle to manifest things practically – I seem to have issues with execution. The rest of my chart aside, do you think being born with Mars retrograde could have any bearing on that and, if so, how can those of us born with major planets retrograde work more in tandem with that influence instead of struggling against it?

Many thanks for your wonderful site and insight!

Mars In Waiting.

Dear Mars in Waiting,

i get it, i really do. I have Mars Retrograde in Virgo and sometimes feel like I specialize in devising the details of lofty missions and then somehow undermining them or getting lost in a blur of revisions.

But remember that Mars Retro is quite common! And you know how we KNOW that a high amount of visionary poets, screenplay writers and original thinkers seem born under Mercury Retro, why can’t it be the same with Mars retrograde?

I would say Mars Retro in Capricorn would bestow enormous intensity – Mars banked up, Mars super analytical. I may have an enormous bias here but i think Mars in Capricorn is SO hot that retro or not, you’re still blessed with an awesome Mars.

In fact, i don’t think retrograde planets limit anyone at all. Sure, if you were going to start a big enterprise, maybe you time it to initiate with a direct Mars but the world is full of sensational Mars Retrograde types.  I think negative takes on it are a bit old-school. I mean, God, Richard Branson (who probably is the definition of “self made” has Mars officially in “detriment.”

People born with Mars Retro in Capricorn – Frida Kahlo and the web entrepreneur David Karp.

Also, the KEY thing about being Mars in Capricorn now is that you’re Pluto-powered.

Thoughts?

Hey North Country Girl! I still consider myself a newbie but have been studying off and on for a couple years. I have something similar to you (Mars in Pisces – but trine my venus in my 9th) Mars in Pisces has been a struggle for me (literally in my actions and in trying to figure out what to do with it through astrology). I once had an astrologer tell me that when my mars gets really angry- instead of using violence I use emotion (and maybe some crying lol). Its definitely not an ideal mars but I think it… Read more »

Hello Astro Friends! Following Mystic’s advice I have looked into my own…… personal…… Maaaarrs…. (Personal Jesus, anyone?). Anyway, this is what I found: Mars conjunct Venus in the 9th House in Pisces; square Uranus, and trine my Ascendant and Pluto. HELLLLPP? If there’s anyone here that can help me begin to understand what this means I would be so grateful. I often utilize the ‘Interactive Portrait’ feature at astro.com so I understand the elements on a binary level (e.g. Mars in the 9th House). Since I’m somewhat new to Astro and haven’t had my b-chart properly analyzed, I’m struggling to… Read more »

i think I’ve got it – Toro full moon saw me done with unregulated comfort eating. Pluto/Mars is zapping (square) my sweet tooth (12 Libra Venus). Venus/Saturn just inside my 6th assists. I’m on a flippn diet.

I’m not liking this at all; think I’ll feel better in a few days when Mars is sextille my ascendant, & better yet when Pluto does the same (I had a taste of this earlier this year – far more productive than Chiron on ASC, Neptune on N Chiron & Chiron trine N Neptune after which I’m supposed to experience this huge healing & insight, oh yeah? Yeah, wake me up when it’s over!) Spoke to my adult children yesterday about my reasons for wanting to relocate interstate, now I feel like the cold-hearted, unfeeling, stone-faced ghoul, cancelled my hair… Read more »

Pluto-Mars squaring my Mercury today. My ex husband’s architect girlfriend is coming to live with him and he bought a new Mercedes. Meanwhile, my boss reiterated that I am going to get laid off any moment now. FML. I know I am being petty now, but WTF. Can Saturn get out of my second house already?!? And, Pluto in my 4th, kill me (again) or move on. And Mars, you stupid pansy Mars at 0 Libra, at least you figured out whose life you’re living now.

lol re your ex (sorry) and crap re: your job and yep, Pluto/Mars is squaring my Venus and Venus/Saturn are meeting up on my DC later this week. I’m just keeping my eyes open for the messages and I’m almost already laughing at what I might see x

I have Virgo Mars in 10th conjunct Mercury and Sun in 11th.
I am driven but have moments of decadence and hedonism too. I think it creates balance, otherwise we’d be wound up way too tight.

Wow, I identify with the Virgo vs Sagg energy conflicting. Virgo is the meticulous, anxious observer and Sagg is more carefree and peppy. Those are some of the main energies in my chart too…though I’ve got totally different planets. In Virgo, Sun, Mars, Venus, and Mercury (whew). In Sagg, Saturn, squaring my Sun and Mars, and Uranus, squaring my Mercury. I’ve also got a strong Jupiter in Aries. Anyway, I’ve done the bohemian travel the world thing. And now I got back down to earth and am getting work done. I’m 27 now and not settled into a career yet…I’m… Read more »

I have brought this up before and i can’t seem to suss it out: I think my Mars is broken. I have Mars conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn, 2nd house, sextile Saturn in Scorp in the 12th. Shouldn’t this be, like, a super Mars? I’ve always been incredibly ambitious- and have nothing to show for it! I really am very responsible when I know what I’m supposed to be responsible for; and I’ll work like a dog and never stop when I know what needs to be worked towards. But I can’t seem to find a goal to work towards that… Read more »

Wondering the same thing!

Cap Mars in the 10th, but then a Sag Sun-Scorp Uranus, a whole bunch of Libra, and a Gemini Moon. My ambition is to become a rich person by wandering around pointing at particularly nice-looking trees. I feel it most fiercely through an embarrassing but burning lust for nice things. As a Pisces Rising, this is an uncomfortable side of myself.

Let me take a gander at this, maybe something will resonate? Mars conj Jupe in Cap, in 2nd house = you recognize your incredible ability to get stuff done, this is an integral part of your sense of self-worth (and you value your ambition). The sextile to Scorp Saturn in 12th…could be your Mars/Jupe is connected to a deep (and perhaps unconscious) ability to plumb, in a structured way, your inner depths and the collective’s. Or this could be some past-life stuff, if you believe, in that you reached a level of depth through structured work, and this is what… Read more »

Mars doesn’t at all mean worldly success. The Universe doesn’t give a damn for that. 2nd house is about what you value, your ability to value yourself and hold to what you know to be correct. I think worldly ambition would be more a 10th house thing, external would be something in the upper half of the chart. Having an epic 2nd house Mars I think means you do you. And, there’s nothing more “successful” than that in the end, yeah?

calypso
calypso

yeah but it’s CAP, and btw I totally get your question AKAPluto and like your idea about structure because I’m the same – strong 8H Cap Mars in a grand trine with sextiles and have trouble finishing things, don;t care. The Mars square Jupe/Merc is what I always blame, but, I have a 12H Saturn too, and now I’m wondering if this might be a shared issue.

Fellow Cap Mars here.

I have a pretty strong Mars but it wasn’t until I hit 40 that it really kicked in.

I wonder if having a Mars ruled by Saturn means that we only truly come to fulfill its potential as we get older?

nice idea! or after your come to terms with Saturn, or perhaps for me as a Scorp after this Saturn in Scorp experience?!

I embark on a 13 day tropical vacation to the Big Island of Hawaii 11/11. T Mars/Pluto is in my 5th house conjunct my S Node and Mercury. I’m visiting my also Aqua Auntie, and I’ll go see the new born lava, how Mars/Pluto is that?! : ) Hard to leave though, I have a new romance and I have SO much creative energy flowing that going on a tropical vacay while I still have warm weather and time to create at home almost seems silly. I promise to fully enjoy myself, though I am a little hesitant to board… Read more »

Good advice about staying out of lower vibing peeps way. But then its my bday today so I’m a good target for my mother’s pass-ag shite first thing in the morning: a “happy bday” without the i love u part. She won’t say it! Even when I say it, she won’t return it. Nothing like getting shafted by ur mom first thing on your bday. thanks for remembering, mom. Reminds me of that bugs bunny cartoon with a wolf I think spinning some sort of torture wheel: no not happy bday, please no not that!

She’s a toro. I should clarify she’s mad at me. She was planning a little party for my bday but I’ve been really sick & not up for celebrating so a while ago I said that’s nice but can we not do this bcuz I don’t feel up for it and she was like nope you’re having this party. I found that hurtful but knowing her I just said “ok” bcuz I didn’t want any drama on top of being sick. But then a few days later I pushed the issue again like “I don’t feel like your hearing me,… Read more »

Virgo Sun, Taurus rising with Mars on the horizon. Aqua Moon (thankfully). I have to manage my Mars, else it gets me somewhat intensely wayward and intense. Focussed direction is good. At times such as these I am best to keep my mouth shut if the heat turns up. 🙂

Same Lux Interior… Mars in Leo. My hair is looking great and my new studio is getting sorted.

I really enjoyed reading the ‘rant’ on don’t be a retrogradiest. It’s true. Even though the planets don’t move backwards for real, sometimes it is the only way to get out/move forward/avoid being hit/…

Last years have been hell years for me and many others. I feel like I’m now heading into good and even better than what I lost. Blessings to everyone that did it ruff through the ZZ. Time now for backwards growth.

RE: Richard Branson, his spaceship just had a fatal accident killing a test pilot. It will probably be ruled “pilot error”, a result of one of the pilots pulling a wing-disengaging lever too soon into acceleration, causing the plane to be torn to shreds by aerodynamic forces. Don’t pull that lever too soon, folks. Get up to speed first.

Just riffing on MM’s callout. Luckily, one of the pilots survived even though there is no ejection seat! Apparently, he may have been thrown clear (at mach 1, 10 miles up, in a flat G spin, with tons of aluminum shards whipping around him). I gotta go see if that guy is having a Jupiter transit!

I don’t know what any of it means. All I know is that my Mars is in the 12th house in Taurus and Mars is currently transiting my 6th house.

Ok, I’ve been giving this some thought. Mars in toro 12th is pure cosmic universal sexual healing.
Mine is opposite Uranus (besides the moon Chiron Venus conj), and I’m going to invent some kind of orgonite accumulator/electroshock self-healing machine. Thingy. Yep.

Other than being saddened to learn of your temporary health probs, your post had me in stitches, especially “the upside is that now the sales people who constantly call me are terrified by Eartha Kitt meets the Grim Reaper rasping back at them.” 🙂

You have a way with words.

Up the garlic, honey, veggies, vit C and SLEEP glorious sleep – sending you lots of recuperative Mars vibes for your healthy self to resurface when ready. x

Mars is currently in my 8th house and all I can think about is sex with the Ex. Which is annoying because I have exams all week and should be studying. Then I’m moving house and really can’t afford to be languishing around fantasising about … yes well at least Jupiter is in my 4th which is auspicious for the move. Natally I have a 10th house Mars and still get very lazy about work and career. Perhaps not lazy to the point where I’m totally stuck and stagnant, I’m always plugging away at Some Thing .. but not as… Read more »

Oh hi! Meeeeeeee too. Freaking delicious exes and their sexywexy memories. None of the other men in my orbit – the Aries adventurer, the Very Boring Taurus, and the pan-poly-everything Gemini poet (all SUCH astro-stereotypes!!!) are doing it for me. Or to me. Mmmrph. And Jupes is only stressing me out about the interminable mess that I live in. Humph! Empathy, prowlin. You’re gonna ace those exams regardless. Xxxx

I’m going to do my retro rant again. Planets do not retrograde. They look to us like they are but it’s an illusion. The problem here of course is multi faceted. The very name ‘retrograde’ is not doing these transits any favors. And the thought form called ‘retro’ is now so well defined by astrologers that mercury retro is a widely accepted phenomena amongst many more muggles who’s angst rises regularly as we are told ” well there she goes, mercury is now moving backward” . We have all agreed to this, things are going backward, wrong, slow etc… A… Read more »

Oh and you reminded me of a Buckminster Fuller quote:

“Humans beings always do the most intelligent thing…after they’ve tried every stupid alternative and none of them have worked.”

See, your just like every other human being.
Unless your an alien ? Omg. Does that resonate with you ? Or maybe just a human being with an alien retro implant ! Shit.

Yeah, I’m never for planet shaming, and the retrograde is too easily cast as the perp in interps.

*Apparent* is the key word. From the outside or from a certain POV — Earth, a cultural norm, etc. — the planet appears to work “wrong”. But it’s not wrong, it’s just a matter of perspective.

Yes, when I mentioned on the other post about my Rx planets and being backwards I was only kidding.

Love my Mercury Rx.

How that works for Mars I don’t know but what Mystic says makes sense.
