*Mars Trine Uranus Is What You Need Now

Shamanic Art

Mars trine Uranus for the rest of August is what you need now. In turbulent times – aka now until February – we are all Mars People. We’re compelled to call on our Mars energy, exemplified by our natal Mars. Why? Because Mars is a Warrior and this is a battle. Some scenarios are best met in combat stance, not with a sigh or an affirmation.

Your natal Mars is the key to how you respond to threats and opportunities. You can see my delineation of it in your Astral DNA if you don’t know it. If you do, meditate on it now. See the sign as the costume (or armor) and assertion style. Its house is the terrain you’re strong in. It is also, to be fair where you are hyper-reactive. The aspects Mars makes represents allies and opponents. If you’ve got a tight Mars conjunction, then those planets could be both. I know there are a few people here with the Mars, Pluto, and Uranus conjunction: that’s amped at the moment.

Mars Trine Uranus Means You’re Picking Up On The New Turf Rules

But it’s not only your natal Mars. Look to the current Mars situation. If you’re trying to push through or change something at Warp Speed, you need to work with where Mars is at now. It’s been just 36 hours of Mars in Virgo and how many of you have discovered glitches, secrets, and disloyalty? Thankfully, Mars trine Uranus is too busy to fuq around recriminating and over-analyzing. Mars is going to aspect Uranus, the South Node, Saturn and Pluto in the next several weeks.

It is the best opportunity to deploy the Virgo Vim and Virgo Vision to reconfigure your life for the new Earth Era. Mars is trine Uranus for the remainder of August: the innovations you are pondering this week are vital. They may seem whimsical or you could feel compelled into them. But this Martian influence is fantastic for fine-tuning your ambitions or new turf rules. Want magic? Put all your force and might into innovating or finding fresh responses to certain stimuli.

Saturn on the South Node till October is hard. It’s gloomy and it means that ordinary challenges can evoke long-dormant ( you thought) memory and emotion. If I could speed up this astro-crap, I would. But Mars in Virgo is going to help. You can swiftly assess whatever emerges and put it in its rightful category. Eg; I am recalling X now because Y scenario also has elements of Z.

We Are All Mars People Now

Whatever flash pointed or emerged like a ten-headed hydra in late June and July is back or bigger in January 2020. All of the dredging up Saturn crap is enervating. But if you’re sitting there thinking something along the lines of “may as well not bother” or “fuq it,”  – reset your stance. Uranus in Taurus and the new Saturn-Pluto era are significant. It would be weird if you were not emotional and restless with it.

But you have a choice: Do you be bitter toward the various end-of-cycle forces in play? Or happy but on a semi-permanent bender with drugs and humor to hide your feelings of futility?

There is a third way: draw on the strengths of your natal Mars and the currently ultra-potent Mars to defy all the fuqery. Start Now.

Clever clever prescient Mystic, SORRY THIS IS SOOOO LONG! I’ve been meaning to write to you for at least 3 weeks. All you mapped out about massive change and destabilisation and individuation in the last 6 weeks has happened to me. I got ‘hitched’ 15 months ago in May last year… a ‘commitment ceremony’, not a formal marriage. And anyone attending would have told you I was committed. I collected 3 kinds of vows – including an Eskimo one that was pithy, powerful and said “my meat is your meat; your back is my back”. We’d known each other another… Read more »

I don’t know how much more of this I can take. I can’t seem to make anything happen. So many doors seem to be slammed shut, can’t get an interview for another job, I can’t even get the animal shelter to return my calls about volunteering. Work is at stratospheric levels of dysfunction and it’s affecting everything – sleep, motivation. I’ve even gone off yoga because I can’t bear to sit still and think about my life atm. My natal Mars is in Virgo 2nd house conj Pluto/Uranus in the first. This post has been helpful, thank you Mystic. In… Read more »

Chrysalis

Thank you, I really appreciate this. xxx

Wish Upon a Star

It doesn’t sound whiny, you are just exhausted. I admire how you can still declutter and make small steps.

I hope you find the space you need to bring in good energy.

And maybe when you sit on the yoga mat the space will open.

Chrysalis

Thank you, Wish. As a natal Mars in Virgo, cleaning/decluttering is often my go-to brain-calmig activity. A sense of frustration has also brought clarity around things such as, why am I keeping that outfit/book/skincare that I don’t really like? It’s all getting moved on.
That’s very wise about the yoga. I hadn’t thought of that. xxx

Thank you!! <3

MutatisMutandis

The Mars/Venus/Sun conjunction is building up right around my natal Venus in 7H Virgo… which is square my natal Mars in 10H Scorpio (also conjunct my MC and Uranus in the 9th). I’m dreaming of ex-lovers trying (and failing) to reach me and getting pushed into a job promotion that I wasn’t really looking for but seems really inescapable (requires going back to management which I wasn’t sure I wanted). I’m trying to get a publishing venture going by January 2020. I spent June/July of this year relocating so I could reduce expenses to move elsewhere, and I’d hoped to… Read more »

Mars in Sag in the 5th.

Lately working out has been even more necessary. Like, I’m crawling outta my skin if I skip too many days.

Also been doing lots of little drawings in the morning. They get my head in the right place to start the day.

Wish Upon a Star

Reread this post again this morning and it makes so much sense as to what happened yesterday. Well I live in a part of Queensland which is conservative, low socio economic territory. A place Pauline Hanse would be happy to call home. So I booked a health package which included sauna, massage , natupath and detox herbs. So yesterday I was having my sauna and as I was running late for my massage I stood outside in the hall way and called out. No response instead I overheard the receptionist discussing with me with my new masseur and others. She… Read more »

So I went over my year ahead report and realised this is my personal Jupiter opposition Sun.

Some moron makes a slur and I defend myself and self actualise through it.
I rang this muggle and confronted her, the reasons were pathetic, I called her a dozy cow because of past incompetence. She starts with ” Excuse me”. I tell her to fuq off and hang up. So satisfying.

Wish Upon a Star

I just checked my progressed chart and Chiron has just entered Aries the Ram, conjunct progressed moon and Saturn in Aries in the 12th house.

I think the ram is frustrated with wishy washy lack of boundaries and wants to butt heads. The visual sounds funny anyway.

MissDee

I am loving this post. And being a Virgo rising I’ve already started to taste Mars in it. It’s still in my 12th house and will be moving in my 1st – like all of the other planets transitioning Virgo – around the NM in Virgo which is on my rising too. I anticipate an intense September and so will enjoy the peace of the 12th house – will on holidays – until then.

Saturn on the south node is a drag

Chrysalis

It sure is. I am at the end of my rope with this.

yes, natal Virgo mars pluto uranus in the 12th here. Had a great weekend away with 3 other women, lots of self and each-other nurturing- walking in through rainforest-y tracks in a valley, gently tripping on entheogens.. We had a parallel universe type encounter with the guardians of the cave in a location which apparently has always been known as a women’s place by the indigenous people of the area. Lots and lots of huge Gymea lillies in bloom throughout the landscape (they are a native Australian flower that shoots up to about 15-20 feet tall, with deep scarlet petals).… Read more »

Sam

It’s ok, Saturn on his dsc is probably doing your ex over too ..
Mars in 3rd house would rev up “communities” vibe and the talky energies…
Oh you would have Chiron square Mars,
Is there an aspect with Neptune too maybe? I’m trying to account for AA hostility
Either way, it sounds tricky.
Band you love sounds like good medicine Scorpiodawn.
But also I mean you’re in recovery.. so it figures that you won’t have boundless energy to offer the world.
Check Progressed moon? 12th house aspects? X

scorpiodawn

my progressed moon is in scorp…7th hse…awesome news re saturn, ill have a look…yes im caring for two ladies in my community…?
thankyou Pi!

Being in the present moment in times feels like being on a personality disorder roulette wheel. I start to get anxious at times then check in and am so not disassociative and completely aware of multiple levels of complexity. The fact that multiple levels suck so hard is not anything I can control. I had a psychology teacher who told us “psychosis is a natural reaction to unnatural events.” Mars transiting virgo 12th house? At Base level, shared reality, the self organizing electrically stimulated meat sack is moving out. All sub personalities can refer to natal mars/Jupiter in 5th house… Read more »

Another thought, if anyone is (like me) feeling really jagged and a bit drained from the June/July energies and isn’t sure if they can muster the fuel to take on any (more) change or emotional stress, even if that is positive stress. Maybe try to re-visit the things that help you clock back into who you are, that kind of core / playful 6 of cups energy where you are innocently yourself. Mars Attacks can be a total thing (Venus in aries here ok) and also Aries energy is I think also very pure and directive, innocently selfish, doing the… Read more »

That’s exactly how I’m feeling, Pi. I’m a bit worn down, feel emotionally “soggy,” and really can’t muster up the vim/excitement/vigor that I usually can for most things (work, fun, travel, romance). Trying to pay attention to my body and just chill the F out, but there’s another underlying pulse that feels like I need to be “prepping” for things. Definitely going to try to call in some more playful, restorative energy while riding out this transit!

LotusFlower

Agreeing with you Pi and Astrogeek. I have kept getting Page of Cups hints from my tarot deck – which is the playful, imaginative side of emotion ie not just plumbing the depths. Finding it hard to remember how the hell I access it though! And jeez, Astrogeek, yes the exhaustion has been real (insomnia at nighttime with Saturn-SN-Pluto things swirling around and endless action daytime to prep and you know just manage). Thank goodness for Mars into Virgo – have been back to some good overnight herbal infusions (nettle and oatstraw) which help and actually managed some early morning… Read more »

I keep forgetting that virgo is actually about health and simple routines, too. Thanks for the reminder x

Yes! The prepping thing. I also noticed Mystic mentioned the two speed pace in the dm

I really picked up on this @ mystic’s text so I’m thinking on that I guess X

Alysun

Bingo! Thank you for the insight! I’ve been searching all day today for some positive inspiration to up my usually pep that’s currently drowning. And knowing I’m not imagining it helps.

Sam

My 8th house Mars in Aquarius needs an end game and a loooot of mental space to get a fresh run-up. In this case it’s freedom from stupid petty junk, including but not limited to my own. Also I heard a very cool insight about capricorn moon, sex/power and emotional availability – my own.
Saturn south node in my 7th house feels like the last 100km of a very long freeway journey. Dreams are offering new sensations.

Electro

Oh boy, well that explains it. And yes, I can carry on text message conversations with 10 different people simultaneously while reorganizing my life and running errands because I’m a Mars in Gemini. I’ve also purchased an exoskeleton, a posture corrector that relieves back pain. Old Saturn needed some attention.

Starinspired

Awesome post! Spine tinglingly accurate.
And the house of rulership, where our Aries is, on the cusp or situated?
Is it then the deeper inspiration/point of all we’re doing/pursuing now, underneath it all & where what we’re doing, eventually lands (where the efffects are felt)?…
Along with the house where mars is currently transiting in Virgo, being where the action is occurring, the scene’s unfolding at present (where it’s all plating out)

I have Mars in Virgo (conjunct Saturn) in the 6th House

Mars entered Virgo (my rising sign from 8 degree on) on Sunday 18th at 6,30 am. I just checked it now. I didn’t know at the time. But on that day, when I woke up, I had breakfast, took a shower, ended a holiday with a Spanish guy (we had been traveling together in a motor home for the past week) that wasn’t making me nor him happy, bought a train ticket and jumped on it by 2 pm on that same day. Arrived at home, ordered pizza and started laundering my clothes. On 7 pm the day after I… Read more »

Hmmm, after my recent break up the power and assur-ity of Mars seems very appealing. I have Mars in Aries; Venus and Mercury in Aries; Mars in the 11th House; Moon opposition Mars; Venus conjuction Mars… I’ve done so much work to deal with the negative aspects of my Mars personality and find them generally a source of strength. Carry me through now!

Pisces Sun, Cancer rising, Libra Moon.

IC, Juno, Mercury, Ceres, Mars, NN, Sun and a couple of witchy asteroids like Morgan. All within 10 degrees in T 4th H. I’m glad you said half grounded, cause half of me is bewildered but acknowledging the learning processes at play.

Natal Mars in Taurus, trine my natal Mercury and Sun! I am so enjoying this! Mars in Virgo is always one amazing trip. However, I made great use of the current Uranus transit to my Mars by tons of travel near and far! Oh, how I love Mars in Virgo transits! I feel like a little kid! 😀

Great Post Mystic. So I’ve got natal Mars in Libra in the 8th house opp Saturn in Aries 2nd house. Mars square to Merc in Cancer 4th house. Mars makes a trine to 4th house Sun in Gemini. Natal 2nd house Saturn in Aries trines Jupiter in Leo 5th house conjunct Venus. Omg the detail sounds very Virgoan and my Piscean ascendent is impressed but what the hell does it all mean? Can anyone just give me simple observations please? Oh its OK I just read my Astral DNA, it has already been done for me. My progressed Mars is… Read more »

Sam

Progressions. The outer planets barely move, but I understand that it’s the times/eras marked by stationing of the progressed planets that we can benefit from looking at, or get some insight from. (Likewise the inner planets).
So when you were born Neptune was retrograde. At some point in the past X years, Neptune stationed direct (by progression) – play around with your astro charts to learn when that was. It will be like a decade or 5 years or something. Outside of that I’m not sure what Neptune meeting natal Neptune is.. 🙂

Wish Upon a Star

Thanks Pi.

Idea – perhaps you could offer a natal Mars focused audio zap or reading, Mystic?

Oh Mystic, those of us that are already hopelessly in love with you (without meaning to freak you out or be creepy in anyway!), are just going to be even more in love with you after reading this post. 🙂 This is POWERFUL. The third way – a huge yes to that. So, so very needed right now. I think I’ve always had troubles embracing my Mars and love how you encourage this.

Yeah Mars/Aries combat style can be a bit That side wins, or This side does. Third way is a nice way of getting Mars Capricorn into good higher power mode.

My natal Mars is in Virgo so I am HYPER with details and it’s making me CRAZY but I am picking up on so many things and not letting anything slide and it’s intense. I don’t know if I’m doing it right lol

I take the #3 way, please…it’s been a highly productive year thus so far…I’m digging the Saturn meets Mars in Virgo Martian Warrior vibe.

flashfire

Wow. Totally apt. Got blind-sided this weekend by SN Saturn and am trying to move aside as it teams with Pluto to pulverize my childhood. But coming out with renewed determination to fight for my plan, forge my ambition and become Virgo clear about where my own responsibilities lie. That does require tweezing those actual responsibilities apart from my tendency to St. Virgo out about certain things though. Think that might be key. This post plus the Daily Mystic for Tuesday is so helpful.

Pulverized childhood. So apt.
