Fifty-Six More Hours Of Mars In Aries

Let’s talk about Mars in Aries. It’s been six months and nine days of the Action Planet in his most potent terrain – rare and unprecedented in recent decades, as many of you know. Now, as I write, there are just 56 more hours to go.  Check the Moon Calendar for the exact time in your zone but Mars moves into Taurus on Wednesday evening/Thursday morning. Yes, this week. As in soon.

If your strategy for what seems like the last trillion weeks has been something like ‘just keep driving‘ – Mars in Taurus is an ample motel in the desert. It may feel quite strange at first. You’ve gotten so used to screeching into pitstops, one eye on the timer and another on people who are probably going to give you the wrong fuel, speed-scanning guides on how to do rapid repairs to vehicles/relationships/brains moving at high velocity.

Screeching Into Mars in Aries Pitstops

But it’s imminent and substantial. No matter how driven you are, this Mars shift signals a deceleration. Pull into Taurean Sands and take some tactical time. Power down the adrenals. Mars is in Taurus until early March and conjunct Uranus from January 19 to 23rd. It’s an opportune window for radical reboots but they’re not the kind you charge at, Ramzilla style.

The last two days of Mars in Aries are accompanied by Mercury conjunct Pluto, at nearly the same degree as January 2020’s Saturn-Pluto conjunction. It can tint even your most mild of mental meanderings – rabbit-holing your research, the Daily Mail sidebar of shame, old bank statements – with Gothic gloom or occult foreboding.

Mars In Taurus Is A Tranquil Motel – Taurean Sands

Push through that aspect of it so you get to the good bits – transformed thinking, real insights, magic. While it’s classically good for revelations and info-leaks, it’s difficult to say what that could possibly involve now. We’re in a weird age of information  – more in my Turbulent Times update soon – which seems to entail striking reveals being released all the time but then rarely followed up.

Still, if you’re in the mood to assess your last six months of Mars in Aries intensity, Mercury near Pluto is apt astro. At the moment, you may feel too adrenal to view the entire era objectively but aside from being strung-out and either under or over-worked the whole time, you would have scored some significant victories. Performance metrics are harder to gauge when you’re looking around wondering who the hell is in charge.

An Unanticipated Aries Outcome

I’ll save my geopolitical take on Mars in Aries for the T.T. update but this story is super-Mars-in-Aries. For the first time in history, a woman – Amy Bauernschmidt – has been put in charge of a nuclear-armed aircraft carrier. The astro of it is striking: She is a helicopter pilot, a quintuple Aries – Sun, Mars, Saturn, Node, and Eris. The 2013 U.S.A. law change that allowed women into combat was Uranus in Aries, conjunct her Sun. 

This latest announcement occurred with Mars conjunct Eris and approaching her Mars Return. Most of us are understandably edgy about nuke-anything but this is a remarkable sync with the astro. I’m Generation X and thus able to vividly recall an uproar regarding the concept of commercial airlines hiring female pilots. ‘Lady hormones’, it was surmised, disqualified them from work of such complexity. In 1988, which is when Mars was last in Aries for this long, women in service roles – not command positions – was supposedly the natural order.

So, pinging off this to talk about you, what supposedly ‘normal’ or ‘innate’ but actually bulls**t paradigm have you overcome in the last six months? Or if you’re easing your foot off the pedal ever so gently as you spy Taurean Sands on the horizon and don’t want to discuss achievements, how the hell are you?

Does everyone have more empathy for Aries and/or Mars People now?

To me it feels as if access to the tranquillity of Taurean Sands is still blocked for the moment by the upcoming transit of Mars over Uranus in Taurus in the coming week (square Jupiter/Saturn in Aquarius). We need to get past that first…

I hope that is the reason that my life in the past few days has been as gruelling and hectic as it has been forever, for the past 3 years. It’s exhausting… Taurean Sands come to me 🙏

I thought mars in Aries was going to be dangerous for my Aries rising and other cardinal points but tbh apart from an unfortunate disagreement with the GM through his assistant, which was my bad, I’ve successfully channelled the energy through me, embarking on 20, then 40, then 60 day meditation program, daily yoga, regular shiatsu and my first ever diet, losing 6 kg of a 10kg goal. But honestly, I’m cooked after Saturn and Jupiter in cap and desperately need a less stressful and heavy year.

So, pinging off this to talk about you, what supposedly ‘normal’ or ‘innate’ but actually bulls**t paradigm have you overcome in the last six months? How I deal with people who pull power stunts. The range has been from a long time friend to a project manager overseeing a disability bathroom renovation for my daughter who lived 600 km’s away. The latter broke me. Even by my standards my reaction to her stunts were over the top.

Still mopping up the fallout of my last year’s biggest professional fiasco (in December-November). Have absolutely no one, zero persons and zero circumstances, to blame besides myself and my usual crap. Even the pandemic had NOTHING to do with it, and that’s not something many people can say with honesty and sincerity at this time about anything, hahaa. I’ve no idea if Mars had any hand in this (would be weird – I would have expected Martian energy to deliver the opposite result) but I soooooo hope so. Desperately need something to blame this on, even if just a tiny… Read more »

Terrible doesn’t even begin to describe it. I’ve been living a Cardinal square/oppositional nightmare. It opposed my stellium in Libra, including transit Mars opposite natal Mars/Saturn/Pluto WHILE squaring all the Capricorn stuff at the same time! So, I’ve had transit Mars square transit Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter – and the Capricorn planets have been squaring my natal Libra stellium (all at late degrees and all tightly conjunct) for months. Things really fell apart in July. I’ve spent months just stuck in some metaphorical Underworld, surrounded by people dying (I’ve lost five clients this year) and the horrific political dystopia raging… Read more »

Quite a finale to Mars in Aries; the police announced the building had been secured about fifteen minutes after Mars moved into Taurus.

This is such classic astro energy playing out: Mars on the last degree of Aries drops its load on U.S. halls of power. I’m going to be paying more attention to the anoretic & critical degrees. In predictive astrology the anaretic degree is likely to be the degree where we can experience our most significant life-changing moments – i think the U.S. has just experienced one of these.

The final update on yesterday’s “adventures in assertiveness” is that I did manage to buy one pair of monthly lenses of my old prescription from the pharmacy on the other side of London. I stuck a mask on, took three trains and two buses and marched in there like tank girl They had to hand over at least one pair because I need them to see. So since they have a duty of care, I’ve supported their business for years and they invoked the word legal first. Suits me fine actually as there’s a cheap and lovely place much closer… Read more »

Ok so mars at 29 degrees ready to step into Taurus. I dream rarely but last night I had a vivid dream. I had scars on my lower legs and after a while huge flies started to hatch out of them ! I watched with interest not horror. Following on from that a huge black and orange snake arrived out of a tree onto black tarmac road. Again interest not horror. On the whole i had been in conversation with old friends but this was weird. Any ideas guys ? I’m not good with dream recognition.

Scars = times you cheated death /evidence that you survived/ resilience and doubled down on strength as skin is thicker now. Lower legs= forward motion at most basic or obvious level, ie not sexualised or intimate, more like career stuff or geographical progress
The flies hatching out of the scar tissue makes me think of riches that feed you and smell good. Flies indicate abundant nourishment and heat as they show up where it’s warm and food is plentiful
Snake, no idea.
Anyone?

Snakes in dreams are traditionally repressed sexual desires. Or your secret inner wisdom. Or both. But it could be something very individual. What do those colours mean for you? Black and orange. What did the snake do? How did you act when you saw it in the dream?

Hi EMG, I glanced your comment yesterday and last night it knocked on my brain. I feel the orange snake is your inner creativity, or inner wisdom or whatever you feel it is. You need to be wise with how you use it, more importantly do you waste it on things or people who are not worthy. The snake belongs in the 🌲 not the tarmac where it can get run over. Are your creative thoughts being dissed by shit heads. Keep the snake in the tree and nurture it, not on the shit head road. I didn’t get a… Read more »

Sorry I have mars Jupiter conjuction in Aquarius Nataly. I’m a quadruple aries virgo rising. Uranus has been squaring the conjunction the whole year, now Saturn and Jupiter are coming, in a trine to the pluto that opposes the aries stellium. The square forms exact semisquares to my ascendant. The mercury Saturn conjunction will be on my mars. Which forms a biquintle to my chiron which is on my moon.

Just realising that Mars in Aries made me just keep driving through chemo treatment. The last one on New Year’s Eve.

But this Taurus Moon is glad to see the Taurean Sands sign. I can feel it already.

I watched Unbroken last night. Not a good idea under the Merc conj Pluto vibe. It was intense and unrelenting. But I couldn’t look away. Anyway I had a major insight: give up the struggle.

The bull shit paradigm is starting to dislodge from my psyche. But I can’t name it yet.

My natal Mars is conjunct Pluto, so as you’ve pointed out before, I feel like an Aries, constantly under internal pressure to do MORE.

I’ve managed to leave a toxic workplace, where I was employed for 20 years (happily for the first half), and landed the job I wanted, via a very stressful in-between job last year.

Was on a knife edge until the very last weeks of 2020 and still can’t quite believe I pulled the whole thing off.

Congrats Multiair I’m sort of doing the same thing but haven’t yet pulled it off

Well with Uranus hanging around on my Taurus Ascendant making me look hard at my Sun Uranus conjunction, I’m hoping they have a Galactic Suite with transcendental WiFi and a big bath.

Mmmm— I have my natal mars and my north node in Aries around 13 and 15° so that was all at the center of the Mars retrograde earlier in 2020 – and in some ways I’ve grooved on the energy, I think it gave me some focus and stamina for the later stages of a big creative project I’m in the midst of, bringing home and proud of, etc. It’s also coincided with some drama with a Leo/Aries rising friend who has pluto on on her moon and, until recently Saturn—I have the same on my ascendant and I’m ready… Read more »

Natal Mars in Taurus here; the hotel is my home away from home. I also have Jupiter in Taurus so I’m fully anticipating an upgrade to the spa suite and late check-out 😉

I picked up a 12 month school admin role (yes in That Year) and Mars was roughing up my 3rd house. I could be answering an email when some confused student knocking on the door for help then the phone rings. I have Mars in T and I can feel the shift already. And it’s all about me looking after myself for a change. Happiest New Year Everyone!!!

There is a difference between a team supporting you (i.e. everyon has their position or ‘roles’ and all working towards a common goal) and being in supportive energy. This Mars saga has helped parse the difference between these two things. The latter is absolute shite and does not work. The common goal becomes everyone ‘getting support’, but for their own thing. ain’t necessarily knocking it (actually I am on a personal level), but I ain’t got time for that anymore. Understanding and catergorizing folks for peace of mind between friend, associate, aquaintance, teammate, etc.

I’m sooo tired. But I am also doing my Saturn return, dead center of 0* Aqua, in my 12th house so that could be to blame as well.

I’m putting on my sunglasses and speeding through until the motel. It sounds lovely.

Love this idea for the planetary suites: Think I’ll start off by detoxing in the plutonic suite with sulfur baths and sacks of Dead Sea salts and obsidian crystals dangling from the ceiling and end with the Jupiterian motivational makeover please.

Don’t forget the Mars suite, where an infrared sauna workout will develop muscles you never knew you had!

Oh adrenals, adrenaline and anxiety. I’ve got the aqua back and boy does he ramp my anxiety, work load and stuff to do but I’m working on saying no! You do it. Go me! He’s all too eager when it’s just a bit difficult or new to him to hand it over, you take over and sort things. He’s way too used to me just doing it because it’s easier than talking him through stuff, or just simply doing it myself But guess what ? I don’t bother to talk him through things these days, or just do it myself.… Read more »

I ❤️ this post so much
Saw it mentioned on Instagram and rushed over to read it
Because yes, obviously the only speed I do these days is full throttle, adrenaline rush.
I’m interested to know if anyone else has already noticed that things are beginning to shift in key relationships and how good that feels?
Personally yes, I’ve come to appreciate and respect the mars in Aries situation and people born with this placement, you know, nuff said.
Phew.
Come on in mars in Taurus, you are so welcome here.

Mars has been traveling my 6th house and my daily structure has certainly been altered. I have Saturn in the 10th close to my Midheaven so I have some issues with setting unnecessary limits and boundaries or even rules for myself. Mars has really broken those down and I have learned to be more intuitive about what boundaries are keeping me safe and secure and which ones are just self limiting.

Love the road trip/motel analogy! Mars in Aries in my 11/12 house has been a pretty difficult slog for me (late Taurus rising, lots of Scorpio, Cap moon + MC). Aries energy feels so abrasive to me. Even though Mars remains in my 12th house until March, where it is stirring up all kinds of embers, it’ll feel better in Taurus. Happy new year to Mystic and to everyone in this great, incredibly creative community.

Aries anything usually feels foreign and a troubling lack of subtlety (to me)….I don’t even know WHAT to think of this Mars situation we’ve been having.
My natal Mars in Taurus is sooooooooo relieved at the upcoming change. Finally. WHEW.
