Mars rules Aries and, like Saturn in Capricorn or Neptune in Pisces, is ultra-potent in his own sign. So a phase featuring Mars this amped up and for so long is remarkable. It’s also rare. The last time Mars was on his home turf for anywhere near this long was in 1988. But that phase fell short of 2020 by about a week. The previous record for Mars in Aries without a break was in the 1940s.
But Mars in this feisty Fire sign until January 2021 is not only notable because of the non-stop Ramzilla action. It includes a Mars Retrograde from September 10 until November 14, a piece of work in itself. Mars Retro can be an incredible phase but it has rules and those rules are worth following. And because Mars goes back and forth between 14 and 28 Aries, it means three x Mars-Saturn and Mars-Pluto squares.
It’s like the business end of the Saturn-Pluto opposition from January. For a broader take on what that was all about, see my Turbulent Times series of (Mega Mystic member-only) posts. Or Freak In About The Economy.
This Mars Mp3 is my take and it’s exactly what I would say to my closest friends or family – it’s not a “hey wow guys” take because this is a difficult period. But where there are threats, there are also opportunities. And handled properly, this much Mars oomph is fantastic on a personal level.
