Mars the God of war, the hero, the warrior, soldier, sportsman, defender of the Earth and Homeland, the evolutionary need to manifest our desires not only in this lifetime, but several lives. PISCES, ruled by Neptune and Jupiter, speaks to us about the longings of the collective,about the ethereal, about that, we call imagination, the collective unconscious, about that part of our psyche that recognizes the union with the whole, defying any kind of scientific explanation (Neptune), about the source of all of our knowledge.
PISCES represents the end of a cycle, something that concludes, something which is completed and is getting prepared to begin again, with the flow of experiences gained in the journey ending. Mars in PISCES, takes place every two years, the last time was in February 2011. Do you remember what was happening in your life then?
Mars in PISCES awakens the anger and rage of the collective, the fears, the frustrated desires of the group.
People who identify with the victim, will be reminded of their own insecurities and resentments. Suddenly, it is difficult to be clear and precise about anything and as the boundaries blur and slowly disappear, we must learn to assert ourselves. Ancestral fears manifest themselves in many ways in our everyday life and it is very important to understand that many of our anxieties, have more to do with our ancestral memories that with our current reality. PISCES reminds us that we are intimately linked to all that, which has existed before us.
On the creative side, Mars in PISCES inspires us to express the irrational, our unlimited imagination, the Ethereal, the needs of our soul and for Cancer and Scorpio, this is a good month, when they will be full of vigor and energy to perform any kind of work that requires great stamina and above all creativity.
The mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and PISCES will be more irritable than normal, especially when others do not understand their own urgencies and needs. But Mars will only make us irritable if the flow of energy with which we are connecting now, is not expressed in its totality. This is a good opportunity to increase physical activity, and risking doing things that normally we won’t do simply because we consider it too much effort.
Sports like swimming with dolphins is a good choice for this transit if you live in a place where this is possible.
Monday 4 Mars connect with Neptune and what a great opportunity to understand those impulses that sometimes make us do things that we later judge in ourselves and repent of. Take advantage of your motives, remember that Saturn is in Scorpio and that this transit remind us that OUR things are those we have earned, with our own efforts. Even so it is a great time for creativity and above all, everything that has to do with photography, films, music, audiovisual, fashion. Let your imagination fly, but keep the soul tied down to your deepest values.
The 8, 9 and 10, Mars will be connecting with Mercury and Chiron in PISCES, and with Jupiter in Gemini, perhaps the time has come to visit that alternative doctor, that chiropractor, you have been thinking of, for the past few months. If you study it is possible that a more holistic understanding will be revealed to you. Listen to your soul and if it hurts, speak about it or write about it, connects with someone who can listen to you and contain you.
15 and 16, it will connect by trine to Saturn and suddenly the intention becomes clearer, more efficiently and we would probably be called to pay debts, to fix situations that we postponed for too long.
26, Just as Venus enters PISCES, Mars connects with Mercury again, but this time with the latter in retrograde motion; we should perhaps review things and decisions we have made in the last few days, we have another opportunity to look and analyze better options.
Mars will be in PISCES until March 11.
Venus in Aquarius, drives us towards what is different, towards the eccentric, the scientific side of things, that, which breaks away from the traditional, to quantum physics, spontaneous, strange thing, and above all subjects where emotions do not reign supreme. Aquarius is too interested in discovering the not so obvious, to waste time analyzing the obvious.
The 10 and 11 Venus will make contact by square to Saturn in Scorpio, time to resolve situations that have to do with ownership, with sexuality, with money and the possessions of others. Unemployment, mortgages, secret sexual desires, none of these have to be negative, is simply another opportunity to understand an innerly denied dimension.
Venus in Aquarius connects from the mental, rather than from the emotional, it falls for the what is challenging and unusual.
Venus in Aquarius can, curiously, be terribly loyal and faithful, if given the space they need to explore and investigate what they consider different and fascinating.
Teamwork benefits from this transit of Venus through the sign of the water bearer and suddenly, we understand that it is more advantageous to operate from a group with which we share ideas, than from the individual. The solo work can be very rewarding, but when efforts are shared, we benefit from the creativity of others and the product can be much more satisfactory. Line dancing is another form of expression of Venus in Aquarius.
A more emotionally detached vision of our situation is possible under Venus in Aquarius, allowing us to see clearer, the point of view of others, for the benefit of all parties involved.
Libra and Gemini are the major beneficiaries of this transit that only lasts 1 month, and those with jobs that involve technology, you will feel more comfortable than usual, doing your work. Games and relationships through the internet, will be the modality of the next few weeks.
Write in your blogs, send emails to all those that you often think of, but never have the time to write to. Contrary to what many preach, communication through the Internet can be very important and rewarding.
Venus enters PISCES on February 25.
