Mars Attack – Mars in Aries June 28 to January 06.2021
This year, we have an unusually long transit of Mars in the sign of Aries. Normally, Mars stay 45 days, now it will transit through Aries until January 06.2021, more than 6 months.
Mars is the Ruler of hot and passionate, provocative and risk taking, passionate warrior, fire sign of Aries. Mars is the God of War and here, Mars is at home, with all his enormous energy, love, passion and desire to succeed, advance, push, and win, fight for what he wants. Sometimes, Mars is unpredictable, hot, heated, intense and aggressive. It can be a long and difficult time. If we look on the positive site- Mars can gives us a chance, after a long fighting or negotiations, at the end, to solve the issues we are facing during this 6 months stay in Aries, not without some wounds and scratches on the head.
What an astrologer call “Mars Attack?” When transiting Mars passing over the 4 chart angles: Ascendant, Midheaven (10 house), Descendant (7 house), and IC (4th house), often denotes sudden action taken or sudden activity in these sectors.
When hot-blooded, passionate, and lusty Mars is transiting over the 1st house (Aries), it can denote the beginning of a hot-blooded, passionate, and lusty love affair. Avoid being pushy, dear Aries. Take charge of your life, but don’t bulldoze over others in the process!
When hot-blooded, passionate Mars is transiting over the IC (4th house) in this case for Capricorn – it can brings moving, uncertainty, trouble at home, with parents, roots and the home by itself. You may work hard at making yourself feel more secure, and you may be called upon to take charge on the home and family front.
When hot-blooded, passionate Mars is transiting over the DC (7th house) of partnerships (Libra), Mars can bring hot debates, conflicts, war, separations or end of partnerships, end of hot love affair. The 7 house is the house of partnership and open enemies.
When hot-blooded, passionate Mars is transiting over the MC (10 house of Cancer), it may stimulate our ambition and our desire to be recognized for our accomplishments. Whether it’s professional or personal, we are likely to have an increased desire for others to notice us. This can be a good time to become self-employed or start a business if other factors are favorable. Conflicts with those in authority are possible now.
In Mundane or National Astrology, the SUN in USA chart is found in the 4th House when the Astrological year begun; it is typically favorable year for owners of land or for people with occupations tied to the land.
The Mars transit through the fourth house is dominated by physical activity in the home. Emotional problems could arise, triggered by subconscious memories of past painful experiences. Family problems and disputes may also arise, and this may lead to poor decision. At this time, it is especially important to consider the needs and feelings of other family members.
On the other hand, it is a very favorable period to carry out improvement and construction projects at home. Sometimes, it is better not to share a house with other people. It could be especially difficult to live with your parents now. This transit can also mean property disputes.
Now, with Mars transits IC (4 house) of our country, we may experience some problems in this section. The 4th house represents home and land of the nation.
If we look at the chart, we can see that all actions are in the cardinal signs during July 2020. Sun is in Cancer, Mars in Aries, Mercury Retro in Cancer; Jupiter and Pluto are in Capricorn, then on July second- Saturn returns to Capricorn, as well. These planets in Cardinal (angular signs) are all stubborn and none of them wants to step back and do compromise, now, they are in square, challenging aspects from those three angular houses. What we may experience can be tension and fighting, misunderstanding and miscommunication, as Mercury in sensitive Cancer is very emotional and talk without thinking, based on it is feelings, instead of being rational and using it’s wisdom. Mars in fire Aries sign is aggressive and pushy, Capricorn is stubborn and rigid. Notice that Cardinal signs are leaders and they all want to fight who is going to take the leadership. Mars, a God of War in aggressive and impulsive Aries act without thinking. This is why we call this MARS ATTACK.
We need to be very careful and very clear in placing anger and very targeted in who or what we fight. It is up to us control ourselves and learn how to de-escalate this angry energy on a daily basis. It is up to us to use the powerful energy of Mars sensibly and constructively. Everyone must identify the real enemy. Don’t just fight the wind or the guy who happens to be standing next to you. It is your brother; he is in the same boat as you are! Be compassionate!
What we have to do to transform this enormous energy, how to be constructive and utilize it in the best positive way? There is a hope that this sweeping energy to be castoff for fighting every day’s interactions and each of us have to try to channel it in optimistic way without rushing, pushing and being aggressive, as we know that Aries is a fire enthusiastic sign that like to initiate things and be the first without considering other competitors. If we use the positive, good quality energy of Aries constructively, creatively and tolerantly, we can be truly successful in inspiring these around us to follow their goals and find their freedom, to enlighten and motivate, to have new beginning where love and compassion are the main ingredients. We need to spread love and compassion, to show what we can contribute to unite, instead of breaking and dividing. Let’s help our neighbors or these who need supports and understanding. Let’s improve our relationships, our family ties, be empathetic and try to compromise and negotiate for peace and love, harmony and concord, if we use friendship and kindness, we can contribute and change the energy of the earth, for the good of the humanity. If you initiate a new projects around home and land, be considering, be enthusiastic, but not pushy and impatient, otherwise you may get into heated arguments and misfortune.
The same rule applies for the land of the nation, we may see fighting, confrontations and disputes over the land and property of the country. Fires and other dreadful incidents are possible during Mars stay in Aries, in the 4 house of USA.
I want to scream loudly and encourage everyone to hear my voice: Be respectful, use wisdom instead of impulsiveness, apply nonviolent tactics to solve any issue that may arise during this time. Be loving and caring! Save our land, our peace, and our community! We are one, we are stronger together, use intelligence and wisdom instead of hate! Protect and unite, our land and our folks! Use this great energy to initiate new projects and new foundations that benefits all!
Being more detailed, I want to notice that Mars in Aries will retrograde from September 10 until November 14.2020. We can talk more about it when the time comes.
July 05. 2020, a Lunar eclipse occurs in the sign of Capricorn. Just as new moons are linked to beginnings and full moons are tied to culminations, eclipses serve as celestial checkpoints. An eclipse is a high-octane lunation that helps illuminate our karmic path, but just as these cosmic events can be visually striking, eclipses can also be a bit dramatic. Astrologically speaking, they speed up time: they open new doors by slamming others shut, so we often find abrupt and sudden shifts occurring during eclipses. Though the shifts can be shocking, they can help us by speeding up the inevitable.
So, if you’ve been dragging your feet, an eclipse will be sure to give you that extra push (or shove) needed to take action. While the results can be disturbing, remember that these lunations simply expedite the inevitable — these events were going to happen eventually.
During lunar eclipses, we are encouraged to let go of whatever is no longer serving the soul. This is the time to release, purge, and say goodbye. In 2020, lunar eclipses occur on January 10, June 5, July 5, and November 30. Remember, cosmic warriors, endings are hard, but everything is cyclical: A culmination always occurs on the edge of a beginning.
Even though, there are planets that are opposite and square, we have also a good aspect during the Lunar eclipse. Where Mercury sextile Uranus and the moon trine Uranus, as well, these can bring new exciting opportunities and good luck to some, others may find thrilling news, singles may find new friends or new lover, it is passionate month with a lot of delightful and powerful emotions on personal levels.
Mercury Goes Direct in the sign of Cancer- July 12.2020.
If you have important papers to sign up, wait until July 12, don’t start a new project, don’t schedule a surgery before July 12, as Mercury rules communication, transportation and cars. Mercury rules our brain and doctors. Mercury in sensitive Cancer may stir up family or relationships problem. After Mercury moves Direct, the things get clear and we may find better way to communicate and get to negotiations.
Good luck to all! Be compassionate and spread love wherever you go!
