Mars opposite Saturn. Mars in Leo fire sign it’s OK in this sign because it has a similar feel. Same triplicity as ruling sign, Mars in Leo encourages us to shine in our life, it is a driving force to accomplish and be creative, however it can also be quite assertive if provoked. Mars is opposite to Saturn on July 1st (and we are feeling it already). One potential is we are likely to encounter problems with other people and they with us.
These two malefic planets engaging with each other in this opposition can be very irritating and hurtful. We can feel conflict and even anger rise within us, or others will bring unanswered anger and conflict to our attention.
It is not recommended that you pick a fight at this time. If you have something you need to work out maybe wait till later after the New Moon before addressing issues head on.
Back on March 31, 2020 when Mars and Saturn were conjunct there was most likely something that had begun that is now coming to full fruition. Watch for a similar subject matter, it may not be the same characters, but the story line will be the same. This is similar to working with the Monthly Lunar cycle New Moon to Full Moon, every planet has a cycle with other planets.
Open your journal/calendars up and see what was happening at that time in March 2020. Over the last 15 months it has been building and culminating to now, to a completion of sorts.
Maybe a project needs your full attention or a relationship that you have been engaged in since then is now coming full circle. Whatever this is stop and take a look at that time period to see what was happening for you.
There is more, we also have Mars coming in to make a square aspect to Uranus a few days later. They are already within speaking range and will peak on July 3rd. This may represent the need to push away from Saturnian restraints and boundaries. Saturn and Uranus are also at a 90 degree angle to each other. We can feel restless and impulsive and also energized and wanting things to change and to break free from old ways.
How we use these energies is up to us. If it happens to you, then you get to choose how to respond, if you have something building up inside you get to choose how to act.
Maybe you are ready for a big change and these transits, however uncomfortable they may feel is the motivation you need.
Will we be super productive during this time or full of anger and rebelliousness? Choose what is best for you.
Later next week sweet and gentle Venus will make these same aspects to Saturn and Uranus and then catch up with Mars. July 6 – 8 – 13.
I will talk more about that and Mars on my membership platform Patreon. Please join us there for live and recorded conversations about everything Astrology and more.
