Mars is coming.
Since the Pluto/Saturn Conjunction in January this year the world has seen already sweeping changes.
The effects are proving to be the catalyst for the impending global societal changes.
June and July are the retrograde months: much needed weeks to catching breath and of internalising and integrating the collectively felt energies of impending global change!
However, many of you probably have a lingering feeling that “this ain’t it”, rather, “this is just the start”.
So far, we’ve seen Pluto, Saturn and Uranus battling it out: stock market crashes and instant recoveries (see my February article), lockdown measures and changes to policies affecting our freedom of movement. As I already mention in my article from December 2019, a re-shuffling of world governance and politics as well as possible conflicts due to shifts in the Status Quo will be the theme of 2020 and beyond. And so as we will slide relatively smoothly through the months of June and July, the next milestone of the global shift is already lurking around the corner…
Starting June 28, Mars (self imposition, conflict, disputes and military action) enters his natural habitat in Aries. Here, Mars will remain until the beginning of January 2021. During the next 6 months, Mars will conjunct and square several ‘inflection points’: Chiron, Lilith (Black Moon), Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto.
Mars does usually move rather quickly, but due to the retrograde motion, he will contact the outer planets 3x times. This is special and quite significant. The last time Mars/r squared Pluto in this configuration was in 1531. This was also the year of the Lisbon Earthquake. (More on this in another post…)
Possible effects – Mars Transit:
First of all: A square (90°) is a challenging aspect that usually shows some conflict, difficulty due to outside events and circumstances. The combination of Jupiter/Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn (the sign of governance, structures, law and status quo) standing in direct “conflict” with Mars (supercharged in Aries), can only be seen as an explosive and unfortunately violent combination of energies.
Expect noticeable conflict between the powers in charge (Saturn/Pluto) directly affecting the populace and individuals alike (Aries). The possibility of further control or hardening lockdown measures due to reemergence of the virus cannot be dismissed. It wouldn’t be surprising if further state controlled measures may be met with increasing resistance from the public. Some kind of military action.
As Jupiter’s expansive energies are also in the mix (forming conjunctions to Pluto and Saturn), I’d assume any occurrences also being connected to an ‘ideological power struggle’. Looking at the current developments in the USA and its horoscope (USA’s having a Pluto return as well as the looming presidential election), it wouldn’t be far fetched to imagine further upheaval. A spill over effect to other countries, possibly western Europe and parts of Asia could be on the cards.
Mars was traditionally seen as the Guardian of the Land and Farming. I wouldn’t be surprised if there’d be conflict due to food shortages or food supply chains being negatively affected.
