Mars, Triple Conjunction & Uranus ~ Aug. 13-18, 2009

Mars with Moons, Phobos and Deimos by xXxDark-RavenxXx.deviantart.comLast month, before leaving the zodiac sign of Gemini, Venus blessed us with her alignments to the Triple Conjunction and Uranus. This month, from August 13 to 18, Mars in Gemini recreates the same exact connections. Perhaps, he is picking up where Venus left off. What does this mean for us earthlings? How does this differ with Venus' alignments last month?

While Venus' energy is receptive, Mars is assertive. He goes out there and gets things done! How he does it depends on the zodiac sign he is transiting -- in Aries, his actions are bold and aggressive; in Taurus, his steps are measured and persistent; but in Gemini, he is quick to act and a natural multi-tasker. Imagine all that he can accomplished these next few days! One caveat, however, Mars in Gemini is eager but can be a little lacking in focus. But now that we're armed with that knowledge, we can make sure to enlist Mercury (mind) and Saturn (duties), who are both in Virgo (planner) with their conjunction (blending of energies) steadily growing stronger, to aid in giving Gemini-Mars the explicit instructions he'll need to execute intelligent and productive actions.

The timeline (all dates reflect Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):

  • August 13 ~ For most of the day, the Taurus-Moon (stable inner drives) links with Mercury (mind), Saturn (work), and the triple conjunction while Mars (action) gets friendly with Jupiter (ideals). With our emotional responses grounded (Taurus-Moon) to match our organized mind (Virgo-Mercury), our actions can be more deliberate (Virgo-Saturn) as we take advantage of what can be possible (triple conjunction).
  • August 14 ~ Today, Mars' link to Jupiter remains a strong influence, continuing to give us a spring in our step and hopefulness in our movements. The Leo-Sun (conscious will) seeks balance with the energies of Jupiter. Do we continue to believe as we faithfully put ourselves out there? But how can we not continue to move forward when we've already tackled obstacles that resulted in our having taken the first steps?
  • August 15 ~ With Mercury & Saturn still growing closer, the obstacles before us may be all too real and keeping hope alive may be more challenging. As Mars link up with Chiron (wounds/healing), we are able to find the release (Chiron) we sorely need which allows us to regain our motivation (Mars); and by the end of the evening, the Gemini-Moon unites with Mars, reminding us of our innermost desires (Moon) and why we must act to fulfill them (Mars).
  • August 16 to 17 ~ Mars aligns with Neptune (enlightenment) while the Leo-Sun opposes Chiron and Neptune. With the Leo-Sun struggling to seek balance with Chiron and Neptune, cling to Mercury and Saturn in analytical and practical Virgo to gain stability in our thinking and planning, as Mercury and Saturn finally perfect their union. Keep a look out for Mercury upsetting Jupiter, however, and remain true to aspirations. Make wise (Neptune) choices (Mars).
  • August 18 ~ Finally, Mars makes his last alignment in Gemini, before entering Cancer -- a hard link to Uranus (radical change/unconventional). With the Leo-Sun continuing to oppose Neptune and is now also upsetting Uranus, while Jupiter and Saturn antagonize one another, this may prove to be a day of impulsiveness and irrational decisions/actions. Expect the unexpected. Willfully embrace (Sun) and act (Mars) in the spirit of learning (Gemini) or awakening (Aquarius/Uranus) instead of fear of loss (Saturn) or of the unknown (Neptune).

Although we all benefit from the celestial alignments between Mars and Jupiter/Chiron/Neptune/Uranus, those with natal planets/house angles at 23-26 degrees of fixed signs (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, Scorpio) or air signs (Aquarius, Libra, Gemini) may be influenced more strongly than others.

Unsure if you have natal planets/house angles at 23-26 degrees? Cast your own birth chart if you don't already have one -- birth date, time, and place required. Or request a quote for a personalized reading. (both links open a new window)
