In this blog post, I want to discuss a couple of astrological issues I normally do not have time to cover, yet I have been pondering their meaning lately.
After 25 years of doing astrological readings, I do not think we pay enough attention to the transits of the inner planets. Not enough, at all!
Well frankly they are less glamorous. Transits of the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) last for long periods of time and tend to be rather noticeable in the outer world. For example, we currently have an ongoing outer planet transit of Uranus in Aries in square to Pluto in Capricorn. The financial markets have collapsed, the economy has been shaken, and riots and protests between the upper and lower classes have erupted around the world. Whereas, transits of the inner planets tend to affect our personal lives, our moods, and our day to day interaction with others. Additionally, transits of the inner planets happen very quickly, so we tend to pay little attention to their movements.
The second issue I want to discuss is the flow of aspects that occur throughout the year. The moon traverses the zodiac making aspects to all the planets once a month; the Sun, Mercury, and Venus transit the horoscope once a year; and Mars transits occur once every two years. However, despite planetary consistency, the planets create their aspect patterns in different signs and retrograde in different locations. So, the inner planets bring forth themes and patterns to the surface at different times creating a unique experience for all of us. Further, if these astrological events triggers planets or significance points in your chart, the themes will be amplified.
This brings me to the latest aspect of Mercury in Aquarius in trine to Mars in Libra. On January 16, Venus in Capricorn square Mars in Libra which brought to the surface a lot of hidden problems in relationships. This was followed by the insightful aspect of Mercury sextile Uranus. Mercury – Uranus aspects always bring forth new answers to resolve old problems. Now, the trend continues with Mercury trine Mars.
One of the keywords that you can use for Mars is the word ‘action’. Mars likes movement and lots of it. He really does not care about what you are doing right now, he cares about what you are going to do in the future. Alternately, Mercury has to do with the mind and our mental processes. The winged god is how we understand life and put that understanding to use by formulate concepts and ideas. When you combine these two archetypal functions together it creates a golden opportunity for us to do all difficult thinking work that we need to do. Further, if it’s a complex situation, Mars provides you with the ability to accomplish things you might normally shriek at.
So, think back to the issues that came up during the Venus – Mars square, and any insight you may have received on how to resolve it. Now, is action time! It’s a great day for you to speak your mind with clarity, and for you to express what you need to express at this time. Your confidence will be increased and you if you respond accordingly, you will find yourself BOLDER than ever.
