Hi, Everyone, Now is the time that many of us have been waiting for all year. Mars, the planet of war, action, and passion, stationed retrograde on September 9, 2020 at 28 degrees of the Cardinal Fire sign of Aries and stations direct on November 13, 2020 at 15 degrees of Aries. Mars retrogrades once every two years for approximately two months. It makes things more difficult to proceed ahead. This rings to be even more true when Mars is in its rulership in Aries.
The Mars energy has been potent since the beginning of August when Mars began to fight with all of the transiting planets in Capricorn sequentially. Mars represents unbridled passion, energy, and courage. When Mars is held back, it becomes more difficult to tap into the optimism, bravery, and self belief that you can get things done in a time of such limitations.
These next few weeks really shine a light on what 2020 has been all about thus far. Saturn, the planet of structures, stationed direct on September 29, 2020 at 1:11 am EDT. We feel the buildup five days before and five days after. This has been the year of the unforgettable Capricorn lineup that has forced us all to restructure our lives. Saturn is the ruler of the show, as it rules the Cardinal earth sign of Capricorn.
Saturn had a legendary and unforgettable meetup with Pluto, the cosmic compost, on January 12, 2020 at 22 degrees of the Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn. There are certain degrees that correspond to the world axis: 0 and 22 degees of the Cardinal signs, which are are Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn; 15 degrees of the Fixed signs, which are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius; 7 degrees of the mutable signs, which are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Whenever outer planets make big aspects at these degrees, people on the world stage and in power get influenced, but it impacts every one of us. The two malefics — Saturn and Pluto met up at the world stage at 22 degrees of the Cardinal earth sign of Capricorn and caused cardinal change and renovation worldwide.
Saturn and Pluto meet up every thirty-four to thirty-six years; but, the two malefics had not met up in Capricorn for over five hundred years. This has brought irreversible change, collapsing of old paradigms, rebuilding, and rebirth. Mars is a big player now, as he is clashing with all of the planets in restrictive Capricorn. Mars has been fighting with Saturn since August 24th and makes another attack directly on September 29th at 5:05 pm EDT when Mars makes an exact square to Saturn at 25 degrees of Aries and Capricorn. Energy is blocked. The wheels are spinning, but you are going nowhere. This feels impossible, but you have choices. You have agency. Saturn teaches you to fight within the adversity and build character in the process.
Mars sets off Saturn, and people will be much more triggered and searching for a fight. It can dig up inverted anger, depression, apathy, and a sense of resignation. Use this limiting energy to lead you to choices that define and expand you — even if that is not the immediate effect. We are almost done with the Epoch of Capricorn. Make the most of Saturn’s karma around commitment. Commit to that which helps elevate you in your quest to succeed and survive. Look in the mirror and hold yourself accountable as to what you can do in these trying times. Saturn expects no less of you. Pluto, the planet of death, rebirth, power, other people’s money, debt, and transformation, stations direct on October 4, 2020 at 22 degrees of Capricorn and directly sets off the Saturn/Pluto conjunction that took place on 1/12/20. Pluto rules the sign of Scorpio. A lot more information and stories will be uncovered in the world news and in our own lives as to what we have all been working with since the second week of January.
Mercury, the planet of information, recently entered Scorpio on September 27, where he will tour through December 1, 2020. Mercury retrogrades on October 13, 2020 at 11 degrees of Scorpio and stations direct on November 3, 2020 at 25 degrees of Libra. Mercury exits Scorpio altogether on December 1, 2020. This retrograde mirrors when Venus retrograded in Scorpio on October 5, 2018 at 10 degrees and 50 minutes of Scorpio and stationed direct on November 17, 2018 at 25 degrees of Libra.
Mercury is at its most perceptive while in the fixed water sign of Scorpio. Scorpio is the sign of sexuality, intimacy, secrets, death, debt, taxes, mortgages, loans and unblocked wounds. This Mercury retrograde will reveal lot of secrets while in Scorpio, and it will bring up more information from what you were dealing with in the fall of 2018. Pluto rules the fixed water sign of Scorpio, and it stations direct at the world axis in early October. Although, we are feeling that buildup as Saturn stations direct today.
These two planets have changed the world and the decade. They also station direct five days apart. Saturn was last at 25 degrees of Capricorn in beginning of February, and Pluto was last at 22 degrees of Capricorn in January. Pluto will transit in Capricorn on and off until 2020; however, Saturn and Jupiter have less than three months remaining in the Capricorn penitentiary. More stories will come out from those time periods as to how we can anchor our goals and security before Saturn and Jupiter exit Capricorn on December 17th and December 20th of this year.
Saturn and Pluto are going to make themselves known in the next few weeks. Mars and Pluto have a big cosmic battle on October 9, 2020 when they square one another directly at the world axis at 22 degrees of Aries and Capricorn respectively. Mars in combat with Pluto is an aspect of war, as Pluto is the higher octave of Mars. Both rule the sign of Scorpio. Expect the energy to be incredibly tense and intense in the next ten days.
To say that this will be easy would be misguiding. Tempers will flare, logic will take a backseat, and words could become lethal. Saturn represents reality, and a lot of wakeup calls will take place in the next few weeks. A lot of endings, and a lot more hidden information will be revealed on the world stage and in your own life. Be mindful of this energy. Work out, eat well, meditate, and lay low. Stand for a cause but don’t look for a fight. You won’t have to with this lineup in the sky.
