Battle between Mars and Saturn

For the last two days the Moon has been in Scorpio, its sign of debilitation, so feeling despondent, depressed, or otherwise emotional is to have been expected, but it has just entered Sagittarius. This should shift the emotional environment to a more hopeful state. However, it is being aspected by a retrograde Jupiter in Aries, which may cause one to reflect on what one hopes for or what will bring one happiness.

Tomorrow Mars and the Sun will move into Scorpio where they will join Mercury. From Scorpio Mars will aspect Saturn in Aquarius. From Aquarius Saturn will aspect Mars, the Sun, and Mercury in Scorpio. Saturn is also aspecting a retrograde Jupiter in Aries. This means that Saturn is aspecting both of the Mars ruled signs in the chart, Aries and Scorpio. Mars and Saturn are both malefic and enemies. This sets up a conflict between these two forces. Saturn being a planet of boundaries and inertia and Mars being a planet of action and vigor. This will be something like a ram butting its head against a brick wall or an oil slick burning while floating a top of the ocean. This will likely feel unpleasant and very frustrating.

However, as both planets are in their own signs, something positive may come as the result of this conflict. Deep insights, creative breakthroughs, or finally getting results or success in an area where you have been struggling may occur. However, these benefits are likely to come with collateral damage.

As Venus is in Virgo, its sign of debilitation, with Ketu there is likely to be damage done to relationships that could result in them ending. It will be important to control your temper, especially in communications, as Mercury is in Scorpio with Mars and Venus is in Virgo ruled by Mercury.

To understand how these transits affect you an individual analysis is required. The interaction between your natal chart and the transits of the planets is always very individual and personal. Contact me for a reading at .
