Regeneration & Change: Mars goes Direct 13 April

Mars goes Direct

03 Degrees Virgo
13 April
11:53pm EDT
You probably are reading this, planetary follower and letting out a BIG YAHOO!!!! Most people in awareness of our Pioneer planet being Retrograde since 23 January -requesting us to Stand in Our Courage– are more than ready to see Direct Motion return to the celestial body from above that motivates and shakes our worlds up with direct action down here below.

Aside from the promise that action will be able to move forward ultimately from where 03 degrees Virgo rests in your Zodiac Pie, the recent requests of Mars for review equally hope you have now arrived at definite conclusions about the necessary changes that are meant to unfold after this seemingly ridiculously long passage of reflection.  Albeit, wouldn’t you know, our calendar date that just catches our Pioneer returning Direct Motion is in full and equal agreement to let it all go.

13 April 2012, numerically, by both the Karmic Path date (13) and Universal date energy (4 + 1 + 3 + 2 + 0 + 1 + 2 = 13), both grant us the understanding of the 13’s ‘Regeneration and Change.’ A sort of cosmic “double whammy” of really noting what the Chaldeans saw this more often than not “feared” number, and please do cast off yours about it falling on a Friday this year, btw. (simply a silly superstition) If one is to truly embrace the magnificence of the 13, there is such profound insight to behold:

“13 is not an unlucky number, as many people believe. The ancients claimed that “he who understands how to use the number 13 will be given power and dominion.” The symbol of the 13 is a skeleton, or death, with a scythe, reaping down men in a field of new-grown grass, where young faces and heads appear to be thrusting through the ground and emerging on all sides. 13 is a number of upheaval, so that new ground may be broken. It’s associated with power, which, if used for selfish purposes, will bring destruction upon itself. There is a warning of the unknown and the unexpected. Adapting to change gracefully will bring out the strength of the 13 vibration, and decrease any potential for the negative. 13 is associated with genius- also with explorers, breaking the orthodox and new discoveries of all kinds.”

Now, with any 4 vibration, (1 + 3 = 4) we also know that Uranus is involved in the planetary mix. Hence the warning about the unknown and the unexpected, something this planet is all too famous for bringing to us to experience down here below. So, whatever unfolds upon 13 April 2012, you can be sure there are some surprises not even the best psychic could predict. Uranus just ain’t a fan of pre-telling how it will all fall out. Prophetic about the energy yes, details no.

So, as Mars will go Direct quite late in the day 13 April, take up with that same old courage you’ve been relying on since the end of January within this area of your Zodiac Pie. Remember too, Mars, like Mercury when coming off Retrograde, is going slllloooow,  otherwise known as the station. Mars doesn’t reach 04 degrees Virgo until 21 April. Once he gets going, he’ll be back to his usual 2-3 day passes through one degree, not to finish up the shadow of this recent Retrograde until 19 June- finally moving into Libra 03 July, concluding his extra long stay Virgo since 10 November 2011.

Happy Regenerating, Change and Motivations to You Dear Stars.

A Quick Word on The Pioneer….

Mars enters Virgo
10 November
11:15pm EST

Are you ready for some action where The Virgin is of service within your Zodiac Pie? You will now be seeing quite a bit of activity in this area of the life. What makes this passage a bit different that any regular Mars transit which normally last about 7 weeks, is that, our motivating planet will not leave this sign until 03 July 2012.

Remember all the collective changes that unfolded from Saturn’s visit here in 2007 throughout the fall of 2010? It’s time for Mars with his penetrating energy to make things truly take up with dynamic activity that will bring more conclusions to the situations Saturn requested we pay closer attention to over this period. Knowing the economic implications and realizations that drummed up alone- if you thought this time has passed and was never to return, think again. There are a many completions and endings to what we know and are comfortable with that still await to unravel.

Why will Mars be journeying so long with The Virgin? As he reaches the 23rd degree of Virgo, upon 23 January 2012, we’ll then be witnessing another Mars Retrograde that will last until 13 April 2012 at 03 degrees Virgo. The last time we saw Mars not looking where he was going was back over the Winter of 2010.

So here we are, as we turn into the “infamous 2012” date upon the upcoming Universal New Year, with Mars asking for our further examination of those details within our lives as he takes up time within the sign that loves to audit, discriminate and fuss about everything. Being Virgo is the sign that equally loves to be well-mannered and of service, when this focus is chosen, the rewards of this passage are all the more easily found.

Mars is known as the warrior planet, and wherever he is within the Zodiac sky, we are wise to apply patience to this area of the life down here below. Mars also brings forth conclusions and finalizations, so these too, can be more than expected. So, while in Virgo, tests will be placed here to see how well one handles situations of conflict. As always, responding with courage verses reacting in aggressive action will bring calm to what is meant to change in this area of the life.

There is a collective calling to apply disciplined energy to all that Mars logically will select for us to bring more efficiency and practicality to within our methods of desire. One thing that will be strongly felt over this passage is the request for simplification and further organization of what Saturn already requested we take responsible note of here from 2007 to 2010.

So, what about you? Just where will you see this intense passage bring inevitable change to your life? A quick guide from the collective vantage point will show one affect from this longer than normal Mars transit. Remember too, if you know your Ascendant (Rising sign) this too will apply to your natal chart. However, it is always the professional analysis of your natal chart that will exactly determine how any current transit is personally requesting your attention to better know thyself.

More to come on the 23 January on how to ideally handle Mars Retrograde in Virgo 2012. In the meantime, take extra pause where Virgo politely requests you to slow down, and listen to what wishes to become more motivated here. With any activity from Mars, if we don’t take that time to be silent, we will miss tremendous opportunity to reap the proper changes within our lives, which will be urged to unfold quickly. Namaste, Dear Ones.
