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.
