A Quick Word on The Pioneer….

Mars enters Sagittarius

Our Pioneer has set the stage for Mercury and Saturn since 23 August, and now brings motivation and drive to where The Archer aims within the life throughout 16 November. Desires become impulsive here and endurance and stability must be cultivated in order to reap the rewards of finding the spontaneous energy that is meant to be mobilized. While frank, self-righteous and even at times defiant attitudes may be displayed, be sure to respond with optimism, enthusiasm, and aspiration to curtail the ego’s argumentative reactions. When speculative, exploratory, inspired, and swift methods are utilized to combat conflict here, this free-will’s response of courage is highly rewarded.

As we see such a penetrating planet as Mars journeying within the realms of the Mutable Fire Sign Sagittarius, you definitely want to check in with your personal piece of the Zodiac Pie to know where to expect actions to come at you that may need that necessary response of patience. Even though our Archer is a truly “happy sign,” when Mars is present within this area of the life, let’s just say the tendency to stimulate anger issues and unconsidered slapdash reactions are all too easy to surface. Tongues are caught more often than not in instantaneous blunt retorts, which may result in the tasting of the foot as well. (should make for a swell remainder of the USA’s debate season, don’t you think?) As always with Mars, rising up in COURAGE to CURE OUR EGO and CAGE OUR RAGE is the key to claiming our victory.

Mars -aside from his courage and fighting spirit- equally sees over sudden changes and endings within the life, so be sure to recognize what may be looking for release or brought to conclusions here. All kinds of momentous energies are on high alert. As Mars recently set the props in place for this historical time Scorpio, now he also will be giving you clues as to what is coming up to ponder in review under the next Mercury Retrograde passage beginning 06 November, (even more fun for the USA’s politician as this is also Election Day, can we say REcounts anyone?). Mars will reach 04 degrees within The Archer by 13 October, which is the very degree point our Messenger begins his journey of reflection upon.

As always, a little “quick guide” from above via the collective feel to take a peak down here below, as to where you can expect to experience Mars getting things sparked up and motivating while he visits with Sagittarius. Remember if you know your natal chart, read for your Rising Sign as well for more personal advice. Knowing the early degree points of the upcoming Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius, it is best to consult a professional astrologer to see how this sensitive passage will be precisely affecting you.

Our pioneering planet pushes forward into the most esoteric sign in the Zodiac, wherein any and all mysteries eventually come out of hiding to be solved. This transit of Mars through 06 October paves the way for Saturn, who will enter this transformational stage the day before. The energy that will be turned up as Mars brings his motivational and take action potentials within The Eagle- sets the tone for how Saturn will come in and patiently work with the entire theme of death and rebirth throughout 2014.

When Mars visits with Scorpio, it is essential to focus upon the power to relax. This choice of free-will brings forth the thoroughness necessary to look in your Zodiac Pie to see where extremely perceptive, passionate, and compelling desires will begin to dedicate themselves within this area of the life. Unresolved issues will find a probing and persistent attitude to dissect situations, as profound truths are brought into the light of day.

Wherever Mars journeys in our Zodiac sky above, we can expect the dynamic energy of courage, action, momentum, and conclusions to unfold down here below within that area of the life during his passage. Below is a “quick guide” that points from the collective perspective where now in Scorpio, our Pioneering planet will drive through with some important changes.

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.
