EYE ON THE SKY: MARS SQUARE URANUS
While Uranus is not considered much in traditional Vedic astrology, I find it important. It is a bit like Rahu and very connected to Aquarius and the co-owner of Virgo and has a very inventive and eccentric nature. Dennis Harness, discussing it says:
Prajapati is the lord of progeny and creativity. He “exerts his heat and duplicates himself” and his “divine voice sounds like thunder”. One of the translations of Prajapati is Indra, the lord of thunder and lightening. A similarity to the planet Uranus can easily be seen. Uranus represents the Prometheus myth of bringing fire to earth, the bringer of change and innovation. Uranus is often associated with heat, lightening and thunder. He was also the father of Venus, the goddess of creativity. Narendra Desai felt that Uranus was a higher octave of Mercury, the god of creative intellect. He said that a prominent Uranus was often seen in the chart of a good astrologer.
Uranus is currently in Aries and Mars in Capricorn and 2 degree aspect is usually considered powerful so the impact will be in effect until the end of the week. Mars is very strong in its exalted state can cause explosive energy. Often earthquake and volcanic activity will be a signature of this aspect so not good news for the Big Island of Hawaii and something else can develop.
If you have natal planets in the 4-8 degree range of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra and you are running a Mars period you might be most impacted by this aspect but you would also need a Mars/Uranus signature in your natal chart.
In terms of psychology, Aries an Scorpio rising and Capricorn rising will be most impacted by unexpected encounters that generate excitement for personal growth and a need to break away from normal routines. You may find the courage to breakout and do something new and exciting. This may lead to a feeling of being more alive and courageous. So a time to breakout out and do something new . Drive carefully and watch out for the other guy.
Mars/Uranus aspects still always concern me around unexpected accidents or fires and the Mars/Mercury square is still strong today between Capricorn and Aries. So be careful out there. I have seen too may reckless drivers out there this past week.
