EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN AQUARIUS
Looking ahead on the month we have to start thinking about Mars in Aquarius starting next week. Aquarius is an idealistic sign connected with humanitarian ideals, scientific discovery and is also a very spiritual sign and also one where the demons of the past come up to be healed. It is one of the more troubling signs of the zodiac as it is co-ruled by Saturn and Rahu who can give it incredible technological inventive skills but also radical politics. Given the atmosphere in the US going into Midterms, we have to think if things do not go the right way for Democratic pollsters, people will take to the streets again.
The first few days of Mars in Aquarius (November 6-9), may require us to take more rest. After the extra energy of Capricorn and the exact exaltation of Mars, there is a sudden chasm as Mars is not sure exactly where he is as he enters a new sign and is bit more tired and getting his bearings. Do the frog pose and rest more to get through the transition.
Aquarius is an air sign dominated by the Vata or air element and it can activate Mars to solve problems quickly, but it also can create quick waves of anger that are quickly forgotten and create love of adventure and promote solutions with engineering. So, use this energy to create great positive social change, invent new technological wonders but go slowly as to not activate too much reckless energy.
Mars in Shatabhishak Nov. 17-Dec. 7th (Aquarius 6.40-20.00) is ruled by Rahu and I always find this connection troubling as it can create impulsive action and in Aquarius strong and passionate action for humanitarian causes. This constellation is Satvic and connected to healing so it may promote those energies so often this goes well is energy is directed properly.
The transit is not without affliction as Mars gets a 60-degree aspect from Saturn into November 28th with a few weeks degree if influence November 23 – December 3rd. If you did not have enough of the Mars/Saturn conjunction earlier in the year when Mars was with Saturn in Sagittarius with its frustration and pent up anger, then you get a revisit with this transit. The better part of the transit is from December 8 – 23rd when Mars transits into Jupiter’s constellation of Purva Bhadrapada (Aquarius 20-Pisces 3.20) which gets connected to Jupiter but this funky constellation can bring up dark psychological energies and desires.
For Scorpio rising, this is a 4th house transit so family matters could be tested, which also includes your relationship with hour partner. Be patient. Stay on top of your insurance policies and make sure they are up-to-date. Frustration will be high and patience low so find a way to release pent up anger. The second part of the transit in December may be a good time to work on your house, refinance, spend more quality time with your family and consider a new car.
For Aries rising, this is an 11th house transit. The first part of the transit until December 8th may create problems with older siblings and avoid giving loans to friends or family members during this time. Watch out for get-rich-quick schemes and avoid overspending, as you will need to save money for expenditures when Mars goes into the 12th house of Pisces. December is better and cash flow should pick and it is a good time to make new friends and fulfill some desire that you have had for a while. Your older sibling may surprise you in a helpful and unexpected way.
Mars transits are good 3, 6, 10th and 11th from the rising or moon sign so Sagittarius, Libra, Taurus and Aries rising or moon signs will benefit most if there are no afflicted natal malefics in Aquarius like Ketu, Saturn or Rahu and Ashtakavarga points for Mars in Aquarius are 4 points or over. Consult a professional astrologer for my guidance.
Note: Peoples charts and transits are very individual and we write general articles that maybe useful to all our readers. In reality, Vedic astrology is very much like reading very specific strands of DNA.
