Mars moves into the constellation of Satabhisha (Aquarius 6.40-20.00) in Aquarius on Nov. 17th and stays there until Dec. 7th. Aquarius is an air sign dominated by the Vata element and owned by Saturn and Rahu  and it can activate Mars to solve problems quickly but it also can  create quick waves of anger. On   the positive side it can create love of adventure and promoting  solutions with engineering, computer technology and bio-medicine.

Mars in this constellation will receive an exact aspect from Saturn on Nov. 27th with a 3 degree orb of influence Nov. 21- Dec. 2nd and with Mars in a Saturn sign and Mars being aspected by Saturn we can have a lot of anger, frustration and delays happening in moving forward. Mars is not aspecting Saturn so it is not as bad a conjunction or opposition between the two but it is still a strong influence.

The  constellation of Satabhishak, is a  highly philosophical, socially active and humanitarian in its nature. It forces us to breakdown all boundaries of race, age, status, nationality and religion and usher in a feeling of oneness with humanity.   Liberals will rejoice in this value but it is spurring  a deep polarization in the world as the more conservative Saturn aspecting Mars  here will create tension. Given the conflict between Saturn and conservationism and nationalism and the liberal energy of Satabhishak we will probably see more anger flare-ups and conflicts.  Stay out of the political anger. It robs your peace of mind and is much bigger than anything we can control and that is frustrating but save your self and help others rather than rail against things you cannot change. You can use the Mars energy to do service work and help people around Thanksgiving  and donate to those in need and that is a way to transform the political anger”

The constellation of Satabhisha is about reconciling the conflicts of life. We will see even more tension pop up the next 3-4 week between   liberals and conservatives, between the fight for global warming and now the opposing science of the lack of sunspots this year leading to global cooling.   Aquarius requires us to come together and resolve the conflicts of our world and different opinions but Mars/Saturn connections will stir the pot of anger, frustration and tension regarding these issues.  We have to draw on the healing energy of Varuna, the deity of the constellation to reconcile the conflicts of our world and reach out with humanitarian energy rather than with conflict and protest.

My friend Juliana Swanson of Astral Harmony talking about the influence of  Saturn on Mars mutually on each other a few years noted the following:  (Note: the influence is still very strong with Mars in Saturn’s sign and Saturn in Mula Nakshatra governed by Ketu which acts like Mars.)

” With Mars and Saturn influencing each other like this, the tamo-guna is enhanced, which can come across as irritated, stubborn, rigid, stuck or depressive. Two of the best ways to work with this energy are deep massage and aerobic exercise, both of which will help clear and renew our life force when tamas is too high. Another important consideration for this Mars-Saturn exchange is that our adrenal and immune systems may need more attention than usual. This is because these systems are connected to the Muladhara or base chakra  (Saturn) and Manipura (Mars) chakras or solar plexus, our earth and fire energy centers.”

So find ways to calm Mars and anger with pitta pacifying diets like coconut water and less spicy food and chili peppers and turn off the TV news as it will just make you more angry. This too will pass. Get more exercise to release tensions and boost your immune system to stay healthy.

What fellow astrologers are saying about last year’s edition:

“This almanac is truly a masterpiece and labor of love. Barry is a gifted astrologer and writer. I have written yearly forecasts for over 30 years and understand the work, knowledge and dedication involved. It is so complete with everything a beginner or advanced student of astrology would need. The references to the planet’s transit through the signs, nakshatras, aspects, dates and times, plus their interpretations is fantastic. He even covers the effects these will have on individual countries. I am sure I will be referring to this manual frequently throughout the year.”

What critics are saying:  “Barry’ Poetic Tour de Force unveils lays of psychological wisdom that heals the troubled soul.–Jamie Bateman

The book is accessible for people who do not know much about astrology and is meant for a larger audience and only small parts of it are technical .


The deepest purpose of astrology should allow us to see the Maya or illusion that runs through our mind and blocks us from seeing our own Divinity. Astrology should reveal our hidden patterns and not just affirm what we know about our self already. It is our hidden patterns and blind spots which get us into the most trouble and cause us the most suffering. It takes courage to look at them, bring them into the light and transforms them but that is why we are on the planet. It is much like Bill Murray in Ground Hog Day (1993). How many times do we have to repeat our lives and relive our pain or do we realize our flaws and actively work on them and transform ourselves into a more conscious and active and loving and compassionate person. In this brilliant collection of essays divided into 7 sections, Psychological and Emotional and Spiritual Dimensions of Vedic Astrology, Secrets of the Houses, Blind Spots. Spiritual Astrology, Relationship and Techniques, Barry reveals material beyond the ordinary in unveiling our True Self beyond the illusion.    The great spiritual teacher Yogananda was fond of saying that  most of what we call the spiritual battle is really a psychological battle and once that battle is won, the spiritual battle is a short one.  This book aims to support you in deep spiritual growth with profound psychological insight.

Barry’s spiritual and psychological approach to astrology seeks to cut the puppet strings of the planets that impact our emotions and psychology and bind us to self-blame, doubt and fear, and anger.  This useful guide will help you navigate your life.
