MARS IN PISCES ANDROMEDA DEC. 28-JAN 16TH
Mars went into his friend’s house, Pisces, on Dec. 23rd and stays there for about 6 weeks. Mars goes into Saturn’s constellation of Uttarabhadrapada (Pisces 3.20-16.40) on Dec. 28th and it comprises two bright stars in Pegasus and Andromeda. Mars is a less afflicted than it has been in Aquarius but it will still be channeling Saturn’s energy until Jan 16th and because Saturn is moving toward conjunction with the Sun into Jan. 2nd and is combust until Jan. 18th, the association is not great and can lead to frustration and bubbling anger. Luckily the exchange of houses between Scorpio and Pisces will calm things down.
The constellation of Uttarbhadrapada which begins Dec. 28th means “lucky feet and is connected to the funeral cot which denotes the exit from world and becomes connected with the wisdom of the 12th sign of the zodiac and its connection to Moksha or liberation but also to sleep. The deity of this constellation is Ahir Bhudhanya, which translates to the “serpent of the depths” and is a fertility deity but also a kind of monster from the sea much like Neptune and is connected to the underworld. Connected to Shiv, it destroys ignorance to prepare us to dissolve.
The energy of this constellation is that of the wise old man and it is connected to the planet Saturn and it never acts hastily but with Saturn weak in transit, we wonder if its more anxious nature will come out and create more anxiety and indecision with Mars in transit through there until Jan 17th. Still it carries the influence of Jupiter and has a calming and serene and compassionate nature that will calm Mars’ fire.
The constellation is connected to responsibility but will it have trouble since Saturn is having trouble in transit. Still this constellation is usually fortunate for making and handling money-which is not always something that we connect with Pisces. On an esoteric level, it is connected to the crown chakra and represents the end of the journey of the kundalini energy moving toward liberation so one would think that it will promote meditation and calm Mars’ restless fire.
Mars transit through here can bring up courage to swing in the volatile waters of turbulent emotions and given Saturn moving closer to the Sun and creating tensions with authority, this probably best describes what lies ahead. Will anger erupt from the Martian volcano or will the wisdom of Jupiter guide it through the trouble waters? I suspect that this transit will be easier after Jan. 17th as Mars gets connected to Revati and closer to an aspect from Jupiter into late January on the 25th.
Special thanks to Komilla Sutton and Prash Trivedi for their wisdom on the constellations.

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.”
