MARS IN ARIES: FEB. 5-March 22nd, 2019
Mars moves into its own sign of Aries Feb. 5th and this is generally always good for planets to be in their own signs, even if they are malefics. The more potent qualities of Mars will come forth including power, pushing through obstacles, getting things done quickly, success and joy in sports, independence, generosity for pure-hearted action, and innovation. There can be a tendency toward sudden and impulsive change to view your actions with good judgment and good care. I love this picture of the monk holding the tiger as it embodies the spiritual quality of Mars in the constellation of Ashwini, but also the power and ferocity of the tiger to get into battle and conquer. If you are Aries/Cancer/Libra or Capricorn, Mars will form a Ruchaka Yoga creating great power and success in activity.
The transit is unafflicted making it very powerful for Aries rising bringing great creativity, energy and ambition. Mars moving into Aries is like being shot out of a canon with extra energy to go forth and do great activity. Aries is the 1st sign of the zodiac and it has self-starting energy, so it will be a good time to start new projects. The only dark spot is Mars conjunct Uranus into Feb. 13th which may be felt Feb. 11-15th and we may see earthquakes and unexpected explosions and accident. People in Mars Periods with key planets close to 5 degrees Aries particularly if your natal Mars is there have to be careful driving and Taurus and Libra rising may be most vulnerable to accidents if your dasha indicates. Drive carefully and most people will not have to worry.
Mars will be in the constellation of Ashwini (Aries 0-13.20) Feb. 6-Feb 25th which is known in modern astronomy as Alpha-Arietes and Beta-Arietes, known as Two Stars, the Two Horses, near the bright star of Andromeda between March 2-April 1st. The symbol for Ashwini is a horse’s head representing a dauntless spirit of adventure and a head-strong nature. This transit usually fosters self-starters and energy to complete projects. It is also a very healing constellation and so there will be more energy for aimed towards health. The ruling deities are the Ashwini twins who ride in a golden chariot and shower healing energy down to the earth plane. They are the “Physicians of the Gods.” This is a nakshatra of initiation, revitalization and transformational healing. The ruling planet is Ketu (South Node of the Moon), which gives a mystical and mysterious bent to their life journey.
The first part of the transit is through Aries 0-3 degrees (Feb. 6-10th) and particularly between 0.00-0.48 on Feb. 6-7th is through the gandanta or karmic knot. There is underlying strength to work out new beginnings in a new cycle of growth initiated by moving into the start of the zodiac. The energy is there to untie deep karmic knots but frustrations will still come up strongly and given all the changes going on from the first week of March, there will be plenty to work on and heal.
The ruling constellation of Ashwini is Ketu, spurring you into new spiritual growth and development but the first few weeks. Ketu is still rather afflicted in Capricorn and will support Mars with deep spiritual growth. Still there may be an interest in new projects but the inability or weakness to finish them so make sure you only take on what you can handle. It can also bring on stubbornness or racing around wildly with too much “wild horse” energy so make sure to slow down and stay balanced.
Aries and Scorpio risings benefit the most from this transit and it is supportive for health. But Scorpios still may experience the 6th house transit of the ascendant lord and get bogged down with debts, battles and minor illness. The energy is there to move through them. Cancers get a lot of energy for career development and Capricorns also benefit from the Yoga in transit for projects around the home and career. Geminis benefit from income and the ability to fulfill their desires and from groups and friends. Virgos may have the most difficulty with this transit but because Mars is in its own sign, Mars will have the energy to triumph over any legal or karmic patterns that come up.
