EYE ON THE SKY: MARS IN TRANSITION–SCORPIO TO SAGITTARIUS
Mars rules Aries and Scorpio rising and they are starting an important new journey and transformation now. Mars is getting ready to leave Scorpio on Dec. 27th and move into Sagittarius.
The end of Scorpio, 27-30 degrees is called the stinger tale and is in the gandanta which literally means drowning. Mars will transit this area in Scorpio Dec. 24-27th and this could bring out deep karmic patterns if you are ruled by Mars ie Scorpio rising or Aries rising. It can be an intense time for transformation.
The end of Scorpio is about letting go of material and getting read for spiritual transformation in the constellation of Mula. It can be an intense psychological and emotional time. The last degree, 29.12-29.59 is the most difficult part of the journey and it happens Dec. 26-27th . Here there are deep knots that need to be unraveled for spiritual growth to occur. This can be a place where maximum emotional churning can happen so watch Dec. 26-27. Stay on top of meditation and yoga here or you might feel very fragile. There can be a sense of not being supported and this may be connected to siblings as Mars is the significator or karaka for sibling and particularly brothers. Use this transit to work on deep transformational issues.
Mars moves into Sagittarius on Dec. 27th and is in the Sag. gandanta until Dec. 31st. It is stronger here in the Aries pada (0-3.20 Sagittarius) so has the courage here to to through spiritual pain and do the deep spiritual transformation here.
The constellation of Mula is deeply karmic and can bring about deep suffering if those ruled by Mars are unable to break away from the material bonds and move toward spiritual awakening and Mars stays in Mula Nakshatra until Jan. 14th . Hence the next three could be intense until Jan. 14. Mars gets into Purva Shadha (Sag. 13.20-26.40) Jan. 14 . For Aries and Scorpio. this period require great transformation. Time to take a retreat and do a meditation course or suffer deep emotional pangs and psychological grunge. It can be a time for breakthroughs and Divine support but Jupiter is 5 signs away and providing support with its trinal energies.
