Good Morning, dear Readers and Friends,

Today’s post is technical but this is the info you need before we go through Mars in the houses.  I always allow about a week for Mars transits — roughly 3 or 4 days on either side of the exact date. So you need to know your chart because if Mars is within 2 to 3 degrees of a conjunction, opposition, or square to your NATAL planets, you will want to pay particular attention to these dates.  It doesn’t matter if your birthday is not Aries/Cancer/Libra or Capricorn — you may have other natal planets in these signs. If you don’t then at least be aware of what houses in your chart contain these signs. These are potentially malefic planets; it will take work and awareness on your part to bring out a positive potential.  If you were my private client, I would advise you to put safety first — these dates are not good for risky or impulsive behavior.  Discipline your thoughts, too. Positive thoughts keep our immune system stronger…

Remember these are transits; the mood of the day’s transits can affect everybody…

Mars square Jupiter 19 degrees Aries/Cap — 8/4/2020 ( the full moon was exact on the 3rd)

Mars square Pluto 23 degrees Aries/Cap — 8/13/2020

Mars square Saturn 26 degrees Aries/Cap — 8/24/2020 (Wisconsin tragedy and riots)

Mars retrograde square Saturn 25 degrees Aries/Cap —9/29/2020 (Saturn direct 9/28)

Mars retro square Pluto 22 degrees Aries/Cap — 10/9/2020 (moon in Cancer)

Mars retro square Jupiter 19 degrees Aries/Cap — 10/18/2020 (Sun square Saturn at 25       degrees Libra/Cap plus Mercury is retrograde)

Mars direct motion 15 degrees Aries 11/13/2020

Mars square Pluto 23 degrees Aries/Cap — 12/23/2020

BTW, the Full Moon is on Election Day, with Mercury going fwd that day — 11/3/2020 — what a mess!!

You will notice that the next square between Mars and Saturn is in January in Aquarius. Different energy. You’ll have to wait till I write posts for both Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius. However, there is a conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter at 0 degrees Aquarius on 12/21/2020 — the winter Solstice when the Sun enters Capricorn.   This is why I asked you to think about community yesterday.  All the other astrologers I’ve read are very negative about this year’s  holiday season, saying the virus is coming back with a vengeance. Yes it is the cold and flu season but there are lots of things you can do to protect yourself. The Aquarian energy is all about computers and technology and also humanitarian love.  Form communities of kindred spirits and the whole of society will be the better for it. Physical or online — find a way to express your heart energy and let all the new technology help you.

Meanwhile, with these Mars transits, if it was me, I would avoid going downtown or even out anywhere that isn’t truly necessary.  The potential for rage and violence is higher than usual.  If you have to send really important papers through the mail, at least insure or certify their delivery.  Lock your car, your home, your purse, and don’t take risks. Be confident, yet polite.  These transits also seem to be manifesting physical emergencies — fires, wind, hurricanes, flooding, etc. Do what you can to prepare and be self-sufficient.  Safety first !!

I hope all this info is helpful  for you. Tomorrow I will start writing Mars through the houses…be well :)) Jenae

Dear Readers and Friends, You can take any transit and interpret it on a mundane level, on the physical level, which can include personal stuff or how the transit might manifest in the outside world. You can also interpret on the mental level, or on the emotional/spiritual level, too.  Today I want to take a look at Mars in Aries more on the psychological level.  Before I get to that part, I want to tell you what I’ve been observing with these Cardinal transits this year…

First of all, anyone with Cardinal planets in their natal is getting hit hard.  We all have Aries/Libra, Cancer/Capricorn energy somewhere in our charts, but those of you with birth planets in these signs are getting hammered. This is due to Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto transiting through Capricorn, as well as Mars in Aries since end of June, and also Mercury and Venus have just made their annual transit through Cancer during July, though Venus is running behind due to it’s retrograde in May/June, so it is in Cancer right now.  Lots of squares and oppositions make for an abundance of challenges…

For example, I have over a dozen clients that are  dealing with health and safety issues for older parents.  This is challenging at any time, but can you imagine how much more difficult it is with the virus issues running concurrently?  Just getting to where the elders live can be a challenge, they won’t let you in the hospital — you have to drop them off at the door, getting help and medical appointments is never easy and now it is so much worse!!  Nursing homes are dangerous, even caregivers can be risky because they are in and out of numerous peoples’ homes, what is a concerned adult child to do?  Every choice has consequences and they are painfully aware of it.  The responsibilities are weighing on them very heavily.  They need some R+R but there IS NO R+R. Not where Pluto is concerned — it is inexorable — all you can do is embrace the pressure as gracefully as you can — resistance is futile. Trust me, I have been there — I lost 17 people in the 8 years that Pluto in Scorpio squared just about everything in my chart.  Years later I realized that it had prepared me to do hospice work for others…

OK, I know you guys already know that Cap represents seniors, but it is  also a symbol for career.  So, yeah, there are a lot of problems with jobs these days. Just having a job has become a HUGE issue. Or working from home and trying to parent kids at the same time. Or working from home and trying to provide education for your kids at the same time. Or working and how do you keep your kids safe when you are at work?  Elizabeth Warren said it so well — we will not be able to fix the economy without safe and affordable daycare.  They are intertwined.  Not everyone can work from home. If you can, consider yourself blessed. In spite of all the problems…

The shifting to more stuff online is going to continue — astrology says that’s a no brainer as both Jupiter and Saturn enter Aquarius this coming December.  I have often heard it said that the best place to be in a recession is in school.  So, those of you having job problems might consider going to school online to further your current career or even shift to a new one.  Since single parents have it even tougher right now, consider what community means to you — neighbors, friends, a roommate who doesn’t gallivant all over town — keep your home as safe as you can, but consider how much small communities of people can do to make life easier for each other.

OK, back to Mars…Mars is the God of War in mythology. Cap is a symbol for government/power/authority.  The squares from Mars in Aries to the Cap transits are pretty obvious out in the world.  Squares = challenge/frustration/the need to make adjustments.  Protests and marches can turn violent.  There are groups that consider themselves to be at war with the government. It doesn’t look like it’s going to resolve very soon, but maybe when Mars goes retrograde, these groups will realize it’s better to be a community activist and get something positive done to change society.  Like backing candidates for government at the local level who will truly help their community. Jobs, childcare, better education and health care. etc.

But I don’t want to discuss Mars in the outer world. There are lots of astrologers writing about that stuff. Read as much as you can.  There will be many different points of view.  What I see at this time is the urge to do things in a new way, to reinvent ourselves (Mars) is at odds with the status quo.  There’s reason Cap rules old age — people get stiff and lose flexibility and this happens in the mind, too.  They get rigid and resist change. Exercising to keep ourselves flexible is a really good thing because it also helps the mind stay open to learning and growing.  We all need that right now. Adaptablity and flexibility will get us through this crisis.  A sentence came to me this morning — “We have the right to change our mind.”  I think that’s a good use for Mars retrograde 9/9/20 to 11/13/20 — plans that are not working out well can be adjusted. Instead of doing things impulsively (Mars), we need to be deliberate and clear about the steps that will get us to our goals.  It’s going to take a bit more patience, too.  That’s the square to the Cap transits. Capricorn works hard to achieve success and likes to dot every i and cross every t — and they don’t give up until they succeed.  Mars loves a good challenge but when it’s been mastered they tend to get bored.  Mars has no trouble starting new things but sometimes completing them is a problem.  The squares are asking us to look at these discordant qualities and find a way to do both to free ourselves from restriction and allow ourselves to have the courage to try new things.  My personal challenge is technology.  I have to walk my talk. For me it means an updated phone and computer. I’m not buying impulsively; I’ve been doing research. I will either move forward now before Mars goes retro or wait till the end of the year.  Part of it is the money but I can feel that internal resistance, the fear of making a mistake.  Which is ridiculous because I have lots of skilled people in my life who will help me.  I’ll keep you guys posted on how this works out :)) And I wish you good luck on meeting your own challenges, whatever they are…

Tomorrow I’ll start going through the houses for the Mars transits…stay tuned…XO, Jenae

Hello Readers and Friends, I’ve been procrastinating.  It’s true. First I was so upset about people not getting treated fairly in this country and all the lies and bad behavior of the media and the politicians — Venus retrograde last May and June and Mercury retrograde in June till July 12th — that I knew better than to write ANYTHING. My path on this earth is not political. My path is to offer comfort when I can and inspiration to those who read my posts. Astrology can be a very practical timing tool for all who care to use it. It is my passion and my gift to the world, along with cards and palm reading.

Then in June, a caregiver came to work sick. Kind, but ignorant, she didn’t want to lose a day’s pay. Our neighbors are part of our extended family and she gave the virus to the Grandma and Grandpa, who gave it to all their adult children and spouses. Grandpa died and Grandma can never live at home again.  I was too sad to write anything, plus we had to quarantine and hope we didn’t get it. We didn’t. The socially distant outdoor burial service was in July.

Then it was August and I still didn’t feel the spark, the joy I usually find in writing.  Today I read another astrologer’s interpretation of Mars square Saturn, exact today.  Leah Whitehorse, and she said quit pushing and getting nowhere and learn patience with this transit. A reasonable interpretation. But for me, today is the day I STOP procrastinating and get on with what I know I have to do — which is write the interpretation for the coming Mars transits in the hope that Mars doesn’t clobber you!!  It is indeed a time for caution, with all the transiting Mars squares to the Cap planets, currently Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn. Right now, with Mars forward until 9-9-2020, retrograde at 28 degrees Aries then, right now is a time for measured and deliberate action to move forward with well thought out plans.

I still feel all the swirl of emotions, and I’m sorry I couldn’t write sooner.  All of this trouble began last January 12th with the conjunction of transiting Saturn and Pluto.  What is decayed and corrupt must come to the surface of awareness to be healed, like a wound that needs dis-infecting. At the end of the day, the power of love is stronger than hate and anger, but these are indeed dark times.

Come back tomorrow and read the beginning of the Mars posts. I will just say one thing before I close…every problem, in our country and on this earth, comes from money and greed — setting money above other important values.  Think about it…

Till manana — stay safe !! Jenae
