MARS in AQ (March 30 – May 12) – Light Warriors in Action: Freedom for ALL.

30 Mar

Dear Friend in the Cosmic CommUnity,

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

Today’s the day:
MARS just moved into AQ!

…and coming out of CAP where ‘He’s’ exalted (strongest in the Zodiac – phew, did it ever show!).
MARS has plowed through CAP since Feb 16, instigating lots of global govern-mental & executive action and re-action (‘War on Virus’), and massively mobilizing / ramping up and exhausting esp. medical resources & infrastructure, esp. round the time when MARS ‘activated’ (to put it mildly) JUPITER & PLUTO (March 20 / 22), which led into the New MOON in ARIES on March 24 – ruled by MARS: Are we in a whole New Life now, or what?!

In the meantime, SATURN moved into AQ on March 21 (temporarily for now, until July 1). A test for Humanity – to not be separated.
Ringed SATURN is the locker-downer, and deals with the currency of fear, security, law & order – all of which is affecting Humanity (AQ) in sooo many respects now.
SATURN has been the leading Archetype of this whole scenario – as it rules CAP where the concentration of Planets happened big time over the last months (initiated by the SATURN – PLUTO conj. on Jan 12), with SATURN – PLUTO – JUPITER – MARS, and also since SATURN is since Jan 12. And SATURN has been literally ahead of all the other Planets (JUPITER, PLUTO, MARS).

 

But: MARS is on the heels of SATURN now, and entered AQ too – today! – to meet & pass SATURN tomorrow March 31.

In this article are great sky maps of their union – with JUPITER nearby (PLUTO is right next to JUPITER too but not visible with the naked eye).
And it also shows the JUPITER – SATURN union on Dec 21, 2020 – at the point in the Zodiac where MARS meets SATURN tomorrow (1º AQ).

What’s the astrological message of the heavens, with such exceptional alignments?

The bigger backdrop is SATURN – PLUTO (“Let the Old Empire expire!”) – activated by the Lunar Eclipse on Jan 10.
I’ve been writing about it over the last 2 years.

Externalized / institutionalized top-down Power & Authority comes to a big crescendo while true Human Power & Authority are restored from the inside-out, and as we come together (AQ) in Community & Collaboration. Group Consciousness is already shifting, as we’re all in this together.
The new 20-year socio-political-economic JUPITER – SATURN cycle starting with their alignment at 1º AQ on Winter Solstice
(9 months from now!) will initiate a new phase for Humanity.

 

AQ post-CAP is presently (until July 1) tightened-up by Cosmic Coach SATURN which gives us lessons and shows us cause-effect scenarios esp. related to fear & control (don’t wait until “hindsight is 2020”!).

And that’s where MARS comes in – literally.
Warrior Archetype MARS enters AQ today to pass SATURN tomorrow.
Light Leaders & Light Warriors are showing up and coming forward now, activating our Humanity.
It’s not a war against anything and anybody, but an activation to liberate us from fear & ignorance.
AQ likes & brings crystal clarity, and MARS is fierce….
Stirring up Humanity to collaborate and co-innovate – since we’re ready for breakthroughs – NOW. 

 

 

What does MARS in AQ mean for the AQ sides in us (SUN, MOON, AC, Planets, Nodes)?

Well, they get an energy boost, to be even more Aquarian, in terms of being the Light Warriors, and co-pursuing Freedom for ALL. We have to come out as the liberated ones, and come together.
DO it, says MARS in AQ, as the energy is available now and it’s super timely.

More about your personal MARS in AQ effects below.

 

 

What’s the Itinerary for MARS in AQ 2020?


…and the Cosmic Activation it brings into the mix / Astro Weather, as it contacts other Planets
?

Rule of thumb, re the dates below:
The energy is active / available in the whole week around the dates when it climaxes. The build-up time is usually stronger than the outflow phase.

 

MARCH 30
MARS enters AQ.
Light Warriors in Action: Freedom for ALL.
It takes a village / team / humanity to collaborate.
All things CO- rock.
Big drive to come together in Like-Spirited / Light-Spirited Community (and yes, technology helps).
Experts (scientific and otherwise experienced) are showing up.
New & ‘unusual’ forward-thinking voices need to be heard – equally
(beyond CAP hierarchy).

 

MARCH 31
MARS having just entered AQ meets & passes SATURN.
Pushing boundaries. Moving outside of the matrix & consensus reality ‘ring’.
Beyond old blocks, obstacles, fears, and patriarchal / hierarchical control, there’s Freedom.

 

APR 7 – Day of the LIBRA – ARIES Full Moon
MARS in AQ (ruled by URANUS) squares (a MARS aspect) URANUS in TAU.
Upsets? Social unrest? Revolutionary breakthroughs?
How can we emBody Freedom, and come together in CommUnity?

 

APR 8 – 10
MARS in AQ in sextile with CHIRON & LILITH in ARIES
(ruled by MARS).
Freedom in action. Moving forward together, in our authentic, unconditioned, ‘wild’ and free way.
Don’t be the sheep / sacrificial lamb – be the bold Ram.
Healing happens when we show up.

 

APR 15 / 16
The waning MOON in AQ meets MARS.
Primo days for congregating with your like-minded / light-hearted Spirit Family and getting something started together. Online is cool.

 

APR 18
MERCURY in ARIES (ruled by MARS – from Apr 10 on) sextiles MARS in AQ.
Be bold. Speak out. Inspire a-new.
Your circles and Humanity needs to have this discussion.

What are your questions? What’s your message NOW?

 

MAY 11 – just 10 hrs before MERCURY enters GEM, and 1 day before MARS enters PISCES:
MERCURY at the end of TAU squares MARS at the end of AQ.
What does Nature say to Humanity?
How do you as a Human Being talk to Nature?

 

MAY 12
MARS enters PISCES – and surfs in the Cosmic Waters of Oneness until June 27.
Could be still a contagious confusion ‘soup’ – yet the Warrior of Love releases toxicity, connects the dots, and connects in the ONE.

 

 

MOON – MARS Contacts

Besides the Martian activation / inter-action with other Planets, we’ll also feel (maybe even more personally) the weekly dynamics between the MOON and MARS, whenever the MOON makes a sharp aspect angle from a FIXED sign (TAU – LEO – SCO – AQ) to MARS in AQ, either via conjunction, square, or opposition.
A good time to stay firm, yet don’t get attached to any agenda.

The Wesak Moon of the Buddha (May 7) in SCO – TAU, widely t-squared by MARS falls into this MARS in AQ period.
It actually concludes the dynamic MOON – MARS contacts.
How does the inner Spiritual Teacher guide us to / with the Inner Light to ultimate Freedom?

 

Here are the MOON – MARS dates – mark your calendar:

APR 2 
Waxing MOON in LEO opposing MARS

APR 9 – Passover begins / Holy Week before Easter
Post-Full MOON in SCO squaring MARS

APR 15 / 16
Waning MOON in AQ meeting MARS

APR 23 – Day after the Earth Day New Moon / Ramadan begins
New MOON in TAU squaring MARS

APR 30
Waxing MOON in LEO squaring MARS

MAY 7 – Wesak Buddha Full Moon
Full Wesak MOON in SCO squaring MARS

 

 

Where is MARS’s Liberating Boost in AQ Happening in Your Chart & Life?

As you read this maybe you have your SUN, MOON, AC, or Planets in AQ? Then there’s more to MARS’s visit in AQ, since ‘He’ also activates your AQ Archetypes. They get a boost of energy – to show up and help free Humanity.   

And for all of us, whichever House/s AQ inhabits in our birth charts is the liberation realm – the corresponding area of Life is about Freedom for ALL.
Which can also be about turning conflict into freedom & co-innovation!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS – All ONLINE at this Time

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.
Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. 

I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life. I welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?
Come over / let’s meet online, for your private Astro session!

MARS in TAURUS (Feb 14 – March 30): Slow and Steady Strength into Spring

14 Feb

Dear Astro Friend on Planet Earth,

Today, Feb 14, MARS left ‘his’ ARIES domain, shortly after ‘his’ grand finale, offering in ‘his’ bi-annual linking with URANUS on Feb 12 fierce ‘fire crackers’ or other surprise effects (like extended and substantial snow here on Vancouver Island), revolutionary and liberating energy outbursts!

To enter TAURUS where the ‘Warrior’ energy will dwell until March 30:
Pursue natural Desires, Be Fully EmBodied, and Enjoy Life with all your Senses
 (the new Chinese Year of the Earth Piggy is in par with that).

Yet Remain Unattached.
Be in Nature and in Your Nature!

Johfra Bosschart Taurus

Johfra Bosschart: Venus Rules Taurus (and the Martian Warrior Takes a Rest)

Spring is now hopefully for real on the doorstep here on the West Coast (thanks Goddess for granting the gift of patience!), as the Martian energy settles into TAURUS – inviting us to slow down, enjoy Life with all our senses, plant seeds, and take some time to relax…

…after perhaps battling the elements, or fighting with others, running and rushing here and there, starting a lot of fires, and being highly charged and challenged, under MARS in fast and furious ARIES at the start of the year (Dec 31 – Feb 14).
MARS in in its ruled sign ARIES is a fast, direct, initiatory energy, and brought up anger and the impulse to assert.

MARS in fiery ARIES came to a crescendo in the first half of February, when it squared PLUTO the Transformer on FEB 1, and joined forces with URANUS the Awakener / Electrifier on FEB 12.
How was that for you? 
Did you ‘jump’ – or ‘surf’ through it? Enlivened and energized? Or irritated and dealing with Power issues?
A catalyst energy for transformation and liberation it’s been… Perhaps something in you like in myself ‘suddenly’ shifted, affirming to ‘keep things simple’ and show up authentically.

 

MARS is our assertion / life force / vitality Archetype. 
It rules the Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura) – our power centre.
You know that sensation in the stomach when getting triggered…
Always good to check in and register what that has to do with the Ego. Yes, MARS is also the ‘Ego Planet’, expressing itself in ARIES rather direct and aggressively / assertively: “This is what I want and going for. And I’m doing it – actually: NOW.” Butting heads and flared-up battling can be an immediate effect when assertions conflict with one another. And yes, it’s been definitely an assertive time over the last 1 1/2 months…

Sheep Babies

Sheep Babies – baaaahh!

And / or it could have expressed as emergence and spontaneous action. Innocent. Baby steps.
Just going for it, trying out something new, rather than contemplating and ruminating.
ARIES is the first sign of the Zodiac. The Spring Lamb.

Hopefully we could channel the energy into this spontaneous, authentic action – and get up and start fresh when things were short-lived, or didn’t go anywhere.

 

With MARS now in TAURUS, the energy lends itself to slowwwing down, literally sitting and meditating, sitting with our initiatives and choices, smelling the fragrances of the (fingers crossed!) incoming Spring, cooking and tasting yummy food, listening to the sounds of music and the sounds of Nature, enjoying Life with all our senses, and honouring Mother Nature (every day is Earth Day!) and our earthly existence.
Fighting for Mother Earth and all her creations would be a natural MARS in TAURUS impulse, or rather resisting than actively fighting.

 

In its nearly 2-year cycle, MARS was in TAURUS the last time in March / April 2017.
We’re now coming full circle with what we planted and what took roots since then – esp. in the area of our lives relating to TAU in our charts (House, Planets, SUN, MOON, AC in TAU).
One thing that comes to mind for me from that time is new actions (MARS) I took in my business (ruled by TAURUS – yep, that meant also investing money – a Taurean domain too), and the patience required with seeing things ‘bloom’.
Looks like it’s time for more inspired action – and for ‘gardening qualities’ of patience and persistence.

In TAURUS, the first Earth Sign of the Zodiac, MARS

  • helps us with being grounded,
  • give more attention to our body and its natural desires,
  • and going for tangible, sensate experiences of being alive.
  • We tend to rather pursue security and stability than ephemeral adventures.
  • Our motivation to assert (MARS) what’s valuable (TAU) is strong – and can sometimes become rigid and stubborn (TAU when there’s attachment.

And hey, what’s REAL WEALTH?

 

On a deeper level, MARS in TAURUS helps us with grounding and embodying Spirit-in-Matter.
PLUTO and SATURN nowa-years in ultra-Earthy rock-solid CAP have us
lead by example – by being an embodiment of our intrinsic soul / spirit / essence.

MARS goes into Earth Trine alignment with SATURN on March 14, and with PLUTO on March 20, supporting acting / moving from Power-as-Simplicity and Body Wisdom.

In these MARS in TAURUS weeks, lets re-discover slowing down and enjoying the EmBuddha-ment (Embodiment without attachment)!

 

Buddha_Blessing

 


MARS in TAU in Earth Trine with SATURN & PLUTO in CAP just before / AT Spring Equinox is a welcome grounding and integrative upcoming Astro~Weather pattern, after a wilder Martian ride in ARIES at the beginning of this year. A good time to find inner ground in the big evolutionary changes, and to be clear where we stand.

It’s also an excellent energy to guard and protect sacred land and Mother Earth from exploitation and abuse of resources. MARS in TAURUS can harness resisting and defending energy, to be channeled into a deeper, evolutionary purpose.

MARS in TAURUS (Feb 14 – March 30) Meetings with other Cosmic Archetypes

Weekly (mostly on / just after the weekend), the MOON in fixed signs TAU, LEO, SCO and AQ meets, goes into square, and opposition with MARS.
Days to watch for, re: emotional re-actions / attachments / confrontation / resistance.

Be the wise and patient Buddha…

 

MARS in TAU itself goes into mostly ‘chill’ and mutually supportive aspects with the SUN, NEPTUNE, SATURN, MERCURY, and PLUTO.
Good to know – and not to ‘neglect’ / be lazy re: the gifts in this.


FEB 14
MARS enters TAU
Slow, Steady, Strong, into Spring

FEB 17
The MOON in LEO in square with MARS in TAU
Don’t let ego, pride, and stubbornness get the better of you / get involved in ‘theirs’. 
Be playful and enjoy Life.

FEB 23
The MOON in SCO opposes MARS in TAU
Feeling like someone / life / your deep-dark emotions poking and provoking you like El Toro being poked by the Matador?
Don’t turn the discomfort against you, go into brooding / pouting, or numb it with food. Better to go to the bottom of things, emotionally, and guided by your bodily sensations.

FEB 27
The SUN in PISCES in sextile with MARS in TAU
A ‘Spa Day / Evening’? Perfect day to chill, rest, and enjoy.

MARCH 3
The MOON in AQ in square with MARS in TAU
Conflict between your (or your friend’s / partner’s) need to socialize, and the Call of Nature, peace and calm? How can it be reconciled? Freedom matters.

MARCH 10
MARS in TAU sextile NEPTUNE in PI
Being calm, relaxed, and open to attune to and connect with synchronicities and miracles.

MARCH 11
The MOON in TAU conj. MARS
Time to cook up something yummy.

MARCH 14
MARS in TAU in  Earth trine with SATURN in CAP
Know where you stand, simply, clearly. Find Inner Ground.

MARCH 17
MERCURY retro (post conj. with the SUN) in PI sextile MARS in TAU
Let your Body guide you to be open for Messages.

MARCH 18 – here we go again, one lunar cycle later:
The MOON in LEO in square with MARS in TAU
Don’t let ego, pride, and stubbornness get the better of you / get involved in ‘theirs’. 
Be playful and enjoy Life.

MARCH 20 – Spring Equinox (first day of ARIES, ruled by MARS!) & Full MOON in LIBRA-ARIES!
MARS in TAU in Earth Trine with PLUTO in CAP
Harness resisting and defending energy, and channel it into a deeper, evolutionary purpose.

MARCH 21
VENUS in AQ in square with MARS in TAU
En-Joy with all your Senses, yet don’t get attached to your desires. Love is always Free.

MARS in TAU in quincunx with JUPITER in SAG.
Beyond wanting permanence there’s freedom in knowing what it’s all about…

MARCH 24 – rolling out the MARS – PLUTO (ruling SCO) dynamic:
The MOON in SCO opposes MARS in TAU
Go to the bottom of things emotionally, and guided by your bodily sensations.

MARCH 30
MARS leaves TAURUS and enters GEMINI
Find your Voice, and take Flight.

 

MARS in TAURUS (FEB 14 – MARCH 30) ushers two slow moving Archetypes into new Zodiac signs:

  • Shamanic CHIRON goes fully into (MARS ruled!) ARIES – already next week, Feb 18 – until Apr 14, 2027!
    The Medicine of Showing up Authentically!
  • URANUS – Archetype of the Awakener – leaves ARIES (since 2011) and fully enters TAURUS, on March 6 – the day of the New Moon in PISCES.
    Wake UP, Earthlings!

 

Dedicated to MARS in TAURUS,
in Earth Trine with SATURN and PLUTO in CAP – exact March 14 & 20:

A MESSAGE FROM THE HOPI ELDERS

You have been telling people this is the Eleventh Hour.
Now you must go back and tell the people that this is THE Hour.
Here are the things that must be considered:
Where are you living?
What are you doing?
What are your relationships?
Are you in right relation?
Where is your water?
Know your garden.
It is time to speak your Truth.
Create your community.
Be good to each other.
And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel like they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination.

The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off toward the middle of the river, keep your eyes open, and our heads above the water.
See who is here with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves!
For the moment we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lonely wolf is over.
Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we have been waiting for.

The Elders
Oraibi, Arizona
Hopi Nation

MARS now in SAG (Jan 26 – March 17): Itinerary for the Journey

27 Jan

Yayyy!
MARS ‘made it’ over the ‘Phoenix Point’ (check out this apropos post) –
Coming out from the depths of SCORPIO, arising into the heights of SAG, on Jan 26!

Fiery energy wants to arise now that’s excellent for motivation, enthusiasm, literally travelling, shooting from the Heart, being in your Truth, and aiming high!

MARS gets your inner SAG going, and fired UP!
Got your SUN, MOON, AC, Nodes, or Planets in SAG? These sides / Archetypes in you get a boost of energy over the next weeks!
Even if you don’t have ‘anything there, SAG occupies a certain House in your chart. This area of life gets lit up now; action & movement are ON.


Examples: 

SAG in your 7th House of Partners / Partnerships: Do something fun, heart-ful, and adventurous with your partner, and important people in your life. 
SAG in your 2nd House: Promote your business, finally get that website out, and move yer body!

With SAG, just say YES, and go for it – if the Spirit calls you! It’s called adventure…. Are you motivated to move – freely and spaciously? Time to get going!
Also note that NO PLANETS are RETRO until March 8 – clearly a time to catch the momentum.

MARS now in SAG energizes literally walking, hiking, journeys, and all sorts of sports esp. where legs and eye sight (which SAG the Centaur Archer rules) are crucial.

 

MERCURY was recently retro in SAG (Dec 2 – 22, 2017, with ‘stormy’ times before and after). Where communication went astray MARS now in SAG showsopportunities and brings motivation to get things going in a new way or direction, after having seen the bigger picture.

Also, MARS is in SAG for the first time since 2016 (when it even went retro in SAG, back to SCO – any connections to then?
And MARS is in SAG the first time after SATURN gave us SAG lessons (2015 – 2017), which helps with moving forward where there’s been ‘Fear of Flying’, or holding back from moving forward for reasons that are only now seen.

 

MERCURY was recently retro in SAG (Dec 2 – 22, 2017, with ‘stormy’ times before and after). Where communication went astray / nowhere MARS now in SAG shows an opportunities and motivation to get things going in a new way or direction, after having seen the bigger picture.

Also, MARS in SAG for the first time since 2016 (when it even went retro in SAG – SCO), after SATURN in SAG (2015 – 2017) helps with moving forward where there’s been ‘Fear of Flying’.

Funny – I realized the other day that the matches I’ve been using all along  have a ‘Phoenix’ image – Red Bird!
Goes to show / confirms:
Sometimes, it takes a little ‘synchronicity nudge’ to see with fresh eyes what’s always been there (also very SAG!)! 

SAG is an intuitive energy – if lit up by Spirit!

A moving & uplifting story teller, motivator, and heart-to-heart connector. One who starts a movement…

Jupiter Rules Sagittarius.
Painting by Johfra Bosschart

Just as the SAG Centaur-Archer pulls the arrow first back to the Heart before aiming and shooting / releasing(!) it, let your Heart and Inner Light (see the Hermit with the lantern in the picture?) be ignited, and let they lead your direction!

BE in your Truth, let the Truth set you FREE, and move with your Truth and Trust!

BE in your Truth, let the Truth set you FREE, and move with your Truth and Trust!

Maybe literally travel or initiate a journey – don’t ‘over plan’ though! -, and have something to look forward to. Go on a pilgrimage, or ‘simply’ move the energy, to free up what might have been stuck, over the Fall and early Winter – or maybe for a long time….

SAG is fun and inspiring – if it doesn’t get too dogmatic about their truth, and stays really open-minded and generous…

My mom in Germany told me on the phone last weekend that the Carnival is in full swing there, with lots ofcomedians giving satire speeches and doing spoofs about politicians and celebrities. Intentional ‘fake news’ with a purpose. A modern version of the medieval Jester – King tradition.
Which is also an AQ – LEO dynamic!
The Court Jester, well aware of what people / commoners were thinking and talking about, was the one conveying the voice of the people to the king, and letting him face ‘the mirror’.
A regulatory function we could use more of these days – with ‘kings’ who have a good sense of humour, and see the value and importance of listening to wise Jesters.

 

Mars (Hubble Space Telescope)

So, let’s check into the 

Itinerary for MARS in SAG (Jan 26 – March 13, 2018)

Jan 26:
MARS entered SAG (until March 17).

Soaring in new Freedom like an Eagle! Follow your Vision!

Jan 30:
