Mars Stations Direct

“I think there is nothing in the world but mystery.” Kenneth Patchen

Mars is preparing to station direct on Wednesday at 23 degrees of Scorpio. One of the intriguing aspects of stationing planets is that for a few days before the station and a few days after, information can surface that represents a culmination of knowledge about what the retrograde period has meant for you. Mystery can abound.

As this retrograde period draws to a close do be willing to look at how broad you allow your future horizons to be. Do you need to re-energize your courage to move forward?  How willing are you to pursue adventure in your life? Does your underlying philosophy of life in general need to be shifted to support a broader view?

Mars has traversed back through the sign of Sagittarius and  will station in Scorpio – the sign of mystery. Do be aware of your deeper knowing at this time. It can be a time of increased wisdom. Be aware of opportunities to resolve inner conflicts and unite dualities.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “The king of the fairies approaches his domain.”


Sabian symbol quote by Lynda Hill

New Moon in Gemini

“Intent is infinite.” Carlos Castaneda

The Moon is new Saturday at 14 degrees of Gemini EDT at 10:59 PM. The Sun, Moon and Venus are conjunct at this time and form a grand square with the Saturn/Neptune/Jupiter configuration. The alignment with Venus indicates the potential for bringing abundance into your life is strong now – with clear intentions and the willingness to leave behind or put into appropriate perspective – relationships or relationship dynamics that no longer work for you.

The Sabian symbols for Saturn and Neptune at this time are, “A widow’s past is brought to light,” and, “A sword in a museum.” It bodes well to stop fighting old battles and to look for new perspectives on the past – particularly those that bring in a healing, wise or spiritual perspective. Another symbol is, ” An examination of initiates in a spiritual brotherhood,” indicating a time to assess how you have grown in your understanding of spiritual values such as kindness and forgiveness.

It is a good time also to be open to guidance, intuitions and messages from Higher Powers. The symbol for Uranus is,” An open window and net curtain blowing  in the shape of a cornucopia,” and one for Mercury is ,”A moving finger points to significant passages in a book,” Do be aware of signs and symbols at this time.

We are living in revolutionary times and with the speed and quality of information coming at us now, life can feel a bit taxing. The Quest degree for Mercury’s placement – Mercury governing how you think and communicate –   is,  “A white dove flying straight and fearlessly over troubled waters.”
