New Energetic Cycle Begins!

Today the Sun and Mars are conjunct in Leo- kick-starting a new energetic cycle for the next 2.5 years. The Sun- the king of the cosmos, and Mars- the servant of the Sun, meet up once together every 2.5 years. This meetup can be likened to the King meeting with his servant to instruct him on how to do his bidding. Even though the Sun is the almighty and SOUL of us all, its light cannot permeate our existence without the push from Mars- planet of drive, will, motivation, ambition, and energy.

This conjunction collectively is all about shining your own light. It’s about being authentic, expressing your creativity, finding ways to enjoy life, and quieting the ego through surrendering to your unique self. Mars in Leo is about becoming your own authority (Sun). Mars will set ablaze those things in your life which need that extra push to fulfill the Sun’s wishes. The house that Leo rules in your natal chart will be the area of your life where a new energetic imprint will be left.

With both the King and Servant being in the loud and proud sign of Leo, don’t count on their meeting being a private one. The heat from this fiery meetup  will be felt very strongly.

Mars in Cancer- 2017

Mars moves into Cancer today. I happen to have my natal Mars in Cancer in my first house, so I definitely know how emotionally powerful this transit will be. This transit will be about feeling safe in your feelings. Cancer’s sanctuary lies within, while Mars domain is the real world. We will come to understand that our outer world is a reflection of our inner world. The above photo is from the film ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ which follows the story of 3 orphans who have to stick together in situations that constantly threaten to tear them apart. There’s a great quote in the film that says ‘As long as we have each other, we have a home.’ The need to keep their family unit together (Cancer) became the orphans motivation to survive (Mars).

When Mars threatens to break open Cancer’s shell remember that as long as you have self-trust, vulnerability, and FAMILY, you will be safe.

Mars in Pisces: December 19, 2016- January 28, 2017

Mars has moved into the sign of Pisces until January 28, 2017. Now is the time to use your creativity for inspired action. If you have been meaning to write that book, do it! If you want to start a blog, do it! If you want to volunteer your time for a charitable cause, do it!
It’s also important to think outside of the box when you are faced with a challenge. Creativity is often times our saviour in times of crisis.

Mars in Pisces reminds me of Dory from Finding Nemo. She was on a mission to help Marlon find his son Nemo, even though she got confused along the way. Don’t let the dreamy nature of Pisces blur your vision. If you find yourself getting foggy, find a creative outlet. You might create some of your best work yet!

Use your imagination to help navigate yourself during this next month and a bit. If you feel inspired to do something, don’t hesitate, act!

Mars Goes Direct! All is Fair in Love and War

Finally, Mars has gone direct at 23 degrees in Scorpio after being retrograde since April 17 2016. The planet of fire and energy had forced us to go within to  figure out what it is that we wanted in life, so we could then devote our full attention to it. It may be a person, feeling, situation, or dream that you have been neglected. Now that our retrograde is finally over, you will have much more clarity on how to go after whatever it is that you decided on.

Since we have Neptune in retrograde motion until November, it is best to let your intuition guide you during this next while. Don’t rush into anything, pace yourself. With Chiron being retrograde you will be more inclined to take action regarding your wounds, essentially healing will more effective.

Mars in Scorpio means that anything is possible, and that your choices are endless! Mars in Scorpio is all about living life to the fullest, which means accepting challenges head on and never compromising. Losing the battle is not an option for this energy, a relentless need to accomplish your goals will be present.

Your inner fire is beginning to burn once again, and with Mars in Scorpio, your flames will be fed with both focus and progress.
