Mars in Pisces 

Mars as the ruler of Aries and Scorpio is not particularity at home in Pisces.

Mars in Pisces will slow the pace for a few weeks. You will have some breathing space but if taken to extremes the days can drift by with you lolling about in your pj’s watching old movies.

So what to do now?

This placement inclines towards creative expression like a step session, Zumba or Dance, Dance Revolution. Go with the flow of the music or shuffle round the house in your slippers but let it drive itself.

Energy needs an outlet and the Mars powerhouse within us all has to come out somehow even when Mars in the soft sign ruled by Neptune.

Submarine volcanoes

Another analogy of Mars in Pisces are the undersea volcanoes. These mainly lie between the tectonic plates, for example in the atlantic ocean, where the Earth’s crust is opening up as the continents of America and Africa drift apart.

The gap allows magma to ooze or gush (depending on the place) and the red hot volcanic flow (Mars) is immediately cooled and hardened by the cold sea (Pisces). This product can sometimes be referred to as volcanic glass and Neptune rules mirrors and glass.

Heat is released and warms the deep ocean creating a haven for obscure fish and marine creatures to live. These animals do not exist anywhere else on Earth.

Flash mobs

It seems the flash mob phenomena was born during a Mars transit of Pisces. This is where a large group of people get together and dance in synch to blaring music. These events appear spontaneous (but clearly are well rehearsed behind the scenes) and are usually held in a public place.

If you’ve ever seen this dance in action it gives the impression of a shoal of fish swimming through the ocean, changing direction sharply and in unison trying to evade predators.

Mars goes back to square one

When Mars enters its own sign of Aries at the start of the zodiac it will be back to full steam ahead.

10 Things to Do When Mars is in Capricorn

Mars the planet of energy and drive in Capricorn.

The Red Planet’s energies mesh well in the sign of the Sea-goat as the principles of drive (Mars) and ambition (Capricorn) combine in a supportive manner. We also note that Mars is exalted here.

If you have a Capricorn Sun or ascendant you’ll get a burst of energy as Mars rolls in.

There will be a time when Mars joins forces with Pluto and two of the bad boys of the zodiac gang up. More on the Mars Pluto conjunction later.

What to do now:

The knack to using astrology is to work with the planetary energies and not against them. Let’s have a look at the best way to work this placement.

    • Take steps to get your career on track.
    • Be assertive not aggressive.
    • Attend company sports events.

    • Compete at work.
    • Address issues with your father.
    • Kick limiting strategies.
    • Master headaches.
    • Own your own life path (not your parents).

Surviving Mars in Capricorn and coming out strong is within everyone’s grasp. Make your move.

Mars conjunct Saturn

Mars conjunct Saturn

by Alison Price

When Mars and Saturn get Together we Take Notice

Mars is all about action, energy and competing. Saturn favours control, form, strategy and concrete results.

The imagery is of the young guy in a red shirt honing his skateboarding techniques in the hard landscape of the city park.

How many times has he tried this jump?

Who is watching? His competition, the other young guys, or the pretty girls?





Mars Conjunct Saturn in the Signs

Every two years Mars moves around the chart and catches up with Saturn.

Traditionally Mars was known and the lesser malefic and Saturn as the greater malefic. It is probably not politically correct to use these phrases anymore and yet there is some truth in the labels.

We look to the ruler of the sign that the conjunction is happening in to understand what is going on.

As two planets join forces in a sign one planet will be better placed than the other and its energy can be accessed easier.

Mars will compete with Saturn and when Mars is applying to the conjunction it will rise before Saturn.

After the exact conjunction Mars will rise after Saturn.

Saturn spends about two years and three months in each sign (depending on retrograde periods) so sometimes a conjunction is repeated in the same sign twice.

Mars and Saturn will be conjoined next in April 2022 in at around 22 degrees Aquarius.

Find which house the conjunction will occur in your birth chart as this is the house for this conjunction.


Mars Conjunct Saturn in the Houses

First house

Start a diet. Mars is great for beginning things and with Saturn in your physical body sector, you can control your body size.

Second house

Start a mad-money plan. Decide you have a limited amount to spend on whatever you want and stick to it.

Third house

Take a course that will build on your strengths and bring you closer to your life goals. You can achieve good marks now.

Fourth house

Family dynamic relationships can benefit from you breaking down borders with close members for everyone’s benefit.

Fifth house

If you have kids they may need some guidelines this week as they test your patience. Make plans to give birth to your creative expression.

Sixth house

Sweat it out on the weights at the gym. This is a chance to expend energy to form your muscles and tone your long term health.

Seventh house

If you have been held back in asking someone on a date you now have the courage. If in a relationship you could thrash things out for mutual benefit.

Eighth house

If you are holding yourself back now is a time to examine any limiting strategies and bring things into the open.

Ninth house

There may be travel frustrations. You may experience difficulty if you are writing exams now because you have the desire to rush.

Tenth house

Promotion and putting yourself forward is favored now. Actively engaging in your career path is a good strategy.

Eleventh house

Competition is high. You want to win but perhaps at the expense of your team. You may be singled out and put forward as the front man or woman to represent your group.

Twelfth house

Your energy may be at low ebb. It is probably good to rest if you can. The best way to handle this period is to make master plans-of-action to be used later.




Mars in Libra – Walk softly but carry a big stick

Mars in Libra – Walk softly but carry a big stick

Mars is the first of the superior planets as it is at a further distance from the Sun than the Earth. Mars enters Libra on July 3, 2012 and will be transiting direct until August 23, 2012.

The red planet rules the signs Aries and Scorpio. Libra is the sign of its detriment (because it is opposite Aries) which means it cannot expend its energies to their full potential. Almost as if the brakes and on and the foot is on the accelerator.

Mars was traditionally known as the lesser malefic because of its tendencies to be difficult. Saturn was the greater malefic and both are now in Libra the sign of peace and harmony.

Mars rules all activities which are often shown by verbs, as in “to do” things. Mars is the planet that gets you off the couch and doing activities. Mars is associated with gladiators and the competition of the Olympic Games where you represent your country but you can win medals for yourself and by your own efforts.

In Libra it is a gentle Mars, with style and is somewhat reminiscent of Steam punk prepared for battle but in a calmer way. Mars in Libra looks the part. This can be seen when soldiers wear their uniforms and, by their presence peace is maintained, without a shot being fired.

What to expect now

  • Arms negotiations
  • Cessation of war- Amnesty
  • Active peace
  • Mediation kickstarted
  • Marital conflicts put on hold
  • Energy being expended between the genders
  • Male and female harmony
  • Balanced challenges
  • Male goddesses come forth?
  • Peaceful collaborations

Recently Saturn crossed over the section of the zodiac where Mars is now venturing. If you are a strong Libra, or have many planets in the sign of the scales, or Libra rising you will have felt the effects of the recent Saturn transit. Now you have the follow-up Mars energy to finish off what you may have only considered when Saturn went through.

Who this affects

  • Those with the Sun in Libra
  • People with Mars in Libra
  • If you have Venus aspecting Mars
  • Anyone with Libra rising

In August Mars will catch up to join forces with Saturn. If your birthday in on October 16th, 17th or 18th (of any year), or you have 24 Libra rising, then August 14, 2012 will be a very busy day indeed.
