Mutual Reception

by Alison Price

Mutual Reception

Two planets may be in mutual reception when each planet is in the other planet’s sign.

Example: The Sun in Cancer and the Moon in Leo are in mutual reception because the Sun rules the sign of Leo and the Moon rules the sign of Cancer.

Technically planets in mutual reception need a Ptolemaic aspect joining them to be considered in mutual reception, but this strict rule can we waived now and then I believe.

A planet in its own sign cannot be in mutual reception with another planet.

Mutual reception by sign

When mutual reception by sign occurs, and each planet is in the other planet’s sign, it’s like the two planets have entered the party but it is crowded.

Only at the “aspect” have they found each other in the melee.

Then when it’s a Ptolemaic aspect they fall in love in the Moonlight.

Sigh…


Relationships Bonds

When two planets are in mutual reception it creates a bond between them that cannot immediately be seen as with an aspect.

Mutual reception is like a back-channel of energy that flows but you can only see it when you take a closer look.

Like when someone is chatting behind your back to another person and they have an allegiance to them and you don’t realise they are related, like cousins, and that is the connection.

And that’s the lot. It is quite a comprehensive list and one chart may or may not have any mutual receptions.

You may decide to only use the traditional planets from the Sun to Saturn and this would be the case for creating a dispositor tree.

Mars in Gemini – The Juggler

by Alison Price

Mars

The red planet is known for its energy, effort being expended and activity.

This is the planet that gets you off the couch as something inspires you take action. It is all about overcoming inertia and any sluggish behaviour that may have been plaguing you recently.

Martial energy will push forward through the meaning of the sign and there is always a shift in momentum when Mars changes sign.

Gemini the Twins

Gemini is the sign for multi-tasking and Mars in Mercury’s active sign helps you keep all the balls you are juggling in the air. The more balls you have the higher you have to throw them. Yeah…

You may not get much finalized at this time but there will be lots of activity and brainstorming.

Get you thinking cap on and forge ahead, carving out your ideas for world domination.

We want to see you win.

Mars in Gemini

Gemini is not the easiest placement for Mars. It can work for you and it depends on what you are trying to do.

Mars is all about activity and having the energy to expend. The knack is to make an effort where it matters.

It is best to work with the cosmic energy and not against it.

What will you juggle this time?

Astrology Basics for Beginner’s

This is part of the special Starzology Astrology Basics series for you all. Many of you ask where to start and here are the planet’s meanings.

You can check out the rest of the series:

 





Mars in Aries – Fireworks!

When Mars enters Aries it is at the beginning of the zodiac

Where does the zodiac begin?

The zodiac starts at zero degrees Aries. Because the Sun on its path the plane of the ecliptic crosses the celestial equator at zero declination on its path towards the northern hemisphere.

The Sun crosses the celestial equator twice a year at the equinoxes. Once going north March 20/21st (the Aries ingress) and once going south on September 22/23rd (the Libra ingress).

Planetary Ingress

An ingress is when a planet enters a sign or house either moving direct or retrograde.

As Mars enters Aries it is going home to the sign it rules.

The Aries Point

The Aries Point is zero degrees Aries in any chart. Some astrologers take any cardinal sign’s zero degrees as an Aries point. The cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

What to expect when Mars is in Aries

  • Action
  • Energy
  • Heat
  • Competition
  • Masculinity
  • Activity
  • War
  • Conflict
  • Confrontations
  • Excitement
  • Sexual awareness
  • Fires
  • Push, push, push

All of these things are ruled by Mars. When Mars is in its own sign it can operate cleanly and clearly at its true meaning.

Whilst Mars was recently in Pisces it was not a good place for Mars’ energy to be expressed.

Precession of the Equinoxes

This is the phenomena that the point of the vernal equinox (when the Sun enters Aries going north) is moving backwards through the constellation signs at the slow rate of one sign over a two thousand (ish) year period.

The Great Years

In astrology a great year is almost 26000 years and each Great Year is divided into twelve Great Months or Ages of around a two thousand year (give or take) period. You have heard of these Ages as for example the Age of Aquarius.

Therefore the Age of Aries came before the Age of Pisces. Before the Age of Aries was the Age of Taurus.

In Ages each sign is before the present one going backwards through the signs. The “Ages” are reversed because of the precession of the equinoxes.

Great Years show large sweeps of history and are background noise for each time period.

The Age of Aquarius

We are now living in the Age of Aquarius (which began around the year 2000AD) and will last for just over two thousand years until about 4000AD. The symbol for Aquarius is two wavy lines like radio waves or microwaves and all technology waves and wireless devices and gadgets.

The Age of Pisces

Looking back, the Age of Pisces occurred from about year 1AD (at Christ’s birth) until 2000AD. The symbol prevalent at this time was the fish and this can still be seen on bumper stickers to indicate a Christian.

The Age of Aries

The Age of Aries was from +/- 2000BC to 1AD which is again a two thousand year period or “Age”. The symboAriesls used in this age were the ram which is a male sheep. In Egypt Rameses I, II and III were cracking the whip. And the Romans developed metal armor and weapons to wear in battles and wars.

When considering this information you can see that the Mars ingress into Aries is highly important.

Mars enters Aries and starts the whole cycle again every two years. This is the time it takes Mars to make one orbit of the Sun and is the length or a Martian year. Obviously we are not experiencing Mars entering Aries for the first time it has happened. Mars get around.

We experience a Martian ingress into Aries every two years.

Mars disposes planets in Aries

As Mars moves through Aries it disposes planets in that sign. When Mars is in Aries it is a prime position to be final dispositor. Always give a quick scan to see if this is the case.

Mars in Pisces

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 volcanoesMars astrology Reading Card

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.
    • Participate in the office Year-end festivities.
    • Become the Go-To guy or gal.
    • 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 can Kickstart Your Projects

Mars

Mars is the planet of beginnings, pioneering action, expended effort and it shows where you are happy to burn energy.

Mars rules the sign Aries the Ram, which it the first sign of the tropical zodiac, and is the traditional ruler of Scorpio the Scorpion.

As the first of the planets further from the Sun than the Earth, Mars takes about two years to make one complete pass through the zodiac. Because of this orbital period Mars can be used to kickstart events and courses of action in your life.

Mars return

This two year period is known as a Mars return. When Mars returns to the natal position in your birth chart it will be your Mars return and you will have one every two years.

Having two years to do something may seem a long stretch but if you consider planning to complete a course at college or organizing a wedding it can offer a convenient time span.

The trick is to begin what you want to do when Mars transits the planet in your chart that rules the activity you want to start.

  • Mars conjunct your natal Venus or 7th house ruler can be pleasant for initiating wedding arrangements.
  • As Mars approaches Jupiter, or your 9th house ruler, it suggests you could be open to studying.
  • The red planet crossing your Midheaven indicates a period to take your career on another tack.

Close encounters of the third kind

If you are lucky (?) to receive a Martian three contact transit to a natal planet, it shows the time is ripe to expend the effort required to get that particular project started.

At the first direct transit you may initially be enamored by the idea and inspired. During the retrograde pass doubt can set in about the validity of the venture. Finally on the last contact your plans should be steaming along and well under way.


 

Mars in Sagittarius

by Alison Price

Mars enters Sagittarius

Mars wants to compete and initiate things. Sagittarius is keen to be on a journey be it religious, educational, philosophical or physical. Here the sprinter (Mars) meets the marathon runner (Sagittarius).

What to expect

  • Defenders of the faith come from from all sides.
  • Adventure and excitement abounds.
  • Your energy is scattered now and it may be hard to focus.
  • You easily justify your actions.
  • Sport and competition are favored.
  • Journeys begun now will be enlightening.

To make use of astrology properly you need to find ways to work with the planetary potentials of the moment. You’ve gotta to know when to hold ’em and when to fold ’em.

Whilst Mars is energizing Sagittarius you can take the initiative and get your plans moving.

Steady now, you may want to start too many things at once. This is the time to pick your battles but not go overboard.

Fortune favors the brave

If you have a long term project that has been languishing on the back burner it can be begun now. Have faith and simply start. Perhaps your adventure awaits.

Every journey begins with the first step. Take yours as Mars strides through Sagittarius.


 

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 came together in 2012 in Libra. Two years before in 2008, the conjunction occurred at 5° Virgo and in 2016 it was in Sagittarius and in 2018 it is in Capricorn.

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 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.

Write you thoughts in the comments section below.

Uranus square Pluto both disposed by Mars

Uranus square Pluto and Mars in Virgo June 2012

I have spent some time thinking about Mars as the dispositor of Uranus in Aries (Mars is dignified by rulership in Aries) and the exalted ruler of Pluto in Capricorn (Mars is dignified by exaltation in Capricorn).

There will be seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto over the next two years. This upcoming scenario provides a living classroom to monitor how a dispositor’s condition influences transiting planets.

Uranus is in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn for the whole period.

  • June 24, 2012 – Uranus 08 – Pluto 08 Rx – Mars Virgo 25
  • September 19, 2012 – Uranus 07 Rx – Pluto 07 – Mars Scorpio 17 (rulership)
  • May 21, 2013 – Uranus 11 – Pluto 11 – Mars Taurus 22 (detriment)
  • November 1, 2013 – Uranus 09 Rx – Pluto 09 – Mars Virgo 10
  • April 21, 2014 – Uranus 13 – Pluto 13 Rx – Mars Libra 14 Rx (detriment)
  • December 15, 2014 – Uranus 12 Rx – Pluto 12 – Mars Aquarius 08
  • March 17, 2015 – Uranus 15 – Pluto 15 – Mars Aries 19 (rulership)

The square aspect is the one where you can get things done. This is not the time to wait and see. The urgency inherent in a square demands situations to happen, unfold and manifest.

A ninety degree aspect as a vector brings two difficult sides together to thrash out solutions. The issues ruled by Uranus and Pluto will be affected as they are brought into an alliance (sometimes kicking and screaming) by this transiting aspect.

Look in your chart and find the two houses where Uranus and Pluto are now. The situations expressed by each house indicate how you will experience much of this ongoing square.

Now consider which house Mars is in at the time of the seven exact aspects (see table). This position will influence how you make an effort and experience the themes developed through this square transit. Mars as a dispositor by rulership and exaltation may change the nature of the energies being sparked from the square.

Over the period you may find that all three planets shift from one house to another in your chart. As Mars moves house it suggests how you may challenge the square from different standpoints. Use Martian attributes of action, heat and competition coupled with the house meaning to expend the energy being brought to bear by the Uranus Pluto square.

As the Uranus square Pluto transit evolves, the condition of Mars will influence your experience.

Over the next four years as each square applies I will ponder the presence of Mars over the square. I invite you to share your experiences.
