I spoke with a raging client last night; he’s got Mars in Aries. He was super-pissed. His anger was mildly justified, but a peer had fed the fire. By the time he called me, he was contemplating quitting his job, in a furious fit, over something that had not yet taken place and probably never would.
Have I made sense? The man planned quite his job in a rage, if and when his company did something to him, which his company would never do. His fury had become spun up, like a fire the rips through a row of building leaving nothing in it’s wake.
I talked him down, I think. I was pissed off myself. I was pissed at this peer who had fed the fire…
“You realize, if you quit your job, which is a great job, by the way…you’ll immediately need another one. And this kid? The kid who’s got you in an outrage? He’s not going to have your problem. He’ll still have a job…”
Cut to this morning, I woke up to a slew of angry comments on the blog. None of them were directed at me, which is almost a miracle. But this is when I realized, this Mars retrograde period is going to be something else.
Right now, Mars (anger) in Sagittarius is squaring Jupiter (enlarge) and Neptune (diffuse). A person can be infuriated at a hologram. Because in the example given, the thing that had the guy pissed off had not even happened.
But Saturn is also in Sagittarius. Good judgment will go a long way.
If you have someone feeding your anger right now, you might want to avoid them. Rage turned inward (retrograde) wreaks havoc…and often results in depression.
I’m a cool head right now, how about you?
