Violence, Explosions, Accidents: Mars Under Pressure Through January 2021

Mars God of War Beer SteinMars in Aries squared Pluto in Capricorn, exact on December 23rd, 2020.  This aspect is separating now but these planets will maintain tension for another ten days or so.  Capricorn represents structure and buildings. Pluto rules bombs and Mars is pointed, intentional, violent and tactical.

As Mars heads into Taurus, to eventually leave Pluto behind, the planet is closing a square with Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius. The Mars Saturn aspect in astrology has a bad reputation in astrology, for good reason.

It’s not that something good can’t come from the combination. It describes steely determination, courage and backbone. But it also tends to be cool, cruel and calculating. Aquarius is not known to be cuddly! None of this is exactly reassuring!

Further, once Mars ingresses into Taurus, it will be closing a conjunction with Uranus in the sign. This will increase the unpredictability factor.  The Mars Uranus combination describes surprise attacks but it’s also strongly associated with accidents.  This is definitely no time to try to make it through a light or such thing.  Remember Saturn will be squaring Mars and Uranus. Consequences can be beyond, merely harsh.

Per the title, Mars will be under pressure throughout January. The nature of the pressure will change as we go. Right now, Mars Pluto is most prominent.  The first week of January, Saturn will be more in play, with Pluto still active.

The second week of January, Mars will be conjunct Uranus in Taurus, squaring Mercury, Saturn and Jupiter. Please be careful in your cars. More on this as it comes in close.

The third week of January, the Mars Uranus square Jupiter and Saturn tension will be maintained. Mercury will slowly move out but the Sun will ingress into Aquarius, taking it’s place.

The fourth week of January through the end of the month, the Mars Uranus conjunction in Taurus will square the Sun, Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius.  This stuff will break up, early in February.

Remember, Mars represents raw male energy.  There is really nothing here to refine it in anyway so just be advised, caution is warranted. I hope you tell people. I say this because one of our friends was involved in car accident that killed a teenager on Christmas eve. Fluke snowstorm. She did not know how to drive in it and now it’s too late.

  1. Hey, I am Virgo with,my natal Urinus in my 2nd house @7:14 Libra and the square of Saturn/Jupiter to Mars and Uranus is exact that degree. What should i expect?

    • Yes, I was looking at this last week and intended to get into it in my newsletter. Yesterday’s explosion prompted me to write this today.

      The Mars Pluto hit my chart directly. It’s definitely got my attention.

  2. The friend. My heart. My heart. Eyes overflow and roll down my face. Young death reflects her fading health. I don’t like this. I ask too much. So much joy she has given me. How can I ask for more from her? Life death cycle, need to do better, be more accepting. Hurting in the wake of this cancer moon. Feeling. Feeling. Unsubsiding tears. I am helpless to help. I can do nothing. Be there. Stay strong. Listen. And then a light forward. Proceed with caution. Avoid risk, take care. For others, not just myself.

  3. Just something caught my eye, never seen before. But transit Jupiter was opposite my brothers stellium ( mars and Uranus included )when he died in a car accident and exact opposed his sun that day . I’m having a Jupiter opposition together with Saturn coming up. I don’t want this fear anymore ?

    • Hi Carmen,am sorry for your brother.Saturn opposit your sun is a positive aspect and you dont have to worry.What you have to do at then moment is not over reacting in anything comes on the ground coz jupiter reactions is always whole.Again sorry for loosing your bro

    • With all we know about astrology, fear of transits is misplaced. These energies can play out in any number of ways including good fortune, and whether they end up being reflected in a tragedy rather than a stroke of powerful luck is not for us to know.

      The tool is there for it spiritual growth, and fear of life and the future will only be inimical to that, so embrace the possibilities, as we all must learn do even while knowing that life is transitory.

      I’m sorry for your loss <3 Grief is the worst of all pain

    • I’m sorry about your brother. But Jupiter conjunct Saturn in it’s own sign is a positive transit.

      This tension will be around for 4 weeks but it’s moving and changing and helping people get things done, too.
      And plan! For success!

  4. I was wondering if the planetary transitions will also impact people with Leo placements especially within the first 10 degrees of Leo?

  5. Sun’s at 24 degrees Libra. Scorpio rising is at 3 degrees. Mars and mercury at 4 degrees scorpio. I feel like I’ve been walking through a land mine this year. I’ve had a couple hits injure me. I will be so glad when we get over these planetary combinations. I know others have had it way worse.

  6. How awful to lose a son or daughter so close to Christmas and so young. I feel your pain and an accident feels like they were ripped away from you. Still, you can be as careful as possible and life (death)still happens.

  7. Thank you for the warnings and your analysis. In the 6th paragraph,last word first sentence, it was clear to me that you meant Jupiter and not Mars, but letting you know if you want to alter it.

  8. Now I really know why the last six months were so contentious.

    I forgot to factor in that Mars is my chart ruler!

    Mars is headed back to my Rising (28 Aries). Pluto is slowly creeping into a square with that Rising. Mars will also oppose Jupiter (29 Libra).

    Even if these Mars squares made no aspects to my natal planets, the fact that Mars was battered by the heavy hitters was going to affect me no matter what. Hence the procession of jobs since July 2020!

    I’ll be glad when this time is over.

  9. Okay, friends. I’m going to try to share the short version. Yesterday morning, some guy from Oncor came & severed electrical service at the meter to my 85 year old mother’s house. No knock on the door, no notice, no phone call, nothing. She is not delinquent. Moreover, I had several Reps tell me that they don’t disconnect at the house anyway … they do it remotely. Furthermore, there was no work order in the system for our address, at all. I literally spent almost 12 hours on the phone, off and on throughout the day, with TXU & Oncor. Unfortunately, I had to resort to showing my ass big time & threaten to call the Texas Utility Commission, Fox News, our local news channels, my attorney, etc. to get anything resolved. Meanwhile, my elderly mother (who has dementia) is sitting in her dark, cold house, scared, & not understanding what is happening. I had several people demand that I “authenticate” the account before they could restore service. I’m like, well, my father died in 2011 (the account is still in his name), so I cannot authenticate him. But, you know what? These MFs have been accepting & cashing my mother’s checks for 9 years — without requiring any authentication of account ownership. After 12 hours & 15 phones calls (where I was re-routed to Guatemala, Colombia, & so on, put on hold for ages then disconnected multiple times), somebody decided to give a damn, because Oncor showed up at midnight & reinstated her power. But that was many hours after their advice was for me to spend my money to pay an electrician to fix what they messed up – by mistake. But there was no record of that. Holy sh*t. I’m exhausted today, after being so angry & frustrated all day long yesterday. Anybody else hate Oncor/TXU?

  10. Let me add that whatever they did to my mom’s electrical, it fried her alarm system. And ruined 2 refrigerators/freezers full of food. Nobody is accountable.

    I’m sorry. I know this probably sounds petty compared to how people the World over are suffering right now. My mom’s comfort level & safety are very important to me, though. The men in our lives who once helped are gone; 2 deceased, 1 in jail. It’s all on me. Thanks for allowing me to cyber-vent.
