In astrology, a “return” occurs when a planet moves through all the signs then winds up right where it was when you were born. Just thinking about this, you can see why it’s a big deal. Something has gone “full circle”.
You often hear about a Solar returns and Saturn returns. You also hear about Lunar returns. Occasionally you hear about Venus returns but there is not much out there in regards to Mars return. My personal Mars return is approaching. I figure this a good time to write about it.
Mars represents raw, male, energy. It wants, it drives, it fights, it strives, it pushes, it asserts…itself to the front of the line. Mars also represents courage and heroism. It acts.
Note that Mars in it’s pure form is neither positive or negative. A person can want what is best for their family – that’s Mars. A person can act with integrity – this is also Mars.
I don’t know what you are doing with your Mars energy, but your Mars return is a time when your drive is renewed. You experience a thrust of new energy which you can direct in whatever way you choose. What do you want to push towards for the next 23 months?
The Mars return chart also gives information. In fact, my Mars return chart can explain this post and offer a pretty good idea what I’m going to be up for the next two years. It shows Mars in the 2nd house, with Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury in Mars-ruled Scorpio in the 3rd house.
The 3rd house is associated with writing. No wonder I’ve been writing about sex lately. My remarks are becoming more pointed and potent.
I also notice most of the planets are below the horizon. It looks like I’m going to be stirring shit up over the next two years…privately. From home, on a computer. I’m not proud of this. I’m just reading the chart.
Mars return Mars is also squaring Pluto. I’m really glad I looked into this. I’m aware I’m holding a knife at this time; I see now, it’s got a killer edge.
Do you pay attention to your Mars return?
