THE RED GOD OF WAR:
Astronomically, the planet Mars appears red in color, which is reminiscent of fire and blood.
Mythologically, Mars was a god of war.
Astrologically, Mars is the planet of ASSERTIVENESS. The location of Mars in a birth chart by house, sign and connection with other natal planets indicates all the variables with regard to the person’s force, passion, drive, energy, determination and the ability to utilize vitality in accomplishing goals.
INNER WORK SHIFTS TO OUTER PRACTICE:
Mars is currently RETROGRADE (appears to move backward) in Libra. Libra is the sign of balance, harmony, partnerships and social justice.
Mars turns DIRECT (appears to move forward) in Libra on Monday, May 19, 2014. Mars will then continue moving forward through the signs until it goes retrograde in Sagittarius on April 17, 2016.
Mars was the only PERSONAL PLANET in the Cardinal Cross transit. As Mars appears to turn around in the heavens we might see powerful reflections of this energetic shift in our personal lives.
Much of the power of the Cardinal Cross was INTERNALIZED because Mars was retrograde during that transit. For many people, this facilitated the process of pushing through emotional and psychological blocks. As Mars turns around, there might be an EXTERNALIZATION of this energy.
PUTTING IT INTO PRACTICE:
Opportunities might present themselves to outwardly put into PRACTICE the inner work that was previously done during the Cardinal Cross. These issues can no longer be ignored or neglected. Instead, they need to be dealt with directly.
On a larger scale, the tension that has built up in the Ukraine might escalate. Mars in Libra wants justice and harmony. Hopefully diplomacy will win out. If not, it will likely turn into civil war for that region. This conflict could pull in other political powers, including the United States.
