Mars entered Aries about 30 hours ago. This begins a tsunami of activity!
Mars is the first planet to enter Aries in 2013. This initiates a new type of energy that will prove to be much different than the massive Pisces field we’ve had. This jumpstarts Aries energy wherever we have it, and initiates a new pulse to any planets we have in that sign.
It heralds what should be fairly rapid developments in the weeks to come. Cardinal Fire of Aries initiates activity of itself, without waiting around for permission or signals. So it’s definitely time to act on your own initiative!
Whatever comes down while Mars transits early Aries will begin to be powered up when the Sun enters Aries at the Vernal (Spring) Equinox on March 20 at 4:02 am PDT, 7:02 am EDT, 11:02 am Greenwich. That will give vitality and Light Force to the initiatives Mars is setting into motion.
The Sun will conjunct Mars on April 17-18 at 28 Aries, so expect to feel that forming Sun conjunct Mars between the Equinox and mid-April as the span between these two planets gets smaller and smaller. There’s tremendous power in that aspect, so get it in gear (while not being impulsive, headstrong, abrasive, or unnecessarily impatient!)
Venus enters Aries about 40 hours after the Equinox, and also forms conjunctions with both the Sun and Mars. It conjuncts the Sun on March 28-29 at the exact point when both conjunct Uranus at 9 Aries! That sets a year cycle into motion connected to the houses these occupy and rule in our charts.
Then Venus continues, conjuncting Mars on April 6-7 at 20 Aries. This is followed by the New Moon at 21 Aries on April 10 at 2:25 am PDT, 5:25 am EDT, 10:25 am Greenwich. That will initiate a focus on all the previous conjunctions in Aries, and renew the pulses set into motion between March and May 2011 when multiple conjunctions to Jupiter in Aries set a new 12 year cycle into motion.
Obviously this will give greater power to Aries energy, either blocking or braking the ongoing Pluto in Capricorn energy. Keep balanced, keep a sense of perspective, keep your eye on what’s needed and what’s not, and go with the new, original, innovative, and pioneering.
A lot will be set into motion over the next few weeks. Go with the rising tide, let go of the past and leap into action. See it all as an experiment in learning natural laws, remember that things are quickening so don’t be ambivalent when opportunity beckons, and to repeat myself, get it in gear!!
