More intensity this week with Mars coming home to it’s rulership in Aries. Also Jupiter and Pluto conjunct, and a build up to the Full Moon Eclipse in Capricorn next Sunday. Mars will be in the sign of Aries until January of 2021, due to it’s retrograde this Fall. This week in particular, Mars is very strong as it passes through the first degrees of Aries, so clarify your goals and take action on issues you’ve been neglecting. Men are going to feel revitalized over the next several months too. It’s a great time for anything requiring courage, ambition, strength, persistence, athleticism, drive; as well as setting boundaries and following passions. The shadow side of this could be more tension, conflict and battles between people and/or countries.
Mars is traditionally the fighter – the one who sets boundaries with a sword in order to define space and protect what’s important.
He is the general and the soldier, the full body trainer and the specialized athlete, the rams in a rut, the passionate artist and the activist.
The sword of Mars can also be a knife for pruning things away that you’ve outgrown.
It takes time, training and experience to master the art of the sword.
Mars demands Justice.
He gives the courage to speak your truth.
He sets the tone.
He is traditionally male, but you best believe women have this power too; usually in the form of Athena.
Mars IS Action. He gives you the power to act when action is needed.
He sits on the Tree of Life under Saturn, his mother Binah. He assists in Saturn’s severe focus on reality, limitation and discipline.

Also, Jupiter conjunct Pluto is exact today, and will inform this week. We are in the middle of three of these conjunctions and they are powerful. Whatever happened around April 5th is going to get a jumpstart. Pluto brings up toxic sludge to be healed and released, and Jupiter is an amplifier. Watch the news today and this week, it ought to be interesting to see the correlations.
