Astro Alert: Mars Enters Aquarius•
Posted on March 30 2020
At the end of the month, fiery Mars joins Saturn in Aquarius, where he will stay until May 13. In the unpredictable sign of Aquarius, Mars will give us erratic levels of energy, the inspiration for innovation and a strong independent streak. Many of us will feel motivated to protest, or join groups with a mission to improve society, as injustice and corruption will anger us more than ever.
These months are a chance to fight for the ideals that we believe in, joining with friends and like-minded people in an atmosphere of tolerance, friendly competition, and motivation for change. Some less pleasant manifestations of this transit could be a radical attitude, nervousness or difficulty sleeping, so make sure you bring enough change, socializing and inventiveness to your days to keep Mars in Aquarius well-fed.
This is also a time when we can experiment sexually, differentiating emotion and attachment from experience, especially since we might want to try something new. Stay mindful of any obstacles or limitations that you perceive in your freedom around the end of March- they’re a call towards bringing your ideas and your desire for independence from the realm of abstract thought into concrete reality.
This is a time to take initiative in your groups and to act on behalf of those who are marginalized, connecting to your soul tribe in full awareness of the unique contribution that you’re bringing to the world. As Mars conjuncts Saturn in the first degree of Aquarius on the 31st, it could feel like a heavy start, with a couple of challenges- have faith that it’s just a first test that checks how much commitment you have for your cause.
This is the perfect time to get in touch with your loved ones. Make sure you check up on your family and friends regularly and organize some online get-togethers.
