Moon in Rohini/Taurus + Shukla Tritya (3rd)
A few days ago, I wrote about the fire element. Read here if you want.
I’ve been fielding questions over the last few days asking what is happening (is it Saturn?), my blood pressure is elevated, I cannot sleep, I’m dealing with a lot of anger and frustration, etc.
This is fiery Mars in Retrograde. Remember, when a planet is in retrograde, it appears to be going backwards in the sky in relation to us, here on Earth. That is just a perception due to the orbit. In actuality, Mars is closer to Earth and this means that it has a greater influence on us.
Some keywords for Mars are: Vitality, focus, aggression, logic, innocence, friends, siblings, 3rd chakra. It indicates ambition and desires, our drive, our action.
It is currently retrograde in Gemini (until Nov 13th) but will spend most of the time in Taurus, a steadfast earth element sign before it moves direct in early January.
This happens every two years and the last time it happened was September through November 2020. What we saw then was that Biden won the presidential election and there was a surge of anger and frustration, a pressure cooker, that continuously built, even after Mars went direct, until Mars was crossing gandanta on January 6th, 2021 and that pressure cooker exploded.
Well, thank goodness, we are not dealing with fire/water signs and gandanta (there were also all kinds of interesting natural phenomena happening then.
This time, we are deal with mostly Taurus, a fixed earth sign, that can buckle down and endure the pressure. Use your anger, process it through your heart and let it become a valuable energetic resource. If you don’t know how to do that, now is the time to consult your trusted therapist, teacher or friend. Get to your groups, this is best processed with your people you trust. Let the frustration and anger be transformed into solid, determined action.
This is a cosmic gift.
How does it work in your chart? Take a look at what house it is, what are those indications? Do you have planets there? Maybe it is time for a refresher?
I’ll be teaching a monthly workshop on the fourth Fridays in 2023 (via Zoom) on the houses and their indications so you can start to co-participate with your blueprint in a new way. It will include a meditation. Save the date.
