Mars has been in Sagittarius for a little over a week now. On Sunday, he will square Neptune in Pisces.
What could Sagittarius Mars garner from anything Piscean?
First some background.
Neptune is the God of the Sea, his is a realm of sorrow and bliss, hopes and disillusion, guilt and compassion. He is the ruler of Pisces—this stretch of stars are his home turf. To say he is strong here is a gross understatement.
The Philosophical Warrior demands truth, education and travel, but above all he wants freedom. Mars is beyond comfortable in the 9th sign of the zodiac. Sometimes a wee bit too comfortable with all that fiery, blunt courage.
This is a good sparring match, though Neptune has the obvious upper hand.
Last month, Scorpio Mars trined our Sea God. This is Water Action interacting with Water Dreams. Two planets couldn’t fortify one another better. Water simply understands Water. But, unfortunately, maybe a little too much. With this exchange we run the risk of withdrawing into ourselves, where it is safe and familiar. Why tackle much in the big bad outside world when our own active fantasies are so satisfying? Good question.
Trines are easy but there is no built-in check and balance to make it definitely easy progressive.
But this time around it’s Water interacting with Fire.
This pair share a Mutable quality. Sagittarius and Pisces both have an innate ability to adapt to any situation. They are resourceful and quick on their feet. Fire is gut instinct and Water is emotional intelligence. They have basically the same endgame (which is loosely to save the world!), Fire simply goes about things differently than Water, and vice versa.
So, what’s gonna go down?
Pisces gives our Warrior the emotional acumen to understand the fallout his actions might incur. He becomes a kinder, gentler soldier. His far-reaching philosophies take on the timeless righteousness of undeniable truth. And the Archer EATS that right up!
This is square energy, therefore it is stimulating. It is arousing—something has to be done about it—it ain’t goin’ away. Their’s is the promise of Sagittarius Mars’ unparalleled vitality fulfilling the endless expansive aspirations of Pisces Neptune.
On Sunday, the 21st, the heavens will be alive with this awesomeness. All the better given what Virgo Venus has been up to.
Compassionate action on tap to spackle the cracks in those walls.
