october 1st -10th—an astrological bonfire

So, we got a taste of this action recently on the 25th, yes?

Starting around the 1st, Mars in Sagittarius is moving into orb with Uranus and Leo and IT IS ON!!

This aspect will continue to gain strength until it perfects around the 4th of October, then will last well into the week after.  It is forming the bedrock for a Kite formation with the Sun/Venus/Nodal Axis/Moon/Uranus during October’s Full Moon/Eclipse on the 8th.

And like any grand-Fire-trine should, it’s gonna go out with a bang, folks!

There will be a Yod involving the Moon in Taurus on October 10th, tying up Mars and Jupiter in the mix.

So much action.  You’d think someone lit a match in a gas can!

I will post about the Kite, Lunar Eclipse—all of it separately.  Right now, I want to concentrate on the grand-Fire-trine.

september 25th—jupiter trine uranus—abundance for the collective

Jupiter is at 15° of Leo, Uranus is retrograde and at 15° of Aries.

The universe is being rather generous with it’s Fire, ain’t it?  And, it’s only gonna get hotter.  Right in time for the growing chill of autumn.

This Thursday’s trine is a precursor to the 10 day long big event, when Sagittarius Mars joins the party, making a grand-Fire-trine, from roughly the 1st-10th of October.

Lots of time to reap the benefits.  So, let’s get to know these fiery guys better and break down what a trine will do to blend their energies.

Uranus made his move from Pisces to Aries back in 2010 and will be in the Cardinal sign until 2019.  This is a position of the heavens he hasn’t traveled since the late 1920’s-early 1930’s.  Those were tumultuous times, as are these.

september 21st—fish out of water?

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.

Yeah.

september 13th—the warrior gets his bow and arrows

On Saturday, September 13th, our resident Warrior moves from the fluid depths of Scorpio to the lofty blazing heights of Sagittarius—from Water to Fire.  Both are marked by feelings—one is just the receptive yin variety, the other, assertive yang.

Scorpio Mars is the strategist, while Sagittarius Mars just simply wings it.  We have spent the last month and a half ruminating over actions taken or not, swimming among the ghosts and goblins of our individual Underworlds and getting intimate with Father Time.  

Now it is time to come up for air.

Once in Sagittarius, he quickly goes into square aspect with Piscean Neptune and by the end of September he will be personal player in a grand-Fire-trine with Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries that reaches perfection on October 4th.  Hot!  Further along, our soldier revisits Libra energy through sextiles to Fall planets transversing there.

More on all that in the days to come, but first, let’s get to know the Archer a bit better.
