Saturn-to-Mars indicates a period when taking shortcuts or circumventing rules, laws, or regulations is ill-advised tell that to Trump! Check the chart's 12th cusp 24Tau06 and you'll see Trump 's natal Midheaven The Goal; Aspirations; Career conjoining wounded-wounding Chiron upon the 12th cusp of Politics and Karma also where raging star Algol resides.
Comparing both conjunctions and eras, we now have Saturn and Pluto energies combined in Airy Libra --on the mental or intellectual plane where theories cavort--and describing current trends a la Reagan, as previously noted but we will meet compressing Saturn-Pluto energies within the pragmatic Earth sign of Saturn-ruled Capricorn as of January , not the best portent in the social or financial areas of life. That more 'earth changes' and shifts will ensue seems a given to me, how about you? Especially since foreign and domestic corporatists have plundered and mined Earth's natural resources to our detriment.
Then as you see, the transiting North Node , the 'head of the dragon', is at 29Cancer , a critical 29th degree, and will soon conjoin the degree 27Can43 of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction's Prenatal Eclipse 'PE' which occurred in the 1 North Saros Series on July 20, This, I should inform you, is 'The Tower' Eclipse under which we now labor for a subsequent eclipse manifested in the 1 North series on August 11, 18Leo Or, tap one of the labels below this post.
You know, it always amazes me that many folk assume that God isn't watching events on planet Earth yet if they attended the sight of a Total Solar Eclipse they could sense His 'blink' if they had any sense at all! We become more aware of what is outdated in our lives, and we strive to find new perspectives and new ways to do things. The class distinctions, structure, and order that Capricorn finds appealing now seem to be too rigid. The freedom of the individual becomes far more significant to us. We strive to free ourselves from some of the restrictions, inhibitions, and limitations that now feel constraining rather than safe.
When Mercury is in Capricorn, our thinking is methodical and our focus is sober and practical. It is easier to concentrate on the task at hand under this influence. Our thought patterns and communication styles become more logical, orderly, and organized. We are more able to sort out what is relevant and essential. Realism enters the picture, our speech is no-nonsense, and precision becomes important to us. We need to be wary of becoming too rigid in our thinking. We may come across as cold or harsh. For some, there is a fine line between realism and pessimism.
When Mercury is in Aquarius, we are hungry for knowledge and open to new and original ideas. We begin to think outside of the box, and our thinking becomes more progressive and objective.
Our communication and thought patterns are spontaneous, somewhat fragmented, and liberal. This is a time when inventive thinking is at a peak. Moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius, romantic energy shifts from intense to buoyant. Romantic adventures, as well as a straightforward—even blunt—approach to love, are on the agenda. Gone are the intricacy and complexity of Venus in Scorpio.
Truth and higher meaning are things that take priority with Sagittarius. Mars feels at home in one of the signs that it rules, Aries, and therefore its power is boosted. Our energy is spontaneous, forward-looking, and even courageous under this influence. Our competitive spirit is well-developed, and our goal is to win! We are active, single-minded, and confident.
Our actions are direct—we instinctively find the fastest way to get from point A to point B. The shadow side of Mars in Aries is a tendency to be impatient, arrogant, impulsive, short-lived, unreflective, and self-centered. Jupiter entered Sagittarius on November 8th, , and transits the sign until December 2nd, Read more about the Jupiter in Sagittarius transit.
We approach money and personal possessions in new ways and learn how to free ourselves from certain material constraints. Innovative ways to make ourselves comfortable emerge. There can be abrupt changes with money, valuables, possessions, and income that lead to a reshuffling of priorities or values.
Income might come from non-traditional sources or ventures. New ways of doing business, as well as making, viewing, and handling money are likely. Income and the energy we put into making money can be variable. The urge to start fresh, to break free from restrictive attitudes or circumstances, to totally redesign an area of our lives or even our personalities , and to gain freedom through independence is strong with Uranus in Aries.
Moving from Scorpio to Sagittarius, romantic energy changes from intense to buoyant.
Sagittarius, of course, has its intense moments, considering it is a fire sign. Truth and higher meaning are focal points for Sagittarius. Venus in Sagittarius is forward-looking, not very specific, outgoing, and energetic. Freedom is most important in our love relationships now. We take a happy and enthusiastic approach to love, and we might find too much intensity or seriousness depressing.
We have a taste for the exotic as well as for adventure with Venus in Sagittarius.
This is a wonderful time for bringing more energy, warmth, and generosity to our relationships. A yearning for adventure and far horizons stirs in you now.
I felt good energy coming in my crown chakra. She may apply her nurturing ambassador-like quality with strategic motive for a specific purpose, especially to protect the sanctity of one's personal space and that of others and their choices to live outside the societal norm, as well as sacred places of specific purpose and places of privacy for spiritual healing.

Mars in Aries Fresh challenges and initiatives light your fires now, as a new cycle begins in your life — lots of energy, a powerful urge to be first or come out on top. An empowering New Moon in your sign in early May is a further boost to your positivity.
To roam, to wander and wonder, to seek freedom and go where no one has gone before — these things are deep and powerful longings. A time of romantic crusades, a universal love that might not be too particular. Sexual attraction, romantic activities, and fertility are favored. This is one of the best times to enhance a relationship. Excellent time for starting a new relationship, all things equal. Uncertainty about the desire to be close to someone.
Freedom versus closeness.

A desire to experiment in the romance department may be fleeting and ultimately unsatisfying or frustrating. Relationship ups and downs characterize this transit—a time when romantic mirages are more than likely. We see what we hope to see, rather than what really is. Be careful not to set yourself up for disappointment.
A strong desire for harmony and comfort fill us now. We may be moved to express our affections. We have large appetites for love and pleasure, and generosity of spirit as well. A congenial time when we appreciate diplomacy and socialize more readily. Communications between lovers may feel superficial or unsatisfying, and perhaps awkward.

During Void of Course Moon periods, it is generally wise to stick to routine rather than to begin new projects.
Void of Course in Horary Astrology: If you were asking a question and making a chart for the answer, as you do in Horary astrology, it is said that since the Moon is not looking forward to any more aspects in this sign, you would have to say that the answer is not forthcoming; any questions asked at this time would not come to pass. The following tables incorporate the modern planets, but some astrologers do not count Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto in void Moon calculations.
