Mars is retrograde: March 1st, 2014 to May 19th, 2014.
As this week goes on, the intensity will increase & get more personal in nature as Mars continues to move backwards into alignment with the Pluto/Jupiter-Uranus T-Square… It will eventually join the “sky-party” in a few weeks & create a configuration called a “Grand Cross”… The “easy way” to describe this kind of chart pattern would be to paint a very “doom & gloom” scenerio… That may be partially true as this energy has tremendous power & potential for destruction & warlike forces.
First of all, this new “planetary configuration” that will be formed (Grand Cross) is actually more of a “pressure release” mechanism the universe uses… Work with me on this… If you jam a pen into a bottle of soda, the pressure is intense and the soda squirts out with great force… That is what is currently happening with this T-Square… All of Pluto & Jupiter’s energy is being directed at an unstable & explosive Uranus… This is a dangerous placement for sure…
But then we have “good ol’ Mars” come ridin’ in… (just like a cowboy)… And he’s there to save the day… (CHEER)… When Mars comes into alignment, it is like it pops three more holes into that soda bottle so the energy is diffused into 4 equal parts… The energy is released in a more peaceful & controlled manner… Ahhh…
The trouble is, that Mars is retrograde at the moment… It can act like a soldier that gets his orders confused… Mars can be super aggressive sometimes, and this can lead to taking impulsive or reckless actions… If this energy “goes too far” it can lead to wars… And it could also lead to the “removal” of unstable world leaders (or those that threaten world leaders) in either political or violent ways… (just tellin’ you what the charts are sayin’)…. But before you get all weirded out and starting to strap on your tin-foil hats… There is one little bit of info that you need to know.
The energy I am talking about is not new… In fact, Mars moved into this alignment back in early January and the sky certainly did not fall… Although, not to make light of tragedy, you may not have noticed but quite a few of the top banking (Jupiter/Saturn) officials have been falling from very tall buildings over the past few months… The energy we are dealing with is a “Cardinal” configuration, so this energy is FINANCIAL in nature… Personally, I get the vibe that the global leaders are afraid their secrets will come out & be exposed… (Saturn Retro)… That’s why I have been mentioning buying gold & silver… (not gold or silver stock)… The kind you can hold in your hands!!
So who needs “Soap-Opera’s” when we have the stories the planets are telling us… This is how the ancients (Greeks & Romans) told the stories of what was “written in the stars”… This is rough energy, but on the “backend” side of the charts, the energy is really fantastic… Just remember, with this much power in the chart, it also empowers us to make incredible progress in our own lives… It’s there to help us rise above the barriers & obstacles that are put in our way… It forces us to deal with life in a more pragmatic way…
When it’s all said & done, this energy is there to help usher in a new era because the “old system” just isn’t working very well anymore.
