During the next week and a half or so, till around the 28th of April 2014, Mars is backing into the Jupiter/Uranus/Pluto t-square, creating this much anticipated grand cross in the Cardinal Signs. It’s very very game on! A very energetic time ahead. Don’t hide away; launch rockets (but read the safety instructions and take care, please).
This cross describes a maverick energy of sorts. Someone born at this time is quite untameable and unstoppable. It represents an irrepressible self-determination that may manifest as rebellion, or bold, self-righteous and sudden actions in the pursuit of some desired objective, or the defense or promotion of an ideology (Jupiter). Adventurousness and activism can be a positive manifestations of this energy; but in its exuberance and excitability this energy can be reckless thrill seeking, or provocative self-will, like spoiling for a fight. When Mars combines with Pluto in a hard aspect there is incredible tenacity and determination in the face of obstacles, so great feats of effort and endurance may occur, but in extreme cases this ‘tenacity’ can manifest as violence. It is a time to be careful and not allow tensions and antagonisms to escalate into sudden rages.
See the image of the ephemeris for around 23 April 2014. Mars is located at 13 degrees Libra, Jupiter at 13 degrees Cancer, Uranus at 13 Aries, and Pluto at 13 Capricorn. Wow!
It should then come as no surprise, considering that Mars is now merely upping the heat on a process that the slower moving Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto have been locked into for a while, that the man of the moment on the world stage, one who’s causing Obama & co. so much distress, should have his Sun located at 13 degrees Libra. See Putin’s chart (even if the birth time is less than completely certain, the Sun’s degree is likely to be correct).
