AQUARIUS - "I KNOW, THEREFORE I AM."
MARS KEYWORDS: Energy, aggressiveness, action, initiative, impulsiveness, adventurous, physical energy, courage, assertiveness and rash.
Mars in Aquarius will last from May 15, 2018 until August 12, 2018 and then from September 11, 2018 until November 15, 2018. This is due to a Retrograde (Rx) period of Mars from June 26, 2018 until Mars turns Direct on August 27, 2018. So this zig-zag back and forth through the sky is what is causing Mars in Aquarius to last so long. Needless to say, it's going to be a long road of chaos, protests, riots and the like.
Coupling Mars assertion and drive with Aquarius we get an intense desire for freedom and independence because Aquarius is THE MOST freedom-loving sign. This can turn into quite a rebellion when Mars in coupled with Aquarius so watch the news for rebellious outbursts from the masses, groups, friends, memberships, sororities, fraternities, children's organizations or networking sites. This energy can easily morph into riots when the critical mass is reached.
Keep in mind, before this years Mars in Aquarius double-transit, the last time Mars entered Aquarius was on November 9, 2016 just one day after the election of President Trump. Do you remember how I wrote about the rebellion-hellion that would be taking place? And do you remember the rebellion-hellion that took place? That transit of Mars in Aquarius lasted until December 19, 2016. Do you remember how crazy that time was with people in the streets protesting his election 'as if' they could throw fits, burn some cars, break windows, wear black outfits and make the election go away? Do you remember how Lady Gaga thought she had some sort of magical clout that she could protest outside of Trump Tower and turn the election results around with her bullhorn? I remember thinking, these people do not get it, the pancake had flipped with Pluto in Capricorn and they had better get use to the results because this man is going nowhere. And now it is two (2) years later and people still think they are going to turn the election around. Folks, it isn't going to happen. That election was the halfway point of Pluto in Capricorn and the pancake (transformation) occurred. The pancake flipped and the election was over. It is O.V.E.R., OVER! Two years later people are still talking the 25th Amendment and it isn't going to happen.
I have had people get mad at me for writing this according to how I interpret the Astrology, but I won't change it. Pluto in Capricorn flipped the pancake and it's a done deal. I had the same kind of feedback when I wrote the Pluto in Capricorn write-up in 2008 about the people in the streets, fists pumping and dark people, and then when it occurred, people understood what I was saying. That Pluto in Capricorn post will remain until the year 2024 because it is a 16 year transit. That's why I wrote it in 2008.
This Mars in Aquarius energy has that same energy of people protesting in the streets and it will finally simmer down when Mars moves into Pisces at the end of this Mars in Aquarius transit, which will be after November 15, 2018. Interestingly enough, that will occur nine (9) days after the mid-term elections on November 6, 2018. Right now you hear both sides hoping for a RED WAVE or a BLUE WAVE and there is definitely going to be a BIG WAVE and it is going to cause one side to retreat. You will see that retreat occur as Mars in Pisces takes that fishtail and head off in the other direction. Mars in Pisces is strong in the water but not on land. Mars in Pisces is definitely not a strong position and is considered the weakest position for Mars. What will be excessive during Mars in Pisces will be emotions, sadness, depression, neurotic tendencies and brooding. I think counselors, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists and the like need to be ready for the BIG WAVE of sad people because it is coming.
So back to the previous Mars in Aquarius that occurred during the election of 2016. Merely changing genders in the outcome of the election was not a transformation (Pluto in Capricorn) it would have just been a change in genders. Something absolutely drastic and transformative was going to take place and Donald J. Trump was that drastic change (transformation). You see folks, Mars in Aquarius along with Pluto in Capricorn was not just occurring in the United States, it was occurring all over the world. Who else would have made such a drastic and transformative impact (Good or bad) not just on the United States, but on the whole world? I am not defending, denying, supporting or arguing for or against anyone here, so keep your wits about yourself, your emotions in check and your Astrology hats on. I'm merely posing the questions to you and pointing out what occurred. I can't say any of this didn't happen, when it did. Now fast forward through all of the changes so far since the election and when Mars was last in Aquarius, from November 9, 2016 until December 19, 2016. That was a tough pill to swallow for a lot of people who still have not recovered from the news. There have not only been a lot of changes in policy in the U.S. since that election, there have been a lot of changes world-wide since that election. It is a fact that cannot be denied no matter what channel you are watching or what political book you are reading this week.
Now let's consider the world-wide impact. Mars made his move into Aquarius on May 16, 2018 at 12:55 AM EDT, which was at 7:55 AM Jerusalem time. On Monday, May 14, 2018 the U.S. Embassy moved to Jerusalem. Do you remember the protesting and rioting that occurred? President Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu both knew, of course there will be protesting and probable rioting, so they may as well bite the bullet and get all of it over with now. The other U.S. President's probably delayed moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem because of the repercussions, but the current leadership says, "Let's do this crazy thing and get the fighting over with, the quicker the better."
Aquarius by nature does not like to be told what to do at any length or by any stretch, so when push comes to shove, you can expect rebellion-hellion and a few things tipped over, knocked over or shoved over. Mars in Aquarius says, "Oh yeah, well watch this!" Mars in Aquarius is a revolution, but there does not have to be rioting. Aquarius rules lightning, so while it is easy to predict how far away you are from where lightning strikes after you hear the thunder, I guarantee there is nothing predictable about Mars in Aquarius. This is the placement of 'the reformer', so you can expect that this will 'not be' business as usual. Everything is going to change and Mars in Aquarius will see to it. The fixed sign of Aquarius will not take "no" for an answer. Mars in Aquarius will get very very pushy with what it knows. After all, the motto is "I know therefore I am."
Aquarius rules the house of the employer's money, which is why you will probably see more rebellion with regard to wages, especially the minimum wage. So watch for these kind of topics or rebellious outbursts from these groups of people. Aquarius not only rules the employer's money, it also rules the military and government salaries, as well as the salaries of corporate CEO's and executives, civil servants and politicians.
Let's also keep in mind that Uranus, the natural ruler of Aquarius, moved into Taurus on Tuesday, May 15, 2018. Taurus is the sign that rules our self-worth, personal finances, personal possessions and our morals and values. Everything tied to our finances is based upon our self-worth. Our personal financial cages are going to get rattled with Uranus in Taurus and for many people, this is going to be a very Good thing and it's about time. For others, they will find unusual and unconventional ways to make money. Still for others, there will be a loss or shake-up with their money due to mishandling, bad behavior or much needed lessons to be learned. Read more on this in the Uranus in Taurus write-up. Just know that Uranus is the planetary ruler and we have a lot of Aquarian energy occurring including the South Node in Aquarius.
Mars in Aquarius wants to do things their own way and will do so whether you like it or not, which is purely based on intelligence and not necessarily stubbornness. Many of us will learn through our own mistakes during this time, which isn't such a bad thing because that is really how things are invented and discovered. So don't get down on yourself if something doesn't work the first time around because you will have learned something in the end. This Aquarian influence is the most innovative and inventive sign of the zodiac. Innovation and invention is a process, which includes the making of mistakes only to discover . . EUREKA! The mistakes turn out to be a Good thing, not a bad thing. Mistakes rule out other things, so make certain you see mistakes as a gift and not a curse.
There may be a stronger attraction to electrical, mechanical or some type of engineering based gadget during this Mars transit because Aquarius rules electricity, lightning and mechanical things that are powered by electricity.
This Aquarian influence also rules the circulation of blood through the body. Aquarius is the 'circulator' which is why you should circulate yourself within groups of people, as well as circulate your blood, as in exercise through circulation. If you have or may have an issue with your circulation, this will likely be the time when there will be an issue unless of course you take proper precaution to keep your blood healthy and in motion (circulating).
