Mars Sextile Saturn

There's a plodding, methodical rhythm to this energy. Mars / Saturn aspects lack the flash & dazzle of Uranus contacts, The result is a dogged concentration of effort that yields productive results, clear & steady progress, structured & organized outcomes, worthwhile & enduring material goals. Saturn helps you methodically manage life & leans heavily on traditional strategies -- so you know what to do & what to expect.

Where Saturn is involved, there's always a set of routines from a well-established playbook to follow. It's just a matter of going through the steps & keeping at it. With this energy around to back you up, you can get a lot of organized, tedious, highly structured work done. It's a matter of translating worthwhile, enduring, steady results from the energy you invest.

Mars in Astrology: Basic Stuff | Quick Notes on Mars In Astrology

Careful planning & Saturn's notorious frugality & demanding attitudes can help with that. One thing about Saturn, you feel obligated (or coerced) into following his lead. There's no way to say "no" to him. Trying that only makes things worse. If you're working on something fairly complex, you may want to map out a schedule complete with checkpoints & milestones to track your progress.

But if you're just using this on day-to-day stuff, set your priorities, plan your moves carefully, concentrate on one thing at a time. A To-Do List, even one in your head can keep you rounded up & moving forward. Don't take side-trips, get distracted or spread yourself too thin. Your best strategy now is to keep your eye on the prize & focus on what's important now. In a choice between being the tortoise or the hare, be the tortoise.

Spend carefully. Manage your assets & energy. Be efficient. Make the most of what you have on hand. Don't be too ambitious. Concentrate on what's possible & reasonable. Saturn sextile Mars is a workhorse, not a racehorse.

Light Reading & Open Articles

Mars & Mars Energy -- The power behind the Sun's ambitions & desires ---> You have a Mars Sign ---> You've probably heard the term "Sun Sign." And if you know more Astrology than just the basics, you know all the planets are included in your horoscope & they all have "a sign" -- the Zodiac sign they occupied at the moment you arrived. The Sun just gets all the press. So your natal Mars has a sign relevant to your personality. It describes how you use physical energy, the kind that gets you from one place to another.

* Mars in General -- Your Inner Self of Action, Initiative and Self-Assertion ---> Red is a Mars color! ---> Symbol of energy and ambition ---> In Astrology, Mars represents physical energy, your ability to take action and your instincts for self-assertion and aggression. Mars supports your independence and your ability to set goals and achieve them. It is associated with overt sexual energy and competition in general. The Inner Self fueled by Mars energy knows how to take care of itself, how to get what it wants and when situations call for force and willpower. Mars energy wants you to feel safe, capable, confident and strong.

* What Does Mars Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Red is Mars' color!! ---> The symbol of force and power ---> Mars, fiery red, the favorite prop of science fiction legend, named for the intense, passionate mythological god of war, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's capacity to take action, show independence and self-assertion, pursue goals and ambitions, use physical and sexual energy, and exert his force and willpower in situations of competition and conflict. As the metaphor for the personal use of force and power, it shows how you make your presence known and how you "take care of Number One" ....

* My Notes About Mars in Astrology ---> Mars, the fifth element in your horoscope ---> * After Venus, Mars is the next closest planet to Earth. It is located between Earth and Jupiter. It is the fourth planet from the Sun. * Mars takes about 2 years to circle through the Zodiac. It stays in each sign about 6 weeks, but it retrogrades once every two years. That retrograde cycle can keep it in a single sign for up to six months -- or, of course, it can divide its retrograde path between two different signs. * Starting with Mars, the planets can be in any sign of the Zodiac.

More about Mars

* The Drumbeat of Mars -- Marching to His Own Militant Music ---> Fire energy ---> The glyph for Mars in Astrology is the well-known symbol for male in biology. Even in this stylized representation, it is phallic, sexual and blatant in what it depicts ... and anyone who has ever seen one of the real thing it signifies recognizes it at once. Mars, and the energy associated with it, is assertive, aroused, fired-up, on the prowl and ready for action! No wonder it has such a formidable (and sometimes forbidding) reputation among the more timid and peace-loving souls of the Zodiac. Mars' Prime Directive is to advance, to conquer ....

* Mars: Ruler of Aries -- Symbol of Your Active, Assertive, Energetic Self ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color! ---> Mars shows passion, initiative and self-assertion. ---> Mars, fiery red, the favorite prop of science fiction legend, named for the intense, passionate mythological god of war, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's capacity to take action, show independence and self-assertion, pursue goals and ambitions, use physical and sexual energy, and exert his force and willpower in situations of competition and conflict. As the metaphor for the personal use of force and power, it shows how you make your presence known ....

* The Mars / Aries Person -- Aries Signatures in a Horoscope ---> Red is a Mars / Aries color. ---> Combinations of Mars / Aries energy ---> Mars / Aries energy can be seen in a number of different patterns or placements in a person's Natal Chart. All the following combinations give the Mars / Aries energy of spunky independence and self-assertive ambition to anyone who owns them, but some are not obvious to the non-astrologer.
