Mars Square Jupiter

Mars square Jupiter is undeniably optimistic & confident -- especially when it comes to taking action you want to take. It can sure turn into a cautionary tale of "be careful what you wish for" & "there can be too much of a good thing." Sure, Mars square Jupiter can be fun & exciting -- until it turns on you. (If you've lived long enough to know what that's like, you have your own shudder-inducing memories.)

First off, you wind up with more work than any three people can manage & more complications than you bargained for -- ever. In fact, consider that a given. That just goes with the territory when Mars & Jupiter strike a devil's bargain with each other. Consequently, you wind up stressed / exhausted / stretched too thin & running hard just to stay even. Does this sound like a good idea? No, I thought not.

Mars Square Jupiter

Every so often, I try to make excuses for Jupiter squares. They definitely have a different feel to them than squares from some of the other planets. By itself, Jupiter represents good stuff -- wealth, abundance, expansion, education, travel, generosity. Eyes light up whenever Jupiter come around, passing out favors. Jupiter squares usually mean "too much of a good thing." You wonder how that's possible.

Well, it can be. Jupiter squares show extreme behavior, excessive activity, going overboard -- & it affects whatever the aspect partner represents. Ego, ideas, pleasure, emotions, imagination. Still sound like it's all fun & giggles? Well, right now, we're coping with a square between Jupiter in Capricorn & retrograde Mars ... in Aries. The second of three we'll be handed in this retrograde cycle.

Mars Square Jupiter

Mars square to Jupiter is an energy of risky, impulsive action. You leap before you look ... & don't think things through. You don't plan well, or plan ahead ... or consider the possible downside & consequences of what you may face if things go pear-shaped.

Sometimes you're caught up in your own excitement. Other times, you just react ... & then have to live with an outcome you might have avoided with a little more time, self-control & common sense.

Jupiter squares aren't know for providing much of those assets. Mars is impulsive in the first place. Put them together & you've got a recipe for anything from intense thrills to total disaster. Choose carefully!!

Mars Square Jupiter

The energy of Mars square to Jupiter is impatient, irritable and impulsive. The more you try to damp it down and behave yourself, the more intense and extreme it will get. Your anger may be totally justified -- and your decision to do something about it long overdue. But that may not matter if you fly off the handle and hurt yourself -- or someone else.

This is not an energy that plans well -- or wastes time thinking things through. It takes too many risks. It doesn't worry about "the consequences" -- and it can put things in motion that end up producing results you totally did not intend ... or consider. That's always a danger when the extreme potential and reactions of stressed Jupiter hit the aggression and hot temper of stressed Mars.

About Mars
From the Blogs and Ezines

From EDA: Mars ---> Red is a Mars color!! ---> Everyday Astrology February 6, 2020 Mars ---> In Roman mythology, Mars was the God of War, ranked second only to Jupiter, the King of the Gods. To follow the symbolism, once you have enough individual power to assert yourself and affect your surroundings, and enough abundance to feed and support yourself, and the assurance that you deserve to be here, you can turn your attention to other matters.

It widens your cultural connections by showing you how other people conduct their lives and how you can incorporate foreign concepts and ideas into your own ways of thinking and living.

* What Does Jupiter Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Jupiter rules Sagittarius, the last sign of autumn -- November 22 to December 21. ---> Opening up your world ---> Jupiter, colorful and immense, dwarfs the Earth by comparison. It is named for the mythological King of the ancient Roman Gods. (The Greeks called him Zeus.) In Astrology, it symbolizes your philosophical foundations, your urge to expand beyond existing intellectual,

* Jupiter Retrograde -- Expanding Your Latest Creation ---> Jupiter's interests ---> Jupiter represents your philosophical beliefs and ethical principles. It describes your ability to share authoritative knowledge ... the wisdom you've gained both through academic study and through the simple experience of living. These are the lessons you teach through the example of your own life by the ideas that guide your choices and the actions you take as a result.

Jupiter: The Gifts of a Lifetime ---> Jupiter is about seeing life from The Big Picture perspective ---> It's about values ---> I could make a case that The Sun, The Moon, and every planetary placement in your chart are about values. The Sun is about self-identity ... the values you want to embody and display by being the person you truly are. The Moon is about family values ... emotional values ... habits, instincts, and legacies from your past. Mercury is about intellectual values and interests.
