Sun in Aquarius / Mars in Aries
The Aquarius / Aries sextiles
With the Sun in Aquarius, you (and everyone else in the world) are concerned with having more freedom in your life, more opportunity to live by your own rules and standards. You are more interested in long-term dreams ... and the support of your best ideals.
You are more adventurous, compassionate, and imaginative, willing to take more risks -- and dream on a much grander scale than in the ambitions your normal visions present.
This combination is most willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done, but the first impulse to accomplish this is on the generation of ideas and strategies that don't deal with dynamite and Molotov cocktails.
While this energy is looking for change and revolution, it's willing to do the groundwork and move things along in an orderly fashion -- as long as it sees progress happening fast enough to suit it. The revolution you'll most likely accomplish now involves positive, well-conceived, even inspired, long term changes ... not debris, rubble, and blood in the streets.
Mars in Aries brings the incredible energy of raw fire power to the highly oxygenated atmosphere of the air sign, Aquarius ... and between the two of them, they can generate power enough to light the world -- or burn it down, if they're of a mind to.
Fortunately, right now, they're intent on benign purposes and constructive results. The emphasis, while it is emphatically still on change, is on new building efforts and creative benefits.
