Mars in Pisces

Mars in Pisces is a complex energy with plenty of pitfalls to consider. First of all, it's an indicator of taking action secretly, privately, covertly. This can certainly describe a desire to maintain strict confidentiality about your work -- for any number of legitimate reasons ... including everything from simple shyness to outright paranoia.

But, you may also be acting out of anxiety, phobic responses, or even obsessions -- for the darker sides of this energy include "acting compulsively" -- or even insanely. It can indicate you are acting without all the information you need -- or perhaps acting on incorrect information.

It indicates taking action indirectly or obliquely because of -- or despite -- fears you may not want to acknowledge. It can also indicate sabotage and self-sabotage -- and being blocked by something you can't define, describe, or "get a grip on," something nebulous, mysterious, or intangible.

In other words, something sneaky or unknown may be happening behind the scenes and out of sight that hinders your action or that will cause you to act differently once all the pieces to the puzzle reveal themselves.

So, while the creative ideas may be fabulous -- the action you take at this time may not do them justice. Or you may be reluctant to openly reveal just what is going on -- for some reason. Or someone else's behavior may undermine your efforts.

* 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.

* My Notes About Mars ---> 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.

Mars in Pisces

Mars moved into Pisces early Saturday morning. It will remain there until January 18, 2002. With Mars in Pisces, actions and attitudes are creative, peaceful, retiring, visionary, and transcendent. People are compassionate, sensitive, idealistic, imaginative, and sympathetic. This energy is "active" regarding artistic interests, personal creativity, the need to retreat into meditation and memories, and the ability to contact the wise resources of the subconscious mind.

There is also emphasis on spiritual faith, mystical interests, issues of remorse and regret, the desire for forgiveness and atonement, a sense of "merging" into contact with the "Divine," and more direct attention goes to matters of personal psychological growth, healing, and therapy.

There is further emphasis on experience with altered states of consciousness, matters of self-understanding, sacrificial service, work carried on "behind the scenes," and the desire for seclusion, isolation, and privacy.

Under stress, people may act in ways that are helpless, hypersensitive, confused, neurotic, and hysterical. Their ambitions may be vague, impractical, vacillating, disorganized, unrealistic, secretive, obsessive ... and in extreme cases, fraudulent and self-destructive.

The positive energy of this position certainly is appropriate to the holiday season. Unfortunately in the time right around Christmas itself, Mars will have moved into a T-square configuration with the already difficult Saturn / Pluto opposition. Given that Mars / Saturn squares are notoriously frustrating, often producing (and indicating!) great resentment, that Mars / Pluto squares are physically hazardous and dangerous, and that afflicted Mars in Pisces is known to be "sneaky and underhanded," this does not bode well at all for a peaceful, trouble-free Christmas season.

Many of the less attractive qualities of Mars may be much in evidence during a good part of its travels though this sign this year. The advice from here is: don't let your imagination run away with you regarding "what might happen," but do be extremely cautious and err, if at all, on the side of safety.

Basic Stuff About Mars ---> About Mars ---> * 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 complete its 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.

* 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 in Aries -- Action with Intensity, Initiative, and Courage ---> Red is a Mars color ... and an Aries color!! ---> Mars in Aries ---> Mars shows your ability to take assertive action; your capacity for aggression; your outward sexual expression; your use of energy, force and willpower to achieve your ambitions and desires; your ability to be direct and independent; and your competitive spirit.

* 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.
