Sun in Aquarius sextile Mars in Aries
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.
Notice there are a couple of caveats in what I just said, however. Neither of these energies deals with frustration quietly -- or calmly. This is not a combination that will sit and gently seethe under pressure. If it gets upset, everyone in a five mile radius will hear its complaints ... and rue the moment this feisty dynamo spun into high gear.
Take a close look now at what you want to accomplish with this energy. You've got plenty of time to accomplish things that contain this wonderfully productive force as part of its "natal chart." And when you're ready to act, don't dawdle.
This energy won't be any kinder to your hindrances than to those from outside conditions. It's also a fairly rare aspect, this Aquarius Sun / Aries Mars combination. A quick look back through time turned up January, 1955, as the last time it happened. So ... take a deep breath, and get going.
