Mars has entered its square to Saturn which will not complete until August 24th. We will feel this energy in the days before and after this aspect. As Mars turns retrograde September 9th, it is moving very slowly making ‘the God of war’ more powerful. This transit will repeat itself during Mar’s retrograde September 28- October 1. Issues that crop up now may come up again when this transit returns.
This will aspect your chart personally if you have cardinal planets: Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn at 25-26 degrees.
Mars-Saturn relates to frustration, blocked energy, aggravation, and potential arguments, accidents and disagreements as well as basic irritability. Mars is the God of War, and Saturn is the taskmaster, often acting like a brick wall stopping or slowing down our efforts.
Mars rules our energy and in some way it may seem restricted. This can be a period where we don't have the vigor we are accustomed to, and we may feel limited or slowed down in some way.
Mars-Saturn is often associated with cruelty in astrology or situations that seem this way.
The best way to deal with this transit is to proceed with caution, slowly and methodically as you go about your week. Used constructively, you may accomplish more than you think.
My advice is to use caution in your dealings with others as they can lash out if angered or irritated, and you could regret bringing up controversial subjects.
This transit will play out in the world as well as our personal lives and we can experience significant news-not that everyday isn’t significant at this time, but Mars-Saturn will be bigger than normal.
Saturn-Mars transits typically involve military and police affairs, and we can expect to see a great deal of upheaval over these few days. Unfortunately, violence would not be surprising.
