The Mars/Antares/Saturn Conjunction

This brilliant grouping of heavenly bodies can be seen rising in the east-southeast around midnight CST.

Mars – 8 degrees, 54 minutes of Sagittarius (mars 8 s_sagcol-18 54)

Antares 9 degrees, 47 minutes of Sagittarius (α 9 s_sagcol-18 47)

Saturn  15 degrees, 58 minutes of Sagittarius (saturn 15 s_sagcol-18 58)

High and potentially dangerous drama to occur under this conjunction of two planets and a fixed star.

Red Antares is a fixed star, a higher octave of Mars, associated with such Mars attributes as aggression, heat, and impulsiveness.  Under Mars and Antares, events of a martial nature could occur and escalate.  A combative streak is evident in people and events.  The fact that Mars (the ancient malefic) is stationing retrograde near Antares increases the explosive potential in people and events; in frequency and magnitude; since Mars is up close and personal during this time.

The probability of terrorist attacks, domestic and international, is quite high, as is political violence around the USA presidential election.  Antares is within one degree of opposition to the USA natal Uranus in Gemini.  Mars is now stationing retrograde opposite that natal Uranus.  This is a volatile signature.

9/11 Planetary Signature In Play

A quick historical note is that the natal USA Uranus in Gemini was being contacted by Saturn in Gemini on 9/11.

Currently, Saturn (the other ancient malefic) is in orb as well, focusing and crystallizing the above potentials. In December 2015, Saturn opposed Uranus in Gemini in the USA natal chart and conjoined Antares in the sky.  Under these Saturn/Antares contacts, the international terror attack at San Bernardino, CA occurred, as did the dire escalation of domestic terror from the radical regressive American left.

Saturn then went on in January to make the first of three conjunctions to the natal USA Ascendant in Sagittarius.  A quick historical note is that the natal USA Ascendant in Sagittarius was being contacted by Pluto in Sagittarius on 9/11.

Back in the present, the second conjunction of Saturn in Sagittarius in the sky to the natal USA Ascendant (the retrograde conjunction) occurs on 06/02/16, very close to the crucial California primary, so that Americans of all stripes should expect and prepare for more of both kinds of terrorism, especially with a retrograding Mars now in the mix.  This dynamic will be in play through July and the Republican and Democratic Conventions and into August.

Sagittarius can be a loose cannon if not properly channeled. The mutable, fiery energy becomes wild, chaotic.  The problem is, it’s really not in the Jupiter-ruled Archer’s nature to be controlled. This half man, half horse creature will not be harnessed. Once his arrows start flying, great creation or great destruction, as well as great hilarity, can ensue, depending on whether the arrows fly true or willy-nilly.

Besides acts of war, terrorism, and political violence, the influence of Mars/Antares/Saturn in Sagittarius can be seen in the natural world in the activation of fault lines along the Ring of Fire. As well, it could be a major wildfire summer, especially in late July and August.

    1. Appreciate it, sister! Gotta figure out how to get traffic to it at some point. Right now, it’s smaller than a grain of sand on the world wide web. Need to get some content on it anyway.

  1. “The problem is, it’s really not in the Jupiter-ruled Archer’s nature to be controlled. This half man, half horse creature will not be harnessed.

    This is a magical description of the archetype! After The Fool (for lack of a better proper noun) visited Scorpio in the 8th house, it evolved further to Sagittarius in the 9th house. Your description harmonizes with the experience and energies gained from the highly transformative, self-effacing, inward seeking energy of Scorpio/8th as it evolved further into the fire energy of Sag/9th. With a completely transformed method of channeling energy, Sagittarius’ purpose in the zodiac could arguably be to shed the energy held within from its predecessor, Scorpio/8th. This energy is so overwhelming that Sag cannot help but, at times, recklessly part with it (and perhaps simultaneously enjoy and feed off of this arguably necessary process???). Each arrow is representation of the energy forced inward back in the 8th house as it explodes and uncontrollably expands outward–kind of like the creation of a star. The big question is, though: is this a good thing? I guess it depends on what kind of energy was forced inward on the 8th, and does this sudden expansion of energy in the 9th provide a yin for the yang of the 8th, or does it merely blow everything in its way to the ground?–it has the ability to easily do both.

    Herein, I feel, we have the paramount of the Sagittarius archetype.

    Anyway! I just really liked what you said there and thought I would add more Sag written eye candy from someone who is quite familiar with both archetypes! To address the actual thesis of the article, I don’t feel that many can know how the Sag energy will shed the energy from its predecessor, but it will make itself known when it happens, that’s for sure! Hopefully there won’t be too much collateral damage….

      I don’t think you even needed the question marks there, because it would have worked as a statement of fact. Very insightful! For the most part, Sagittarius totally enjoys and “feeds off” the process you described. Saj might say to a person on the receiving end of one of his reckless arrows, with mock sorrow and a grin, “Oops! That hit you right between the eyes. It didn’t HURT did it? So sorry. Not.”
