On Transiting Mars

“In a shrinking world that needs a good shrink, we don’t need another theory of evolution. What we need is the practice of evolution.”* – Swami Beyondananda

In a well documented 1993 study a group of Transcendental Meditators moved to Washington DC as part of an experiment to see if their presence meditating together there could lower the crime rate. FBI statistics documented that it did. It also lowered the incidence of emergency room visits. The aspects this week as Mars opposes Pluto and squares Uranus are traditionally defined as a volatile and accident prone – a time where storms of all kinds can escalate. It bodes well to make an extra effort to remain calm, to be patient and wary of impulsive acts – personally and on the part of others – because that is where the accident prone aspect so often can come in. On the bright side there is often an abundance of energy to accomplish physical tasks if they are clearly defined.
