Mars Stations Direct

“I think there is nothing in the world but mystery.” Kenneth Patchen

Mars is preparing to station direct on Wednesday at 23 degrees of Scorpio. One of the intriguing aspects of stationing planets is that for a few days before the station and a few days after, information can surface that represents a culmination of knowledge about what the retrograde period has meant for you. Mystery can abound.

As this retrograde period draws to a close do be willing to look at how broad you allow your future horizons to be. Do you need to re-energize your courage to move forward?  How willing are you to pursue adventure in your life? Does your underlying philosophy of life in general need to be shifted to support a broader view?

Mars has traversed back through the sign of Sagittarius and  will station in Scorpio – the sign of mystery. Do be aware of your deeper knowing at this time. It can be a time of increased wisdom. Be aware of opportunities to resolve inner conflicts and unite dualities.

One of the Sabian symbols for this time is, “The king of the fairies approaches his domain.”


Sabian symbol quote by Lynda Hill

Notes on the Week Ahead

” A pile of rocks ceases to be a pile of rocks when someone contemplates it with the idea of a cathedral in mind.’ Antoine de Saint- Exupery
There is significant planetary activity in the upcoming week as Mars ingresses into Scorpio, Mercury stations retrograde, Jupiter stations retrograde and the Sun moves up to a conjunction with Pluto and squares Uranus.
Mercury will station on the 5th at 0 degrees of Aquarius and will retrograde back into Capricorn within a few days. The station in Aquarius makes it a good time to reconnect with old friends and collaborators. When it moves back into Capricorn (the 9th – the 25th)  it bodes well to review business and financial matters and plans. Tie up loose ends and finish tasks left undone.
Jupiter will station retrograde at 23 Virgo and will remain retrograde through the 9th of May. Use this time frame to review initiatives in health and daily routine and see if improvements can be made. See if it is possible to increase efficiency. If there is any work of a service nature that you have been considering this would provide a good time to reconsider or move forward with it.
It’s best during the upcoming week to keep focused on where you are heading in your own life and to not engage in conflict. There can be surprising events and more of a tendency for disagreements or misunderstandings  to occur suddenly. Make an extra effort to be clear in communication and do double check that any messages were received before assuming anything.
Providing extra down time will be beneficial.
As with the Kings and Queens of old, an Astrologer or Tarot Card Reader should be a trusted ally on your life’s path.
