A brief cookbook:
Following on from yesterday’s general blog on Mars moving into Aries, I thought it might be helpful to pin down what this transit might mean, when it lands on parts of your charts that are directly connected with relationships. This includes the 5th, 7th and 8th houses, as well as Venus and Mars!
Keep in mind that:
- All transits awaken whatever and wherever they land on in our chart. How they do it, depends on the nature of the transiting planetary energy. Knowing this can help us work with the energies to create the required changes.
- Transits cannot create something that isn’t already in the chart.
- The house that the planets being transited are in, is where possible changes are likely to occur.
- Key relationship houses are the 5th, 7th and 8th house - particularly the descendant!
- Venus and Mars are key relationship planets, as they represent what we value (Venus), and how we go after what we value and desire (Mars).
Mars by transit awakens and activates whatever it aspects. In Aries it does this in a fast, direct, spontaneous, playful, willful, energetic, impatient and competitive manner. It only stops when it comes up against a wall and even then, it can easily try to ram it’s horns into the wall a few times, before it comes to a standstill!
Between now and September 8th, the drive to take action in the natal house Mars travels through in your chart, will be very powerful. Between September 9th and November 13th, when Mars is retrograde, you will have a chance to review your actions and make any necessary adjustments between November 14th and January 6th 2020.
Mars in Aries transiting natal Venus
This will awaken your inner core values, encouraging you to take some action to achieve whatever might enhance your self-esteem. This includes evaluating who you value in your life, and whom you feel valued by, as well as who no longer resonates with you. The area of life this can most easily happen in, depends on the house placement of Venus in your chart.
Mars in Aries transiting natal Mars
At some point over the next 6 months you’ll experience your Mars return, which is likely to kick-start into action any dormant aspects of your natal Mars. This can awaken your passion and desire, and it’s a wonderful time to start new projects in the area of your life described by the house your natal Mars is in. Old unresolved anger that is blocking you from pursing what and who you find desirable, may surface for you to process and release.
Mars in Aries transiting your natal 5th House and/or the ruler of the 5th
The Mars awakening happens in the area of your chart connected to fun, creativity, children and dating! Mars travelling through this house can support you in starting something new in any of these arenas, once it’s helped you clear out anything that is holding you back.
Mars in Aries transiting your natal 7th House and/or ruler of your Descendant
This is the angle and house most directly connected with one to one relationships. Mars can ignite attraction and desire, or impatience and conflict, if ongoing challenges have not been addressed.
Mars in Aries transiting your natal 8th House and/or ruler of the 8th
This is the house of intimacy and power dynamics. Mars can ignite immense passion, or power struggles. Whether the passion lasts beyond the transit, depends on lots of other factors in the chart.
Mars in Aries transits to the Midpoint Composite Chart
It’s well worth checking which house and planets in the composite chart will be woken up by Mars in Aries, as this will directly impact the relationship itself.
Wishing you all a wonderful day! MG
