Mars in Aquarius 2016
From NOVEMBER 9 through DECEMBER 19 2016, Mars transits the sign of Aquarius. Remember, Mars’ sign by transit shows how people will respond to anger in others or how they will respond when angered themselves. Mars shows how we express our energies in general— and anger is a manifestation of energy. Mars in Aquarius is plagued with CONTRARINESS! People, including ourselves, will do just the opposite when annoyed or provoked. Not much can be accomplished when tempers flare and Mars is influenced by this willful sign! Try not to tap into this type of energy when you sense that others are being uncooperative. It can snowball into outdoing each other with uncooperativeness.
As I reviewed my personal journals, I found several of the Mars in Aquarius cycles to be very stimulating. It was stimulating because I found an unusual idea to pursue, an innovative interest or subject that fired up my mental energies. During one cycle, I studied and gave Ray Readings (the study of the 7 Rays as applied to the Soul-Personality-Mental-Astral-Physical bodies). Aquarius is a sign that is naturally gifted with the ability to “People Read”— the ability to size up, analyze and dissect human behavior. Studies that enhance this ability were quite intriguing under this transit. Aquarius enjoys doing the atypical, the controversial and extraordinary. It is a sign that likes to gain attention in this manner. During this earlier cycle, I partnered with another astrologer to provide this counseling service on the Seven Rays. It was unique and it set us apart from other astrologers. It was a perfect resolution of the Mars in Aquarius energies. In 2007, I developed my medical lecture materials for an educational conference, especially developing my Common Cures handouts. This proved life-altering in my medical studies.
During another Aquarian cycle, I took a radical action. I impulsively booked a flight to Germany to see the Berlin Wall as it was coming down. While this sounds simple enough, it was done in pure Aquarian style. I had never traveled to Europe, much less a non-English speaking country, and I had never traveled alone. Against all the advice to the contrary from my friends, I was determined to do what I wanted to do— to be a part of the Berlin Wall event!
During the last Mars in Aquarius cycle (late March through April 2005), the radical behavior of Aquarius took the form of activism whereby I fought for the rights of the local farmers at the Silver Spring farmers market. This became a heated battle but a battle that I eventually won with the support of friends, neighbors, local merchants and historical society. For the first time in my life, I took part in town meetings and advisory boards. I gained such a reputation for my speaking abilities that I was asked to be a spokesperson for other groups.
In terms of the negative side of Mars in Aquarius, I found that, when I was pushed, felt unappreciated or bullied, I would react in a very contrary, passive-aggressive manner. Since I have Mars conjunct Uranus natally, I am struggling to overcome this trait but there have been many examples of when I rebelled and politely refused to do something because I was angered while Mars was in Aquarius.
When we feel angry and provoked, Mars in Aquarius will upset the biochemical cell salt, Natrum Muriaticum, or Salt. Common table salt is too crude to be assimilated efficiently. Excessive use of table salt can cause skin disorders, high blood pressure and it hardens the arteries. As a cell salt it impacts the efficient distribution of fluids in the body. Too much water in the body can cause edema, watery colds and drowsiness. Too little water in the body can cause cracking joints, eczema, dryness, constipation and inflammations.
During the 2009 transit in Aquarius, I was suffering from muscle fatigue and soreness. This was definitely a problem with excess salt in my diet. I do not add salt but it is in many pre-made foods.
In January-February 2011, I received a lot of recognition from my appearance on FOX, regarding the 13 signs of the Zodiac. I do not think that I was particularly contrary but I did challenge astronomers on television.
My car and cell phone died and they were replaced by wonderful newer ones.
