MARS IN CAPRICORN – FEBRUARY 16 through MARCH 30 2020
Mars is in the most efficient and organized sign when in Capricorn. While some signs focus upon anger and conflict, Capricorn emphasizes accomplishments and initiative. Capricorn represents an organized type of activity that enables the individual to work hard and accomplish a great deal.
During this period, we may find that there will be a great need to organize, restructure and handle problems with efficient maturity. Mars in any Cardinal sign (Aries-Cancer-Libra-Capricorn) can produce crises in which the individual must take charge and provide a solution through reorganization.
In reviewing my personal journals for the past periods when Mars transited Capricorn, I found myself dealing with poor organization with regard to my energies. If I scattered my energies and spread myself too thin, I experienced a burn-out. When I did not pace myself efficiently, I paid for this with energy depletion and exhaustion. It is not a problem to be scattered when Mars is in Sagittarius, as it was in December and the first half of January, but it is a serious problem when Mars is in Capricorn. This sign likes to have its time and energies properly budgeted.
My journals recorded periods when I was trying to help friends get organized, when I engaged in banking activities and trying to get the best investment rate, and when I was purchasing and working with computers and office machinery. In Capricorn, people find themselves either getting organized or being plagued with disorganizational chaos.
In previous Capricorn cycles, I often found myself stressed by health crises â€“ health issues for myself or for my cats! With crises in my life, I often felt my energies paralyzed. This type of immobility is common for the Cardinal signs. When a Cardinal sign cannot do anything about a crisis, it becomes indecisive, immobilized or gets stuck spinning its wheels. During this current cycle, the health of my cat was affected and a friend found herself handling the medical crises of her ex-husband.
During the Capricorn Cycle around January 2009, it seemed different as my life focused upon the ambition and achievement association with Capricorn â€“ I was busy with readings, I started teaching my online classes and I won by a substantial margin an election for International Liaison of the NCGR.
In 2018, I went through periods of feeling overwhelmed and depressed. I did travel to CT to lecture and Agneta was a lovely person. I connected her with Lars.
When activities are not paced well and when there are unresolved anger issues, health problems occur that will slow us down and make us pay attention to the details in our lives. If you take on too much, you will not accomplish much. Capricorn rules the homeopathic cell salt, Calcium Phosphate. When there are imbalances with this sign, there can be problems with mucosity, colds and flu, swollen glands or inflamed tonsils. This cell salt normalizes the gastric secretions. Poor assimilation of vitamins and minerals can ensue.
When acids and toxins accumulate, swelling occurs in the joints and any acidity can attract the cold virus. Stress can lead to colds, the flu and disturbances in the gall bladder. In the last Mars in Capricorn cycle, several of my friends and I did a liver/gall bladder cleanse that helped restore our energies.
NOTE: Since this is the cold and flu season, there are two suggestions at the onset: Take Alka-Salzer (without aluminum, only baking soda and calcium) at night on an empty stomach (so as not to interfere with digestion) or, as my physiotherapist in Berlin suggests ANDROGRAPHIS, easily purchased at health food stores. This is an herb used in Asia before antibiotics.
Probiotics are natural immune boosters. I also take Garlinase daily to thin blood and kill bacteria.
