Report Period: October 17, 2009 until May 17, 2010

 

Thank you for ordering the Mars Retrograde Report!

You will note that the report provides the dates of influence as well as the houses involved. As you read the interpretations, note the houses that are involved when Mars links up with a natal or progressed planet. Those house "arenas of life" will also be in focus during the time period listed. If you are unfamiliar with the arenas of life represented by each of the twelve houses, and would like to explore the symbolism more deeply, you can access a table I have on my website with descriptions of each of the houses. Table of Houses 

Mars has a retrograde cycle only once every two years, two months (26 months).  Mars typically takes a little over a month or approximately 54 days to move through a sign when its motion is direct.  It will reside in a sign for 7-8 months when it is retrograde. Those 6 or more extra months that Mars will spend in one of your natal houses due to its retrograde cycle means that Mars’ energy is directed at the affairs associated with that arena of life as represented in your natal birth chart.

When a planet is retrograde, its energy is turned inward to reflect and process on how it’s functioning in your life. This is why when a planet is retrograde, it’s not a good idea to initiate new things pertaining to the symbolism of the planet. This is especially true when Mars is retrograde. Mars tends to put all plans and projects that involve others on hold. It’s energy is not flowing outward, it’s flowing inward. The retrograde period is a time for inward growth and for considering the realities of your life and how well those realities fit with the realities you desire to be experiencing.

Mars is our go-getter. It’s our expression of free will in our lives. It’s our Assertiveness Trainer. It’s our survival instinct. Mars is oriented toward self-determination and independence. It’s Mars’ job to ensure that we stand firmly in honor of what we believe and that we feel potent to shape our lives the way we desire them to be and to claim the experiences we desire to have. It’s Mars’ work to find the right tactical use of assertiveness and expression of frustration that come up as we claim mastery of our lives. When Mars isn’t well functioning in our birth charts, we feel frustrated, powerless, angry, depresses, lethargic, and impotent. While Mars is retrograde, we are given an opportunity to reflect on how well Mars is functioning in our lives and to identify what is within our control to change in our lives to ensure we are feeling powerful and potent.

Mars transits through each house and the contacts it makes with each planet in our birth chart symbolize a call to decisive action in some way. When it is moving forward, that often corresponds with a time of action in the outward world. When it is in retrograde motion its decisive action is focused instead on confronting ourselves and the realities of our lives directly and to honestly recognize how happy we are with our life and the direction it is going.

Mars current retrograde cycle occurs in the sign of Leo. Here, the focus of Mars’ energy is on creative self-expression, expressing your unique identity and integrity and identifying the activities and relationships that make your life a joy to live. Leo knows life as an adventure in creative self-expression. Leo says yes to life and enjoys shining its light for all the world to see. Leo is affirming and positive. Leo at its best lives from the assumption that heaven is on earth. Leo dances for the sheer joy of dancing while it sings, This little light of mine, I’m going to let it shine! And that’s exactly what this Mars retrograde in Leo is all about—celebrating the joys of life and identifying the changes you can make in yourself that will lead to more joy in your day to days.

May this report be of practical value to you during Mars’ retrograde cycle. My gratitude, and blessings are with you. Thank you for allowing me to be of service to you.

 

During Mars’ Retrograde Period, it will be moving through the first house of your birth chart:

Mars entered the first house of your birth chart on the 5th of October 2009 and due to its retrograde cycle will remain in your first house until May 18 2010. This indicates a significant period of initiation for you as Mars began a new two year cycle through your houses.  One way to think of this is that from an energetic perspective, you are ready to create a new reality or a new set of circumstances for yourself—independent, unprecedented and discontinuous with the past. For these reasons, Mars transit through the first house is necessarily a selfish time, oriented around the power of the will. It symbolizes a time of radically enhanced freedom. You may not yet know what you are doing or where you are heading, (especially since Mars will be spending several extra months in your first house due to its retrograde) but that’s okay, becoming aware of your power to direct the course of your life is the primary focus. Trust your instincts to guide you and remember that decisiveness and inspired action makes all the difference.

The first is the house Mars has a natural affinity with. While Mars is in your first house, you have a well of energy to tap that allows you to push harder and be more assertive and go the extra mile. Mars thrives on leading the way and pioneering new directions and/or engaging new activities that it feels passionate about. While in the first house, Mars is all about claiming what it yours, claiming your right to self-determine life your way. And while it's in the first house having confidence, affirming your belief in yourself and your ability to honor you is vitalizing. You can do it, so go for the gold.

You are entering a period where personal action may initially be met with some frustration as the combination of energy, resources, inclination, and opportunity for accomplishment will not come together so easily. Expect a lot of backing and filling on everyone's part in order to get things done and try not to press too hard or show too much impatience. Everyone is in the same boat, and you risk confrontation or even injury if you push too much without looking carefully at where you are and who you're up against. Slow and steady wins this race.

This sometimes-frustrating period of forced inaction or delays while Mars is retrograde may have had you chafing at the bit but as Mars resumes direct motion think of it as turning the corner and you will be able to get some forward motion again. Where you had to make do with other people's initiatives or no progress at all for awhile, you can again take the reins yourself and make it happen your way without intermediaries. Once things are back into your hands you will be better able to push for change and advancement in development of your financial resources in the coming months. Make your presence known and you will get results.

In Orb Oct 17 2009, Leaving Oct 17 2009

Entering Nov 21 2009, Exact Jan 21 2010, Leaving Mar 3 2010

You feel at one with yourself and the world as opportunities to spread your wings and fly arise during this time. This is a particularly good transit if you are involved in artistic or spiritual pursuits as this area of your life is favored right now. Make the most of the opportunities as they arise.

 

TRANSITING MARS QUINCUNX NATAL VENUS (1st House to 8th House)

Entering Feb 19 2010, Exact Feb 27 2010, Exact Mar 21 2010, Leaving Mar 30 2010

Expect to be pushed a little out of your comfort zone now and be ready to make some adjustments in your style of expressing yourself under this influence. Your style and tastes may be questioned by others; this is your chance to try something new. Sometimes you need to defend yourself, just to have the pleasure of making up afterward. Keeping a sense of humor is the perfect attitude for turning conflict into pleasure. Stretch yourself to find joy in new and different activities.

 

TRANSITING MARS SEMISQUARE NATAL URANUS (1st House to 3rd House)

Entering Feb 18 2010, Exact Feb 25 2010, Exact Mar 24 2010, Leaving Mar 31 2010

Just one wrong word, even a look, could be enough to set you off. No, you're not crazy, just ready to smash through convention, break the rules and find real freedom in your life. Rebellious feelings can be strong, even chaotic. But, if you are able to stay flexible and step back a bit, you can make this a time of discovery rather than outrage. You may fight anyone you think is trying to control you, which could be everyone today. The idea here is to put that fresh energy you've got into a creative channel where it will produce, rather than destroy. 

 

TRANSITING MARS SEMISQUARE NATAL PLUTO (1st House to 3rd House)

Entering Feb 18 2010, Exact Feb 25 2010, Exact Mar 24 2010, Leaving Apr 1 2010

Intense feelings may not be easy to hide now. The challenge is finding the best way to express them without going too far. Whoever may be making you angry is only the trigger, not the real cause. Look within far enough and you may find some core issues about power and control that are the real culprits. You can use this time to overcome incredible obstacles. Just make sure that these are the real obstacles that you want to move. Focus your activities to the most essential, and your force can be like a laser able to cut through anything.

 

TRANSITING PLUTO SEXTILE NATAL VENUS (6th House to 8th House)

In Orb Oct 17 2009, Exact Oct 21 2009, Leaving Dec 11 2009

There are opportunities to achieve your desires, particularly if you enlist the help of others. You can pull the strings from behind the scenes and no one will be the wiser, allowing you to piggy back on others positions to achieve your ends. Be subtle and not steamroll your way in. Make others feel that giving you what you desire is a good thing for them as well. You’ll likely have to take the initiative when opportunities present themselves but once things are underway they will take care of themselves without much further effort on your part. You may have opportunities to improve your relationship skills within your relationship with your partner. A creative project may also be in the offing.

 

TRANSITING SATURN OPPOSITION PROGRESSED SATURN (3rd House to 9th House)

In Orb Oct 17 2009, Leaving Oct 21 2009Entering Apr 20 2010

This is one of those times when you reap the harvest of past actions. If you have planted good crops in the past then the yield will be rewarding. However, if you have planted on rocky ground, then the crops may fail. Either way you find yourself having to put in the hard work to bring in the crop. If you are reaping rewards, there are extra responsibilities. If you are experiencing difficulties from past actions, you have to work hard to put things to right. You may sometimes feel that others are blocking your path. You would be wise to shoulder the responsibilities knowing that this is paving the way for a more stable future.

Both Uranus and Mercury are linked with the bright ideas of the intellect. This transit is a time of intellectual prowess. You will have an incisive and ingenious mind and will be open to progressive topics. Your opinions may be ahead of your time. Your thoughts and speech will be erratic but inventive.  It is an ideal time for writing or any communication that requires an agile mind or tongue. It is also a good time for studies, particularly in fields such as astrology, science, technology and electronics.

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCTION NATAL SATURN (9th House)

In Orb Oct 17 2009, Exact Oct 26 2009, Exact Jan 6 2010, Leaving Feb 11 2010

During this time all that is safe and familiar is subject to disruption. This can be quite disconcerting as you feel a lack of a firm footing in life. Jobs, homes, families, relationships, finances or anything which adds to your sense of security are likely to undergo a sudden change. Although this period can be quite destabilizing, by the end of this transit you will enjoy a newfound sense of freedom.

Entering Mar 17 2010, Exact Apr 4 2010, Leaving Apr 26 2010

You are purposeful and hardworking during this transit. You are capable of achieving your goals, and may receive recognition or promotion as others notice your efforts. Activities which may have seemed onerous in the past can now be tackled with patience and fortitude. It is a good period for making progress.

 

TRANSITING URANUS TRINE NATAL NEPTUNE (9th House to 4th House)

Entering Oct 28 2009, Leaving Jan 3 2010

This can be a wonderful creative time. Opportunities to take on creative or spiritual activities may come your way, and you will enjoy stretching your wings. This transit can offer times when you feel in tune with yourself and the world. You may also get the opportunity to spend more time with nature. Absorb the beauty of your surroundings and re-charge the batteries.

Entering Jan 29 2010, Exact Feb 2 2010, Leaving Feb 6 2010

Entering Apr 15 2010, Exact Apr 19 2010, Leaving Apr 23 2010

This can be a bit of a burdensome time when seemingly unnecessary tasks turn up that aren't really yours to contend with, or shouldn't be. Things turn up unfinished that you were sure you were through with and operations that never should have begun finally are shut down. It's a period of picking up pieces and putting things back into order so they'll run better next time. You may be more tired than usual, not from overexertion but from having your focus brought into disarray by unasked for distractions that sap your energy.

Entering Apr 15 2010, Exact Apr 19 2010, Leaving Apr 23 2010

Circumstances may not be cooperating with your way of seeing things. It's easy to be annoyed, feel challenged and want to strike out at the world. Success, though, comes from widening your perspective to adapt to the current situation. This is not about giving up principles, it's a way to expand your capacities to act and communicate effectively. Productivity can be high if you take this tack.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE NATAL MOON (7th House to 4th House)

In Orb Oct 17 2009, Exact Nov 3 2009, Leaving Nov 19 2009

Great ideas promise more satisfaction than it might seem they deliver right need and you might need to sort out what profits and what doesn't. This is a time to experiment and expect to try several times before you get it right. If you overshoot or undershoot the mark, don't be disappointed because you get another shot. Watch out for indulgence during this transit. You are likely to go all-out in an effort to achieve comfort and pleasure. The trouble is that you might lack the ability to balance your need for emotional security with your enthusiasm for the pleasures of life. The result can be a lackadaisical approach to life which irritates others and gets you nowhere fast. Tensions may also surface on the domestic scene.

Entering Apr 21 2010, Exact Apr 25 2010, Leaving Apr 28 2010

This is a great time to reach out, but be careful about reaching too far. There's an appropriate balance between taking on more in your life without becoming overwhelmed. Yes, you do need to push the limits, if only to make life interesting. But, the need for action can be so strong that you can overstate your case or just be itching to prove a point. The difference between asserting yourself and being aggressive is an important one to understand now.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SEXTILE PROGRESSED VENUS (7th House to 10th House)

In Orb Oct 17 2009, Exact Nov 5 2009, Leaving Nov 21 2009

Lucky in love and money is a good catchphrase for this transit. You have opportunities to enjoy a happy social life, good relations with loved ones and possibly improved finances. You are content and happy with harmonious relationships. You need to make the most of these opportunities rather than let them slip through your fingers.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SESQUISQUARE PROGRESSED JUPITER (7th House to 12th House)

In Orb Oct 17 2009, Exact Nov 6 2009, Leaving Nov 21 2009

This can be a time of frustration, accompanied by a feeling that you will never achieve your goals. The obstacles seem too high to climb over and too wide to walk around. You are forced to slow down and reassess your life's path. Although this is obviously a difficult period, benefits can come from the process of reassessment. Have some patience and you will discover the advantages of this period through the wisdom of hindsight.

 

TRANSITING PLUTO SEMISQUARE NATAL MOON (6th House to 4th House)

Entering Nov 6 2009, Exact Dec 21 2009, Leaving Feb 3 2010

You want to make major changes either in your emotional life or on the domestic scene, but either something or someone else is blocking your progress. The lesson is patience. You would be better off letting matters settle down for a while.

 

TRANSITING MARS TRINE NATAL MIDHEAVEN (1st House to 10th House)

Entering Apr 25 2010, Exact Apr 29 2010, Leaving May 3 2010

This is a good period of time to seek out and accept help and cooperation in career projects and any endeavor concerning your life direction or social roles. By being magnanimous, you will seem all the more accomplished for it and will attract support and praise for your efforts. You could actually do nothing at all and take a vacation without any setbacks if you don't feel driven in a particular direction. This is a great time to feel confident in yourself and your goals because things are flowing as you believe they will.

Entering Jan 28 2010, Exact Feb 27 2010, Leaving Mar 19 2010

You are feeling frustrated in your relationships with loved ones, particularly with women. It could seem that there are barriers that stop you being close to your loved ones or you could feel isolated and unable to scale the walls that surround you emotionally. It could also be that you are frustrated with your domestic scene. Perhaps you are trying to renovate your home or move house, but there are delays. Try not to force situations. The best way of dealing with these problems is to let the emotions settle rather than stirring them up.

 

TRANSITING PLUTO OPPOSITION PROGRESSED JUPITER (6th House to 12th House)

Entering Nov 12 2009, Exact Dec 27 2009, Leaving Feb 12 2010

During this time you will find it difficult to achieve your goals. It may be that you lack the confidence or energy needed to help you achieve your aims, or perhaps others will stand in your way. You should be wary of anyone appearing in the guise of guru or priest, particularly the established church. You would also be wise to avoid legal battles during this transit, as they could prove very difficult under the influence of this energy.

 

TRANSITING SATURN SQUARE PROGRESSED JUPITER (3rd House to 12th House)

Entering Nov 14 2009, Exact Dec 3 2009, Exact Feb 23 2010, Leaving Mar 16 2010

There is tension between your wish to follow your rainbow, and the need to attend to the practicalities in life. In other words you are experiencing a struggle between the side of you which wants to expand and grow, and another side of you that wants to stay put and feel secure. This tension will lead to resolution, but in the meantime you may be forced to work through the problems and obstacles that stand in the path of your fulfillment. You feel down on your luck. New opportunities seem to present themselves only to come to nothing. It is similar to seeing an oasis in the desert only to discover that it did not exist. In truth you are restless for new horizons but instead are being required to shoulder old responsibilities. It is also a time when projects and goals will be tested. Exercise patience and calm persistence during this transit and you will discover a renewed sense of equilibrium.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER ENTERING 8TH HOUSE (8th House)

Nov 24 2009

Joint enterprises bring benefits during this period, as long as you show some restraint. It would be easy to make grand plans for investments and joint businesses during this time but you would do better to plan carefully. It is also possible that you receive a gift, a legacy or inheritance. Metaphysical matters may also appeal.

Entering May 8 2010, Exact May 12 2010, Leaving May 15 2010

A steady flow of fuel provides you with energy to take on new challenges and raise your level of creativity. This is a good time to take calculated risks. Your sense of initiative and confidence guides you to operate with a high degree of efficiency. Move your body, open your heart and you will discover that you are capable of pushing past your old limits. You have an abundance of physical energy and self-confidence right now and can take on new projects and challenges with ease. You feel bolder and less dependent on others' affirmation and approval. Taking a strong stand or striking out on your own in some manner is likely to work out well for you.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE NATAL NEPTUNE (8th House to 4th House)

Entering Nov 25 2009, Exact Dec 5 2009, Leaving Dec 14 2009

Extremes of faith and fatalism can be destabilizing, leading to excessive behavior in all directions. We are reshaping the world, or perhaps it will be reshaping itself. Conscious human participation in creating the future is our greatest hope for a constructive outcome. Be cautious as you are currently vulnerable to deception and disillusionment because the energies of this transit lead you to discard the more practical side of your nature in favor of a fantasy world. Your common sense has flown out of the window and you yearn for greener pastures. You may find yourself daydreaming of better times, or even taking up a fanatical religious pursuit. Therefore this is not the best time for making life-changing decisions or entering into agreements which demand clear judgment.

Entering May 10 2010, Exact May 13 2010, Leaving May 16 2010

Family matters, or other issues of personal security, fight for your attention now. The tendency may be to react in crisis mode. Slow down and plan your next move, rather than jumping directly into the fire. This is a good time to change your habits or routine. Just don't expect to be perfectly comfortable with it right away. It takes time to get comfortable with new patterns or a new environment. It's okay to move the furniture, just don't strain yourself doing it. You are quite excitable and therefore, possibly prone to accidents and arguments during this period. It is possible that you are suffering from emotional or physical stress. Your relationship with an important woman in your life may also be troubling you. You may think that it is others who are at fault, but it is more likely that you are over-reacting and causing conflict. You need to learn to slow down and consider your actions carefully.

 

TRANSITING NEPTUNE SQUARE PROGRESSED NORTH NODE (8th House to 11th House)

Entering Nov 27 2009, Exact Jan 23 2010, Leaving Mar 4 2010

This can be a time of confusion when you are unsure of your purpose in life. On the one hand you are unsure of where you are heading, on the other hand you feel compelled to know your purpose. The answer is to keep seeking information which will help you better understand your purpose. In the meantime, if you act with integrity, you will look back on this period as one of profound change.

Entering May 11 2010, Exact May 14 2010

Love ballads float through the air. The time favors soothing feelings while building reservoirs of romance for one another. A Harlequin-like time period refreshes your love. Creativity reaches new heights. Be on the lookout for an inspiration or opportunity that could bring in resources or become your next line of work or sideline. Funny how you get wonderful ideas when you're doing something you love. Share everything freely and fully. Watch life multiply.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SEXTILE NATAL MARS (8th House to 10th House)

Entering Nov 30 2009, Exact Dec 10 2009, Leaving Dec 18 2009

You are confident and optimistic and life seems to be more than meeting your expectations under this influence. You are enjoying working towards your goals and having some fun on the way. Others are also pleased to help you achieve the success that you well deserve, as long as you remain open to the opportunities. Strong, regular energy fuels original ideas and moves toward expansion, especially in cooperation with others. Place your bets on growth under this influence. Projects inspired under this influence have the potential to prosper and gain momentum that endures.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE PROGRESSED MERCURY (8th House to 10th House)

Entering Dec 3 2009, Exact Dec 13 2009, Leaving Dec 21 2009

There is a danger of acting or speaking before you think during this transit. Therefore you should avoid making impulsive decisions or acting rashly. You also may have several projects on the go at once. There are certainly many exciting options even if they do create a bit of tension. Take time where ever possible to think first and act later.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER QUINCUNX NATAL ASCENDANT (8th House to 1st House)

Entering Dec 13 2009, Exact Dec 22 2009, Leaving Dec 29 2009

It is time to readjust some of your personal goals. It is important that you take the reins and change your own plans, otherwise circumstances will force you to let go. It is also possible that your personal relationships will undergo changes paving the way for new avenues of self-expression.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE PROGRESSED MIDHEAVEN (8th House to 10th House)

Entering Dec 13 2009, Exact Dec 22 2009, Leaving Dec 30 2009

You now feel the urge to get ahead in life, particularly in the areas of work and social status. The path to professional success may not be smooth, however, as you may go over the top in your efforts to climb the social or professional ladder. You may feel like you having some difficulty juggling home and work commitments and a few decisions are required.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE PROGRESSED MARS (8th House to 10th House)

Entering Dec 14 2009, Exact Dec 23 2009, Leaving Dec 30 2009

You are learning first hand that there is a difference between assertiveness and aggression. The trouble is that you have an overwhelming need to push ahead with all your projects now. Patience seems to desert you. You don't mean to be so forceful but it is simply that you feel such a sense of urgency. Although easier said than done, it would be better if you could slow down and keep things in perspective. Avoid taking risks.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER TRINE NATAL JUPITER (8th House to 11th House)

Entering Dec 18 2009, Exact Dec 26 2009, Leaving Jan 2 2010

Lucky in love and life can be the catchphrase for this transit. Although it is not as powerful as some other Jupiter transits, it is a time of optimism and good fortune. Do not pass up opportunities, but use your discrimination regarding the opportunities that come your way. You may find that the opportunities that arise are connected with travel, study, and anything that expands your horizons.

 

TRANSITING NEPTUNE SQUARE NATAL NORTH NODE (8th House to 11th House)

Entering Dec 20 2009, Exact Feb 4 2010, Leaving Mar 17 2010

This can be a time of confusion when you are unsure of your purpose in life. On the one hand you are unsure of where you are heading, on the other hand you feel compelled to know your purpose. The answer is to keep seeking information which will help you better understand your purpose. In the meantime, if you act with integrity, you will look back on this period as one of profound change.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE NATAL NORTH NODE (8th House to 11th House)

Entering Dec 21 2009, Exact Dec 28 2009, Leaving Jan 5 2010

Relations with other people, either individuals or groups, can be stressful during this transit. You are keen to explore new connections with other people, but are having difficulty letting go of the old ones. As a result you are over-committed. It is possible that your sense of being overwhelmed by your social commitments may also be the result of a tendency to want to withdraw from society. You may even feel anti-social, preferring to reassess your personal and business relationships than to mix. You wonder if your relationships are really helping you achieve your purpose in life. You feel compelled to let go of the old in order to move into new and improved relationships. This could be literally ending old relationships, or simply breaking old patterns of relationships so that they continue in a renewed manner.

Entering May 10 2010, Exact May 14 2010

This is a great time to reach out, but be careful about reaching too far. There's an appropriate balance between taking on more in your life without becoming overwhelmed. Yes, you do need to push the limits, if only to make life interesting. But, the need for action can be so strong that you can overstate your case or just be itching to prove a point. The difference between asserting yourself and being aggressive is an important one to understand now.

Entering May 10 2010, Exact May 13 2010, Leaving May 16 2010

Family matters, or other issues of personal security, fight for your attention now. The tendency may be to react in crisis mode. Slow down and plan your next move, rather than jumping directly into the fire. This is a good time to change your habits or routine. Just don't expect to be perfectly comfortable with it right away. It takes time to get comfortable with new patterns or a new environment. It's okay to move the furniture, just don't strain yourself doing it. You are quite excitable and therefore, possibly prone to accidents and arguments during this period. It is possible that you are suffering from emotional or physical stress. Your relationship with an important woman in your life may also be troubling you. You may think that it is others who are at fault, but it is more likely that you are over-reacting and causing conflict. You need to learn to slow down and consider your actions carefully.

This can be a confusing time when you ask questions such as: What am I doing with my life? Where am I heading? What am I achieving? Someone or something may be subtly testing you at work, causing you to lose self-confidence. It is not a good time for clear thinking and decision-making in your career. However, it is a good time to reflect on your career choices and how you could express more of your true creative self at work in the future.

A steady flow of fuel provides you with energy to take on new challenges and raise your level of creativity. This is a good time to take calculated risks.

Move your body, open your heart and you will discover that you are capable of pushing past your old limits. You have an abundance of physical energy and self-confidence right now and can take on new projects and challenges with ease. You feel bolder and less dependent on others' affirmation and approval. Taking a strong stand or striking out on your own in some manner is likely to work out well for you.

This is a beneficial time for you and your loved one. You particularly enjoy your partner's company and feel the urge to share fun-loving and warm moments. You are willing to make the extra effort that is required to satisfy both your and your partner. Sometimes this transit can highlight the problems which exist in your relationship. These difficulties may be blown out of proportion and you would be wise not to make any hasty decisions.

 

TRANSITING NEPTUNE SQUARE PROGRESSED MARS (8th House to 10th House)

In Orb Oct 17 2009, Exact Jan 3 2010, Leaving Feb 17 2010

During this transit you may feel as if you are in one of those dreams where you are walking on the same spot and getting nowhere fast. It is also common to feel tired, as if you just want to "get off the merry-go-round". If you are not careful you will start to review your life through pessimistic eyes feeling that you have been a failure. This is not the time to be pushing yourself so hard. Rather you should stop and smell the roses. Creative and spiritual activities may help restore your equilibrium.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE PROGRESSED SUN (8th House to 11th House)

Entering Jan 10 2010, Exact Jan 17 2010, Leaving Jan 24 2010

This is a good period of time to seek out and accept help and cooperation in career projects and any endeavor concerning your life direction or social roles. By being magnanimous, you will seem all the more accomplished for it and will attract support and praise for your efforts. You could actually do nothing at all and take a vacation without any setbacks if you don't feel driven in a particular direction. This is a great time to feel confident in yourself and your goals because things are flowing as you believe they will.

This can be a bit of a burdensome time when seemingly unnecessary tasks turn up that aren't really yours to contend with, or shouldn't be. Things turn up unfinished that you were sure you were through with and operations that never should have begun finally are shut down. It's a period of picking up pieces and putting things back into order so they'll run better next time. You may be more tired than usual, not from overexertion but from having your focus brought into disarray by unasked for distractions that sap your energy.

 

TRANSITING URANUS SQUARE NATAL JUPITER (9th House to 11th House)

Entering Jan 21 2010, Exact Feb 21 2010, Leaving Mar 20 2010

During this time you will crave excitement and feel frustrated by anything or anyone who restricts your freedom. The trouble is that right now you are not in the mood to moderate your desires. You want to break out of any area of your life which has fallen into a routine, and woe betide anyone or anything that stands in your way. New people, new events, new opportunities and new horizons are all extremely inviting, but you lack the judgment to discriminate. You would do best to remember a couple of adages: "Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater" and "moderation in all things".

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SEMISQUARE NATAL SUN (8th House to 10th House)

You are feeling frustrated in your relationships with loved ones, particularly with women. It could seem that there are barriers that stop you being close to your loved ones or you could feel isolated and unable to scale the walls that surround you emotionally. It could also be that you are frustrated with your domestic scene. Perhaps you are trying to renovate your home or move house, but there are delays. Try not to force situations. The best way of dealing with these problems is to let the emotions settle rather than stirring them up.

Entering Apr 15 2010, Exact Apr 19 2010, Leaving Apr 23 2010

Circumstances may not be cooperating with your way of seeing things. It's easy to be annoyed, feel challenged and want to strike out at the world. Success, though, comes from widening your perspective to adapt to the current situation. This is not about giving up principles, it's a way to expand your capacities to act and communicate effectively. Productivity can be high if you take this tack.

 

TRANSITING URANUS SEXTILE NATAL NORTH NODE (9th House to 11th House)

Entering Feb 2 2010, Exact Mar 3 2010, Leaving Mar 29 2010

New experiences abound prompting a change of direction more in line with your true purpose in life. This could involve meeting new groups of people, an exciting new relationship, change of career or new interest. It could also involve metaphysics, science, environmental interests or technology. This is a metaphysical time during which you have the opportunity to become more alive and open to life's excitement. It's also possible that you will take up activities that, although not obviously linked with your ultimate purpose, will stand you in good stead later in life. Our own ideas of our true purpose at one stage in life may differ at a later stage. So keep an open mind and make the most of any opportunities that pass your way.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SEMISQUARE NATAL MARS (8th House to 10th House)

Your energy level seems to be falling below that of your expectations. Obstacles seem to be mounting and you don't seem to have the motivation to overcome them. If you exercise some patience and take the opportunity to slow down and recharge your batteries, you will reap the benefits. It may also be necessary to consider whether or not you are using your time and energy wisely.

Expect to be pushed a little out of your comfort zone now and be ready to make some adjustments in your style of expressing yourself under this influence. Your style and tastes may be questioned by others; this is your chance to try something new. Sometimes you need to defend yourself, just to have the pleasure of making up afterward. Keeping a sense of humor is the perfect attitude for turning conflict into pleasure. Stretch yourself to find joy in new and different activities.

Entering Feb 18 2010, Exact Feb 25 2010, Exact Mar 24 2010, Leaving Mar 31 2010

Just one wrong word, even a look, could be enough to set you off. No, you're not crazy, just ready to smash through convention, break the rules and find real freedom in your life. Rebellious feelings can be strong, even chaotic. But, if you are able to stay flexible and step back a bit, you can make this a time of discovery rather than outrage. You may fight anyone you think is trying to control you, which could be everyone today. The idea here is to put that fresh energy you've got into a creative channel where it will produce, rather than destroy.

Intense feelings may not be easy to hide now. The challenge is finding the best way to express them without going too far. Whoever may be making you angry is only the trigger, not the real cause. Look within far enough and you may find some core issues about power and control that are the real culprits. You can use this time to overcome incredible obstacles. Just make sure that these are the real obstacles that you want to move. Focus your activities to the most essential, and your force can be like a laser able to cut through anything.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SESQUISQUARE NATAL ASCENDANT (8th House to 1st House)

You might be having difficulty pursuing your goals and furthering your plans. It seems that there are many obstacles, which you cannot figure out how to avoid. Perhaps even your personal relationships are holding you back, or perhaps others are not as appreciative as they could be of your need for fun and enjoyment. Slow down a little and let others adjust to the pace. On the whole you are feeling self-confident and are enjoying warm relations with other people during this period. However, you also find there are times when others are not as appreciative as they could be of your need for fun and enjoyment.

Entering Feb 23 2010, Exact Mar 4 2010, Exact Mar 23 2010, Leaving Apr 2 2010

"Frustration" could be the key word for this period. You are full of energy and are ready for action, and yet no matter which way you turn your path seems to be blocked. With a little patience, you should eventually achieve your goals. Family matters, or other issues of personal security, fight for your attention now. The tendency may be to react in crisis mode. Slow down and plan your next move, rather than jumping directly into the fire. This is a good time to change your habits or routine. Just don't expect to be perfectly comfortable with it right away. It takes time to get comfortable with new patterns or a new environment. It's okay to move the furniture, just don't strain yourself doing it. You are quite excitable and therefore, possibly prone to accidents and arguments during this period. It is possible that you are suffering from emotional or physical stress. Your relationship with an important woman in your life may also be troubling you. You may think that it is others who are at fault, but it is more likely that you are over-reacting and causing conflict. You need to learn to slow down and consider your actions carefully.

 

TRANSITING URANUS CONJUNCTION PROGRESSED SATURN (9th House)

Entering Mar 9 2010, Exact Apr 4 2010, Leaving May 4 2010

During this time all that is safe and familiar is subject to disruption. This can be quite disconcerting as you feel a lack of a firm footing in life. Jobs, homes, families, relationships, finances or anything which adds to your sense of security are likely to undergo a sudden change. Although this period can be quite destabilizing, by the end of this transit you will enjoy a newfound sense of freedom.

 

TRANSITING NEPTUNE OPPOSITION PROGRESSED ASCENDANT (8th House to 2nd House)

Entering Mar 9 2010

Your relationship with your loved one is going through a confusing time right now testing your integrity and self-confidence. It could be that your relationship has deteriorated because of your partner's ill health or issues surrounding drugs. It may be that the partnership has dissolved leaving you wandering in a fog uncertain as to the reasons why or it could be that your partner has been deceiving you in some way. Sometimes a third person can be hovering in the distance further confusing the issues. If you are not currently in a relationship you may feel drawn to someone in need of your help, someone who could become reliant on your good nature. It would be best to avoid such relationships, although you may not see this at the time. If you feel that your new relationship is the ideal that you have always been waiting for, you would still be wise to enjoy the romance but wait before you make a commitment as you may not be seeing things clearly right now. On a more positive note it is possible to enjoy a creative or spiritual pursuit with your partner during this time. Certainly the lesson is to face all issues with your partner with as much honesty as possible and to ensure that your primary relationship is enriching your lives rather than draining resources.

This transit can indicate a sudden and dramatic change in your life ranging from simply a break in your routine to a breakdown in a relationship, career or way of life. On the one hand you feel a strong urge for a change of scenery, but on the other hand you feel rattled at the thought of breaking new territory. In some cases you may feel that there are obstacles, in the form of responsibilities to other people, which are holding you back.  Either way it is time to ponder on your life and use this time to free yourself of restrictions. You will be grateful for the new-found freedom in the end.

 

TRANSITING JUPITER SQUARE PROGRESSED MOON (8th House to 11th House)

Entering Mar 20 2010, Exact Mar 28 2010, Leaving Apr 5 2010

Great ideas promise more satisfaction than it might seem they deliver right need and you might need to sort out what profits and what doesn't. This is a time to experiment and expect to try several times before you get it right. If you overshoot or undershoot the mark, don't be disappointed because you get another shot. Watch out for indulgence during this transit. You are likely to go all-out in an effort to achieve comfort and pleasure. The trouble is that you might lack the ability to balance your need for emotional security with your enthusiasm for the pleasures of life. The result can be a lackadaisical approach to life which  irritates others and gets you nowhere fast. Tensions may also surface on the domestic scene.

Life can take on an explosive quality during this period as you struggle to achieve your goals. It seems as though other people and external events are deliberately plotting to thwart your every move. However, it may be that you are going overboard in your attempts to get your own way. The trouble is that you want to make great changes in your life, but lack the necessary tolerance and patience to get the timing right. Power and the abuse of power may become a focus of your life. You would be wise to muster as much restraint as is possible or you may simply go too far and lose the lot.

Many of the best things in life are free right now, so sit up and take notice. What you seize under this influence will be the future’s treasure. The potential here is for a pot of gold for your soul. This can be a time of tranquility as you enjoy harmonious relationships with loved ones.

You feel at one with the world during this transit. Meditation, music, art, dance, photography, spiritual groups, travel and communing with nature offer moments of peace and tranquility. You feel creative and intuitive. Therefore it is a good time to explore and express the more artistic and spiritual side of your nature. Think of it as an opening of the spirit, a harmonious duet between religion and spirituality, hopes and dreams, belief and faith. These giant planets hum deeply in the background as long waves of joyous wisdom balancing the jangled noise of daily doubt and confusion.

This can be a bit of a burdensome time when seemingly unnecessary tasks turn up that aren't really yours to contend with, or shouldn't be. Things turn up unfinished that you were sure you were through with and operations that never should have begun finally are shut down.

This can be a beneficial transit during which you feel an increased joy in your responsibilities.
