I mentioned in my wrap-up of the week last Sunday that I was blaming the restlessness and frustration that’s been in the air on Uranus or, more specifically, on the fact that Uranus was in the last throes of the transit through Aries and wouldn’t get another chance at shaking up that part of the […]

Mars in Aries

Is it just me or is it getting hot in here? Mars rules Aries, so is at his strongest, most physical, most vital, most impulsive, most headstrong, most independent and most selfish here.

It’s Pandemonium: Happy Birthday Aries….

Ruler: Mars Exalted: Sun Detriment: Venus Fall: Saturn Polarity: Masculine/ Positive Modality: Cardinal Element: Fire Body Parts: head, adrenal glands, blood (as the vitaliser and energizer) Nature: hot, dry, inflammatory Aries represents activation and direct, thrusting, forward motion….yep, sounds a tad phallic. Like mothers, us astrologers are supposed to love all signs equally and not […]
