Effective Dates – January 28th – March 10th, 2017
This transit is an intense one, Heretics, full of blood and toil and rage. We have witnessed so much this year; we have gone from feeling on top of the world to utterly helpless. We have risen to heaven and fallen to hell, and finally we are becoming enraged. Things are going to start happening, and not just from one side – but all sides. I don’t know about you, but I am already beginning to feel this fiery Aries war energy coming in. We will have a big push coming from multiple planets throttling into Aries (including Eros and Venus), so things are going to start getting far more impulsive (this could be a bad thing when we have a temperamental child in charge of USA right now).
This spontaneity can be both good and bad, just like any energy really. It can get you to finally start on projects you have been letting collect dust. It can get you off of your ass and into the streets. With a new moon in Aquarius happening the day before this transit, this Mars in Aries transit has a lot of political umph behind it. With the Knight of Pentacles charging straight for the Justice card, we are finally willing to put in the work it takes to get a fucking fair outcome for once. Let all of that rage, let all of that disappointment, fuel you for the fight to balance the scales- both in your personal life and in the life of the collective.
We have finally come down off of our mountain after an intense year of personal work, and the cards are telling me that we have all of the tools we need now to do the work that we need to do. We literally just need to get to work. This energy is going to be fickle, but if you can continue feeding the fire and maintaining it so that it doesn’t consume you and the people around you. This energy can be dangerous as fuck, or it can be the literal life blood that you need to get yourself out of a deep well of misery. It all depends on how you use it, how you channel it, and how you maintain it the next few months.
Fire energy is best channeled into art and sex – which seriously is some fun advice to follow. If you feel like the rage is about to consume you, that is a clear indication that you need to funnel that energy into some art or hot, passionate sex. That fire inside of you is pure creative force – the combustible energy a star needs in order to birth itself into existence. Don’t let it destroy you, but use it as the primordial chaos that can manifest any of your dreams into existence. Good luck out there, Heretics. The world is about to set itself on fire.
