Mars-Uranus Square

Mars-Uranus Square - Tense Independence

"The past is not simply the past, but a prism through which the subject filters his own changing self-image.'"

— Doris Kearns Goodwin"

This week presents us with a bit of a 'roller-coaster'. Our sense of self-esteem and our self-image is beginning to be shaken up quite a bit. Saturn is already retrograde in Pisces, suggesting lessons about 'faith' — in ourselves, mostly. Venus is slowing down to turn retrograde in Leo, setting markers during the shadow phase as it makes the first of three trines to Chiron and the first of three squares to Uranus — putting our self-esteem and self-reliance up for review. And by the end of the week, Neptune turns retrograde in Pisces, perhaps helping to clear some lingering fog away — but with no guarantees about how happy we are about what is revealed through a somewhat clearer lens. The week begins with a Mars-Uranus square that shows off a great deal of tension and highlights some potential obstacles to the free flow of self-expression. Ego vulnerabilities may produce some defensiveness that brings aggressively harsh responses. But Mercury arrives in Cancer by late Monday night and the Moon sets up a Grand Water trine on Wednesday that helps us diffuse the tension and soften some of the more abrasive rhetoric. However, the Grand Water trine is quickly followed up by Fixed T-square on Thursday, suggesting another round of obstacles and frustration surrounding our freedom of expression. But then, by the end of the week, the Sun and Mercury make a superior conjunction in a tight sextile to the still direct Jupiter, which helps us to find a far more optimistic perspective. 'Up and down; Round and round'. We may actually find optimism and enthusiasm levels begin to rise a bit too far by the end of the week. Venus seems to be approaching an exciting conjunction with Mars, which is likely to feel quite energizing and exciting. However, Venus doesn't won't quite catch up with Mars before she turns retrograde on July 23rd. So, the enthusiasm at the end of the week will need to be tempered with the awareness that there is more work to do. In fact, Venus won't actually catch up with Mars until the end of February next year after they have both made a 'purifying' pass over Pluto — back in Aquarius. And by then, there won't be any major retrograde activity at all!

Crisis, confusion, and/or uncertainty are especially uncomfortable on Sunday. We have a hard time trying to say what we really mean. We may feel Monday's obstacles as personal attacks. Some will lash out aggressively when they feel that their freedom of expression is challenged. A softened approach is taken on Tuesday, when we find a bit of humility. We can begin to see how to balance our self-interests with some compassion for others. Our attention turns inward on Wednesday. There is a marker of some kind laid down that will help us recognize where we need to work on our self-image and our self-esteem. The energy shifts dramatically on Thursday. New obstacles surface and we may feel the need to lash out once again. However, the price for any harsh words may be isolation. Our perspective expands throughout the day on Friday. Intuition is enhanced but we may need to clear away some 'dark shadows' before we really gain our balance. Philosophical insights flow freely on Saturday. However, we may not be inclined to share our abundance too widely, suggesting a lack of trust.
