Mars-Uranus Square

Mars-Uranus Square - Uncomfortable Independence

"I do not ask the wounded person how he feels, I myself become the wounded person."

— Walt Whitman
Song of Myself

The energy that is stirred this week by a Mars-Uranus square is extremely uncomfortable, making it difficult to relax. The Sun's arrival in Aries at the beginning of the week increases the impact of Mars and suggests militant determination. There are weighty burdens and responsibilities to contend with which makes determined effort even more powerful — for better or worse. Mercury in Pisces conjuncts both Jupiter and Neptune, which has the potential to produce powerful inspiration and remarkable intuitive insight. However, the atmosphere is fraught with indecision and emotional uncertainty. It isn't easy to keep the emotions from turning us towards self-indulgent delusion and self-righteousness. The strength of Mars and the increasing Aries energy can easily make us feel alone when we are dealing with the restrictions, burdens, and responsibilities that we feel. Mars and Uranus encourage us to resist the restrictions and we struggle to find some route to freedom and independence. There is some potential that this environment will produce some self-destructive outbursts. The key to stabilizing ourselves in the environment is to focus on showing empathy to the struggles and burdens of others and avoid seeking sympathy for ourselves. Isolation or severe judgements can cause irreparable harm but if we take time to consider how we fit into a larger picture, we may suddenly recognize that we are not, in fact, alone in our struggle. We begin to get some access to a new level of detachment once we move beyond the Mars-Uranus square by Wednesday. We are likely to feel a new, hard won sense of freedom by the end of week. Compassion and empathy offer the greatest number of breakthroughs and will help us emerge from the cloudy and confusing array of emotions that we are dealing with. The restrictions and responsibilities that we feel are actually an important reminder to 'warrior Mars' that self-discipline is paramount to the warrior's success.

The Sun arrives in Aries on Sunday and our focus shifts from inspiration to action. We will need to guard against self-righteousness. Relaxation is difficult on Monday. There are swirls of insecurity and uncertainty. If we are able to share our struggles openly with others, we will have a better understanding that we are not alone. Energy levels reach a crescendo on Tuesday. There are strong inclinations to show dominance through aggression. A Mercury-Neptune conjunction on Wednesday may offer inspiration or only confusion. Self-discipline will help us to realize the need for teamwork. Activity heats up significantly on Thursday with the Moon's arrival in Capricorn. However, we are prone to taking our responsibilities personally and return to feeling alone and isolated. We finally gain some traction on Friday and begin to work through the extra burdens and responsibilities that we have felt this week. By Saturday evening, the cloudy confusion and weighty burdens begin to lift. Compassion and empathy offer the greatest number of breakthroughs.
