Mars makes some very difficult connections during November, and is going through Vedic Libra – a sign that just can’t properly support it.
In this video and Blog I list in detail what to expect from the Mars complications this month of November 2021. But see also the partner video and Blog where I detail ways of envisioning and embodying the higher spiritual and earthly expression of Mars.
I have really felt this transit, so I want to share what it’s all about and the sequence of its unfolding. This is because I have three planets in Libra and Pluto is transiting square my Sun and Moon around the present time. How does it affect you?
This all started from around 22nd October. This was when Pluto was in exact square to Mars. No messing there! The Dark commands! Do it now! The Dark arises. And this was also the day that Mars entered Vedic Libra!
So we now need to seize all this difficult upcoming energies sequence as actually being an opportunity to come into our true power (Pluto) and to come into our true Warrior nature (Mars), to understand power more, to understand being a warrior more.
We need to find ways to achieve this. Make November a month to be proud of ourselves for growing in our proper connection to Mars divine Warrior energies.
See the Pt 1 video for this Blog post here
And see the Pt 2 video here
So, Mars transits from 7 to 27 deg Vedic Libra in November 2021.
Mars is warrior energy. But it’s all over the place in the Libra sign setting. Mars’ energies in November are tortuous, with tension after tension on the way all month, and we will be helped if we know what’s coming, we understand what these energies and situations are, and make the optimum personal growth from this evolving situation.
So, fist let’s study the planet energies and then put the pieces of the jigsaw together in date order.
All this is with the aim of being forewarned is forearmed, but also of working out what is the highest good for each of us in all this – becoming the guy we were born to be, becoming the woman we were born to be.
+So, let’s examine the seven pieces of the jigsaw, and it will really help us if we understand them fully. They are as follows:
1. Pluto square Mars exact 22nd October.
2. Mars in Libra – Understand the true nature of Mars and what being in Libra does to him.
3. Pluto and Saturn squaring Mars and Mercury in the New Moon of 4th November
4. Mars combusting and conjuncting Mercury exact on 12th November
5. Uranus opposition Mars exact on November 17th
6. Mars and The Eclipse Full Moon of November 19th
7. Conclusion: Work to connect with the Divine Nature of Mars. It is especially important now to learn what is the Divine Nature of Mars, learning how we actually usually access the true nature of the planet through ‘filters’ such as Sign, House and Aspect as expressed in our chart, using both Vedic Astrology (which is orientated to our destiny and our incarnational life purpose), and also in Western Psychodynamic Astrology (which instead is orientated to our egoic or psychological self and the unfoldment of that).
N.B. This Pt 7 video and Blog are a separate standalone item, because they apply to all time, not just to November 2021. Click the links to see them.
OK, let’s look at the first six pieces of this crucial jigsaw in date order:
Jigsaw piece 1. Pluto square Mars exact 22nd October.
Mars was at 0 deg Vedic Libra on this day, in Chitra Nakshatra, which is ruled by Mars. Pluto was at 0 deg Capricorn.
Basically, Mars energy includes action and anger.
Pluto is our power.
This can be our wrongful power or our rightful power, and note that it includes our buried power issues, where we buried in our unconscious either wrong power used over us, or our rightful power which our family or societal circumstances did not allow us to express!
I feel this Mars-Pluto square really activated the full force of that planet combination in our lives and from our past – including buried Pluto and Mars (Power and Anger issues) our issues OR those of others imposed upon us, from our Past.
And, secondly, it also fully activated the dilemma of having it in the sign energies of Libra.
MARS/PLUTO: The principle is: Superhuman power. Force. Brutality. The ability to demonstrate extraordinary force and vigour. Great self-confidence. Obsession, working without break. Great ambition. The attainment of one’s own objectives by means of ruthless to others. Brutality. Cruelty. The person who wants to use force or compulsion at every occasion.
This can manifest as the attainment of success through excessive effort, the tendency to proceed in a brutal manner. The misfortune of suffering violent assaults and injuries.
OR this is the person who has suffered in the past in their life from having all this imposed upon them!
Are you one of the people who felt something of this energy complex arising in your consciousness, in your behaviour, in your way of relating, from your dreams?
If so, how have you been handling it?
Jigsaw piece 2. Mars in Libra
First of all, we have to consider how the planet Mars finds himself, when he is placed in the sign of Libra.
Who is Mars?
Mars is very out of place in Libra. This is because the Divine Nature of Mar is to be our own internal right and true crucial warrior. Mars energy is passionate and vital. Mars is the planet of power, strength and courage.
Properly expressed Mars gives us our needed energy, will and self-confidence to independently carry out our proper tasks in this life: to achieve the right things to express our destiny in this incarnation.
We are all of us here to accomplish certain karmic tasks: to burn our negative karmas, to maximize the special talents we cam in with to this life.
With a weak Mars we will fail to make needed achievement.
What is Libra’s nature?
So, what about Libra, the sign that Mars falls in all this month of November 2021?
Libra is the ‘people pleasing’ sector of the zodiac. Librans seek balance. The Sun is most deeply Fallen in Libra because Libran are always wanting to fit in with the Other. Positively, us Librans are reassuring and comforting, friendly and adaptable, flexible; can be anything with anybody; the good diplomat. And negatively that can shift into sneaking away from conflict, and being too adjusting and ineffectual.
So, how can Mars properly cope with a Libra setting?
How on earth can warrior Mars properly manifest his divine warrior higher nature in that Libra setting?
How on earth can warrior Mars properly achieve his needed strategies and responsibilities in that Libra setting?
Well, what will happen for many is that we will feel torn and vacillating, on edge. We might swing between angry assertion and snapping out our orders to then swing to balance up as ‘peace and love man’. We will feel really tense about having to fit in with other people’s personalities and orders yet needing to stick up for ourselves and accomplish.
We are here to learn to connect with the Divine Nature of each of the planets, which are in fact Faces of the ultimate Divine.
If we can succeed in identifying the proper nature of Mars this month, and if we can succeed in achieving the higher Mars warrior expression this month, whilst also honouring Libra qualities, we will have done so very well.
So, monitor the way your Mars project is going day by day.
Take stock of how you are doing in managing your Mars energies as the month of November progresses.
It can be helpful to do vision work to envision the Divine nature of Mars, to envision the Divine and truly spiritual warrior, and indeed to do an exercise to seek to embody the true Mars.
Do see the end of this Video/Blog for all about this important approach.
So, what else does Mars have to cope with in his Journey through November?
Jigsaw piece 3. Mars and The New Moon 4the November:
The New Moon of 4th November is a bit of a train crash for Mars. Don’t get caught up in the wreckage.
Mars is at 9 Libra; Mercury is at 4 Libra. The New Moon is at 18 Libra
But the key aspects are that:
Repressive Saturn is at 13 Capricorn, so squaring Mercury and Mars and the New Moon.
Explosive Pluto is at 0 deg Capricorn, so squaring explosive Mars and irate Mercury.
It was only on 22nd October that Pluto was in exact square to Mars. No messing there! The Dark commands! Do it now!
The Mars-Pluto combination is superhuman power. Force. Brutality. The ability to demonstrate extraordinary force and vigour. Great self-confidence. Obsession. working without break. Great ambition. The attainment of one’s own objectives by means of ruthless to others. Brutality. Cruelty. A person who wants to use force or compulsion on every occasion
Obviously, this fits in so easily with the Libra personality! NOT!!!!
And revolutionary Uranus is in exact opposition to this New Moon at 18 Aries, thus transmitting the call to storm the Bastille to Mars and Mercury too.
The Mars-Uranus combination is sudden application of effort. Extraordinary amount of energy suddenly made available. The urge for freedom. Unyieldingness. Quick determination. Courage. An argumentative disposition. Contradictoriness. Self-willed obstinacy. Lack of balance. Intolerance. The urge for freedom. Tension. Stress. Fighting spirit. Violence. Proneness to injury or accidents. Violent people. Fighters for freedom. Revolutionaries. People who argue for the sake of it. Unusual achievement through extraordinary power of effort. Inclination to act too hastily. passing of a test of nerves. A struggle for survival.
Obviously, this fits in so easily with the nice, eager to please Libra personality! NOT!!!!
There’s such a battle call to people with major planets at the end of Vedic Virgo and through all of Vedic Libra.
Other signs are caught up in the mayhem too: Capricorn, Aries and Cancer for example. We all are!
Jigsaw piece 4. Mars conjuncting and combusting Mercury
Mars’ second hurdle is Mercury, bugging him and coming up from behind. Mercury starts November at 29 Virgo when Mars is at 7 Libra.
But Mercury soon overtakes Mars. They’re together at 12 Libra by 12th November. Mercury thus is combusted, and Librans will feel fraught with the combative energies and fighting potential.
How can the urge to aggressively shout your mouth off possibly cope with and manage the Libra charming diplomat atmosphere?
At its highest, the Mars-Mercury combination is power of thought, the realization of thoughts and plans. It is the power of resolution or determination. Love of discussion or argument. The ability to judge. achieving success through spirit of enterprise and power of determination
But negatively, Mars-Mercury is Retaliation. rashness, exaggeration. Quarrel. Grumbling. Fault-finding. Obstinacy and willfulness. Irritability. getting involved in disputes or controversies or lawsuits. Bringing about disputes.
Jigsaw piece 5. Uranus opposition Mars exact on November 17th
As I said above talking about the New Moon of November 4th, where the Uranus-Mars energy was already hotting up, to become exact on November 17th,
The revolutionary Mars-Uranus combination is sudden application of effort. Extraordinary amount of energy suddenly made available. The urge for freedom. Unyieldingness. Quick determination. Courage. An argumentative disposition. Contradictoriness. Self-willed obstinacy. Lack of balance. Intolerance. The urge for freedom. Tension. Stress. Fighting spirit. Violence. Proneness to injury or accidents. Violent people. Fighters for freedom. Revolutionaries. People who argue for the sake of it. Unusual achievement through extraordinary power of effort. Inclination to act too hastily. passing of a test of nerves. A struggle for survival.
Obviously, this fits in so easily with the nice eager to please Libra personality – NOT!
The Mars Opposite Uranus Transit brings an energy of nervous irritability which will unsettle or destroy your life patterns, anger and resentment which may have been building for some time, lashing out, going on the attack, impulsiveness, explosiveness and smashing tradition, breaking free of your responsibilities and obligations. To be handled with great care and awareness.
Jigsaw piece 6. Mars and The Eclipse Full Moon of November 19th
So, this eclipse has Sun at 3 Scorpio and Moon at 3 Taurus. Mars is at 19 Libra in Swati Nakshatra on this violent Eclipse Day?
With all the issues I mentioned above of how does Mars cope in nice-guy Libra sign?
And, remember, Jupiter is so weak at 29 Capricorn, so we will all need to remember to make special effort to connect with guru and blessing and enlargement at this time.
On November 25th, the Moon is T-square the Mars-Uranus opposition in the heavens.
On 28th November, Mars at 25 Vedic Libra is Trine Neptune, where both Mars and Neptune are sextile Venus. Sounds the nicest Mars combination in the month so far.
The final piece of the Jigsaw: Piece 7. Conclusion: Mars Divine Nature Connect through Vision Work and Embodiment:
So, what conclusion can we draw by way of guidance for handling Mars in November 2021? N.B. This Pt 7 video and Blog are a separate standalone item, because they apply to all time, not just to November 2021. Click the links to see them.
