While Mars is considered a warrior malefic and sometimes an indication of pain or violence, they are also a source of power, action, and transformation. This session puts your specific Mars placement into perspective allowing a more tender and nuanced reconciliation between yourself and power.
Mars wants action. What action can it be? What is the best use of your Mars? The malefic planets get a bad rap. Their reputations are sometimes severe and dangerous. They are often cast as unlikeable and complained about, seen as necessary evils. I have always found these descriptions unjust and too simple. The malefics are friends. Intimate friends. Yes, they signify challenge, but also intellect, solution, and the slow (and sometimes fiery) rush that offers the way through.
Saturn may facilitate the problem, while Mars attends Saturn’s deep talent to offer the deus ex machina that pulls you out. Saturn and Mars can function as hope in that sense. Hope seems ineffable and aimed toward a future, but the malefics can represent active hope. Saturn and Mars (along with the outer planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) can create powerful, gargantuan events, responses and transformations.
Understanding their nuanced influence in your life can provide your deepest source of power, strength, and resilience. They give practical engine to an ephemeral hope. Indeed, hope’s wish becomes grounded reality when malefic influence is understood. In this session, we can also examine “difficult placements” such as Chiron, 8th house matters, and the like.
