Overdrive below the boulders Part #1
August 2nd - September 3rd
When Mars, Eris and Pluto have a grand day out
With the beginning of August forces accumulate drastically;
intensify throughout the next 6 month.
Mars in Aries acts straight forward in a physical approach,
direct on target without thinking twice.
Mars in Aries displays physical presence with constant flow
of energy into the environment.
With this potential in early Aries Mars produces
a reflex responding to the closest target at a time to capture the situation in
a compassionate manner. Mars does not hold peak performance for long rather
shows spontaneous and drastically.
Mars in the center of Aries rather displays strength and
action identifying itself within this image of power while the late Aries Mars
acts possessive oriented on matter and goals.
Mars repeats its path around the Zodiac within about two
years remaining last between December 31 2018 and February 13th
2019in Aries. This year Mars will remain in Aries for an extended period from
June 27th 2020 until January 6th 2021.
between 2019 and now is that Mars of January 2019 started to gain distance to
Earth becoming more expressive/progressive over time reaching its most distant
position by September 14th 2019. During that phase Mars ended its
phase of accumulation and possessive attitude to a more discharging flow.
This year Mars is closing in on Earth accelerating inner
strength, resistance and possessive attitudes toward environmental influences
peaking by October 16th during a Sun/Moon conjunct in opposite
This peak represents the core strength, position
and discipline within the organism that would need a reason to strike. If
triggered, this Mars expresses organized tactical force aiming for success.
In a peaceful and rather calm environment these phases are
extraordinary productive and save but not so if the environment is split or
restrained. Even though the closing in Mars rests and is rather positioned, in
case of growing stress potential the chance of combustion is rather likely and
of strong effect.
Mars entered its Rx shadow July 25th at 15*
Aries continuing its path until the end of Aries at 28* by September 7 before
entering its grinding Rx phase squaring the entire mid late Capricorn zone
(perfection) during that time starting by August 2nd.
Mars Pluto narrows focus dedicated to a target and shows strong mental
durability on target during the quest. However, the more time is spent under
Pluto’s influence the spectrum of awareness narrows leading to a process of loss
If one can’t let go of Pluto’s influence
target and hunter melt leading to a result of self-destruction. Even though Mars
and Pluto are similar of nature; the difference of durability versus explosive,
leads as a result to a picture of playing dog (Mars) versus hunting Wolf
(Pluto). Pluto likely manifests in a monumental image of self.
Pluto in late Capricorn expresses the physical definition
of power. Yet Pluto rests in the 10th sector Rx manifesting given
structures to gain space, accelerating interests of power narrowing the focus on
this particular goal. The distance of Pluto is median closeish rather than far
out gaining distance at this time becoming slightly more aggressive. Pluto here
embraces control mechanism to perfection resisting any outer influence.
The transit of Pluto between August 1st and
January 6th covers only 2 degrees between 22 *and 24* degrees of
Capricorn remaining in the same sector the entire time.
The third planet in this concert is called Eris, a dwarf
with eccentric orbit and slightly stronger effective than its dwarf companion
Just like Mars and Pluto, planet Eris performs target
driven. The difference here is that Eris assumes social competition within
society based on temper and theme. So while a personified driven Pluto would act
on target like an addict denying itself in favor of success and a possible
delusional image of target, a personified Eris provides the stamina and image in
order to succeed in social dependent context differentiating its own position
from the whole.
Eris is providing performance and an eye for the
field acting like as if participating in a race for the trophy; a piece in the
puzzle of any career providing the level of engagement within social context at
this particular given location in Aries. Here it is embracing the flow of
currency and its possession, management and hoarding on global level.
personal levels Eris provides stamina and oversight spend on long term goals. We
may assume the temper as global accepted form but focusing on the placement in
the theme concept of houses we can define how this force plays out in one’s
When Eris and Pluto engage into a square for a few weeks or
month on and off, conflict becomes visible turns confrontational at a large
scale. But it is not this square creating the conflict. This square enables
power and focus on goals stubbornly approached at all costs creating friction
within the social concept of life given. This aim of power creates disadvantages
for those less fortune in the competition. The craving for victory at any costs
weighs heavy on the environment which then retaliates at some point. This way
the combination of Pluto and Eris creates overbearing levels of imbalance based
on peak performance in matters of gain and competition decaying any roadblock on
The last square between Eris and Pluto happened in June
1908 on and off until June 1912. Eris was located at 25* Pisces (compassionate
rebellion/reformation) and Pluto between 24* and 27* Gemini (concept of social
Under this constellation in 1908 Austria declared the annexation of
Bosnia Herzegovina creating tensions within the Balkan and with the Russian
kingdom leading to the Balkan conflict in 1912 – 1913; then escalated to WW1 one
year later and the Russian Revolution in 1917 (1908-1923) under the influence of
then Eris/Neptune and Uranus.
Eris left the Sign of Pisces leading into the time
of embraced Nationalist movement; a global concurrent event leading to WW2.
The square between Pluto and Eris today occurred in
February 2019 and will last on and off until October 2022. This time conflict
rises on global scale based on exploited resources and misuse of power
confronting the advocates of imperial cooperation in their neglect toward social
and environmental responsibility. Local protests in behalf of existential need
rose ever since in lasting patterns growing in numbers by the day on global
scale. At the same time a trend of reckless deselection and social
differentiation grew to a problematic level all over the globe.
The systematic capture and murder on Uighurs in China, the
ongoing massacre on Rohingya in Myanmar and the deadly removal of Palestine’s
off their lands for profits as well as the vanishing “illegal immigrants” as
well as unwanted citizen in the USA or the systematic murder on Native
Amazonians in Brazil show a trend of escalation in behalf of overbearing
ideological excuse covering a strong tendency to gain profits and space at the
Even though the theme of deselection is embraced through the
Saturn/Pluto conjunct of 2019 it adds to the escalation of conflict at large.
With the conjoint of Mars and Eris (August 15th-August
21st, September 29th-October 8th and December
18th- December 25th) in square to Pluto the energy flow
becomes impulsive and since Mars is closing in on Earth, defensive; stands off
rebellious at a high scale. This boost runs within all life forms and can enable
all sorts of boosts as we have seen through the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction in
March and July. The difference between Mars and Jupiter here is noted in a
dominant bloat/growth (Jupiter) of a situation and a massive disciplined
physical display and performance (Mars close to earth).
On very personal levels and based on interlink with one’s
birth cart the combination of the three can create vast success strong vitality
and sturdy health within personal parameters. For this, success plans have to be
in place, the image of the result verified and ready to be approached because
otherwise the effort would lead to frustrating results. If no plan is in place
the energy will accumulate urging to be released leading to projections,
escalation or illness; even decay. A random fitness plan can take care of the
pressure if needed.
So what is to expect for the next month in time?
First I want to check on Neptune because sensitivity and
awareness respond to martial Aspects in the first frontier. Neptune Rx remains
in the 9th sector of Pisces under upcoming Mars influence until
August 29th then it slowly falls back into a hibernating phase of the
8th sector of Pisces. For now the public awareness is intact and
expresses its disappointment under ongoing decay of overbearing restraint. After
the 29th of August the picture will change to inward oriented
awareness as it was current before April 12th.
Neptune will enter the
last decade of Pisces by February 2021 again encouraging a compassionate display
in favor of equality once more.
On August 2nd the currently accumulating square
between Mars Aries 8th sector and Jupiter Capricorn 8th
sector for 4 days until August 6th. Both sectors assume power and
While the sector of Capricorn embraces restraint in favor
of order the sector in Aries assumes force as of enforcement. This combination
assumes autocratic order enforcement under the current Pluto/Eris square. Since
Mars closes in on Earth its nature encourages discipline and in general we can
assume a rather productive and focused but unpleasant phase under this
constellation embracing guarded restraint in favor of power.
It is not expected that a martial law event will take place
at this point but the constellation would fit the assembly perfectly. The event
may not take place because it may be solved in a different way through anonymous
arrest of particular individuals as it is done in other countries assuring the
solid expression of power through the government or other ruling entities.
Another picture regards the ongoing incompetence in matters of the current
pandemic which may be approached in a productive way under such combination.
From a natural viewpoint this constellation warrants cell
stability and growth, a strong resistance under strong impact through
Mars continues to grow on Eris after the 6th of
August entering a square to Pluto by August 10th for 8 days
increasing its momentum through the incoming conjoint with Eris (August 16th
– 22th) tremendously. Mars impacts Pluto restraining the grip of
power impulsive and it is to expect that if martial restraint occurs the
resistance would be explosive impulsive.
We will play with fire here losing our
discipline which is saving us from uncontrolled unrest at this point in time.
And it is not just about public order here; the constellation impacts each and
every one on individual levels testing your level of discipline and inner
strength within a quiet storm overcoming this narrow path without getting burned
or losing the cool.
On August 20th Saturn squares with Mars until
September 3rd intensifying through a t-square with Venus in Cancer.
This constellation bears conflict on multiple levels requesting an active
approach on the matter. While Saturn pushes for oversight and order Mars will
retaliate based on social alignment and lobbyist stand (Venus).
If you have something to work on, it would be an excellent
excuse to not engage while using a terrific level of personal ability to unfold
future plans during this period. Just make sure that your task leads to a
realistic approachable result because manifestation is the key for relieve.
During the impact of Venus on this constellation you may be aware
of drastic positioning within your environment.
