Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of man as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.”
– Helen Keller
The mass migration from Aquarius to Pisces continues. Mars not only takes its turn, it brings something extra.
First, some perspective. The Martian ingress into Pisces follows Chiron, the Sun and Mercury. There is one more to go. Not to be judged by its size, an auspicious asteroid named Karma will conclude matters for the time being when it enters Pisces on Thursday. Because Uranus has not yet ended its stay in Pisces, we have an inventory of one luminary, three major planets, Chiron — perhaps the most influential centaur planet — and asteroid Karma, whose time has come. That’s a lot.
All of this movement can be taken as a huge transfer of energy from Aquarius, a sign traditionally ruled by Saturn, to Pisces, one sign traditionally ruled by Jupiter (the other is Sagittarius). This implies a shift of influence from Saturn to Jupiter. The timing is auspicious because of how the astrology will peak on Friday. Jupiter is getting pumped up for the big one when it exactly squares Pluto at week’s end; in fact, we are feeling its energy now, and have been seeing its effects in the news. This is a relatively rare and tense aspect between Jupiter in early Aries, and Pluto, 90 degrees away in Capricorn. This cardinal square has been functional for several weeks now.
The expansive idealism of Jupiter finds definition in the fundamental force of Pluto. This has been expressing itself in a passionate zealotry that can only be released by direct and sustained action. Look at what is happening around the world. From the halls of the Wisconsin legislature to the shores of Tripoli in Libya, people are risking everything and holding nothing back. Then, consider this. Jupiter is only acting as a proxy, warming the spot that Uranus will take starting next year. We ain’t seen nothing yet.
The cascade of planets into Pisces is ramping this up because Jupiter derives a good deal of its identity and influence from what is going on in that sign. It is already very nearly overwhelming. So what, besides bolstering Jupiter further, does Mars bring to Pisces? It brings a third concurrent case of mutual reception — loosely defined as two planets in each other’s sign of rulership.
