Mars Conjunct Mars Transit

Mars Conjunct Mars Transit

Well I have a doozy of a Mars return on November 11 2011. I want to share it because lots of us get a bit anxious when we look ahead and see challenging transits coming up. This is one of those times for me, up to a few days ago I was a bit pessimistic about what it might mean, I have had a feeling for a while that something significant would transpire over these few days. The reason I have been apprehensive about this Mars return is because of the other transits which coincide with it, a pile up of hard aspects which to me has some fated quality about it.

Fortunately the Full Moon tonight trines both my Ascendant and Jupiter which might be why I have been feeling less worried. The main source of my anxiety and worry comes from transiting Saturn on my Venus (exact on Saturday). Anything which transits my Venus also hits Mercury and Saturn because I have Mercury and Venus opposite Saturn. So wow, Saturn opposition on top of a Mars return. I have been working hard and being a responsible parent I hope, guess I’m about to find out if Saturn also thinks so.

Something important to mention here is what we read in books or on websites about particular things in astrology. If they are really negative then they play in your mind. Does that imprinting affect outcomes? Thoughts are things so we have to keep them positive.  Here is an example. My Saturn opposition is probably the most significant transit since my Saturn return 14 years ago. Because my Saturn is the apex of a boomerang Yod, I feel transits to it extremely powerfully and often things happen which seem out of my control. A Saturn opposition on it’s own (forgetting Saturn on my Mercury and Venus) can sound foreboding. It can go either way depending if your are on the right track or not.

This is the real clincher though. I have Mercury and Venus on the fixed star Arcturus. It is a very fortunate star but Ebertin says “If critically aspected, the good influence will be hampered or made into a real handicap. If involved in legal action, such a native may lose all”.  Well I do have it critically aspect by Saturn, and now critically transited by Saturn. I did loose a lot at my Saturn return, wife, dog, house, business, health. Then I went to the pub for a few years :). Would you believe my Arabic Part of Assassination (Mars + Neptune – Uranus) is right between my Mercury and Venus?  Fingers crossed this time!

So because I have Mars on the fixed star Regulus, this Mars return includes an opposition from Neptune and Chiron, hopefully toning down any aggressive nature and turning that energy more to spiritual and healing projects. If you look at it negatively it could be downfall and treachery. Oh yes, Pluto is square my Midheaven for the final time after going back and forth this year. That conjunction of Mercury and Venus is square my Moon the same day as my Mars return. The tightest aspect in my chart is Moon square Lilith so that Mercury Venus conjunction is also opposite my Lilith. I’m confused now. What the hell is the Ascendant for my Mars return doing on my natal Descendant?

Anyway, I am keeping positive and hoping this all leads to some good developments. The kids are going well and are happy. Marina and I are getting on better than ever it seems, looking forward to her next visit with her girl in a couple of weeks for the Christmas holidays. Readings keep flooding in so we are both real busy which is good for the airfares. I did get a nice message from an old adversary a couple of days ago. I’m planning to launch our new Google Plus business page when Saturn is right on my Venus. Will keep you posted about how I feel through the next couple of days and how it all goes in the comments section.

  1. I’ve got Mars conjuncting natal Pluto (and Regulus) joining up in a grand trine between the Jupiter Pluto trine and my natal Jupiter Pluto conjunction (Pluto in Leo, Jupiter in Virgo). Throw Mars into that mix and you’d think something will move in a very positive way around here! Have been at least feeling more positive this week!
    I tend to think of Mars returns as the beginning and end of projects. Hey, I’m a Capricorn! Samhain 2010 was my last Mars return and I set some very specific intentions which have mostly come to fruition but I still have a ways to go. I need that Mars in Virgo for 6 months to really get it grounded.

    • Sounds good to me. I forgot about Mars turning retrograde in Virgo, we get extra energy?

      • I’m hoping it will chill out some of the chaos in the world! Reactionary actions become proactive well ordered action. The occupy movement grows up and becomes a force to reckon with in the electorate.

  2. From todays weekly Astrology 🙂 🙂 🙂“at the same time we have brave Mars on a newly neutered Virgoan Regulus in Leo. The beast is somewhat spiritualized by the Guru opposition. So instead of the usual poncing, this big cat might actually deliver. We may just get an unexpected act of great courage, since sensible Saturn is on powerful, but hugely benefic Spica too. This kind of energy can move mountains, literally!”

    So Mr Regulus, can you move that mountain, Europe, India, Asia and the Indian ocean out the road so I can get to you easier?..:P

    • Well I did talk you into letting me put adds at the bottom of the posts. A bit of extra cash for airfares.

  3. Transiting Mars in Virgo will be conjunct my (1st house, 9 deg.) Pluto in Virgo and trining my Taurus Midheaven 23 deg. By the end of the transit, transiting Mars will also be trining my natal Mars at 23 Capricorn.

    Speaking of the midheaven, I’m hoping beyond hope that Mars in Virgo trining my Taurus midheaven can translate to a job offer. I’ve been unemployed now for over 2 years and desperate. I can’t wait until transiting Jupiter resumes it’s forward motion to get to the exact point of my midheaven. That’s my only hope at this point…

    • I just had Mars trine my Aries midheaven and that didn’t bring a job. I’ve got some really good job getting aspects and I’m a Capricorn so not sure what the deal is. Got my fingers crossed the big fat earthy grand trine will move a few mountains for those of us keeping the faith. Geeze, I’ve had Jupiter in the 10th house too for a while!
      What was happening when Mercury hit some of those spots that Mars is going to trigger now?

    • That sounds hopeful, a really good natal aspect and transits, Mars Jupiter and MC says success.


    I thought I’d share this as it is pretty cool! Love it when classic transits just translate. Precession not worked out but its not an exact timing event anyway. Also like Jamie I’m having Regulus being activated by Mars although its conjunct my Moon & Venus and Trine my North Node

    Transit moon/jupiter conjunct my North Node (5th house) trining Transit Mars which is conjunct my moon/venus/regulus (9th house) trining Transit Pluto (1st house) = grand trine hitting my planets.

    Also Transit Merc/Venus (very near conjunct my ASC) trine my Jupiter (8th) trine my Saturn (11th) = grand trine

    Got a job offer connected to the MINING (8/Pluto/Mars)industry with overseas travel (9th) … I sense there are other things about to happen as well….

    • Of course my Saturn is in 4th or the second grand trine woudlnt work
      Just obsessing about the TRANSITING Saturn about to hit my mars!

  5. I noticed transiting asteroid 389, Industria, is pretty close to conjunct your Mars right now – seems like a good omen for your Mars-Return!

    • Thanks for finding that one. I certainly have been industrious these last few days. Been so worked up though I haven’t been able to focus on readings. Been obessive over resttyling the sidebar.

  6. Hi Jamie and Marina , It doesn’t look scary from a sidereal view.
    We all have these Mars returns every two years , but I hear ya on the cosmic weather ,lots of action right now.
    As a transit Mars is in your first Lunar house, good. 9th house conjunction to natal , maybe spiritual God matters in your life or long journeys are ahead.
    Saturn via sidereal view is entering it’s exalted sign Libra as it conjuncts your Venus and Mercury. This ends your 7 1/2 year Sani Sati period Where Saturn transits the Moon, Google that, the sign before and after.5-7 years back may have been difficult for you, could smooth sailing now.
    You don’t have any planets at the midpoints of the Full Moon Sun/Moon or the Neptune /Mars op transit the other day , so no negatives from those as far as I can tell at a glance.
    You may feel an extra lift of energy from Mars right now.


    • Go Sidereal! I love that news. Thank you Steve 🙂 And you are right, things were really quite bad for Jamie 7 years ago. Oooh lets hope smooth sailing now.
      We’ve both had enough mid-life crisis, Uranus half-return action thank you!

    • Yes, thanks Steve. If I were to use signs I would usse sidereal. I prefer though to focus on the stars or their constellations. Either way, 29 degrees Is definitely Leo however you look at it.

  7. Jamie thanks so much for sharing with us your own chart and transits, it made me feel that yes, we’re all in this together and some days we have good transits and some days we don’t. 11.11.11 brought nothing for me so far although I have no idea where anything is in my chart right now, but my tom kitten had his little knackers nicked so he’s sure to be feeling something.

  8. Four hours before my Mars return and I’m exhausted already. Four days in a row I’ve only been getting about three hours sleep. Put creative energy into redesigning the sidebar among other things. Lets see how Marina reacts when she wakes up.Today has been our busiest day ever for traffic on the website, a combination of the full moon and 11/11 post.

  9. Well My 8th house leo sun is on regulus degree (8/22/1969), yesterday was torture. Today the north node is on my 11th house mars next door to venus. Confused yes I am. Hoping for a rapid turnaround today or at least a helping hand!
    Good luck Jamie!

  10. Mars in Virgo is industrious and industrially neurotic. With the Saturn and Venus stuff, beware of falling masonry, especially ornate masonry or maybe build yourself something in stone… A shrine? Get a nice crystal? Use something of a stony bony nature as a conduit for the worry Mars in Virgo will exert….
    Examine your divorce papers and feel smug…. Or look for mistakes….!… Spend time alone in temporary virgoan sack cloth and visit the inner temple? Congratulate all the buttresses you have been able to construct for self preservation or preservation of partnership and work…. Go vegan… Get a mortgage… Be constructive or get a wrecking ball and be constructively reconstructive!,, and so on….

    • “industrious and industrially neurotic”. Definitely, and as LB found we have asteroid Industria there too!. With the Saturn on Venus thing, I have been attending to legal kind of things, life insurance, reorganizing debt, paying off bills for school. Responsibility for money. Added Google adds to the website and Marina was OK about it. Saturn steady stream of money for the long term.

  11. Thank you for posting this Jamie. I’m about to go through the same thing in my chart regarding Saturn transiting my natal Venus (24 degrees Libra) and Neptune (1 degree Scorpio). The last time Saturn did this was in Oct. ’82 and that was without doubt the worst year of my life. And today, Mars tranists my natal Pluto (both of which are my ruling planets). In my chart, Venus is quincunx my Mars (2nd house) in Pisces so Saturn has already triggered that angle whereupon I was laid off from a job I held for 10 years, but that is a good thing because I hated that job but a bad thing because of the current economic client. The Mars transit over Pluto triggers a square to my Sun, Mercury, Saturn and North Node. I have been working the past few weeks non-stop to get another job. Please let us know how the Saturn transit over your Venus goes. I’m very interested to know how it affects you.

    • I will keep you updated Christoph. Seems good so far. I really think that when we get hit hard by Saturn transits we learn a lot and it forces us to move in a new directio better suited to what we really want or need. So then the next time we get a hard aspect from Saturn to that same spot it can turn out much more positive. Like I say, Saturn can be a late bloomer. When you’re older and wiser he rewards.

      • Yep, Saturn is the great task master. Helps you realize what’s working and what isn’t working in your life. It is often a painful process at the beginning but if you work hard at it, it eventually will pay off. My job loss has forced me to make a course correction in my career which I am pretty excited about.

  12. Holy crap, you must be a few months older than me or younger maybe (retrogrades in my chart). I’m January 1956 and I too got fired from a job I was trying to leave anyway (why they fired me). That happened when Mercury was exactly conjunct my Pluto last summer. That freed me up to move back home across the country but wait! Retro Merc delayed me with a crisis but now I’m all moved and job hunting all day long when I know there’s nothing out there. Although I did have one really good interview…a month ago. So hey, Do you have the Jupiter Pluto conjunction that I have? I have my fingers crossed that Mars making a grand trine with Jupiter and Pluto while it conjuncts my natal jupiter pluto conjunction will make something happen! Merc’s transit there made something happen (getting fired) so you’d think Mars would follow up! So far nothing! Day’s not over yet though. I at least rented out my old house which is a big load off.. If you feel comfortable doing it friend me on facebook and send me your data. I’m curious and nosy mainly…

    • Okay, which Mary Mueller are you on Facebook? I got multiple hits when I searched for your name there. In answer to your question, I was born on 11/20/56 at 12:22 p.m. in Amarillo, TX.

  13. pardon me jamie but the new american ephemeris has cerces@ 16.27 pisces(not aries) and that’s a good thing because where it configs w/ your sat.opp to venus/mercury in the 4th looked like a terrible loss. having cerces in the 3rd opp/moon/jupiter accounts for your nervious worry about loss that probably won’t come to pass, although you may be dissappointed by lack of communication from a loved one, and having to return a purchase. anyway your chart is sympathitic to mine, except that I’m supposed to look at venus and moon. Leo mars in a mans chart is great, a 10/hs venus/mercury is pretty flashy too. I see you taking the stage at some point great as the MC. all that virgo gives the sun a power to love and heal all creatures, love of small animals and kids. sat/aries works here too…other wise a woman might totally dominate

    • That’s a lovely interp thanks Lucy. Yes I have been dominated by women before. But know it couldn’t be better. Marina and I have both met our match as far as that goes. I don’t mind transits opposite my Jupiter because it means that Ceres also trines my DC.

  14. Thanks for sharing!

    Chiron in 8th house and Lillith on the same 8th house has brought me to bankruptcy, and I can say that I´m not sure I´m through with it, even though it is not longer on 8th house… uf! heavy, really!


  15. Jamie,

    I have my mars return coming up this Friday, and it kind of has me puzzled. Mars will be in Mars Return 7th House, but not make any aspects to anything else, except a semisextile to the Sun, which will be in my Mars Return 8th House and a square to the MR Midheaven.

    Other planets will make lots of aspects (there will be a grand trine, and a Cardinal T-square, the moon will be conjunct my asc in Sag), but I’m not sure if Mars being unaspected will make it more or less powerful.

    I’m coming off of a long period of stagnation (Saturn square Mars in previous Mars Return, Saturn Return, and Saturn square Sun all in the last few years) so I’d really like to get my life going again. Any advice? Will I be less blocked the next few years?



  16. Hi Jaime. I have this transit coming up and mars opp Uranus in my birth chart. I looked back at the last one in 2015 and it was horrible. It also does. It look like I have whole lot helping me out. Is there? I don’t know a lot about the fixed stars. 12/13/1973 0141 am (Minnesota USA).
