Mars And Saturn (And Mercury in Retrograde!) Bring The WHAMMY In

   
   When in the same sign, they contradict and obstruct each other.
 
   Saturn tries to rein Mars in and slow him down.
 
   Mars tries to kick Saturn on the backside and speed him up.
   
   They clash... and smash... making things crash.
 
   (Okay - it's getting late. I'll try not to do that Dr. Seuss stuff again.)
 
   My teachers always referred to these two when they get together as "the planets of war."
 
   Mars sits in each of the twelve signs of the zodiac for just six weeks. (Again - he's speedy.) While Saturn parks in one sign for roughly two and a half years.
 
   So Mars catches up to Saturn a couple of times a year, making this combination of the two difficult planets getting together in the same place in the night sky not astronomically unusual or special.
 
   Which is why NASA isn't writing about it in their newsletter this month... (But they sure are talking about that super exciting and successful Mars mission! As my husband likes to say while watching scientists on TV in awe, "Go nerds!")
 
   And it's not even astrologically all that big of a deal. MOST of the time.
  
   But THIS time, this month, it's likely going to be more of a problem. 
 
   Why?
 
   Because of Rahu joining them, ramping up the frustration they bring. And because Mercury, the planet of communication, goes retrograde today for the rest of February, causing all kinds of potential mix-ups and misunderstandings... fun, fun.

If you've been feeling funky lately, it's likely because you were born on planet Earth! (And that you live in this solar system—I'm just guessing!)
