Mars Opposite Saturn

A Big Headache.

Kelli Fox

Keywords: tension, frustration, defensiveness
Frequency: Once every two years. Duration: 20 Days (half deg. per day average)

Confrontations and unpleasantness are oh-so-likely under this two-week, challenging aspect. It’s David and Goliath -- the little guy vs. the corporation -- a motorcycle against a tractor-trailer.

It’s a pretty sure bet who’s going to win (that David thing, after all, was a fluke). So the big guy walks away with a self-satisfied smirk and Mr. Common Man in the Street is left feeling impotent, enraged, bitter and cynical. Thank goodness this transit only comes around once every two years. It demands a lot from us in order to extract its highest potential of responsible action and controlled will. We must learn to overcome fear with courage, to control our anger and focus our desires. In the short term, we should try to avoid arguments and defensiveness, even if someone else disagrees with us. There are better ways to resolve disputes. Resentment is not helpful, nor is a ‘scorched earth’ policy. It may be best simply to hang out by ourselves as much as possible in order to avoid confrontations with others.
