Excerpt from Patreon – This week begins on a tough note as Mars moves in to square Saturn on August 24, the first of three squares due to the upcoming retrograde of our warrior planet. There is deep frustration because nothing can move fast under this influence. Saturn holds Mars in check, like a stern sergeant major barking orders. Saturn is the reins, the brake, the no, the block and all Mars wants is to get to it and get gone. Positively, this is a great muscle builder – whether it’s pumping it up through resistance training or working on internal ‘muscles’ such as those that deal with patience, perseverance and commitment. Mars square Saturn can be super constructive if we channel our energies effectively. In many ways, this aspect feels like an assault cause, gruelling to get through but mighty satisfying once your cross the finish line.
