Excerpt from Patreon – The Sun’s square to Mars, also on February 1, adds tension as well as heat. Given that the Sun is now in Aquarius, this aspect tends to ‘fan the flames’. Sparks fly as passions grow. The challenge with this aspect is that we identify strongly with what we want or desire and can feel threatened or angry when we don’t attain our objective. We take things more personally and egos become animated. We may be more impetuous, impulsive or aggressive and we can be more accident prone as a result. We need to slow down or hold back but we don’t want to. Positively, we can channel this energy into hard physical work or exercise as this is also an energy boost – but we still need to guard against pushing ourselves too hard. Don’t tear a muscle. Pallas, also in Aquarius trines the North Node today too favouring a cool head. If we can dial down the noise of the Sun square to Mars, we may find that there is an easier solution than to keep kicking whatever we think is in our way.
