RED ALERT DAYS are now to December 14 as Mars the warrior planet squares Pluto, Lord of Death on Dec. 6 as Mars also triggers the Blood Moon Eclipse point of April 4, 2015 @ 14+ degrees Libra.
There will also be a rare occultation of Venus by the Moon early on December 7th. I will write about that separately. Mars will also oppose Uranus, the planet of chaos, atomic energy, revolution and freedom Dec. 10.
More CARDINAL CROSS energy again. It ain’t over till it’s over. These tension filled aspects are in effect for about 2 weeks.
Mars, the Warrior God, of action, testosterone driven, aggressive, violent and defensive has been approaching a very intense square- a hard aspect with PLUTO, Lord of Death and Rebirth which is exact on December 6th. The tragic San Bernardino shootings on Dec 2 is one such aspect of that Mars/Pluto Scorpion-like energy. I send prayers to all the victims and their families. Yes there have been more and more Terrorist attacks and mass shootings in the U.S. than ever before. These degrees have been under incredible tension since 9/11. see end of article.
Mars, weakened in Libra right now, performs in a passive-aggressive manner. Mars will still pack a very powerful punch in more ways than one as he travels through the peak energy middle degrees now.
Mars in the Tarot is Trump # 16

Mars catalyzing the eclipse degree can bring on hostility and tension which has been brewing since then. Trying to get some peace and balance is very difficult right now. I predict HIGH ALERT DANGER from Terrorist attacks, planes shot down, very chaotic wild energy, explosions, volcanic eruptions, high winds and erratic weather. It will most certainly be difficult in reaching negotiations such as the Paris Climate Conference now. Everyone will have short fuses, tempers will be very short. Be careful as best you can, not to trigger anyone, you may feel like you are walking on eggshells.
Deep breathing and daily meditation is essential in these Intensely walking on a razor’s edge times.
December 9-10 when Mars opposes URANUS, brings even more chaos into the mix and keeping that red alert button on High. Uranus and Pluto both rule Nuclear energy. This is a very dangerous time. There could be nuclear bombs exploded, or leaks at Nuclear Power Plants, or stolen nuclear weapons, hostage takings, or simply mass chaos and numerous violent outbursts. If it wasn’t enough that already we hear about Muslim Terrorist attacks all over the world almost daily and mass shootings in the U.S. too often. Countries with planets at mid-Cardinal Degrees are likely to be affected the most. The U.S. Sun at 13+ degrees Cancer, the Philipines, Saudi Arabia, Libya.
The Tower Card in the Tarot was the literal Archetype that the world experienced at 9/11. Astrologically that tragic event was also triggered by planets. Saturn at 14+ degrees of Gemini,and Pluto was at 12+ degrees of Sagittarius sitting on the U.S. Ascendant at 12 degrees Sagittarius in the Sibley chart.
The first attack at 8:46 am on 9/11 had Mercury and the Ascendant at 14+ degrees of LIBRA!
These degrees will be reactivated as Saturn touches the Pluto degree starting in January 2016 then opposes Saturn’s degree until early March. Then from mid- April with Saturn Retrograde passing again over 12 and 14 degrees Sagittarius till the end of May.
JUPITER in VIRGO starts to square Saturn right at the Spring Equinox of 2016 which also features a lunar Eclipse on March 23 at 3 degrees Libra. Jupiter and Saturn will be in a very tight square within an orb of 2 degrees for three months from early March until early June.
Saturn will cross the degrees again from early October to Mid-November moving Direct.
NOTE: JUPITER will cross the 12-14 degrees of LIBRA in November 2016 also reactivating the Cardinal Cross energy. On June 1st Neptune gets into the picture at 12 degrees Pisces being within 2 degrees of an exact opposition to Jupiter. These two planets of expansion, justice, laws, foreigners, and Pisces fantasy,and delusion will bring another level of awareness, compassion, worry, smoke, and religious worship, danger from viruses, gases and other invisible and karmic enemies into the picture.
Pluto will still be applying to square the Cardinal Cross degrees from 2015 for all of 2016.
Venus has just entered Scorpio on December 4. Venus and Mars are in mutual reception until December 29 when Venus enters Sagittarius. That means they aid and abet each each other. Venus is acting as the warrior bad cop now and Mars is the nice guy good cop. We will see how much influence this mutual reception has on toning down Mr. Mars’ usual warrior action.
