The Moon is in shooting straight from the hip, wild, freedom-loving Sagittarius. This is Big Bronco busting Boxing Day energy.
JUPITER in LIBRA exactly opposes URANUS in ARIES @ 10:35 am PST/1:35 pm EST/ 6:35 pm GMT. This is the first of three exact squares which continue in 2017. JUPITER is the ruler of both SAGITTARIUS and PISCES and these two Zodiac signs feature prominently today.
This is wild opposing energies at the 20+ degrees which features these days. Pluto makes it a Cardinal Cross from 16 degrees CAPRICORN.
Freedom, fairness, justice, outspoken honesty, revolution, dropping out and running away to unknown adventures beckons with these two planetary influences.
MARS brings in further tension as he makes a 135-degree, sesquiquadrate aspect with Jupiter in LIBRA and a 45 degree semi-square to Uranus in ARIES just before the exact square. These are irritating aspects like flies annoying a horse.
Mars conjunct the South Node at 5+ degrees ♓ PISCES.
This indicates a completion of karmic cycles. Especially those begun 19 years ago and nine and a half years ago. Do those cycles ring any bells? This energy can work two ways. Mars can enhance and empower the negative side of Pisces through denial, avoidance, self-medicating, spacing out and passive-aggressive behaviors. Martial energy can also boost our drive and desires to release these old karmic patterns which have kept us stuck in those repeating co-dependent, victim or martyr patterns.
Mars lets down his guard in Pisces allowing him to work for the greater good of all, as individual egos are put aside. At its highest, most spiritual side, Mars in Pisces dissolves all hardness and resistance. Our energy unites with the source. Mars in Pisces is the Grail Knight who serves to defend and protect the Divine Feminine.the Holy Grail.
By synchronicity I just watched Mad Max Fury Road which is all about the Warrior who protects and defends and frees the Divine Feminine.
Have you seen this movie? My son Elijah brought it. It’s super adrenaline, hard rock, macho energy but it is all about saving the Feminine. A modern Knights tale. As Joseph Campbell famously wrote that the modern hero archetype morphs and changes but is eternally alive.
Use this time wisely. A new year is dawning, The Cardinal opposition of Jupiter and Uranus repeat in 2017 on March 2 @ 22+ degrees and September 28 of 2017 @ 27+ degrees Aries/Libra.
Questions to ask:
Where do I need to stop conforming to societies dictates and appearances? Where do I need to liberate myself in my relationships? What new adventures do I need to seek? What do I need to let go of first so that I can live more authentically and feel freer?
This is powerful energy. If you have planets around 5 degrees PISCES/VIRGO or GEMINI and SAGITTARIUS the NODAL energy of choice is more powerful for you. The North NOde is at 5 degrees VIRGO. My North Node is 4.59 degrees PISCES. For me Mars is exactly on my natal North Node with the South Node reversal in transit. I need to let go to move forwards.
How are you feeling these energies? Mars in Pisces submerges our libido and makes us feel rather tired. Don’t push your energy. Allow, let go, submerge, flow. This is a great time for art making, creativity, meditation, charity work and ceremony.
It’s intense. Please share widely all writing is copyright of Tara Greene

I actually saw the movie to put my big toe into the waters of Mad Max……violent….ending incredible, ya hoo. loved the protection of the womenâs energy, yikes again the women being used and the breast milk….something satisfying about it, particularly the end . Reminds me of years ago watching Charles Bronson in m.m.m.m what was the name? Anyway he went out and killed bad guys and I came out of the theatre feeling incredible but worried about myself because well, nice girls arenât supposed to like that? wow, years ago. love the horse in the photo changing the subject….he looks like a wild mustang? ok, happy boxing day and thank you. Barbara in Virginia (well, actually I wasnât a nice girl but I presented like I was )
thanks Barbara. Yes we were talking about Mad Max today. It was my son who suggested it. Then it just fit in with the Astrology aspect. We thought it needed to have more space. It was too intense.
Incredibly tired at the end of the day today. Just felt totally worn out and my mind was blank. It was a strange sensation. Almost like absorbing all the energies of this entire year in one evening. In one big whoosh! Mars on the South node. I must admit I dont like the sound of it!! Always good to read your take on it Tara, it helps to know why!!

Mars on the South NOde is not bad in itself necessarily. It really depends on where it is in your natal chart.
