Mars in Sagittarius

Post by Jim Eshelman » Thu Feb 06, 2020 3:48 pm

Mars will pass through Sagittarius February 9 to March 22. What will we see in the top headlines during this time?

During the entire time, Jupiter and Pluto also will be in Sagittarius. (Saturn left for Capricorn a week or so ago.) We can expect many of the themes that Pluto in Sagittarius have brought for many years and that Saturn in Sag emphasized for the last three, but with a new spin. Among those themes were issues of internationalism (often anti-internatonalism) impact both foreign affairs and immigration; economic and social privilege; extreme class-based economic (earning etc.) disparity; nationalism or extreme patriotism; religion; and similar Sagittarian themes that may touch on philanthropy, benevolence, generosity, pomp & circumstance, aristocracy or royalty, and the courts.

In humans with Mars in Sagittarius at birth, we expect the following character:
Idealist (not necessarily pragmatic). Serious about subjects of interest: sincere, devoted, studious (seems hardworking; it's really love or zeal). Passionate with beliefs; moral courage; persuasive. Innovative, ambitious, strategic. Thrives in classic styles. Many exude air of mystery or fantasy (branding?). Many are identified with ideologies, -ists, & -isms.

Mars is now in Sagittarius. I expect the news themes to change immediately, based on what I've seen for the last almost six months.

LOL, I love it when this stuff works like clockwork...

The first full day after Mars enters Sagittarius, what's the top story of the morning? It's the Academy Awards - but not just Sagittarian because it's the Hollywood elite's favorite dress-up night and an honoring of excellence. No, beyond that, the big winner of the night - best film, director, screenplay, and more - was a foreign film about social inequality and class conflict that uses staircases throughout the film to show vertical separation and movement up and down the social and economic ranking.

It doesn't get much more Sagittarian than that.

Other primary news stories are carry-overs. Whether they will be replaced by new themes or will migrate into Sagittarian versions of the previously Scorpio stories remains to be seen, but I'm not going to start by claiming they're suddenly Sagittarian stories. In order, they are the Wuhan coronavirus, which is spreading at an accelerated rate; the Democratic primaries, still reviewing Iowa while shooting for New Hampshire tomorrow night; President Trump's "Friday night massacre" of his political enemies; and Thailand's mourning of the military base / shopping mall shootings that killed 29 people last week.

New Hampshire's primary today (pre-scheduled) and the coronavirus are the lead articles today - I'm not sure they're Mars in Sagittarius stories - but Story 3 today is Trump's budget proposal that would slash Medicaid, food stamps, and other support programs - intensifying vertical economic separation, perhaps savagely - cutting foreign aid - while pouring liberated funds into military expansion (including NASA). These are all visibly linkable to Mars in Sagittarius.

In general, these won't be part of the budget, which the House has to write, but it does signify the tone of the moment.

I think Bernie's (albeit predictable and unsurprising) win in New Hampshire is another example of "economic inequity" trending as a hot news topic.

If cronyism turns out to be a Mars through Sagittarius theme then William Barr overruling the sentencing request on Roger Stone, resulting to all four prosecutors on the case resigning... that's an example of cronyism.

I think the scandal at the Department of Justice (around Barr's intervention in the Stone sentencing and other matters) may turn out to be the main story of this transit (in the way that we saw inquiry for Virgo, weighing evidence for Libra, and impeachment battle for Scorpio). I don't have the exact form of this sorted out yet, but the Sagittarius theme speaks to it in several ways - I don't want to over-interpret until the story clarifies itself. (Possible direct justice-legalities issues, crony entitlement, or maybe something I'm missing altogether.)

The coronavirus story is shifting but, again, it's premature for me to assert anything on this. Just watching.

A few other stories may be skirting the territory (or clarifying what it should be). For example, Israel's territorial seizures and the operation of predominantly Israeli corporations in those territories is getting scrutiny by the U.N. and deemed illegal. This will be noise for a few days at least,

It's an attack on our judicial system, and more widely an attack on military cultural institutions (a purple heart recipient walked out of the white house (with his brother) for telling the truth = an attack on military honorees and their families.)

Is there going to be a dismantling of the para-military police institutions that allow police to get away with pretty much anything (like shooting black people through windows and beating up their wives with no repercussions and threatening their neighbors)
