Mars in Scorpio
This Warrior is resolute, decisive and an excellent strategist. He understands the game of war and doesn’t always play by the rules. He is a fierce dealer of death and, in his shadow, he can be cruel.
In Egyptian myth, Mars is allied with Set who is both loyal protector and ruthless betrayer. Set is a Warrior King, one who rules through conquest. Scorpio is allied with Bast, the awakener of our Holy Longing. This expression of the Cat Goddess is the seducer luring her prey to their death, toying with them before dealing the fatal blow.
Scorpio is a fixed sign and these natives are marked by a focused determination. They notice what others do not see and hear what is not spoken. They are no strangers to the Underworld and travel there willingly to confront their demons. Undeterred by the darkness, they are brave companions to any experiencing a Dark Night of the Soul.
Mars will transit through Scorpio from October 30 until December 13. During this period, Mars/Set will square Saturn on November 10 and oppose Uranus on November 17, setting the stage for the third and final exact Saturn/Uranus square on December 24. The combination of these energies is always challenging and this transit will be particularly intense. Be prepared for unexpected eruptions from the underworld.
