Mars conjunct the Sun

When Mars and the Sun team up, anything is possible.  The energy of desire is made conscious and we KNOW what we want.  When Mars and the Sun meet in Aries, we want something NEW.  And we want it NOW!

There are many different versions of the Sabian symbols, images that speak to the 360 degrees of the zodiac.  The degree of the Mars/Sun conjunction is 28* Aries, and there are some interesting differences between two of them.

Dane Rudhyar's Astrological Mandala gives this image:  A large audience confronts  the performer who disappointed its expectations.   This symbol seems to indicate that when we have high hopes and great expectations, they cannot be sustained for long if these hopes are not met quickly.  This might be relevant to those people who expected something physical to happen on 12/21/12.  No, the aliens didn't come and open a portal for us to escape our earthly life.    What 12/21/12 indicated is that a great cosmic Age ended and a new one began.  So we have a responsibility now to protect and grow this new life.

In Steven Eardley's Revised Sabian Symbols, we seem to have an opposite image.  A crowd applauds a man who shattered a dear illusion.  I love opposites!  They fit so well together, don't they?  This image speaks about exposing hypocrisy and liberating the mind by cutting through false ideas.

We can bear this tension of opposites and say, it is time to let go of expectations of deliverance and take responsibility for our lives and our world.  It is time to expose the hypocrisy of the patriarchal system, that shaped our lives and our world.

Happy Sun/Mars day!
