Mars opposition Uranus: December 23-27

'Sombra' by JM Serrano (March 2008, public domain)

This is just something of a reminder that there is now an opportunity in the making (theoretically) if we will allow ourselves to work through our sticking points. At some level or in one or more areas of our lives we are in conflict with someone or some thing…but that conflict isn’t about them – it’s about us.

What we are trying to do now is either reconcile or achieve some sort of freedom to operate (or perhaps combine) our own inner person – that person inside who really needs to simply be who they are – with some sort of ‘external’ thing. For you this may be something which is ‘expected of’ you. Or that you’re ‘expected’ to be or become. You may disagree with some idea, some rule, someone else’s way of doing something – or even their attempt to change you.

Questions of how ‘overt’ something is and the ‘intent’ behind it rise going into this period. Then, as we get past the moment when Aries-Libra oppositional polarities create an intensity of experience (however that occurs) this energetic will become more abstract, more diffuse, more generalized both in time and space.

Our time and space.

The Moon will be in Virgo for much of this time…the Moon enters Virgo on December 22nd at 7:20 in the evening UT/+0 time and doesn’t move on into Libra on December 25th at 6:18 in the morning (UT/+0). If you feel stressed, take a breath. Try not to let everyone and everything else affect you. A lot of people are going to be getting more and more intent on various things during this time which isn’t going to help. By decompressing our focus we think more clearly now and get more done, more easily.

As the Moon moves into Libra, look for situations to fluctuate – some, wildly. This doesn’t have to be bad – far from it. Surprises as well as shocks could be on the menu, which says nothing about whether they’re good or bad. By experiencing the day instead of trying to ‘make it work’ the flexibility which is such a hallmark positive wherever Uranian energies are concerned is accessed. Taking care is always good, taking ourselves too seriously – probably not!

Once the Moon shifts into Scorpio on the 27th at just shy of 2 in the afternoon UT/+0 time (adjust to your local time zone) an airy lack of necessity gives way to the ‘I need to deal with something’ sense which is so very Moon in Scorpio (which we all no doubt remember from the recent September-October lead-in to November’s Scorpio solar eclipse, right?). As always under transiting Moon in Scorpio (which in this case lasts for the next couple of days) we tend to try to ‘safeguard’ ourselves most of all from our need to discover more about who we are.

This is worth mentioning here because not only is this the very sort of ‘resistance’ Mars-Uranus energetics seem so very good at blowing through, but given that Mars is the ‘in door’ ruler where  Scorpio is concerned, it is to be suspected that many a person (maybe even you) will take many a step towards something they’ve been hesitant about.

Or maybe it’s something they’ve just been dying to do – but had to wait for.

Mars-Uranus connections indicate a change of circumstance or ‘rate of processing.’ Where we are already doing things it can help us or indicate that for good or ill we’re pushing something beyond some limit. And that can be good. Of course, it can make for a lot of breakage, too – especially if or where we have been resisting something about our Self or something we have gotten into…or where we clearly know we need to do something but have been just not getting to it.

Come to think of it…if you see Santa, tell him to be careful. Jumping down chimneys and landing on  rooftops while entirely Uranus/Mars in the sense that it’s an unusual occupation (…yes, I’d like to apply for that chimney jumper job…?) would not be something to risk one’s neck doing on such a day with such a transiting global transit.

In other words, like they say on the TV shows, if you see Santa do his thing, do no attempt this trick at home. Santa is an experienced elf – you aren’t.

Or are you?

This Mars-Uranus opposition will have a short term effect. It will also be part of a far longer-term Mars-in-Libra transit we all will be experiencing for months to come.
