Mars conjoins my natal Saturn in Pisces at just a few minutes before midnight tonight.
The last time this aspect occurred in my horoscope was in December 2018. I went back to see what I had written on this blog and — surprise, surprise — I was in a very similar mood to the mood I am in today.
As a Capricorn, I don’t feel oppressed by most aspects to Saturn; I don’t have a difficult time exercising self-discipline when that is what the universe is telling me to do. I seem to have a more difficult time when Saturn is moving over particular points in my chart (like over the past couple of years where it not only met up with my natal sun, but also with my IC).
Unless Mars is stationary, it doesn’t do much more than irritate me and/or invigorate me. In this instance, I don’t feel like I’m being attacked by the red planet, but rather instructed by the universe to direct my energy into more selfish pursuits as the conjunction occurs in my fifth house.
I don’t want to come across as a jerk for appearing to be overly self-involved while America is burning, but I’m a Canadian and I need to constantly remind myself of that fact. I’ve got my own world to worry about.
So, that’s what I’m going to do . . .
