Since the Mars square Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto aspects can be quite volatile and noticeable (especially the ones with Saturn and Pluto) and we are nearly finished the third and final series of these aspects (Mars (in Taurus) square Saturn (in Aquarius) on Jan. 13, 2021 and Mars square Jupiter on Jan. 23, 2021), below is a compilation of the astrological posts from last year regarding these aspects.
According to Robert Hand: ‘’Mars is an energy planet. Specifically it rules the energy that an individual uses to maintain himself in the face of pressure from his environment… Mars is also connected with work and physical energy, and often its transit signify a day when you feel very energetic and vigorous. In fact one way to ensure that a Mars transit will not cause disputes or arguments with others, which is a sign of malfunctioning Mars energy, is to have plenty of hard work to do. The negative side of Mars most often manifests itself when there is no other outlet for its energies…The only real danger with Mars is that its energies, when sublimated to the physical level, can signify accidents, specifically from burns or fire, and illnesses involving fever and infection. This is often the result of frustrated ego energies, although you may have to dig around in your psyche to realize this. You must learn to express your resentments and anger, for they are a legitimate part of your being’’ (217-218).
